Easter Daffodils

Greetings!!  With Easter approaching so quickly my thoughts turned to several of the new stamps sets revealed this month with Our Daily Bread Designs.  I decided to use both the Happy Easter set and Easter Blessings set to make a card.  I picked from my favorite Spellbinders™ Scalloped Edge Frame  and also used Spellbinders™ Nested Eggs for the sentiment.  For the eggs, I matted the focal image by flipping the shape. 

Not sure why, but the green color on the card is coming out much darker than the light, cool, minty green it is in real life.   Oh yeah, by the way, Happy Spring!!   Have I mentioned that I have a bad case of spring fever?  Yep, I’ve got it bad . . . today was beautiful outside and I was out in it :-)  Hope you find the time to enjoy to change in seasons and the fresh, fresh air!

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Our Daily Bread Designs – Easter Blessings, Happy Easter
Paper:  The Paper Company, K & Co.
Ink:  Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Tea Dye Distress Ink
Accessories:  Spellbinders™ Scalloped Edge Frame,  Spellbinders™ Nested Eggs,  Ribbon, Pearls

 Be blessed my friends!

ETA:  I’m getting many emails asking me specific questions about the jumbo scalloped punch I used for the Butterfly Card.  It drives me nuts that EK Success doesn’t put the name of the punch on the punch.  I guess I thought you could see it at the EKSuccess website, but it does not appear to be there.  After some research, I found out that the name of the black punch I used is called Embossed Curve and the product number is EK-EKPL8030.    I purchased mine at Michaels.  I hope this helps :-)

    Here’s that scalloped frame again, Becca! It is such a great die!!! Your card is simply divine!

    I’m giving away my Easter basket tomorrow to our friends’ (who bought a winter home nearby) little neighbor girl who adopted all of us (LOL!) when we were getting their house/’yard ready as a surprise before they arrived and now them since they’ve been right next door. She’s 4 and I think she’ll love the basket as much as I do! It’s a combination gift from all 4 of us to her & they’re leaving for home, so we’re having an early Easter get-together with all tomorrow.

    You’re right, it was fun to make, thanks again to you for your fabulous directions!!! Have a lovely Easter.ReplyCancel

    Dear Becca
    Most beautiful card — dont have all the tools that you use to make the frames — so cant get the same wow look but certainly inspires me to be more creative.

    The focal looks so nice in a frame. It is so nice that so many companies are making items that work so well together. I like how you embellished the focal with miniature pearls. It’s a beautiful card Becca. TFS!!! :-DReplyCancel

    So pretty – and so Spring! We had 5 days of warmish temps last week, and then Saturday it dropped to the 30’s. Gotta love Mother Nature – she keeps us humble!

    Thank you for researching the name of the punch. I have my coupons ready to go to Michaels tomorrow – I’m sure I can find a lot of goodies.ReplyCancel
