Hello Crafty Friends,

We are getting closer to Easter.  I love Easter for all the cute little decorations, but also for the real reason, Jesus is Alive!

Today, I want to share with you a very simple card.

I used the Color Splash pencils to color in the Tiger Blooms.  I used my blender pen to spread the color and then added a little more color with the pencil to the middle area.

The sentiment is from Annual Celebration, which a must have set for all year long.

I hope you have found some inspiration to make your own Easter cards.

Supplies Used:
Stamp: Tiger Blooms ATS, Annual Celebration
Paper: Bubble Gum Cardstock, Whip Cream Cardstock, Color Splash Sheets, Spring Filled Pattern Paper
Ink: Black Licorice
Dies: Journey Ovals
Accessories:  Bubble Gum Satin Ribbon, Whip Cream Thread, Clear Bloom Accents
Colored with Color Splash Pencils

3/15/18 Stampin Friends Blog Hop

 Image may contain: textWelcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop!  This month's theme is No Rules.   If you are following along with the hop, you should have arrived from  Jenny's blog.

This month I decided to share with you some St. Patrick's Day fun, since that is the next holiday.  Now that I have my own house, I am loving creating projects to decorate with for the holidays.  I will share my project soon, but first, let me share the card I created.

The paper with the shamrock is our Through the Years Prints, that I just fussy cut till I got the area I wanted.  I then stamped my images and colored in the hat with my Color Burst pencils and did some blending with the Fusion Blender.

 Now, for the project.  I created the wooden shamrock that I found at Joanne's with the other side of the Through the Years printed paper.

It is hard to tell from the picture, but I added some Sparkle Silk to the whole hat.   I also splattered some over the whole project.
I hope you have found inspiration with my card and projects.  Remember to continue on the hop for more inspiration by going to Elizabeth's Blog next.

Stamp: Pot O'Gold
