Just sharing a card I started last week and finished up this week, just in time for Easter.
The sweet girl + basket and the words are from Pretty Pink Posh, as are the sequins. Let’s be honest: I’m not the best color’er, but, good gosh, people, I try. I colored her in with markers and then added a few extra details with colored pencils and a white gel pen + some Glossy Accents and a Wink of Stella glitter pen (it’s subtle but there on the ears). I think she turned out alright.
The banner was cut with a die from Lawn Fawn (LOVE IT), and the patterned paper is from a stack of paper from My Favorite Things. Crazy thing. I colored the girl in first and went looking for patterned paper. I discovered that I am COMPLETELY lacking in purple patterned papers so I was totally lucky to find this piece in my MFT stash. I guess I could have went to the craft store (Oh, the horror! Hee!) to find something else, but I decided I could make do. Yep. Make do. (Translation: Not allowing myself to be tempted at the craft store by all the other stuff at the craft store seemed like a good idea at the time… because… seriously… who goes for one piece of paper and leaves with just one piece of paper? Not I, people. Not I. Anyhoo, I digress.)

Got a card to share with you today.
Ta-da! Cha-cha! 😉
Made this one with a new faith-based stamp set I designed for Technique Tuesday that was just released as part of small assortment of faith-based products.
The set is a bit on the light-hearted side. Fun to do.
For the card, I simply die-cut a circle and then stamped on top with a sentiment and the set’s flower. I added color to the flower with markers. Easy peasy.
Because I really wanted the circle to stand out, I added a larger circle under it and then placed all those sequins around it. It took a little bit of time to arrange them, but I sure dig the look.
Alright! That’s what I have for you. Be back again later, gators.

I’m sharing two projects today with you!
The first project uses the Duke’s Gang stamp set from IndigoBlu.
I mean, hello, dogs! You can’t go wrong with dogs!
I masked the two dog images together by stamping one dog and then stamping him a second time on a sticky note. I cut him out, placed him on the first image and then stamped the little dog on top. The result? Something that looks like the two dogs are next to each other. Easy peasy!
The second card uses the Tall Wildflowers stamp from Crafty Individuals.
I was feeling kinda of artsy when I made this one. I sponged dye inks onto cardstock and then flicked water droplets on top. I let the ink dry and then stamps the flowers with black ink right on top.
An easy technique, but it is such a fun technique to do! You get a different look every single time. I love that!
Alright! That’s what I have. Now, be sure to check out all these blogs and comment for your chance to win the grand prize!!
