Happy Easter

Hi and Happy Spring Break, and to all who celebrate... Happy Easter! My garden has begun to bloom, and we're enjoying fields of green and pops of color in my valley.

I have a card duo for you today, using the 2 new stamp sets from Poppystamps, one plaid, and the other floral.

The top is stamped with Flower Garden, and the bottom with Picnic Plaid.

2 wonderful all over stamps, that cover a large area.

I used the outer area frame of Memory Box: Egg Basket Frame, and created my own grass with a set of scissors that cut several 'blades' of grass at once.

One card is stamped and assembled on white card stock, the other on lavender.

I always find it easy to do 2 cards at one time, with just a little changeup. I left the sweet egg die attached so I could cut many eggs at once, each with different textures. How fun is that! Nuvo Crystal Drops for tulip centers.

Hope you found some inspiration today. And hope your week is full of crafty goodness!

Hello
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_0886

Hello from this just hatched happy chick! I made this simple little interactive card using : Chick and Egg, and Luscious Script Hello dies from Poppystamps spring line. The little chick is on a mini wobbler that makes him move when you pull down or to the side of it. The chick is in movement it the photo above.

IMG_0646

I had some leftover alcohol ink blended papers from another project. You can go to Jennifer McGuire to learn how to create your own. 

IMG_0648

I cut the top layer of the hello in white and adhered to the colorful background . Since I was going to add the white chick and egg to this background  I lightly blended some blue ink so they would show up better.

IMG_0653

I added this mini wobbler to the back of the chick so it would move when touched. It kinda makes him look even happier to be just hatched saying " HELLO"! I cute the shell out twice so I would have a top and bottom.

IMG_0656

I decided to lightly add some yellow on the chick. When you use a brush it's a much softer look.

 The panel is watercolor cardstock to even a bit more movement . I hope you all have a Happy Easter and wonderful Spring!

Easter Chicks
by Jeanne Jachna

Easter-Eggs-Two
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you're having a great day!  Today I'm sharing a fun Easter card made with the Poppystamps Easter Chicks stamp set with coordinating dies. 
Easter-Eggs-One
I know we all love Poppystamps dies , but I  thought  it would be fun to break out the stamps today.  I  find coloring very therapeutic.    It's easy to get lost while staying inside the lines! :P
Easter-Eggs-Four
I stamped the images from Easter Chicks on white card stock with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink.  Then I colored the images with Copic Markers.   You can use any markers you like.   If you're committed to crafting I'd invest in the Copics because over your lifetime they are a great investment.  You can refill the makers when they run dry, and a refill bottle will recharge the markers many times.  In the long run this is much cheaper than purchasing another set of markers just because you need only a few colors.  
Easter-Eggs-Five
When the images are colored I tape the coordinating die over the image and then run it through my die cut machine for a clean cut every time.  A bit of tape holds the die in place while running it through your machine.   
Easter-Eggs-Three
The background was created with distress ink.  This is another cost saver if you have room in your craft area, or you dont want to invest in colored card stock.  By inking white card stock you can make it any color you like.   This panel is inked with Shaded Lilac, Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron.  The sentiment is stamped on the colored panel AFTER it is inked to prevent smearing.   
Easter-Eggs
I had lots of fun creating this card and am delighted with how it turned out.  I know it's going to make someone really happy!

Happy Easter
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0022 2

Greetings and Happy Spring to all! I have a trio of Spring/Easter cards for you today, with background designer paper I made with Poppystamps new Picnic Plaid. 

DSC_0002

Once I got this generously sized plaid stamp into my Misti, it was hard to stop! As you can see, I used pastels and knew I wanted to create Easter cards.

DSC_0005

I used 2 main dies, coloring only one main image and mixing colors with my Distress Oxides.

DSC_0019 2

My tip for the day: use Q-tips for small spaces, and mix colors for a marbled look. It works great! Notice how I added pink to the bunny's cheeks and ears.

Easy breezy to get a soft pastel pink just where you want it with a Q-tip.

3 cards, easily done with a fun plaid stamp, and plenty of papers left over to do more!

Have a great weekend!

Happy Easter
by Donna Peachey

EZy Watermark_02-03-2019_18-24-50-2

With Easter on its way, I thought it might be nice to make something other than a card.

So today's design is something a little more 'fun' based in terms of design that's hopefully suitable as a small gift...  perhaps for a teacher or teachers aide?

To start with, you'll need a suitably sized notebook... 

IMG_5750
Some of you may well recognise this base layer design as I have used it once before!

Cut a piece of card to size (4.25 x 5.5"), add the Pinpoint Hearts as shown and then add the splatter of colour using a syringe and liquid watercolour.

IMG_5757

Next comes the Bubble Spiral...

IMG_5784

Followed by this partially cut Stitchwork Circle Frame.

To finish the base, cut approx 1/4 inch off the bottom and a little less from the left hand side.

Glue the base on to a piece of silver mirror card that measures 4.25 x 5.5"...

FullSizeRender

...  and add this Pierced Border to the left hand side.

IMG_5861-2

(Here's another photo of the finished design to explain what I mean and save you scrolling back up to the top)!

IMG_5790

To decorate, you'll need these...

IMG_5761

...  and these! 

I've cut the Peek A Boo Bunny three times and the word Easter twice before gluing the layers together.  Everything else has just been cut the once.

FullSizeRender 2

I also decided I would need an extra heart, so I've included the Heart Trio Showcase photo to show which of the smaller sizes I used.

Fdf-2

Once everything is glued in to place, you may want to add a layer or two of spray varnish to add a little protection and durability to the front cover before attaching it to the notebook.

I hope this fun design has inspired you to have a go.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...

Folk Art Easter
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6082-wm

Hello Friends!

This little Peek a Boo bunny is rolling ALL the eggs your way in this Easter card with the folksy feel! I used bright colors against a black background, inspired by some of my favorite Old World folk art. Take a look!

IMG_6079-wm

By using a few layered pieces, you can create a colorful, intricate background that pairs with the detailed Folk Decorated Eggs perfectly. Working from the top down, lay the Double Stitch Square Frame face down, then the piece with the Pierced Finnegan Circle on top, and the background color square on top. Glue them all together and adhere it to your card base.

IMG_6077-wm

Your layered stack does not need to be pretty or perfect, as long as it all fits together with no layers peeking through.

IMG_6081-wm

To give the card a little dimension, I added tiny bits of pop dots to the Peek a Boo Bunny and the eggs, and arranged them on the card. Adorable!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Hippity Hoppity
by Jeanne Jachna

Easter-Scene-Four
I enjoy making cards depicting scenes with die cuts, but it's not always easy to find images that are proportioned to work together.  I'm loving the new "whittle" series of dies because they are perfectly sized and coordinated with cute stitched detail so they're ready to play together. 
Easter-Scene
I started this card with a simple distress ink background.  I used a piece of scrap paper to create a mask inking the sky with one half of the mask, and the grassy foreground with the other.   I topped the inked panel with a Double Stitch Scallop Rectangle Frame.
Easter-Scene-Five
I set a piece of clear plastic over the panel and arranged different die cuts until I was happy with their placement.   Because the plastic is clear, the background shows through allowing me to get an idea of how the card will look when all the elements are arranged.
Easter-Scene-Two
The Doodle Happy Easter die makes a sweet sentiment.   I filled the Whittle Basket with Whittle Eggs and topped it with a Prim and Proper Bow.
Easter-Scene-Four
The Chick and Egg are not part of the "Whittle" series but it's part of the new Spring Release and looked sweet next to the basket.  Wouldn't it be fun if there were a little chick hiding inside ALL the eggs?   Now that would be a surprise wouldn't it? 
Easter-Scene-One
Enjoy your day and never stop having fun!
