The image is stamped with the Archival Black ink and then I used markers to color in the soup and the bowl. The heart is punched sing the small retired heart punch and adhered with a glue dot over the stamped heart. Another option would be to use a q-tip or tissue to remove the black ink on the heart part of the rubber and then use a red marker to color it and then stamp on the paper.

If you look closely you will see the large star is pierced, the white background card stock is pierced and the rectangle below the circle is pierced around the circle.

I found this Cadbury Egg holder on Mary Fish's blog. She has a great video showing how to make the holder. Then I just looked closely at her photos to CASE her decorating. The bunny is made using the small oval punch and 3/4" circle punch for the body. For the ears I used the small petal from the Blossom Builder Punch. The tail is the little flower from the Itty Bitty Punch pack. I have so much of the retired Chevron ribbon; what fun to use some of it on these cute little treat holders. The expression is from the Delightful Dozen stamp set. I used my Hexagon punch to make the banner. The top of the holder is punched with the Scallop Tag Topper punch. So a lot of punching for this project.

Easter is early this year. Usually I do my cards in March for an April Easter. I realized that I better get busy and started on some cards. These were so easy! I used some retired Designer Series Paper. The design was so big! I could never decide how I wanted to use it. Then I got inspired by a card I saw on Dawn Olchelske's blog. She had another layer over the top of her DSP but I decided just adding the butterfly was enough. I chose the size of the butterflies based on the 4" x 5-1/4" DSP. I cut the solid butterfly from the Bold Butterfly framelits using Lost Lagoon card stock. It matched the paper so well, even though the DSP was sold long before Lost Lagoon was a color option. Then I cut the lacy butterfly using the Butterflies thinlits in black card stock. I used my Precision Base Plate and the Big Shot Die Brush. I have found it I run these delicate thinlits through my Big Shot three times, they punch better.

|As usual there were extra pieces left over, so this is a card I made using stamps in my inventory and extra pieces. I decided to just use the kit cards as an example. I liked them, so why reinvent the wheel!|
|Here's the second card from the kit. What a pretty gold adhesive swirl to add to the card.|
|The third card design. The background is preprinted. So, again the only stamping was the sentiment on the little banner die cuts.|
|And my version of the card using some retired DSP and the little flower stamps from the Paper Pumpkin kit. I used the last leaf die cut from the kit on this card. The flowers were punched using circle punches.|
I have a Brother P-Touch label machine that I use to make the labels. It's a pretty slick little gadget. Think I have some of my dad in me as he would have loved having one and labeling everything in sight.

Snips and cut around the 'y'. Love those sharp little scissors!

This is a set of cards I have made for a Benefit Silent Auction to be held in our area next month. I got the magazine holder idea and instructions from Linda Heller's Stamping School. I love having a subscription to her online school. I look forward to each week's ideas. She always has great tips, too and shares all her insight on the latest products from Stampin' Up!
This holder is so much easier than it looks.
And because I've used Stampin' Up! images on the cards inside I made this little label for the back edge of the box.
I made 6 different Thank You cards and matching envelopes for this box. I'll share the cards the rest of this week.

For the second card the third scrap was just too small to make into a banner. So I had to come up with a different layout. The stamped expression comes from Itty Bitty Banners stamp set and is die cut using the Bitty Banners framelits.
