HAPPY EASTER with Muse # 63

to all of you!

Before I go on with this post I just wanted to let you know that I am on vacation in Boulder for this week and I am taking a little break from blogging.......but I'll catch up with everything once I'll come back!

I am playing again at the Muse. The amazing Therese Calvird is providing inspiration for us - her wonderful card is below, further down. I knew immediately what to use for my card. I have this Sizzix embossing folder, which has a similar pattern as Therese's card. I swiped  the embossed panel with different colored green inks. to give it some ombre effect. 

The bunnies are IO, the banner is from Avery Elle and he stamp is an ancient woodblock stamp from Repeat Impressions. I gave the bunnies some eyes made with liquid enamel and a black marker. 
they look better that way. 

And just for the fun of it I am linking this with Simply Create Too - no digis or stamped images - there is still a couple of days left to link up your cards!
I am also linking this card with Simon Says - Animal Antics
and Steckenpferdchen - Ostern/Easter

Here is the inspiration card:

I am also linking my card with the Die Cut Divas, see inspiration photo:

 - its mainly green an d has two animals looking at each other in it....


And now I wanted to share two cards I got. This is from my blogging friend Susanne from Keep in Touch! Such a pretty Easter card. I always wanted to make an easel card - great inspiration! 

And this wonderful CAS perfection I got from Anita in France from My Papercraft World

She also send me a pack of this wonderful paper she uses  - it has a subtle texture and ahhh feels so good! There is a touch of sparkle on this card - I guess wink of Stella....
Thanks Susanne, thanks Anita - I just love all those friends I have been making through paper crafting and blogging - I has been so wonderful!

Love the way you added the color to the background with the embossing folder - at first glance I thought you used a stencil & modling paste (and I also like the bunnies with eyes).

What a cheery fun Easter card and such a clever idea to ombre on an embossing folder (I had totally forgotten this technique lol.

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
