My Sheri Crafts Guest Designer

Happy Saturday and happy spring!! Yay - spring is finally here!! I'm so excited to be a guest designer at My Sheri Crafts today!! The theme for the challenge #13 is Easter Wishes, featuring either a cross, bunnies or eggs.


For my card, I chose to use a cross. The papers are from Heartfelt Creations. The edges were distressed with a Zutter DIA. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Memory Box Botanical Stems and Chloe Stems were tucked among the blooms. The gorgeous crinkle ribbon is from my sweet friend Karen of Little Scrap Pieces.


A Spellbinders Opulent Oval was used for the base with a La La Land Stitched Elements Oval on top. I hand-cut the cross from heavyweight watercolor paper. It was covered with Wendy Vecchi Black Embossing Paste. Once the paste dried, the cross was covered with Wendy Vecchi Crackle Texture Paste. After the cracks appeared, it was covered with Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Seedless Preserves, Dusty Concord and Shaded Lilac. It was then popped up with foam tape. The banner is from My Craft Spot. The letters for He is Risen were cut from a Die-Versions A Little Mint die set. I added a layer of double-sided tape when I cut the banner and after the letters were added, it was covered with sugar coating for a nice sparkle.


I am entering this in the following challenges:

1) DL.Art - March Linky
2) Scrappin4Fun Challenges - Spring or Easter

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day :)

The leaves in the background of the window are Memory Box Fresh Foliage dies. The eggs are Memory Box Classic Egg dies. They were covered with sugar coating for a pretty sparkle. The grass is a Poppystamps Grassland Border die.

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Happy Monday!! Can you believe March is half over already!! Spring is a mere four days away - yay :) It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog and I have a springy card to share with you today.


This is about as CAS as it gets for me :) I struggled not to add layers and flowers and embellies, but I wanted the new dies from the February 2015 release to be the centerpiece of this card.


The rain drop paper is from Prima's All About Me paper stack. I used the new Whispers Rain Boots - my favorite die from this release - and Whispers Closed Umbrella. I covered them in Glossy Accents for a shiny sheen to make it look like they've been out in the rain. The sentiment is from the Michaels dollar bin. I stamped it and then cut out the words. The edges were inked with Tim Holtz Faded Jeans Distress Ink.


A Whispers Daisy Flair was used along the bottom to represent May Flowers.


I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Throwback Thursday and 4h Blogaversary!!

Happy Friday!! Today is my 4th Blogaversary!! Wow, I can't believe it's been four years since I started blogging. Time sure flies when you are having fun :) Today totally crept up on me and I'm so not prepared. I usually have a giveaway to celebrate and I haven't had time to put anything together. I hope to in the next few weeks so stay tuned :)


Today I'm playing along with Bibiana's Artsy Crafty Throwback Thursday, where the rules are to share a past project. The theme for this challenge is Easter, but it's not mandatory. I chose this vintage Easter basket from last year to share. You can find all the details on this project HERE.
