Easter Projects

I have a trio of cards for you today. I made these cards March 2011 for the Christian Paper Crafts private online gallery. CPC has since been purchased by Our Daily Bread Designs, and it's been a year since I made these projects, so I think I can share them with you. (I am pretty sure the private gallery closed after October 2011.)

None of these cards is in a vintage style. They are in what I call my "Copic Style." A girl needs to keep people guessing! Right?!

I colored the flowers and the jar with Copics, then fussy cut everything.  My favorite flowers are red and white tulips! Mostly because they were my dad's favorite. He used to dream of going to Holland to see the tulip fields. He never did make the trip. Maybe someday I'll go in his place.

I colored this cute digital stamp with Copics. I adore this little girl. And her bunny.

I don't often use blue and orange, but this combo was so pretty together, soft and sweet.

The scripture is from Our Daily Bread Designs. I love their scripture stamps!

I even decorated the inside of this card. I normally decorate the inside of cards that I plan to use. The ones I make for DT work sometimes get glued closed for display purposes, so I don't always jazz up the insides.

And another cutie image, colored with Copics. Love me some Copics!

I even used Copics on the flowers, so that the purple would match.

Hope these projects give you some Easter hope and inspiration!
