Fresh Bloom Release | Easter Cards | Simon Says Stamp


Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I have a couple of Spring/Easter inspired cards to share with you featuring the Filigree Egg Die that Simon Says Stamp sent me to create with for the Fresh Bloom Release

Just look at all the details on this die... It is so beautiful that I just had to create an entire background using it😍

CARD DETAILS

To create this card I began by die-cutting the egg in the center and then used it to die to cut along the edge of the panel. Next, I die cut a template of the egg and used it to color the openings onto another piece of white cardstock.  To ensure that I was properly lined up I would use the top die-cut layer to line up the template underneath it with the openings then I would remove the top layer and color through the openings of the template onto the bottom piece of paper using Copic markers. Once all the openings were colored in I added a layer of glimmer paste to the colored panel. Once the paste was dry I glued the top die-cut layer on to it and trimmed off the edges.

The sentiment I used here comes from the Sketch Ranunculus set that I stamped and heat embossed in Gold onto a strip of vellum that I wrapped around the card front.  I then finished off this card by embellishing the centers of the flowers with some sparkling crystals.

This next card was much simpler to make. Again I started off by die cutting the center egg and then used the largest frame of the Stitched Rectangle Die set to cut the panel. I then did some ink blending with distress oxide inks onto the card base just below where the egg would peak through. I used Broken China, Picked Raspberry and Squeezed Lemon. And once again I added a thin layer of glimmer paste to the colored area and set it aside to dry.

Once the paste was dry I glued the top panel onto the card base. The Easter sentiment I used comes from here that I heat embossed in silver and die cut using one of the angular Nested Banners.

To finish off this simple card by added a pink bow to the top of the egg and used a variety of clear colored crystals to embellish the egg front →Yellow, Pink, Blue

WOW Ilda, these are gorgeous! My fave is the first one but I have to say, I ♥ ALL of the Filigree dies! (There is SO much in this release that I want but the Filigree dies are definitely in the running for my top picks!)
