DCBD #121

I really love the card sketch we were given this week. It was a very fun one to do. Yes, there was lots of detail to this one, but it is well worth it. I hope a lot of you will try this one out also. Let us know on the DCBD blog that you did it and posted it on your blog too. I really try to comment everyone if you do post it.


I do not have any Easter stamp sets. I really wanted to make an Easter card for this challenge though. Below is what I came up with. There is not a whole lot of rubber stamping in this. There is more cutting and die cuts in this instead. I really wanted a saying and knew that I didn't have any stamps that said anything about Easter. I remembered last evening that I had rub-ons and thought maybe it had an Easter saying in it. Yes, it did! I used it to finish up this card. I hope you like it.

Recipe for this card:

Stamps: Itty Bitty Buds (hostess stamp set)

Ink: so saffron, pretty in pink, almost amethyst, and certainly celery

Tools: stamping sponge, paper piercing tool, sizzix birds and blooms scallop circle, sizzix swirls scribbles, ticket corner punch, matchbox die label, boho blossoms punch, and scallop oval punch

Accessories: soft subtle brads, 1/4" pretty in pink grosgrain ribbon, and chit chat rub-ons

Very nice card, I also don't have a Cross for Easter, so this is a good idea... Greetings.
