It’s about time…

…I should post some cards! Dontchya think?

So without further ado, two of my first cards made in New Zealand:

This one refers to the Clean & Simple Sketch #81 btw. Great sketch, and so mail-friendly!!

I used SU Cardstock, patterned paper from the Lemonade 6×6 Paper Pad (Basic Grey), SUs Label punch, a black pen and the sentiment is from the Beyond Basic Borders set from Papertrey Ink stamped in Palette Noir.

The next one is an idea that had been in my head ever since I got that adorable Sweet Kawaii set (My Cute Stamps), or to be more precise: one of two ideas ^^ (such a tease!) Meet the popsicles aka the easter bunny gang:

Oh yes: Popsicle – Stick = Bunny
Sounds all logical to me 🙂
BTW The sentiment just popped into my head while making the card, it’s part of an Easter song we sung in English classes at school (back in 6th grade or something ;)). Since I had no printer near me, I just wrote it onto Whisper White CS, cut that out as flags, bent them with a pencil, adhered and stapled ’em down.

The paper is Basic Grey Lemonade, the card base is from Stampin’ Up. A Corner Chomper and a White Signo Broad Gel pen were harmed in the making of this card 😉

They look like they’re having a helluva lot of fun 😉

So, whaddya think?

Xoxo – Nina

ETA: Alice in Wonderland IN 3D (!!) was great! Loved every minute of it, such a cool and artistically worthwhile film!

  4. Hi there 🙂 Deine Eishäschen sind ja zu goldig – auf was für Ideen Du immer kommst! Die Karte für den CAS Sketch hast Du auch wieder super umgesetzt – ich glaub den hole ich auch noch nach. Ist Deine Gastfamilie denn auch schon vom Scrappen infiziert? Ich grinse immer noch bei dem Gedanken an einen Günther-Schmitt-Käfer am anderen Ende der Welt *g* LG, D.

    PS: Den Upper Crest Punch hab ich schon seit fast nem 3/4 Jahr, hatte ihn aber leider seit Weihnachten nicht mehr in Gebrauch.

  5. Great cards! That pop of the different coloured patterned papers works so well!
