Easter Blossoms!

Here's another "Easter Blossoms" beauty.  I used the scallop #2 Bigz Die to cut the black scallop, and then the clear circle die to cut the whisper white circle -- no circle scissors plus for me! :)  The rest is pretty self explanatory.  I used the tiny seed pearls for the centers of some of the flowers -- really makes the card "pop".
Supplies list:
Stamps: Easter Blossoms
Ink: Basic Black, Regal Rose marker
Card stock: Rose Red, Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories: Finial press embossing folder, large oval, scallop oval punches, Pomegranite satin ribbon (retired)

A Window into Spring!

I love the new "Easter Blossoms" stamp set from the Occasions mini.  That branch with the flowers is so elegant -- I want to try using them for making stamped marble coasters, as it would be perfect for that!
To make the window, I used a 3x3" Whisper White square, stamped my branches, then colored them in with a Regal Rose marker, then cut the square into 1.5" squares.  I then mounted those onto a black panel, and then a Rose Red panel.  I used wadded up Saran Wrap, pouncing it on my Baja Breeze ink pad, and then onto the window panels to make it look like sky.  I then cut 1.5" squares of light weight window sheets, put the peel and stick Big Shot adhesive sheets on the backs of them, and then put them on top of the window panes to make them really look like glass.  I then stamped the Baja Breeze folded panel with French Filigree background stamp, and used the Baja Breeze seam binding for the finishing touch -- as well as the little "hello" stamp from Tiny Tags colored with markers.

We are making this lovely card at my next class -- Spring has Sprung!  See my Events Calendar for all the details.
