How to make a fun Easter/Spring themed card

Welcome back!

We had a fun week this week, with animal themed cards, so I am delighted to be able to share two of these with you in this blog post. We will start with the lovely Springtime Joy stamp set, which I used to create these cute 4" x 4" cards.

I stamped the rabbit and the two little chicks with Early Espresso ink, and then used the Blends pens to colour them in. For the rabbit I used Crumb Cake (light and dark) with some Petal Pink added for the highlight in the ears and cheeks. Poppy Parade and Mango Melody pens were used for the flowers and the chicks, with a tiny amount of Pumpkin Pie. The grass you can see was created by using one of the stamps from the Hydrangea Hill, stamped in Pear Pizzazz just under the feet of the rabbit and the chicks.  Any similar stamp would do.

Here is the sweet Springtime Joy stamp set. You can see more information online about this stamp set by clicking on the image below. It's £19 for the set and available from the January-June mini catalogue.

It is such an easy card to make, here is another variation, using the Rabbit and the Basket of Eggs.  The papers in the photo below are from our Neutrals range of Designer papers, these come as 6"x6" paper stacks, and there are 40 sheets in each pack. You can see the writing side on the rabbit one below, and the dotty side on the sheep cards at the bottom.

For the cards, I used the following measurements:

Cut and fold base card to measure 99mm x 99mm.
Designer series paper of choice cut to 92mm x 92mm
I used the largest circle from the Stitched Shaped Dies for the White card layer, with the largest scallop circle die from the Layering Circle Dies pack for the matching background circle.
