So far this week, we have covered Easter and spring themed altered projects and layouts. So that means we are sharing Easter and spring themed cards with you today!
“Easter Happiness” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
Nobody does happy, spring filled colors like Bella does! Just looking at all of the bright, cheery colors almost makes me forget the snow and cold outside! I combined papers and stickers from the Spring Flings and Easter Things collection. I embellished the card with Bella button and a Gulf Crochet Heart.

“Sweet” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
When I first saw this cute bunny (from the Spring Flings and Easter Things Ciao Chip Icons), I couldn't help but think of Easter baskets and eggs! So, that is what I created...a perfect backdrop for this too sweet bunny! I used my Silhouette to cut out an Easter basket shaped card (complete with vellum behind the basket). I embellished the card with a tag, Crochet Heart, and a Pink Flower button.

“Happy Easter” card, by Carina Lindholm.
Bella Blvd came out with so many new wonderful designer tapes this CHA, and I love them all. So I wanted to make a fun Easter card using many of the new tapes. I started off by tracing the egg patterns on the green paper and cut out the egg shapes. Then I cut out the egg shapes in plain cardstock and covered them in all the different tapes. I stitched along the edges of the tapes to give my Easter eggs another fun detail. Then I adhered the colourful eggs on the back of the green paper before adhering it to the card.

“Spring” card, by Carina Lindholm.
I love spring. It’s my favorite time of the year. I can’t wait for spring to come this year, I am totally over winter. I went all giddy then making this card, I love the colors and all the super cute flowers on the patterned paper. And the chipboard icons are to die for.

"Spring" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I went a little flower crazy on this card as I did a lot of fussy-cutting and combined the new Bella Blvd lines with the Spring Flings and Easter Things line from last year. Hey it works because all these lines mix and match so well together! Thanks for looking!

"Hi" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I used a sheet of the Freestyle Sophisticates (Cotton Candy) as the base of this card. Then I used different elements from several Bella lines to embellish the card. I used stickers from the Spring Flings and Easter Things line. The striped strip is from Engaged at Last and the big flower sticker is from the Sand and Surf Just Write Journaling Stickers. I even dug through the Bella buttons and flags that I have been hoarding and made myself use some on this card!
