A LITTLE BIT OF EASTER JOY.....

A very quick post from me tonight, just wanting to show you a couple of gorgeous Easter themed cards by lovely Joanna, and another couple of ceramic (bisque) items - painted money boxes, by myself.

Here are the cards....




I absolutely adore these cards, with the flowers and the string and the coloured tissue, old papers, stamping and lace.  Note the wording Joanna has managed to incorporate with 'Easter Eggs' from an old dictionary or similar.  Lovely colours too!!

The new stamps from CI-467 (note to self - must remember to take off the special offer on the newest stamps - tomorrow) appear on her cards, as well as the cute robin from CI-456.

Here are my money boxes.  The bisque I bought in for a class I ran last week, and is a follow on from the vase I decorated from the idea initiated originally by Helen (I have a few 'blank' money boxes left to sell if anyone wants one - let me know)....



The cottage is from CI-460, and the crackle is from an old favourite CI-116.



I really enjoy decorating the bisque - such fun!  CI-415 is the 'Beyond the Picket Fence' stamp that has been used on this second money box.

Thanks for your viewing, and for leaving your lovely comments if you have time..

Back soon,

Jean x

Stunning cards by Joanna, love very much how they are dimensional with these insert of colourful tissue and old papers!! The rustic string and the little flowers are amazing details! And the uncoloured stamps really has been shown so well with these designs!!
Your ceramic money boxes are stunning too!!! The crackle stamp you used for the sky gives a so happy feel to these scenes! Love expecially that one with the fence and the gorgous flowers! These money boxes are surely perfect to gift someone!

Great eastern cards! And saw your moneybox on Hochanda, so pulled mine out of the stash and used is; so you inspired me!!

Love these projects. The cards are gorgeous - very touchy feely - and the money boxes are beautiful - love the picket fence going round. What did you use for the texture in the sky?

Helen said...

Ah, didn't read it properly (slapped wrist!) that was the crackle stamp - really effective.
