Easter Bunny Basket

 Hello Stamping friends!  Is this little bunny too cute or what?  The basket is made with the  petal cone die, with the bottom cut off.  I made the body of the bunny with the oval scallop frame die and punches for the rest of him.  I love how his (or hers) arms are holding the basket!  It's holding some decorated chocolates in the basket.
 And here's the tail!  Of course, I added some glitter on it :-).

And me doing the demo at Regionals.

Petal Cone Ice Cream cone card

 Hello Stamping Friends!  Here's a card using the Petal Cone Die made into an ice cream cone...another fun way to use this versatile die! 
We also had to stop at the Coach outlet store while in Branson for Regionals!  Here's Tammy showing off her beautiful new Coach bag (and working on her swaps!)..

Petal Cone Die "Diva Hot Flash Fan" !

Hello stamping friends!
When I was trying to come up with ideas of things to make with this die, my friend Dana suggested a fan!  Well, I thought that was a GREAT idea since I am in need of one often (those darn hot flashes) and this is what I came up with!  The inside has 2 dies of cardboard, the front and back have 4 dies of Rose Red.  I embellished with Springtime Vintage DS, rosettes and ribbon.  The handle is popsicle sticks that are wrapped with ribbon.
Thanks for looking and come back tomorrow for more ideas using the Petal Cone Die!

Branson Regionals and Petal Cone Die samples

Hello, Stamping friends!
I was honored to be asked by Stampin' Up! to be a Workshop Wow Demonstrator at the Branson Regionals!  I was scared to death to present in front of 100 stampers!  BUT-thank goodness, it wasn't as scarey as I thought--actually it was fun!  And thanks for the support of my fellow demos and downlines, I was able to pull it off....
I started off wearing the Petal Cone Die Party Hat.  I made it with Celebration cs and adhesives and red glitter paper.  In the next few days, I will show you the other things I created using the Petal Cone die--so come back and see!

Playing with some new stuff!

Hello friends!  Today, I want to share with you a card I made that uses the idea from a necklace that we made at Leadership.  It also uses the new "tulip" embossing folder.  The stamp set is "Clearly For You". The glare from the picture takes away the details on the birds--I did put glimmer paint on them. (but not so obvious in person!)  Also, I dyed the lace ribbon with ink to match, using a daubler.
Have a great day!

Cupcake Punch and stamps

Hello friends!
I'm having so much fun with the new punch and stamps for the cupcake!  We made this card at the make & take last weekend--and I got the idea of the circles embossed onto the cardstock from my downline, Dina.  It was one of the fave techniques we did!  Just punch your circles, adhere to the cardstock and then run it thru the Big Shot with an embossing folder!  Plus, aren't the new mini fringe balls cute?
