Archive for the ‘Spring/Easter’ Category


A big congrats to Nancy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS787) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the birds/leaves theme but used different dies, slightly different colors & made mine a Spring card.

My card is fairly simple..I die cut everything, lol. The birdhouse is popped up, as is the leaf frame & Spring word. I actually put the Spring word w/ the shadow back into the space it was cut from to give it a slightly embedded look. Stickles was added to the flower centers & inside the heart on the birdhouse.

I did trim down the green leaf frame a bit in order to have a little show around the edges. Sorry, I think the tiny flowers die is out of stock right now, but please check back.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC846), we’re visiting Simply Woven & their Pinterest Board where I found THIS for my inspiration.

For my Easter card, I stamped, colored & die cut all the images, using 3 different Easter sets & a limited color palette like the photo. The 4 pane window was die cut out of white & popped up just a bit & all the different images were arranged in the windows. I stamped the greeting in one of white windows & put another behind the Easter basket. I finished by adding a little Wink of Stella on the tulips & in the decorated areas of the eggs.

Here are the Copics I used:

For the Inspiration Challenge, we are headed to Retro Stage, a vintage inspired clothing store. I was inspired by THIS dress. Ok..I changed the color from blues to purples & the snowflakes into hydrangea petals, but otherwise, they’re identical!

Since I had already stamped the hydrangeas together & colored them, I used my out of the box technique to die cut them. I took a few extra pics of this, & you can also click the green link to take you to the original tutorial.

First step, pick the die you want to use & determine which parts of your image will go “outside of the box” or circle, in this case. I used my craft knife to cut around those areas & lift them above the die (the stem is also cut out & on top of the die). Only the parts under the die will be cut when I run it thru the machine.

Here it is after I ran it thru the machine.

You can see, only the areas on the right which were under the die, were cut by the machine.
For the lg background, I sponged it using the purple inks, going from darker at the bottom & fading to the white on top. A little water was splattered on it to add the spots. The die cut hydrangea petals were sprinkled around & the greeting added along w/ some gems.
