Easter Cards… Lots of Easter Cards

Hello and Happy Easter! I had so much fun creating all of these Easter cards. They are similar in some ways but each is different and the ideas just kept coming. I find that the more I stay in creative mode the more ideas come. So here we go, grab a cup of coffee or tea. As you will see as you scroll down looking at the cards I kind of the like the Tim Holtz Bunny Hop die set. I also had about 20 some Distress Oxide inks on my desk that I used on the cards.

Adding 2 more cards… no more though.

I had to try the kraft bunnies.. They are die cut using the Bunny Hop die set. The background is ink smooshed with Distress Oxide inks. The plants are die cut using the Funky Nature die set & ink blended. The pot is ink blended and embossed with the woodgrain embossing folder. The eggs are die cut from ink smooshed panels.
This is for a friend that likes nice bright colors. The background is a Lawn Fawn plaid paper. The bunnies are die cut with the Bunny Hop die set and ink blended. The eggs are die cut using the Funky Foliage die set and are ink blended.
I need to give some credit on this one. I was inspired by a very cool card made by Fredrikke Andrea Peterson in the Tim Holtz Addicts group. The bunnies are die cut, using the Bunny Hop die set, from ink smooshed panels. The eggs were cut using the Funky Nature die set and some ink smooshed paper. All the background plants are die cut also using the Funky Nature die set. I ink smooshed the plant dies after die cutting. The background was inking over the TH Honeycomb stencil. Entered over at the Love Handmade Cards April Challenge in Flickr.
The background is embossed using the Intertwined 3D embossing folder and then ink blended after embossing. The bunnies are die cut from Lawn Fawn plaid paper. The eggs are die cut and ink blended.
The background is ink blended. The basket was die cut with the Potted die and embossed with the Intertwined 3D embossing folder. The bunnies cut from Lawn Fawn plaid paper. The eggs die cut and ink blended.
What can I say but I love how these wallpaper bunnies came out. The background was die cut using the Papertrey Ink Quatrefoil die and then I ink blended over it. I kept all the pieces in the background die cut. Bunnies were die cut from Tim Holtz Worn Wallpaper Scraps and inked around the edges.
The background is cut out using the Papertrey Ink Quatrefoil die and this time all the pieces were not kept. Bunnies are die cut from an ink smooshed panel. The basket is done using the Potted die and the Intertwined 3D embossing folder and then ink blended on it. The grass was die cut using the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border die and then ink blended. The eggs are die cut and ink blended.
For this I had the idea for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers hop but didn’t get it done for that. But.. it is done now. For the background I die cut some clouds and temporarily attached them and then ink blended over the background. Then I removed the cloud die cuts. The mug is die cut using the Lawn Fawn die set Outside In Stitched Mug and Lawn Fawn plaid paper. The eggs are die cut and ink blended. The grass is ink blended and die cut using the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border die. The bunnies just die cut.
Aww the cute bunny by Hero Arts. I stamped the bunny scene on watercolor paper. I used Distress ink reinkers to watercolor. The bunny turned out darker than I wanted but he is so cute. I used part of the Memory Box Egg Basket Frame die set to cut a frame for the bunny scene.
This card I made from a kit from Creative Escape in Los Gatos, CA. They have something called Facebook Fridays and you get a little kit to make a card. The flowers and bunny are felt which is fun!
Another Hero Arts Garden Bunny card. This time colored with Copics. I like this lighter brown much better. Die cut using a Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles.
Ink smooshed background. Die cut grass colored with a Copic pen. Basket, bunny, peep, eggs are from the Two Paper Divas stamp set, colored with Copics and cut out by hand.
