Jillibean Soup Cards - Chicken Noodle and Egg Drop - Yummy!

Here are a variety of cards I made for That Scrappy Girl. These products are available in the store and she is running a NSD special until May 1st - FREE SHIPPING! Just use the code NSD2010 during checkout. I used Chicken Noodle Soup papers and stickers on this card set. I used the edge I cut off from the journaling block on my envelope, so that I could tie everything together. The kraft card base and envelope are also Jillibean Soup. The buttons are from Basic Grey.

On this card and envie set I used Egg Drop Soup papers and stamps. I paper pieced his body using more of the paper. The kraft card base and envelope and the Journaling Sprouts are also from Jillibean Soup.
And last, a little card in honor of my son, who's favorite animal is a pig :-) I used Chicken Noodle Soup and cut elements from the different papers.

Sassafras Lass - Nerdy Bird, Apple Jack and some Felties!

I got a chance to play with Sassafras Lass's newer collections Nerdy Bird and Apple Jack this weekend. These collections, along with the fun Felties can be found at That Scrappy Girl. What I love about Sassafras Lass is that you can mix the different collections together so easily - like I did on the layout. And of course I am never one to pass up using bright colored product either! I even went a little environment friendly and used some of the packaging from the Felties on the Thank You card.

I was honored to be asked to join in on the fun for the April Blog Hop. If you started here first, be sure to start at the Die Cut Diva blog, so you don't miss anyone! If you have already been hopping along then the next stop on the hop is Lisa.

Here are all the supplies and instructions for the pink card above:

Patterned Paper - Collage Press (2 sided)
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Fabric Alphabet - American Crafts

Pearls - Kaisercraft
Oval Template - Coluzzle

I used an oval template to cut the pink patterned paper for the front of the card and adhered. I then cut a rectangular piece of cream patterned paper for the inside of the card (the other side of the patterned pink paper) and used a border punch on both ends. I adhered the paper to the inside of the card, added a few pearls to flower centers on the paper and added the alphabet stickers. To the band that goes around the card - I added more letters, a button and placed a pearl in the center of the button.

Cut two rectangles from patterned paper (one for inside of card, one for outside). Cut circle from blue patterned paper, slightly larger than hole in the window card. I used a Coluzzle, but you could use other templates or even a cup or bowl. Adhere rectangle (with hole) to the front of card, add pearls around the circle and alphabet stickers. Adhere rectangle of brown patterned paper to the inside of the card and add flower sticker so that it is in the center of the window. Add pearl to center of flower.
