It's So Sad...

I have to help my Mom pack tomorrow, so I am not sure if I will have time to stamp. boohooooooooohoooo. So, in preparation for that, I stamped a lot today to make up for it.hehe
I actually have 4 cards ready to go, but I am only going to share 3 of them. I have a friend who likes to be surprised by her Easter cards, so I am keeping it a secret, everyone else, if you have been keeping up, I can GUARANTEE that you have seen yours!!! I try to keep some a secret, but I love to share what I do, so it is hard for me!! The first two cards were made using the Whipper Snapper set Spring Has Sprung. I stamped the main images on Whisper White with Black Stazon. I colored them in using my SU markers and aquapainter. The images were outlined with my prismacolor cool grey marker to make them stand out a bit. The top card uses Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose for the colors. I used my Martha Stewart edge punch to get the embossed scallop on my Pretty in Pink DSP from the Prints Pack. I seriously don't know what I am going to do, I am about to run out of all my favorite colors from that thing!! I tied a square knot with white taffeta and added some pink gingham to it. The next card is Certainly Celery, Apricot Appeal, Pretty in Pink, and Apricot Appeal DSP from the Prints pack. I used the same colors on the sentiment panel. I drew the dots on with my white gel pen and added some cute button brads.
This last card was made for the My Favorite Things guest designer challenge. The challenge was to make a monochromatic card. I used the Eggstra Special set. I stamped the chick in Black Stazon on Whisper White. I colored it in using my SU markers and blended with my aquapainter. I then outlined the whole thing with my prismacolor marker and covered it with icicle stickles to make it sparkly!! I cut it out, and the scalloped layers with my nestabilities. I used Apricot Appeal, Whisper White and Apricot Appeal DSP from the prints pack. I wanted a lot of layers on this , if you couldn't already tell. I stamped the sentiment and then used my paper piercer and matt pack to frame it. I love the way it looks!!! I put three white brads in the bottom corner and tied an apricot square knot on the side and it was done! Wish me luck!!
