This week I have been busy making some Easter cards to sell at Craft Hutt and at a Craft Fair I am going to on Good Friday at the Cossie Club in Upper Hutt. I have used some Skylark and Chantilly papers as well as the new Free to Be Me papers from this months Constant Campaign celebrating National Scrapbooking month. This special paper pack includes beautiful textured cardstock, vellum and gorgeous papers and is normally valued at $19. If you spend $75 in one order then you can purchase this pack for just $5.
For this card I have used the teal shimmer trim to mix with the gorgeous gold spotted vellum. With the vellum I used adhesive under the gold spots to make sure it did not show up on the outside. You can just see the beautiful finish to the red cardstock and I have completed the card with the images from the Hoppy Easter stamp set.
I love the simplicity of this card. I have just layered the vellum over the red cardstock and teamed it with the red paper from the paper pack. The sentiment is from the hostess gift Some Bunny.
I have used a cut that I made from making a box lid for the label for this card. I never throw anything out and the colour of this (Creme Brulee) cut worked in perfectly and I had a spare white label already cut so this card came together very quickly. The strong vertical paper is cut from one of the patterned papers and it made a great strip with two 0.5 cm strips of the red cardstock on either side. I have used images from both the Some Bunny and Hoppy Easter for this card.
Here again with this card I have teamed the vellum with the red cardstock. I have stamped the flowers from the Hoppy Easter with Black ink and coloured them using the alcohol markers from CTMH and finished them off with some Bitty Sparkles. Finally for this card I have used the Gold Polka Dot washi tape and teamed them up with the paper and cardstock from the pack. Plus I have managed to centre a strip of the gold polka dotted vellum and it looks like I have got some gold brads on each side of the focus image. Again I have stamped the flowers and coloured them in with the alcohol markers and finished off with Bitty Sparkles. I have also added a little extra with some Bakers Twine in Cranberry.
Here are some Easter cards I have done using the Skylark and left over Chantilly papers (NLA).
I have kept this card quite simple and have matched Indian Cornflower Blue cardstock with the same colour on the little girl’s dress. I have stamped the girl on White Daisy cardstock and fussy cut it out and then coloured in with alcohol markers. The images are from the Some Bunny stamp set.
I love how I can mix and match the colours from different sets. Here I have used Indian Cornflower Blue cardstock and placed some Topiary Mini Chevron Ribbon over it. The flowers have been coloured in using Buttercup, Cotton Candy and Sweet Leaf alcohol markers.Finally, this is my favourite go to pattern for making cards. I have used a combination of different patterned papers from Skylark and kept the image very simple.
