#254 Easter

I seems odd to be thinking of celebrating Easter when half the world is in lockdown, and thousands of people are dying. But life, even a watered down version such as self isolated life, does go on. So for this coming weekend we at Crafty Cardmakers wish you all a very Happy  and Healthy Easter. Stay indoors folks and stay safe.
Marlene is hosting today's challenge, Easter.

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece or home decor, as long as it meets the theme.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT

Marlene
I have made an Easter Basket using 6x6 papers, various dies and some chocolate eggs

Judy

I made this Easter card for one of my grandchildren using an Easter Bunny cutting die scene, Copics, and some Wink of Stella. I cut the die twice, once in brown and once in white. and added the areas to the first cut that I wanted coloured. I love the background paper that I found in my stash called Tie Dyed by DCWD.

Josephine

I used stamps from Creative, Card-io, and some from Rubber Stamp Tapestry with Memento ink and some masking to create this Easter card.

Glenda

I created an Easter card for a child using an Easter Stamp from Beccy's Place. Please see my blog for more details!

Mary

Using Hunkydory's Little Book of Spring Days and Country Life I decoupaged the design using several pages of the same image. The border is made from off cuts from other projects.

Angela

This is a Tuxedo Pop-up card with Tim Holtz die cut bunnies and flowers inside. If you like this I have a tutorial for making it on my blog.

Jo

A traditional Easter cad using a Hunkydory sheet.More info on my blog,

Maike

I do love patell colours for Easter cards and this cute bunny by Gerda Steiner Designs was just the perfect image for the layout I had in mind. Happy crafting, everyone and take care ;o)

Kimx

I don't usually do Easter cards, and I'm the mean Mamma that gives the Grandchildren books not eggs, but this year is so very different that I thought the least I could do is send out some cards.

Jackie

I don't usually give Easter cards, because I see people, but this year I will be socially distancing from family members, so I will send cards instead. I am still stash busting - and this card was made using a kit from my stash.

Hello everyone, Today I have cute little decorated eggs to share with you. To make these little Easter gifts, I have used 'Confetti' paper pad from KAISERCRAFT along with gorgeous flowers from Little Birdie Crafts. At the end, I have added sentiments by using Tim Holtz Idea-Ology stickers. Hope all of you safe and healthy at home. Stay strong and positive my lovely friends. Lots of love..

Lin
I have used a combination of Tim Holtz and Memory Box dies and an AAll and Create stencil to create my Easter card. See my blog for details

We look forward to seeing what you can come up with!

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece or home decor, as long as it meets the theme.

I have used Hunkydory's Little Book of Sweet Springtime and decoupaged one of the images. I matted it onto silver mirri and a pastel yellow card. I used tattered Lace dies to cut the sentiment.

Glenda

I used a Whimsy Stamp titled 'Bonnie', coloured her with Copics and gave her a background using various die cuts.

Angela

Docraft papers were used for this card. The central images are 3D decoupage and the tags were cut from one of the background papers. Look forward to seeing what you all come up with. Happy crafting, Angela xXx

Josephine

Marlene

To make my card I have used a Paper Nest Dolls Stamp she is called LuLu with Daffodil added a few Flowers and gems.

Margaret

To create my card, I have used papers and a flair by Kaisercraft, Tim Holtz Wildflower dies as well as flowers and stamens from my stash. Can't wait to see what you come up with! Happy crafting everyone!! xx

Hello, I made a card with lot of flowers. I hope you like it.

Maike

I just love this cute turtle by Gerda Steiner Design and making this card really cheered me up a lot. Just like spring always does! Take care and happy crafting everyone!

Kimx

Nothing like daffodils to make you think of Spring, and as it was Mother's Day in the UK this weekend this seems the perfect card for this challenge.

Jackie

My card is a fresh spring colours flower box, made using some scrap paper and ribbon from my stash and some flower embellishments.

Lin

I've made a tag with some lovely bright colours, using Studio Light stamp and Graphic 45 and John Next Door dies see my blog for details

#252 Green

In celebration of St. Patrick's Day on 17th March, Chanya is hosting today's challenge, Green. It does not have to be just green and as long as green is your predominant colour then it will fit our challenge, but please, one small green leaf will not!

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece or home decor, as long as it meets the theme.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT

Marlene
