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!

Colorful Easter Card

This bright and Colorful Easter Card was made for my teenage niece. Monkeys are not the traditional Easter animal, however I love the fun image called Changito Chick by Stampendous! I colored the image with my Copic markers and used patterned paper from The Paper Studio. The Happy Easter sentiment is from the dollar bin from several years ago. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

Hop Along Bunny Easter Card


This afternoon I realized there is only 17 days until Easter and I have made zero cards for this holiday. Then I realized I only have 12 days to put them in the mail. That means I need to make a card every day to have enough for my family. No pressure! To get started, I made this Hop Along Bunny Easter Card using a digital image and sentiment by Meljen's Designs. I colored the image using my Copic markers. The patterned paper is from the Spring 6 x 6 collection by American Crafts. I love the green in this collection!!! (Is it crazy to go buy another paper stack to hoard away)??? There were several punches used on this card: bitty butterfly punch, scallop edge punch, scallop oval punch and the boho blossoms punch all by Stampin' Up!. I now have one Easter card with 11 more to go. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will stop by again soon!!!
