Monday's Easter 3D and Card Class

Well, just a quick minute to share what I've prepared for Monday evening's class!

I'm so excited ... I just can't hide it ... I'm about to lose control and I think ... better stop there, huh??!!

What do you think?! 2 full-size cards using the Everybunny stamp set, plus 5 (did I say 5??!!) 3D items!!!

I know the photo isn't the best, but I'll tell you briefly about them. I have two more photos to share that will show of certain of these projects a bit more.

On the far right is Darla Duck. Isn't she so special?! I found the idea on Stampin' Connection and had to case her. The little Concord Crush hairbow on her "up-thing" just gives her ATTITUDE!!
I used the Fancy Favor die for the bag and the Tasteful Trim die for the handle -- with a lot of scrimping and saving, I was able to make the whole bag and handle with exactly 1/2 sheet of So Saffron 12x12 c/s. It took finaglin' though!!

Just in front of Darla is the sweet little purse. This purse die was available to demonstrators for preorder in the month of March, and is available to all customers using the Summer Smooches special starting tomorrow ... for the entire month of April. I used Pool Party c/s for the purse, and fastened it together with Tombow glue. I decided that the sticky strip was a tad too wide for the narrow side flaps, and Snail wasn't going to cut it. I didn't have to hold the pieces together ... I think I found another "go-to" adhesive! I found that 4 Hershey's Miniatures fit perfectly in this little purse. I'm going to use a velcro dot to fasten the front though -- it's easier than mangling the scallop topper.

To the left of the little purse is a Carrot Sour Cream container that I first found on Pinterest. If you haven't been to that site yet, be prepared so spend hours being amazed at the creativity that exists out there! I used a 4"x5" piece of Tangerine Tango DSP from the Brights DSP stack and followed directions that I found on Splitcoast. I used my crimper for the "greens" -- next time I'll add a few more to the top! The final accent was a cute little tag from the Apothecary Art set that I colored with my markers ... not the whole thing, mind you ... I discovered that coloring the inside portion, punching it out with my 1" punch, and popping it up on the rest of the tag worked just fine! I used my Framelets to cut out the tag. Cute (and it's filled with Hershey's Kisses!!)!

My long cello bag is also so cute! I tried several different fillers ... finally settling on the Peanut M&M's. If there's an allergy, I think the pretzel M&M's would also work. All I know is that the chocolate eggs were too big!

Last but not least is my little matchbook favor treat. I found this idea on YouTube -- Michelle Last did a great tutorial on the matchbook as well as the "makin's" of the little chick. I think I need to watch it one more time because my little chick looks like he's (BIG TIME!) on the run!!
I had the Daffodil Delight 3/8" taffeta ribbon, but missed that there was also a So Saffron taffeta ribbon! The more yellow, the better I say!!

Let's give you a few more closer-up photos, shall we?!:

There's a better photo of the cards -- I used small pieces of the Everyday Enchantment SAB DSP pack, matted them on complimentary colors, and adhered them to still another complimentary base card. The ribbon is an old favorite of mine -- I just love the Pleated Satin ribbon in ALL of the colors. It was hard to decide which to use this time!

I think you can see the cello bag topper better in this photo above. I'm giving my classmembers choice of color for the bunny to compliment their M&M's.

Look at that! Darla Duck is looking for the spotlight again! She's so darn proud of her fancy long eyelashes! Don't you just love the blush on her cheeks?! Ready for a night on the town! Does she look like she's headed for an overnight shift at the hospital tonight??!! No ... just me ... I hardly remember to put any makeup on at all for my overnight shifts!!

Well then ... if you're in the north of Boston area on Monday evening around 7 pm, please come to my class! It's going to be a fun time!! Until next time ...
