Easter Blog Hop

March

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects with an Easter theme.
Don’t forget, sale-a-bration ends on March 31st! There is still time to earn free product with purchase or even join our Stampin’ Up! team. Ask any of the girls on the hop for more details.

This is my first Blog Hop with the Art With Heart group.
I haven’t taken part in a Blog Hop in a very long time, so this should be heaps of fun!
I have used the gorgeous Fable Friends stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue, along with the equally gorgeous Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper, to make a card and two cute little “Bag in a Box”.

Easter 1

Bunny has been coloured using ink pads and an aqua painter.

Easter 2

Here is bunny up close.

Easter 4

And the boxes are just so quick and easy to make, using the Envelope Punch Board.
Perfect for a few Easter eggs.

Easter Challenge Reminder

A quick reminder today about our Easter Challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges.
I have made two quick and easy cards, both using the “For Peep’s Sake” stamp set.

The first card uses some retired papers, but I love the bright, vibrant colours, so couldn’t resist using them.

And for the second card, I have used a sponge dauber to change the colour on the words.
Make sure you check out some other Easter inspiration from the rest of the Design Team.

Happy stamping!

Easter is nearly here…

This week’s Crafty Boots challenge is, of course, Easter.  I wonder what special things you will do for Easter?  Do you have family traditions?
Here in Australia, it is Autumn and the days are getting shorter and cooler, and we are getting prepared for the cold months ahead.  So for us, Easter is not a time when the flowers are emerging and spring is in the air, and we often celebrate Easter with fires lit and warmer clothes starting to appear.  I think I will get my knitting out!
In any case, it is a good excuse to stay cosily inside stamping and crafting! 🙂

My Easter card today uses a beautiful image from Angels Landing, which I have coloured with Copics. I have combined it with some pretty papers from my stash, and the words from the Stampin’ Up! Hello You Thinlits Dies and Crazy About You stamp set.

Wishing all of you a Happy Easter!  And I hope you will share your Easter projects with us at Crafty Boots Challenges – we love to see what you have been making!
Happy stamping!
Chris
