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.

Home sweet home

 

To start this post we need to see a picture of my house…

home

Here it is, a 1935 house with a bay window and a drainpipe in desperate need of re-painting.

Last night I had a mad creative moment and decided I wanted to make a picture of our house. I grabbed a box of scrap paper – I keep all the offcuts from my card making – and started to cut bits out.

And this is what I made.

Our house

It’s all a bit wobbly, and our house isn’t actually floral or spotty (which is rather a shame!) I outlined the shapes with a fineline marker pen, and added a kiddy style sunshine. I love it!
