He is not here, for he has risen – Easter Cards

This being the Easter weekend, I decided I would share my Easter cards for the lovely people at my Church with you. For this project I used two stamp sets. His Love which has the beautiful cross, is from the annual catalogue and unfortunately is retiring when the catalogue ends in May. The other set is Gift of Hope from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalogue and has the great verse from Matthew 28:6, He is not here for he has risen.

Gift of Hope – January-June Mini Catalogue page

Card Base 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ scored and folded on the long edge at 4 1/8″

1st layer – Basic White Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″

Inside layer – Basic White Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″

Cross – Basic White Cardstock 3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″

cross was stamped with Versamark, covered in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set with a heat tool.

I then fussy cut the cross.

The rhinestones were coloured with Stampin’ Blends and left to dry.

I found that the Seaside Spray and Purple Posy Blends were a bit light for my liking, so used Night of Navy and Highland Heather instead.

On the front of the cardstock you need to make sure that you have the He Lives! and flowers stamped low enough that the cross will fit on card front.

If you do not own the Purple Posy inkpad as it was discontinued, you can replace it with Highland Heather

I am so sad that these 2019-2021 in-colours will be retiring in May, but we have some great new colours coming for the 2021-2023 In-colours.

Don’t forget stocks of retiring products are whilst stock last, so don’t miss out. You can visit my shop to see what is retiring soon.

Until next time, happy Easter, happy crafting

Dragonfly Thank You Card

This is a very unusual colour combination for me. I do not usually do pink, but thought the pinks with the sparkle from the wink of Stella would work so well.

Dragonfly Garden – Jan – June 2021 page 27

Card Base – Rich Razzleberry Cardstock 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ scored and folded @ 4 1/8″
1st layer – Melon Mambo Cardstock 5 3/4″ x 4″
2nd layer – Flirty Flamingo Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″
3rd layer – Very Vanilla Cardstock 5 1/2″ x 3 3/4″
4 Dragonflies – Very Vanilla Cardstock 9″ x 2″

The colour was bled to colour the dragonflies using Wink of Stella.
The ribbon was coloured with Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends

For some reason I forgot to take a photo of the inside of the card, but I stamped one of the Dragonflies inside in Flirty Flamingo.

I do like this set and will definitely be using it more.

Until next time, happy crafting

Boho Indigo Product Medley

I spotted this medley straight away in the catalogue, but hadn’t got round to buying it. We then used it for a Team event and that was it, I had to have it. I only bought the refill pack as it was the papers that had really caught my attention, but now wish I had bought the whole suite which included stamps, dies and ribbons.
