Easter Tulips

I am making Easter cards and pulled out a favorite set called Easter Blessings, 2015, by Stampin’ Up, retired several years ago. The greeting is from Joy Clair, Easter Greetings, 2019, also retired.

I used the colors Gina K Designs Sweet Corn for SU So Saffron, and SU Mango Melody and Pear Pizzazz for the tulips and scalloped cardstock layer. I chose to watercolor these flowers.

He Lives

I completed several Easter cards this year. Most are being sent to distant relatives or older people who are not getting out, due to the virus and their health. Here is one of the ones completed.

Supplies used include: Banner Blessings stamp set from Maymay Made It, SU Framed Tulip embossing folder (retired), GKD/Thermoweb stitched rectangle dies, GKD Turquoise Sea cardstock, a combination of Spectrum Noir and Copic markers, and white paper from who knows where. I have many kinds of white cardstock and can’t remember which kind was pulled for this image.

This card will be entered in the Global Design Project for Easter cards.

Fancy Fold Easter Blessings

Butterfly Easter Blessings

I love fancy fold cards. I watched a video, by Connie Stewart (
https://simplysimplestamping.com/fancy-fold-easter-card-simple-stamping/ ) on Saturday and began making a card using supplies I had on hand.

I used Jelly Bean Green cardstock by Gina K Designs for the card base. I used Echo Park Spring Fling Patterned Paper. The yellow piece on the flap and the circle is Wild Dandelion, also from Gina K Designs. The butterfly image is long ago retired from Stampin’Up called Butterfly Prints with matching punch. I found a sentiment in the set Springtime Baskets from Gina K Designs, illustrated by Claire Brennan. This was a fun card to make.
