We're all about the Bunnies!




Good Evening!

If you're here in Ontario, I hope you enjoyed a fabulous Family Day!
We had a HUGE snowfall this weekend, which meant I had the chance to practice with my Cross Country Skis. I managed to make it through with no falls today, so that's a win!!!

Today we're featuring Bunnies. 



I pulled out this older Window Die, to create a fun spring scene with the Vintage Garden Paper
This sweet Bunny on the Window Sill. I totally LOVE these new Bunny Sets!

The Sentiment can also be found in the Easter Bunnies Set


Be sure to visit the following blogs to see more Little Bun Buns!!

Funny Bunnies- Impression Obsession February Release Hop, Day 2










February 15th - 17th The Impression Obsession Team will be sharing projects with NEW February products! You can find a list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog each day through the event.
Prizes - Two lucky customers who place an Impression Obsession order during the February release week (February 15th – 22nd) will be chosen and will have a very special Impression
 Obsession prize package added to their orders!





For this card, I started with the Some Bunny Loves you set
I cut the light purple background from the Vintage Garden Paper using the Rounded Corner Stitched Squares, which also included the little tag. You will notice, I also used it on the card below. I capped it off with a tiny flower, which is included in the Stitched Flower set.


I also used a tiny flower accent on this card as well! The image for this card, comes from the Easter Bunnies Set, which also comes with matching dies
I cu the larger background out of the Rounded Corner Stitched Squares  using the soft and pretty Vintage Garden Paper 
It's such a soft and pretty paper pack!!!

I'm loving this Bunny Series! Wouldn't it be cool to see more of these in the future??

Here's today's links for the hop:
 


Happy Hopping!!

Bring on Spring-IO Stamps February Release Hop








February 15th - 17th The Impression Obsession Team will be sharing projects with NEW February products! You can find a list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog each day through the event.

Prizes - Two lucky customers who place an Impression Obsession order during the February release week (February 15th – 22nd) will be chosen and will have a very special Impression Obsession prize package added to their orders!

For my First Card, I wanted to share this soft and pretty card I created using solely die cuts. It almost looks like an embossing folder, but it's actually dies I used from the new Layered Posies Set. I simply cut them all in Yellow and glued them onto the same colour background. It really does look elegant in real life. I added the Birthday Wishes Sentiment and Voila! done!.



Next, I used the bunny from this super sweet new set called Alphabet Sayings Easter.
I stamped the sweet bunny and flower onto the Rounded Rectangle 2 die and used the new Cobblestone Stencil to create a ground look. I then used the Inside out Arch Die, which looks like half an easter egg, to ground the rectangle tile. I grounded the sentiment on top of the little tag from the  Rounded Corner Stitched Square die.  The designer paper is from the Vintage Garden Paper Pack! So Pretty!

You can find all of the new products HERE
Because at the time of this post, all of the links weren't available and I have three hectic days at the Flower Shop, I won't have the specific links in this post

Beautiful Backgrounds & Birthday Wishes








I really ought to pull out my background stamps more often.
They can add so much texture to a card, particularly when you don't have a patterned paper suitable for your theme. I used this super sweet textured heart CAC background 
I inked up and roughed up the large Heart from the Primitive Heart Die set.

A little Ribbon and a Happy Birthday Die Sentiment and I have a Valentine themed BIrthday Card in a Jiffy!!!!

Here's a list od who's playing at the time I loaded my card, but you will likely get a full list on the IO Blog



Do you. make Holiday Themed BIrthday Cards for those friends celebrating close to Holidays?

Enjoy the Hop!!

Small Pleasures are the sweetest






Hope you've all had a wonderful start to your week!!

Today we're sharing our favourite project from this month's release

I absolutely LOVE the Pooh Stamps this month. I paired this set with the Monsters Birthday set to create this Clean and Simple Card. I used the Circles Dies to create a little shadow to ground Winnie on.





What small pleasures bring you happiness?

For me, a walk in the woods, the scent of fresh lilac and a cup of tea on a chilly Winter's day are some simple things that evoke emotions as sweet as a freshly picked strawberry.

The smell of Autumn; the crispness of the fresh air and being able to wear boots and a sweater.

The relaxing sensation of gliding along the water in my kayak, taking in all the sights and sounds of nature, followed by a refreshing dip in the clear water of a spring fed lake.

With all of  today's technology, exposure to social media and the every day hectic routine's we have adopted over the years, it's important to remind ourselves to STOP.

Take time this week to relish in those small pleasures, which make your Heart Happy.
