Make It Monday – Somebunny Sweet Easter Card

MAKE IT MONDAY - FREE tutorial at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com

I just love sharing tutorials with you on Monday.  It’s a great way to start the week with a card that is ready to create, the measurements are laid out for you.  Easy easy.  I also love that I have a few demonstrator friends who love to share their creations with me…. and I share with them.  It just makes stamping more fun when we share.

My friend Tami created this card and I wanted to share it with you because it was just too cute not to share.  I absolutely love it, don’t you?  That bunny is just so adorable!

This will be a perfect card to send for Easter.  I hope you will give this card a try.  To make it easy, I have a tutorial to share for today’s Make It Monday!

I had such a great weekend!

Mr. Awesome and I went to see Christina in her Sooner Theatre debut of “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels the Musical”.  Guys, she was awesome!  She played Jolene from good ol’ Oklahoma.  A fun-loving girl who has LOTS of money thanks to her ex-husbands.  “I should probably warn you the only fly in the syrup might be that my last couple of husbands ain’t exactly been declared ‘legally’ dead yet.”  

She has tricked Lawrence into marrying her and he and Freddie have to get a little sneaky in order to get rid of her.  Christina really has a gift for great facial expressions on stage and I really loved watching her perform and sing.  That girl has some PIPES!

Had to get a picture after the show.  This is Lucas Ross (who played Freddie), myself and Christina .  I have to brag on Lucas for a minute.  He’s basically our local celebrity.  I watch him all the time on the local morning show, Rise & Shine.  He just makes me laugh and I adore him. Well, getting to know him after the show, I see that he is just as sweet and lovable in person.  He and Christina have had a blast working together and I can see why — they share the same sense of humor.  He was fantastic as the slimy Freddie.

We had a great weekend here at my house.  Last night my family came over to celebrate my birthday.  I have the best family ever.  We had dinner, sat by the fire pit, and got caught up on life.  So relaxing.  I loved it.  No birthday is complete without cake and my mom brought my FAVORITE coconut cake.  I love all things coconut but this cake is my favorite.  I think I was in a sugar coma when I went to bed.  Today is my actual birthday so Mr. Awesome is taking me to dinner so the celebration continues.  I guess this is the benefit of turning 50.  You get to celebrate all month long.

FLASH CARD – Fluttering Butterfly – Video No. 92

Yesterday I shared a card in my 2-Minute Tuesday Tip video that several of you asked about.  I decided to use the technique and turn it into a Flash Card with a different framelit. It turned out so pretty!

This is the Butterflies Thinlit set and the Sheltering Tree stamp.  Could it be any easier?

I used Teeny Tiny Wishes so that I could get really creative with the sentiments.  There are 24 sentiments in that stamp set so the possibilities go on and on!

Let’s get doing with today’s FLASH CARD video….

 

Here are my measurements in case you missed them.

  • Pool Party Cardstock – 11″ x 4 ¼”, scored and folded at 5 ½”
  • So Saffron Flash Card – 2 ¾” x 4 ¼”
  • Whisper White OR Very Vanilla Flash Card – 2 ½” x 4″
  • Crushed Curry Bakers Twine – 8″ to 10″

I had some new members join my team of Stampin’ Up demonstrators and I sent them a card that is similar to this.  When I sat down to create this week’s challenge cards, I realized that I had an idea sitting right in front of me.  Had to change it a bit but I was crazy over the colors and the bright tones of it!

This card is SO pretty in person but didn’t photograph as well as I would have hoped.

Hopefully you can see it better in this picture.  See the nice dry embossing on the vanilla cardstock?  It’s a real WOW for sure!

The flowers were stamped in Versamark and covered in clear embossing powder so they shine — so pretty!

Confession.  I stamped the sentiment at the bottom, stamped it crooked, so I just covered it with the focal image and put the sentiment at the top!  Just call me the problem solver!
