Create with Connie and Julie CCJC7

Wow!  Where does the week go?  It's Saturday again and time for another Create with Connie and Julie Challenge!  Every Saturday on the  Create with Connie & Julie site we issue a challenge.  Our subscribers are encouraged to enter the challenge to win fabulous prizes!  Last week's challenge winners were Becky Graham, Lori Watson and Robin Gregor as honorable mention!  Congratulations, ladies!


For this week's challenge the theme is Easter Cards!  Our focus was on Stampin' Up!'s stamp set Eggcoutrements, Chocolate Bunny stamp, Spring Floral Wheel and the Eggcellent Egg Kit.  I chose to feature the Chocolate Bunny for my Easter Card!  I LOVE him!


I started with a base card of Certainly Celery, then used two different patterns from Tea Party Designer Paper.  I used the Scallop Trim Border Bunch along the top and the bottom.  I stamped the Easter Bunny in Vanilla Craft Ink, Close to Cocoa Craft Ink and Chocolate Chip Craft Ink, then embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and cut them out.  Of course, they represent the three types of chocolate…white, milk and dark!  Yummy!  They look real!   I wrapped some Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon across the top and added the Scallop Oval punched tag stamped with Happy Easter from Well Scripted.  I highlighted the word happy with my Certainly Celery Stampin' Write marker!


Sets:  Chocolate Bunny, Well Scripted

Inks:  Vanilla Craft, Close to Cocoa Craft, Chocolate Chip Craft, Certainly Celery Stampin' Write Marker

Cardstock:  Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Whisper White

Accessories:  Tea Party Designer Paper, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon, Scallop Oval Punch

Make sure to check out what the rest of the design team did this week and be inspired for your own Easter cards!
