Easter Challenged

I have been trying for days to make some Easter cards that I actually liked without much sucess. Until last night that is. I finally made a couple that I am ok with. I guess Easter cards are just not my thing this year.

So my first card is made on PTI cardstock which I stamped a background of leaves from the Beautiful Blooms set in blush blossom. The matted layer is a pattern paper from the Costco paper pack, I think. I thought it coordinated nicely. Then I stamped the big flower on paper and cut it out in order to mask with it. I placed the cut out on the paper and stamped the leaves over top. I was a little off on my placement, but overall I am still happy with it. I finished off the card by adding some guava double stitched ribbon and doing a few punched layers for the sentiment. This sentiment can be found in the PTI Mixed Messages set.

This card is fairly simple. For my card base I used a pink texture cardstock from bazzill. I also used the same kind of aper for the mattes. I got the assembled egg die cuts from a friend on ebay, Candy at Paper Candy Productions...check her store out she has fantastic stuff! Are those eggs not the cutest little things??? Anyway, I attached them to the bling bazzill with dimensionals and then wrapped the ribbon around. The sentiment is stamped in Pretty in Pink from the set Limitless Labels, again from Papertrey Ink.

Well I think that is all for today, I have made several others but I think I shall post some more another day. Have a great day everyone!
