As I was taking photos of some of the Easter/Spring cards I've made lately, I've realized that MOST of the cards don't have a whole heck of a lot of STAMPING on them.....it's mostly PAPER crafting. But with so much lucious paper to be had.....what's a paper-fiend (I mean...paper-lover) to do?
I used one of those plastic cookie cutters for my Easter Egg template (I pick them up as I see them, they're cheap and they work wonderfully well and while they are a bit more work than any die-cut method, I kinda like the process of cutting paper with scissors....it's weirdly soothing at times) and then kind of eye-balled the shapes for the carrot and carrot-top greens (used Martha's "fringe scissors to texturize the greens). Jumbo pinking scissors make for a great "cracked" egg look and then finished up with another Martha border punch (grass). The little bunny is the only stamped used (but he's pretty cute with his Stickled tail!!) and I popped him out with some foam tape. And finally, I just used plain ol' hand-writing for the sentiment (although I did write in a sparkly Spica pen.....)
