Spring and Easter

Spring Pebbles

Hello friends!

Easter may be over, but the rain showers we just had are a clear indicator that spring definitely isn’t over just yet!

Today I’m playing along with the Case This Sketch challenge and used the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge mood board as inspiration.

I’ve had the Simon Says Stamp Pebbles die on my wish list for a LONG time and snapped it up in their Christmas sale. Of course, it’s taken me AGES to actually use it!

Anyway, I loved Lisa Addesa’s inspiration and decided to use here technique of colouring an embossed version of the die. Rather than use pens, I chose my under-used Nuvo Jewel Drops which provide the prefect spring palette!

To finish of the card, I added a few Nuvo drops and a die from Mama Elephant.

Groovy Flower Egg

Hello there!

Another day, another Easter card! Today I’m playing along with an oldie but goodie! This egg die from Simon Says Stamp is a few years old now, but still one of my favourites!

I used a few of my new Gina K inks and the Color Throwdown colour palette (orange, yellow and blue) and one of my favourit techniques – inlaid die cutting.

The sentiment is by Poppystamps.

Framed Bunny

Happy Good Friday!

I don’t really create many cutesy cards… except at Easter time it seems! I guess I just can’t resist those sweet bunnies!

Today’s card uses dies from three companies – Memory Box (bunny), Lawn Fawn (eggs) and Simon Says Stamp (frame).

More Easter Cuties

Hello everyone!

I just can’t get enough of the Simon Says Stamp Peeking Bunny and Peeking Chick dies!

Here’s another quick Easter card that I created using the dies with a Clearly Besotted sentiment stamp.

Thanks to Shari Carroll for the inspiration!
