Easter Blog Hop is Here!!!

Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail.....
Welcome to the Easter Blog Hop where we have come together to share some spectacular Easter inspiration with you. If you arrived here from Mary Ellen's blog you are in the right place. If you just happend to "HOP" in please start at the beginning with our hostess, Robin at

I created this sweet little Easter card using the shaving cream technique.

The card base is Bashful Blue SU! cardstock with layers of an old SU! designer series paper mounted on Elegant Eggplant. The strip across the bottom is a piece that I used the shaving cream technique as well as the butterfly. The flower is made with coffee filters die cut with a scallop Spellbinders die, then I added 3 colored buttons layered on top of one another and tied with a piece of white organza ribbon.

Here is a closeup of the butterfly. I embossed it using a light purple embossing powder and then used a marker to color just the tips of the wings. The sentiment is from one of the little $1 clear stamp sets that I got at Michael's. It is stamped in Elegant Eggplant and then punched out with the large tag punch and then curled up the edges using a bone folder. The edges of each layer of cardstock were distressed and inked. The final touch is a piece of frilly lace adhered to the bottom of the card.
