365 Cards - Day 44 & D2D Kidding Around

Aloha and welcome to another wonderful Wednesday at 365 Cards and D2D Card Ideas!! First up is the challenge for 365 Cards. We're doing a theme week which is "fancy folds" and I chose a "double stair step" card. I've seen them around but couldn't find a tutorial in standard measurements so I tried one in metric (find it here)...didn't work out quite right but you can't see where I goofed up! ;) Other than that pretty simple from there...just colored the images with copics, cut "eggs" from oval nesties and layered it all up!

Here's the other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. Stampin' for the Weekend - Easter
2. Aly's Sunday Challenge - bunnies
3. Bee Crafty - easter + digi
4. Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog - Easter
5. Craft Us Crazy - happy Easter/Spring
6. Craft Your Days Away Challenge - spots and stripes
7.  Stamps R Us -Easter
8. Creative Inspirations Challenge - Easter
9.  Phindy’s Friday challenge - Easter
11. Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges - Easter
12. Die cut Dreams Challenge blog - Easter
13. Digi’s with attitude! Challenge #21 - Easter
14. Fun at Fairy Knoll - Eggs/Oval
15. fun with shapes and more - Easter + something punched/cut
16. Hand Stamped Sentiments - Easter
17. OLLCB - Happy Easter
18. Paper Cutz Challenge - bunny, lamb, chick or easter eggs
19. Paper Issues - Show Us your grass (easter/spring)
20. Pollycraft Monday Challenge  - Easter

And next up is my sample for this week's Card Ideas Challenge which is "Kidding Around" (i.e., make a card for a child). You still have through Friday to play, so join us! I used "beary big gift" image on mine and some bright SU! paper (retired).
The card base is just flat and then I made the layer with the bear into the "card"! Figured a kid doesn't need a bunch of writing! :)
Other challenges I was inspired by:
1. A Spoon Full of Sugar - All creatures great and small
2. Catch The Bug Challenge Blog - 4 or more layers
3. CRAFT Challenge -  Animals/pets
4. Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge - embossing: kinda hard to see but the bottom layer is embossed with dots
5. Digi Doodle Shop's Best - Happy Birthday
6. Fairy Tale Challenge blog - Happy Birthday
7. Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge - Card/project for a child
8. i{heart}2stamp - sketch
9. Karens Doodles Challenge Blog - happy birthday
10. Mami Doodles: Digital Stamps - punch or die cut
11. My Time To Craft Challenge - on the spot
12. Paper Pretties - at least two Designer papers
13. Totally Stampalicious - anything goes

Thanks for stopping by again this week and can't wait to see what you come up with!



Both are such lovely, happy cards! The first card, Easter, is perfect and would make a great decoration for the Easter holiday!
Love the colors in your 'kidding around' card for a young child. What a great idea to put a mini card on a panel.

Can't wait to see your next designer cards, which always gets me up on Wednesdays!

Love, SAM aka MOM
