Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!

I'm sharing the last Easter card today.  It's the simplest one and doesn't have any interactive element.  I still like it for its simpleness:

A flat card is very postage-friendly! :)

Easter card

Third Easter card of the week!  It's also an interactive card!


It is very simple to make, with the new Lawn Fawn goodies.  The Easter Egg spins on its own and also runs the circular track around the little chick.  I kept the rest of the card simple because I do not want too many distractions and if I add too many things, the egg may not run smoothly.

There are many things I want to do with this die.  It's so fun!

Easter card

Another Easter card today!

This time it is much simpler, but it is still interactive:

The bunny is attached to a spring and it's fun to play with it:


I hope the two year old who will be receiving it will just like it as much as I like it!

Easter card

I had a great Easter/Birthday party this weekend.  Now it's time to catch up on the rest of the Easter cards.

I have to prepare those that will be mailed out (hopefully they will arrive in time).  Here's one of them:


I had loads of fun making this one.  It did take me a long time as I wasn't sure what the best way was to decorate the card.  The silly me actually had assembled the card before the stamping.  The tiny images on the background were easy but the sentiment on the front panel was tough.  In fact the ink smeared and I cut another panel to cover it up.  After that I put a row of Easter eggs to cover the joint.  Shh.....

Birthday card

I came to my blog and realized that several scheduled posts did not publish!  Oops.

But that's okay.  One of the scheduled posts was a birthday card that I decided not to give out to my nephew, because I've made another one more awesome!

The new Lawn Fawn goodies are so popular that it took a long time for my order to arrive.  I'm glad that I finally get to play with them and it is literally just in time for my nephew's birthday.

The pop-up card is certainly fun to make, and it's just as fun to color the astronaut and planets.  I hope my nephew likes it as much as I like making it.

Did you know that Lawn Fawn has started its own challenge? You can find the details here.  I look forward to participating in more of its challenges!

Thank You

I am sharing a Thank You card today.  Check it out to see if you can find a boo-boo:

What do you think?

If you look at the green slope, You'll see two layers.  The bottom layer has the stitched details while the front does not.  What happened was that when I ran the die on the paper, I put the die in the wrong direction, so the part with the stitched details was too small to ground the bunny and that's the last small piece of green patterned paper.......

Time to be creative!  So I layered those two pieces, the front one doesn't have the details but the details from the bottom one will peak through.  Not too bad, right?  This card will go to my co-worker, who is not a crafter, so I guess she won't notice the difference. :p
