Spring / Easter greeting cards




I was playing with my new stamps from Michael's $1.00 bin. I had fun adding the liquid applique to the lambs body and the bunnies tail it is so neat to watch it transform from a liquid to a puffy surface in a matter of seconds from the heat of the embossing tool.

Gotta love those Michael's $1 stamps - picked up mine a couple weeks ago. Especially love the lamb on that color cardstock!

Elizabeth said...

All three are adoreable. But I like the little lamb the bestest. Curious as to liquid applique you used. I may have to go looking for it. Is it the puffy paint from the fabric section?

Joy said...

these are supa cute!

Amanda Sewell said...

Very cute Easter cards! Love the fuzzy lamb!

Ellie said...

These are adorable! Love the effect of the liquid applique.

Christy said...

I, too am curious about the liquid applique. Never used it or seen it before. Looks like something that I will have to look in to. Are those stamps the clear or the wooden block rubber stamps? Lots of questions.....sorry. Love all the cards!! Every single one! Appreciate the inspiration.

I have never played with liquid applique, but you used it well. Very cute images, gotta love those bargains, especially when they are turned into such wonderful creations.

Oh these all three are just adorable!!! I love these $1.00 stamps! Love the liquit applique! I have not been able to find it in the store so I got puffy glue but it's not as good, imho. Love these springy creations!!!

Isn't it nice what you can find for a dollar. These are cute. I like the lamb the best. I have never used the liquid applique but I think I may have to try it. It looks great.

Wonderful Easter/Spring Creations! I bought these stamps, and have not used them. Thanks for the inspiration!!

Maria (Inky Stamper) said...

these are cute! I love these kinds of cards when you can use the same layout and just change the image - so easy yet you do not compromise the "cuteness" factor :).
