Spring is in the air...

Yay, it's March! That means it's time to creating Easter cards and goodies. I love this time of year. It's also time for the Papertrey Senior Design Team Challenge. Nichole asked the designers to create a fresh and fun Spring time project.

I chose to create some dimensional Easter cards using products from last month's release and goodies from my Spring/Easter Inspiration Station. There's a lot of fun details on my cards so be sure to zoom in for close up shots.
I created these egg doodads some time ago using papers from the Egg Hunt patterned paper collection, the egg die, tied Vintage Buttons, punched circles with clear, epoxy circles on top, glitter, and ribbon. It's so fun to just die cut a bunch of eggs and then add little embellishments to fancy them up. It's just as much fun as coloring real eggs! I nestled the egg doodads in some pastel Easter grass, using my tape runner to adhere the grass to my card front and pop dots to adhere the eggs to the grass.
For the bottom of my card, I used the cutest sentiment ever from Pine's Egg Hunt set. I then created some fun patterned paper using various ink colors and Pine's Tin Type background set. Zoom in to check it out further. A piece of patterned paper from Pretty Pastels finishes off the bottom of the card. Card base is Kraft cardstock, inked with Fresh Snow ink. A fluffy Aqua Mist Luxe Satin ribbon finishes off the card.
Ahhh, a nice little start to my Easter card stash. I love to see the little piles grow.
I hope I've inspired you to create some Spring time goodies. Or maybe try your hand at some egg doodads. I'm thinking I need to make a scrapbook page with my doodads lined up along the bottom, tucked into some Easter grass. Wouldn't that be cute??

Know what else is cute? All the creations that other Senior girls have created. Kelly Purkey, our guest designer, is playing along too. Enjoy the hoppin..........blog hoppin that is. :)

At the risk of sounding like a broken record...this is the cutest card ever. Yes, I said it again. And will continue to say over and over ;-) I love the addition of the easter grass. Why the h-e-double hockey sticks can I not come up with a cute idea like that on my own? Thank goodness I have you to copy from is all I have to say!!
