It’s Frances here and it is my turn to post a Pop it Ups Wednesday With tutorial for you today. With Easter being just over a month away, I thought it would be fun to share an Easter card with you all. I have used the Pop It Ups Hanging Charm Pull Tab die set along with Lucky the Rabbit and the basket from Props 7.
It’s time for our March Die Cut Design Team Designer Challenge. Our challenge this month is ‘It’s in the Box!’ We are going 3D this month, creating and decorating boxes using any of the 5 new box dies Elizabeth Craft Designs released in January.

Hi there! It’s Marsha here today, sharing a clean and simple Easter Eggs card!
Have you heard? The new coloured Soft Finish Cardstock has arrived and… it’s so, so beautiful!!!
I had to create something with it right away, otherwise I might hoard it and I’ll end up only petting it every once in a while.
There are so many things I love about this cardstock, but to name just one: it has one coloured side and one white side. This means you can do fun things with it, like using the coloured side to cast colourful shadows on a white card!
I like to make flat egg-shaped Shimmer Sheetz ornaments to send in my Easter cards. Sometimes I’ll use Elizabeth Craft Designs Easter Egg outline peel-offs as the starting point. This year it’s the new Joset Designs Easter Eggs die set that stole my heart.
As always, I’ve worked within a quirky color palette – Fire Opal, Australian Opal, Turquoise, and Ruby Gemstone and Bronze Metallic among my choices, but all of the eggs could be switched to bright hues or soft pastels. Shimmer Sheetz is available in over 20 colors including Iridescent in two shades of pink, white, purple, green, yellow, bright orange and red. An Iridescent Sampler Pack might be a fun way to have lots of choices.
Reminders: Shimmer Sheetz is waterproof and colorfast, as are the Glitter Dots and other peel-offs used for the eggs. These ornaments (except for the strawberry eggs) can be hung in the garden as well as displayed indoors. A Metal Adaptor Plate or Precision Base Plate is required for die cutting Shimmer Sheetz.
It’s Frances here with today’s project. With Easter being only a week away, I decided to create an Easter card using Joset Designs Easter Eggs die set and the Els van de Burgt Studio Stitched Rectangles. I couldn’t help but add some green to my card using the new Through the Lens Wood Series 6×6 cardstock.
Hi there! It’s Marsha here today with a fun Easter craft that you can easily do with kids!
Easter brunch is a tradition in my family and we tend to have the same festive foods on the table each year. I usually buy a bunch of spring-coloured paper napkins to put on the table, but this year I thought it would be fun to decorate cotton napkins with fabric paint.
Good Morning. This is Selma Stevenson today with my first Easter card of the year. Children always look forward to coloring eggs and are excited to discover the ones that were hidden by the Easter Bunny. I had fun creating a lot of different eggs using the Joset Designs’ Easter Eggs dies. There are eggs in three sizes and three overlays so you can create a variety of pretty eggs.
Hi, it’s Candy! It’s almost Easter and I love Easter eggs. They provide a blank canvas with so many possibilities. For these eggs, I started by painting paper-mache eggs. You can see how I did it here but you could use colorful plastic eggs or eggs made from glass or plastic. Get the kids involved and have fun!
1. For the base: Place the bottom of the grass die (from the Outdoor Edges set) 1/4″ from the bottom of the cardstock and die cut.
2. Add a small strip of Transparent Double-Sided Adhesive to one edge as shown above, roll and adhere to the other end.
3. For egg 1 (in front): Apply a strip of Transparent Double-Sided Adhesive to go around the egg as shown above. Coat with Silk Microfine Glitter in a color of your choice. (Shown: Fire Opal). Polish and wipe off excess.
4. Die cut small flowers from the Bunch of Flowers die out of white cardstock. Ink with red ink as desired. Adhere to egg.
5. Add a Glitter Dot in a color of your choice to the center of each flower. (Shown: Gold/Silver).
6. For eggs 2 & 3 (in background): Adhere Glitter Flowers to the eggs in a color of your choice. (Shown: Transparent/Gold.)
