Spring Flowers

This is my first card with the sweet (free gift stamp set) WPlus9 Tossed Florals. Stamped on watercolour paper and embossed with white EP. Painted with Distress Inks. As I had originally not planned on painting the blue background, I painted over the lines so that the flowers and leaves would pop.

I decided to use the large "hi" die cut so that I would get the pattern. Added an offset die to make a shadow image, and embossed the background to add texture. I just love this Stampin Up Dynamic Ruffled 3D embossing folder. Colourful and bold yet still CAS.

Of course, you get two cards this way ... and here's the negative version.

Two very different looks from the same supplies!

The CASology Challenge this week has the cue word PARENT. I'm going a bit back in time with this one ... a very old but fun stamp from All Night Media paired appropriately with sentiment from Art Impressions, and a lovely big brad to anchor it.

Happy Easter

It's CASology challenge time ... with the cue word CROSS.

As Easter is at the end of the week, I wanted to make a card for my mother. The Spirit of Easter is all about hope, love and joyful living ... all because He is Risen!

So I wish you all a Happy Easter ... may it be filled with the power and peace that comes from his resurrection.
