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!

The Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC426) had some pretty colors I thought would look nice in my stained glass window. I needed a wedding card and I thought this fabulous image would be perfect.

Images are from Our Daily Bread designs. The window was black embossed, colored w/ Copics and die cut using the matching ODBD/Spellbinders die. After I die cut it, I realized it would have been much easier to emboss it twice and color only the one I wasn’t going to die cut. I would have saved me from having to put all those window pieces back in place. Oh well. I did die cut another marbled frame and attach it under the embossed one to raise it up a bit from the stained glass pieces. The white die cut window frame was attached around the window and I embossed the background w/ a Cuttlebug folder. The sentiment was also die cut and attached on top of my 4.25 x 5.50 card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great week!

Wonderful color combo challenge today on Splitcoast (CC365)! My card is almost entirely the blushing bride shade of pink w/ just a hint of the wasabi green (plus a little gold for the cross).

All images are DRS Designs. I stamped the lily cross image and added a little color. I did this really quickly since I knew I wanted a vellum overlay and some of the detail would be lost anyway. The stained glass oval was stamped on vellum w/ the gray ink and I sprinkled on the ep immediately (since it’s dye ink) and heat embossed it. I sponged on a little of the pink ink onto the back side of the vellum and added just a little darker pink w/ a marker. I embossed the greeting on the marbled pink c/s using the same ep and the black ink. The window was die cut out of the pink. Then I used an embossing folder so it wouldn’t look too plain. The vellum, then the image were attached underneath and then onto a 5.50 x 4.25 card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
