Painter Bunny Easter Card

I have three kids, so of course I have a third gift card holder card to share. I created another bunny. He is the same design as the last, one punch, but I posed him differently. I also gave him him a paint brush. He reminds me of the Easter bunnies found in German Easter story books. He's just missing his glasses.

It's harder to tell in the photo, but my pearls aren't white. I used my Blendabilities marker to colour the pearls a light peachy-pink.
I also chose bright hues for this one even though it's a card for one of my sons. It's a bit of a secret, but he loves pink.

I left the inside a little plain, but did carry over the colours.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Stamps: And Many More - SU, All Year Cheer 1 - SU
Die:  Timeless Rectangle - Nestabilities - Spellbinder
Ink: Sahara Sand, Blushing Bride, Strawberry Slush, Chocolate Chip, Basic Black - all SU
Alcohol marker: Skin tone - Blendabilities - SU
Misc.: 5/8" light blue satin ribbon, 3/8" pearls, white gel pen, black marker, foam mounting squares

Full punch art instructions below.

Easter Bunny Card

Today I am sharing my second gift card holder Easter card. This one is a cute Easter bunny. I choose subdued, masculine tones that would appeal to my son more than bright spring colours.

As with my chick, the punch art design uses a single punch (not including the eggs).
I carried the colour scheme over to the inside of the card which holds a gift card.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned paper: misc. scraps
Stamps:Teeny Tiny Wishes - SU, A Little Somthin' - SU
Die:  Oval Framelits - SU
Embossing folder:  Lacy brocade - SU
Punches: Word window - SU, Modern label - SU, Small, wide oval - SU (eggs), Owl punch, see below instructions
Ink: Crumb Cake - SU, Basic Black - SU, Daffodil Delight - SU, Strawberry Slush - SU, Always Artichoke - SU

Chick Easter Gift Card Holder

As I don't usually send out cards for Easter making several would be a bit of a waste. I do however give gifts to my kids and often little treats to friends and family.

So although my next few projects are A2 cards they are also gift card holders.

First up is  my daughter's, a cute little spring chick just cracked out of it's shell.

I chose very bright and cheery spring colours which I carried over to the inside of the card.
The gift card is held in place by a strip of cardstock attached only on either side.

You may recognize the chick design, it's basically the same as my little Valentine owls. I love this design as it's a one punch creation.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned paper: Karen Foster (very old)
Stamps:  Wacky Wishes - SU, All Year Cheer 1  SU, A Little Somthin' - SU, Itty Bitty Banners - SU
Punches: Scallop oval - SU, Large, wide Oval - SU, Modern Label (punch art - Owl builder - SU)
Die: Labels Eighteen - Nestabilities - Spellbinders
Embossing Folder: Christmas Elegance - Sizzix
Ink: Crushed Curry, Daffodil Yellow, Garden Green, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie - all SU
Alcohol marker: Blendabilities - skin tone (one of the peach tones) - SU
Misc.: floral ribbon trim (Doll-a-Rama), white gel pen, black marker, rose/red chalk, 3/8" pearls (top 3 were coloured with alcohol marker), foam mounting squares.

Full punch art instructions below.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you again soon.

Happy Easter Card

My absolutely wonderful SU rep, knowing I lost out on the green markers,  gifted me a package of Olive Green Blendabilities last week.

So of course I had to get to work on one more Indescribable Gift card making good use of them.
Here is the result:

I opted for yellow this time around and kept the card very simple with layers of white to keep the focus on the lovely blossoms. I also decided to add a touch of sparkle with random, tiny, rhinestones and a little glitter.

I wanted to feature the image inside a beautiful cut frame so I used a die to cut my frame and my coloured image. I used the negative/inside for the front of my card and the actual frame cut from the image on the inside to carry over the blossom theme.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Recollections 110 lbs white
Stamps: Indescribable Gift - SU, Easter Blossoms - SU
Markers: Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Soft Sky and Skin Tone Blendabilities - SU
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Die:  Twisted Metal Tags and Accents - Shapeabilities - Spellbinders
Embossing Folder: Petals-A-Plenty - SU
Misc.: 1/16" and 1/8" clear rhinestones, 5/8" light blue organza ribbon, Foam mounting squares, Diamond Sparkles - PSX

Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you again soon.

Sheep Easter Favour

Today I am sharing the last of my Easter favours. Of course this is also made with the Curvy Keepsake die (you may wish to buy it if you don't have it yet). I love the shape of this die. It is so versatile. And if you'd rather just make a cute punch art card you can just trim one handled side and place this cute critter on a card front.

My sweet little lamb is holding a TicTac container but any little treat will work.  Here's a side view that lets you see the contents a little better.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Ink: Crumb Cake, Strawberry Slush, Smokey Slate, all SU
Die: Curvy Keepsake - SU
Punches: see below instructions
Misc.: 5/8" gold organza ribbon, white gel pen, rose/pink chalk

Full instructions below.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you again soon.
