Easter Lilies

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you have had a good week. Well the weekend is here now. We are going interview clothes shopping with our daughter as she has some interviews coming up. It will lovely to spend some time together. Don't forget about the clocks going forward an hour tonight.

This is my Design Team card for the Fantasy Stampers Challenge Blog this time the theme is Easter.

I started by cutting the aperture in the top mat of some stamping card, with a Sizzix thinlet die . Then I stamped the lilies from the Easter Lilies set by Heartfelt Creations in black archival and heat embossed them with a clear sparkly embossing powder.

I coloured the lilies with Promarkers.

I stamped the crosses from the same set  of stamps  as the lilies onto the piece of card that was cut from the original mat. I made a few  masks so that I could  ink round the crosses with Distress ink. The mat with the lilies on was  put on to some mounting foam so it was slightly raised. This meant that  the crosses could be sunk  into the aperture.  The black frame  was made using  two of the Sizzix thinlet dies from the same set I used to make the aperture.  

Happy Easter was stamped with a Clarity Stamp with CS Perfect Medium and heat embossed with a gold embossing powder. 

I have only recently started using Heartfelt Creations stamps I must say I am very impressed with the quality. I hope you have a great weekend. 

Happy Crafting 

Hugs Jackie
