Today's set is called Easter Hope and as you can see it's a great mix of sentiments along with three beautiful images.
My first card uses the larger of the Tulips which I coloured using Prisma Pencils and OMS. I've stamped the front petal twice to pop it up adding dimension. Hope you can see this!
I used a Spellbinder die to trace one side of the oval shape around the image and cut this out by hand. A couple of eyelets with some AnnaBelle natural cotton cord threaded through adds the sentiment tag which was cut with another Spellbinder die.
Two rows of staggered scalloped card set with some AnnaBelle Sprinkles complete the front of this card.
My second card also uses the large Tulip but this time I clear embossed the image onto some Pearlized card for a very subtle effect. IRL this looks so pretty as the light catches the clear embossing.
I used a corner punch on the green card. Die cut a tag for this lovely sentiment, which is stamped in SU Pear Pizzazz onto cream card to match the base card. By punching single slots either end of the tag I could thread some AnnaBelle green striped ribbon through the sentiment and tie off to one side.
Just a couple of Sprinkles to balance this and I have a very CAS Easter Card.
Just one more to share and this one features Gold embossing.
I love this simple styled image and am pretty sure sponging will feature on some of the Belles and Bellas cards using this one! Not me though ...... I kept this very clean and clear.
I've embossed the image onto Whisper White in Gold. Then stamped the first part of the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black (masking Alleluia!). Gold Embossing Powder was used to stamp Alleluia onto a scrap of card, which I then cut to size and added to the card front with foam tape.
The image sits on a piece of Tan American Craft Card with some AnnaBelle Gold Cord wrapped around the bottom.
This is attached to a base of my favourite Mocha ribbed card with double sided tape.
OK....that's it for me today ..... it's time to go pay a visit to Kylie's Blog, I can't wait to see her beautiful creations with Easter Hope.
