Easter Blessings

Hi there everyone! Are you ready for VSN? Have you taken a look at the shopping list yet? We've been having a blast. Jennifer is here now and Shirley will arrive tonight. Today's agenda includes our big Seattle shopping trip - including the A Muse store! Are you all jealous???

Since it's officially spring (for a few days now), it's time for some Easter cards. Todays card features my Creative Memories Cutting system - one of those tools I just don't know how I ever lived with out!

I started by cutting out three ovals from different LilyKate Basic Grey papers and matting on Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery Ovals and then piercing around the edges. They look surprisingly like.... Easter Eggs! LOL

Next I stamped stamped Easter Blessings by Stampendous on Whisper White and colored with prismacolors and mineral spirits. I then trimmed the piece and ran through my Cuttlebug with the D'Vine Swirls embossing folder. I then pierced around the edges and matted on Bashful Blue with thin pop dots.

I don't usually use white as the base for my cards, but it just seemed fitting since eggs are white. I used my stamp-a-majig to line up the Three Eggs stamp by Stampendous across the bottom of the card and then colored them in with prismacolors.

I layed down a mat of Basic Grey paper, added two photo corner punches and glued down the easter egg cutouts and sentiment. I finished the card off with a little organdy bow and some Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds sparkles.
