NEW Spring Holiday Clear Sets! Easter & St Patty's! PLUS Challenge 225 Sweet Treats!

NEW Easter _ St Pat

Hop into spring with TWO new holiday clear stamp sets! Wish someone a lucky St. Patrick's Day with our new Sham-rock Set, filled with iconic St. Patty's images and unique sentiments! For Easter (which falls on April 1 this year), our Sweet Easter Set contains darling bunny and floral images for a delicate greeting card! You can find both sets at now!

Sham-Rock Sweet Easter

For inspiration, check out several cards from Renee as an intro to our new Sweet Treats challenge!

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm over on the Art Impressions Blog and I'm getting to feature a brand new Easter set for you.  The set is called Sweet Easter Set #5004. I've made three different cards and used every stamp from the set.  Hmmm...can you tell how cute I think it is??

On the inside I added some little tracks for the cute little chick with a fine point marker.

Don't you love that chubby little cutie?

On my second card I used the largest image in the set.  I just love this napping bunny.  Think of all the fun designs you could do on the pot.  I went traditional Terra cotta to pull in the colors from my designer paper.

On my last card I used the most stinking cute bunny popping out of an egg.  I accented the image with some of the adorable little decorated eggs in the set.

Here's the inside of my last card.  The frame actually comes blank and you can choose which sentiment you want to put inside of it.  It would probably be cute for little place cards at your Easter dinner as well!

Thank you, Renee! We adore your sweet Easter cards! We love that you used every single image in your card collection today!

Just FYI about the Sham-rock set. Those are not shamrocks but are 4-leaf clovers. A shamrock has only 3 leaves that represent the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Just for future knowledge.

This place was amazing! Great food, it's smaller than others I guess but it is still a fair sized fun. The decor at this venue was amazing as every note of music reverberates off the beautiful walls. Everything about the event locations is nothing less than 5 stars.
