Sweet bunny and hot chicks for Easter!!

>> Tuesday, March 26, 2013

Hi all, did you all have a nice weekend?? Hope you are preparing some Easter cards too..
There is still some time left to join our monthly challenge!! 

Today I will show you a sweet bunny Easter card which I have made for a blogfriend...

copics used:
Bunny: E 11, E 31, E50, E53
flowers: E 11, YR 02
shadows: B00, B 05

Have you seen the hot chicks coloured by my DT mate??
I have done some experiments with colouring the same chicks..
The photo's are not excellent..sorry.
May I have your votes please??

1 blue copics : B00, B 05, B28, B39

2 pink copics : E04, R00, R20, R32

They remind me of the colouring tablets for the easter eggs..When I was little we used to boil eggs in a pan and at the end you could add colour tablets to colour the shells ..the smell was not that good but the colours were such fun...

Would love to get some feedback on my blog..
what you think about my colouring experiment.
It was fun to do!!
Wish you all a perfect EASTER!!

material used besides copics:
** card with Easter bunny 
The cute bunny is a stamp from LOTV..

Easter Eggs

>> Saturday, March 23, 2013

Hello, Deneen here to bring you an Easter card.  This month the Challenge has been Easter, and can you believe that it is just over a week away now!  Do you have plans to hide any Easter eggs?

Card Size:  4.25" x 5.5"
I found this cute digital image of TeddyBo - called Easter Bo Bunny - resting on top of an Easter egg.  I coloured it with Copics and then attached it to my card.  Note to self, remember to add sentiment BEFORE attaching, lol, it makes it so much easier than trying to stamp on foam squares.

Copics Used:
Hat - V12, V15, R81, R83
Sweater - YG21, YG23, YG67
Bear - E13, E15, E21
Egg - Y11, Y15
Straw - YR24
Ground YR30, YR31, YR24, Y32
Sky - BG0000

Recipe:  TeddyBo Digital Stamp-Easter Bo Bunny, PP-BoBunny Double Dot Blush Dot  & American Crafts Amy Tangerine Kristi's Craft, Purple CS, CTMH CS-White Daisy, CTMH SS-Say It In Style, CTMH Ink-Black, Spellbinder-Labels 28, Foam Squares, Copics.

Happy Easter from our house to yours!  And remember you have about a week left to join M4M's Easter Challenge.



Easter at M4M

>> Friday, March 22, 2013

Having missed my DT post last fortnight due to school camp, I determined that I had to get something done for this month's challenge at Mad for Markers Challenge. With next Friday being Good Friday, I decided to base my cards on the life that Jesus provides us through his loving sacrifice for us.

These mini cards use Maya Road Clear Stamps 'Defined' sentiments,  Memento Rich Cocoa ink and my trusty Copics (E42, E47, G43, G46, B000). Having looked through my craft supplies I realised I hadn't used the sentiment set much or my brown ink pad so simplicity was the verdict for this post.

God bless,


The Cutest Easter Bunny

>> Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Hi everyone it's Naomi here with todays post.
I have made another card to share with you today although my intention was to make a basket but I have been a bit slack and didn't get it finished in time.

 I have used one of Sherri Baldy's very cute "Besties" images. This one is simply called "Easter Bestie" isn't she cute with her big bunny ears.
Even though Easter is in Autumn here in Australia I still went with Spring colours for this card I think they suited much better than the muted Autumn tones :)

The copics I used are:
Skin: E000,E00,E21,R20,R11
Lips: R20,R21,R11
Hair: E11,E13,E15
Clothing/Shoes etc: RV000,RV00,BG000,BG01,B0000,Y000,Y11,Y13,Y15
Basket/Eggs:E30,E31,E34, YR0000,YR000,YR01

I am loving all the entries we have so far and can't wait to see what is yet to come as there is still plenty of time to get your entry in.

Make sure you come back each day to see what the other girls have to inspire you to play along.

Easter Bunny

>> Thursday, March 14, 2013

This card is so far out of my comfort zone I usually do clean and simple cards, but I thought I would try something different and use a sketch (the one I saw in Christa's entry last month). It wasn't different because it was a sketch (I use sketches sometimes) but it was all the embellishments and layers to this card that was different and a little difficult. I just kept adding more and more and now I don't really think I like it...it's a little overdone. What do you think? One of our new kittens loves it. She just wants to eat the fluffy white feathers.

For my card I used
Bad Hare Day a rubber stamp from Krista Smith
Skin E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair and shoes C9, C7, C5, C3, C2, C1
Clothes BG18, BG15, BG13 and R85, R83, R81
Shadows BV00, BV0000
Paper My Minds Eye - Life of the Party and Echo Park - A Walk in the Park
Roses (edged with pink spica) and white seam binding ( I coloured with BG18) from Wild Orchid Crafts
The flourish and corners were cut with my silhouette.
Make sure you add your Easter creations we'd love to see what your making. 
If you want to see a photo of our new kittens head over to my blog.
