Hello stampers and happy Friday to you. On this Good Friday I have a Happy Easter card for you. I used the retiring stamp set To A Wild Rose as well as the Word Wishes dies. This card was built around the word “blessed” from To A Wild Rose. Both the font and the size of this word and the other sentiments in this set are really nice and versatile.
Here in southern Ontario we are heading into another lockdown situation so that is unfortunate. Thankfully the weather is getting nicer which makes it really lovely to be outside. Spring flowers and green grass give renewed hope. Of course, Good Friday and Easter Sunday give the most hope of all. I cannot imagine my life without knowing Jesus as my Saviour and Lord. That is why I made this card to share with you today! I hope you like it.
If you want to see another lovely To A Wild Rose card that I made last year, then check out this blog post for another great technique and pretty colour combination. Here is one more blog post featuring To A Wild Rose. This makes me quite happy because I was feeling a bit guilty that I hadn’t used this stamp set enough!
My Blessed Easter card is a z-fold card made with a base of thick basic white 4 1/4″ by 11″ scored at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″. The front panel was run through the die cutting machine with the Painted Textures embossing folder. It measures 4 1/8″ by 5 3/8″. All my flowers were stamped in daffodil delight and the leaves are pear pizzazz. All dies used except for the word Easter are from the To A Wild Rose bundle. “Easter” comes from the Word Wishes dies. I have another blog post that also uses the Word Wishes dies. Check it out here.
Guided Tour of Retiring Items
I made a video showing the retiring items from the annual and mini catalogs. You can see it here but you would be wise to skip through the first two minutes as I have some technical issues with sound.
The benefit from watching this video is that I share my favourite things that I would not want my stamp room to be without. As much as I use the annual catalog throughout the year, I am amazed at how much I overlook until the Last Chance list is announced.
Thanks so much for joining me today and a special thank you for supporting me throughout the last week as I battled technological challenges. Several times I was live on either YouTube or Facebook either not knowing it or doing it very wrong!! Your support and encouragement is heartwarming. What a wonderful stamping community I have. Wishing you a wonderful Easter weekend, I hope you get to see some family and friends but above all that you feel the love of Jesus.
