Hello Crafty Friends,

It is the day before Easter and I am so excited to share with you my Easter Egg Carton.   If you have been watching my Instagram page, I did a few sneak peeks of what I was working on.  Now I can reveal the finished product.

I had so much fun creating each egg.  The base of each egg is a plastic egg.
Here are the details:
The green egg is wrapped with Lemon Grass Thread.
The middle egg in the back is decorated with Mother Nature Color Me Washi Tape.  I then colored the tape with Color Splash Pencils and added water to blend the colors.
The mint green egg in the back and the pink egg in the front, was painted with Cool Pool Acrylic Paint and a mix of Sweet Berry and Butter Cream.    I then speckled the outside with Black Licorice Silk.
The two eggs in the front corners was made with squares of Spring Filled Pattern Paper.  I placed White Liner tape on the back of each square.
I then added some Butter Cream cardstock, that I cut with Fringe Shears, for grass.

Have a great Easter!!!

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today I want to share a fun and cute Easter Card.
I love bunnies at this time of year.  Of course, bunnies are popular for Easter, but to me they are a sign of spring and of new life.

To create the bunny, I first stamped the bunny on the Whip Cream Cardstock, to keep his whiskers.  I then stamped the bunny on Banana Cream, for the color of the bunny.  I then embossed the ears with White Embossing powder on Bubble Gum Cardstock.  Lastly, I stamped the bow tie on Pool Play Cardstock.  I then pieced everything together.

I love the little bunny and I love the the saying that comes with it.  I think it makes a very cute Easter card!

Supplies Used:
Stamp: All Ears
Paper: Banana Cream Cardstock, Pool Play Cardstock, Bubble Gum Cardstock, Whip Cream Cardstock, Spring Filled Patter Paper.
Ink: Black Licorice, Clear Pigment
Dies: Border Basics, Journey Ovals
Accessories: Whip Cream Thread, Fun Day Elements

Hello Crafty Friends,

Don't you just love the season.  I love to see all the pastel colors, with chicks and bunnies, etc.  Kids love to hunt for eggs and today the card I have to share is about eggs and egg hunts.

I created the glittery eggs by adding a piece of White Liner Sheets to the Cool Pool egg.  I then added strips of white liner tape to the Pretty Amethyst egg.  I then rubbed Journey Sparkle Dust over the top.
You now have glittery eggs for a fun Easter egg hunt!

Supplies Used:
Stamp: Storybook Occasions
Paper: Whip Cream Cardstock, Pretty Amethyst Cardstock, Cool Pool Cardstock, Spring Filled Prints, White Liner Sheets
Ink: Black Licorice
Accessories: Journey Sparkle Dust, Whip Cream Thread, Rainbow Drops

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today, is a new week, so you know that means a new layout in my planner.

This week is Easter and Holy Week, so I wanted to do something to celebrate this event.

I used the Color Cross stamp and used the die cut negative to the die that matches to create the purple cross. I colored the red cross with the Color Splash pencils.  I then "flicked" some of the red pencil onto the rest of the page.  I colored the purple cross with PanPastel.  I also stamped some verses from the Color Cross stamp set that were appropriate for Easter.

I hope you have a great Easter week.

Supplies Used:
Stamp: Color Cross
Ink: Black Licorice
Dies: Color Cross
Colored with Color Splash Pencils and Pan Pastels.

The sentiment is from Annual Celebration, which a must have set for all year long.
