I didn't love this stamp until I cut it into two pieces. I really did cut it! This is just one of the pieces. It made it so much easier to work with it. I stamped it on very vanilla using black stazon, then stamped with En Francais in old olive over the top of it. I used an olive marker to color in the stems. I stamped the flowers on another piece of vanilla, colored them with an aqua painter and melon mambo ink, and added highlights with a mambo marker and white gel pen. Next, I pressed the colored tops into versa mark and embossed them with dazzling details. I cut them out and used dimensionals to pop them up. I also tied on some mambo seam binding. I embossed a layer of crumb cake with the dotted folder after I stamped the birthday greeting on it (Bring on the Cake), and then mounted that on a crumb cake base. Super pretty card. It really sparkles!

This is one of the single stamps called Ears For You available through March. I used the new oval framelits to cut out the layers. Be careful cutting the card base. You want to leave a bit of the fold so it actually folds over like a card. I also embossed it with the fancy fan folder. I used melon mambo, raspberry ripple, and regal rose to color the bunnies (marker on rubber method). The words are lucky limeade. After I stamped the bunnies I masked them then I stamped with the leaves from Just Believe in certainly celery. I also covered the words with a post-it note so they wouldn't get ink on them. I used a regal rose marker and made little dots on the leaves then I covered over the dots with dazzling diamonds. I sponged the edges of everything with regal rose. The raspberry ripple oval is attached with dimensionals. The ribbon is attached with glue dots.
