Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to those celebrating today! We had a great day here and it’s time to share my Easter cards.  Instead of breaking up the posts, I am sharing all 3 cards in this post.

 

The first card was made for my nephew using Lawnscaping’s current Sweets challenge.

Lawnscaping Sweets challenge

 

I used Lawn Fawn’s Eggstra Special Easter stamp set with their coordinating dies. I also used the Grassy border die and the Stitched Journal card.  Images were colored with copics and I added some decoration to the Easter eggs with my Signo white pen.

Next up is the card I made for my niece using the current SFYTT at Reverse Confetti~

I used the Hippity Hoppity stamp set and the Thanks Tag Confetti dies. The bunny was colored with Copics.

And last I have the card I made today for my parents using the March Farm Fresh Challenge – Animals Rule at The Greeting Farm.  I used the Eggstra Special stamp set. The images were colored with Copics.

 

2016 Card 42 - Greeting Farm Eggstra Special

 

I also made my parents little Easter baskets using the Stampin Up’ Berry Basket die. They were a lot of fun to put together! I embossed the sides of the blue basket with the zig zag embossing folder. I put the purple one together first and totally forgot to do that extra step. It adds a lot of interest.

Happy Easter and Happy April!

 

I finally got back in my craft room this morning. I created this card for my nephew using 3 different challenges, listed below.

 

2015 Card 31 - Taylored Expression Somebunny Loves You-001

 

I used my new Taylored Expressions Somebunny Loves You stamp set along with the coordinating die cuts and the Little Bits Easter Confetti and Carrot die cuts.  I also used TE’s Rolling Clouds and Rolling Hills dies in building my scene. The paper is some old We R Memory Keepers Peep from several years ago.

 

I used the following challenges in making my card~

 

the new sketch at Sweet Sunday Sketch

the die cut challenge at The Paper Players

and the challenge at The Friday Mashup (using Easter Critters, I skipped mashing up the two challenges)

Friday Mashup 4-3-15

 

I hope everyone has a wonderful day! We saw my nephew a few hours ago and will be going up to my parents shortly for Easter dinner.  Tonight is Opening Night for baseball! I am SOOO excited. One of my fave pitchers is now playing for the Chicago Cubs and he’s the pitcher tonight. ESPN is airing it so I will get to see him!

 

Supplies~

Stamps: Taylored Expressions Somebunny Loves You

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black (for critters), Ranger Archival Jet Black (sentiment)

CS: MFT Sweet Tooth, Gumdrop

PP: WRMK Peep

Other: all TE – Build a Scene Rolling Clouds and Rolling Hills; Little Bits Easter Confetti and Carrot; Somebunny Loves You coordinating dies

 

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!

 

I made my last card for this Easter earlier today for my nephew.  The bunny is cut with felt, hopefully he will like that 🙂 He’s not feeling well so instead of him coming here, we may go see him later today to give him his Easter goodies.

 

Card 14 - April2014 MFT LJD Easter Bunny

 

Funny story…the little green “grass”  is actually the top for the carrot.  I had no idea until today!  I used it on the calendars I made earlier in the month and it just dawned on me when I cut the carrot die cut that I hadn’t see the top for it…duh, it’s there just not what I thought it was.  I had a much easier time this time lining up the stamps on the die cuts. I think having the natural light in my room helped a lot.

 

Here is the inside~
