Victory Through Our Lord Jesus Christ

Hi Friends!

With Easter fast approaching, I am sharing another Easter card designed using stamps, dies and paper from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

There are so many stamp sets for Easter at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store in addition to the New Release scheduled for reveal this coming week!

This is card features a “faux” alcohol ink background using a piece of designer paper from the Consortium Vivid Ink Drops 6x6 paper pad.

This paper pad has so many beautiful backgrounds- as I mentioned in a previous post, I do enjoy working with alcohol inks, but it can be messy, the Vivid Ink Drops paper pad takes all the work out of creating those fun backgrounds!

I enjoy participating in online challenges and am linking this card to #IB162“Inspired By Quote” Challenge.  I love using Scripture on my cards and this is one of my favorite verses.  

In addition to the Inspired By Challenge, I am also playing along with the Word Art Wednesday #479-#480 “Anything Goes” Challenge, the Stamping Sensations “Color My World” Challenge, the Double Trouble #77 “Layer It On” Challenge and partnering with the Crafter's Cafe #260 "Lace/Pearls" Challenge. 

If you have not had time to check out the Stamp Simply blog or the other challenge sites yet, I hope you will do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Cut a piece of black cardstock to 4 ¼” x 5 ½”, adhere a piece of 4” x 5 ¼” white cardstock to the panel.

De-static the lower edge of a 3 ¾” x 5” piece of the Vivid Inks designer paper with an embossing powder tool, stamp the 1 Corinthians 15:57 verse sentiment from He Is Risen with Versafine Onyx Black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

Once the embossing has cooled, adhere to the background panel and mount onto a white card base.

Create the paper lace from white cardstock using the Tim Holtz Crochet Die adhere to the background panel.

Add a strip of 5/8” Black Twill Ribbon, wrapping the ends behind the panel. 

Adhere to the background panel to a white card base.

For the floral image, use an embossing powder tool to de-static a piece of white cardstock, stamp the floral image from Floral Clusters- Summer Roses with Versafine Onyx Black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

Once the embossing has cooled, watercolor the image using water-based makers and die cut with the coordinating Floral Clusters Single Die.  Die cut two more of the florals from white cardstock, adhere behind the colored floral image.

Mount onto the card front using dimensional foam or chipboard.

Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the flower petals, a white paint pen to add highlights to the flower center and a few pearls to the floral centers.

Finish off the card with black rhinestones in the upper left-hand corner.
