Easter Wishes

This Sunday is Easter!  Christopher has been talking about hunting for M&Ms and dying eggs all week! We're going to try dying our eggs naturally with foods like blueberries, beets and spinach. I've wanted to try this for years and recently found a link on Pinterest for some recipes from Annie's Eats.

In honor of Easter, I made a couple cards to share with you using one of my favorite Bella Blvd. collections called Spring Things & Easter Things.


I paired this lovely line of brightly colored papers and accents with one of my favorite Papertrey Ink dies called Tiny Tags. There are so many great tag shapes included on this die plate!


These Bella Blvd. paper designs and colors have Easter and spring written all over them! My favorite pattern is the floral that I used as a background frame.



This next card uses the same great Bella Blvd. papers with another Papertrey die.


I purchased this gorgeous die quite a while back, but my Wizzard couldn't cut all the intricate detail, even with a cutting plate adaptor. Then I found an adaptor for my Big Shot that works with thin metal dies and it works! Ah...sweet success!


What an adorable rabbit, perfect for an Easter card focal point! I placed him on top of layered dies and stickers to give the card dimension.

I hope you and your family and friends enjoy a lovely Easter this Sunday!

These cards are just DELIGHTFUL! I have dyed eggs with natural dyes before and loved the results. Onion skins work well, too...either a pale yellow or a lavender depending on what onion you use.

Such happy cards! Love that sweet paper and love your designs. The swag lines of all those tiny tags is just SO fabulous. Love the quatrefoil die, too.
Hope you two have fun with your egg dying. Nik and I did some eggs today using drizzled rubber cement and neon food coloring. Was different and fun. :_
