Happy Easter Everyone!

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you've all had a lovely day and that the Easter bunny left you lots of yummy chocolate eggs. We've had a lovely day, with our traditional Easter egg hunt around the garden and then a family roast for lunch. Not even the rain this afternoon could dampen our spirits.  I made this really quick card this morning as an absolute last-minute Easter card - I needed one more opportunity to use an Easter stamp! I wasn't intending to share it on my blog, then this afternoon I saw that the Paper Players challenge this week is to create a CAS card with washi tape, so thought I would link up;

Here is my super-quick card:

I must confess that I am something of a hoarder of washi tape - I love to buy it, then struggle to use it! One thing it's great for though is adding detail to really quick cards, like this one: I simply took a plain piece of Melon mambo for my card base, added two strips of Gingham Garden washi tape and then stamped the 'Eggstra Spectacular' stamp in pink, coloured with marker pens then popped up on a couple of dimensionals. As easy as that! I cut my washi tape with scissors as I wanted a straight edge, but it tears really easily and looks great with a torn edge too. I don't know why, but having come to edit my photo the pink washi tape doesn't look straight, but I can assure you it is - next time I'll go with something more random!

Back tomorrow with another card; until then, happy stampin'!

This is quite clever...I always think I need to use washi on white cardstock, but it's quite pretty on colored as well!  Thanks for sharing this with us at the Paper Players this week!  Cute card!

Very cute, Joanne! I love the washi on the colored paper. The colored eggs are adorable.  Such a clean, simple and washi-tastic card! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

Thanks Ann - almost too simple, but sometimes a card in a hurry is just what you need! Another great challenge theme this week.
