Wishing You a Joyful Christmas - April Rudolph Days

Hi, Friends......

Quick post here to get my April Rudolph Days card entered over at Scrappy Mo's. I am getting into the spirit of "using what I already have" and making tons of cards with old stash. It's so fun! I actually used up a small pack of embellishments on some of my other Yay!!

For this card I used some fun stickers that have been in my Christmas box for ages and an old Winnie & Walter printable freebie tag (so sad that company closed down). I added texture with a black burlap piece and a snowflake brad. Super simple design, but I like how it turned out.

Supplies used include:
Basic Grey - Eskimo Kisses Epoxy Stickers
Recollections Stickers from stash
Winnie & Walter printable tag from Daily Grind Collection Vol. 1 - Holiday Mint (retired)
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set (retired)
DCWV patterned paper and burlap paper
Creative Impressions - Pewter Snowflake Brads - retired

Thank you for stopping by today! I appreciate your time and kind comments. Hope you are all doing well and staying healthy.

Easter Blessings

Hi, Friends.....

Sorry for the long silences between blog posts. A close relative asked me if I had given up on making cards. I guess maybe I didn't get a Valentine or Easter card sent to her....and so she thought I had quit cardmaking altogether!! Whaaaa---aaat????? HORRORS!! What would I do with all these zillions of supplies in my craftroom if I quit????? lol...
(Incidentally, I have given my hubby and son instructions on what to do with it all if I suddenly drop dead. :o Of course, whether or not they will remember is a different question!! lol...)

Well, I have NOT stopped making cards, but I have been rather negligent at getting things blogged. Before April gets away from me completely, I thought I better blog this Easter card I made from a lovely new die I won recently from Kat Scrappiness. (THANKS, Kat!!!)

I stenciled over a previously made leftover Easter egg dye background. I layered the diecut for a gentle shadow effect. I used scraps for the sentiment panel and the diecut shadow.

Supplies used include:
Kat Scrappiness - Faberge Egg with Cross die
Easter Blessings sentiment from dollar rack
Versamark ink
WOW! Embossing Powder - Opaque Bright White Regular
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Canson - Mixed Media Paper
Winnie & Walter - Scenery: Multi-Faceted Creative Screenings (retired)
Distress inks
DCWV and Core'dinations scraps

That's all for right now. I will be back later with a Rudolph Days card. Thank you for stopping by. I hope you liked my card.
