We are thrilled to introduce our special Guest Designer - Wanda Guess and we know you are going to love Wanda's beautiful card creations.
Hi! Wanda here! So excited to be a guest designer for one of my favorite companies! I have been stamping and scrap-booking for 25 years now. My love of card making led me to start my blog ten years ago. I have me so many lovely and talented people through crafting. I love bright colors and embellishments for my projects. My motto is 'more is more' and I enjoy combining colors and textures. My first creative passion is photography. I live in Northern California with my husband and our sweet cat Lucky. I try to do something creative every day! If I'm not making cards, I'm probably on Instagram. Thanks to Doodlebug for this fun opportunity to share with you today.
Recently I received a big ole box of happy from Doodlebug Designs! YIPPEEE! Long one of my very favorite companies. I adore their sweet style and cute images. They always make me smile. (And I totally collect their awesome pins too!) I received this box because Doodlebug recently revamped their clear stamps products and now they have matching dies for all their stamp sets too! I made some projects yesterday and can't wait to share them with you. So cute for Spring and Easter. Lots of bright color and just down right cuteness.
REVIEW: For my review of the stamps - they stamp nicely, straight out of the package. No bare spots or ink blotching. A+ in that regard. When I went to open the dies, much to my excitement, I found out that they are pre cut! AWESOME! You don't have to cut them apart with your snippers! I love that some companies are starting to do this now. It's such a nice touch. So, I definitely recommend the Doodlebug stamps/dies.... And you guys know I'm addicted to their shape Sprinkles already. But we won't go there today. 
First up is a bright and colorful Easter Card! The finished card is A2 size with a white card base. I layered a strip of that gorgeous plaid paper on the right side, and then layered more white on top of that piece. Next I stamped and die cut out all those adorable shapes, and colored them with Copic Markers! I used colors to match the patterned paper so it all goes together.
The sentiment was stamped and die cut out with a banner from my stash. I added some flowers and leaves to complete the banner edge!
I die cut a stitched circle out of white and then a larger stitched circle using the grass patterned paper. Then I layered on my bunny, lamb and Easter basket! SO SWEET! I added a few more of the shape sprinkles tiny flowers.

Here are some of my supplies! 
Next up is a cheerful all occasion card sure to make someone smile!! The card is an A2 white card base. I layered beautiful golden yellow floral paper to make my bottom layer. I die cut a stitched rectangle from Neenah cardstock. I used the Polka Party Stencil from Taylored Expressions to make a dots background. I faded out the color from the bottom right up to the top left. Just thought it looked happy!! 
The 'grass' layer is part of a scalloped rectangle die cut, cut to fit. I used Twisted Citron Distress Ink to color it a bright green.
I stamped and die cut out the bee, the sun and the little girl and colored them with Copic Markers.
Isn't she sweet!? Sending you Sunshine!! 
That's it for me today! Wishing you a blessed, happy and creative weekend! See you soon! XOXO
