For Peep’s Sake Enjoy An Egg-Cellent Easter

Hello!  I’m glad to be back creating and blogging.  I’ve been gone for a few week’s due to my father’s passing.  It’s been difficult to get back into the routine of life and to muster up the motivation to be creative.  It’s coming back little by little and  getting back into my craft room and being among my stamp sets and inks has been inspiring.  More inspiration has also come from seeing projects from the Hand Stamped Sentiments design team.

I used the colors of Blackberry Bliss, Blushing Bride and Wild Wasabi from the Hand Stamped Sentiments color splash challenge.  I also have so many great products from the Occasions catalog I had not had an opportunity to use.  One of them is the super cute Easter set For Peep’s Sake.  Perfect for Easter or cute spring card.  Another product I had to play with is the Butterflies Thinlits Dies.  You can create beautiful die cut butterflies with this set.  With so many great products and the colors provided by HSS I was inspired to create this Easter card.

Chocolate Easter Bunny Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have an Easter Inspiration Challenge.  I love the Chocolate Bunny image from My Digital Studio.  I printed him out in Early Espresso and with my Versamark pen I shaded in some of the areas then heat embossed with Iridescent Embossing Powder.  I then layered him over the Enchantment DSP and Soft Suede CS.  I used the Edgelit Dies, Adorning Accents embossing folders and coordinating stamp set Bordering on Romance on the Soft Suede and Calypso Coral.  For the bow on my bunny I used white Baker’s Twine that I dyed with Poppy Parade.

I also punched some of the flowers using the Blossom punch, Five Petal Flower punch, Boho punch and Punch Pack.  The flowers are embellished with pearls and butterflies die cut with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.   I also used the Pinking Hearts border punch underneath the sentiment.

Bird chirping weather

Today is a beautiful sunny day in San Antonio.  The birds are chirping and you can see that spring is slowly coming.  A few days ago on Tuesday it was a different story.  It was actually snowing.  Big beautiful flakes were falling and my husband and I were so excited because snow is not something we see where we live.  The snow fell for about 20 or 30 minutes and then it was gone.  But it was a moment where you stand at the window and take it all in because you never know when you’ll see something so beautiful and serene.  Today the sun is shining, still cold, but you can hear the birds chirping and you’re counting the days for spring.  It’s almost here!

Inspired by the sunny weather I created this Easter birdhouse card.   I had run across this birdhouse card on Janet’s blog.  You can also find the template there.  I changed it up and put a different roof on mine.  Here is my card.  I was also surprised to see that on PPA they are having an inspiration challenge about birds so I am also going to post my card there for their PPA31- An Inspiration Challenge.  All the background papers are printed from My Digital Studio’s Sweat Pea kit.
