Easter Blessings

I’m getting a jump start on Easter cards. I stamped The Old Rugged Cross background stamps (Divinity Designs) in GKD Warm Glow Ink on Ivory CS, then cut with the largest Deckle Rectangle die from Pawsitively Pawsome  Designs, matted with Bubblegum Pink on a Grass Green card base. The flowers and sentiment are from the Daffodil set by Divinity Designs, cut with the matching die. Colored with Copics Y04, Y08, Y18, G24, G46, R81, R83. The vase was cut with a Marvy punch – this is the reverse side of one of the vases I cut a couple of weeks ago for Valentines when I cut the design upside down. Nice that the reverse side worked. I’m entering this in the CAS Colors & Sketches #358 and Simon Says Wednesday Add a Sentiment

Love is in the Air

I made a batch these cards to send to our Rainbow Girls who are in college – a little love note from home. The heart branch was stamped in Red Velvet. It is from the Birthday Blessings set that was part of the Birthday Essentials kit released by Gina K Designs in January 2015. The sentiment is from Geo Thanks, also by Gina K, released in January 2018. I used an old pack of Valentine patterned card stock by Martha Stewart to punch out the vase, which is an old Marvy punch that I’ve had forever. I had the vases almost all cut when I realized the hearts were upside down. Luckily it’s double sided, and the reverse isn’t specifically Valentine related, so it can be used for another project. I’m having fun with a lot of new stuff, but it’s fun to pull out some of my older stuff to play in the  Retro Rubber Challenge. Their current theme is “Love is the in Air” using Red, White and Pink.
