I’m a few hours late posting today but I was waiting for the temps to rise and the sun to come out. It’s afternoon and neither has happened. So what’s happened to March going out like a lamb? In fact, we’re getting more rain here in the Boston area. But I’m determined to be optimistic so I’m sharing today my Easter, Spring and Passover cards. I got some guidance from my friend, Robin, as to proper depiction of Passover so I hope you like what I’ve done.
I’ll start with Passover which begins April 20, 2019.
These cards were made from dies and cardstock from my stash, free graphics via the internet and printed sentiments I designed on my computer. Lots of blue and gold.
For those, like me, who celebrate everything, I couldn’t resist this Rabbi/Bunny! I love it!!!
And, what’s better than Matzah?
This year Easter is on April 21, 2019.
My Easter cards were made by using items from my stash along with some computer graphics I designed. I cut the peeps using my Scan n Cut and used a face stamp to give them character. I designed the word background and sentiments on my computer.
Die cuts and punches made easy work of this card.
Here, again, I used my Scan n Cut to cut out the bunnies and an embossing folder for the background.
This adorable bunny is stamped and watercolor using a very old bunny stamp. I loved it when I purchased it and I still do!!
Another older die set for the chicks, grass, and clouds, an all-time favorite.
And, of course, Spring arrived on March 20, 2019.
These spring cards were made using the February 2019 Spellbinders small die of the month. The card is held closed using a band which is removable to open the card. Yikes, tons of die cutting but the end results are worth the effort.
These last 3 Easter cards are for my younger grandchildren. They were made using the Spellbinders March 2019 small die of the month. I stenciled the sunshine and sunray background using a handmade stencil.
It’s a nice change to get into making cards for warmer weather occasions. All the colors are so bright and cheery and a sign that better days are coming….. in my case, I can only hope.
Spoiler alert: May and June are busy months for celebrations so I’ve been working on cards for Mother’s and Father’s Day, wedding, and graduation all which are quickly approaching. I better get to making more cards!!!
Until next time,
