Happy Friday! I hope you have had a great week!! With Easter just a mere week away, Jennifer asked us to create Easter projects this week for Fabulous Fabulous over on the Sisters in Stamping blog. I decided to pull out the Host stamp set Tranquil Tulip to create a fun spray of flowers for my Easter card. I paired it with some fun crushed curry ribbon and a leftover piece of crumb cake card stock that I had run through the Big Shot with the Basket Weave dynamic folder. This fantastic folder can be earned for free along with a coordinating stamp set (see my card from last week here) with a qualifying $100 order during Sale-a-Bration (hurry, this promotion ends on March 31st!), but you will be able to purchase just the folder in the new annual catalog coming out in June! I chose some fun pastel colors from the Subtles collection for my card including pink pirouette and soft sky and added in old olive and daffodil delight from the Brights and crushed curry from the Regals. The Easter sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, a MUST-HAVE stamp set for any card maker. I cut it out using the new Classic Label punch. If you look really closely, I smudged some daffodil delight ink in the upper right corner of my stamped panel, so went back over that area really lightly with a stampin' sponge and soft sky ink to mimic the sky. I think I pulled it off, maybe?!
Here is another view of my card. If you haven't had a chance to use this awesome Host stamp set, I highly recommend it! And for more Easter project ideas and inspiration please be sure to hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog to check out what the other designers created this week.
