Easter Bunny from Clearly Besotted

Good morning everyone. I just thought I would share a couple more of my Easter cards that I made for my team at work before we broke up for the 2 week holiday. This cutie was a freebie digi stamp from Clearly besotted last Easter, so I am not sure if it is still available to download or not.

I kept this one fairly simple, using my alphabet banner dies to create the sentiment and added a few egg dies as well. 

This card is also for

Scene It Sunday #39 Featuring Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Springtime Happy Easter from Polkadoodles

Good morning everyone and welcome to this week's Scene It Sunday. I guess I am cheating a bit here as it is a very small scene, but most of my Easter cards are a lot more simple than my other scenic cards. I actually attempted to make 6 cards last Sunday, this being one of them, but by the end my mojo had had enough and they all became simpler and simpler as I got through them. That was all my fault for not being organised enough and getting them done before I needed them. (I needed 6 for my work colleagues in my team!)

Anyway...this cutie is Happy Easter from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Springtime Collection from Polkadoodles! She just looks so adorable dressed up in her bunny outfit to deliver Easter eggs and pretty flowers to her friends and family!

Something Else on Saturday #97 Featuring Unicorn BDay Anya from The Greeting Farm

Good morning everyone and welcome to today's Something Else on Saturday post. This week I am sharing a fun birthday card with you all using one of my favourite stamp sets from The Greeting Farm, but one which I have let sit for months since I have bought it! I am so bad at doing that - I buy way more than I use (I think all us crafters are guilty of that!) and I coloured her up straight away, but I have only just gotten round to adding sweet little Anya to a card!

I have to admit I got really stuck on how to set out my card and images on this one. I probably should have used some of the my digis from The Greeting Farm to make a scene for her to go on, but I didn't so ended up just adding some papers and popped her up on the front. I think I will use this stamp set again with a printed background though!

For my card I chose to use the cute Peaceful Easter digi as I need to make a few Easter cards to hand out at work. I don't really send Easter cards, but working in a school the 2 week Easter holidays are a much welcomed break, so I tend to give out a bag of mini chocolate eggs (this year I've picked Galaxy Indulgence ones!) and add a card to go with them too.

Scene It Sunday #38 Featuring Bonnet from Krista Smith

Good morning and Happy Sunday. Boy this weekend seems to have flown by already! Today I am sharing the card I made for my Mother-in-law for Mother's Day last Sunday. She loves sunflowers so this image, which I got from Krista Smith's Patreon back in March 2020, was perfect for it.

Something Else on Saturday #96 Featuring Aurora Be Fun Be You from Stamp Anniething

Good morning and happy Saturday to you all! Welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday and today I am sharing a bright, fun card using one of the digi stamps from Stamp Anniething that was a freebie a few weeks ago. I love these images and although I do have  few of their clear rubber stamps, with the worldwide situation going on at the moment and with Brexit happening here in the UK too I'm reluctant to order anything directly from America in case they go astray or I get slammed with ridiculously high import charges! 

Anyway...this cutie is Aurora and I decided to make a happy sending smiles card and coloured her using some of my favourite Copic combos! Lots of layers of patterned papers and a few dies cuts added to the fun and then some ribbon and Nuvo Crystal drops finished it all off! I love these drops and have so many of them now! I can't stop buying them!

Scene It Sunday #37 Featuring Milkshake by Mama Elephant

Happy Sunday everyone! I do love Sundays as they are my card making day and I get to use all my latest goodies to make pretty little cards. For today's card, I decided to use my other new stamp set form Mama Elephant and for something, made a shaker card. I now remember why I don't make these all too often though as they can be a pain as this one was.

I forgot to dust the inside edges of my foam tape so all the gems stick to it! Grrr. i couldn't reopen it afterwards to do that though, so will have to just leave it as it is unfortunately :( Luckily I added enough gems, which are left over from my diamond painting kits, to still have enough to shake!

Something Else on Saturday #95 Featuring Little Signage Agenda from Mama Elephant

Good morning everyone and happy Saturday! I hope you have all had a great week! Mine was interesting to say the least with it being the first week back in school. It is a bit nerve wracking but I have now had my first Covid-19 jab and hopefully this is a step in the right direction for us all now!

Anyway...today's card uses my new set form mama Elephant. I just love these cute little animals holding their signs so you can make the sentiment say whatever you want.

Chatting on the internet is just not the same as in person!

Good morning and happy Sunday! I hope you have all had a good week. It's back to work tomorrow for me as schools are reopening so I wonder what new joys this next few days and weeks will bring!
