This is sort of a long post, but be sure to check at the end to see MY blog candy!
The stamp set I chose to highlight is Easter Blossoms. I just love silhouettes, and the little girl skipping along just sealed the deal! Here’s my first creation:
My little girl is stamped in Stazon on Springtime Vintage DP and mounted on Very Vanilla and a Baja Breeze panel embossed with the Framed Tulips embossing folder. A little seam binding and lace and a pearl-centered flower were all this sweet card needed! I also made a very simple scrapbook page with this image. You know I am NOT a scrapper, so bear with me:
I used another piece of Springtime Vintage paper, mounted on a 12x12 Very Vanilla, and this time my little silhouette is stamped in Rose Red. I then mounted my stamped panel on a Cherry Cobbler mat, which is mounted on a square piece of Rose Red that has been embossed with the Framed Tulips embossing folder. Yes, a square! You can see a nice tutorial about how to make a square here by my creative friend Donna!
I used a sentiment from Word Play, and some new diecut flowers called Fun Flowers, also in the mini:
They were cut from Rose Red & Melon Mambo Patterns DP, then had their edges sponged.
My third project is a sweet little CAS Easter card using Versamark, regular dye ink and clear embossing powder:
Each egg was inked in the Versamark first, then on Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait and Daffodil Delight, and stamped on Whisper White; clear EP was sprinkled on and heated, then the egg was cut out. Make sure to clean your stamp between each color!!! I used a flower punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack to make my flowers:
I think that is such a quick easy way to add a sweet embellishment to your card!
I also used a little flourish from Vintage Vogue to stamp on the vellum panel in Craft White:
