Easter Flowers

I have been dreaming about spring the last few weeks so despite the snowy and cold weather outside, I'm making my craft room feel like spring. I have these cards on my wall to keep me inspired. I really like this Easter stamp, the outline is very pretty if you want to make a simple sketch card,  but you can also color it for a change. 

I made the card using the Ovals Collection framelits for the Big Shot. I scored my card (5-1/2 by 4-1/4) and then used the big shot to cut out the base. I used the other circles for the layers including a white layer inside. I colored the flowers using my Copic  markers. DID YOU KNOW... Stampin' Up! is coming out with alcohol based makers soon so you can blend just like Copics!




More Painters Tape

I'm still really enjoying the painters tape technique and I found a card like this on Pintrest. I could not find the original creator but I definitely case'd it from somewhere.

Marker Stripes

This years Sale-A-Bration brochure has a great card example using markers for the background so I recreated my own version of the card. This is such an easy way to make a unique background using the colors of your choice. You can see I made several versions playing around with color combinations and sentiments. Which is your favorite?  If you don't like the uneven look for freehand lines, you can always use a ruler to keep the lines straight.
