Make and Take for Easter Blossoms

This was a make and take card from my Summer Mini Launch, earlier this year.  It was an almost exact copy from the Summer Mini Catalogue!  The Stampin’ Up! catalogues always inspire me 🙂

We used the stamp set Easter Blossoms with the colour combo Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Confetti Cream and Early Espresso.  Again, there was the ever-so-useful Newsprint DSP (I’m really go to miss this DSP when it retires – I hope it’s replaced with something VERY similar!!).  The lace is the delicately lovely Chantilly lace. 

Below is the insert that we stamped, even though it was summertime when we made the card, lol!

Thanks for looking 🙂

It’s Easter next weekend already!

Easter is only next weekend (although you’ve been able to buy hot cross buns in Coles since 1 January this year!).

These are a couple of the cards I have made to send to family and friends this year … it’s the first year I think I’ll be giving Easter cards to my family and friends, but when I can make them instead of buying them … it is all so much more affordable 🙂 And the effort spent making cards instead of searching for cards through crowds of shoppers is so much more enjoyable and satisfying!

Bunny Hugs

This card was made using Whisper White card stock and some Certainly Celery and Pretty in pink card stock. I love the simplicity and crispness of Whisper White cards. And I love my new markers … they are so much fun to play with (that’s how I did the pretty flowers)! I used Bunny Hugs and Simple Somethings stamp sets.

Bunny Hugs

Very similar in design to the above card, except using Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink and Mellow Moss card stock. I had to have fun with some paper piercing too, can’t help myself!

Which card do you prefer … see if you can post a comment (as I know sometimes it doesn’t work).

If you like the Bunny Hugs stamp set, which could be used for babies as well, then remember that it is in the Summer Mini Catalogue for only $33.95 and that ends at the end of March. So place your order with me before then or miss out on Bunny Hugs forever!
