This Month's Guest Hoppers are:
he March's Blog Hop is a bit of challenge, I do not typically make many Easter projects. In my house we have Easter baskets for the kids and we color eggs. But, I usually don't have the need to give gifts or cards. With that said, I do not own a lot of Easter stamps. Sometimes I good challenge is all I need to get motivated to think outside of my comfort and get more creative.
The card I chose to make uses all Stampin Up products.
This card somewhat evolved while I was creating, I have added, removed and changed this along the way! I am happy with the results. I hope you enjoyed it.
The stamped images are from the Sale-a-bration Avant Garden and All God's Grace.
I kept the cardbase Whisper White and I used 2 sheets of DSP from the Serene Scenery paper stack. I cut out an oval on the front of the card using the Stitched Frameleits and did the same to the DSP, making sure it lines up.
I adhere another piece of DSP on the inside, I added the oval left over and adding the cross on top. As you can see from the pictures below I stamped and colored in many flowers before fussy cutting them out. I arranged them like a bouquet overhanging the over cut out!
I added Gold Wink of Stella around the edges of the cross and in the blank spaces between the flowers and leaves. Also on the cross I added strands of gold floss.
My project is something that I had in the works or awhile. I was an avid scrapbooker before kids and that slowly dwindled after each child was born. I've mostly worked on digital as its a little accessible. I haven't dabble in Project Life, frankly because I have so much stuff on hand. But I have decided to try to incorporate a little more traditional scrapbooking back into my crafting.
Most of the page was designed to use the fringe scissors and the Spring image that I printed and cut with my Cricut image. Such a long time ago.
So, I apologize the lighting in my basement is a little off. The colors I used was Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Smoky Slate and Whisper White.
The words has sprung, was printed from my printer and I used a circle punch to cut them out, The banner was cut out using a Cricut cartridge called Pretty Pennants.
The Whisper White was cut using a Creative Memories Cutting template. The grass on the bottom was used but cutting the edges with the Fringe Scissors. I added some bakers twine and rhinestones to finish the pages off.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the projects I shared with you. Leave a comment and I will make sure to choose a winner of some blog candy!!!
