Egg-stra Special Card

Today I'm sharing an egg-stra special card created for Our Daily Bread Designs. I'm excited about the fun and lovely new release. I love the new Easter stamps, dies and papers... They're just perfect. This week our challenge at ODBD is a Sketch, and I decided to make an interactive card!


It seems like an ordinary card until you open it... It's a sweet Easter pop-up card, created with stamps and a die from the new release. First thing I did is cut and score the inside flap for the basket on the white card base. Once done I worked on the card design based on the sketch.

I decorated the front of the card with lace, ribbon and lots of dies including the new Grass Border die. The new coordinating papers add so much loveliness to the card. I layered the large doily with a smaller doily like label that is actually from a Christmas die set. The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed on vellum, die cut with a small circle die and adhered on top of the small label. I finished the front of the card with a small bow and a gold vintage button.

I stamped the basket and colored it with soft hues of brown. I stamped some eggs on patterned paper and fussy cut and adhere them to the basket. I also added a second sentiment that I stamped and heat embossed in gold on top of the basket.

Pears & Flowers Step Card

She is a great host... Love her! She challenged us to use something with a Fruit or Harvest theme... Yes, it's a Fruitful Harvest challenge!

I really wanted to create something special for Lee, so I took my time. Here is my design:

I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and two pears in gold. The first are from Flourishes' Over the Garden Gate stamp set, and the last are from Inky Antics' Holy Spirit's Fruit.

I colored the images with alcohol markers. Next I fuzzy cut and sponged them with a little Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.

I also heat embossed a sentiment from Flourishes' Spring Bouquet stamp set. I die cut the sentiment with Spellbinders French Frills set and sponged it very lightly, also with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I embellished the label altering anoth…
