Easter Greetings!

Happy Saturday! I've got a bright Easter treat bag and tag as well as a few more cards to share with you before Easter.  These sweet digital stamp images from Pretty Cute Stamps were so fun to work with I ended up making lots of fun projects this week. Just check the last few days for more ideas on how to use the new March release stamps!

I always make a special treat bag up for my niece, Sydney, for Easter, and of course I wanted to decorate it! I took a gift bag and layered some papers on it before adding some images from the EGGSellent digi stamp set. Adding some foam dots on different areas always adds some interest.

I've been playing with my Distress Oxide Inks lately and had this tag in my stash just waiting for the right project! I used a stencil, adding some purple dots and used a bit of washi tape on the bottom before layering a sentiment from the digi set. Some pretty sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps  added sparkle to both my tag and bag. I absolutely love the little mini flowers <3

Next up, I made these three cards for my youngest daughter, Erica's, preschool teachers using the EGGSellent digi stamp set and colouring with Prismacolor and Hobby Colour Markers.

I used PicMonkey to layer the eggs, add the cracks and even colour the sentiment before printing them on a lightweight white cardstock.

I had some pretty Easter coloured papers in my stash and combined them to create a pretty card front. A few foam dots pop up different elements on the cards.

Inside, I used sentiments from the Pretty Cute Stamps Chocolate Bunny and Easter Blessings digi stamp sets. I print them all out of white cardstock at once and cut them out individually before using some Distress Inks to add some shading.

The last project I used the EGGSellent digi stamp set on was these quick and easy cards for some little family friends. Some pretty sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps adds a bit of bling! Aren't these colours beautiful?!!

I opened up a Project Life card (from the PL app on my phone that I had previously saved) in PicMonkey and then added the digital images from the Pretty Cute Stamps sets. By choosing the PNG version of each sentiment and image I was able to layer them, similar to a masking technique with traditional stamping. It really is very easy and fun! I changed the colour of the sentiments as well. When the stamps were layered as I wanted I printed them out, four to a page on white printer paper and glued them to my card bases.

Here's a look at the finished cards, with sequins and a bit of colour using coloured pencils on the bows.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Wishing you a very Happy Easter!!
