Happy Easter

I am now in full Easter card mode and just got in some new products from Spellbinders and Fun Stampers Journey! They are now available for you to purchase!

I actually ordered the Ready, Set, Spring project kit (no longer available) a while back and got it yesterday.  I opened it and started playing immediately with the card kits that came in it.  I'll be adapting some of the cards for my March class.


 Isn't this card just adorable!! I used the Joyful Greetings rubber stamp set and it's coordinating die set for the eggs and the Happy Spring Minis AT stamp set for the banner. There's a lot of great elements to this card!


Don't ya just love the little bunny paper clip!  And how about the triple bow!!

The eggs are double stamped.  I stamped the whole egg with a lighter color then rolled the darker color around the edges before stamping and die cutting. 

I really like this card and will alter it a bit for class.

It's A Fan Fare Card

I have been seeing this fancy fold card in many places! After some looking around on Pinterest I found it's called a Fan Fare card.  I have made something similar years ago but never really thought about it until recently.  Then Kim Kesti at Fun Stampers Journey made one on a recent video (FaceBook link here). So, I had to give it another try.

 Here are the closed and open views of my card. I started with a piece of card stock 5 1/2" x 11" and scored at 1 1/2", 3", 5 1/2", and 8" and folded it like an accordian.

I cut my layers in 3 sizes, 2 @ 1 1/4" x 5 1/4", 2 @ 2 1/4" x 5 1/4", and 1 @ 2 3/4" x 5 1/4".

I used 2 different rubber stamp sets from Fun Stampers Journey, Faithfullness (and it's coordinating die set) and Fancy Eggs (and it's coordinating stamp set).






 Isn't this cute!!! The kite print paper is from my stash. I used a variety of inks and dies which are listed below.  

I made a FB video of making this card and it is on my YouTube channel dated Feb. 19, 2020.

I'm thinking about teaching this style of card at my March class.  I think my gals would love it!
