A colony of Easter Bunnies!

Digi images from Digistamp Boutique

Bunny rabbits galore!

Felt inspired to make some Easter cards – with enough time to get them posted before Easter!
I love these bunny images. They are coloured with promarkers, then I tried to make each one different – because that’s much more fun than making 6 all the same.

Easter card

This is my favourite – and it’s made only using paper. I took a lilac polka dot card blank, added a scrap of pink polka dot card and a scalloped circle cut on the BigShot. I embossed the circle to make that dotty too and to add a bit of texture.

The flowers and butterflies are cut using a hand punch. I drew freehand on them with a fine sharpie pen, and added colour with the promarkers. The flower stalks are just green card strips, drawn on with the fineline sharpie. The flower pots are also drawn freehand and cut out. I wrote the greeting by hand too.

Easter card 2

This is my other favourite, and it used up lots of ribbon scraps which is a bonus! I don’t know where the butterfly came from – I found it in the box of potentially useful bits and bobs which gets bigger and bigger by the day! The greeting is hand stamped.

I hope you like my cards, and I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you a happy Easter – hopefully there will be (chocolate) bunnies waiting for you on Easter morning.

30 days of creativity – day 14 – a wedding card

 youngloveIt’s that time of year – wedding season!

I love this stamp from Lili of the Valley – the two children remind me of my daughter and her best friend.

I coloured the image with promarkers, and drew faux stitching around the edges. I couldn’t resist adding the paper doily as a lacy background. The bunting is also stamped and hand coloured.

The words are hand stamped, and I love these tiny wooden heart buttons.

Relax… it’s mother’s day! (soon!)

mumbathEvery mum knows that the key to happiness is an undisturbed dip in the bath – glass of wine in hand makes it even better!

This is the card I have sent to my own mum, I know she was so happy when we finally got a lock on the bathroom door!

The image is from jellypark and I have coloured it with promarkers. I think the papers are from Dovecraft, and the ribbons are from my ribbon drawer!

Linking up with the jellypark challenge blog for this month’s challenge.

30 days of creativity – day 4 – Christmas cards

Today I took some time to colour up a new image which I want to use for some Christmas card designs. It’s a very cute digi which I bought from http://www.jellypark.co.uk . I only just found this site and I love it already!

I decided this image would be great for grandparents. I made three cards altogether, one coloured as two girls, one with two boys and finally a card with a boy and a girl making the snowman.

I embellished it with a circular sentiment (also from jellypark), some ribbon and some little snowflakes. It also got a sprinkle of glitter because a Christmas card needs glitter!

30 days of creativity – day 2 – christmas stockings!

badgirlstockingseditI’ve been thinking about Christmas – yes, I know it’s still august, but these things creep up on you!

So, I did a doodle (oo-er!) and coloured it in. I’m not sure if it will make it onto a card, but I like it!!

(30 days of creativity simply means spending 30 minutes doing something creative for thirty days. They don’t have to be consecutive days. Why don’t you join in?)

For a Grandad

I’ve made this card with a lovely freebie digi stamp from Birdie Brown – and I’d like to enter it into her November challenge.

I coloured the image with promarkers, and the background paper is from Dovecraft. The words are hand written.

I think it makes a really sweet Grandfather card – if your grandfather is a sweet, little, old man!
