Easter Blog Hop

Hello hello.  Welcome to the second Art With Heart Blog Hop.  This month the theme is Easter.

Previous Blog Hop Stop:

You may have arrived from Kristine Thompson's blog, or perhaps you are starting your blog hop here. 

Blog Hop News:

Grab a cuppa and enjoy the Easter creations from those of us on Claire Daly's Art With Heart team.  Hmmm, perhaps grabbing some chocolate would be more fitting!   There are around 90 of us in this team.  You'll find 14 stops on this month's blog hop.  Leave a comment on them all, and email Nikki to let her know and you'll be eligible for this month's prize.  (Details below.)

I was in a bright and happy mood when I sat down to make this project so I cracked open a packet of Bold Brights cardstock and my Bold Brights markers and this is what I came up with.  (You might need some sunnies!)


Hmmm not sure that quite comes together but I sure had fun making it and my two kids love it.  J

The base card is Tempting Turquoise with some chomps done with the Cropadile hole punches for a 'swiss cheese' border.  I got a bit carried away and chomped right through both layers - quite like it. 


The panel wrapped in narrow grosgrain ribbon scraps is Lovely Lilac.   I coloured my Circle Circus stamps using Bold Brights markers and stamped onto Whisper White, then freehand drew two eggs and cut them out.  The greeting is from the little Easter Bunny stamp from Greeting's Eight.  I used my markers to just colour the greeting, not the bunny.  You'll find the gorgeous bunny further along in this blog hop - keep an eye out!

The little girl is from the hostess set Window Dressing, once again coloured with my trusty Stampin' Write Markers.  The eggs are popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals and the little girl got a double layer of dimensionals so that she'd sit up above the egg.


Blog Hop Prize Draw:

If you leave a comment on all 14 stops in our Art With Heart Team Blog Hop within 72 hours (before 6am March 2nd) you'll be eligible for our prize draw.  This month you email Nikki at to let her know you've commented at all the stops and she'll draw a name from a hat for the prize.   (Blog Candy: Non SU demos eligible.)   Good luck!! 

I hope you have a bright and cheery day!  Enjoy the rest of the blog hop.

Sue, this is adorable! Love the little girl peeking over the top of the 'giant' egg. Very happy card!


Great card, Sue. Very outside the square. Oh, and thanks for the subtle plug!

Tanja Westwood

WOW, I love what you have done with the crossed over ribbon and the punched cirlces, very cool Sue


I love your card. The colours are great and I like all the holes in it. I love your use of ribbon and your choice of stampsets. You are also very good at drawing and cutting out Easter Eggs. :)

Alisha Watson

Sue, What a lovely card, I have never thought of using my punches like wonderful


Love your card Sue, it's not too bright its perfect for Easter. Really love the holes through both layers of the card and the multi coloured Circle Circus stamping. Thanks for taking part in the hop.

Judy May

Love the ideas Sue - really creative!


What a clever idea, Sue! Love the little girl peeping. Great work.


Very clever Sue! Nice bright colours!

Anne-Marie Stephanides

Sue, I really love the girl poking up from the egg. So cheeky (maybe that's why the kids love it most!) It came together well, and I still think SU called the colours bold brights because you need to be bold to use them (something I'm yet to achieve!) hehe good on you! x

Kathryn Mangelsdorf

Hi Sue, What a beautiful card, love your idea of the little girl and the Easter Eggs.

Hi Sue the colours are what makes people smile, perfect for kids!
