Happy Easter Everyone!


Hope your having a wonderful weekend?

My hubby has gone to Rockingham Race Circuit today for a play in his motorbike with his friends so I am having a day playing too - not all day unfortunately.  But I am planning to do some brayering so bob back soon for some ideas on that!!!

Here are a couple of cards with a bit of an easter (well, sweet - LOL) theme.

This first card uses one of the Tiny Tags stamps and the medium Jewelry Tag punch and the chicks are from the Nursery Necessities set.  To make the card so the sweets can be taken out without damaging the front of the card I made a 'trapdoor' at the back. 

Cardstock - Yo Yo yellow, Gable Green & Only Orange
Stamp Set - Nursery Necessities, Tiny Tags
Accessories - Sweet Treat Cup, Pumpkin Pie ribbon, gold brad, small sweets, 1 3/4 Circle punch, Jewelry Tag punch, markers to colour in the chick image.

On this card I made a slider to remove the sweets, you just pull on a tab near the top of the card (on the inside).
The petals of the flower are Large Oval punched shapes, just cut in half with the ends of each petal curled to give some interest.  The stem is a length of ribbon with knots equally spaced and secured with tom bow glue.

Cardstock - Yo Yo Yellow, Gable Green, Only Orange, Always Artichoke.
Ink - Only Orange
Accessories - Large Oval punch, Word Window punch, Five Petal flower (for the leaves), Sweet Treat cup, Always Artichoke ribbon.

Thanks for visiting - hope you have a lovely Easter!



  1. They are lovely must get a treat cup made

  2. Love this treatcup, must do one with the trap door!


  3. Jan, this is great!! Can I case it?

  4. Great cards. I like the ribbon stem for your flower, very classy. And that trapdoor idea is so much easier to make than the slider - fab!
