CMCC#60 - Happy Easter

Hello friends!

It's time for another challenge at Colour Me...! and these colors are bright and beautiful.

I can't get enough of the all the new products from the newest Lawn Fawn release. I knew that for all of these bright colors I had to think Easter. It is right around the corner so it's only right. I reached for the new Eggstra Special Easter and my Copics. 

I started with a top folding card base using Whisper White card stock from Stampin Up. I cut another piece slightly smaller and used an embossing folder with polka dots. Next I die cut a large banner flag from Lawn Fawn out of paper from their brand new 6x6 paper pad called Pint Sized Patterns Beachside. I added some white bakers twine thru the two holes at the top of the banner. Next I stamped the Easter basket out in some Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored with my Copics and die cut the basket with my Big Shot. I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black ink as I wanted a very crisp look. I added my Wink of Stella glitter marker to the eggs for some bling. The banner and basket were popped up on foam dimensionals. 

It was a fun card to make and I love the simplicity of it. All of the colors together are beautiful.
I hope you can find some time to join us this week.

Thinking of You


Today's card is showcasing some new stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn and some older stamps and dies from Simon Says Stamp. I love that you can incorporate any of your stamps together. 

I am a tulip girl. I have always loved how they look and smell. I knew I had to have the new LF Eggstra Special Easter set when I saw the tulip. I imagined this card instantly and I'm so happy with the way it turned out. I don't which is more my favorite though. I love the water color of the sky and the grass. It gives the card such a soft look. 

I am finally getting more comfortable with my Copic markers so I decided to make my flowers any colored I wanted. The placement of my clouds and sentiment was the hardest part of this entire card. I finally decided to go with less clouds and a bigger sentiment. 

You can't really see if from the pictures but I added my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to all the flowers and clouds to give them some extra bling. 

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you've found some inspiration in today's cards. As always, the products used will be listed and linked below. Have a great day!
