I can't ever publish cards that I send to my family ahead of a holiday because my daughters see my blog. So here are a couple of the Easter cards that I made.


This card is for my two grandsons to share. I bought the bunny die but not the stamp set so I freehanded is face.


The bunny is popped up on dimensionals and attached to the tag which is also popped up.

Paper: White, Kraft
Ink: Black, Sweet Blush for nose (PTI)
Other: Pink Pirouette marker (SU), Black Pigma marker, thread pulled off of a piece of canvas material, tag die (forget which one), So Sweet die (PTI), dimensionals


Here is another card.



I first stamped Rejoice in Hawaiian Shores and then I overstamped it with Versamark. I added Perfect Pearls over the Versamark. 




SUPPLIES:
Stamps: Rejoice (SSS)
Paper: White, Hawaiian Shores (PTI)
Ink: Soft Stone, Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Green Parakeet, Ocean Tides (PTI), Versmark

PAPER: White, Ripe Avocado 
INK: Hibiscus Burst, Scarlet Jewel, Green Parakeet

Paper: White (pti), Basic Black, Melon Mambo (SU)

Happy Retirement

I made this card back in June but never got around to posting it on my blog. A man from our church retired and was moving to Arizona so the church had a party for him. This is the card I made for him. I don't know if there are mountains where he is going in Arizona but he will be leaving behind lots of mountains here in Washington state.





I didn't have the dies to cut out the car or camper so I fussy cut around them.



Stamps: Petite Places: Happy Camper (PTI)
Paper: White, Soft Stone (PTI), Old Olive, Bliss Blue (SU)
Ink: Enchanted Evening, Classic Kraft (PTI), Versafine Onyx Black
Other: Scene It: Mountain View die (PTI), Nestability circle die, dimensionals

Get Well Flowers in a Jar

Today I have a get well card.


I've seen others stamp the pint jar on acetate and I really wanted to do that but no matter what I tried it did not stamp crisp and it never really dried.  So I die cut the jar from white cardstock and stamped it in black. I then stamped the flower stems and amazingly they lined up pretty well with the stamping on the card.  Next I watercolored a little Aqua Mist to look like water but the SU Whisper White paper did not take the water well and swelled up immediately.  So then I thought I would die cut the jar once again from acetate and just place that over the top of the white cardstock jar. I'm pretty happy with that solution. You can see how it reflects in the pic below.




Lastly I stamped the sentiment and added some Rainstones.  

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!


Stamps: Larger Than Life, Pint Jar, Graceful Greetings II (PTI)
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black (SU)
Ink: New Leaf, Limeade Ice or Simply Chartreuse (can't remember which), Aqua Mist, Summer Sunrise, Canyon Clay (PTI)
Other: Pint Jar die, Rainstones (PTI), dimensional foam tape under jar, acetate (from small PTI stamp set), Thermoweb Memory Tape Runner XL (to attach acetate)
