AYSI81 and FF 61 for Easter


Happy Saturday, everyone!  We have a busy day—we are headed to the circus in Baltimore!  So I made a few last-minute Easter cards yesterday for my small group members using the As You See It sketch for this week:


as well as the colors from the Fab Friday challenge:

I recently found a lovely blog called The Paper Caper, and Jess had a tutorial for making a little diecut cross using the Little Letters dies.  You can see it here.  I used her idea, but I used the smaller Chalk Talk die and backed the cross with SU’s Gold Foil:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Gold Cross Easter Card Stampin Up

I made five of these, using pastel shades for the die and flowers; I used images from Kinda Eclectic, Summer Silhouettes, Bordering Blooms and some of them had Gorgeous Grunge as well.


I did some heat embossing in gold, using the Easter sentiment from the retired set, Delightful Dozen:


I used the sunburst from Kinda Eclectic on the inside as well, along with a sentiment from God Bless II:


We did some egg-dying on Thursday, but first she had to peel one of the cracked ones:





and of course, she had to try to dye her peeled egg as well, LOL!


Be sure to come back tomorrow for our next Paper Players challenge!

Gorgeous card LeAnne! Clever use of the little letters Thinlits but I love how you incorporated it into your card. Cassidy's eggs look good too, all except the last one lol! Enjoy the circus - I haven't been to one in years!

I love following your blog and all of the activities of Cassidy. Your Easter card is beautiful.. It's so bright and full of spring. Cassidy did a wonderful job coloring eggs. I like the peeled egg that is colored.... would be great for deviled eggs!

Such beautiful Easter cards LeAnne. I love the little die cut cross and the gold foil backing. Your choice of stamps and the placement of them is perfect.
Looks like a fun egg colouring session;)
