Twisted Easel With Love Is Kindness

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's card is another I've created with the gorgeous tulip image from the Love Is Kindness stamp set from Stampin' Up. It's also a twist on Monday's easel card. If click you missed that one or Tuesday's, click on the days so they will open in another tab.

The twisted easel is just as easy to create as the standard easel and looks even more stunning...

Card: Pear Pizzazz (10" x 5", 5" square, 2½" x 4" for layering and snippet for punching), Hello Honey (2¼" x 3 3/4"), Very Vanilla (2" x 3½" and snippet for punching), Best Year Ever DSP (two 4 3/4" squares) and Whisper White (snippet for newspaper wrap)
Ink: Memento Black and Hello Honey
Markers: Daffodil Delight and Wild Wasabi Blendies
Stamp Sets: Love Is Kindness and Indescribable Gift (sentiment)
Tools: Bracket Label Punch and Stampin' Dimensionals

To create the base card, score and fold the 10" x 5" piece of Pear Pizzazz card at 5", then from one end of that line to the corner diagonally opposite. Attach Best Year Ever DSP to the inside square and the 5" square.
Stamp the tulip image onto Very Vanilla card and color with Daffodil Delight and Wild Wasabi blendies.
Stamp the image onto Whisper White. Cut out the newspaper wrap and attach to the colored image.
Layer the stamped panel onto the Hello Honey and Pear Pizzazz pieces and attach to the DSP covered square.
Fold the card along the middle score line and attach the 5" square of Pear Pizzazz to the base by putting adhesive on the outer triangle and lining up.
Stamp the sentiment from the Indescribable Gift stamp set onto Very Vanilla in Hello Honey ink. Punch out with the Bracket Label punch and punch another from Pear Pizzazz card. Cut the Pear Pizzazz piece in half and attach to the back of the sentiment. Trim the points from the top and bottom and pop up onto the inside of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals to create the stopper for the easel.
