Easter Blossoms with a Wee Bit O’ Green

My challenge this past weekend was to design an Easter/spring card that featured the new framelets Labels Collection and stayed within the Wee Bit O’ Green theme.  The card I came up with stayed within my guidelines.  What do you think?

Easter girl and envelope I used the lovely Easter Blossoms set from 2011.  Even though it is retired, it is one of my favorites.  The color scheme of Tempting Turquoise and Pear Pizzazz gives a breath of spring which I really need!  I used the large label die from the Label’s Collection but only put the top part of the Whisper White cs under the cutting edge – the bottom part of the cs remained on top of the cutting edge.  The result is the lovely curves you see above.  I have pre-cut all the front pieces with the label dies and have pre-stamped the blossom branch with Jet Black StazOn.  As we will be using the blossom branch image for our 4th card , I wanted to prevent any black residue on the stamp.  The blossoms are colored with Tempting Turquoise, Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz markers.  A small amount of Twitterpated Designer Series Paper and Pear Pizzazz pleated ribbon carries thru our Wee Bit O’ Green theme.  Note how elegant the blossom branch appears on the envelope.  Stampers at our Stamp Camp this weekend will have the opportunity to use the new Labels Collection for the inner card message.  Note the two samples below.Inside SmallInside large

         

 

 

 

 

 

 

We generally use the Top Note die for the inner card message when the card itself is a darker color.  Now we have another option!  As the label dies come in assorted sizes, we can die cut our label small, medium or large for our card message. 

Hope you can join us this weekend for our Wee Bit O’ Green stamp Camp this coming weekend.  If you plan on coming, drop me a quick E-mail as it helps plan on cutting paper.  However, you are more than welcome even if you don’t send an E-mail as we always have sufficient kits prepared.  Give me a call if you have any questions!  Blessings, Rosemary – 630.759.3089, paperrose01@aol.com
