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.

Complicated cards

Call me boring but I like making nice, square cards.

So when my mother-in-law gave me a packet of shutter card blanks from here, I have to admit not knowing where to start!

Anyway, I decided to go Christmassy and made this…

The penguins are a digi stamp image from DigiStamp Boutique, which I have coloured with promarkers and mounted onto silver card. The papers are from Dovecraft’s 2012 collection.

Anyway, encouraged by the success of the complicated Christmas card I decided to try using another blank for a commissioned baptism card…

The words are printed on the computer, then I embellished the card with shiny gems and ribbons. This card took me ages and I had to abandon it halfway through as I hit a brick wall of inspiration! I’m glad I persevered though as I do like the finished article.
