Happy Spring!

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Easter is over but it still is spring even though it feels like summer out there now.

Here is a spring time card I made for my niece using the "Easter Blossoms" set from StampinUp.

The flowers are the tattered flowers die by Tim Holtz.

The soft pink reminds me of dogwoods blooming.

Have a nice evening.

More Easter Cards

Here are the cards that went to my great nephew and great niece for Easter. With all the new Easter stamps I bought I went back to a few old ones for them. I used both these stamps on their cards last year, not they noticed.

Hope you have happy Saturday!

Good Afternoon everyone!

Ahhhhhhh... a quiet moment to myself. I got out of work on time, George isn't home yet, and dinner just needs to be reheated.

Here is card I made, that I saw somewhere in my blogging travels over the last month. I love the soft natural look of the eggs. It really evokes springtime huh?

I die cut the ovals and then sponged the ink onto them. Lo and behold I still had a speckle stamp that I had not gotten rid of in the last purge. I just lightly stamped the speckles onto the eggs and finished the card.  

You expect a wee chick to pop right out of one.

Happy Spring Everyone!

Hop to it! Time for those Bunny Cards!

One week until Easter and I am busy getting all my Easter cards done. Being as both the Pa. conventions were before Easter this year I bought lots of new Easter stamps. So I have been having loads of fun!

The Copics are perfect for the coloring on the stamps I bought.  I saw 30 seconds of a demo on Copics at the Allentown convention and learned more in those 30 seconds then I have in the 3 classes I have taken.  Boy- I can see my improvement already.

The first card is using the Close to my Heart set - "Sensational Season". The second card is from the Penny Black set- "Garden Friends".

The interesting technique in card 2 is the background is done from just inking a cuttlebug folder and placing a piece of card stock inside and gently pressing the ink onto the paper without putting it through the cuttle bug. It looks like a background stamp huh?

Stay tune for more Easter cards!
