Easter Sets

This week for our Inspired Stamps Design Team work we were asked to create a set of Easter cards.  To me Easter is pastel colors and flowers with the promise of Spring.  I now had my colors but next I needed the design.  I have been in a creative rut lately, so off to Pinterest I went to find my inspiration.  This helped and I created the above card set.  I used the big flower from the Flowers stamp set amd the Label Maker Alphabet Stamp set. 

I first cut my squares and placed glued them to a 3x3 square, then I stamped my flowers in Versa Mark ink and Heat embossed them with White embossing powder.  You can't tell from the picture but they are placed on a piece of white cardstock that is embossed using my cuttlebug.

Materials Used:  Inspired Stamps Flowers and Label Maker Alphabet
CTMH:  White Daisy, Baby Pink, Heavenly Blue, Kiwi, Sunkiss Cardstock, Black Ink
Other: Versa Mark Ink, White embossing powder.

For those that are wondering I have been fighting the flu, upper respiratory infections and bronchitis at my house.  I had the flu, and bronchitis over New Year's along with my son Jimmy, then once we both started feeling better we both developed bronchitis and colds.  I have been coughing all year, and am praying it get better soon.  My papercrafting (and house) is suffering.  Not to mention that my creative juices are almost non-existent.  Well It is off to bed now the Nyquil I took is kicking in and I am falling asleep at my computer.
