CASE the Catalog - Easter Promise

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you one of the CASE the Catalog Swap cards that I got back in November.  Easter is around the corner and I wanted to share this cute card with you today.  I am not sure who made this card in the swap group but I love what they did.  The card that was CASED (Copy and Share Everything) from the Easter Promise Card on the top of page 44 of the January-June Mini Catalog.  Here's a look at the card I received.

Tips & Tricks: 

For this card the card base was made from Purple Posy Cardstock (5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4).  There's a strip of Purple Posy Cardstock that has been embossed with the Spripty 3D embossing folder along with the stitched nestled label die cuts.  The center square was made with the largest square in the Stitched Shapes Dies.  

The flowers and the Happy Easter Sentiment were both heat embossed with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and then heat set.  The flowers where colored in with stampin blends in the following colors; Purple Posy, Rococo Rose, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive.  Once the flowers where colored they were cut out using snips.  


Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your weekend.  If you need any of the supplies you can order them in my online store by clicking on the items in the shopping list below.

Painted Poppies & Peaceful Moments Video Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the card that I made last night during my weekly Facebook Live.  Each week I do a Facebook Live featuring a fun project or projects to you right in your home at 8 pm CST.  This week I played with products from the new Mini Catalog.  I used products from the Peaceful Poppies Suite.  Here's a look at the project.

Tips & Tricks: 

For my card today I used the Painted Poppies Stamp Set along with the Peaceful Moments Bundle to create the beautiful floral card.  I love the Painted Poppies Stamp set and the Peaceful Moments stamp set they are both in my top 10 for the Spring.  The Painted Poppies Stamp Set is inspired by a field of poppies and features beautiful line-art images you can fill in with your choice of coloring techniques.  The Peaceful Moments Stamp set features greetings, greetings, and more greetings. Whatever the situation, the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set has the words you need to express your thoughts.  Here's a look at the entire suite of products.  
Being a watercolor person I love the designer series paper because I can create a card without having to drag out any paints.  It's all done for me without any mess.  Which was why I pulled it into my card today.  
But the main star of this card is the Poppy Moments Dies.  With these dies you can create fancy, layered die-cut poppies, leaves, and more to add beauty and depth to your handmade cards, scrapbooks, journals, and other paper crafts using the Poppy Moments Dies. Pair the dies with the coordinating Peaceful Moments Stamp Set to add heartfelt sentiments to your projects for birthdays, congratulations, sympathy, thank you, and more.  These dies are so easy and fun to play with.
