Well, Easter is only a month away, so I've started creating Easter cards. The Abundant Hope ® stamp set is from the Occasions ™ mini catalogue, which is valid until March 31st. This card uses Elegant Eggplant, So Saffron and our watercolor cardstock, along with Black Stazon ™ for the flower and Eggplant for the greeting. The flower is coloured using Blender Pen and Watercolor Pencils.
I love this little family from the stamp set, Happy Together! It is coloured in with Watercolor Pencils and uses Old Olive as its base. As well, it uses More Mustard and Really Rust in layers for the greeting and the mattes. The white gel pen is used to add faux stitching after punching holes evenly around the elements. The new Scallop Trim Corner punch on a 2" square created the tag, with grosgrain ribbon bow added for a finishing touch.
I've been hearing so much about FlowerSoft ™ that I ordered some to try out. The Hostess stamp set, Asian Artistry, is used for this card, along with Dazzling Diamonds for the dragonfly, to create a greeting card that can be used for multiple occasions. The Scallop Trim Border and Scallop Trim Corner punches were used on the So Saffron matte to bring the design up a notch. This card uses the same colour scheme as the Easter card above.
One last little creation: a little birdhouse was constructed using the mini milk carton Sissix die. The scalloped roof uses the Scallop Edge punch. The bird uses the Extra Large Two-Step Bird Punch. Its fun to make and share.
