I started by making at batch of Easter cards with the My Favorite Easter 6" x 6" paper pack from Echo Park. The colours are so pretty it was difficult to know which sheet to start with first!
To make life easier I supplemented this with the matching ephemera pack of die cut pieces and a pack of Echo Park's My Favorite Easter 12"x12" Solids Paper Kit.
With this I created 14 cards using card making sketches to help with the card designs and I had enough scraps left over to make several more cards.
Whenever I make a batch of cards I prepare all my kit before hand to save time later. So, I started by preparing all my card bases and background layers from the solids paper pack.
I also die cut multiple flowers and tiny easter bunnies and chicks to use as embellishments. I've been trying recently to be more eco friendly with my choice of embellishments.
I used some odd dies from different sets and new purchase from Poppy Stamps called Potpouri Flower set.
With my last three cards as I was running out of large pieces of patterned paper I used my cover dies from Whimsy Stamps to use up scraps.
These sweet bunny images from Whimsy Stamps is one large stamp with four square images.
I stamped the images in brown ink for a more delicate outline. Some I coloured with alcohol markers and others with coloured pencils.
Out of the two mediums I prefer the coloured pencils as the effect is softer. Which one do you like best?
I also used some patterned paper and a cover die from Whimsy Stamps and a Happy Easter Die from Paper Rose.
The final card features two cute ducks from a Whimsy Stamps.
It was coloured with Polychromos coloured pencils and die cut with the pretty Spring Oval die set also from Whimsy Stamps.
