Chocolate Bunnies Rule!

Isn't this cute? The Chocolate Bunny stamp just screams "EMBOSS ME" so I did! I think it makes him look like real chocolate!!! I also embossed the entire card front with a floral background stamp. After adding satin ribbon, the whole card is shiny and delicious!!! But don't eat it! ;)

Stampin' Supplies:
STAMPS - Chocolate Bunny, Bella Toile
PAPER - Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink
INK - Chocolate Chip Craft, VersaMark
OTHER - Green Satin Ribbon, White Embossing Powder, Clear Embossing Powder

Here we have a simple little scrapbook page perfect for showcasing a fabulous egg hunt picture! It's a 6x6, my favorite brag book size, so adding a photo (or even 2) is a cinch!

Stampin' Supplies:
STAMPS - Inspired by Nature
PAPER - Green Galore, Kaleidoscope DSP, Whisper White
INK - Green Galore
OTHER - Large Oval Punch

Coaster Creations

This is a simple tumbled tile that you can buy at any hardware/home improvement store. They have a distressed finish and rough edges. And I'm guessing they're about 3x3" although I admit I haven't measured them.
For stamping on tiles the trick is to make sure they don't have a shiny smooth surface, or that they don't have a coating on them...these were actually very "chalky" when I bought them, which is normal. You just need to rinse them and let them dry before you attempt to make them beautiful.

I did two different versions both using the Medallion Stamp that I love so much, but the possibilities are endless! If you'd like to give it a go, I'm having a class on Saturday March 26th at 2:00 PM. Visit my website for the details!

Mmmm Mmmm Yummy

Can you believe my Gloria will be 13 on St. Patty's Day!? Where has the time gone? Cuz we all know I'm NOT getting old! LOL
We had her party last Saturday and I attempted to make a "Wonderland cake." It was the theme since we kicked off the party with Alice In Wonderland in IMax 3D...loved it!!!
Anyway, she really likes the topsy turvy cake styles so it was fitting for a "Wonderland cake." I just didn't have time to make a rabbit/pocket watch/tea cups/grinning cat...etc. so I decided "funky shapes" would have to suffice. It's a collaboration of myself and the birthday girl. We had a lot of fun getting it decorated, but what a relief when it was finished!

This little basket is pretty punchy. It's sportin' a sweet little bird punched with one of our new punches, it's only available until April 30th and it's quite popular!  I also used the Scallop Trim Border Punch I got FREE with my last order...can't beat that! And I even used a Circle Punch to make the basket handles, too easy!

Oh, and lookie what's inside...

Stampin' Supplies:
PAPER - Creamy Caramel, Pixie Pink, Pink Passion, Kaleidoscope DSP
INK - Creamy Carmel (to edge the basket)
OTHER - So Saffron Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, XL Two-Step Bird Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, Scallop Trim Border Punch*
