Craftie Cafe: Lawn Fawn Easter Cards

 

IMG_8069

Hi All and welcome to today’s blog post for the Craftie Cafe online store.  As you can see by my card creations I am focusing on Easter. Today I have used mainly Lawn Fawn  products as well as Distress Oxide Inks. I have done a very light water colouring on the bunnies but nothing complicated as I made these in bulk.

The most tedious part of the whole card process was the Lawn Fawn Quilted backdrop where I poke all the wholes out to reveal the colour cardstock I used as a card base.

I then heavily foam mounted little rectangles behind each quilted die as you will see in my You Tube video tutorial. I did not hold back with my foam mount adhesive through out these cards lol

 

 

Just how sweet are the Heart stack-able dies both the Lacey and stitched?  I love how these Lawn Fawn dies are well co-ordinated to nest within each other.

I colour coordinated the ink and the cardstock as I wanted to keep these simple yet sweet and able to make these in bulk. To do this I used the Ranger Distress Oxide Inks and ranger cardstock.

I plan to send these out to the in-laws for Easter as I wont’ be seeing them during this Easter time.

Do you send Easter Cards out? I would love to know what type of cards you make for Easter? I have lately to gravitated towards cute and sweet cards especially in the past couple of years where as before hand I use to make lots of florals or religious base Easter Cards.

Hi all, welcome to today’s blog post where I have made some adorable Easter treat bags.

These are super sweet and easy to make. These are for my kids to use  for our Easter egg hunt.

I have used mostly Lawn Fawn products for today’s creation.  I purchased from my local dollar tree store some craft paper bags and some shredded coloured paper to stuff these bags with and yes there is room for Easter Eggs also.

The cardstock from Lawn Fawn Rainbow collection was perfect for die cutting these chickies.

To add colour to the cheeks I have picked ink with a Fantastix bullet tip and dipped into the Lawn Fawn Ballet Slippers Ink. To highlight and add some extra details I have used a white gel pen.

I have used the Watercolor paper pad collection to die cut the Lawn Fan Fancy Scalloped Circles Stackable dies .  With the same paper pad collection I have also die cut the bows out to tie the whole project in together.

I have added some inspiration cuts from Lawn Fawn on how else to use these Lawn Fawn Happy Hatchlings dies.

Hoppy Easter

Happy Easter every bunny. Today I have played with the Lawn Fawn eggstra special easter stampset. I kept these tags super simple as I have made them for my kids. I asked “permission” from the Easter Bunny to  make these tags on behalf of the easter bunny to add them to their gifts.  Each year my kids either get PJ’s or a Cuddly bear / bunny or a little gift.  Each year we my husband and I try and make the gifts a as thoughtful as possible.

The tags are die cut from Reverse Confetti die set. All images have been coloured in with either Zig Clean Clear brush markers or blending pencils. Most products I have used have been purchased from Craftie Cafe.

I have entered these tags in the latest Simon Says Stamp Blog Wednesday Challenge.

Inspired By Stamping – Easter Gift Ideas

Hi All, Jo here welcome to today’s exciting blog post.

I love giving my creations away and especially to those that least expect it. This basket and coordinating card will going to one of the teachers at my kids school.


The basket was cut out with my Cameo silhouette.  Blushing Bride designer series paper and ribbon has been used for both the card and basket.

I have added a touch of Pool party colour to the basket by creating my own faux grass by cutting them into strips with the pool party cardstock and then running it through the crimper.
The stampset used is Easter Labels which co-ordinates with the Fancy Labels Dies 1.
To stamp the labels I have used Vintage Sepia Versafine Ink.  

The paper doily on the card has been heat embossed with pool party embossing powder.
For the lace border impression I have dry embossed with the Delicate Doilies embossing folder.  To embellish I have used the build a bow punch place in the centre of the blushing bride pleated ribbon.
I have used the corner rounder chomper on the top corner of the card to soften the edges of the card.
