winnie and walter 4th birthday - scraps for easter cards

Hope I'm not boring you, but I'm back with more cards for Winnie and Walter's 4th birthday bash.


Guess which challenge? You got it - Mt Scraps is under attack again. Thanks to Kelly's challenge - Use Your Scraps I've been a busy beaver! Just to remind you... this is  was my Mt Scraps!


This first card utilizes a leftover from gelli printing (a homemade stencil). You can see the print on  this card. Those colors were just too scrummy to throw the leftovers away (that's how my brain works, anyway). So I adhered it to a 5x5 cardbase. Those three B/W eggs were scraps too - from this card - so they had to fill three of the negative spaces. The others got some stamping and the sentiment banner was a scrap too so I tacked it on too ;)


So also under Mt Scraps were a whole bunch of die cuts that I'd dip-dyed with leftover Easter egg dye. I grabbed the eggs and gave them a home. This, BTW, is what our dip-dyed real Easter eggs usually look kinda like!


Added some fabby spots to my cardbase before adhering the eggs. Then I stapled on a scrap "hello" negative and stamped the Happy Easter sentiment through the negative space.

If you haven't played along yet, wouldn't today be a great day to tackle your scrap pile?!? I'm joining the fun at:
