Easter Cards

1 Comment

Had to make some Easter Cards for a lady at the Retirement Home. So I made these for her to pick from.

Easter - One Cute Chick

I pulled out my stack of papers and found several journal card sheets. This was a journal card with more white above the chicks. I cut it off then turned it over to find the awesome orange and used it as the top of bottom. Worked perfectly for Sketch #5 of the March 2019 Card Sketch Challenge. It also fits the Spring theme of the March Inspirational Card challenge.

Supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill (African Daisy, Sour apple)
Patterned Paper: Echo Park (Celebrate Easter – 4 x 6 journaling cards)
Accents/Tools: scor-tape, Gingham ribbon, glue dots

Easter - Bunny has Chocolate

I made several cards up for a lady that wanted Easter cards. I used my supplies on hand and used up some journaling cards. Which worked out perfectly as that was the Product Category at the Inspirational Card Challenge on Scrapbook.com. I couldn’t use the big journaling card the way it was because the message didn’t fit. So I pulled out my handy dandy Cricut and made a new bracket shape and printed the saying on there. I cut out the rabbit from another journaling card as I thought he was perfect for this.

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (Petunia, African Daisy, Kachina)
Journaling Cards: Echo Park (Celebrate Easter Collection 3 x 4 and 4 x 6)
Accents/Tools: Cricut, Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge, EK Success 1/16 pop dots, Cutter Bee scissors

Easter - Easter Egg

Another Easter Card using up Journaling Cards which was the Product for the March 2019 Inspirational Card Challenge on Scrapbook.com. I cut out the center of the big journaling card and used it for another card. I then cut the egg out of the smaller journaling card and pop dotted it in the center of the frame.

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (African Daisy, Kachina, Intense Orange)
Journaling Cards: Echo Park (Celebrate Easter Collection 3 x 4 and 4 x 6)
Accents/Tools: EK Success 1/16 pop dots, Cutter Bee scissors, Rectangle die,

Easter - Easter words

Another Easter Card using up Journaling Cards which was the Product for the March 2019 Inspirational Card Challenge on Scrapbook.com. I cut out the eggs from the large journaling card and then used a small journaling card that had all the Easter words on it. I paired them with some bright paper that reminded me of what would be on Easter eggs!

SUPPLIES:

Easter - Hippty Hoppity

Last Easter Card!! This one is for March 2019 Inspirational Card Challenge – theme – Lawn and Garden. This journaling card has the bunny standing in a yard with a tree and flowers. I decided to use the inside of another journaling card I cut out and it covered up the tree which I was okay with. Once the banner was on there only one flower was showing so I cut out some flowers from some paper and pop dotted them. I added a cloud since I covered up some.

An ornery Easter

Happy Easter Bunny

So I saw this image at Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps and he just made me smile in all his plaid and polka dot combination! So I wanted to use him but didn’t have anything in mind at the time. Well, a friend of mine, Dale, was in the hospital last month with heart issues. I wanted to make him a get well card but nothing came to mind. He is already home now so I thought maybe I will just make an Easter Card and I remembered this image. Then I made my girlfriend’s card (see post before this one) and took the saying I put on hers and changed it to fit Dale:

Hoping your Easter world
is bright and colorful,
weird and crazy,
ornery and special…

…just like you.

I decided it fit my brother too so I hit him a card also!

I used sketch #6 at the Cardmakers Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com (the original sketch is from i {heart} sketches #120).

  1. Cardmakers Card Challenge #6 – use the sketch as inspiration
  2. March Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Photo inspiration category #1

So I found Gerda Steiner Designs while looking for examples of pig stamps out there since that was the theme I chose for the March Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com. She has clear, rubber and digital stamps so something for everyone. While looking around on her site I found the monthly challenge… which I love monthly challenges. A digi stamp is posted each month and you have to make a project using it. Then you will get next months stamp FREE!! So I decided to “hop” in this month (pun intended) and purchase this cute rabbit so I could play along. I thought he would make a cute Easter card and he did. I sent it to my best friend in Kansas City as I’m still trying to send her a card a month.

The images only come in outline so I had to bat my eyelashes at my husband and ask really nice to color this up for me in Photoshop. He did and somehow always knows what colors to use. I just happen to have the perfect doodlebug paper from YEARS ago that matched it.

I used sketch #2 that was posted on the March Card Sketch Challenge (Kathy101) @ Scrapbook.com. It doesn’t say where the original sketch came from. I didn’t follow it exact but you can see the sketch…that’s what I love about sketches…they start your creativity but you aren’t bound to stick to the exact sketch.

CHALLENGES:

  1. Gerda Steiner Designs Monthly Challenge – March – Use the digital image to make a project and next month’s image will be free!
  2. March Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – I used sketch #2.
  3. March Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Photo Inspiration #1 Category.

SUPPLIES:

Digital Image: Carrot Bunny @ Gerda Steiner Designs

Cardstock: Bazzill (Bubblegum, Raven)

Patterned Paper: Doodlebug

Inks: digital stamp colored in Photoshop by my awesome husband and printed on Canon Inkjet Printer

Accents/Tools: Michael’s dots, Cricut, Basic George Cricut Cartridge

I do monthly crafts at a retirement home and we made these last year for Easter.  (I forgot to post that I made them)

TP Easter Bunny

I found them on Pinterest 

They are made out of Toilet Paper rolls and paper! You can fill them with candy to give a nice decorative treat to somebody for Easter!
