~~~ Sugared Easter Egg ~~~

Happy Hump Day !! Do Y'all remember those sugared Easter eggs we used to get in our baskets and they had lil scenes inside?? This is my take on those sugary creations. I used the Easter 2010 cart for the eggs, grass, bow and bunny rabbit and Doodlecharms for the basket.The bunny has 3 layers, on top of the shadow layer.Some of you that know my work, know that I LOVE layers. It adds so much dimension. I seldom if ever glue 1 layer down on card stock. I have had comments made about embossing patterned paper. Yep, I do that too, for dimension. As subtle as it is, it still adds depth. The large scalloped egg is 3 layers, glued together and then popped, using foam dots, on top of yet another layer. I glittered the egg with a fine glitter and added "Icing" all along the scallop, using pearlized Polymark fabric paint. I added some vellum flowers and punched leaves.I thought that the corners needed a lil something, so I used a hole punch to punch out 4 tiny dots and placed them under clear rain dots. I usually only buy clear rain dots and use this technique to make them any color I want ! Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek !!! xoxo Joy

So, so pretty. I love the layers, just like you! And your vellum flowers -- awesome!


Beautiful Card! I Love it!!!


Beautiful card


Just spectacular, Joy! You know I love me some dimension! Great tip on the raindots and I'm so loving your vellum flowers. And what a fabulous scene on the inside. WOW! xxD


This is absolutely fabulous!! The little paint pearls are just the right touch. I emboss patterned paper too!
By the way, I got a kick out of reading your profile. We took a holiday to the southern US this past summer and tried grits for the first time. I've never heard the acronym though. Love it!!


although I never got one of these eggs as a kid, I did admire the ones that I did get to see.
You did a great job on it!


Beautiful card!

Welcome to My World

This sight is dedicated to the art of card making....of which I am addicted ! I began making cards a few months before Dan was deployed to Iraq.I wanted to make sure he had a new card to open every day, so I used BlueMountian.Co and created him 2 months worth of cards !About a year ago I saw that famous infomercial for a little bug called a Cricut.Well, after watching it numerous times, I HAD to have it...and I ordered it!!!Then I found the Cricut Message Board and I hit pay dirt!!! I was, and still am so inspired by some of the talented women on that board!I have to give them credit for making me the card maker that I am today!!!
Thank you ladies, from the bottom of my heart!
I hope you enjoy looking at my cards, as much as I enjoy making them!!!
