Easter Cards With The Cutting Cafe

The Cutting Cafe has the funnest Easter files! 
I had to stop myself from making any laundry was screaming my name. Sigh...

I made 3 cards with the Easter Overlays and Shaker Card Templates

I LOVED how simple and cute this egg shaped card is. 
I used the flowers that were cut out of this egg to make another card. They were just too cute to toss.

The dots used for the center of the flowers are pony beads that I melted in the oven.
I have been on a make your own embellishment kick lately. I have been working on some others that I will show you in a later post, so stay tuned.  

Last one with this file...(I think this one is my favorite) 

Most people who know me know I LOVE frogs. I always have. When I was 19 I got a frog tattoo. 
My dad was not very happy about that! Anyways, When I saw this 

stamp at the local stamp store I HAD to have it! I also bought the sentiment stamp that went with it...
"I toadally hope you feel better soon"
That same day I picked up the goodie pack for the next card contest...the theme is Easter. One of the rules is I must use a stamp from the store. Well, I didn't really see any Easter stamps that I, I decided I'd try to make this frog stamp into an Easter stamp to go with the theme. I stamped the image on paper and then drew bunny ears on it. I love the way it turned out! 
I copied the image in my scanner/printer/copier and enlarged it to 225%, printed it out and fussy cut it. Then I colored it with Spectrum Noir markers. 

I shrunk the shakers down to a size that looks good with the frog. I absolutely love Regina's shaker cards! They are so addicting!
 I use micro beads to fill the eggs. 

For the next card I made I used the Egg Shaped Card file. 

This card is perfect for using up some scraps. 

Last but not least, I used the Wheelbarrow Deliveries  file. 

I love this file too! 
I used grass from the Disney Pooh and Friends and the Spring Seasonal Cricut Image Sets.
The eggs are from Easter 2010, Teresa Collins Easter Basket, Happy Easter, and Easter Magic Cricut Image Sets.
