Happy Easter!

Hidden the eggs for Easter was the idea for this Card.
 I stamp the tree image on Season of Friendship Stamp Set with the Early Espresso Write Maker and then cut it out.  Using dimensionals I attach the tree to a 5 x 3 ¾” piece of Whisper White CS. The leaves were stamp using the Write Maker colors Old olive and Wild Wasabi. I use the Itty Bitty shape Punch to punch out some flowers and then I run the flowers through the Big Shot with the Lattice Square EB to give them some texture. Using the egg image on the Easter Blossoms set, I stamp and cut out some in different colors. I make the fence by scoring and cutting a 3 ¾” x ¾” piece of Pear Pizzazz CS. The Mat is a Rose Red 5 ¼” X 4 piece of CS. The Happy Easter sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Whishes Stamp Set completes the card.

Easter Basket

     Here we have another goody for Easter. A Basket fills with candy, great for Easter Treats.
The basket was made with the Scallop Envelope Bigz Die. I give it some texture with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. For the adornments I use a little chick punch art, grass, eggs and a sentiment. The eggs were made with White Embossing Powder I use the Easter Blossoms Stamp Set. The handle for the basket was a strip of ½” x 11” attach with brads.

                       I have a quick creation to share with you today.
 It is a combination of circles and punch colors; DSP Springtime Vintage with Marina Mist and Pretty in Pink. I make the flowers punching out shapes with the Itty Bitty and Boho Blossoms Punch.  With the Polka Dots embossing folder I give to the card some texture.

I covered with Designer Series Paper Neutrals using Liquid Glue.

Here is the Metal Board with the ribbon for hanging.

I put together some magnets using another great find and Crystal Effects.
