Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop: Easter

Welcome to the March Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop! Whether you came here from Karen's blog or just got started with my blog, I hope you enjoy what I have made for an Easter card, which by the way is our theme for this month. My name is Jan Musselman and I am an independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator. The Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop is a group of demonstrators from all over the world who get together once a month to bring you some inspiration with our contributions to the hop. This month marks the end of our Sale-a-Bration promotion. There is only a couple of weeks left. So I decided to create a Lasting Lily Easter card. Just a little bit different, I know, but I think it turned out quite well. So I have also included the Lily Framelits, Part of our Sale-A-Bration (SAB) Coordination promotion. I don't know about you but I would always rather have a coordinating set of dies to do my cutting for me.

I started with the SAB Lasting Lily Stamp Set. I stamped my Lillies with Daffodil Delight. I stamped the leaves and stems with Pear Pizzazz. I adhered them together with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I then created my sentiment banner by cutting some So Saffron Cardstock with the second smallest narrow Rectangle Stitched Framelits. I cut the right end with the Tailored Tag Punch ( I love that this punch can double as a Fishtailed Tag punch). I stamped the Easter Blessings from the Itty Bitty Greetings with Old Olive Ink. Then I cut it apart. Next used a die from the Well Written Framelits to cut "wishes" from Old Olive Cardstock. I adhered the Easter & the Wishes to the Sentiment banner. My Card Front was Dry Embossed with the Subtle DTIEF (Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder). Then using the largest narrow Rectangle Stitched Framelit, I cut the window. I added Adhesive Strips around the outside edge of the Card Front and around the window opening. I tucked in my Lilies on the right side, they stuck to the Adhesive strips right nicely. Adhered the Sentiment Banner to the Card Front with Liquid Glue & topped it off with a few Iridescent Sequins. I used some Grapefruit Grove Foil to mat my Card Front with. The card Base is Grapefruit Grove as well. The Inside layer has a sentiment from the Hold Onto Hope stamp set.
