Happy Monday Everyone. Hope you had a great weekend. It has been pleasantly warm here which meant I just wanted to be outdoors enjoying the warmth while it lasted!! I did take some time to create a couple of cards over the weekend. Making cards is so relaxing for me. Here's one I created using the new flowering branch image.

Hello everyone. I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend. Did Easter sneak up on you like it did me? I am can't believe yesterday was Easter! Even though Easter is past, I do have a couple of Easter cards to share with you today.
This first one features the new Tails up Bunny, which is just too cute! I paired it with the Some bunny loves you greeting and the jelly bean background. I colored the jelly beans with various markers and layered everything on this bright pink CS.

Happy Monday Everyone. Trust you had a great weekend and found some time to get creative. I have had fun playing around with the newest images DRS Designs has just released. They are beautiful and perfect for this Easter season.
My first card uses the new Holy Week image, which I stamped wither Versafine black ink onto water color paper. The image was water colored with various Distress Oxide inks. It was die cut with s SB square die. I die cut several squares and glued them all together to give some dimension to the image. For the background I sponged three different Distress Oxide inks, splattered some water onto it and then die cut it with a Fawn Lawn stitched rectangle die. The Easter Greetings image was stamped with Versafine Black ink and heat embossed with clear EP. I really like how this turned out.
The cross and greeting were stamped onto white CS, die cut and layered onto plum CS. The little cross was colored with Copics. The white panel was embossed with a SB EF. Everything was attached to a matching plum card base. A few rhinestones were added to complete the look.
I hope you have a blessed Passion Week as you look forward to Easter this Sunday. Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Monday everyone. Hope you had a great weekend. I have a couple of Easter cards to share with you today. They were quick and easy to create.
I started with a white panel and sponged on some yellows and even an orange DO inks using a Gina K stencil. For this first card I stamped the Happy Easter and small cross onto white CS, colored the cross with some Copics, die cut and layered it onto a die cut circle that had the same yellow inks sponged around the edges. The stenciled panel was die cut with a Fawn Lawn stitched rectangle die and glued onto the white card base. Easy peasy!
This next card is very similar. I used the same stencil, stamps and inks. This time I stenciled in the center circle with the same inks as the rays, then stamped the greeting along the bottom. The small cross was stamped onto white CS, colored with Copics, fussy cut and attached to the center with foam adhesive strips.
You can see these images as well as the newest Easter/Spring images here at DRS Designs on line store.

Happy Monday everyone. Trust you had a great weekend and found some time to get creative. I've been enjoying playing with the newest St. Patrick's Day images from DRS Designs. My first card features the new Arched Window image and the little frog/toad from the Toad Made for you Recognition image.
To create my little scene I first stamped the silhouette shamrocks with Memento Bamboo ink, then I stamped the wood grain image with Distress Antique Linen ink. I sponged on some DO inks to color in the scene. The Arched window was stamped onto white CS with Memento Black ink, colored with Copics and fussy cut. I did the same thing with the little toad and the top hat from the Top Hat St. Patrick's Day Greeting. Once everything was attached to the panel the Get Your Irish On greeting was stamped with Versafine Black ink and then the panel was added to the white card base.
My next card is rather simple, but I really like the look. I did the same technique for the background that I did a couple of weeks ago. The silhouette clover image was stamped with some Altenew green ink. I stamped the image twice before reinking to give the two different shades of green. The Top Hat St. Patrick's Day greeting was stamped with Memento Black ink, colored with copics and die cut. I layered it on a couple more die cut rectangles to it some dimension,
I really like the simple look of this card. It would be easy to mass produce. I'm going to look through my stamps and see what other solid images I have that could be used to create a background like this. Easy peasy!
