For my layout, I used some NEW supplies from Stampin' Up! I just LOVE this NEW paper called Parisian Breeze Specialty!! I kept my layout pretty simple, did a little paper piercing and added some of this gorgeous NEW ribbon!! Mama bunny was stamped and colored in using my Copics. I slit the arm on the rabbit and added the baby bunny.

Here is my sample using the last set of the release called Egg Hunt. This set measures 4 x 6.
For fun, I created a stair step card. We did these a while ago on Splitcoast and I thought this stamp set worked so well on this accordion card. You can find the instruction for the card here. For my layout, I colored all of the images, cut them out and arranged them on the card. I was so upset at my coloring the last two days... I did not have enough Copics that matched my SU paper, so I ran out for a quick moment today to stock up on some colors. YEA!!
For my sample below, I created this adorable room card. You take a piece of 8 1 /2 x 8 1/2 and fold it an half, long way, then again the other way. Cut up to the center and fold in. Add your wall paper before you glue the room together and have fun decorating!! If you are inspired by my cards today, I would LOVE to see your samples. Please post your sample here so I can see how much fun you had making one of these layouts!!
Before I go, I wanted to tell you that I have passed 200,000 hits!! YEA!! Check back soon, I will have some fun blog candy to giveaway!! Happy Stamping...

My layout is from the Stamps and Smiles Sketch Challenge "SASSC2". Mercy Kerin is my sketch designer and she has created 4 awesome sketches for the release week. Want to win this set... stop over to the Stamps and Smiles blog for all of the details!!
Here is a fun project I created. I took a piece of 12 x 12 paper and scored it on all four sides at 4.25. I cut the the inner panels and folded it. The carrot is sitting in smaller piece of paper that was cut and stuck inside the box. To fit the carrot, I used a circle Nestie. To finish the box, I added paper grass around the carrot.
Enjoy your week,

For my design, I used a medium Stampin' Up! Envelope and punched out one of the ends using my scalloped edge punch from Stampin' Up. A piece of pink pirouette cardstock was placed inside the envelope and the corners were rounded using the corner rounder punch. The kraft cardstock was crimped and wrapped around the envelope. Since I LOVE polka dots, I used some of my NEW ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon and wrapped that around the kraft cardstock. For some added fun on the front of the card, I punched out two hearts using my heart Nestabilities and stamped on the sentiment from the Sweet Valentine set by Verve.
Enjoy your weekend!! Please stop by tomorrow, I will be posting my OCC card along with a fun giveaway.
