A Blessed Easter

The Craft's Meow

Welcome to our monthly blog hop at The Craft's Meow!  Today we're featuring our stamps with a theme of Easter or encouragement.  You should have arrived here from Julie's blog.  If you'd like to start at the beginning, just go to The Craft's Meow blog for a list of the blogs participating.  I made 2 cards today, both using our new Easter Blessings set, designed by Karen Baker.  

Have a Blessed Easter

This card uses coordinating papers from the Doodlebug Designs Hello Spring pad.  I clear stamped and white embossed the darling little lamb and then just added the sentiment trimmed into a banner.  

Easter Greetings

I used more of the Easter Blessings sentiments on this card, pairing them with the beautiful flowers from Hope Blooms,  and used a springy aqua and yellow color theme.  These papers are BoBunny Mellow Yellow and Lasting Impressions Seaside Checks.  I kept my flowers white and added a seam binding bow anchored with a yellow button.
