Welcome to my crafty blog. I’ve just about finished making my Easter cards now – here’s a last couple. I do love a CAS style with white on white and bright colours, and these definitely meet that brief! Inspiration from these has come from a couple of this week;’s challenges – the eggs wreath has the colours from Color Throwdown and the floral one picks up the inspiration photo from Just Add Ink. I’ll also share them over at As You See It , as their theme is Easter.
I started by stamping and die cutting the eggs from Stampin’ Up’s ‘arrange a wreath’ set – I used Distress Inks in ‘mustard seed’, ‘picked raspberry’, wilted violet’ and ‘mermaid lagoon’.
I then die cut the wreath from the set in white card, and attached it to a 6×6 card blank. I remembered to use Stick It before cutting it out, so the back of the wreath was adhesive and I didn’t need glue.
All I then needed to do was pop the eggs around the wreath using foam pads, and stamp the sentiment to finish.
I made the second card in the same way, but this time stamped the individual flower in more colours, to pick up the shades in Just Add Ink’s photo. I again used foam pads to attach them, grouping the flowers together, and then added the sentiment using ‘ripe persimmon’.
Thanks for dropping in. I’m working hard to resist the chocolate eggs this year – I’ve only got 2lb to go to achieve my weight loss target with Slimming World, so I mustn’t weaken now!
