Modern Easter Wishes + Coupon Code

When I was little, Easter was my most favorite holiday. Not only did I get a ceremonial dress - some foofy pastel something or other - but there was all the puzzle solving of an egg hunt, there was CANDY, and there were art projects in the form of dyeing eggs.

What more could the childhood version of me ask for??? One of my favorite photos that hangs in my house is of me and my childhood BFF David prior to church on Easter. He was Italian, and so his Easter attire included shorts and a little leather holster for his toy six shooter. I laughed right out loud typing that.

The world was a simpler place then.

ANYWAY - the imagery of Easter is so overwhelmingly positive, it's always been some of my favorite stamping fodder.

Baby bunnies and chicks and lambs - what's not to love?

So I'm bringing you an Easter card today that's unapologetically bright and happy, like I remember the Easters of my youth.

I started with the Sun Spots stencil, which I brushed Wild Dandelion, Bubblegum Pink and Seaglass inks through for the background. Then I stamped the lamb, bunny and chick from this set and cut the out with their matching dies, and BARELY colored them with Copics before gluing them down.

The sentiment Easter is from the same set they are from, and the Wishes is from this set. The Wishes set does come with an awesome matching word die. They are such a happy bunch.

Since it's Crafty Friends day - if you want anything from my beloved, smart, sweet, funny friend Gina - she was nice enough to give us a coupon code for you! You can get 20% off by clicking the banner and using code CRAFTYFRIENDS20 to shop!
