So this week is all about hopping into Easter as we gear up this Sunday to Spring Forward I thought it might be fun to hip hop into Easter with some amazing little cards I did using Gecko Galz new Easter products.
Also I am shareing some of my favorite little images that you can use for your own Easter creations.
Also hop over to the Gecko Galz blog and enter their HIP HOP EASTER CHALLENGE and you can win some amazing prizes!


To create this card I used Gecko Galz Hip Hop Easter Collage Set, Paper Studios paper, Double Mates card stock in Desert Dune and red shimmer card stock, twine, decorative foam easter eggs (I got from my good friend Heather Hudson) and a decorative teal button. Just layer on the paper and the image with card stock. Then cut a 1" x 6.5" belly band that you will cut into two points on the right end and layer across card base. In Photoshop or Gimp create your word banner that reads HAPPY EASTER (I used GiGi font) tie hemp twine around card top 3 times and tie into knot. ad your sparkly easter eggs in left corner. and you are ready to give to your Love Bunny!


To create this sweet little card I started with Gecko Galz Easter Children collage sheet then added Paper Studios gingham paper and My Minds Eye green dot paper I adhered them back to back and turned up the left corner and used a glue dot to adhere back. On the card base I glued a 6.5x5 pink card stock piece and stamped the word DREAM using brown ink (you can use any sentiment). then I adhered the gingham/dot paper on top of the pink. Next lay down a strip of double sided tape and I adhered a piece of pink ribbon then tied a bow using another piece and glued to left side of card. I sized the girl in photo shop to 4.5" tall and then cut her out and adhered her to top of ribbon strip on the right side of the card. Next I added a pearl button on folded area and a suger coated rose I got from Vintage Rose & Aster to the center of the bow. To finish add a bit of brown ink to cards edge and add a linner to envelope using the green dot paper.


here are some images for you to play with!

Happy Crafting everyone!
