Easter Express Collection: Creative Easter Cards by Mendi Yoshikawa

Hello Doodlebugs!  It's Mendi here today with a happy card set featuring the new Easter Express collection!  
Up first is a little card featuring the star of the show:  The little bunny with his train of supplies and friends.  I hand cut a wavy strip from the Easter Express Double Sided Cardstock and then stitched it on my sewing machine.  I then combined the doodle-pop for the locomotive with the cargo cars from the Icon Stickers to mix thing up and add some variety.

For my ext card I wanted to use some of the super cute carrot images from the collection so I created a garden using two basic scallop border punches and tucked in little carrots from the icon stickers.  For my bunny I used another Doodle pop sticker.  It just hard to resist all the cute layers they have.  I finished off my card by cutting a sentiment from the Springtime Stripe paper and adding one of the adorable carrot from the Easter Cute Clips.

For my next card I wanted to showcase the darling tree house from this collection.  Isn't it the cutest?  This card was made almost entirely from the odds & ends pack.  They're a bit bigger than the icon stickers so they are ideal for scrapbooking when you have a little more space to fill, but I made them work here, but making a slightly larger card.  I cut apart the fence from to continue it on both sides of my little scene and finished things off with some twine bows for my banner and a little So Tweet birdie sprinkle.

For this sweet thank you card I paired the Polaroid frames from the odds & ends pack with all the adorable critters from the icon sticker sheet, filling in the backdrop behind them with some of the smaller prints from the 6x6 paper pad.

For my final card of the day I couldn't resist using the darling sunshine and cloud shapes.  Those sweet faces are so irresistible!  I created a sunburst pattern using the lemon swiss dot petite prints with a sun ray die from my stash.
