Happy Easter and...two bonus cards!

Happy Easter!!! Here's a card design that you can get made quickly to get some Easter cards out in the mail. I don't send many or any sometimes but there are a few people that appreciate a card this time of year. (especially those that are still waiting on their Christmas card from!)

I've made this card with several different paper and ink combos. This is the one I used for my class in March. It features Make a Scene and Egg-stravaganza. Those sets work really well together even if the eggs are a little big in comparison to the grass and clouds. But, that just adds to the whimsy which is a good thing! I have the egg die (which is AWESOME because it has a guide that comes with it!!!) but I decided to stamp the eggs straight on the background. The front panel is all stamping - creating the scene. A little quickie glue pen and some diamond dust glitter finishes off the look. Oh - and some vanilla twine is the medium for the bow on the papaya egg. The inks are Papaya, Grapefruit and Ocean for the eggs, sky for the clouds and grass for the grass and sentiment. The cardstock base is grape and the accent piece is papaya. All products are A Muse Studio:
The design is carried over into the inside of the card. I love doing that - adds just a little something special to the card. Do you stamp on the inside of your cards too? 

I'm submitting this card to Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 210 - Happy Easter. You should play along too! :)

And, here are two bonus cards that I made for a card order. The bunny, flower and horse stamps are from TAC and may be available from Red Rubber Designs at some point in time - Happy Trails and I love Easter. The sentiment and cardstock are from A Muse Studio.
A bunny card was the first request. The base is lime cardstock with blueberry and buttercup petite polka dot, sugar and heartbreaker cardstock accents. Tombow markers provided the color. :)
 Here's the inside. I love the happy flowers stamped along the side for a border, don't you?
A horse card was needed for a little boy. I used French Roast ink on kraft for the stamping and added some orange gingham and cocoa for accents.
 Here's the inside with the same Hand-Scripted sentiment from A Muse Studio. What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderfully creative day!
