Creatin' Cards

Hey guys! Happy Tuesday! I don't know about yall, but I am freezing this morning! It is so cold!!! Brrr!!! Mom had a conference to go to today, so I am here taking care of Daddy. He seems to be having a pretty good day so far!!! I am so glad! He is taking a nap now, so I thought I would take a minute to post some of the cards I created while scrappin' with Mom this past weekend. I hope you will be able to see these good. I did not bring my camera with me to Bama, so I had to borrow Mom's. I wanted to go outside to take pix, but it is rainy.

First up, I received the pattern for this bunny card from My Scrap Chick. It is their freebie pattern from last week. If you have a die cutting machine and would like this file, go here:

If you do not have a die cutting machine, but would still like to give this card a go...no problem!!! Fortunately, included with the download is an Adobe document. You could print out the template and hand cut it on your own!!! How awesome is that! This was such a fun card to do and I hope yall will give it a try. If you happen to stumble across this post and the pattern is no longer available on the link above (they do a new one each week), email me at aymee810@yahoo.com and I can pass it a long for ya. It is a free pattern.

I love the way this one opens up. I used some Colorbox chalk ink in 'Rouge' and 'Light Brown' to ink my bunny. I drew on his whiskers and eyes with a black journaling pen. On the back, I used the Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirl embossing folder on his tail. I used pop dots on the tail to pop it out a tad. On the inside, I used some Stampin' Up Easter stamps and some bling. Here is the card:

The card opened up:
Isn't the back so cute? I just love the tail!!!
Second, I did a really simple, clean card. I used the Cricut Home Accents cart for the flower and Mini Monograms for the sentiment. I also used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.

Third, I made this card using some scraps. The bunny is from "A Child's Year" and the scalloped square is from Mini Monograms. The stamp is from Stampabilities. I added a pink puff from some ball fringe for a tail.
Last, I really have been wanting to do a red/lime green/black/white combo colored card. So I dug in Mom's stamp bin and found this cherry stamp. I love cherries! I added in some gingham ribbon and black bling. The border punch is from Martha Stewart.

I was so glad to finish these four cards!!! It is great to be back to scrappin'! I plan on doing some more scrappin' today! Whoo hoo!
I am off to try and post Mom's cards that she finished on her blog. So if you want to, check it out in a bit...
Thank you for stoppin' by today! Have a wonderful day and Happy Scrappin'!
Pin It!

Love all your cards!!! I do have a question for you about cutting the bunny card. I don't have SCAL but I do have a craft robo and an expression. I didn't see on their website any details about the type of file you get. Any info would be greatly appreciated. I'd really like to try that bunny!!!
