The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge

Hello blogging friends and welcome back to  my blog! 

It's time once again for a new challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters!  Today's theme is ...


My 'sistahs' have created some beautiful creations to inspire you so please be sure to pop over and check them out!  Here's a couple of things I created . . .

Recipe for this card:
Papers:  Pink Bazzill, White, Black cardstock
Stamps:  Penny Black ' flower gallery'
Inks:  Versafine Onyx
Accessories:  Sizzix Swiss Dot EF, Offray ribbon, Spectrum Noir markers, Fiskars swivel craft knife, 

My focus image is from the Crafty Secrets Victorian Floral Easter Egg Style 2 set.  So many beautiful images on this 2 page printable set that you can create until your hearts content!  And with a ticket price of $2.95 ... you can't go wrong!  Be sure to check it out!

After hand cutting the egg I chose from the printed sheet, I ran it through my Vagabond using 2 coordinating size dies from my Spellbinder classic oval set.  Then popped up the inner oval with one layer of dimensional tape and TWO layers of dimensional tape on the center oval.  The corners were created with the Cheery Lynn Designs B165 Lace Corner Deco E die set and the stamp is from Hero Arts.

This final card creation is TOTALLY digital.  The paper and images are all from Crafty Secrets.  The background papers are from the Radiant digital paper collection and the lace, flower & sentiment are from the Creating with Vintage Patterns CD.  So QUICK & EASY!!!  I did print it twice so I could do a bit of fussy cutting and pop up the lace/flower panel at the bottom.  I think it just helps to add another dimension to the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing you again soon!
Until then ...
