This week the Design Team at Stamp Simply are sharing cards for Easter and/or Spring. Such wonderful inspiration from the rest of the Design Team! I hope you will have time to visit and check them out!
Even though the temps are in the 30’s and 40’s here on the East Coast, I am looking forward to spring with the pretty flowers and blooming trees and decided to create an Easter card.
I pulled out a the Floral Cluster Summer Roses stamp set for the floral image and paired it with a verse sentiment from the He Has Risen stamp set.
I also used two separate paper pads, Craft Consortium Ink Drops- Rosev and Carta Bella My Valentine (both 6x6 paper). Lastly, I added a bit of lace and ribbon as well as a few dies- all from Stamp Simply!
The floral image and the verse sentiment were heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The floral image was colored with water-based markers before die-cutting with the coordinating die and the sentiment was die-cut with an oval die.
The top half of the background is a piece of light rose designer paper from the Craft Consortium Ink Drops- Rose 6x6 paper pad. Unfortunately I had to cover up this gorgeous paper- look at all those fabulous ink drop backgrounds! So pretty that you do not even need to add an image!
The lower half of the background is a floral pattern
from the new Carta Bella
My Valentine 6x6 Paper Pad. This paper
pad has so many different pretty designs that can be used for cards all year
round (many for Valentine’s Day but not necessarily for just Valentine’s Day).
I also love that the verses from the He Has Risen stamp set can be displayed year round as well as at Easter.
It is hard to see the shimmer on the floral image from the clear glitter marker and I finished off the card with a few pearls.
As many of you who follow my blog know, I enjoy participating with online challenges and was inspired by the Tic-Tac-Toe #194 Featured Designer Joanne Challenge (diagonal from far left Ribbon/Bow- Flowers- Designer Paper) for this card.
I am also linking to the Krafty Chicks Challenge #648 All Occasions Challenge (Easter) and the Word Art Wednesday #579-#580 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
