To make my Butterfly Wish card, I stamped the Butterfly Dream image repeatedly across a white panel then heat embossed it w/ white powder. The distress inks were then sponged across mainly the left side & I let them fade to white on the right. Some random water dots were sprinkled on top, then I took a water brush and lifted the color from the little leaves & added just a touch of green. It was die cut first w/ the largest matting basic die then I used one several sizes smaller to cut out the inside & I inserted a white layer between them.

The first part of the greeting was also done using emboss resist & the Wish die cut was double stacked. The Daisy Garden border die was cut out of white then I separated the diamond part from the flowers and attached one under the top layer & the other on top. I found some wide pink tulle polka dot ribbon & fussed w/ it a bit until I arrived at how it looks now. 
Here’s a look at the inside.

Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

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.

The challenges on Monday at Splitcoast are TLC631 (no line coloring) & CAS422 (winged things).  Hmm….I’m thinking maybe I should have just picked a floral to do the no line coloring. I’ve done it on ornaments & candy canes & it turned out fine, but this little missy was hard to do. Mainly because she’s so little & it’s hard to no line her & keep facial details.

Anyway, I no lined her by using desert sand ink, colored her, then masked her & stamped the butterfly w/ lt blue & colored it. Without having this in my Misti, it would have been impossible. Since the ink is the same color as the Copics I was using, I had to stamp her several times while coloring just to find the edges again. I was so impressed by Nancy Williams card Here & the floor she drew that I added a drawn floor. The curtains were dry embossed, cut out & added on top.

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