Happy Easter! :)

Published by at 10:57 am under Projects,Ranger,Sizzix

Hope all of you are having a fabulous Easter Sunday!  I’m looking forward to spending the afternoon with my family.  It’s always fun to spend time with my grandma, parents, siblings, nephews and cousins.

I made a little easter card to share with you today. 🙂

I love love love tim holtz’s distress stains… I don’t have to have a bunch of colored paper… I can take a white piece of cardstock and make my own colored cardstock.  So easy peasy! !:)

I am so addicted to stencils!  I love the lattice stencil from tim holtz. I apply a little tissue tape to the cardstock and stencil so that it doesn’t move around when I am applying the ink to the cardstock.

The mini ink blending tool is so perfect for stencil use.  Much easier to control to get into crevices.  And I love that you can kind of see through the stencil so you have an idea of where you are applying the ink…

But the REAL magic is when you take off the stencil… I always say “ooooh!  Aaaah!” whenever I take that stencil off.  LOL (really, I do…) (and even though my Lakers are out for the season, I couldn’t help but go with Laker colors. 🙂 )

Now, for the next part, I got so into the project that I forgot to take pictures.  LOL.

I used Mowed Lawn Distress stain on tim’s Tapered Fringe Decorative Strip Die.  Again, didn’t have green cardstock, so the stain was perfect.

I die cut the mini bunny out of brown cardstock and then applied Sparkly Fluff using  a 2-way glue pen.

And you can’t have an Easter project without some eggs… I love this 2-step stamping eggs in the Nature Walk stamp set.

I realized I didn’t have an lilac cardstock for the card base… so guess what I reached for… yup, the Lilac Stain….  And since you will be covering up most of the card, you only need stain on the outer edges.

Thanks for visiting today!  Here it is all put together. 🙂

Wishing you a happy Easter!



Oh…. I hope you are playing along in the Inspiration Emporium Egg Hunt.  (you can read the details here)  Hope you found my letter! 🙂  For the next letter, please visit Jennifer McGuire’s Facebook Page.

Happy Hunting!
