Alternative Happy Easter

Hi Bloggers.

I thought I'd show a different version of the card I shared yesterday. I demoed this on Hochanda. By the way the Craft Consortium Paper Pad is due in today so I've loaded the stock and you can purchase it here if you wish.

I've used the same paper and the mostly the same die sets as in the card yesterday (I haven't used the Spellbinders Twisted Palm on this one).

So, the bunny paper is from the English Garden 12 x 12 Paper Pad. I've run some White Pearl Strip down both sides.

I cut #3 die from the Spellbinders Astoria Decorative Accents Die Set out of Coconut White Card and inked through the die with Phill Martin CS Decadent Oak Colour Cloud using a Smoothie.

I cut the #2 die from the Spellbinders Astoria Decorative Elements Die Set and  inked through the die with Creme Brulee Colour Cloud. I added to the decorative accents die cut - it fits perfectly and you can see the Decadent Oak ink through the die cut.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Petite Lavish Sentiments Stamp Set using Coffee Archival. I cut it out using #2 die in the Spellbinders Savoy Decorative Accents Die Set and inked through the die with Decadent Oak.

I cut the tassel from the Spellbinders Decorative Accents Die Set and inked through the die with Decadent Oak. I hooked this into the Savoy die cut.

I assembled the card as shown piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

Lisa Horton is launching a One Day Special on Hochanda this evening with some lovely new MDF and stamps that she has designed herself - a very clever lady! There's 10% off products that I have in stock from her shows. Quite alot of stuff was out of stock so I couldn't order it but you can find what I do have here. Offer applies till midnight tomorrow night.

Thanks for stopping by.
