The Easter Collection - Part 4...last one!

The grand finale of my Easter collection is here.  :-)  Five cards in this post, and it's been fun sharing Easter all week long with you!

Up first, an oldie-but-goodie stained glass lily stamp from Stampin' Up!  I bought it at a garage sale years ago, and it was all by itself, so I'm not sure of the set name.


The sentiment is from Wplus9's Easter Blessings set, which has a great assortment of Easter sentiments.


Stamps: lily stained glass - SU; sentiment - Easter Blessings - Wplus9 Paper: white - PTI; patterns - SU Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black - Tsukineko Fibers: Ash Pink seam binding - Hug Snug Accessories & Tools: pearls; Copic markers; corner rounder punch - Fiskars

On the rest of the cards, I used the same sweet bunny from SU's Tender Toile set in different variations.



Stamps: sentiment - Fresh Cut Wreaths - Wplus9; bunny - Tender Toile - SU Paper: patterns - K & Co. Ink: Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss - SU; Frayed Burlap, Antique Linen - Ranger; Versafine Onyx Black - Tsukineko Fibers: green twine - American Crafts Accessories & Tools: tag punch - Martha Stewart; oval die - Spellbinders; 1/16" hole punch - Fiskars; pearls

On the next card, I stamped the bunny image in Pale Plum, then used Copic markers to color in.  It gives a much different, softer effect than a deeper color of ink would.


One of the problems with making a card, then not blogging about it until a good month later, is that you forget the names of things you've used.  Like this patterned paper, for instance.  I have NO idea which pack it came from.


Stamps: bunny - Tender Toile - SU Paper: Vintage Cream - PTI; Sahara Sand - SU; pattern - ? Ink: Pale Plum - SU; Antique Linen, Tea Dye - Ranger Fibers: lace, vintage thread Accessories & Tools: Parisian Motifs, Fleur de Lis Motifs, oval dies - Spellbinders; pearls; Copic markers

This card is almost identical to the green version up above, but this time done in shades of purple.



And finally, last but not least, and my very favorite...


I stamped a cream base with Vintage Wallpaper background (Market Street Stamps) in Going Gray.  Oh, it makes my heart go pitter-patter with all the damask goodness!  I added some cream crochet lace, and gray velvet ribbon by May Arts.

I'm keeping this one.  :-D


Stamps: Fresh Cut Wreaths (sentiment) - Wplus9; bunny - Tender Toile - SU; Vintage Wallpaper - Market Street Stamps Paper: Vintage Cream - PTI; Going Gray - SU Ink: Going Gray - SU; Versafine Onyx Black - Tsukineko; Antique Linen - Ranger Fibers: vintage thread; gray velvet ribbon - May Arts; crochet trim - IBS Accessories & Tools: tag punch - Martha Stewart; oval, scalloped oval dies - Spellbinders; pearls

I hope you enjoyed the week-long share, and I'll see you soon!  Thanks so much for coming by.
