With all of the preparations and card making I have been doing for the upcoming Craft Fair I have been procrastinating making my Easter cards for my nieces and nephews. When I was a teenager I was the Queen of Procrastination. One of those who was known to say “I work better under pressure” but, now that I’m in my 40’s I am the Empress of Pro-activeness. So having to whip up 10 of the world’s cutest Easter cards at the last minute is not my favorite thing to do.
I used an adorable digital stamp from Birdie Brown for my one of my Easter cards. I also used micro beads to give the bunny’s egg a little sparkle. Here is a closer look.
I used white chalk ink to sponge the clouds onto the blue paper and I used the Stampin’ Up Word Window punch to make the fence. As much as I would like to take credit for the fence it is not my original idea but, one that I saw when surfing the web a few weeks back. I saw the idea for the fence here nicolederendorf.com
I used Martha Stewart Flocking for the grass and then I used some Easter Egg stickers I had leftover from last year to make it seem as if this little bunny had just finished his deliveries. Cute, huh?
If you saw my post from yesterday you know that I made a spinning rack similar to a Clip It Up. It only cost me about $20 to make including the clips that I bought from JoAnn’s, the lamp kit parts I purchased at Home Depot and the two lamp shades I got for $4 at Goodwill. There are plenty of great step by step tutorials on how to make your own spinning rack on YouTube. Here are a few photos of the rack I made.
Ha, Ha. You can see my bloody Halloween heart in the background there. Halloween is always lurking around the corner in our house.
I am entering this card for the following Challenges: Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge, The Festive Friday Easter Challenge for Nicole Derendorf and at Card Making Mama’s Easter Challenge
I love your fence and the sparkly egg! Thanks for playing along!
Although I have looked in on your webpage many times before, this is the first time I have played along.
Holy cats, I’m in awe of your own clip it up! How amazing! Great cards too!
