Easter Duck

We’re having some lovely warm sunny weather in the middle of France, so it’s easy to believe it will soon be Easter.  We bbqed, for the first time this year, yesterday – I don’t think we’ve ever done it so early before – something pleasant in the midst of all the sad news.              I made this Easter card for one of my grandchildren, using Spring Duck 2 from Bugaboo Stamps.  The image is coloured with Promarkers and die cut with a stitched rectangle die and a fancy corner die.  The fence and sun are die cut and the sentiment is computer generated.

Butterfly Girl

I don’t often make fancy fold cards but I used this fold a few weeks ago and really liked it – so decided to make another card with it.  I used the digi image, Little Butterfly Girl from All Dressed Up, coloured it with Promarkers and Copics and added Stickles Star Dust to the wings.  I use a lot of pink on my cards but my favourite colour has always been blue – I even wanted blue sandals when I was little.  The die cut sentiment, butterfly cluster and tiny butterflies are all embossed and the flowers are from my stash.

Fairy Dust in the Forest

I couldn’t resist making another card with my Lavinia stamps.  I distressed the background and stamped Spring Trees, Fairy Dust Silhouette, mini Slender Mushrooms and a mini Flutterby.  The wings on the fairy and butterflies were glittered with Stickles Crystal and the tiny green gems are from my stash.

Moonlight Dragons

I really like the Lavinia stamps but don’t use them often enough, so I decided it was time I inked some of them up.  I distressed the background for this card and used these Lavinia stamps – Spring Trees, Fairy House, miniature Dragon and miniature Slender Mushrooms.  I used white and silver pens on the Fairy House and added lilac Liquid Pearls and Stickles Crystal to it.

Ladybug Line

We’ve have so much rain lately I just can’t wait to see the sun again – so my sentiment on this card is a plea for summer to come quickly..!!  I made an easel card using a Bugaboo digi – Ladybug Line – and coloured it with Promarkers.  The small butterflies were punched and the gems and tiny pearls are from my stash.  There is a red gem heart on the largest ladybug, where the heart is drawn, but it’s not showing up well in the photo.
