A special Easter wish



CHRIST IS RISEN!
HAPPY EASTER!


This is the Easter card that I gave to John. It is quite plain and simple, but, because he's got very little vision, anything fussy just isn't right.

The shape in the middle was cut from a card blank that would have been too small by itself, so that means I've got the other half to go on another card. The sentiment label is one that was part of a kit a couple of years ago. Just the addition of the resin flowers and the gold glitter strips and the card was done.

Green Easter


CHRIST IS RISEN!
HAPPY EASTER!

This card uses some Forever Friends patterned paper, some lovely flowers from Create and Craft and 3D strips of butterflies etc from Hobby Craft. It's also 'green' Easter because it features some recycling - the piece of patterned card that has been stamped and embossed in white with the Docrafts Happy Easter stamp was rescued and upcycled from the packaging that some prima flowers came in.

Sunflowers to brighten up a dull spring


I don't know what it's like where you are, but it's not very spring-like here - still very cold, which is why I'm staying in today!

I distressed the fancy edges of the card blank with mustard seen distress ink. The background paper and that used for the inside of the card are K & Co.

The sunflower 3D stickers are from stash.

Tutti frutti Happy Easter


Another card using the front of a shaped card on to a plain card blank with the addition of nestie cut labels using Craftwork Cards tutti frutti card and paper, stamping the Easter sentiment directly on to the tutti frutti paper, which meant I had to emboss it because it was staying wet and I was too impatient to wait for it to dry!

I'm showing a lot of Easter cards that I made and sold for charity recently that I hadn't got round to blogging.

Embossed Easter


For this card I used an embossing folder with my eBosser - the beauty of this is that I could open out the card blank and emboss on the front without any danger of getting lines I didn't want - so good to have an A4 area to work with. The sentiment grosgrain ribbon was from Hobby Craft and the eggs from Poundland a couple of years ago.

Birthday wishes


A CAS card using the front of a ready scalloped card blank (I'm a thrifty crafter so I quite often split a card like this so that I can get two cards out of the one card blank). The flowers are a mixture of some from Create and Craft and some Prima and the sentiment is an old one from stash.

Candlelight carol


This is my second card for my CHNC challenge 118, which is to base your Christmas card on a carol or song. Once again, I've used paper from the Authentique 'peaceful' collection, stamping directly on to it and colouring with Spectrum Noir. The stamp is one that was kindly supplied by Flonz craft, one of the sponsors of CHNC challenge 118. I also printed the carol - another one that I guess isn't well known - directly on to the paper, with the addition of some glittered green ribbon and some My Mind's Eye 'all is bright' buttons.

This is the carol:
How do you capture the wind on the water?
How do you count all the stars in the sky?

How can you measure the love of a mother,
Or how can you write down a baby's first cry?

Candlelight, angel light, firelight and starglow
Shine on his cradle till breaking of dawn.
Gloria, Gloria in excelsis deo!
Angels are singing the Christ Child is born.

Have a holly, jolly Christmas


Yes, I know it's Easter, not Christmas, so first of all I wish everyone a HAPPY EASTER.

This is my first card for my CHNC challenge 118 that starts today - I'm asking for cards based on a Christmas carol or song.

I wanted to use the 'Christmas holly' that was kindly supplied by Cedar Chest Designs, on of the sponsors of CHNC challenge 118 - I thought of some popular carols and then found this old carol that is probably not well known. It's quite hard to see on the picture, so I think it's worth showing it here:


Have a holly, jolly Christmas,
It's the best time of the year.
I don't know if there'll be snow,
But have a cup of cheer.
Have a holly, jolly Christmas
And when you walk down the street
Say hello to friends you know
And everyone your meet.

I printed the image directly on to a piece of Authentique paper from the 'peaceful collection' and coloured with Spectrum noir (I haven't deserted my copics and promarkers, but have added the SNs to my collection), also printing the carol direct to paper. The piece of sparkly ribbon has been in my Christmas box for some time and needed using (another piece used on my next card) and the gems are My Mind's Eye 'all is bright', part of a package that I won recently.

Lily of the valley for Easter


This is a simple Easter card using a piece of textured card stock that I have had for ages - no idea where it came from, but thought it made a good background for this CAS card, with just the addition of the sentiment  - I like the way the colour picks up the splodges across the middle of the card - and the Martha Stewart layered lily of the valley.

This is another simple Easter card that focuses on the cross. The base card is white linen texture over which I stuck a piece of patterned acetate that I've had for ages (Dawn Bibby designs silver dragonflies), on to which I layered some nestie die cuts using some offcuts of Craftwork cards tutti frutti cards and papers, stamping the Funstamps 'lily cross' image.

Good Friday


It's a bit late in the day, but I couldn't let Good Friday go by without showing an Easter card depicting the cross - central to Easter.

This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. - 1 John 4:10

This is a simple card using a ready scalloped card blank with Craftwork cards tutti frutti papers, with nestie labels diecuts, on to which I stamped the Hobby Arts 'dove and cross' and the Easter sentiment.

Birthday wishes


A CAS card using a card blank that already had the fancy edging which I then distressed with tattered rose DI. The paper is from a Lost and Found pad by My Mind's Eye and I just added the little flowers in the left hand corner. The sentiment strip is an offcut from one previously used.

Tutti frutti Easter


I've called this 'tutti frutti Easter' because the background paper is from a Craftwork cards 'tutti frutti' pack that I bought quite some years ago. The resin flowers are some from stash. The image is a very simple Funstamps one inked with memento tuxedo black, as well as the sentiment. This was stamped on to a piece of card that has a very lightly patterned look to it (hard to see here).

This is for Moxie fab world Tuesday trigger: pastel pretties - the colours:

Lily of the valley for Easter


I made loads of Easter cards for my charity sales (and for our own use) and they've all gone - so, that's a good result. It means that I took lots of pictures, but didn't get round to blogging them, which is why there are so many Easter cards appearing now!

Another one with the scalloped edge with a background from an offcut, a piece of card taken from a pack of Prima flower spacers, some Martha Steward lily of the valley stickers (they are raised, but that doesn't show here), a peel off cross and a stamped sentiment.
