A Happy Easter

Hi everyone and a Happy Easter to those who are celebrating today.  It is cloudy and chilly here today--certainly not warm for the pretty spring outfits people traditionally wear today.  But that doesn't stop most people, myself included.  We will be celebrating dinner with family later.  We had our traditional Easter breakfast with my parents today which included ham, potato salad, kielbasa, eggs, babka, and cake.  I'm certainly not ready to eat again for awhile today!

For Easter, I have two cards I made which both feature Pion Design's Easter Greetings paper.  I love the soft color palette of these papers.


For my first card, I wanted to showcase this beautiful Easter photo from Pion.  I adhered some ruffled lace and a string of pearls around the photo edges.  A piece of the Spring Fairies paper was placed onto white cream cardstock.  I fussy cut some flowers from the Cherry Blossom paper and glued them to the right side corners.  A Prima diecut doily was placed to the left of the photo.  An Easter egg was cut from the tag sheet and decorated with some trim.  Flowers from Wild Orchid and Spare Parts were used for embellishments as well as a couple of hemp bows.  The butterflies were also cut from the papers and highlighted with Stickles.  I gave a touch of gesso and Glass Bead Glitter Gel to the flowers.


My next card features Violet Field and Easter Basket papers.  This color palette is so pretty as well.


Again, a sweet tag from the papers is the focal point.  The leafy scroll is from Cheery Lynn.  The metal violet flowers are from Making Memories.  The lace trim at the tag bottom is Recollections.


Well, that's it for me today.  For those celebrating, I wish you a wonderful Easter holiday.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  I look forward to your comments and appreciate them so much.  Have a wonderful week ahead.

  5. Hi Patty: I've been absent again for a few weeks from blogging. So here I am in the wee hours of the morning, couldn't sleep, having a cup of tea and cinnamon raisin toast reading all the missed blog posts.
    Love, love your two new Easter cards - the purple shades are perfect for the holiday, and the image of the little girl & egg is so sweet. You have just the nicest touch with layers and embellishments! Happy Easter stamping friend! Sharon

  10. These are both such sweet cards, Patty! Love those vintage images and love the soft and pretty papers you used. Your details are just fabulous. Loving how you framed the first image with the trim, and love all the die cuts and layers and the pretty doily. Fabulous work with the fussy cutting, too.
