Hi crafty friends, Katie here with todays blog post. I created this cute card last year but never posted it and with Josets cute critters being on sale for 25% off this week, I thought it would be a good time to post this cute Easter Card.
Start with cutting out your bunny, basket, eggs, carrots, leaves and flowers from your favorite card stock. I inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, and assemble.
Next, I cut my card base and layers from the stitched rounded squares #1702. The background I inked the edges with some yellow ink, next I layered my card bases together. I adhered my basket, eggs, branches, flowers and pop-dotted my bunny and white flowers.
Last step: I always love to speckle, this time I speckled with Vintage Photo Ink.
I hope you enjoyed todays post and it brought you some inspiration.
Hello everyone Jackie here today, spring has arrived at last so I am sharing this cheerful fun happy spring card using a mix of dies from Joset and new dies from Annette Green.
Trim a panel of white card to 5 x 3.75″ and ink blend in the centre using Distress Oxide – tumbled glass.
Stamp out the sentiment toward the bottom, here I have used Versafine Clair ink morning dew.
Die cut the daisies from set 2027 Stemmed Flowers then snip them apart. Add a yellow inked centre and a little green ink on the leaf ends.
Add the flowers to the prepared panel, glue a few flat and a few with a foam pad for texture.
Add two grass edges die cut from set 2022 Lace Borders, glue one directly over the stem ends then add the other just below using tiny foam pads.
Die cut and build the bunny using set 1929. Use pink card adding pink ink around the edges, use a black fine liner and white gel pen to add features to the bunnies face.
Fix the bunny in place adding another daisy in the bunnies hands to finish.
Thank you for stopping by today, I hope I have inspired you today using one of my favourite character dies. You will be able to purchase Annette Greens new collection Everything’s Blooming at your favourite ECD stockist.
Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here. Easter is coming up soon, so I wanted to share with you a cute Easter card for inspiration.
Cut and assemble the head of the bunny from the Bunny die set. Assemble the body but do not attach to the head. Cut leaf circles from the Planner Essentials Iris Shutter Add-on die set in two shades of green cardstock. Using the double leaf die set, cut darker green cardstock. Using the single leaf circle, cut a lighter green cardstock. Cut a circle from the Stitched Circles die from light blue cardstock. Cut a card base from one of the green cardstocks used for the leaves. Cut a circle from the Dotted Scalloped Circles die set. Cut a rectangle from white cardstock using the Stitched Rectangle die set. Cut a rectangle from patterned cardstock from the Fitted Rectangles die set. Cut flowers from the Easter Basket die set out of yellow cardstock and their centers from white cardstock. I used 2 of the three flowers in the set. I have cut them each 7 times. Cut the word Easter from the Planner Essentials 23 die set from the same green cardstock used for the base . Cut and stamp “Happy” on white cardstock using the Sentiments 1 stamp and die set. I like to use the negative from the die cut to create a template that I can use to place the sentiment to assist in lining up the stamp with the die cut. This step can save lots of time if making multiples.
Instructions: Using a stylus or back of a paint brush, shape the flowers that was cut from yellow cardstock and adhere together. Adhere the white centers to the middle of the flowers.
Using the single leaf die, cut the body of the bunny. This will allow for the perfect edge to line the bunny up in the up coming steps
Adhere the light blue circle to the double leaf circles. The interior leave allow for the circle to be glued easily.
Adhere the single layer leaf die cut to the blue circle. Adhere the bunny body to the light blue cardstock, aligning the edge with the green leaf layer that we just glued down.
Adhere the bunny head to the body.
Adhere the Dotted Scallop circle towards the top of the patterned cardstock layer. At the bottom of the layer, adhere “Easter”
Adhere the leaf layer to the center of the scalloped circle. Also adhere the “happy” sentiment the card layer
To finish off the card, adhere the yellow flowers around the leaf circle. Attach the patterned cardstock layer to the Stitched Fitted Rectangle cardstock layer. Once completed, adhere those layers to the card base.

Hello everyone, Alice here again! Today I would like to show you another creation. It’s been sunny here all week so I felt like getting started with colors. I just love to work with a lot of color! This time I chose the cute bunny along with the easter eggs.
Behind the bunny is a shaking area. I used very nice shaking material for this. This contains small bunny’s. I love shaker material. Have a hole box full of it. I absolutly love it when it matches the animals. This shaker material is from Picket Fence. They combine perfectly with the characters.
I put the shaking material in a transparant bag. Close this well with clear double sided adhesive tape.
To nicely hide the shaking part I used the frame the floral burst background die (1801). You punch this out twice. You use part of it as a background. The second part is made into a frame. You cute out the middle part at 0.5 cm from the edges. In between you can confirme your shaking part.
On top of this you make the floral burst background part. This way you have processed your shaking part very neatly. For this creation I die cut the background die out of yellow cardstock.
After this I started working with the bunny and the decoration. This time I made everything out of colored cardstock. I did edit the edges with ink. Normaly I color everything with ink. Bute today I wanted to use the brighter colors of cardstock. This bunny is wearing his beautiful bow again today. I made these from the same paper as the background of the whole.
The bunny is sitting comfortably in the grass. Here also some nice easter eggs and of course tasty carrots for him.
Above the bunny a colorful bow of hemp cord. These in the same color as the shaking material and the easter eggs.
Behind this part another cheerful checkered design paper. Again in the same colors. Finally made this entirely on silk finish cardstock.
This was my creation this time. I hope it makes you happy as I do.
It’s going so fast this year, the days, weeks are flying by. Unfortunately no family Easter brunch this year, last year also not, I do miss it. Luckily it is also very cozy together with the children and we had a very nice Easter party.
It has become a double page again, which I like best for an overview.
Here the flaps are closed, I love these pages!
For the right page I used the Sidekick Essentials 10, around which I folded the wave pocket page, also from the sidekick collection. The large pocket is on the back, which I can use for a next overview. The sentiment “Happy Easter” I made with the alphabet from the Art collection. And Oliver (Tim Holtz) finishes this page. In the pocket there are 2 tags with photos and journaling.
The left page is made with the Sidekick Essentials 11 set. Behind the photo are some bunnies (Tim Holtz) and also one on the photo. I adhered the picture on the page before I put the reinforcements on it. That’s all this page needed.
I made the tags with the tag die from Planner Essentials 11. I like them oh so much! And that sweet bunny is an older Elizabeth Craft Designs die. Unfortunately no longer available but still so nice!! Especially………
That bun of the bunny…look how cute :-). This is the back of the tags with even more photos and journaling.
Both Oliver and the bunny are colored with watercolor paint.
Karen here today. I absolutely adore the Easter Bunny from Elizabeth Craft Designs. So adorable with options to use him from the front (as I have done today) or with the behind. Super sweet for Easter cards. If you make Easter cards and projects, there is now just a few weeks!
I started by cutting a piece of 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock in half to create a top-folding card base. Then I used the Stitched Rectangles die and a piece of paper from the Worn Wood Collection to create the card front. On it, I stamped Happy Easter in the corner using the Spring Sentiments Stamps and permanent Black ink. I also wrapped a piece of twine and used a scrap from the Reminiscence Paper Book across the top (and added a glimmer sticker too). To this, I used a small scrap from Reminiscence Paper Book and from the Mystical Winter Collection die cut with the Fitted Rounded Squares dies to “frame” the bunny. Then comes the FuN part!
I love putting together these adorable critters by Joset. It takes me back to putting together paper dolls as a child, so fun. For the pieces “on top”, I used 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to make putting the bunny together easier. I used 90 lb White Soft Finish cardstock and colored with Distress Inks in Antique Linen, Kitsch Flamingo, and Vintage Photo. the eyes are colored in with a black marker and the nose with a YR04 Copic marker.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Craftily yours, Karen

Easter is just around the corner so we wanted to give you some fun Easter project ideas today. Whether you want to create a special Easter page in your planner, make a card with our lovely Bunny or Spring Basket dies, or create a pretty Easter gift bag, we hope that the following projects created by our talented Design Team Members will give you some inspiration!
Our first project is this beautiful “hello sunshine!” card created by Sandy Diller who used the Spring Basket die set to decorate her card. For the bright background she used the Chevron Background die. Love this combination!
Next project is from Annette Green who made this fun Easter gift bag. She used the bunny head and carrot from the Bunny die set to decorate the tag and combined this with a beautiful rose flower from the Planner Essentials 6. Now time to start looking for some yummy easter eggs to fill this bag!
Marjolijn van Elsberg created a beautiful page for her planner using a combination of dies from the Planner Essentials line. Love the pretty chevron edge she created to her page. A great way to document special moments in your life.
Luciana Telesca used the Spring Basket and Bunny die sets to create this gorgeous soft colored card for Easter. For the word “Easter” she used the letters dies from the Blackboard Alphabet set. Love how she added the hat to the bunny.
Another great card using the Spring Basket and Bunny dies creates by Katelyn Grosart. Katelyn used soft pastel colors for her flowers and eggs that match perfect with the soft patterned background. Love the little bunny hiding in the basket.
Samantha Klaebe created this colorful card using the Little Chick die in combination with the grass boarder from the Tree die set. For the sentiment she used the “Happy hot chocolate season” stamp and removed the “hot” to create “Happy chocolate season”. How creative!
A beautiful elegant card from Tanja Kabel is up next. Tanja used the leftover parts of one of the eggs from the Elegant Easter Eggs Small die set and added some Metallic Gold Craft Drops for dimension. For the background, she used the Stitched Rectangles. A great idea for a quick and elegant Easter card.
Last but not least is this pretty card created by Karen Ostergard. Karen always knows how to combine elegant with cute! In this card she combines the elegant Mandala die with the cute Bunny. For the background she used the Stitched Rounded Rectangles.
