Happy Easter!

Good morning and I hope your Easter Sunday is glorious!  Here is an Easter card for you.

easter egg in grass

The image was stamped with memento tuxedo black ink and colored with prisma pencils.  And embossing folder was used to add some nice texture for the frame, basic grey paper and may arts ribbon finish it off.

This image is from Creative Vision stamps – called Easter Egg in grass –  and can be found here.  You get two sizes of this stamp – this is the smaller of the two.

hopping into spring!

Oh it has been awhile since I last posted on this blog and I hope to be doing more this year.

This card with the cute bunny image works well not just for Easter, but for birthdays or any general “good wishes” card.  The image is from Creative Visions stamps – and what is wonderful about this company is that when you purchase this stamp (red rubber) it comes in two different sizes – this is the smaller of the two.  Sometimes you just need another size of a particular stamp!  You can find the stamp here.

The image was stamped with memento tuxedo black ink and colored with copic markers.  More to come on Sunday so check back then!

spring:  to rise leap or move; a season between winter and summer

It is that time of year where we come out from our winter blues, shed the heavy clothes and bask in the warm weather.  I love this time of year – especially in Florida where the plants are bursting with color and the humidity is still tolerable.  A time where we see the annual migration of different birds that come and feast on our backyard bird feeders (our little version of a birdy bed and breakfast!).   Our year round residents of cardinals, chickadees, doves and wrens are joined with yellow finches, indigo buntings and an occasional robin and oriole.  The bluebirds are checking our the birdhouses in their yearly voyage for a home to nest.

In spring we see the leaving of snowbirders as they head back north and the arrival of spring breakers searching for sun and sand.  It gives us March Madness (can my alma mater UCONN make it to the final four? I am hoping so) and the opening day of baseball (will the Mets still be in contention in May>….well, hope will only go so far!!)

So, I hope this spring finds you well with feelings of freshness and renewal.  Here is a little card I made to get you in the mood for spring.  It was colored with prisma pencils.

daffodil sneak peek

Here is a clean and simple card that offers a sneak peek of one of the sets to be released by Mark’s Finest Papers next week.  The set is called Daffodil Greetings and is perfect for spring.

I kept the card simple by stamping the main daffodil image in Memento London fog.  The butterfly was stamped in the same ink, colored with copics to match the cardstock then cut out and popped up on the main panel.

Spellbinders dies were used to cut the circles and a cuttlebug folder used for the embossing.  The sentiment is from an earlier MFP set.   The grey pearls in the corners were originally white but I used a copic marker in the “N” series to make it grey.

All the cardstock is from MFP.  Thanks for sto

dogwood spring

Here is another card made with an image from the lovely Dogwood Blossoms set from Mark’s Finest Papers.  The sentiment is from MFP’s Magnolia set.

 

The image was stamped in Memento  Black and colored with Prisma Pencils.  I used two shades of the same color on the blossoms and the leaves, starting with the darker color along the edge then blending the lighter color in over the darker.

The cardstock is all MFP, the patterned paper is from Basic Gray.  An  EK Success border punch was used and the ribbon is from my stash.

 

Thanks for stoppng by today.
