Happy Easter

Hi Bloggers.

Happy Easter Sunday. I'll be spending the day prepping for my next shows on Hochanda. They're not till April 13th but I have a lot going on before then so need to fit in prep when I can.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I spread some CS Frosty Dawn Sparkle Texture Paste through the Floral Frame Mask onto Coconut White Card and put aside to dry.

I cut the Justrite Garden Circle Die out of Primrose Card. I stamped the sentment from the Justrite Spring Wishes Vintage Labels 8 & 9 Stamp Set onto Primrose Card using Watering Can Archival. I cut it out using a circle die from the Justrite Four in a Square Die Set.

I cut a pair of vines twice out of Primrose Card using Justrite Stitched Oval and Vine Dies. I made a couple of flowers using Justrite Floral Trio One Dies and added some Small Circle Dazzlers.

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

Phill Martin is launching a One Day Special this evening at 8pm with part one of his gorgeous new Timeless Collection. I'm offering 10% discount on items I have on my website from the shows. You can find them here. Offer valid till midnight tomorrow night or while stocks last.

Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Hi Julia. Love the hint of sparkle on the background, it accents rather than overpowers the focal element. I think a day crafting is on the cards today with this weather, although we don't have the pressure of making samples. Happy Easter everyone. Sue XXX
