Easter Bunny Girl

Welcome all to the Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky

In case you didn’t know, each stamp set benefits charity. At least $1 per stamp set goes to help the charity noted on the stamp set package. Currently Kristal supports the following charities: Cancer Angels, Storefront Shelter for Homeless Children, Intrepid & Fallen Heroes, E. Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, Doorways Shelter for Women & Children (Domestic Violence), Wayside House for Women, Camp Good Days & Special Times, Adopt a Classroom, and Autism Research Institute. In addition, Kristal personally donates $1 from each set sold and over time believes this will add up to some wonderful miracles for these special people. You can feel good knowing that each time you purchase a K Andrew Designs Art stamp set, someone around the country is receiving some good help!

What a Surprise

So over at Hiding in my Craft room this week our challenge is.
 Using your most hideous paper!!

 So off to my old papers that I never uses because they are Hideous, mostly from paper packs. So I chose 2 that some what went together and because my daughter said she did not even want them!! LOL

I consider these VERY hideous as I don't use these colours very much and the squares on the yellow paper do nothing for me....BUT you will never guess what happened when I cut, and layered them, I started to really like them together.

I used Cricut cartridge Elegant Edges for the scalloped background,  the black layer was the oblong  scallop cut 1/4 inch bigger as this has no shadow.

Then for the image. This is a C.C. Designs digi stamp Puppy Kiki La Rue available at All That Scraps.

I coloured the image using water coloured pencils and a blending pen.

Then the Sentiment was stamped using the fabulous K Andrew Designs stamp sets Splash-tastic and All About Animals

The Purple background was found in the scrap box and then embossed using indentz swirls embossing folder

The Sentiment circle was cut using a fiskars cirle punch and then the fiskars scalloped punch, I then added a scrap piece of ribbon and a large brad to hold it together. I then used liquid pearls to finish the scalloped off!!
