2nd batch of Easter Cards

1 Comment

Well goodness! I forgot to keep posting cards! Before I get to Mother’s Day cards I better post the rest of Easter 2020.

Easter Embossed Cross

I made this card for a couple customers that wanted a Christian themed Easter Card.
April Inspirational Card Challenge – embossing

Cardstock: Bazzill (white, Sunbeam, Heather, Pansy)
Embossing Folders: Darice (Cross with Script, Scroll Flourish Corner)
Accents/Tools: pop dots

Easter Embossed Cross - all three

After I made one for orders I decided to make some for my friends and family. So I made them in three colors that I felt fit the receiver.

Cardstock: Bazzill (white, Limeade, Blossom, Flamingo, Blue Oasis, Tropical)
Embossing Folders: Darice (Cross with Script, Scroll Flourish Corner)
Accents/Tools: pop dots

Coloring Eggs - outside
Coloring Eggs - inside

As I was working on Easter Cards I saw this photo journaling card and got to thinking about how I could turn into a Easter Card. I came up with the ideal to add the dots and the rest of the sentiment. I had my friend make it sound good and this was the finished product. I came up with this ideal because I like the fun part of Easter but also remember that Jesus is the reason for Easter. I sent this to my new adopted Niece and Nephews and they loved it!

April Inspirational Card Challenge – Inspirational Photo – I went with the Easter theme and the eggs.

Used Create with Connie & Mary Sketch #602 for my inspiration.

Cardstock: Bazzill (Blue Oasis)
Patterned Paper and Journaling Photo Card: Doodlebug (Bunnyville)
Accents/Tools: pop dots, Queen & Co pink dots

Easter Chic on Eggs

One of the ladies wanted a card for her dad that is into gardening and native Nebraska flowers. So I learned that the daisy is a native Nebraska flower! So I added the flowers to the journaling photo card and then used Sketch #594 at Cards with Connie & Mary (I flipped it).

I made two cards so I decided to give one to my friend Dale.

April Inspirational Card Challenge – Product – patterned paper.

Cardstock: Bazzill (Blue Oasis, American Poppy, Intense Kiwi)
Patterned Paper and photo card: Doodlebug (Bunnyville)
Accents/Tools: Doodlebug Sprinkles (spring), SVG daisy cut file

Happy Easter Egg

So I make cards for a guy at work and then I also make cards for his mother. I made Easter cards for the mother to give to her friends and son (watercolor paper cross card). Then I made this card for the son to give to his mother (parents). She wrote me today and said she loved it! The mom likes flowers so when I saw the journaling photo card I knew to pair it with this bright happy flower paper! I cut down the journaling card and put the dotted frame around it. I used Create with Connie & Mary Sketch #598 as my inspiration. I used a flower punch to add to the strip below the egg. Because some of the journaling photo cards are big I bought 6 1/4 x 6 1/4 envelopes so this card is 6 x 6. It’s big but not too big.

I made 2 of these and sent one of these to my Aunt Barb! Happy Mail!!

He is Risen - all three

I needed a card for a lady to give her son. So he got the green/yellow one since that was more manly. I used an older image from Clearly Digi Stamps (no longer in business). Since I’m not good with inks and watercolor I used paper that was already done for me!!

Daisy pinstripe

I made this card for a birthday girl that likes purple and flowers. It’s a shade of purple and I think she will like it. I saw this image over at Miss Kate Cuttables and thought it would be perfect with the sketch on the Inspirational Card Challenge at Scrapbook.com. And this is what I came up with!

Daisy Hello

So I found a Swap thread called Angel Swap. It’s not a normal swap because you swap names of someone that could use “happy mail/encouragement” in their mailbox (like an elderly friend/relative, or friend/relative going through rough time, someone sick, etc) . Then you get a name and make that person a card. At first I thought “well I should just be making the person a card instead of some stranger” but God prompted me to play this month. This month was a little different as we sent cards to the other “angels” instead of someone we nominated. And it was funny because I got Ro and she got me!! So this card was sent to Ro because she loves daisies! I saw this trim at Hobby Lobby and thought of her and Sketch #1 of the August Card Sketch Challenge and thought they would work well together.

I also made 2 cards for sketch #1 (August Card Sketch Challenge). This was the 2nd ideal that came to me when I saw the trim!!

Cowgirl flowers


Daisy Cowboy Boots

One of the girls at work has had me make cards for her husband, family, friends, etc. So when her husband contacted me asking me to make her a birthday card I thought that was so sweet. He told me Gerber Daisies, horses, and cowgirl stuff were her favorite. I also knew that purple was her favorite color so this is what I came up with. I used Home on the Range and Bouquet of Daisies from Diane’s Daydream Designs. My husband merged the two items in photoshop for me. I colored the flowers in photoshop (just using the paint bucket because I have NO photoshop skills!! That is why I have to bat my eyelashes at my husband when I need photoshop help!!) and then used the pre-colored digital image for the boots. I can’t remember what sketch I used because I have been organizing them so they have all been rearranged…but if I figure it out I will add it.

Samples for Scrapbook.com challenges


So I’m hosting 2 card challenges at Scrapbook.com this month for Karen who is going on VACATION for the WHOLE month (sooo jealous!!). She is amazing and usually has all the challenges done and post them as samples. Well, I’m not that good so I will play along with everyone else this month. But here are 3 samples I did get done so far.

Daisy Happy Birthday

I originally planned on using this beautiful bouquet daisy digital stamp from Diane’s Daydream Designs for one of the May challenges but I just couldn’t get the card to work. So I saw this sketch and tried it which I’m so glad I did because I LOVE IT!!


1) June Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Sketch # 2 – Originally came from Scrappy Sketches #35-13

2) Seize the Birthday Challenge – Make a birthday card and use the topping if you want (optional) – Tags. I chose not to do the topping unless you count the “Happy Birthday” saying as a tag.



Happy Birthday

to a lovely young woman;

full of grace, beauty,

spirit and fire.

I made this card for a guy at church who wanted it for his Granddaughter’s 17 or 18th birthday (He wasn’t sure but it was one of those). She likes horses so I thought Carousel Horse 1 from Doodle Pantry was perfect.


1) June Card Sketches @ Scrapbook.com – Sketch #5 – Originally from Tuesday Morning Sketches #217

2) Seize the Birthday Challenge – Make a birthday card and use the topping if you want (optional) – Tags. I chose not to do the topping.

Panda with Balloons

When I saw May Digi of the Month, It’s Not a Tie,  at Deedee’s Digi I knew that I tie wouldn’t work for my father-in-law so I got to thinking! I kept seeing the Panda holding balloons so I wrote Deedee and asked permission to remove the tie from his hand. Deedee agreed that my wonderful husband could work his magic in Adobe and take the tie away. I still wasn’t sure what it was going to look like except I wanted balloons. Well, the inspiration photo this month for the June Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com inspired this card. The photo is a little girl in a red polka dot dress holding a bouquet of red balloons. I embossed the red paper with dots to get the feel of the red polka dot dress. I dragged out an older sketch, The deconstructed Sketch #46, for this card.


1) June Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Photo Inspiration Category – use the photo as your inspiration

Clear Dollar Stamps June 2011 Digital Stamp Release


Garden of Life Digital Stamps

Woo hoo!! It’s digital stamp release day at Clear Dollar Stamps!  Once I became a designed team member I learned I’m not as patient as I thought as was!! I have been dying to show all my friends in blog land these cools images that I got to play with.  The first one I got to play with was the Colored Garden of Life stamps. The cool thing about these is that they come with matching paper and the images are already colored for you so all you have to do is print them out and get to playing!! This card was so easy and fun to make! The main flower was cut out and pop dotted on to give it dimension. The design was based on 2008 Page Maps card sketch.

Check out the other Design Team Members that used the Colored and Non-colored Garden of Life Stamps:

Flower of the Month – April – Daisy

When I first saw this stamp I knew I wanted to make it into a wedding card for my Father-in-law that got married last week. Unfortunately I didn’t get it done in time so I guess some other lucky bride and groom will get this card! I love that I don’t always have to follow exactly what a Stamps was made for….taking April’s Flower and turning it into a wedding card! How cool is that?! Just think of all the different types of cards you can make with ONE stamp. Plus, it is a digital stamp so you can make it any size you want! Got to love it!
