Basketful of Blessings

I did not get to do last week's OCC Challenge which was to to create an Easter theme card/project. So, better late than never, I did it today. I am in love with Taylored Expressions Sweet Spring Collection. Perfect for this challenge. The base of the card is Certainly Celery. The main image is stamped on Solar White with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copics. All of the rest of the papers and embellishments except for the rhinestone "cherry" on Cuppie's head are from Taylored Expressions Easter Key Ingredients. I embossed the brown layer with the Cuttlebug and the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. I love this time of year - it is full of hope and new life. Happy Easter!

Cupcake Easter

I love Taylor VanBruggen's [Taylored Expressions] designs and challenges. I recently bought a bunch of her stamps and some wonderful toys to go along with them. This card is for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #61. The base of the card is Very Vanilla. The next layer is from Taylored Expressions Easter Key Ingredients collection as is the patterned paper and the solid pink I used for matting. This adorable image from Sweet Spring is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Taylor's Choice Buttercream card stock and colored with Copics. Oh my goodness, this paper colors beautifully! It is FABULOUS! If you use Copic markers, order some of this paper today!! I used Cotton Candy Stickles to give the icing and the bunny's collar some sparkle. The brown and blue felt flowers are from SU's Flower Fusion, and the other flowers and petals are from Taylored Expressions Easter Key Ingredients. The brads are Soft Subtles from SU. Very cute!
