The Easter Collection - Part 1

Hello!  I'm batching together some Easter cards I made during the last month or so, and will share these with you this week.  Here's Part 1 of the collection.

Up first, a gold and purple card using a stamp from Inspired By Stamping's Easter Labels.  


I used a pretty piece of shimmery paper from DCWV Chateau Lavender stack, a golden oval die cut (from a $1 Scrap Bag), and a stamped purple label.


Stamps: Easter Labels - Inspired By Stamping Paper: white, Vintage Cream - PTI; pattern - Chateau Lavender - DCWV; gold - SU Ink: Purple Hydrangea - Tsukineko Fibers: Cameo Beige - Hug Snug Accessories & Tools: purple gems - Queen & Co.; oval die - Spellbinders

I made the next card while the supplies from the above card were still out on my desk.




Stamps: Easter Labels - Inspired By Stamping Paper: kraft, white - PTI; patterns - Chateau Lavender - DCWV Ink: Purple Hydrangea - Tsukineko; Walnut Stain - Ranger Fibers: Mottle Brown seam binding - Hug Snug; crochet trim - Hero Arts; twine - Creative Impressions; vintage thread; cream twine - American Crafts Accessories & Tools: purple gems - Queen & Co.; vintage buttons

The next one uses papers from Girls' Paperie, and a freebie egg wreath stamp from Verve.  "Joy" is from IBS's Elegant Christmas Sentiments.  The pink patterned paper was from a large piece of shaped paper, not your standard 12 x 12 square sheet.  I trimmed off one corner of it and kept those fancy


I added some subtle pink shading around the egg wreath while the die was still in place, and after coloring the eggs, added some Liquid Pearls.


Stamps: 'joy; - Elegant Christmas Sentiments - IBS; egg wreath - Easter Joy - Verve  Paper: white - PTI; patterns - Girls' Paperie Ink: Tattered Rose - Ranger; Memento Tuxedo Black - Tsukineko Fibers: white seam binding - Hug Snug; white crochet trim Accessories & Tools: circle die - Spellbinders; Petal Pink, Lemon Yellow Liquid Pearls - Ranger; Copic markers; pearls - Queen & Co.

Thanks for checking out my Easter cards today.  I really appreciate your visit!
