It's almost Easter and I can't wait to create more Easter projects. Even though, I don't celebrate Easter in the traditional, religious way, I think it's a perfect holiday to celebrate the beginning of Spring and all the happy and good things we have in our lives :) I love to use pastel colors for Easter and the new Hippity Hoppity collection has just the right mix of cute colors.  This time, I decided to create two cute cards, using the stamps and dies, glitter, sequins and my favorite patterned paper from the collection.

I don't use stamps very often and since I prefer to create layouts, I'm not used to use them. But the stamps and matching dies in the collection are so cute, that I thought I absolutely needed to use them.  So I started by stamping out the images that I wanted to have for my cards, with black ink and then I painted them using watercolors.

While those were drying, I cut out rectangles from white cardstock and my favorite patterned paper from the collection. I splattered some paint on the white cardstock to create texture and interest on the background, then I adhered it to the patterned paper. When my little icons were dry, I cut them, using the matching dies. 

To give the little critters a cute little touch, I added some glitter to some parts of the bodies and to the bow on the basket of eggs. It's looks amazing... I LOVE holographic glitter!! :)

While that was drying, I adhered my background to card bases in blue and pink, that I had created using Doodlebug cardstock. I then thought that it needed more detail and I decided to stitch all around the white cardstock, using a color changing, pastel thread. 

I added my little images to the cards using foam squares, to make them pop, and also added a sentiment from the Chit Chat die cuts.  Finally, I stitched on some sequins with a French knot. 

I really love how the cards turned out.  They are super simple, but the stitched border, glitter and sequin details, make them look so cute and perfect.  Thank you so much for stopping by and I really hope you like the cards and are inspired to create some too.
