Easter Wishes!!

Happy Easter wishes to all celebrating today! We're expecting temps into the 70s F so looking forward to that!! Over at Die Cut Divas we're doing window cards with Poppystamps as our sponsor. Of course I had to go shopping! My "masterpiece" this year uses a new easel die set from Poppystamps but has nothing to do with the window theme... It went to my friend Heather (stamping and stitching) and her family. 

Supplies: Paper - Hero Arts (retired), Neenah, Paper Studio
Dies - Poppystamps Woven Basket Pop Up Easel Set,
Splendid Happy Easter, & Folk Decorated Eggs (retired)
Stamps - Lawn Fawn Eggstra Special Easter
Other - Copic Markers; 
Tumbled Glass & Pumice Stone Distress Inks

The stopper above the Happy Easter was borrowed from another pop-up easel set. I did several other versions but will only share a blue one. I added Taylored Expressions Backstory Easter Background to the blue sky behind the bunnies. It's a new stamp and I didn't have it when I made the first version.

Then I took a break from bunnies to do a sun ray background with lilies (from a retired Hero Arts clear set). I attended TE's online Stamp Joy event at the end of March and the sun ray stencil was part of the event kit. Had a wonderful time and made 11 cards. One was designed for multiples and we were given supplies enough for 4 cards; I just have to finish the other 3 for a total of 14 cards from the event. Sadly we can't share the class cards outside the class website but I made a totally different card with the supplies I purchased so I'll share that at some point. The sun ray stencil is called Here Comes the Sun - perfect for a Beatles lover!

When I cut the small rayed rectangle, I had enough left to cut a frame. I used it to build another bunny scene (I stamped a bunch of bunnies and die cut loads of Easter eggs!). For this one my grass was cut with Lawn Fawn's Grassy Border.

Since my easel die set got first play here, I'm adding card one to Darnell's April NBUS challenge.

Thanks for stopping and have a wonderful day!!
