This week really got away from me, and I didn't get as much crafting done as I'd hoped. I'm looking forward to a relaxing Saturday, though, with just crafting and a good workout at the fitness center on the agenda.
I want to share with you an Easter card I made that was inspired by this week's Crafty Secrets challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. Lori Lynn asked us to use a color blocking technique on our projects. Basically, you take a piece of paper that's smaller than your card front, adhere your main image and your sentiment, cut them out, then use the left over scraps as spaces for additional images or embellishments. Finally, you adhere all of the pieces onto the cardfront with an even amount of space between all of the blocks. This is a really fun technique that would result in different looks and layouts every time you use it.
Here's my card:
Main Image & Sentiment: Crafty Secrets - Easter Creative Scraps
Patterned Paper: 7 Gypsies (fleur de lis); Bo Bunny Press (plaid)
Cardstock: Bazzill (yellow); DCWV (blue)
Ink: Ranger Distress Ink - Antique Linen
Accessories: rubons - Hambly Screen Prints - Doilies; felt rick-rack - Offray; Easter basket charm - A Charming Place
Shannon is on Spring Break this weekend, so yesterday she and I went on a little adventure just the two of us. We went to a local toy store/gardening center, where they have a very elaborate, animated Easter display, then we went to Pat Catan's and did a little craft shopping.
Don't you just love these fun, family traditions?
Hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead!
