Spring/Easter Card Kit Swap - mixed kits

This is the final post of the Card kit swap with Nonni of Nonni's Handmade Cards and Marina of My Perfect Life showcaseing spring/Easter themed cards. I still have several items left which will certainly be used for a later occasion.

Card 1)
I loved this little image but did spend some time on a design idea for it. I had this die cut banner from Nonni as well, and some pink enamel dots from Marina, so I went with a pink theme, using my own embossing folder and pink DI.
This card is for:
Cards und More - # 182 Monochrome
Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes

Card 2)
Marina's new stamps with Easter images were so cute I had to use them all. I teamed this one up with a DP and sentiment from Nonni's kit and a flower strip and DP used for the tree from my own kit.
I framed the scene with a die cut circle and mounted it on foam onto an embossed background.
This card is for:
Crafting By Designs - Girls or Flowers
Shopping Our Stash - #298 Use Punches and/or Dies

Hi Pia, how many beautiful cards you are making with the items of the swap!
Love the pink palette of today's first card, you created a so feminine look with a great texture and love the border with the scallop circle!
Great choice of colours for the second one too, the black & white makes the image pop out. This card has a lovely feel of movement with the diecut background and the embossing on the base layer!
Hugs my friend, I wish you a joyful Easter time!

Such great cards!

Marina said...

Two fabulous cards - the first is very pink and very fun. I do love the layering of elements on the second and the restrained colour palette. As well as using it as a mask, I did have an idea for the flower strip. But ai took my bits to my scrapbooking weekend and now can't find them! Every one of your makes from this swap has been wonderful . Thanks for a great swap.

Hi Pia. Back in the cold and wet sadly! No mojo at all so am just catching up with blogland. Great makes from your card swap. x

Nonni said...

Two fantastic cards, Pia! I especially love the pink, girly look of your first card.I love the layout you used, it's one of my fave CAS layouts! Very fun embossing folder too. In your second card I think the use of the dotty paper and the flower strip is so inspired, very unique and fun look! Well done my friend and thanks for this swap! Happy Easter!

PIA! Hi! Overjoyed to see your card at Shopping Our Stash this week... just like everything you touch, these are solid gold. The background of the first card is so punky and pink-- love it. The second card is striking and adorable-- I love all of the contrast... it's hip and cute! Thanks for sharing. [Apologies for being an absent blog-friend... I'm losing my mind, just barely feel like I'm keeping my head above water most days!]


Beautiful card Pia thank you for joining us over on
