March Shoebox Cards

Hi Everyone!!

It was 45 degrees out yesterday and it snowed last night... That's almost an April Fool.. a month early... tee hee!!

So glad we had a great turn out tonight!  (We missed Anita though...)

Here are the fun creations from tonight!!

My card was inspired by Julie Carriere... I really wanted to do a hemp flower on there... but wasn't quite sure how to do it. So we used the embossing dots folder (after the washi tape was applied)... Washi tape across the bottom, hole punched on the side to hold the hemp as well as stapler (love that Stapler!!).  Used the Art Philosophy cartridge for the sentiment (two pieces) and a layer of kraft paper to complete this fun card!!

Julie's Fun card featured a leprechaun!!  It was fun to put this card together and we all giggled as we did it!!  

Who needs some March Magic!!  

Kathy used the Artiste cartridge to create this bunny box!!  She also gave us two roses to add to each side and pink glitter eyes... but we needed to put something inside before we decorated so we will add those at a later date (there is a slit that goes over the bunny that isn't wide enough to accommodate the extras on the bunny... so fill it first... then decorate!!)

What a fun way to share an Easter morning surprise!!

Lori's lovely card features embossed honeycomb and we used green and yellow markers to color the flower stamp and the greeting!  Love the bee stickers!!  So very cute!!

Just a great card!!

Melani taught us to do a stand up 3-D card!!  She stamped the elephant for us and we used dollar store make up to add color to him and then cut him out (lol most of us cut him out and then colored him) She mentioned that liquid glass would be nice on the tears.  We also stamped the dots all over. 

The base is 4x8 and we cut slits at 1.25 from 1.5-4.5 and then flipped it over and cut slits at 1.25 3-6 inches... then scored at 1.5 to the first cut line, at 3 from top to second cut line, then at 4.5 from the first cut line to the bottom and at 6 from the second cut line to the bottom.  The folds are all mountain first and valley second.

We raised the elephant by putting pop dots on the middle section to keep the adhesive floating where it needed to be.  Also, beware of putting adhesive on the back piece only when adhering to the 4.25x5.5 background.

Love this 3-D effect

Roxxy shared this darling Easter card with a blue bunny crawling into his tree hole.  The background is an wood embossing folder.  We used a xyron to glue the leaves and added a darling cotton ball for his tail!  Adorable!!

Shannon's super cute Hello Kitty Card! the bow is made out of two hearts and a circle!!  Such a clever idea!!  Hello is the purrrrfect greeting for this fun card!!  
We added some whiskers and a pretty pink purrrl for a pop of glitz!!  

Super sweet!!

Another Great night of card making!!

Thank you for coming and sharing your amazing talents!!

Let's meet again on Tuesday April 5th!!
