Happy Easter to all my friends who celebrate. Things around here are pretty quiet. Not much to do but craft on Easter weekend if you are Jewish. I decided I'd better take a break, post what I have made, and clean up. It's a pretty nice day here, so I think we will all head down to the beach for a nice walk later.
First up is a baby card that I made with my new Hello Foxy set as well as some paper scraps from Echo Park Hello Summer. This card is for Retro Sketches rs#57 and Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes. I did a little paper piecing on the fox, and the heart is popped up and covered with Glossy Accents.
Next up, another baby card, this one for this week's Dynamic Duos DD# 46. I used Autumn Rose as my deep pink, and Memento Angel Pink for my 2nd color choice. I was inspired by this card by Christina. I used Watercolor Wonder for the stripes, and Whale Wishes for everything else.
One more card for Dynamic Duos. This time, my 2nd color choice was Simply Chartreuse. I wanted to play around with my new Waltzingmouse Camellia set that I won.
Next up is another card inspired by Christina. I am linking up to this week's ColourQ cQc #182 and the Chevon Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. I've got chevrons on my Happy Harlequins, and they are stamped in a chevron pattern--double chevrons today. This card is also for this week's One Layer Wednesday challenge to use a shape repeatedly on a one layer card.
My next card is for this week's CASology week 37, where the key word is 'hope'. I used Amuse Fight Like A Girl and Paper Smooches Hope to make this card I hope I never have to use. Edited to add--bummer, I missed the CASology deadline...
My last three cards use the technique taught in this week's Make it Monday #109: Watercolor Stamping Plus Embossing. This technique is harder than Betsy makes it look in the video. Lots of my inks ran together to create a funny shade of brown. But, I did get it work a few times on some die cuts, so those were the ones I used to create my cards.
This card uses Hibiscus Burst and Winter Wisteria. I omitted the white embossing on the smaller buds, because there would have been almost no color showing if I didn't.
These next two cards use Hibiscus Burst, Berry Sorbet and Hawaiian Shores.
Well, that's it for me for this weekend, so far. I'm not going to type up all the supplies, but please let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for Visiting
