Today I would like to share a foursome of Easter cards that I created for Sunday's dinner guests. They don't visit my blog, so I figured it was safe. The whole idea came from this digital paper that I fell in love with.
If you look on my sidebar, My Stamp TV Gallery was spotlighted by the STV Talent Scout. If you click on my badge, you can see some of my cards I have done for their challenges. I was shocked to receive this honor. I would also like to wish my DS a very Happy Birthday, today! Enjoy!

First let me say that the bags and ribbon were both from Michaels. I had this adorable label in my digi stash and it says it is from MC [squared] Designs. I used cellophane card bags to hold my Peeps, since they seal real tight. I like hard Peeps, but I don't think everyone does. I turned the bags sideways and stapled on the labels after I printed them 6" wide, scored and folded. I used a hole punch, lined up the top of the label with the top of the bag and punched through all three layers, pulled through the spring colored ribbon and tied a bow. I wish I could link the topper for you but I can't find it. Anyway, This was easy-peasy.
Thanks for taking a look. I need to get back to my task at hand and keep looking for a gown for my DD's wedding. I only have a few weeks as they say they need 5 months to order. That gives me until May 15th. Ugh! Sorry, but I am not a dress person. My head is spinning! Time is flying now! Throw in Easter and all the cooking, and I lose more time. I am very happy to cook this year though, my DD is hosting the family event, and she is cooking some of it. It should be wonderful.

I have a tag template sheet from Hot Off The Press, that needed to see some love. It has all shapes and sizes. I have had it for years and call on it's assistance every now and then. After choosing my size, I found a fun digi paper that had the feel I was looking for. I cut the tag and stamped some of the new HCPC3374 Flora Grande 2 PreCut Set images from Heartfelt Creations. I colored them with pastel Copics and then distressed the edges of my tag with Vintage Photo DI. My sentiment is an unmounted and I am sorry, but I do not know from who. The bunny is also a digi image that I cut out and half popped up for dimension.
The embellishments are very fine satin ribbon, and Easter egg charm on a jump ring to dangle, and pearly blue buttons. I just love how vintage it came out!
Thanks for taking a peek. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

Next I decided I needed a Spellbinders die to add next to the embossing. I chose Labels Seventeen, which was also new. I added different leaves from the HCPC2252 Stems and Leaves, Pre-Cut set by Heartfelt Creations. The inks are Spanish Olive VersaMagic and Certainly Celery from SU! That formed a great background to pop an image from. I decided on the bluebird from Heartfelt's HCPC641 Bluebird with Flowers set. This was also colored with Copics and fussy cut. I added a happy birthday tag, brad, pearl, and some pink gingham ribbon. The base of my card is Creme De Menthe, Pure Luxury card stock from Gina K. Designs. That used 4 of my new scores from the show!
This card will also be entered in the Create With Bubbe Birthday Challenge. I think she must be getting tired of loading my cards, lol!

I used a white base card, Pure Luxury card stock and a bright digi paper I found lurking on my computer. I even broke out some old school stickers! Parts of the monster and his beer glass are all coated in Crystal Effects, and he was colored with Copic markers. The inside is a simple happy birthday, some leftover strips from the front and a trio of beer bottle stickers from Sticko. Ugh, so many leftover scrapbook goodies! This card will also be entered in the Create With Bubbe Birthday Challenge.

This is quite the combination of items! The biggest of them is my new SU! Blossom Petals punch and the stamp set that goes with it, called Build A Blossom. I did not realize what a huge flower this would create! I found a blue gingham dp and card stock in my stash. Decided to stamp the petals on the gingham with black. When I stamped the center, I colored it with Copics and did the cracked ice technique on it before popping it up. I added the lacy corner dies from Heartfelt Creations, Decorative Butterfly Border Dies set. My sentiment circle is placed on an EKSuccess punch. For accents I used sheer polka dot ribbon, and pearls. I would like to enter this card in the Birthday Sundaes challenge #3 Anything Goes, that Janice M. tipped me off to! Thanks, Janice!
