Easter Wishes

 To All Who Believe
As we all have Faith in our Risen Lord
Our Hope is that he will come to take us to be with Him.

As we celebrate Easter and our risen Savior let us 
look to Him for Peace, Joy and Love 
as we live our lives until He comes.
Easter Blessings to all who believe.

These cards are inspired by the month end challenge at
Heart 2 Heart: Cut it Out. I used the Block Alphabet Thin Cuts
to cut out the words "Faith" and"Hope." The words are then
mounted up over the cut out space for a risen affect.

A Happy Rainbow Hello

Inspired by a Happy Eclipse Card
I was so inspired by Alyson's Eclipse card that I had to try one. I'm sure this technique has been around for a while but I had not heard of it. So, I wanted to give it a try using the rainbow color challenge at Heart 2 Heart. Using my flower stamp from the For You Darling stamp set I stamped each rainbow color in first and then second generation across the card. Then I cut out the letters and popped them up over the cut out space.

Layers of Poppy, Black and White bring this card to life.

Cover Challenge

From Seasonal Expressions
My favorite parts of the front cover of Season Expressions are the
Chelsea Gardens paper pack and the butterflies.
Even though the Chelsea Garden Card making Stamps Thin Cuts are no
longer available the images in the stamp set are easy to hand cut. The
stamp set is well worth owning even without the Thin Cuts. I hand 
cut the butterflies and they look much better than cut with the Thin Cuts.
The wings flutter better when hand cut.
What inspires you on this front cover?

are from the Chelsea Garden collection. the butterflies are colored with
