"SAY IT ISN'T SO-O-O-O-O-O, SAY IT ISN'T SO." (another song in my head!!)

This blog hop week went way too fast.  I keep coming up with more ideas to show you, so you just MUST keep visiting to see more fun ideas, ok?

I have my last spring flower card to share with you and then something for EASTER, ok?  This time I used the 1/2" Circle, Fancy Flower and the Five Petal punches with the Triple Treat Flower a-la-carte stamp (one single stamp at a bargain of $8.95 if you order it, OR for FREE if you have a $50 order and you get it free for a Sale-a-Bration item!!)  Hurry - Sale-a-bration ends in TWO WEEKS!!!

I used Pool Party, More Mustard and So Saffron for the card stock colors.  For Ink I used More Mustard, Island Indigo and Early Espresso.  I used some DSP and cut it like a ribbon banner, then layered the flower on top by punching out parts with the punches I named above.

Hopefully with this closeup you can see the 3 layers of this flower with 3 different punches.

Now I want to share a few fun ideas for EASTER.  The first one I saw from France Martin -(Hey Frenchie.) It is the cutest chick you have ever seen.  I used her idea and made a few slight changes to make it mine.

 Isn't he the most adorable thing ever??!!  I used the scalloped circle die and MY BIG SHOT to cut him out.  Leave the top little bit inside the circle so it will not cut out and that will make your fold for your card.  I used daffodil yellow for the chick, and sponged around the edges of body, eyelids and wings.  The wings are clipped from the extra large scalloped circle punch.

I used a triangle of peach parfait and cut thin cuts into it for the "foofie" feathers on top of his head.  His beak is also peach parfait - hand cut a double triangle folded.  And circle punches for the eyes.

I used the It's a Wrap Holidays stamp set (item #122772 clear) for the inside greeting.  I used concord crush, melon mambo, lucky limeade and tempting turquoise markers to color the areas I wanted to stamp. My camera did not like photographing this daffodil yellow color - sorry about the bad photo.

My second project is the CUTEST LITTLE LAMB candy holder I have ever seen.  Again, thanks to Frenchie for the idea.

 This lamb is created with the Two Tags die for the base.  Die cut the Two Tags die (just the scallop tag - 2 needed per lamb) and score from the bottom 1 1/4 inches on both pieces.  Put sticky strip along one piece and stick them together.  This makes the "box bottom" of the candy holder.

Next, use your Crop-a-Dile and punch a hole at the top of both tags for your string or ribbon.  I used Wisteria Wonder bakers twine.  Now comes the decorating.
 It is hard to see the layer, but his head is a scallop circle in the same white.  His top knot or bangs is the largest flower on the boho blossoms punch, cutting 5 petals off and layering that on top of the bigger one.

The black face is the small oval punch with a bit of the top cut off.  The ears are the word window punch with 1/4 cut off and used as the hoofs or feet.  I think my next one I am going to very lightly sponge basic gray around the scallop circle punch head so it shows up better.  I used a soft subtle pink brad for the nose and the largest punch of the crop-a-dile for the eye and then used a black marker for the pupils.

Make sure you use some glue dots for your candy inside so it doesn't fall out.
