Happy Easter Sweetie

Hey there!

Yesterday I managed to get my March start-to-finish card videos done and just in time too!
With the Easter holiday getting closer and closer I thought that it would be fun to create an Easter card this time around. That and I kinda wanted to play with these new Doodlebug papers that recently arrived in my mailbox. ;)

When it came time to choose a stamp to ink up for this one I actually skimmed past the actual Easter images and was instead drawn to this sweet Country Lula from CC Designs. How easy would it be to transform her into an Easter cutie simply by coloring her gathered eggs in various dyed colors? So I colored her up to match the Doodlebug papers and proceeded to put it all together.
If you would like to see how it all came together you can watch the videos here, here and here or find them over on the Color Me Copic blog. It's a pretty simple design but I thought that was best considering how busy and bright DB prints can tend to be and I didn't want to pull focus from Lula.

Ok, well that's all I've got for today... smooches! :)

OMG I have been soo busy when I have been off from work between Brooke, the new puppy, relatives in town visiting,& have had to make a lot of Bday cards, still getting Thank You cards done from Brooke's 6th Bday party...I made her write them all out on the insides. That is VERY time consuming!!
Well have an Awesome day!

I love the idea of making Country Lula into an Easter Girl, so easy to do but I probably would've never thought of that! Saw your videos on this card and loved watching it all come together!TFS!

A very, very sweet and pretty Easter card, Amy! That Doodlebug paper is so pretty with all the spring flowers in soft pastels, and your Country Lula is just perfect! Look at how tiny those eggs in her basket and pocket are...and you color so neatly!!!

Ok my friend, your videos and your post should come with a warning. I'm thinking something like "Caution, this could be hazarous to your wallet!" lol... I loved watching your videos and I love, love this paper, so when I found it on Twopeas I just had to buy some. I just got it in the mail today and I can not wait until tomorrow to play with it. Have a great weekend. hugs, Lisa

RiNNE said...

I think you secretly own a scrapbook store at the back of your house, huh? How else would you be able to choose these fabulous papers :)? Awesome Easter card, Amy!
