Peep's Cards

Yeah Easter is almost here! I am glad in a way its early this year cause I wont be able to buy any more Reese's Easter Its a weakness for me, love the white chocolate ones. Today as I was trying to figure out what to wear Easter I realized I have put on a few pounds and it all went to my Oh well Easter is only here once a year right. :) Anyway so today I thought I share my last Easter card with you guys. And yes the card theme was around the Easter Candies everyone knows PEEPS. The famous sugary candy in the shapes of chicks and bunny's. Truth I think there super cute but I really don't care for them.
So for this card I was in a hurry so its not the finale look I really wanted but I did not have time for glitter to dry. I was going to glitter the bunny's so they looked sugary wish I had not been rushed on time. I used the cricut craft room and the cricut cart Doodlecharms. For the head I used the doodlecharms and then welded a basic circle on bottom for each one. Then welded them all together so they look like PEEPS. For the sentiment I just used the computer to print them out since I did not have any stamps with that saying. Its a very simple card not fancy at all only took a few minutes  for the cards and be a easy mass produced card to make. Well off to get my craft room picked up Blah. Thanks for stopping in and looking and as always the supplies will be listed below.

Copics and Easter card

Okay sorry for posting a day late meant to have this up yesterday but needed to finish some cards and pick my craft / guest room up cause I thought we had family coming in a found out the hub miss Anyway lest its done right. Okay so last week I got some copics and other alcohol markers, had been really wanting to try them since I have kinda got back into stamping. For those who have not worked with copics, there is a art to them. I have never worked with anything like them in my past so this was a first for me. If you get some I would say break them out and just practice and practice more. I still have not really got great with them, but getting better. I want to be able to blend better than I have with this card. I will make a post with tips I have figured out with working with them through mistakes and figuring out what papers work best. Paper and what stamp pads you use make a big difference. I wish they had this back when I took art would have been fun to work with. Okay well here is a card I made using them. I used this craft smart stamp from Michael's, thought this chick with bunny ears was cute. I am not in love with this card felt like it needed something else, its pretty simple. Well thanks for stopping in looking and I will have another card tomorrow. As always supplies listed below.

Easter card

Wow cant believe its been a week and a half since I last posted. Got involved in trying out some copic's and and trying other alcohol markers. There fun to use with stamping but there is a art to them. Anyway that will be in the next post I did make something today with the copic's so will have that post in the next day or two. But for now wanted to share this card I made for Easter. Seen a roll of burlap at Michael's and thought be fun to use this on a card. Also I picked up some awesome deals on Glimmer Mist. I could not believe how cheap they were. 1.99 per bottle of glimmer mist. I LOVE LOVE LOVE glimmer mist so I grabbed them up. They only had three colors on clearance but they were really good colors that I would use a lot. For this card I used all of them in some way. Leaf using (Kiwi) flower using (Rouge). And over all used (Cork) for some of the background paper just for some added shimmer. Was going for a distressed look with this card. Anyway will be back tomorrow with another card, thanks for dropping in. :) As always supplies listed below.
