Have A Blessed Easter!


Today, I’m sharing an Easter card using Three Pane Easter – M043 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Blessed Easter Greetings – G151 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Happy Easter to family, friends and everyone!

To make my card this week, I started with Craft Smart Card Paper pre-made to 5.5″ x 4.25″. I stamped the images and sentiment using MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Using my Brother Scan and Cut, I cut out each of the images. My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Die Layers and my Cuttlebug were used to die cut the sentiment and Craft Sparkling Stickers – Purple (02-3068629) paper.

The main images were coloured in with Copic Markers. The background papers were all from Your Next Stamp – Happy Spring (6″x6″) paper pad. I cut each section at 4″ x 1.5″ and then inked around all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet. The sentiment was inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber.

To assemble the card, using glue, I attached the 3 background papers onto the base card. Crafts ribbon was attached using double-sided tape. The images, sentiment and sentiment background were attached to the background papers using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Lastly, to finish off the card, I cut 3 Easter eggs out of some watercolour paper that I had used various Cosmic Shimmer colours on previously. I inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet and glued them directly to the background paper.

Easter Gnome!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Easter Delivery Gnome from the new March release. This Easter gnome is collecting coloured eggs for the Easter Bunny to hand out to all of the little children. This stamp comes with 2 more sentiments as well as the one shown here on my card. “Easter Blessings” and “some bunny loves you”.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word. I sized both the image and sentiment to fit 5.5″ x 4.25″ and printed everything out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and my cutter to cut around the sentiment and scissors to round the corners. The image and sentiment were coloured in with Copic markers.

For the base card, Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper was used at the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I die cut the base to be same size using Your Next Stamp – Happy Spring paper and used double-sided tape to attach it directly to the base card. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough was used to ink around the edges. Hot Buy – Recollections – Jewel Tones was cut to 5.5″ x 3″ and glued on top of the patterned paper. Lastly, I had some watercolour paper that I had created a pattern on using some inks, a roller and Gel plate from a class a few years back. I though it went great with the colour scheme and almost look like a wood pattern. This was cut to 5.5″ x 2.5″ and glued on top of the Purple paper. To complete the card, I attached both the sentiment and image using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and added a few Your Next Stamp Gumdrops.
