Easter Snacks

I made some cute little Easter snacks for the teachers at my work and for my son and daughters daycare.  I got the bags from clear envelopes.  I stamped the image in black from Close to my Heart.  It's funny how everybody ask how I ever have time to make cards and I have to tell you it gets very tricky sometimes.  With this project my son thought he had to help.  I let him tape the different pieces together and my husband cut them.

A Little Pickup!

Thought I'd post a card while both of my kids are sleeping.  That doesn't happen very often.  With this card I am using stamps from Stampin Up!  My sister sells the stamps and so I buy them.  I have to say I have found a lot of cute sets and funny ones!  With this card I used paper by Jen Allyson called Stella and Rose.  I really liked the paper, because it was a thicker paper.  I used a Kraft paper as my base.  I colored the truck with copic markers and I stamped the truck in Black by Close to my Heart and the brown is Coca from Close to my Heart.  The ribbon is a trick I learned from our recent card workshop.  I thought it was kind of neat to wrap it around the saying instead of around the card.

Pinwheel Grateful Card

I made this card using the stamp set from Miracle Workshop on the Go.  I used the square stamps in the stamp set to make a basis for my pinwheels.  I tried doing it without the stamp as a guidance and it seemed to work pretty well.  The pinwheels at first were a little tricky until I got the hang of it.  I also stamped inside of the card to add an extra detail.

Inside of the card

All materials are from Close to my Heart.  Paper is from the Wings level 2 collection, coca and colonial white.  Buttons are also from close to my heart!
