This week’s blog hop theme is Easter cards! It is almost time for Easter…that is hard to believe! I (Connie) have been in Florida and missed the awful cold and snow in Ohio this year! LOVED it! One of the best things about spring is the rebirth of new flowers and budding trees…and some cute little baby animals! Springtime Joy is just the cutest set for Easter!
- The base 4-1/4 x 11 Flirty Flamingo cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- A 1-1/4 x 5-1/4 piece of Fine Art Floral Designer Paper was added to the left side of the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Basic White cardstock.
- A 1 x 3-3/4 strip of Flirty Flamingo cardstock was cut at an angle and stamped with the Springtime Joy greeting in Memento Black Ink, then added to the front.
- The bunny, three tulips, the Easter basket and butterfly were all stamped with Memento Black Ink on scrap Basic White cardstock. They were colored with Stampin’ Blends…Crumb Cake Combo, Flirty Flamingo Combo, Granny Apple Green Combo, Light Highland Heather, Light Daffodil Delight, and Light Pumpkin Pie. They were hand-cut, then added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- An Opal Round embellishment was added next to the greeting!
