I sent this card to my DSS in April, so it will be June before this is posted, but I thought the other post was getting a bit long!!
I made this on a day in April when we had a winter storm warning.. and I wanted Spring AGAIN!! so.. bright, cheery in order -- pink passion, green galore,so saffron, and very vanilla. I found this punch at the discount store for $4.99 for the hummingbird and couldn't pass it up! Each color is sprayed with a coordinating Glimmer Mist so they have a nice sheen. I used Viva Decor pens on the flowers for the embossed touch. No more winter...please!!!
We had a contest at work to make an egg themed poster. I volunteered to make my team's. This is what I came up with. I used several different carts for this mostly the Easter 2010. The clouds I painted on with a paint dabber using a Spellbinders negative cut as my stencil. MS butterfly punch & SU bird punch also.
Each egg is embossed and labeled with one of our team members names. The rabbit is from Winter Woodland. The basket I think is Doodlecharms.
The poster is 22x28 but doesn't really look it in the picture I guess.

I didn't stamp on the inside of these cards yet I left them blank so I can either add a Father's Day or a Birthday sentiment on the inside. The colors are either Handsome Hunter of Forest Foliage (not sure which it was unlabeled in my stash, Crumb Cake, and White. Hunter ribbon and hemp twine, edges are all distressed. TH embossing folder I thought kind of looked like golf balls!! Stamps from Fore also And Many Mower.
edited to add: ok.. I didnt have this picture sized right originally I deleted and redid it but it still is too big. I will try to fix it later.
I cased this card from SCS also: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1943250?cat=fav. I used the tulips frame embossing folder,Bliss stamp set from SA, cameo coral and white card stock. Butterflies from the SU butterfly bigz die.
I cased the skateboard one from a gal on SCS. Here is a link to her original post: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1935292?cat=fav. This is the Rockabilly retired DSP, Kiwi Kiss, Black, and White paper. Basic Black ink, Kiwi Kiss ribbon..some of the ribbon have white brads, some black (I ran out of black). I made LOTS of these! 7 year old DS thought these were so cool he wanted to help, so he did some of the paper piercing for me under close supervision (thank goodness for paper piercing templates!) :)
I saw these flowers on a card someone had on ebay. Sorry.. I can't link to ebay. The colors are Crushed Curry, Black, White, and Garden Green. I used the SU Scalloped punch, 5/8" circle (cut in half), and the leaf stem die. The grass is MS fringe scissor. I also sprayed the white background with a blue glimmer mist and inked the edges blue. I also inked the flower edges in Soft Suede, flowers embossed with dots folder.
