Welcome to Day 4 of our hop!
I am excited because today, I get to share my easy tutorial... Decorated egg and silver wear wrappers. So let's jump right in.

Egg and Silverware Wrappers 
by Sandy Hentzel

Items you need:
MFPStamps
Momento Tuxedo Black ink
paper trimmer
scissors
adhesive
color pencils or medium of your choice
ribbon


EGG WRAPPERS

First, stamp you image on card stock that is at lease 8 inches long (you can always trim down later). Second, measure up one inch from the bottom of your paper and draw a mark line.

Draw a line across each side to the end of the paper and then trim to the stamp image. After you do that, fussy cut the top of  your image. It should look like the picture below.

Now you want to use your adhesive to both ends of your wrapper strip

 and the attach to the opposite side.

 Using your pencils or markers, color your image.


EGG WRAPPER #2
This is another option using your die cuts.

First, stamp your image on the white card stock, then choosing a metal die, tape it down using washi tape over the image.
Second, measure up one inch from the bottom of the paper just like below and how you did the first wrapper.

Next you are going to run your image 3/4 of the way through your die machine, you want to go right to your pencil lines.
 ( I had to fold my paper on the ends some because it was a little too long to go
through the machine, not a biggie.)

After you die cut the top of the image, you will run it through your paper trimmer, cutting from the edge of the paper to your die cut, just like below.

The fun part... COLOR!!!

Now another option to adhesive is to use washi tape

You can place a piece of tape along the whole back of the wrapper

Here is the final wrapper

SILVERWEAR WRAPPER

To make a wrapper for you utensils, You will stamp your image, color and fussy cut it.

Using a small paper punch, punch two holes on either side to thread the ribbon through. You can also use an exacto knife and cut two slits on wither side.

Make sure your ribbon is behind your image.

Wrap around your silver wear and tie a bow in the back.  Any smaller image will work with this kind of wrapper.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial



I do adore this stamp! It is a mini called Easter Scene and Spring Things,  you can find these in the store.

Welcome to Day 3 of our hop!
Some for my something new to me theme, I got to thinking. Spectrum Nior has new Shimmer Pens and yes they look cool but do I really need something new to buy? Well, maybe?!?! lol

But I got to thinking, what about my Wink of Stella pens. Its the same concept, I wonder if I can water color with them, hmmmm? So I played and boy did I have some crafty fun!
Check out what I came up with!

Can you say... SPARKLE, SHIMMER!!!!
It totally worked! I used Wink if Stella Gl. Violet.
Stay tune for a video on this technique!

Welcome to Day 2 of our hop!
So for the "Doing Something New theme" this week for me, I wanted to try my hand at one of those tote bags that we have been seeing since last summer. I just never got the chance to. I decided to do a mini tote and here is the tutorial inspiration with measurements and such...

Welcome to Day 1 of our hop!

So you know how I like to do "themes" during the hop each day while following the hop theme. One month it is fancy fold cards, another is doodling, etc.  For this month, I wanted to play around with techniques I haven't tried before.

Today is masking. Believe it or not, I have never done this and I had this masking paper in my stash for out 3 years now. Boy, was I missing out, lol.

First, I stamp on the masking paper and on my card front.

Second, I peeled off the back layer of the masking paper and stuck it over top of the bunny on the card front. Then I stamped the larger bunny on top.

Next, I peeled off the masking paper and started coloring. I decided to make it a one layer card to show off this technique.

Another thing I like to so is mix and match my sentiments. As you can see here, I replaced Basket with Easter.  I am notorious for cutting my stamps. You get more bang for the buck this way and it doesn't ruin the stamp integrity.

Here is my finished card

Here is past card that I pulled from my gallery. I just loved this card and wanted to share it again!!!
I watercolor the stamp image in this one.

Enjoy the Hop. Come back each day. We hope to inspire you to start your own Heart and Bunny projects.  Get to work on the tutorials, show us what you made by March 11th and check back on March 12, 2016 to see if you are a winner.

Supplies Used:
My Favorite Things: Circle Burst Stencil
Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Bo Bunny : Altitude 6x6
Sorry but I do not remember the stamp set the penguins came from
Paper Smooches: make a wish stamp came from a set with this company

Flip-It Card Fun

1
Hello Crafty Friends!  Brenda here with a super easy card.  For this one I used the Sizzix Triple Circle Flip-It die.  To see the die and tutorial head on over here to Stamps of Life and watch Stephanie Barnard show you how it is done.  I promise you I do not work for her.....I just happen to love her dies!! LOL!  Here is my "flip-it" card:


Card closed
Card open
I love how easy this card was to create!  This die set took all of the measuring and guess work out of the process of creating.  SO fun and relaxing to make! I really like the fact that the patterned paper works on this card.  I find myself drawn to buying patterned paper and then I never quite know what to do with it. Anyone else do the same?

I hope that you enjoyed today's card. If you have a questions or suggestions, please leave it in the comments.
