Hoppy Easter card for last Friday Mashup

I was so sad to hear that The Friday Mashup! challenge blog was ending! I don't always have time to play in challenges (I follow a lot of challenge blogs) but I love to stalk the blogs for inspiration! Friday Mashup is no exception!

Here is my card based on the Easter theme for the Mashup:

I went for something inspired by Pinterest - a mason jar filled with a chocolate bunny. The mason jar is cut out from the front panel and that panel is popped up on foam tape - it's like a shaker box w/o the shake!

Thanks for visiting! Goodbye Friday Mashup - I'll miss you!

Ingredients: Paper Smooches Crystal Clear, Magical Spring; Reverse Confetti Carton Cuties; Papertrey Ink Circle Scribbles

St. Patty's Day card

St. Patrick's Day is almost upon us and I've put together a fun card with my favorite leprechaun stamp.  I am submitting my card to this week's Simon Say Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog: A Bit O'Green.

My leprechaun is colored with Prismacolor pencils and used my Hero Arts orange ombre ink pad for the sentiment block.

Sponged Stamping Card

I loved the technique shown in this week's Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday Challenge #242: Sponged Stamping.

I am also submitting my card to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog: Make Your Own Background.
