Happy Easter

Greetings, Fellow Papercrafters!  Today's post is an Easter card, since Easter is so close to St. Patrick's Day this year. Two weeks separates the holidays, so there is not much time to get Easter cards done if you want to send them out.

This card features my favorites, Tilda from Magnolia Stamps, and Hero Arts. The little girl is Fancy Romantic Tilda, and the stamp has her holding an umbrella.  I cut off the umbrella after stamping the design on white card stock, and added the basket of eggs from an Inky Antics clear stamp set. I colored all of the stamped images with my copic markers, along with the two flowers and leaves from the Hero Arts "Blossom" set.

After all of the images were colored, I set them aside, and got out my pink card stock background and a piece of pink vertical striped paper and stamped the sentiment Happy Easter in Rose bud Memento ink. I believe the Happy Easter was from an assorted holiday stamp set from Fiskars.  To give it just a bit of twinkle, I added a few pink faceted stones for the middles of the flowers and attached them to the card front, using foam squares to pop up Tilda just a bit, so she would stand out on the card.  As a last thought, I used some Smooch ink on the edges of the flowers, just so they would sparkle just a little.

I will try to post a few more Easter cards this week, that are fairly easy to complete. Then if you are like me and running behind in getting your cards done, you will still have time to finish them and get them in the mail by next week.  Take care, and Stamp Happy!  See you again soon.
