On Tuesday I attended a Stamp Club run by Cheryl LeFore of La Quinta, California. Cheryl as you may recall from my earlier posts, won Stampin' Ups! 2011 Artisan Award.
Cheryl attended SU Leadership in San Antonio Texas earlier this year and showed us all the free stamps and products she acquired while there. There were so many gorgeous goodies on display! She also showed us several of the swap cards she received.
I absolutely loved all the floral cards she had on display and will be CASING some of them for my spring card classes.
Another highlight of the evening were the two make and take Easter projects Cheryl demonstrated. The first project is a cheerful little Easter Bunny perched on a carrot candy box. He's made from punched ovals, circles and the ornament punch.
This simple project is made with a variety of Stampin' Up! punches. The little 5 sided box that looks like a carrot, will hold Hershey's kisses. What a sweet treat!
Here's a closeup so you can see some of the detail on the punches. Ovals, small heart, circles and the ornament punch make up the body of this cute little bunny. Whiskers and paw details are added with a black marker.
This view lets you see the details in the box. The box bottom and top are made with the Fancy Flower punch and the box itself is a piece of cardstock that's been embossed with the Swiss Dot embossing folder and scored. Pretty easy.
The second project was an Easter card made with the new Elegant Bird Bigz Die Cut and the Easter Dove stamp.
