Pastel Easter card – IPC#67

Inky Paws Challenge

Hello Everyone,

It is Monday again and time for the new inspiration for the Inky Paws Challenge #67. I just love any sketch with a tag involved.

After last week’s bright colours I made a pastel Easter card for today.


I started with stamping and colouring the cute little bunny and butterfly from Bitty Bunnies using Copic markers. I added some dots with my darker colours as well as some accents with a white gel pen. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.


To make a scene for them I used the Cloudy sky stencil and sponged pastel colours on Bristol Smooth cardstock. I used a tiny sponge dauber, in this way I could use many colours of Distress Inks.


The tag is from the Fancy edgesΒ tag die set, the grass I created with one of the stitched chevron accent dies in the set. The sentiment isΒ from Newton’s Easter basket. I tied a bow from twine on the top and popped up the critters with foam tape.


I die cut the stencilled background with a stitched rectangle die and I cut also 2 stitched banners from coordinating cardstocks to go behind the tag, which is popped up with 3D foam tape.


A tiny bit of Tonic Aqua shimmer and glossy accents finished it off. I hope you like my card and got in spring mood. Come and play along with us at the Inky Paws Challenge #67, it is open until Friday (16/03/2018). A random winner will get a 20USD gift certificate to the awesome Newton’s Nook Designs online store.

I will upload this card to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Whatever the weather and to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Girl Power.


Have a wonderful week and see you soon with more spring projects.

Hello Everyone,

A super quick post to show you how to make a sweet Easter card using digital stamps. I am using a cutie from Gerda Steiner Designs for their February challenge.


I printed and coloured the bunnies an cut them with a stitched rectangle die (MFT). I also die cut the Happy word (WPLUS9) 3 times: 2 black and 1 pink, and layered them on top of each other slightly off-setting the pink one to have a shadow.


I stamped an Easter sentiment under it from a Heffy Doodle stamp set.


I popped up my panel on a piece of pink gingham patterned paper an adhered it to a kraft card base. A bit of Tonic Aqua shimmer on the tulip, some white gel pen dots on the cheeks and black glaze pen on the eyes and my card was ready.



I will upload this to the Gerda Steiner Designs February Challenge and to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.
