The sentiment stamp is designed by Kimberly Sabel for Hampton Art and all other products are by Stampin' Up! The patterned paper is from the Fresh Prints designer series paper stack. The colors in this collection are: Coastal Cabana, Crumb Cake, Real Red, and Whisper White. Thanks for stopping by!

Little Lamb Easter Card

Good evening! I wanted to make sure my parents received their Little Lamb Easter Card in the mail before I posted it. They raise sheep and every Spring we have a pasture full of baby lambs. They primarily raise Dorset sheep but they have a few others as well. The lamb stamp on this card is by Stampabilities and the sentiment stamp is by Hero Arts. Using PEARLustre Amethyst embossing powder by Stampendous!  I heat embossed the sentiment. The patterned papers are from a freebie paper pack from a magazine. To bring out the yellow in the flower centers I added a layered embosslits butterfly with a little Stickles for sparkle. Well, that about sums it up. I want to thank you for stopping by and I wish you and your family a Blessed and Happy Easter.

Basket Bunny Easter Card

Hello! I finally finished with my Easter cards and just in time to pop them in the mail today. It seems I always procrastinate with holiday cards. However, there is an element of fun to having a deadline that I have to meet.

These Basket Bunny Easter Cards both feature an image from Fred She Said called Bunneh!. The images are pre-colored which helps speed things along when you don't have much coloring time! I kept the designs simple to minimize layering and to make sure no extra postage would be required. The patterned papers on the pastel card are by Paper Pizzazz and the yellow and purple card papers are by DCWV. I used the Scalloped edge punch and Boho Blossom punch by Stampin' Up! on both cards and cut the ovals with oval dies. Thanks for stopping by and I wish you and your family a Blessed and Happy Easter!!!

Sweet Chick Easter Card


Hello! I hope you are having a lovely day! This morning I ignored a few chores to spend some time in my craft room. It's "justifiable" since I have several more Easter cards I need to make. Right? Over the weekend I was going through a stack of printed digital images and found this Sweet Chick already cut out, matted and ready to use. The image is by Fred She Said and came pre-colored. The patterned papers are from DCWV and the Happy Easter sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set by Stampin' Up! This Sweet Chick Easter Card is my favorite from the Easter cards I've made this year. I love the yellow, purple and green together! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

Cute Egg Easter Wishes Card

Good morning! I was searching through my digital Easter images and found this really cute egg with a bear. It's been a couple of years since I downloaded it and I couldn't find the artist information. The image is pre-colored which helped me select the colors for this card. The background yellow paper is by DCWV and the red polka dots is from Stampin' Up! I used a couple of die cuts, my Itty Bitty flower punch and I heat embossed the sentiment. The final touch were three candy dots in the center of the flowers. The layout is one I use a lot, especially when I don't have time to come up with something new. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!

Easter Basket Kitty Card


Good afternoon! I have to admit that my crafting mojo has been running on low lately!!! However, this morning I was inspired by one of my fellow crafters, KT Fit Kitty, with her Easter Chick Card. I love the colors she used and the cute image by Gerda Steiner. I immediately purchased this adorable Silly Easter Kitten in Basket image to make my Easter Basket Kitty Card. I colored the image with my Copic markers and used patterned papers from Echo Park. The layout for the card comes from a sketch I found at Sassy Studio Designs. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
