Here’s a cute Easter bunny card tutorial I made recently using stamps from Close to My Heart (large egg), Hero Arts (polka dot) and Some Odd Girl (all others).
-Cut in half a pink piece of 8 1/2″x11″ cardstock and fold for card base
-Cut a yellow polka-dot pattern paper to 5 1/2″x 1 3/4″ and cut tan cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 1 1/2″, adhere together and tie around with pink plaid ribbon, then adhere to card front
-On white cardstock stamp bunny, color with grey and pink markers (I used Spectrum Noir), apply snow pen or puffy white paint pen and heat with heat gun, cut out bunny
-Ink the large solid egg stamp with yellow ink and then press onto an un-inked large polka dot background stamp, this is called a kissing technique and it will transfer the background image onto the solid stamp.
-Stamp egg onto 2 1/2″x 2 1/2″ white cardstock, stamp grass in green at the bottom, adhere to a 2 3/4″x 2 3/4″ piece of tan cardstock and adhere to card front
-Adhere bunny using foam tape next to egg
-Stamp words in black on card front
I hope you enjoyed this quick Easter card tutorial. You can find this card and others of mine for sale over here in my Etsy Shop.
The current challenge at the Lawnscaping Challenge blog is dusting off supplies you haven’t used in awhile. For my card I got out some yellow flocking powder which I haven’t used in ages and also some decorative edged scissors, which I also just don’t pick up as much any more, even though I probably have 8-10 pairs. I used stamps from the Lawn Fawn “Happy Easter” set, adding flocking to the little chicks, now they’re yellow and fuzzy!
To make this card:
cut a piece of green cardstock in half and fold for the card base
trim a floral pattern paper to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to card front
trim white cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 1″, line up flowers, eggs and chicks stamps on one long clear block and stamp twice with black ink
color all images exept chicks with markers
using a glue pen add glue to chicks and cover with yellow flocking powder, lightly press down and then tap off excess, let dry
cut blue cardstock to 5 1/2″ and cut one long edge with decorative scalloped scissors, punch small holes in each scallop
adhere stamped piece to blue piece and adhere to card front
stamp sentiment in black on card front
Just wanted to share the birthday card I made for my Mom this year. She has an adorable grey kitty with white “socks” on her legs so they named her Boots, so I used a kitty with a gift stamp from C C Designs and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers to look like Boots. The stamp is actually in a Christmas set but using bright yellow and blue colors instead of red and green it’s a perfect birthday stamp too. I also added the banner stamp from Lawn Fawn.
The challenge over at the Lawnscaping blog is to make a card inspired by one of the design team members, I chose Audrey, I love her use of pattern papers, making cute scenes and she uses grass a lot, which I like to do too.
For my card I used the Critters at the Dog Park stamp set from Lawn Fawn, this cute little pooch is in love with the fire hydrant
