Today we’re in for a special treat. Jeanne is on the blog sharing a sweet card and we’re participating in a mini blog hop with our friends on the CardMaker blog, along with sponsoring a giveaway in this post!
Spring is in the air and everything is new again! Are you checking the new releases in the store? It’s fun and fresh and certain to make you want to start creating! I’m playing with the new Easter Blessings stamp set today! It’s a set of three stamps, and there are coordinating dies to make cutting a breeze!
Today I’m showing the Easter lily stamp. It wouldn’t be Easter without them! Our church always has hundreds of lilies on the altar – the sight and smell is amazing! It’s traditional for me to buy one for my mom every year too! I was so tempted to color up this pretty image in pink – like a Stargazer Lily, but decided the traditional white was the way to go (this time anyway!). I snuck in a little hot pink on the pot so my color lust is satisfied.
I made a simple ombre wash background for the potted lily. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink directly on the watercolor paper and cut the panel with the new Stitched Notes Die.
The Stitched Notes die has stitching on the inside and outside of the die cut line. I really love the size of the die cut! It’s perfect for an A2 size card and leaves just enough edge around the sides to let your colored or pattern papers peek out!
I wanted to repeat the ombre watercolor wash colors on those peeking edges so I created a panel with three shades of aqua.
Some Sparkling Clear Sequins are like dew drops for our pretty flowers! This image brings back lots of great memories and has me pining for one of my own. Until they are back in season I will be satisfied with this pretty stamp!
As we mentioned earlier, we’re taking part in a mini blog hop and we’re the last stop. Here’s all the stops:
To celebrate this mini hop, I’m hosting a giveaway that features some of our brand new products!
