IRS Week (I’d Rather Stamp) – Chocolate Bunny Cupcake Topper

It's IRS Week at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com
Hello my stamping peeps!  It’s Thursday!  

I wish I could say I’m making great progress on the taxes, but it was a bumpy day yesterday.  Had to switch my plans to pick up Ginny from school as there was a threat of hail and damaging winds.  They said the treat of tornadoes was very low so I wasn’t all that worried.  That was about to change.  Some of you may not know but I live in the Moore, Oklahoma area.  You may remember the tornado that wiped out a chunk of my town a couple years ago, hitting 2 schools killing 11 children.  We take severe weather very serious around here.

By early evening, we were preparing for the rain and hail to hit when out of nowhere, the tornado sirens went off.  I knew the threat was minimal and the news never said that we were in a tornado warning.  I went outside to look around and I ‘heard’ that sound.  Far away in the distance I heard that rumble — that freight train sound.  I ran back inside and stayed glued to the TV trying to see which direction it was coming.  We had about 6 tornadoes touch down, one within a ¼ mile of my sister’s house causing damage to everything in her backyard but luckily the house was fine.  Other business nearby weren’t so lucky.  It really is unbelievable that it’s the first week of spring and we’re already dealing with this kind of crazy weather.  Another school was severely damaged but praise God school was not in session at the time so no one was injured.  

We are all fine at our house, just a little shook up as we prepare ourselves for the reality of the damage the tornadoes left behind.  School has been canceled today due to all the damage around town and lots of power outages.  

I am SO ready to get back to stamping!  It’s such great therapy.  I may have picked the wrong week to do taxes but I am going to do my best to get going on them tomorrow.

Well, sometimes the best way to deal with stuff like this is a good distraction so I have one last final IRS (I’d Rather Stamp) video for you.  I made this one several years ago and they are still my most favorite project ever!  Check out this fabulous Chocolate Bunny cupcake topper.  Is this just SUPER CUTE or what?

I found the Teeny Tiny Wishes to be the perfect sentiment for this project but if you don’t have that one, check out the “Happy Easter” in the Crazy About You stamp set or “Hippity-Hoppity” in the And Many More stamp set.  

Here are the other supplies I used in my project today.  Be sure to use the March Hostess Code TWBJEJDR on your order of $20 or more to receive the ‘Let’s Get Creative’ video & tutorial for this month!

And that wraps up IRS Week!  I hope you guys enjoyed the Easter videos this week and THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART for giving me this week to work on taxes.  You guys are the BEST!!!  As I said, I didn’t get as much done as I would have liked but I will try to do what I can in the evenings so that I can keep bringing stamping videos and inspiration to you every day.

Tomorrow I will be back with my Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge!  Before I started on the taxes, I created some inspiration for this weekend’s challenge.  

See you then!  Have an awesome Thursday!

It’s IRS Week – I’d Rather STAMP – One Sheet Wonder Easter Basket

It's IRS Week at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com Ugh.  Taxes.  Anyone else out there HATE this time of year?  I put off working taxes as long as I possibly can but guys, I can’t put it off any longer.  Mr. Awesome and I are going out of town this weekend for my birthday (Yay!  Another cabin in the woods!), next weekend is Easter, and the next weekend is…well, the deadline so guess what I get to do this week?

This means that the stamp room must be converted into Tax Central for the week.  Whaaaa!  I’m so sad BUT I have got all my stampin’ peeps covered.  I am going to be sharing some of my favorite Easter projects from the past this week.  I’m calling it IRS Week for I’d Rather STAMP!

This was one of my most popular projects.  This is the ‘updated’ version that I created last year.  Is she sweet or what?  And are you ready for the BEST part about today’s basket?  It uses just ONE SHEET of Whisper White cardstock.  In the video, I will show you how to cut your cardstock so you can make the whole thing from just one sheet.  Love that!

Lovely Amazing You - Order yours at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com

Happy Wednesday guys!  I had some time to play in my stamp studio yesterday with a new stamp set that I got a couple weeks ago, Lovely Amazing You.  I must have set it off to the side after I got it and it got buried under some papers.  It’s a good thing I saved it because it’s just TOO fabulous to be stuck under a pile of stuff.

Let me share with you what I created with it.  Oh, and I have a surprise regarding all my samples at the end of the post so keep reading!

First, I made a sweet little Easter basket.  Made with just half a sheet of cardstock too!  I love a project that requires very little cardstock but packs a lot of WOW.
Lovely Amazing You Easter box by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - March 11, 2015 Lovely Amazing You Easter box by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - March 11, 2015Next I created a couple of simple cards.  I love the soft colors of this first one —  Sahara Sand, Soft Sky and Very Vanilla.
Lovely Amazing You Card by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - March 11, 2015Lovely Amazing You Card by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - March 11, 2015I did a fun masking technique to create this bright and cheery card!  I needed those bright colors today too.  They just made me happy!
Lovely Amazing You Card by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - March 11, 2015 Lovely Amazing You Card by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - March 11, 2015So, did you notice anything similar about all my projects?  They are actually ALL FLASH CARDS!  Even that Easter Box is made with a Flash Card.  How about that?  You guys have been asking for more Flash Card projects and so I wanted to challenge myself to create all my projects with the Flash Card pieces.

I will work on videos for these projects so stay tuned to Simply Simple Stamping!  I will have one of them for you tomorrow.  🙂  Come back to see which one.

Happy day to each of you!
