HAPPY EASTER with Muse # 63

HAPPY EASTER
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).

Your card is fabulous Cornelia!
I love those bunnies too! Great use of the muse card!

Love your chocolate bunnies on your Muse card and I agree about that paper that Anita uses - when I received my thank you card from her this week I was amazed at how nice it feels! Thanks for joining us at Muse this week!

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