I really had a lot of fun creating the Tent fold Easter Designs.  I found the tutorial on http://denasstampingcorner.blogspot.com/2010/03/just-magnolia-my-tent-card-tutorial.html  She has a nice tutorial on how to make the folds.  This fold has endless possibilities.  The fold is really cute and looks like a tent when complete.  I used a quarter cut piece of self stick Velcro to close the top but you can also glue the top piece together.

Materials:
Impression Obsession - Duck Set & Farm Girl
Lawn Fawn - Fancy Scalloped Circle Stackable
Memory Box - Puffy clouds, chocolate Bunny, Stitched clouds
Poppy Stamps - County Baskets
Spellbinders - Classic Ovals large & Floral Ovals

Easel Style Easter Egg-citement


 I just wanted to say thank you to all the amazing people that take the time to stop by my blog.  I find myself indoors more since it rains so much.   

For today's easel design I wanted to make the card look like a panorama Sugar Easter egg they used to sell when I was a kid.  Funny all the stores used to sell them in all colors and sizes.

Had my first Moderna vaccine 4 weeks ago and the second dose last week.  On the second dose the next day I had a sore arm and was really dehydrated but that was all. Just glad to be done.

Materials:
EK Success - Daisy Punch
Impression Obsession - Duck Set & Farm Girl
Martha Stewart - Grass Punch
Memory Box - Stitched Clouds & Woven Basket
Poppy Stamps - Egg Cetera
Spellbinders - Classic Ovals Large & Floral Oval
White Glitter card stock

Birthday Slider Card Design


 
Slider Parts
I wanted to show you can make a slider card design without using a die.  You just need to cut the slider part at least 1" wide and then make a one inch mark on either end of the slider. My card was 6 inches wide so I marked mine at the 1 inch and 5 inch.  I used a hole punch and punched out the two one inch marks then used a craft knife and ruler to cut the channel on both sides.  Add a thin piece of mounting tape along the top and bottom, as shown in picture.  If slider is moving towards the right add the finale mounting tape on left side.

Next punch a circle I used 3/4" circle punch three times and glued them together.  Add the mounting tape in the center of circle, use two pieces on top of each other so it sticks up above the slider channel.  I cut the sliding piece  twice and glued them together just to make it stiffer mine is 1/2 inch wide it fits nicely into the channel and is 8 inches long.  Glue circle on end of sliding piece put into channel to make sure it moves smoothly.  If it does then attach to card with the sliding paper already inside the slider.    

Materials:
Impression Obsession - Girl With Easter Basket
Lawn Fawn - Puffy Cloud Borders & Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frame
Martha Stewart _ Balloon punch
Poppy Stamps - Sentimental Happy Birthday
3/4" circle punch

Z-Fold Here comes the Bunny

Folded

 
Unfolded

While driving by a church recently they have a marquee board out front, the message read
Eat alphabet soup have a vowel movement
I still laugh just thinking about the message.

My first attempt at making a z-fold card, I had so much fun creating it. I like that they fold flat for mailing.

Materials:
Impression Obsession - Easter Joy, duck Set & Brick House
Memory Box - Fuzzy Bunnies

Pop-Up Easter bunnies

Happy March, I can't wait for the weather to warm up and Spring to arrive.  I planted some bulbs in pots last Fall and left them in the garden shed.  I was so surprised they sprouted without water or light.  I moved them onto the front porch and a squirrel dug up the Tulips so I now have  a cover over the pots.

Thank you all all the wonderful comments on my last post.  

The picture does not show it but I added the Taylored Expression gate die on all sides of the box then added a punched grass strip to the bottom.  Each panel has the bunny verse die cut out also.

Materials:
Elizabeth Craft - Curvy Leaves
Impression Obsession - Bunny set
Lawn Fawn - Scalloped Box Card Pop-up
Martha Stewart - Grass punch
Memory Box - Kempsey Basket
Poppy Stamps - Egg Cetera
Taylored Expressions - Garden Arbor & Gate (Just the gate)
