Sweet Stampin' - Easter

It's Sweet Stampin' time again. How's life been treating you? Are you enjoying the spring or you in the mist of the mist!!

I'm once again a happy bunny- yey, my holiday is booked along with my excursions.  My hubbie and I are going on another cruise in the middle of the year, and everyone assumes that we're planned a lovely warm weather one.....but nah!! Why be boring lol.  Nope, we're going to Alaska - we've planned to watch a Lumberjack show, a visit the glaciers, go whale watching, and visit a huskie puppy pound and go sledding with their mums and dads. So excited is an understatement.

Anyhoo, back to my Sweet Stampin' - our theme this week is Easter. 
Here's What I did
I used a 6 x 6 card base, and matted and layered it with some pretty lemon paper and doodled around the edge.  Then using my Die-namic die I cut out 2 squares (one in blue and one in green) and cut them in half, I re-joined 2 of the halves onto the page to make my sky and grass.  I stamped my 'Happy Easter' sentiment banner and coloured it with Copics and added glitter. From my brand new dies which are so sweet, I die cut a couple of pieces of picket fence and some clouds and attached them to the scene. My little Forever Friends bear was stamped 3 times, coloured with Copics, cut out and layered up. He was stuck onto my card along with the coloured and cut out little chicks. 

To finish off I die cut some flowers and plants (in reality these were made stamen and leaf dies) which I added them to the front along with some punched out butterflies. I wanted a clean and fresh look and hopefully I've achieved it..

Here's what I Used:
Stamp: Docrafts 'Spring Time', Crafty Impressions 'Spring Border'
Cardstock (CS)/Paper: White Neenah Colouring CS, Various Coloured CS
Copics:  Bear - E01, E50, E51, E53, R20, R30, C-0, C-1 / Chicks - Y000, Y00, Y17
Dies: MFT Die-namics 'Blueprint 3', Joy! 'Cloud', Tonic 'Circle Layering Die', Tattered Lace 'Embellishment Kit', Marianne Designs 'Picket Fence LR0205', Marianne Designs 'Poinsetta' 
Other: Fineliner Pen, Glitter, Butterfly Mini Punch

What a super-cute card! Love those pastel colours. Your holiday sounds amazing - no wonder you're excited. We're off to Seville on Monday. Really looking forward to it; I'm not too keen on flying so I'm just focussing on the wine and tapas to get me through it! Hugs, Tracey x
