Easter Wishes

Hello Friends,

I hope you are all enjoying your Easter holiday weekend!    Here are a couple of Easter cards to share with you.  All stamps and Dies are by Impression Obsession.....

These gorgeous Vintage Rose Eggs -B8994 were stamped with Tsukineko Versafine Black Onyx ink and clear embossed.  The roses and leaves were colored with Copics and covered with Rangers Glossy accents before being cut out.  They were popped into the Basket DIE039-T  that has been sponged with Memento Rose Bud. To finish the basket off it was embellished with  this sweet Large Bow DIE039-I and a sparkly button from the CTMH bling assortment.  Happy Easter B5542 was stamped and embossed with Versafine Black Onyx directly onto a Wilton Doily and the basket of eggs popped up over it.  I took the photo at an angle but when you look directly at it you can read the sentiment perfectly. The embossing folder is Sizzix Polka Dots and the corners are scraps of ribbon from Celebrate it. 

This is a quick and simple card made with the Bunny Back Medium C8127 stamp.   

The bunnies were stamped with Memento Dandelion, Rose Bud and Summer Sky.  Then using a glue pen and Rangers Distress Dry Rock Candy Glitter these little bunnies were sparkled up.  It looks like sugar over the bunnies which is just perfect for Easter!  It was popped up over Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon and a Spellbinders Romantic Rectangle.  A simple  but of grass using the Grass Border DIE060-I.

I am entering these card in the following challenges....

  5. El dahling, you make art that is so beautiful. Your Easter basket card is exquisite. The details are phenomenal. The multiple bunny card is simply delightful. There's Canadian Stamper that I've always wanted to wake up and become. Now my list is at 2 artisans I want to be when I grow up. AND they're both Canandian. Must be something in the water over there. Beautiful work, El. Hugs my friend. Now that both our schedules are somewhat normal, I'll call you. We need to catch up like yesterday. Over and out.

  6. Oh I love the basket with the doily and the cute bunny tails. These are both so adorable. I hope you had a great Easter!
