You color my world!

Hi everyone,

Hope you all had a very nice Easter and are not too much on a chocolate overload high!!
Today's card is for the current 'Come Rain or Shine' Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp here.
Perfect day to post this card as it is pouring rain outside today after having such a gorgeous Easter Sunday yesterday of 16C.

Here's my card:

I started by stamping the umbrellas one on top of each other and watercolouring them using Zig Clean Color real brush pens in a rainbow design.

I then masked off all the umbrellas and applied Translucent embossing paste using a SSS stencil. Once dry I added the sentiment, some washi tape down each side of the panel and finished it off with matching sequins and that's my card for today.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!

LF Easter goodie bags

Hi everyone and Happy Easter,

Well Easter is upon us so I couldn't resist making my goodie bags again using the Lawn Fawn die.
I just love applying different paper designs to the front of each little bag and stuffing them with lots of chocolates eggs and such and sealing them with decorative ribbon. Even though I don't eat chocolate (instant migraine) I still love making these and giving them away to family and friends.
Oh well, there are jelly beans and jujubes that I can munch on!!!

Here are a few of the bags that I created.

Plaid Easter bunnies

Hi everyone,

Well it's been a while but I do have a couple of cards that I created for my 2 little nieces for Easter.
Both cards were very quick and easy to create using Lawn Fawn stamps and paper and some new My Favorite Things die-namics dies.
I just love the new paper pack from Lawn Fawn. The colours are perfect for Easter and Springtime!

I created the background by dry embossing the frame. Then I die cut the background panel with the patterned paper. I adhered the patterned paper panel to each card and used 2 different style frames to highlight the bunnies. The bunnies were heat embossed using white embossing powder and stamped on dark brown cardstock. I added a little glitter to each one and covered the entire bunny with clear Wink of Stella for a little extra shimmer.

Hope you like them and thanks for stopping by.
