Here is my card for the hop!
I decided to make a gate fold card for our hop!  To make this card I needed to use my Misti to make the mirror image of the little dragon!  And it worked perfectly!!!
Designer Steps:
 1.  I used a red rubber plain stamp to create the base for the ink.  And I have a link to a video that will help you with this method!
2.  I inked the stamp up several time to press the black ink onto the red rubber
3.  After I got enough ink onto the red rubber base I pressed the white card stock onto the image

4.  Next I flipped the paper and stamped the image again to get the opposite facing dragon

 5.  I used the scallop Pink and Main die to cut out the opening on the front of the gate fold after I had glued down the DP from the Celebrate paper pad

 6.  I stamped the images using the Fired Up stamp set and colored with copics: Y13, 19 - RV10, 13, 21 - V12, 15, 17.  I cut out the images with the coordinating dies.

 7.  Stamp the sentiment using the Fired Up stamp set and cut apart then layer onto purple card stock

Designer Steps:
 1.  Start with an A2 white card base and cut a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of blue card stock.  Run the blue card stock through a cloud embossing folder
 2. Cut out the greeting using the Happy Easter Phrase die and white card stock.  Glue the phrase to the upper part of the blue embossed panel
 3. Cut out the white fence using the Victorian Fence die.  Then glue it just below the greeting
 4.  Next cut out a strip of green card stock 4 x 1 1/4 and 3 grass strips using the Spring Grass die
 5.  Layer the grass onto the bottom part of the card as shown
 6.  Using gray card stock and the Mr. Peter Rabbit die cut out the body.  Next use the same die and cut out the overalls in a denim DP.  Also using the same die and cut out the Easter eggs using yellow, orange, and pink card stock
7.  Shade the bunny with a gray ink then glue on the overalls add the black pearl eye and tiny buttons.  Glue the eggs into the grass and one in the bunny's hand and your card is complete.

Everything here in South Carolina is in bloom especially the Azaleas. Most of the flowers are bright pink which is so cheerful after a long cold winter! So with flowers on my mind I designed this card for today using the new Blossoms stamp set.

Designer Steps:
  1. Use an A2 white card base cut the navy check DP from the Summertime Petals paper collection 4 x 5 1/4 and glue to the front of the white
  2. Cut a piece of yellow printed DP from the Honey Bloom paper collection 3 3/4 x 5 and glue to the navy DP
  3. Stamp the flowers using the Blooms stamp set.  I used a masking technique and then a scallop die to cut out
  4. Color the flowers with copic markers: YG61, 63 - YR14, 18 - Y11, 17
  5. Pop the scallop the the front of the card and add the navy bow
