Shabby Chic Chick....

Welcome back!
This is my final sample for the precious clear stamp set,  Happy Easter From Your Peeps, that are available from The Cutting Cafe Shop.
I really love the quality of these stamps. They stamp so clearly and look great on tags or even in picture frames, and now here on a card!
I hope I've given you plenty of ideas for your holiday stamping.
Biggest of hugs and happy crafting,

Got Eggs?

Hello wonderful peeps!
It's another showcase of fun new stamps from The Cutting Cafe Shop and this time around I'd like to show you a frame I decorated using the stamp set, Happy Easter From Your Peeps.
A little paper piecing for the bunnies, popped the tail out some more, added some grass, hills, clouds and then green mossed a frame.
Big hugs and Happy Stamping!

Valentine Candy in a Bunny Butt...

When it came time to photograph these cards, I realized all I had was Valentine candy, so please excuse the vibrant red jelly beans in this precious bunny's butt! 
It's not hard to imagine scrumptious pastel candies just waiting for eager little fingers when they open these boxes and find a yummy treat card inside!  That's right, the cut file comes WITH boxes too.
Here I've used Bunny Treat Cup Card and...
Here's the ever fabulous Hoppy Easter Treat Cup Card!
There's another style that I haven't included with these and that's the Egg Treat Cup Card.
 And like I mentioned before, because these are such 3D cards, the file comes with a very easy to make box.
If you'd like to make your own candy and card in one, please check these out here at
Thank you so much for your visit.
Big BIG hugs and happy crafting,

What Clint Eastwood Said...

Remember that famous phrase in Dirty Harry? 
"You gotta ask yourself one question. 'Do I feel lucky?' Well? Do you, punk?"
And my answer would be a resounding YES because I have made this fun little lucky leprechaun centerpiece from the files at The Cutting Cafe, that is mounted to an old spindle.
If you'd like to build one too, here's how:
First off you will start with a Top Hat.  
The black strap and buckle were hand cut and the buckle was embossed with aged old embossing enamel. The additional baubles for decoration were made using the Christmas Ornament file.

Of course in order to be lucky, you're going to need the luck so you'll want to use the
Lucky Big Expression file.  I used my Silhouette machine to weld the letters together which is why mine would look different from the original file.
The Lucky Big Expression file also comes with clovers, so you'll use them too.
No top hat for a leprechaun is complete without a few flowers, so I enjoyed using one of my favorite flower files, Paper Flower.  I used this to make open petal flowers, but there is a wonderful video on this link that shows how to make folded roses also.
You won't catch a leprechaun running around without his dapper bow tie, so you'll want to use the one that comes with the Top Hat File.
And last but not least, your lucky little leprechaun needs some cute legs so to create them I used the Witch Legs Shaped Card Set.
And there you have yourself a lucky little centerpiece to ring in St.Patrick's Day with.
Hope you've enjoyed your visit with me. 
Big hugs,
Lisa xx
