Seashore Blog Hop: Easter Blossoms

Can you believe March is almost over? And Easter is just around the corner! I don’t know about you, but here on Vancouver Island it is definitely starting to feel like Spring: lots of birdsong, lots of buds peeking out, crocuses and cherry blossoms starting to bloom. I sure love this time of year!

Today the Seashore Stampers are doing our usual monthly blog hop, and this time our theme is Easter. I hope you’ll hop along to see all the other projects after you check out mine below!

To create this card, I used a variety of products from the Spring Mini and Annual Catalogue. I knew I wanted to use Pretty Perennials, the gorgeous bundle inspired by Million Sales Achiever Dena Rekow. And I knew I wanted my favourite 2020 In Color, Magenta Madness, to be featured. I started playing with the stamps and figured out what I was doing as I went! 😁

I ended up using the masking technique a little bit, so that the flowers could overlap, and I used embellishments in each flower centre. I wasn’t quite happy with all the white space, though, so I started looking through my die sets to figure out how I could use some shapes to add another layer of interest. Curvy dies to the rescue! They allowed me to cut off a ‘curvy corner’ of the white card front, and I added the Dandy Garden paper behind. Finished off with a sentiment from Timeless Tulips, my Easter card was complete! So don’t be afraid to mix and match items from different bundles, different stamp sets, different occasions and different catalogues – just pick and choose what works for YOUR card!
