A Crafty Secrets Easter . . .

Hello my friends and Happy Saturday to you!

For years now I have LOVED anything CRAFTY SECRETS!  I enjoy the more 'vintage' style of cardmaking and Crafty Secrets has some fabulous products along that line.  For Easter you can find everything from CUTE to RELIGIOUS, Clear Stamps to Digital Stamps, and much much more!!

Today I'd like to share a couple more cards I've made to send along to my family this Easter holiday.  All three cards were created with images from the DAS-109 Easter Blessings digital download.

 This is a Gate Fold card and both the image on the front & the inside are on this download.  I did just a touch of coloring on the front image flowers using my SN alcohol markers.  Other products used are: Cuttlebug 'swirls' embossing folder, pink satin ribbon, Kaiser pearls, and Marianne LR0235 die set.

 The next two cards use the same image/sentiment from the DAS-109 Easter Blessings digital download.  The design papers used on this first card are from the Crafty Secrets 'Earthy' paper pack.  Other products used are:  K&Co. 3d butterfly, gold organza ribbon, Verses rubber stamp (inside sentiment), Distrezz-it All, Tim Holtz 'Tea Dye' distress ink

For this last card creation, I've used the same image (colored differently) and made a Sympathy card vs Easter.  The inside sentiment uses rubber stamps from DRS Designs (crosses) and The Stamp Pad Co.  The ribbon is from Michaels and the  pink and black pearls are from Want2Scrap.  The polka dot design paper used on this card is from Webster's Pages.

Here are a few challenges I'd like to enter:
Digi Haven - Easter
Polkadoodles - Easter
Simply Create Too - Easter or bunnies
