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.
Thanks a million for stopping by.
Happy Paper Crafting
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.
I have made a quick video on today’s creation. Thanks for watching and your comments are much appreciated.

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.
Today’s card is all about the Easter. I played with my copics (which I am still learning to use) and my new Lawn Fawn Stampset “Eggstra Special Easter” and co-ordinating dies.
I have chosen 2 six by six paper packs – Lawn Fawn ” Let’s Polka” & Kaiser Craft “Happy Snaps”.
The chevron bow ribbon is crushed curry from Stampin Up.
Copics used are E25, E29, E33, E93,
YR07, YR14 YR15,
Y08, Y13, Y17,
RV06 & RV09,
V01 & C2
B06 & BG01
I have accented the bows on the bunny with Glossy Accents and brushed the eggs and hearts with Wink of Stella Clear to add a little shimmer.
I have used Chesnut Roan to stamp the sentiment and momento Tuxedo Black for the bunnies and eggs.
