Hoppy Easter - Simple Cards

I wanted to create some Easter cards, but wanted them to be super simple and quick. This is what I came up with...I think they fit the bill, what do you think? [click the image to see it larger]


I used the Eggstra Spectacular stamp set, and I will admit that I kinda "cheated" a little bit. You see, Stampin' Up! is coming out with its own line of alcohol markers soon, called Blendabilities...but, I don't have them yet. So, I used some other alcohol markers to color in my bunnies :-) And, I used an embossing folder that you can't get right now--but you may have chosen it as a free Sale-a-Bration item. But, that's okay, too, because you will be able to order the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder when the NEW 2014-2015 Annual Catalog debuts on June 2nd at Noon MT!

The cards could have been perfect opposites of each other, but the Coastal Cabana one is for a guy, and I thought using Strawberry Slush ribbon around the bunny was just too feminine. So, I used Crisp Cantaloupe instead. Wondering how I trimmed those XL Oval Punches with ribbon? Easy, I just laid down a line of Sticky Strip along the back outer edge, removed the red liner, and stuck the ribbon down to it. The ribbon comes already ruffled for you, straight from the package! I added the ruffled oval to the card front using a couple of Stampin' Dimensionals, then wrapped around and tied a bow with Whisper White Baker's Twine.

The candies were my color muse. The blue one is a Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffle with Coconut filling, and the pink one is a Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffle with Chocolate Raspberry filling. Mmmmmmm and WOW. I know they're round, but I'm pretending they are Easter eggs ;-)
