Planner Series: Wedding

Basket Add-on: Hoppy Easter

Basket Add-on: Hoppy Easter Sweet Cuts

I made several cards to share with you so let's get started:

First up I made three identical notecards with different colored gingham backgrounds:

The first one is Pink Gingham:
 Each of the cards features the lamb and bird from the "Hippity Hoppity Easter Wishes" stamps and sweet cuts sets as well as the adorable bunny from the newly released "Basket Add-On: Hoppy Easter" stamp set.  I had fun paper piecing parts of the images and coloring them with Copic Markers.
I added a teeny tiny paper-pieced flower to the lamb from the New "Basket Add-on: Hoppy Easter" stamps/sweet cuts.  This is the same tiny flower die that I used yesterday to make the felt flowers under my sequins on my circle card set.  I love it!!!!

I paper pieced the bunny's bow and clothing.

 And I added a paper-pieced wing to each of the birds at an angle to the first wing which I colored with Copic marker!  It's all about the little details don't you think?  They make me smile!

Here are pictures of the other two cards:

Turquoise Gingham:
Here I used a sweet floral patterned paper for my paper piecing. 

And light green gingham:
And here a sweet green and pink striped patterned paper.  I love how they all turned out!!!!! And I decided to not add a sentiment to them YET!  That way I can use them for all sorts of Spring Occasions from Birthday's to Easter!

I have one last card to share today:

This one features the main elements from the "Basket Add-On: Hoppy Easter" ensemble.  
The basket is stamped in sweet blush ink.  To it I added the adorable Easter eggs which I paper pieced from a variety of papers.  Then the adorable bunny was added just above the sentiment which is from the "Jelly Bean Time" stamp set.  I tied a piece of torn pink fabric for a bow at the top of the basket but there is also an adorable bow you can stamp to add to the basket too.  I finished off the card with three of the teeny tiny felt flowers and some pretty watermelon sequins.

And the background is an embossed panel of cherry blossoms that I colored with Copic markers.  It is layered onto a piece of green cardstock and then I added to strips of patterned paper to the bottom of the card to ground the basket.

Whoo!  Are you still with me?  Sorry that was kind of a long post!!!!  I now get to send you off to the lovely Karen Letchworth's blog:  My Cup Runneth Over!
