Happy Easter

Happy Easter to everyone! Before I show you the cards I made I just wanted to share a bit of news with you ... I have just found out this weekend that I am going to be an Auntie! I am so happy for my brother and sister in law :0) So, on to the cards. They have all been made pretty basic as I just love the Elzybells NA images and I wanted to show them off. I have stamped each one then coloured them in with Copic markers. I have then cut them out with my Nestabilities dies and added them to the cards with 3D foam pads. The greeting is a stamp by A Muse. Apologies for the rubbish photo's some were taken very late at night!

STAMPS: Elzybells NA, A Muse. INK: Brilliance Graphite Black. CS: Papertrey Ink, Craft Creations, Bazzill. ACCESSORIES: Copic Markers, Spica At You glitter pen, Nestabilities dies.

{I have been asked about what I think of Copic markers. I have to say I really love mine HOWEVER I could do with a whole load more, but as they are quite pricey, I can't really afford them at the moment. It is a bit frustrating if I do not have the right colour. I also generally only use them on smaller images like A Muse or Stamping Bella as I haven't found the ability to blend with them YET! I hope this helps}

  20. Congrats to you and your family! Lovely cards and once again coloring.

    Those cup cakes looked yummy, but I settled for a French silk pie, made by DH (he makes a killer pie) :-)
