Today’s Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS425) is He is Risen…celebrate the Resurrection or raise something up, like using embossing. I did both on my cards.

For this Easter card, I paired this beautiful new Celebrate Easter greeting w/ the Lily Cross & the Stained Glass Oval. I know the rectangle version would have worked better, but the oval is the one  I have. I kept the colors neutral & the layout clean & simple to let the images shine. First I put the cross into my Misti & stamped it w/ desert sand. After lightly coloring it w/ Copics, I overstamped it w/ metallic gold ink then heat embossed it w/ gold powder. I did the same to the frame, coloring in just a few areas. 

In real life, the gold embossing is really pretty. You can see it a bit in the pic below.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.


My second Easter card was really quick..the triple crosses were stamped on a die cut circle w/ the lilac ink, then the scripture quote was stamped on top w/ the grape ink. It was added to purple die cut & the white bg was embossed w/ a sun ray folder. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT475) is all about Ovals. Since ovals are one of my favorite shapes to use, this is my kind of challenge! 

This card is actually not hard at all…I started by running a glue stick all over a piece of plain card stock then smoothing a piece of heavy duty aluminum foil down (I used the duller side up) on top of it. I cut one piece slightly smaller than my 4.25 x 5.50 card front, put it inside the fleur de lis embossing folder, then I put the lg oval frame of the Diffuser set on top and embossed. This left the oval center unembossed. I just happened to have a narrow black die cut oval frame that fit so I attached it around the oval. The 3 crosses were die cut out of trimmed off foil covered card stock I had left. I also embossed only the same crosses on black card stock, fussy cut them & attached under the silver versions.

On the embossed background, I used a black Copic marker to add the antiquing along the inside edges of each diamond shape & wiped it a bit w/ a paper towel as I went.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Interesting color combo for today’s Color Challenge (CC359) on Splitcoast. This doesn’t look a lot like I first planned, but I think it’ll work. I’m using a new set from Our Daily Bread designs and a matching grunge cross die. I stamped the entire image in black on the lime green dp, then again on white. I used markers on the white cross, die cut it and popped it up a little on top of the base image. On the lime image, I used a white gel pen to add a few accents.

I intended to use a coordinating piece of BG, but I came across this already embossed kind of grungy looking bg. I remember I stamped it in white, coated w/ white ep and randomly brushed some off for the grungy look. I added a little more white ep around the edges for contrast. The sentiment was also white embossed and the finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
