Easter is coming


Eeek! It's Friday already and I have several Easter cards to make today; a few of them have to be in today's mail drop, too. Of course, I have to take Hannah to the vet in Olympia for a follow-up on her ear infection and a booster shot for her flu shot. If there's time after the vet appointment, I'm hoping to make the lunch with my stamping club. And then there's the Friday afternoon traffic on I-5.

Here's the start on my Easter cards. This is a card using an adorable stamp from Art Impressions. Tulips are one of my favorite spring flowers and that bunny is ridiculously cute. I stamped with VersaFine ink onto a 4-inch Art Square from Inchie Arts, and colored the image with my Prismacolor colored pencils. I used a black glaze pen to emphasize the eyes.

I love what Anita Houston has done with all of the watercolor paper scraps she has accumulated from her demo's using Ken Oliver's Color Burst. She used these beautiful colored background papers for an Easter display.

Check out her blog posting for more details and better views of this terrific Easter project:

It may have taken her 6 dies from Memory Box/PoppyStamps to make this stunning card, but I think it was well worth it.

Jenny Gropp's card creations for Impression Obsession are always one of the best. Here is an elegant card that would be simple to make. Check it out.
