Easter Blessings

20230317_195623009_iOSI follow a number of paper crafters and enjoy seeing their creative ideas.  Every now and then, I see something that is not Stampin’Up but is an item I feel is needed for my stamping library.  Cross of Hope is a die from Simon Says Stamps.  The sentiment – Easter Blessings – is from Gina K Designs, also purchased thru Simon Says.  The color purple was not chosen because I know how many of you love purple, but rather for the richness of purple being a color for royalty as is Our Lord. 

20230317_195646574_iOSThe “old wooden cross” is a creative idea Debbi is credited with,  I was thinking of a gold cross but Debbi said no – use a wooden cross.  I am using DSP that is worn – like the old wooden cross Our Lord was nailed to.  The cross is raised as you can see in the image to our right.  The purple marbled DSP layer under the white is from the retired Simply Marbleous DSP that Stampin’ Up featured in a Sale-A-Bration campaign several years ago.  The varying shades of Gorgeous Grape provide the perfect background for our old wooden Cross.  The sentiment is very elegant and softens the overall feel of the card front.  The sentiment is set up on the Staparatus allowing you to quickly stamp without having to worry about the wording being straight and centered. 

20230317_195530995_iOSThe message layer is simple – a strip of our Simply Marbleous DSP and two small wooden crosses. 

As a reminder, April Stamp Camp is March 30, 31, and April 1st.  As always, I appreciate your notifying me as soon as you can with what day you plan on attending, and which cards you choose to make.  Cards to Go is also available if you will be out of town, are not feeling up-to-par, or if the weather is not conducive to traveling.  The current weather prediction is that all 3 days will be in the 50’s with rain on 3/30 and 4/1.  But we know the prediction will change between now and then.. Let me know if you have any concerns or questions.
