An Easter Parade of Cardmaking Inspiration for National Craft Month!

Crafter's Companion – 29/03/21

Here we are in the final week of National Craft Month and with Easter peeking over the horizon what better time to take a look at some Easter craft ideas!

Easter is a time for sunshine, celebration and an opportunity to step back and appreciate all of the new life bursting into our gardens, fields and forests. From frolicking lambs and tufty-headed chicks to the fresh colour and sweet scent of brand new flowers and plants that are just beginning to blossom – this time of year is a real feast for the senses!

So for this Easter-themed blog post we’re focussing on florals! Whether you’re on the look out for seasonal card ideas, fancy making beautiful decorations for your Easter table, or just want to fill your world with sweet Spring flowers – we have plenty of crafting inspiration for you all. So hold onto your Easter bonnets – it’s time to Make March Marvellous!

Spring Flower Forming Collection

These stunning 3D flowers not only bring your cards and crafts to life- they positively bloom from the page! With a beautiful bouquet of seasonal florals including Dianthus, Poppy, Crocus, and Tulip, the Spring Flower Forming Collection is the perfect way to bring the garden inside and onto your seasonal makes!

Each set includes templates to create even larger flowers, so why not branch out to create beautiful celebratory table centrepieces, garlands, wreaths and even Easter bonnets! How cute is this beautiful little flower, nestled in a tiny Florist Box – just pop a name on the front and voila, the perfect Easter table setting!

With the Spring Flower Forming die sets, you can cut precise petals in a range of sizes to create beautiful layered flowers. Here’s the full garden of flowers you can choose from:

This range also has its own special pack of Flower Forming Foam in Spring Hues, so you can make sure your 3D flowers are full of the joys and colours of Spring!

Floral Frame Stamp & Die Sets

We’re staying in the garden to take a look at another blossoming beauty with the Floral Frame Stamp & Die sets! With these sets you can cut a beautiful frame to wreath your Easter messages and Springtime sentiments with a precious posy.

From rambling roses, wonderful wildflowers and precious poppies to elegant lilies and dreamy daisies -there’s enough for a whole bouquet of Easter cards to pop in the post and brighten someone’s day!

Here’s the full flowerbed of designs to choose from!

  • I’m So Happy For You – featuring sweet ruffle-edge flowers
  • Heartfelt Thanks – featuring a sweet daisy chain
  • May All Your Dreams Come True – featuring a beautiful wildflower design
  • For a Special Friend – featuring elegant lilies
  • You Mean So Much to Me – featuring delicate poppies
  • With Love From Me to You – featuring timeless roses

Each set includes two sweet sentiments so you can use them all year round, and there’s plenty of opportunity to flex your creative muscles as they’re perfect to create aperture or shaker effects!

Sharon Callis Sensational Succulents

If florals aren’t your thing then fear not – we have a range just for you! The Sharon Callis Sensational Succulents collection brings all the warmth and charm of the natural world to your creations, without the petals and frills.

Perfect for home décor, gift boxes and of course cardmaking, why not collect the whole crop and craft something a little bit different this Easter?

There are six sets for you to create a tropical terrarium of quilled, 3D succulent and plants! Choose from the following, or bring out your inner botanist and collect them all!

  • Baby Aloe
  • Neon Breakers
  • Merry Maiden
  • Sword Grass
  • Jade
  • Lila China

Just pair the die with paper or card, roll up the die-cut pieces and watch as a stunning succulent grows before your eyes!

And with sets to create dinky plant pots and labels, why not craft a centrepiece, or create cute place settings with a difference this year?

And, if that wasn’t enough you can also create cards that are bursting with life as well as depth and dimension using the Geo Wire Trellis, Garden Frame, Terrarium and Succulent Frame embossing folders and the Succulent Stamp & Die set!
