I made this Easter card using the Framed Frills Easel Card svg file and the free Easter Cross file from My Scrap Chick. I cut the card, cross, and words using my Sizzix Eclips machine. I also found some cool stamps and ink to add a few little designs.
My entry for the Spectrum Noir May Challange
|The card above is the card I will be entering into the Spectrum Noir Challenge for May :) |
I love this card!!! I made it for my mom for Mother's Day. For the base of the card I created a standup card by cutting pink cardstock 11" long by 5 1/2" wide, scored the length of the cardstock at 5 1/2, then folded (so at this point the card should be 5 1/2 by 5 1/2). Then on just the top portion of the card I scored it at 2 1/4 (this made the stand up portion). The beautiful girl is "Fancy"a digital stamp from Saturated Canary. I colored her with Spectrum Noir markers. I used Sizzix dies for the swirls, and the background shapes. I used some embossing folders to emboss the shapes, I made flowers out of pink, lavender, and Stampin Up coastal cabana cardstock. The larger flowers are the Die-namics Hybrid Camellia flower dies from My Favorite Things, the corners dies are the Die-namics Four Corners dies, and the small flowers are the Rolled Flower dies from My Creative Time and the banner is the Stitched Party Dies from My Creative Time as well. The sentiment came from the Celebrate Big stamps set from My Favorite Things. (The word mommy was just handwritten by me with a lavender sharp tipped marker). Lastly I blinged it out with the Stampin Up clear rhinestones and Studio G lavender rhinestones.
This is the ink pad holder I made using foam board. It cost me less than $5 to make this ink pad storage and I so much foam board left that I will be making marker storage. I purchased the foam board at Walmart as I found it was the least expensive price for the size. The size I got was about 4 feet by 4 feet (because some pieces were a little bigger than others), they were 1/4 inch thick at least and the cost was under $1 per piece. There are only a couple areas that needed to be secured which you could use a hot glue gun, liquid craft glue, contact paper or even tape.

This is one of the sympathy cards I made. To make this card I acutally used some left over paper I had. For the butterflies I used the Die-namics MPD Fancy Butterflies from My Favorite Things as well as used the Clearly Sentimental About Sympathy clear stamp set from My Favorite Things.
