I made this little number using the Everybunny stamp set some watercolouring, lots of Summer Starfruit, and a dash of Primrose Petals.

Hop to it....

 
Hi there!
 
Nothing like the week before Easter to start posting projects...there'll be more to come too...some Traditional and others 'bunnified'.
 
 
I've used the 'Everybunny' stamp set (p25 of the Annual Catalogue),
teamed with Watercolour paper,
Watercolour pencils
& an Aqua painter
to get these coloured images.
 
Did you know Stampin' Up! sell the long cello treat tubes?
 
Find all the Cellophane Bags on p161 of the Annual Catalogue.
 
 
 
 
And this little bunny box was made from a 'no-sticking' triangle box template from Stampin' Up! (years back) and punches...email me if you'd like the template.
 
Til next time,
 
Thanks for stopping in,
Anna :)

Wish Big!!

 
Hi all!
 
Popping in to show you the swaps I made for this month's team meeting.
 
The theme: Monochromatic
 
Huh?
 
Means you use one colour
(or colour family e.g. shades of blue)
plus one neutral colour
to create your projects.
 
 
 
 
I wanted to use up some of
the free ribbon & buttons
I had from Sale-a-bration .
 
By the way, there's still
9 days left of Sale-a-bration.
 
 
I'll be back to post more 'Monochromatic' creations from the other team girls...keep posted!
 
Anna :)

Mixed Tea cards

 
These two cards are made with
scraps of the Tea for Two paper
(who would've thought this paper pack would be great for male cards?!).
 
 
I had a couple of pre-stamped & cut ovals from my last class and put these two together,
as well as assembling the few cards following,
using the same layout as one of my cards for
the 'Oh Hello' Class.
 
 
 
 
 
If you want any of the card 'recipes' just let me know :)
 
Tell me if you've popped in!
 
Thanks for looking...
