Happy Easter!

Happy Almost Easter!  I've been playing around with the "embossed frame" technique some more.  (You can see details of how to do this technique in a previous post.)  This time I made a reverse mask -- i.e. cut a 3" circle (the same size as the chipboard frame), out of a piece of scratch paper -- laid that over the embossed frame, and sponged ink around the edges to make the edges of the frame stand out.  Once again, I've used the "Easter Blossoms" stamp set from the Occasions Mini catalog.  I sooo love this set -- and hope very much it will be in the new big catalog in July.  Pretty Please!!!

I also used the new "sneak peak" set -- "Four Frames" -- that is available to purchase during the month of April -- see the promotion on the sidebar of my blog.  I always have to buy any set that matches a punch, because,.... I HATE to cut stuff out by hand!  -- and, the Decorative Label punch is one of my faves, so this set was an absolute for me! :)

The colors used in this design, is Early Espresso, Whisper White, and Marina Mist.  Not your traditional Easter colors, but I liked how these colors work together.

Happy Stamping!


  1. Stop the insanity, Beth! I can't case your cards and steal your techniques that quickly. :o

  2. Oh Sandy. :) You're too funny! Sometimes I go for a long time without posting, then finally take the time to photograph the stuff I've been up to.
