Cards I've Been Making Lately: March Birthdays, Easter, and April Birthdays too.

 I have had a lot of fun in my craftroom lately.  In the past month I've made a good dozen scrapbook pages, a new spring wreath for our front door (which I shared yesterday!), and nearly a dozen cards as well.

Today I just wanted to focus on the cards. 

We had a few birthdays in March:

I played with pattern paper and ribbon for this fun rainbow card. 

I used more patterned paper for this 18th birthday card

I used my new otter stamps and blender pens to make this cute birthday card.

I made 5 Easter cards- one for each of my boys and husband as well as my mom. 

Can you see the glitter on the sheep?  

I enjoyed heat embossing these images! I haven't used my heat gun in a long time. 

I also made a fun shaker card!

I found a few YouTube videos on using paper scraps with die cuts and had a fun time making some birthday cards for friends and family that have April birthdays.

I tried out a new and unusual fold for this birthday card.

After watching those videos I have so many more techniques I want to try and lots of products I added to my wishlists too.  

Linking up with: Spread the Kindness, 


  1. Beautiful and creative as always!

  2. Your cards are sooooo creative. They are really works of art.

  3. They are really pretty cards. I bet everyone loved them. I always prefer handmade cards to bought one's x

  4. These are all fantastic! I love how you used the patterned papers with the dies. I need to use up more of my papers and this is such a great idea!

    1. It was so fun too! I could have happily combined pattern papers with die cuts all day long.

  5. Wow Joanne! I love those pretty card you made especially the Easter cards. I hope you have a nice day and a happy Easter!

  6. OMG Joanne. Those are all so amazing. I always love the ones with texture and 3-D aspects. That quilted one just made me drool. and the ribbon one.

  7. These are all so creative, Joanne! I almost always manage to hot glue my fingers whenever I'm crafting! So, I'm very impressed by your work!

  8. These are all so cute, but the rainbow one is my absolute favorite! It's so bright and fun!

  9. Hi Joanne,
