Happy, Hoppy Easter-PP237

March 22, 2015

Spring has finally arrived!!!!  So excited that the days will finally be warmer and sunny!  

It's Sunday and time for another challenge at The Paper Players!  This week the lovely, LeAnne is our hostess.  She has a fantastic sketch for us to play along with.  

I wanted to add another card to my Easter stash.  I am giving a shout out to the very talented, Ann Marie Hile for this fabulous idea.  She made a card similar to mine a few weeks ago.  I fell in love with her card with the "Peeps."  I searched and searched and found the stamp set from Close to My Heart.  I absolutely LOVE these little peeps!  I smile every time I look at them!

I stamped the Peeps on 3 different colors using Momento Tuxedo Black Ink.  I covered them with clear embossing powder and heat embossed them for shine. I add Glossy Accents on the eyes and noses and a little Wink of Stella was added on the outer edges.  It is difficult to see in the pictures, but adds a lot of shine.  

The sentiment is stamped in black and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The grass was cut using the fringe scissors from Stampin' Up! .  All of the patterned papers are from Authentique Treasures paper pack.  Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh adds that extra little spark!

An envelope liner and another Peep was added inside to finish my card.

  1. Claire, your peeps are adorable! I love that you made some grass for them to set on, so CUTE!

  2. Oh, these peeps are perfect for this sketch...and sitting in the grass, they look right at home! Adorable!! Thanks for making my sketch rock and making me smile with your card!

  3. These peeps are just too adorable! I love the colors you've chosen - so perfectly Spring-like.

  4. What's Easter without some Peeps?! I love this Claire, so cute, and the sentiment inside is absolutely adorable!

  5. Absolutely adorable, Claire! I agree with's not Easter without Peeps!

  6. Aw, I totally love this whimsical card! It is so perfect for Easter. Adorable!

  7. Claire these peeps are super cute - I just love how they are peeping through the grass, adorable! Gorgeous papers too. Would you believe me if I told you I created an almost identical card in layout, but using chicks in place of peeps? When I saw your fab card, I just knew I had to go back to the drawing board. Clearly great minds think alike!

  8. Easter Peeps!! Too cute!! I love that added strip of creative!!

  9. Claire, these bunnies are adorable sitting in their bed of grass. This card made me smile! love it

  10. So glad you found the stamp set, Claire! This card is so stinking CUTE! Love the patterns on the banners and the sequins add a fabulous touch. Today while I was out shopping, I saw Peeps in Sour Watermelon and Birthday Cake "flavors". What is up with that? These are not the Peeps we know and love! I also found some Resee's Peanut Butter Eggs. I only bought really. It was tough though. Hooray for Easter candy! Lol!
