Hello all.. Jackie here for today’s blog post. I am so pleased that spring is finally here and we are starting to see some sunshine which has inspired me to create this sunny looking card for you today. I have used the wooden trailer – 1909 Hay Ride – to create this lemonade cart plus there are also a few bits of hand drawn fussy cutting to do. So lets get started.
Start by die cutting all the pieces for the cart, the photo below shows all the pieces I have used. Where you can see more than one of the same piece I have doubled up and glued together to add some texture to the finished cart. You will need to die cut the same pieces to create the roof and the bottom, then use this same die to cut the three coloured panels into different coloured cardstock.
Continue to build the cart up. You will need to cut two thin side bars measuring approximately 1/8th x 2.75″ which will be glued either side from the base to the roof. The bunting, lemons, soda cups and signs are all fussy cut apart from the straws and sign stick (these are the waste pieces from the cart base die)
Ink a pale blue circle in the centre of a 5×5″ white card panel, I used distress oxide tumbled glass and a domed blending tool. Offer the cart up to the inked circle to see where the wheels will sit, then draw a few black lines with squiggles to ground the cart, fix the prepared panel to the front of a top folding turquoise card blank measuring 5.25 x 5.25″ but do not fix the cart in place yet.
Next die cut the bunny, you will not need the legs as you will not see them. build up the bunny as normal and add rosy cheeks using pale pink ink, I used distress ink spun sugar and a finger dauber. Draw on some whiskers and add a tiny white dot to each eye then fix the bunny in place before attaching the finished cart to the card front.
I have chosen not to add a sentiment but you could add whatever sentiment you like, this would suit quite a few different occasions. You could also switch up the design and make a number of different cart’s like sweets, hotdogs and burgers or even fresh fruit and veg.
Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you have found some inspiration from this design.
Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. With Easter coming up quickly I managed to squeeze in one last Easter card. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish to 7” x 6”, score at 3 1/2” and fold in half for a horizontal top fold card. (Mini Slimline)
Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish to 3 1/2” x 6”. Apply Inks of your choice onto a Gel Plate. I used Distress Oxide in Broken China and Cracked Pistachio. Broken China on top and Cracked on the bottom. Place the Cardstock on top of the Inked Gel Plate. Remove the Cardstock and spray some water to create some faux clouds. Diecut Adventure Edges (cloud die) on scrap cardstock to use as a stencil. Apply Unicorn White Ink on top of the panel to create clouds.
Step 3 – Diecut Pull Tab (half circle die) to the panel created in Step 2. This will create the slit to be able to pull the tab. Diecut Pull Tab (thin rectangular die) to the panel created in Step 2, making sure to align with the panel diecut. Diecut Pull Tab (T shape die) & (rectangle with slight angles at edge die) using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Diecut Pull Tab (circle with arrow). Adhere to the top of the pull tab. When assembled the panel should look like the below photo. Adhere to the card front making sure to leave space around the pull tab mechanism.
Step 4 – Stamp Spring Sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink to the right side of the card front.
Step 5 – Diecut Easter Basket (eggs, flowers and leaf stems dies) in various colors of cardstock. Adhere to card front using Kids Choice Glue.
Step 6 – Diecut Bunny various colors of Cardstock. Assemble using Kids Choice Blue. Make sure to adhere an egg to the arms of the Bunny. Adhere the Bunny to the top of the pull tab flaps.
Step 7 – Diecut Slimlne Adventure Edges using Green Cardstock. Adhere to card front using Foam Tape leaving a gap at the center where the movable egg is.
I love how it looks like the Bunny is taking an egg. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
Karen here. Lately, I’ve been inspired creating cards to use similar colors and pieces to also scrapbook. For today’s post, I started with the adorable Bunny and made a card. Then, I just had to create a Sidekick scrapbook page.
I started by finding a card sketch on Pinterest to create this fun card with the Bunny. The Bunny is colored with Distress Inks in Tea Dye and Kitsch Flamingo. The bow is colored with Scattered Straw. The eyes and whiskers are colored with Copic C7, and the pink nose is a Copic R81. The triangles were made by using a Fitted Square die and cutting it in half and I added a couple Stitched Rounded Rectangles to the front. I added a couple Leaves and Branches die cuts at the top. With some ribbon, twine and pearls, I called this all occasion (but I’ll probably use it for Easter) card complete.
I then brought in the paper and the triangles to create this Sidekick page journaling fun times at Sacramento Rivercats games with my guy. The page base is cut from 90lb White Soft Finish Cardstock with a Sidekick Essentials 2 die. He has a cap on that is from the Hats dies. The letters are in the Planner Essentials 23 set, and I added the “cute” stamp from the Moods set (because I think my guy is awfully cute!) No page, in my opinion, is complete without reinforcements, cut here using 101mm Double Sided Adhesive and the Reinforcement Variety Packs 1 and 2.
On the back, the focus is on these pictures that include my parents and my guys daughter since we really enjoy going to the game with family and friends. I used the triangle (again cut from a Fitted Square) as a pocket and added journaling that I cut with a Fitted Rounded Square die. The …’s are also from the Moods stamps, and I added some Branches and Leaves diecuts to the triangle pocket.
Hello everyone, Alice here again! Today I would like to show you another creation. It’s been sunny here all week so I felt like getting started with colors. I just love to work with a lot of color! This time I chose the cute bunny along with the easter eggs.
Behind the bunny is a shaking area. I used very nice shaking material for this. This contains small bunny’s. I love shaker material. Have a hole box full of it. I absolutly love it when it matches the animals. This shaker material is from Picket Fence. They combine perfectly with the characters.
I put the shaking material in a transparant bag. Close this well with clear double sided adhesive tape.
To nicely hide the shaking part I used the frame the floral burst background die (1801). You punch this out twice. You use part of it as a background. The second part is made into a frame. You cute out the middle part at 0.5 cm from the edges. In between you can confirme your shaking part.
On top of this you make the floral burst background part. This way you have processed your shaking part very neatly. For this creation I die cut the background die out of yellow cardstock.
After this I started working with the bunny and the decoration. This time I made everything out of colored cardstock. I did edit the edges with ink. Normaly I color everything with ink. Bute today I wanted to use the brighter colors of cardstock. This bunny is wearing his beautiful bow again today. I made these from the same paper as the background of the whole.
The bunny is sitting comfortably in the grass. Here also some nice easter eggs and of course tasty carrots for him.
Above the bunny a colorful bow of hemp cord. These in the same color as the shaking material and the easter eggs.
Behind this part another cheerful checkered design paper. Again in the same colors. Finally made this entirely on silk finish cardstock.
This was my creation this time. I hope it makes you happy as I do.
It won’t be long before the tulips are blooming and the Easter Bunny will be hiding eggs! Good Morning, this is Selma Stevenson. It is time to start working on Easter cards since Easter is just one month away (April 1). Today I incorporated tulips along with a cute bunny to create this card.

Valentine’s Day is in the past, but this card created by Samantha Klaebe is definitely worth a second look. Look at the clever way Samantha used the scallop edge die from the Valentines Edges die set and the heart shape from the Puzzle Heart die set. This idea can be used with many different shapes in place of the heart. Samantha also used the Love Sentiments.

Luciana here with another little tutorial ^-^
This time I have prepared a cute paperclip that you can use for several purposes: your planner, books, but also as an embellishment for a card, a parcel or a gift. Very useful, isn’t it ?
I used the sweet Bunny and the Spring Basket dies designed by Joset van de Burgt. You will also need White Soft Finish Cardstock and some colored ink pads.
Hello Everyone, it’s Tina here today. Now that Valentine’s Day is over we have Easter to look forward to. Joset’s new release has you covered. When I saw the bunny backside die from the Bunny die set I knew I had to make a card with it. Below you will find the easy steps to replicate this card.
