More Peeps......


Today I would like to share a foursome of Easter cards that I created for Sunday's dinner guests.  They don't visit my blog, so I figured it was safe.  The whole idea came from this digital paper that I fell in love with. 

I started with a base of Grass Green, Pure Luxury card stock, layered on the digi paper, and added a strip of embossed, Soft Suede from SU!.  I embossed with the plaid ef from Sizzix.  My images and sentiments are from the Melanie Muenchinger set called Basket Blessings, which she designed for Gina K. Designs. I colored the peeps with OMS and colored pencils.  Each card has a different green Prima flower, with a Jolee's gemmed center.  My sponging was done with Memento, Rich Cocoa.  As for shapes, I used an SU! scalloped circle punch, and my new Labels Seventeen dies from Nestabilities.

If you look on my sidebar, My Stamp TV Gallery was spotlighted by the STV Talent Scout.  If you click on my badge, you can see some of my cards I have done for their challenges.  I was shocked to receive this honor.  I would also like to wish my DS a very Happy Birthday, today!  Enjoy!
