Jessa at Useless Trinkets has drawn up some super cute and fun
Easter themed freebies for you to play with.
I know it's hard to believe that someone with such marketable talent
would be willing to just give her drawings away for free, but that's
precisely what Jessa insists upon doing.
She's just cool and generous like that.
First up is Gustav, the Easter Monstah.
Gustav is filling in for the Easter Bunny, who apparently has taken ill....
Jessa has also created some cute sentiments to go along with the new images.
Be sure to grab them while you're visiting her freebie page.
I have been wanting to create a shaker card for months now.
I have been collecting sequins and schtuff to fill my shakers, and
I have been watching various tutorials on how to make simple,
Fuse tool-free shaker cards on YouTube. After all of my preparation
I figured now was as good a time as any to give it a go.
I began by coloring up the Easter version of Cookie Jar, the Unicorn.
I went with a rainbow color palette. I thought it went well with the cute cloud paper.
And unicorns and rainbows kind of go hand in hand, don't they?
I remember my cherished sticker album as a kid was full of rainbow unicorn stickers.
This was one of my favorites.
Now I did mention that this is my very first attempt at making a shaker
card, right? It's a little rough, but I think I did okay.
Some key advice would be to use a heavier stock of paper
to go over the shaker part. My paper is super thin, so it really
shows the wrinkles and even tore a bit, too. Still, it's not too shabby
for my first attempt. I'll be trying this technique again now that I have
figured out some of my mistakes. Practice makes perfect.
Thanks for stopping by today.
I hope you'll pop by Jessa's blog and grab these awesome new freebies.
Be sure to bunneh hop along with the Freebie DT to see all of the clever
ways we've used these great images and sentiments.
