Happy Easter!

Hopefully the weather is holding up for the egg hunts! I'm in Eugene at my sisters...poor thing! She has a HOUSE FULL! Anyway, I made these Saturday morning before I left and wanted to share them with you! I've had my Out On a Limb set for a few weeks now and this was the first time that I got to use it! I can't believe I waited so long! The cardstock looks black, but really it is the darkest brown out of Bazzill Basics Monochromatic paper! I also used Certainly Celery and Purely Pomegranite. The sentiment was stamped on clear acetate with white Stazon. I wanted the words to show up bright and clear, and you don't always get that with textured paper, and especially not on dark paper, so this is what I came up with. I used the Cotton Candy (I think that is what it is called) Kaleidacolor specrum stamp pad.... it love the effect it gives the blossoms! I used Silver Liquid Pearls for the centers of the flowers. Here I used the clear acetate again....I think I'm going to be using this a lot!! I love how perfectly "clear" the sentiment shows up! Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, and Certainly Celery were the colors used here, a bit of a softer look than above! I wanted to do something a little different than my usual one strip of paper or ribbon, so I cut the paper to look like ribbon! Tricky Kisa! You can't see it, but the center of the dots are dotted with Crystal Effects, it gives it a bit of dimension. I used Nichole Heady's trick on the one corner being rounded and I LOVE it! These layouts were simple and quick.... I plan to try to remember them and use them for some quick cute cards!

I plan to be home Monday and I have two more cards to share that I made Saturday morning...these two were my fav. but the other two are cute enough to share!

Love them both! I just used my set for the first time this weekend too. Love it! Hope you had a terrific Easter. We are once again in the middle of a blizzard.
