Easy Hoppy Easter Card | Paper Pad Pizzazz Series Video March 2024

If you have been following this monthly series using the most adorable Four Seasons 4 Pattern Paper Pad, that I picked up during one of my Hobby Lobby trips (seriously, I can spend hours in that store!). Paired with the Vault Bunny and Chicks Thinlits from Tim Holtz & Sizzix, plus a couple of trusty stencils from Lawn Fawn, this card came together like a dream. Oh, and let's not forget the magic of Speckled Egg and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Inks – they're like the MVPs of ink blending, I tell ya!

Gathering Your Supplies

Before we dive in, let's make sure we've got all our supplies ready to roll. You'll need that darling Four Seasons paper pad (i used pieces of all four of the easter/spring patterns in the pad), the Vault Bunny and Chicks Thinlits, and those Cloudy and Grassy Stencils. Can't find the exact ones? No worries! Feel free to mix and match with what you have on hand – that's the beauty of crafting on a budget!

Creating the Background

Now, onto my favorite part – creating the backdrop for our Easter scene! Grab those stencils and your trusty Distress Oxide Inks, and let's get blending. I love how easy it is to achieve a soft, dreamy look with these inks – it's like painting with clouds! And hey, if your blend isn't perfect on the first try, don't sweat it – imperfections just add character, right?


Die-Cutting the Elements

Time to bring our Easter critters to life! Using the thinlits and that oh-so-cute patterned paper from the Four Seasons pad and a little cardstock, let's cut out our bunny, chick, easter egg, the banner, and the little extras. Pro tip: try mixing up the patterns for a playful look – who says Easter has to be all pastels and florals?

Assembling Your Easter Card

With our background and critters all ready to go, it's assembly time! Adhere those die-cut elements onto your ink-blended background, and let your creativity run wild. I love adding little extra touches like ribbons or sequins for that extra oomph – it's like the cherry on top of an already adorable card! But for today's card I keep it super simple.
