Getting Ready for Easter

I am still busy making cards for the Belmont Nursing Home residents. I am making 130 cards for Easter. It is my way to “Pay it Forward” for the wonderful care they provided my mother during her stay there. I try to make an unique card for each person so I always vary them.

Card 1 – I used Spring Bunnies by Hambo. I coloured the bunnies with Copic markers, then layered the image using various papers from my stash. I entered this card into Animal Friends Challenge#23 Easter (Image must have animal)

Card 2 – Welcomes Spring using this adorable lamb stamp by Daydream Designs called Spring Sheep. I coloured the image with Copic Markers and colour blocked it on fun flowered paper. I entered this card into Card Mania # 66 Spring

Card 3 – I love this adorable bunny and little girl called Bunny Hello by From the Heart Stamps. I coloured the image with my Copic markers, and layered it on papers from my stash. I entered this card into Crafts Galore Encore - It’s March and Anything Goes!

Card 4 is a fun little chick called Flowerpot Chick by From the Heart Stamps. I coloured this little bird with Copic markers anf layered him on papers from my stash.

Cards 5 & 6 were made used version Card-I-O Majestic Peg Stamps. For the first card, I cut out a stencil using the Cheery Lynn Egg Nesting dies. I set the insert aside. I placed the “egg shaped stencil over a piece of Neenah Solar White 4.25×5.5 paper. I stamped the flowers and leaves. Before removing the stencil, I inked the inside edge using Broken China distress ink. I layered it on the dotted paper, added a sentiment and two butterflies. For the second card, I stamped the insert. I inked the edges, then layered it on an embossed card stock. I added a sentiment and two punched butterflies. I entered Card 5 into Natalie and Amy’s Challenge – Flowers and Darlene’s March Challenge: Stencils
