Hoppy Easter



Happy Easter!  I hope the Bunny was good to everyone!  We had a fun-filled day with family.  I had a busy pre-holiday week of prep and card making so I'm just finally getting around to blogging my creations.  My first card was for Kayne's day care provider.  I've used a cutie from Saturated Canary called Easter Dress.  She is colored with Copics and cut using Classic Circles Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  Papers are from the DCWV Luxury Stack.  I distressed the wrought iron fence (La-La-Land Crafts) with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  The corner die is from My Favorite Things, a Die-namics called Four Corners.  The Hoppy Easter sentiment is from A-Muse Stamps and is cut with Labels Fourteen Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  Some flowers, flower trim, and a Tim Holtz metal Timepiece with game  spinner finish off the card. 





Meljen's Designs' Bunny Love is up next.  This sweet image is colored with Copics and also cut using the Classic Circles Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  The grass was created with a Martha Stewart punch.  Sketch is courtesy of The Kraftyhands Challenge (April).  I used the Beaded Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinder) and added flat back adhesive pearls.  I've embellished with a Heart Banner (La-La-Land Crafts), pennant punch (Stampin' Up), flowers, ruffled trim, and filigree metal corner.  Papers are My Mind's Eye - Deena's Penny Lane. 



I have fallen in love with Stamps by Aurora Wings.  This darling little man is called Sleepy Bunny and I used him for my little man's card.  He's colored with Copics and fussy cut.  Kayne told me the blanket needed to be brown because his is.  Papers are My Mind's Eye - Lost & Find: Portobello Road.  I based my design on the current Sketch Saturday (#306).  I kept this one pretty simple with just a couple of metal clips (Stampin' Up).  The sentiment is also from Stampin' Up, a set called Something to Celebrate.  It's cut with the Fish Tail Flags Stax Die-namics (My Favorite Things).     







And finally, Easter Bunny Luka from La-La-Land Crafts.  This one was for my parents'.  Luka is another adorable munchkin who reminds me of Kayne.  I colored him up with my Copics and fussy cut him.  He's matted on a Classic Ovals Nestabilities (Spellbinders) which has been embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.  The papers are DCWV - The Blossom Song stack.  A punched lattice border (Martha Stewart), lace trim, flowers, and Tim Holtz metal ornate plate and metal corner are the finishing touches.   Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 (#11) provides the layout.

As you can see, I've been a bit busy.  But tonight I'll be unwinding with the season premiere of Devious Maids, my guilty pleasure!  Thanks for visiting!
