I knew I had to have the “My Peeps” stamp set the moment it was released in the new catalog. It has been sitting in my craft room just waiting for ink! I figure it is now or never if I am going to get Easter cards stamped! The card is based on the sketch this week at Mojo Monday. The challenge this week is your choice of round or square. I really enjoyed the last round card I did, so I decided to try my hand at another. Here is the original sketch-
Don’t get too attached to the paper that the card is made with! I attended the American Crafts warehouse sale in Utah last year and picked it up for $1 a pack! WooHoo, who can beat paper packs for $1.00. The paper was meant to be a baby kit, but I thought the muted pastel colors worked perfect for an Easter Card. All shapes with the exception of the grass have been cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.
I encourage everyone to think outside of the box with their crafting supplies. I made my cloud background with a scallop border die. My grass is actually an icicle border turned upside down.
Did you know you can manipulate the Close To My Heart stamps to a different shape? I transformed the wavy Happy Easter saying to a curved saying for my circle. I then selectively inked the saying to make it two parts! I combined three colors of twine to bring all of the colors in the card together. I paper pieced the eggs in the same paper and added details with a white gel pen.
