This year I am making a simple Easter Card. I will be using one stamp that is a oldie but goodie that I have had for awhile from a now retired Stampin’ Up! set called Festive Four, along with some patterned paper, solid pink cardstock and the finishing touches of ribbon and a bow.
I stamped the image with Rich Cocoa Memento dye ink, then colored with pastel colored Tombow markers and what is so cute is that they this pack of markers is called jelly bean. Oh well I used it for Easter eggs instead 🙂 Using these bright colors makes these eggs just as fun to decorate as if you were coloring real eggs and without the mess that usually goes along with egg coloring.
I can’t wait for Easter this year. I will be cooking for our family and I know it will be a day filled with lots of love & laughter.

Ever since I went to my local rubber stamp convention, I have so many new ideas for handmade cards. And the best part is that it is not costing any more money, since I have all the supplies. I am using all of the stamps that I have already owned but am using them in a totally different way. I went from just stamping on cardstock to making 3D images.
So here is a bunch of supplies that I have used to make this Easter Card. Rubber stamps from Stamps Happen Inc, and Stampabilities. Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Cutter Bee Scissors, Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page paper punch, Cardstock and alot of Copic Sketch Markers.
I also used my Cricut Expression machine to cut out the border grass from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge and also used the Pooh and Friends Cricut cartridge for the small patches of grass.
The template was used to cut (with X-Acto knife) small lines and then folded to make a 3-D platform. It took awhile to get the folds just right, but it was sure worth the effort.
It was so much fun coloring these stamped Easter eggs, then I cut them out and added them onto the card.
I almost forgot to tell you. I wanted the front of the Easter card to be really simple since the inside had all of the fun stuff . So all I did was stamped Happy Easter on the bottom corner and then I used some Easter egg ribbon from Bobbin Ribbon, that I wrapped around the card and made a bow on the front. That’s it really simple.
Look how cute this Easter card came out. This little chick is so adorable.
Happy Easter Everyone!
