All Ears!

Hello friends! Today, I am all ears! Bunny ears, that is. 

My two cards are made with the DRS Designs Bunny Ears stamp.  This stamp is super cute and ranges from $3.05 to $6.10 in the store depending on if you get it unmounted, cling, or mounted on a wood base.  I get unmounted and use them in my MISTI.

I used THIS wreath tutorial  by Dina at Splitcoaststampers to create the base wreath for my two cards.  It was super easy and I love the results!
I did the first card CAS.  I did a layer of ears, colored them up with my new Arteza Brush Pens, did some doodling, added some Stickles, and then topped it off with some pearls one of my Grandsons had drug out of the craft room (they are smart boys!).

My second card started with the same base of bunny ears, but I just kept adding layers of ears and eggs and doodles.  Hubby thinks it looks like Easter blew up on this one, but I think that is a good thing - lol!
I also added in some Open Leaf Branch twigs ($5 unmounted and so versatile), and the egg off the Easter Ears Leonard Pig image ($5 unmounted).  The greeting is Deco Easter Greetings ($4.50 unmounted).  Before adding the greeting, I splattered on some brown watercolor paint to add even more detail. 

Easter is on its way.  I am really looking forward to it this year because I am hiding eggs for the adults, teenagers, and kids - everyone is going to have fun. 

Many hugz,



  1. Two fabulous cards Nancy, what a clever idea to use bunny ears to create a wreath - great dimension on the second one.

  2. That's a darling way to use the ears!! So cute and yet pretty too. Fabulous cards!

  3. OMG Nancy, those bunny ears are so adorable. A bunny ear wreath who would have thought it possible and to add to that an Easter egg bunny ear one. I love it :)

  4. What beautiful and clever bunny ears wreathes for both cards, Nancy. Your 2nd card has so many layers and embellishments that it was almost like hunting for Easter Eggs. So fun and creative, my friend. Have fun on your adult and kids Easter Egg Hunt:-) Hugs..Nancy

  5. I really like the wreath design for your Easter cards, and the punny sentiment works well too :) Nice job on both!

  6. These are so pretty! I like the colors that you used!

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Martini, Peanut Butter Cupakes, and Art

Hello Friends. Today, I have an ecletic mix of drinks, dessert, and art. First, it's T-day somewhere in the world so time for a drink post which I am linking to Elizabeth's Blog - Altered Book Lover.  Last week we had a work related dinner.  When the waitress asked what I wanted to drink, I had a sudden craving for a martini.  I use to love them, but I guess my tastes have changed because I wasn't a fan.  I was a fan of the chips and dips though! And the day before, I brought my Sister's fabulous peanut butter cupcakes.  Mainly because I was craving them and couldn't ask her to make just one..... Over at **Art*Journal*Journey* Elle picked a theme of Books, Cats, and Tea (you can pick one, two or three of the items).  I did a Bible Journal Page in my Journaling Bible - Luke 13:24-25.  After a layer of Gesso, I took a Sharpie pen and drew the kitty, then the narrow door, and then colored the door with Arteza Brush pens. The verse was written with a Micron pen.  This

Milkshake Malt Porter and a Bit of Art

 Hello friends and Happy T-day. It has been hit or miss with me lately on T-day posts. The remodel of our house next door has taken our mental and physical energy.  I think a few more weeks and things will be on the contractor instead of us.  Hopefully I will be back to normal by then. My Oldest Darling Daughter asked if we wanted to come for dinner Saturday.  Translation:  go to the store with me and we will bring part of dinner to your house and you cook the rest.  While at the store, I saw one 6 pack of this fun milkshake porter so, of course, I bought it.  It smells wonderful (a hint of chocolate and a hit of malt) and has a light creamy taste.  I would definitely buy it again if I see it.  My son-in-law did not like it, but he is more a  Miller Lite fan.  Now if this had been a whiskey, he would have been all over it.  LOL.  Linking this to Elizabeth's blog for the T-party gang. Darling Daughter had tried her hand at dried pintos, and she rocked them (I will begging for a rep
