Easter bunny ....

.... Hello - I seem to have lost this week!!!  Well, I suppose from time to time, real life must take the front seat :)  Anyway, I've managed to find some time to play in my craft room this morning and I've made another Easter card for this year's collection.  I used the following challenges:


Stamps: Waltzingmouse - A Good Egg, Spring Baskets
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Regal Rose, Pool Party, Early Espresso
Dies: Spellbinders - Nested Eggs (S40264) #5; WMS - Cut Files for A Good Egg
Accessories: Design Paper - Kaisercraft - Secret Admirer; White lustre card



I got my new Waltzingmouse Stamps yesterday - I'm so pleased that they now ship from the US (thanks Lynn).  I used my Cameo to cut the files that Claire has made to go with A Good Egg (they're only 99p from the shop) and used my Fiskars stamp press to stamp the images.  I'm so glad that I found this press, it really does make it so easy to position the stamps and get a great impression too.  I covered the card base with a sheet of green Kaisercraft paper (if you look closely you can see some pale blue script on the page).  Next I cut a layer of white card and die cut the egg.  I attached the frame to the card with dimensional tape and adhered the little bunny egg inside the negative space.  I added a tiny flower to the top of the frame.  For the inside I used a coordinating sheet of paper and adhered the die cut egg, on which I stamped a simple sentiment. I kept reasonably close to the colours and the MUSE sketch.

In my last post I mentioned editing some photos from the class I attended - if you're interested the link is here.  Sadly, the football match didn't go quite as I'd hoped - Chelsea started so badly but fortunately the match finished in a draw - so the game will be replayed!  Hopefully, Chelsea will play like they mean it from the start.  Oh yes, winter seems to have made a come back; it's below freezing again and we're expecting more snow!

Well, that's all for now - I really do hope to be back again tomorrow.  See you soon.

I just adore this Easter take on the Muse's card! It's so pretty, and how clever to use the positive image on the inside! :)
