Easter Ideas

Many of you may know that I first started stamping almost 25 years ago. Well this little Easter Bunny is a stamp I've had for almost that long. I have not used it in a long time and thought I'd use it to make up some cards for this year. (Yeah I know - last minute!?!)
The image was colored with Copics which was GREAT compared to old markers I used to use. Three of the eggs are glittered. Sponged in some sky and green under the grass. The grass image comes from the With Sympathy set from Papertrey Ink. For the clear window I used the acetate that the Papertrey Stamps come on - it's very sturdy and I figured I'd have a use for it someday! It's almost the perfect size for an A2 card. I made both a "boy" and a "girl" version of the cards.

Next I thought I'd finish up a card I started as part of this month's Blog Hop with Papertrey. I used Papertrey's Wishing You set (one of my absolute faves) and Nichole's newly posted tip for tying a button to a bow. Oh my gosh I LOVED this tip! Really simple card but I wanted to dress up the inside a bit. After stamping the tinier tulips from the set I discovered that the oval flower center from PTI's Floral Frenzy made the perfect sized little "Easter eggs." And there you have it.


Wishing all of you a blessed Easter. Thanks for stopping by.

That bunny card is absolutely adorable! Can't believe how old the stamp is. It doesn't look outdated at all.
