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:

Accents/Tools: EK Success 1/16 pop dots, Cutter Bee scissors,

Easter - Happy Easter

Another Easter Card using up Journaling Cards which was the Product for the March 2019 Inspirational Card Challenge on Scrapbook.com. I cut close around the design so I could mat it.

Sketch: Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #309

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (African Daisy, Kachina, Petunia)
Journaling Cards: Echo Park (Celebrate Easter Collection 3 x 4)
Patterned Paper: Echo Park (Celebrate Easter – Jelly Beans)
Accents/Tools: rick rack ribbon, flower, jewel, Gina Marie Dies,

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.

Sketch: turned on its side. MOJO Monday 475

Grandpa Gold in his heart

A lady requested this quote for her grandpa’s birthday. It was a good thing that my local scrapbook store found some very old BasicGrey papers in their storage room. They had one sheet of this so I picked it up along with some others. Good thing I did because it was perfect for this saying….at least I thought so!
I used Freshly Made Sketches 276 as my inspiration.

Dad Birthday

Three different cards from one digital image

Birthday Flowers v1

I had a request for a birthday card for a lady that loves flowers and lives in Florida. I sent the customer some images and she liked Fred, She Said Designs – watercolor floral corner stamp.

So I found 2 cards and a sketch that inspired me so I decided to make all three and let her pick which one she wanted. Which also fit the Oct Inspirational Card Challenge – Bonus category which was to make at least 2 different cards with the same image….I made 3. I also used one of the sketches from Jillibean Soup’s Blog that they had posted for World Card Making Day. I didn’t use any Jillibean Soup product so I won’t enter it into the challenge but it still inspired my card!

*Note: this image was water colored by the artist and sold as a pre-colored digi! Which is great for us who can’t color well at all!!*

Out of the three cards she picked this one!

Digital Image: Watercoloured Doodled Floral Corner with Butterflies @ Fred, She Said Designs.

Here is the 2nd card I made using the same digital image.  I used this card Yana Smakula’s blog for my inspiration. I don’t stamp so I printed and cut out the digital image and adhered it with the xyron 510.

Cabin with chair

Cabin with chair

I had an order for a lady that works in NY but has a cabin she lives in when not working. She loves to go to cabin and enjoy nature. So when I found The Great Outdoors Kit (or cheaper version is Camping Kids) at Imagine That Digi Shop I knew it would be perfect. I added an extra tree to my scene. Pop dotted the fire wood stack, chair and the knobs sticking out on the actually cabin to make it feel more real. I still haven’t quiet figured out how to make my grass longer than the die without leaving that little mark…if you know the secret please do tell. The lady loved it and has it displayed on her work desk to reminder her of “cabin life”.

CHALLENGES:
1) Creative Link Up @ Imagine That Creative Playground – make a card and link it up. If you use an Imagine That Digi then you get the stamp of the month for free.
