Happy Easter one layer cards

Happy Easter

I have been enjoying making these almost one layer cards so much that I thought I would share a few more.

For my first one I used the Lily Sympathy Cross


On this one I stamped it with Memento Coco Ink and colored with Copic markers.


I inked the greeting in two parts so I could stamp it separate. This stamp is called Celebrate Easter Celebrate Christ.



On this card I used the Easter Lily and Crosses  and used Zig markers. The greeting is Blessed with Gifts Easter Greeting.

And I have one last card to share.


For this card I used the Daisy Basket and Zig markers with the Springtime Easter Greeting. I did a a strip of lace across the top to cover a mark on the paper.

These are fun easy cards to make even if they are simple.

Have a wonderful day,

Janett

Everybunny

Hi all,
It's almost Easter, and the trees are starting to get there leaves. Spring is here everything is turning yellow 😀 gotta love it.

This is my Nuvo Mousse card I used it for everything on this card. I start with the background I scoped out a tiny bit from the jar and added a drop of water then with a paint brush I brushed it on the Easy Dot Background   I stamped it across the paper with all three colors not minding if they overlapped when I was finished I added more water and did splatters across the paper ( colors used Peony Pink,Aquamarine,Cornflower Blue). For the Simple Easter Bunny    I used black, Color Box Ink and clear embossing powder then I just rubbed the Nuvo Mousse across the bunny's. The New Happy Easter Everybunny was done the same way. This was the easiest card that I have ever colored.

Have a wonderful day,

The Beauty of Springtime

Hi all,
What a week it has been, we have had some terrible storms this week one night the power went off at 9:00 and didn't come back on until the next afternoon. Today is beautiful with the sun shinning so I can see all the yard work that needs to be done I think spring is finally here.

My card this week is a Easter card that is very simple.


With this new set of stamps I found myself do this almost one layer stamping. I found that I really liked the look of stamping the Image and the Greeting on the same layer and it was super simple with the use of my Misty. 

For this card I stamped the Brushed Pussy Willow twice across the bottom of the panel and then stamping the new Springtime Easter Greeting in Memento Coco Ink I used Copic to color the image. This was layered onto a Lt. Pink die cut card then onto a cream card. I just loved the simple elegant look.

Have a wonderful day,

Spring is in the air

Hi all, what a week it has been, old man winter woke up in a bad mood, from all the snow in the north and freezing temps down south. All my beautiful azalea's were starting to bloom with the promise of spring only to be frozen and now are a ugly brown. Today promises to be warmer so my hopes for spring are anew. 


So my card this week is all about spring.



I started by stamping the Ducks Decoration and coloring with Zig Clear Color markers. The daffodils are from the Daffodil Frame that I fussy cut. The white embossed It's Spring is from the Spring Bee Happy Greeting. After embossing I rubbed Mousse Peony Pink Nuvo Embellishment Mousse over the top.



For the background I used the Nuvo Embellished Mousse in Peony Pink, Aquamarine, Cornflower Blue and a stencil. So now back to dreaming of spring.

Have a wonderful day,
