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!

Speaking of Easter, I’ve got a terrific offer for you! When you place an order with me by April 5th, you’ll receive a tutorial bundle for 23 beautiful Easter- and Spring-themed projects. All the tutorials include a full product list, step-by-step instructions, and colour photos! You’re sure to find tons of inspiration for your Spring crafting! Again, this tutorial bundle is absolutely free when you order from me!

I hope you enjoyed my project! Now don’t forget to click on the buttons below to continue on the blog hop, and enjoy all the other Easter-themed creations! Click on “Previous” to visit Erica’s blog and “Next” to see what MiRan has created!

Seashore Blog Hop: Mother’s Day

 

The Seashore Stampers are hopping again, and this time our theme is Mother’s Day/feminine cards. I’m featuring a card I made using the Timeless Tulips bundle in the Spring Mini Catalogue. In fact, this card is almost exactly the same as the sample shown on page six – I’ve CASE’d the Catty!

This card is part of the Timeless Tulips Class by Mail I offered for the month of April. If you order the bundle, you will receive the kits and instructions to make five beautiful cards, as shown here. Since I couldn’t hold in-person classes this month, I thought Class-by-Mail would be fun! It’s not nearly as fun as getting together in person, but at least it keeps us crafting!

 

One thing is for sure, Mother’s Day (as well as many other celebrations) is looking pretty different this year. I hope you’ll take a moment to send a card to someone you care about – whether it’s your own mom, or someone else you admire and appreciate. It’s sure to brighten their day!

I hope you enjoyed my project! Now don’t forget to click on the buttons below to continue on the blog hop, and enjoy all the other Mother’s Day-themed creations! Click on “Previous” to visit Erica’s blog and “Next” to see what MiRan has created!

Happy Stampin’!
