This is going to be the first Easter in 19 years that I haven’t put out an Easter basket for my children. My son is 20 and my daughter is 17. And both of them now have jobs. So I just felt like it was a little silly to load up baskets full of candy for two people who can literally drive themselves to a convenience store and buy their own candy. LOL
But Sammi and I still dyed eggs (James gave up dyeing eggs years ago) and of course I made cards for the grand nieces and nephews. My newest little grandniece Gabby, was just born on the 22nd of March so she will have to wait for next year to get an Easter card.
This is a discontinued digital stamp by Birdie Brown. I used white Inkssentials Mini Glossy Accents to make the wool texture on the sheep. And the the pink stripes are just card stock cut into thin lines and glued in place.
Another Birdie Brown digi stamp (that is unfortunately no longer available). I cut his right ear out with scissors and then trimmed the paper to stop short of either side of his ear. That way his ear extended right off the edge of the page and I think it gave the image a whimsical effect. You may also notice that the two images are slightly different in size and shape. One of the cool things about using digital stamps is the users ability to resize them or flip them to create a mirror image.
I was on a Birdie Brown kick this Easter and these two cards feature another of her adorable, yet unobtainable digital images. The butterflies have Wink of Stella on them and Glossy Accents on top of that.
I am always fascinated by the way a different card base color can change the way the images pop. Both cards are pleasing to look at but, the one in green just jumps off of the screen.
Most likely you can tell by the look of this bunny who the artist is that created him. And you have probably guessed at the likelihood as to whether or not you could purchased this stamp.
This card features another bunny who’s ear flops right off the page and a shiny red pair of shorts and tie. I decided to try something a little different with the way in which I matted the image. For some reason the diamond shape and the graduated lines makes me think of Art Deco style.
I found this digital image on Pinterest and I just added a quote of my own design by adding a text box under the image in Windows. These two cards are for two 15 year old grandnephews and I thought they might be amused by the sentiment.
Happy Easter to you,
