Basket Full of Chickies and Bunnies

Hello stampers! I've been sick for awhile. Lots of coughing and weak at times. Finally got my energy back to crafting again. Anyway, I'm thankful for the good weather here in Vancouver. It has been beautiful sunshine and warm days for the past 2 weeks. Nothing like the sunshine to brighten up the soul.



I made a basket to hold the chick and the bunny boxes I made to give to the school kids this week. The basket is not strong enough to hold all the boxes. After filling them with treats they're heavy. The card stock is not thick enough to do the job. I have to hold the bottom of the basket so the handle wont break. The basket looks pretty though. Will need to use a thicker card stock. I know the kraft papers I have is thick enough but not the colour I'm looking for.



I added 2 flowers to the sides of the basket. I used the Fancy Flower Punch to make the flowers.



I filled each favours with candies. Candies are kids favourite of course. Even if they don't like my little creations I'm sure they'll like the candies. :)


 Thank you for stopping by! Happy Stamping!

Chicky And Bunny

Hello stampers! It is so good that we have sunshine today. I so need it. The cherry blossoms are blooming making it a lovely sight all around our neighbourhood. I just feel more energize when the weather is nice.

I made 2 animal triangle boxes. I found a video by Julie Davison on YouTube that shows you how to make these 2 cute animals.


I didn't do a good job on drawing the bunny face but it is still cute. The feet was made from an Oval Punch. I had to round one side of the oval to get the heel.



The chick's wings was made using a 1-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch and then cut it in half. The beak was made from a square folded in half.

The chick and the bunny are just too cute! Happy April Fools Day!

Thank you for stopping by! Happy Stamping!

Easter Bunny Basket

Hello stampers! I was on YouTube yesterday and came across a video by Connie Stewart. I love the basket she made so I went and made one myself using her instructions.



This basket was made using one sheet of 8-1/2" x 11" card stock . Not much waste of paper here.That's a good thing.



A "how to" video can be found on YouTube. Isn't this the cutest bunny ever? It was made from punches and a Holiday Ornaments Die. Love it! I sponged every punched out pieces in Crumb Cake ink to give the bunny some dimension. I didn't have anything fluffy for the tail so I added a cream rosette Vintage Flower for it instead.



 


I might make these for my kids to collect Easter treats that we will be hiding around the house during Easter. You'll never how the weather will be here in Vancouver (rains a lot) so doing it inside the house it safer.

Thank you for stopping by today! Happy Stamping!

Wedding Favour Milk Carton Boxes

Hello stampers! I made some samples for a friend to look at. She want me to help her make some wedding favour boxes. She chose milk carton boxes and the wedding colour will be blue. My favourite colour so it was easy to do.


I did the circle scallop design with 2 hearts in the circle for this one. The lily of the valley is stamp in Soft Suede colour.


This one is a scallop square with the word love on it. I stamp the lily of the valley a little lower than the one above and also stamp it in Soft Suede ink.


This one is different from the 2 above. I stamp the flowers from the Elements of Style stamp set in Bashful Blue ink and wrap a nice lacy blue card stock around the milk carton.

I hope she doesn't have a  hard time picking which one to use because I can't decide which one is better. I love all 3 of them.

Thank you for visiting today! Happy Stamping!

Apple Truck Birthday Card

Good day! Another truck card from the Countryside stamp set. I coloured the truck red using a blender pen. After the colour dried up it looks like pink instead. It looks nice anyway.

Easter Chick Lindt Chocolate Box

A cute little treat box for Easter. I filled the box with some Lindt chocolates. One of my favourite chocolates.


I used the A Good Egg stamp set for the main image. Such a cute little chick!



At first the chocolate eggs was rolling around inside the box so I decided make a piece of card stock with 3 holes for the eggs stay in place. I didn't have a bigger hole punch for the eggs to sit on so therefore they were put upside down inside the box. Oh well, the chocolates still tastes the same anyway.

Fabulous Florets Birthday Card

Hello stampers! First day of spring break week for my kids. They only get one week where as the public school gets 2 weeks of spring break. We went out for dim sum and then waited for Faith to finish tubing with her friends. We were going to go for a family outing but it was kind of windy and cold. The sun was shining bright though. Also, time doesn't permits. We will need to be back home in time to get ready for the Spring Revival Meeting at our church at night. It'll be too much of a rush so we decided not to go. I always look forward to hear Dr. Goetsch preach for the meeting. He's funny and I love to hear the story he tells that goes with the message he preaches.

I made a birthday card with spring colours to brighten up my day. I'm getting tired of the gloomy and wet weather. I used the Fabulous Florets stamp set for the flowers on the card and the Medallion stamp for the background on the card. Hope this card will bring you joy and a smile when you visit here.

Countryside Blue Truck Thank You Card

A masculine card using the Countryside stamp set. Such a cute truck with apples in the back. I love apples and used to decorate my house with apple decorations. I no longer have apple decors anymore but still love to eat apples though. I love granny smith apples. I love the crunchiness and the sourness of it. Yum!

Thank you for stopping by! Happy Stamping!

A scallop flower on the lid. This makes a great gift to give to someone special. Just fill it with yummy treats and it'll put a smile on a face.

Happy Birthday Ship Cards

Hello stampers! I had some crafting time today so I made 2 masculine cards. I struggle with making masculine cards sometimes but these 2 are easy to make.




I used the Open Sea stamp set and Nautical Expedition DSP to make the cards. I love the stamp set and the pattern paper that goes with it. I'm running out of the paper soon and will have look for different pattern paper to go with the stamp set.

Thank you for stopping by today! Happy Stamping!

Here is a card I made with friends few weeks ago. I forgot to post it. My friends and I had a fun time stamping together. It was their first time so it was like having a stamping class with them. I used the Elements of Style stamp set for the images. I did the roses in blue. My favourite colour. One of my friends prefer her's in pink or red.

Valentines Boxes For The Teachers

I made some boxes for the school teachers. There  are only 3 teachers so it wasn't a lot to make for.



 I used the Petal Cone Die to make the box. Do you that you can still get this die? Go to Stampin'Up! website and it is under clearance rack section. Look for this die. It is on sale while supply last. I do recommend to get this die. There is so much you can do with it. It is worth your money.




I punched two holes at the top of the boxes and tied them with a tinsel tassel. I think that what's called. It is something I have for a long time so I don't remember the name of it.



I filled each boxes with yummy jujubes.

Thank you for visiting my blog! Happy Stamping!

ETA: You can still purchase the Petal Cone Die over at Stampin'Up! website while supplies last as of Feb. 24, 2014. It is on clearance under the clearance rack.

For the past few years I have had many requests for the tutorial for this box. This past week I posted a new box I made using the instructions as the box shown above.

But, in order to complete this tutorial you will require the Petal Cone Die from Stampin'Up!. Unfortunately, this die has been retired.

Now this is my most favoured die and tutorial. Needless to say, this tutorial is for your personal use only. It is not for resale or is for holding craft classes. Thank you and enjoy!

Petal Cone Gift Box

Hello stampers! I made a gift box using the SU Petal Cone Die (retired). I love this die very much. Sad it is no longer available. I'm giving this to a friend's mom who is stamping with me tonight. I'm so excited to have friends over to stamp with me. It has been awhile.



I used the kraft card stock that was extra thick and perfect for this box. I made one using Stampin'Up!'s card stock before but not thick enough for me. I can put chocolates in there and not worry about it breaking.



I used the Fun Flowers Die and then embossed it with the Vintage Wallpaper Folder to make the flower. Add a Vintage Flower Adornment to the middle of the flower to finish it off.

Thank you for stopping by! Happy Stamping!

A Light Unto My Path Frames

Something to show you besides Valentine creations. I made two art frames using the "A Light Unto My Path" stamp set. Love this set a lot! I love lighthouses and love visiting them whenever I can. The pictures I took of these frames are not so great. Kinda dull. I use natural light that comes through my window for pictures and it wasn't a nice day that day.


This one took a little longer to make. I couldn't get everything to fit right the way I want it but finally I settle with this.

Thank you for stopping by! Happy Stamping!

Hello stampers! Here is a box that holds 4 candy sticks. It is a simple box made from the kraft paper. The paper holds the candies very well. The box measures 3-1/2" wide x 4" long and about 1/2" thick.





This time I adhere hearts to the top of each candy sticks. It adds a nice touch to the candies.

Valentine Candy Sticks Pretty Packaging

I bought a bag of Valentine candy sticks and made a pretty little pocket/holder for it. I used the framelit for the shape. Stamped it with a background stamp and then sponge around it.



Added ribbon and flowers to the front of the pocket/holder. It is only big enough to hold 2 candy sticks. I might make a different holder to see if I can put 4 candies in there.

Thank you for visiting today! Happy Stamping!
