Here are the images of the Newton’s Easter Basket stamp set and dies, with the Cloudy Sky stencil:

I started out by die-cutting a Bristol smooth white card stock using the Scallop Rectangle die from the Frames and Flags die set.  I used the new Cloudy Sky stencil and my broken china distress oxide ink with my mini-ink blending tool to create my cloudy sky.

I stamped the images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut the colored images with its coordinating dies.  To finish my design, I die-cut a mint card stock using the land border dies, and added the small trees.  Here’s my card:


Since I colored more than one image, I thought it’s perfect to use it to decorate my treat bag.  I added the white fence first, and adhered the grass that I die-cut using the land border die.  I stamped the sentiment onto the treat bag, then adhered my image with my foam tape.  Here’s the treat bag:

Brentwood Spring Chicken Stamp Set

Todays marks the day that we launch this cute Easter/Spring stamp set from www.jessicalynnoriginal.com called Brentwood Spring chicken. While there are no specific deals with this stamp set, Jessica is offering a “free shipping” code today for members of JLO’s Facebook group called JLOcraftcreateshare. She is always giving away stamp sets and announcing deals and specials so I encourage you all to join this Facebook group. Here is the link (https://www.facebook.com/groups/JLOcraftcreateshare/)

I am the second person on this hop and if you came from Jessica’s Blog, you’re in the right place. The next person after me, is Jeanette (http://www.creativeplayischeaperthantherapy.blogspot.com). Please give her some love by checking the beautiful cards that she created for this event. We love to hear from you, and we love to know your opinion.

I love spring! I love spring colors and so the first card that you see here is one of my favorite. I have made a similar card to this a year ago and posted the video tutorial on my YouTube channel. I love making interactive cards and the colors I used on this blended so well. To go with this card, I created the small treat bag to house some Easter treats! What do you think?


If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I like to stretch my stamps and dies and one example is the card below. I used the image to create a Father’s Day card.


I hope you like what I created and have an amazing weekend!
