He is Risen

The Sun Rays Die is one of my favorites.  It can easily take center stage on a card.  In this case, I think it makes a great background to the cross from the Easter Blessings Die.

He is Risen

Using Pineapple Smoothie (CS-0026) card stock, I cut out the Sun Rays Die (DI-0108) and using Craft Glue (AD-0111) adhered it to the front of a piece from the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051).  I adhered that to a Sweet Pear (CS-0095) card base using Craft Glue.

I used Mirror Gold (CS-0136) to cut out the cross image from the Easter Blessings Die (DI-0401) and popped it up on the card using Foam Squares (AD-0085)  .  [there are matching stamps to this set and it does come in a bundle, I will list them in the supply list below].

He is Risen4

Using Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041), I stamped the sentiment from the Hope Anchors Bundle (BD-0341) onto a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock and cut it out using the coordinating die.

He is Risen3

I took a Journey Gold Marker (IP-0103) and outlined the die cut image.  I popped up the sentiment onto the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0084) and then applied Journey Glaze (AD-0033).

He is Risen

Baby

I love the Spring Filled Prints.  The prints are great for Easter and Baby cards too.  So pretty.

Using the Journey Circles Dies (DI-0039), I cut a circle frame from Lemon Grass (CS-0019) cardstock.  Then I cut another circle out of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock.  I stamped the image in Rock Candy (IP-0028) ink from the Always Here (SS-0338) stamp set. [I really love this stamp set].  I colored in the image using Journey Color Burst Pencils (JM-0077).

Baby

I cut a piece of the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051) and adhered it to a Lemon Grass (CS-0019) card base. Then I adhered the Whip Cream circle and the Lemon Grass circle frame.  Using the Baby Prints Bundle (BD-0268), I stamped the Baby sentiment in Lemon Drop (IP-0043) ink and cut it out using the coordinating die.  Using the same die, I cut out a piece of Lemon Drop (CS-0018) cardstock and adhered the Baby a little offset.  Popped it up on the card front with Foam Squares (AD-0085).

To finish off the card, I added some Sweet Candy Drops (AC-0275).

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Happy Birthday Lamb

On a piece of Catalina Splash (CS-0114) card stock, adhere 2 pieces from the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051) using Easy Glide (AD-0081).  Then using the Border Basics Die (DI-0144), cut a piece of Catalina Splash (CS-0114) to adhere over the seam where the 2 pieces of the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051) meet.  Add a piece of Special Day Organza Ribbon (AC-0316) and tie the bow to the left.  Make a triple bow out of the Bubble Gum Thread (AC-0130) and adhere it to the Organza bow by using about a 5″ piece of Bubble Gum Thread to tie them together.   This panel will get popped up using Foam Squares (AD-0085) onto a Whip Cream (CS-0040) card base.

Using the Treat Label (DI-0037) cut out a piece of Catalina Splash (CS-0114) card stock. Then using the Journey Circle Dies (DI-0039) cut out a piece Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock.  Run the Whip Cream piece through the Layered Scallops Embossing Folder (EF-0018).  Pop up the Whip Cream circle onto the Catalina Splash label and pop that up onto the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085) for both.

Added Journey Glaze and Sparkle Cuts to the lambs fur.

You will stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink onto a strip of Whip Cream (CS-0040).  This piece will be slipped into the Photo Pin Element (AC-0103) and pushed into one of the Foam Squares (AD-0085).  Stamp the lamb in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink onto a piece of  Whip Cream (CS-0040) and cut out using Details Pro Shears (TO-0063).  Color the grass area using watered down Fresh Forest Liquid Color (IP-0131) and a Small Blending Brush (TO-0097).  The balloon you will color in with Bubble Gum Silk (IP-0092) and a Small Blending Brush.  You can add a little Bubble Gum Silk to the lamb’s cheeks but they should be very a faint pink.

Happy Birthday Lamb

Be Mine

The images from the Storybook Occasions Stamp Set (SS-0538) are so adorable!!  I think they would look really cute on a baby card or baby shower decorations.

This card was fairly easy and really fun to make. It was one of the four projects that were part of the last FSJ Presents/FSJ Live.

Be Mine Bunny

Using the I Heart (EF-0014) embossing folder, emboss a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock and then add some Black Licorice Silk (IP-0041).  Using Easy Glide (AD-0081) adhere it to a Fresh Forest (CS-0011) card base.

Dutch Door/Barn Door Card | Best Wishes

I have heard this type of card called a Dutch Door Card or Barn Door Card.  I thought I would share this with you so that you can see more of the prints in action from the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051).

Best Wishes Dutch Door4

I layered some of the patterns from the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051)  onto pieces of Lemon Grass (CS-0019) before adhering them to a Bubble Gum (CS-0099) card base.  Using the Spring Botanicals (SS-0544), I stamped the flower image on Whip Cream (CS-0040) in Watermelon Fusion (IP-0027) ink and then the stems in Lemon Grass (IP-0022) ink.  I used the Journey Ovals (DI-0042) to cut out the stamped piece.  Using Lemon Grass (IP-0022) ink, I stamped the Best Wishes from the Everyday Script Bundle (BD-0344) onto a piece of Bubble Gum (CS-0099) card stock before cutting it out using the coordinating die.

Best Wishes Dutch Door3

Using Sparkle Silk (IP-0126) and a Small Blending Brush (TO-0097), I brushed the Sparkle Silk onto the floral image.

Best Wishes Dutch Door4

Using the Just Write Gel Pens (JD-0060), I traced over the letters in Best Wishes to add a little more interest.

Best Wishes Dutch Door5

I adhered the pieces onto the card base using Easy Glide (AD-0081.  I still felt that it needed something so I added some Fashion Gold (AC-0292).  I really think they helped to finish off the card.

Best Wishes Dutch Door1

And because I am curious, what do you call this type of card, Dutch Door or Barn Door.  Drop me a comment and let me know.

I Love, Love, Love the new Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051) that is in the new Bloom This Way Mini Trends Catalog (CL-0030)!!!!!  They are so beautiful!!!!

I stamped the saying Best Wishes from the Everyday Script Bundle (BD-0344) in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink onto a piece of Bubble Gum (CS-0099) card stock and cut it out using the coordinating die.

Best Wishes 1

I added Sparkle Silk (IP-0126) to the Best Wishes piece and well as the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051) piece.  Using Easy Glide (AD-0081) I adhered the Spring Filled Prints piece to a piece of Watermelon Fusion (CS-0039) before adhering it to the Whip Cream (CS-0040) card base.  Using Foam Squares (AD-0084 and AD-0085), I popped up the Best Wishes onto the lower right corner of the card front.

Best Wishes 3

I love that the focal point of this card is really the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051).  They are so beautiful that they really should take center stage.
