Hello friends, family and followers it's time for a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash
and the theme it Happy Passover, Happy Easter or Happy Spring. I chose to showcase a couple of Easter cards I made for my great grandsons although with the social distancing I think I am now putting them in the mail, they will be a little late but at least they will get to see them before summer. I have time to craft and really haven't been doing much at all, I have great ideas, perhaps I get overloaded with ideas and then don't do any, time to remedy that one. I always try to make a different fold, different technique or something moving and I'm running out of ideas especially since there are two. Here is what I came up with for this year.
Something I have not made in eons, a Waterfall card, of course I went looking for tutorials and there are many some very hard to follow but I used Dawn's Stamping Studio
tutorial, it's the one I have always used. I made just a card front and a trivet to go with it. Talk about using stash, nothing on this card is less than 5 years old with the exception of the bunny dies which are probably a year or more but never been die cut before. The brads and ribbon are about 10 years.
Since I don't have three or four hands (would be nice some days) I couldn't hold the card operate the waterfall and take a video at the same time, so this will give you and idea of how it worked.
Next is a "Spring" card I made for the younger great grandson.
There were a few tutorials some were 5 1/4" square but because the bunny wasn't that big I made it
4 1/4 inch square. It is called a spring card as it "springs" up when taken out of the envelope. These are really great cards for a graduate card.
The bunny is a great frustration builder, all those many parts but it was fun.
Another great stash buster, I think I've had the bunny die for 3 years and it was the first time I have played with it, the rest of the card was made out of scraps. My scrap file box is getting too full I need to make more use of the scraps that are in there,
I'm entering this in:
