Happy Easter...

Happy Good Friday!

I know its not traditional Easter colours but I have something very spring like and Easter tomorrow and sunday!

This is a combination of the Gerbera Lattice die cut in white against a background of Izink pigment inked watercolour card.  I used the background for the centres of the flowers using the Press Cut circles Card candy die.

I stamped the flowers using the gerbera daisy stamp and cut them out with the matching stamps.

I stamped the sentiment included with the Gerbera Daisy stamp set onto aqua card and cut it out using the with love tag die set.

I made up the card using layers of black and aqua as shown...

  17. Hi John
    Great card, I love the colour.
    Have made lovely flowers with your die but am now thinking I really need the stamps too.

  18. I am enjoying your dies and stamps. I made a set of cards for a friend's birthday and she loved them. Thank you for the inspiration. I used the acetate "smushing" technique you showed on Hochanda.
    Have a wonderful weekend,
