Happy Easter!

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Today I'm sharing a few of the cards I created to celebrate the most important day in my Savior's life. I didn't get any Easter specific stamp sets this year, but I hope you'll agree the verse from the Rose Wonder set does the job...




Card: Blushing Bride, Thick Whisper White, Pistachio Pudding and Strawberry Slush (latter two retired)
Ink: Blushing Bride
Stamp set: Rose Wonder (verse)
Tools and embellishments: Botanicals Builder Thinlits, Clear Wink of Stella and Basic Rhinestones
Adhesives: Stampin' Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.

Butterfly EPB Box

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

I'm enjoying my first vacation in Cornwall for over 30 years, staying with my Stampin' Sister Julia. Yesterday I had the honor of being the guest Demonstrator at her monthly team training. Today's project is the first of 2 that I shared with them. I can't claim the credit for this one, because I've adapted it from Linda Parker's Cracker Top Box that she designed last year...


Here's the little box that fits into the top...

Card: Watermelon Wonder, Whisper White and Vellum
Ink: Watermelon Wonder
Stamp set: Watercolor Wings
Tools and Embellishments: Envelope Punch Board, Simply Scored and Stylus, Butterfly TIEF, Bold Butterflies Thinlits, Basic Pearls

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.

You might already know that I absolutely love the Rose Wonder bundle from Stampin' Up! If not, check out my other creations with it here. At first glance the photo below looks as if I've only used the bundle. Yep?

Ink: Blushing Bride ink and reinker
Stamp set: Rose Wonder
