TCP Easter Cards

Hi all! I just wanted to share some fun Easter cards I made last night with my Cat's Pajamas stamps. Here is where you can see the whole set. I actually bought this set last fall, I have no clue why I bought it 6 mos. BEFORE Easter, except that it was so darn cute! I was able to use the chicken stamp for a birthday card, you can see that here.
I started out last night thinking that I just wanted to color these and die cut, and that I would leave the actual card-making for today. But once I got started, I couldn't stop, these images are so much fun to play with! There are many similar elements on these 3 cards. You can see once I did one, the other two were pretty easy, because I just kept my ideas much in the same vein and used similar products. Buttons, gems, Spellbinders dies, herringbone ribbons and patterned papers all became major players on these cards. I hope you like them!
For this first card, I used a cool K and Company paper with a metallic accent in it. I thought these colors were Easter-y and then I pulled out the purple and turquoise in the ribbon and tulip 3D accents. I think this sentiment is my favorite in the whole set! :)

I love this next card, even though pink isn't normally my thing;) I think this  stamp is hysterical and I was able to pull out this pretty SU! DSP "Razzleberry Lemonade." That sparkly flower button, I have been looking for the perfect project for it, for ages! I think this is a good fit. For the sentiment accent, I did the ribbon ruffle only on the top half to go with the idea of the "bonnet." 

For this final card, I used 2 bows on their sides to help "frame" the image. This card has more earthy colors and a softer feel, though I think the orange buttons help it "pop." 

I hope you have a great day! :)
