Embossed Easter Cross

Embossed Easter Cross


(a blast from the past…)

This CAS card features a stamp called “Easter Cross” by Stampendous.  The image was embossed with gold embossing powder on GKD Ivory card stock. The mat was also embossed in gold (around the edges) before adhering to the back of the front panel. I used a Spellbinders oval die to emboss the frame around the cross.

This card was originally posted in my StampTV gallery May 4, 2014.

Peeking Bunnies Easter Card

Peeking Bunnies Easter Card


(inside: to some Bunny special)

I really liked these dies when I saw them and envisioned the card in my mind that I planned to create with them, and then I had a bit of trouble trying to fit all the actual die cuts on the card front – lol!  Luckily, die cuts are moveable so I played around with the placement until I came up with something that worked.

The textured, purple card stock is called “Elegance” by core’dinations and has glitter on it so adhering the die cuts required glue (and not tape).  You can see how I attached these intricate die cuts HERE.  For this project, I used Art Institute Glitter Designer Glue.

You can see the sparkle a little better here:


I think the “Peeking Bunny Squares” by Frantic Stamper are so cute, and I love the font for “Happy Easter” by Impression Obsession!

The stamps used on this CAS card are “Easter Lily and Crosses Oval” (#234KU), “1 Line Easter Blessings” (#W1029DU), and “Blessed With Gifts” (#970GU) from DRS Designs.  The images were stamped with versamark ink and heat embossed with Gina K Fine Detail Gold embossing powder.  I swiped the edges of my mat panel with versamark and embossed that as well.  Gina K base weight Ivory card stock and Edible Eggplant were also used.

Hoppy Easter Z-Fold Card

Hoppy Easter Z-Fold Card


This z-fold card features stamps from the “Bunny Hop” stamp set by Newton’s Nook Designs.  The images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on water color paper (I love the texture!) and colored with Copic Markers (Y15, YG03, R85, C0, Bv20/R81, and 0).

A Tim Holtz Dusty Concord distress marker and the Tim Holtz marker spritzer tool were used to add the speckles to the two stamped panels.

Recollections Yellow Grey Plaid paper and a piece of the grey from the Recollections Coffee and Cream heavy weight card stock pack were added to the water color paper card base.


The card base was created by scoring an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch panel at the 4 1/4 and 2 1/8 inch marks (in half and one side in half again).  Fold the card base in half, and fold the top half back on the scored line creating a Z.


I created my inside panel the same size as my front panel and lined it up directly under the front panel so it is completely hidden when the card is closed.


Currently, the Mod Squad Challenge is “ready for spring” where we are encouraged to “make a Spring themed card with flowers, bunnies, pastels…anything Spring.”
