Hippity Hoppity Easter’s On It’s Way!


Hi everyone,

It’s time for another Pretties Wednesday Challenge over on the Paper Pretties Blog. This week we were challenged to use Spring as the inspiration for our card.

Technically it isn’t Spring down here in Australia when Easter occurs, but Autumn. But seeing it is Spring up in the Northern Hemisphere I figured I would pull out my Paper Pretties Hippity Hoppity Sophia stamp set.

I started my card by layer on some blue designer paper and then some green designer paper. The green designer was cut into a curve and then I used my sewing machine to add zigzag stitching to the edge of each layer.

The tree was printed and cut using my Imagine Cricut machine and the Nursery Tails Cartridge. The flowers were created using a Martha Stewart Border Punch.

Want to play along with us:

How to Enter: If you would like to play along with us, all you have to do is create a card/project using the above challenge and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword PWC146.

Don’t forget to include a link to your card on the Paper Pretties Blog, so everyone can see it too. You don’t have to use Paper Pretties stamps to play, but of course if you have them we would love to see you use them. One random participant will receive a Paper Pretties Stamps set … see the Paper Pretties Blog for more details.
