One more Easter card ...


Hi everyone.  One more Easter card that I finished late yesterday ... and just in time!  Hope everyone is having a wonderful Easter Sunday!

Today I used a sweet digital stamp set from my friend, Lisa Lara.  Lisa designed this adorable digi (available through Clear Dollar Stamps), and she sent me a copy of it a little while ago as her way of supporting me and cheering me up through the tough times that life has thrown at me over the past six months.  Thank you Lisa!!  I just love this adorable set ... and think the clicks are so sweet, especially done in polka-dots!  And they definitely brought a smile to my face ... so thank you for that too!



Stamps:  Peep Peeps (Lisa's Doodley Doos - Clear Dollar Stamps)
Paper:  White, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight, Polka-dot DP in Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery (SU!), Yellow Gingham (Making Memories)
Ink:  Soft Suede (for the sponging on the basket)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Square Lattice embossing folder (Sizzix for SU!), Pink Twine (The Twinery), Crystal Effects, sponge, glue, adhesives, and dimensionals



I paper-pieced this image, adding embossing to the basket and sponging with Soft Suede ink.  I added a strand of twine around the gingham "ruffle" before gluing it down.  The beaks are covered in Crystal Effects to give them shine and dimension. The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  I would have like to have rounded the corners to match the image, but my corner rounder broke just a little while ago and I haven't had a chance to replace it.


Here's a close-up of the image:
