Star Struck Stampers Sunday stamping adventures

Earlier this month I shared some of the cards we made at my upline's team meetings - here and here.  We met again today, and my fellow demonstrators brought some more awesome designs for us to make. Just look at these beauties:
 stamp set - Happy Easter Bunny; ink - Chocolate Chip, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana; Stampin' Write markers - Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette, Wisteria Wonder, Wild Wasabi; Stampin' Chalk marker - White; card stock - Crushed Curry, Whisper White; Big Shot with Top Note Die, Dots & Stripes masks, sponge daubers, Stampin' Dimensionals
This one uses the Hand Stamped Sentiments colors - Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, and Coastal Cabana, although I'm pretty sure I'm the only team member who plays along with challenges.  I sneaked in some extra colors while I was coloring that Happy Easter Bunny, though.

stamp set - So Very Happy; ink - Marina Mist; card stock - Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, Marina Mist, Whisper White; punches - 1/2" circle, 1-3/8" circle, 1-3/4" circle, Word Window; Big Shot with Word Bubbles framelits, Stampin' Dimensionals
Isn't that just the cutest card?  I love punch art.  Nisha's design had the sentiment stamped directly on the Marina Mist "sky" but I stamped it badly and used the Word Bubble framelit "cloud" to recover.  

stamp set - Lotus Blossom; ink - Pistachio Pudding; Rich Razzleberry, Blushing Bride, Always Artichoke; card stock - Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss; Big Shot with Stylish Stripes embossing folder; 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon - Blackberry Bliss
Deb felt badly that her card wasn't specific to our themes of Easter or kids, but this beautiful & elegant design seems perfect for Easter.  She also thought she didn't have anything to offer as far as teaching us anything, but none of us had used this stamp before.  I  was a little put off by a three-step stamp but it was easier than I expected, and I love the results!
