Hello Everyone! It's the Easter week already. Do you have some egg coloring time on your schedules this week? I certainly do :-) I love coloring eggs and there are so many other traditions. So that means I usually color my eggs on Thursday which in Germany is called 'Gruendonnerstag' (lit.: Green Thursday) and if I'm not mistaken it translates as Maundy Thursday (please correct me if I'm wrong). It's also tradition in our family to have some green food on this Thursday like spinach etc. Then on Good Friday fish is on the menu (most likely salmon or tuna steaks for us) and I love to bake some traditional (and also try new recipes) cakes for the Easter weekend. Easter Sunday we like to celebrate with an ample Easter Brunch.
Well and I think my card I have for you today fits quite well for the theme Easter:
This beautiful cross is from a Heartfelt Creations stamp set (HCPC3450) and available from Dutch Paper Crafts HERE. As is the sentiment! Darlene put up a new video where she shows you the stamps and also matching dies from Spellbinders. Darlene always has awesome prices on her products and ordering is as easy as writing an emai!
The cross was stamped onto Neenah Classic Solar White extra smooth cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored using Copic markers. Then the cross was cut out by hand and adhered to the embellished cross using foam tape. The embellished cross is a Spellbinders die and also available HERE. DP is from Basic Grey, sorry can't remember from what collection as these were scraps.
The punched out flowers and leaves are made using Nellie Snellen rose punches. You can also order them from Darlene! She has not put up the video for these yet but they are already available. Just write her an email if you are interested!
I decorated the inside to match the outside and used a Clematis stamp (from the set HCPC 3454) to spice up the plain orange background paper a bit. I made another card using stamps from this set which I'll show you later this week! So stay tuned for more Heartfelt Creations projects from me this week!
Luv 'n Hugs,
