Easy Shabby Chic Easter Card
- Using an Online Printable Template -

Happy Easter Week! Today I'm sharing an easy to make Easter card. You don't need die cuts to make a card like this unless you want to!



Main Supplies:
Online Printable Egg Template
Haj Designs Digital Patterned Papers
Die Cuts | ODBD - Doily / Cheery Lynn Designs - Mini Butterflies 1 / Spellbinders - Scalloped Borders One
Embellishments | Eyelet Outlet: 12mm Jewel Bling - Clear Edge / May Arts Ribbon: Leaf Ribbon / SU: Linen thread
Finishes | Inks - Colorbox Mix'd Media Inx in Chiffon, Colorbox pigment ink in metallic gold / Dreamweaver Pearlescent Embossing Paste / Shimmerz Spray Sparkle
Miscelaneous | White and beige cardstock, Printer, Gold satin ribbon, beige paper chord, vellum, wide lace, 1" pearlescent lace, sponge dauber, stencil


As you may notice the background of the card is made of ripped borders that I sponged with pink ink and layered together with wide lace. The pretty shabby chic egg started out with a free printable template you can find online for kid's activities. I printed the template on patterned paper several times cutting borders on two of them to create layers for the egg... Easy! I embellished the card with lace, ribbon, jewels, a few decorative die cuts.

Hope you enjoyed this easy but lovely Easter card! You can try out making egg tags using the same technique I used for the card. Best of all is you can resize the free printable to fit any papercrafting project!

Pears & Flowers Step Card

You may know by now that I try to make time to create projects for some of my favorite challenges. I particularly enjoy the challenges back at the Mod Squad Challenge. This week the host is Lee... 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…

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home.

White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with youHERE.


I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern.

As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia …
