Now on with the projects.
This card came together in a matter of a few minutes.
All it took was a card base, some masking paper, a few Ranger Distress inks
and some Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby's private brand) clear stickers.
I don't own a single Easter themed stamp so I was trying to find something
and I came across these stickers and made them work.
I made a side step card , added 3 crosses and a pretty ring of flowers, also added strips of grass,
Easter Lilly's, gave it some sparkle with Wink of Stella, greens and lime green stickles for the flower centers. I think it turned out pretty good! ~Anna
I had some paper from Authentique called Symbolic from a collection called Faith. The colors are very muted, but I loved the design. The paper was double sided and so I used the one that had three circular patterns across the width. I cut the two outside circles down to where they attached to the central circle leaving about ¾” still attached on each side. I then carefully cut each of the two outside circles straight down the center lengthwise and folded each to the middle to form sort of a gate card. I cut the words and the cross accents from bronze colored vinyl and the center cross from a purple vinyl on my Cricut Explore. The cartridge used is New Testament. ~Denise
I loved making this card. I used whisper white cardstock and stamped Deep Red's Lily Blossom stamp along the edge with Memento Luxe Ink and clear embossing powder. I water colored the stamped images. I used copper metallic cardstock and a Taylored Expressions die At The Cross 3 but I purposely left the chads in the die cut. I painted just a hint of blue around the cross. I mounted the whisper white front on pale green cardstock then placed it on a black card base. The sentiment is a Craft Smart stamp. Have a blessed Easter. ~ Gracie
I had no idea what kind of card to make so I enlisted my mother in law to help
(since she's a card maker too!) She suggested Easter Lillies. She picked the design from the Silhouette design store. I picked all of the colors & printed it on white paper and then cut it out & assembled. I love that feature! ~Jennifer

Don't forget our daily challenge! Visit us each day for a new challenge.
Today's Inspiration Saturday Challenge
is to pick a challenge from November 2015 and one from January 2016
and create a card combining the two.
So maybe you pick a card sketch or C.A.S.E. card from November and a
color or technique challenge from January and create a card with them.
Let's see what the DT members came up with...
The challenge today was to choose one from November and one from January. The November challenge I chose was water coloring and the January 30th was a CASE and it also used water coloring techniques. I decided to case the card and watercolor. The card base is a light green from Michaels. The flowers are from a digital stamp set I purchased from Paper Garden (designed by Cathrine St. Clair). The water colors are from my grandchildren' craft box in my craft room - they are crayola! The die cut sentiment is from Little B. I added some clear rhinestones. ~ Gracie
