Easter's On It's Way!

Hippity Hoppity Easter's on it's way! Are you ready? 
I almost am and to prove it, I have 2 Easter cards to share with you today.

I created this first card for this week's color challenge at the Drunken Stampers Blog.  DRS Designs is their sponsor this week and we want to see what you can do with the colors teal, purple, and orange!  You could win a $10 store voucher to DRS Designs just for playing along. 

I used Copic Markers to color the Butterfly on Eggs (533L) image.  Since this is an Easter card, I decided to use the pastel version of the challenge colors.  I really like the soft look.  I created a tag using the One Line Happy Easter sentiment (665B) but split it up so that the 2 words were on top of one another to fit on the tag.  I created the background by stamping the Interlocking Flower Background (813H) and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.   A few teal brads finished this Easter card off nicely.


I took a break from playing with DRS Designs new Easter images on this second card and brought out an oldie but goodie, you might say! This Praying Bunny image (407L) is one of my favorite stamps from DRS Designs.  I colored it with Copic Markers and used the masking technique to sponge blue ink around the image creating the sky. Every now and again I'd ink blue around a small portion of a scalloped circle to shade in clouds. Next, I stamped the God's Love Easter Greeting (974F) in the empty space above the image. Then the image was cut out and layered using Nestabilites. I created the background by scoring lines in both diagonal directions on my Score Pal and then using a decorative corner punch on all 4 corners. A olive green cardstock base was created measuring 5" x 4.5," and I used 4 yellow brads and an olive grosgrain bow as the only embellishments.

Easter is about 42 days away. If you need some inspiration to get your Easter cards completed, make sure to take a look at all of DRS Designs great Easter stamps HERE. I know you won't be disappointed and you're bound to find something you love!

Happy shopping and Happy stamping to you!
