Easter cards full of bunnies, lambs and chicks.

Easiest Easter Ever

Posted on

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.

Birdie Brown Easter Bunny

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.

Adorable easter cards

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,

Hippity Hoppity with Papertrey Ink

Posted on

 

My own children are 15 and 18 this Easter and suffice to say some of the mystery of the Easter Bunny is gone. But I still enjoy all of the cute images of chicks, bunnies and eggs that go along with Easter. So thank goodness for nieces, nephews and grandnephews and grandnieces!

I made two versions of this card featuring a rabbit from Hippity Hoppity by Papertrey Ink. The first card featured this cute bunny in blue for one of my grandnephews. I used the matching Hippity Hoppity die set to cut out the bunny and the eggs. The trees are from Lawn Fawn’s Critters Down Under and the birds are from Lawn Fawn Home Sweet Home. And the grass is made with a paper punch.

I made a pink bunny for my brother’s daughter. As  you can see the two cards are similar but, not the same. This second card also includes the chick from the Hippity Hoppity set.

Easter Bunny Punch Card

 

I also made a ton (125 to be exact) of these Easter Bunny Punch Cards for the Council on Aging too. The assembly of them was pretty easy since I had Peggy and Joan and a few other ladies helping me out. The woodgrain paper is made with a woodgrain stamp on brown cardstock and the circles and ovals can be taylored to create whatever sized bunny you would like.

Happy Easter,

A Bunny’s Work is Never Done

Easter Card

Unfortunately, I ran out of time this morning and I had to photograph my card at my desk at work! Don’t you just love the notepad paper background? LOL

I made my annual batch of Easter cards for my nieces and nephews and I wanted to share my favorite ones with you.   This one came out so cute! It was a lot of fun masking the elements of this card to create an Easter scene.

This card features the same bunny stamped 3 times. I just wish I could have captured the colors better but, as I said I was in a rush this morning. My favorite part of this card are the 3D flowers. The inside of the card reads…”to love!”

Chocolate Easter Bunny

 

I have decided that this bunny must be made of chocolate because he is so dark brown. I loved everything about this card Except the color of the bunny. I only own 3 or 4 brown markers from Copic and they all seem much too dark. Probably I need to watch some videos on blending the colors better.  However, the ducks on this card just make my day. They are so cute!

A random winner will be picked to win a $50 gift card to SSS store! 4 more days to play along if you are feeling lucky.

Happy Stamping,

Bunny’s Big Wish

The second challenge is up at OWH’s Virtual Card Making Party (VCMP)! This challenge is to use a critter of some kind on your project.

My card features a cute little bunny who’s wishes just came true when he discovers a patch of carrots. He is joined in the carrot patch by some super cute ladybugs too.

The lady bugs and butterflies are from a Hero Arts set called woodland creatures. The carrots are from the Stampendous Stretchy Bunny set and the little rabbit is a $1 stamp from Michaels (2012).

I couldn’t resist using a pair of googly eyes on this little guy!

Here Come Peter Cotton Tail or You Spin Me Right Round

Posted on

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

Clumsy Bunny

I used Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol to color in the stamp from Stampendous. This is the same bunny stamp from the Buzzed Bunny card except that I repositioned the stamp to change his shape. I love his expression of blissful ignorance!

Egg Hunt

Posted on

I hid eggs behind other objects in the picture by using the masking technique. Inside the card I asked my 3 year niece to see if she could find all of the hidden eggs! The stamps are from stampendous.
