“For I remember it is Easter morn and life and love and peace are all new born.”
~Alice Freeman Palmer
I made a card similar to this recently, and now have made it as a treat bag topper. The gold heat embossed sentiment is from the Suite Sentiments stamp set. The flower is made from the Botanical Builders Dies, with gold accents from the Petals & More Die Set. The “peace” is made with the Christmas Greetings Dies. The gift bag is a Stampin’ Up! product as well. The handles are made by placing two circle dies on the (unfolded) cardstock, so that the fold is in the middle of the dies. Place the top plate of the Big Shot on only half of the dies so that the half below the fold is cut. I tried it on a piece of scrap computer paper before cutting into the cardstock. It’s a fun little added feature!
I hope you have a beautiful week next week. If you are looking for a good book to read during Holy Week (or any week) I highly, highly recommend “Saint on Death Row, the Story of Dominique Green” by Thomas Cahill. It is a short book (142 pages), but life changing. It was assigned reading for the Oblate group I belong to at the Transfiguration Hermitage and it is incredibly powerful, just unforgettable. I hope you’ll be able to read it. See you after Easter! Peace, xo Dawn
“May all our troubles be bubbles.”
Good Morning and I hope everyone had a great week-end. We had a little birthday luncheon for my brother-in-law yesterday and I was finally able to play with the new “Bubble Over” stamp set to make his card. I stamped the bottom part of the bottles twice so it would look like there is liquid in the bottles. The background is made from a very old embossing folder called “Square Lattice.” I have used this folder over and over and it taught me not to wait to get a new embossing folder because once they are gone from the catalog, they are gone! The red band is embossed with the “Softly Falling” Embossing Folder. The little red stars are the new enamel shapes…my first time using them and just love them. They add texture and pop! The inside sentiment is from one of last years stamp sets called “Suite Sentiments.”
“When one has tasted watermelon he knows what the angels eat.”
Good Morning and isn’t this a beautiful color combination to wake up to! Watermelon Wonder and Peek-A-Boo Peach look delicious together (in my humble opinion) : ) and coordinate perfectly with this little frontpiece that I found on the “Free Tools” section of Ann Voskamps website (a christian blogger).
The inside sentiment comes from the new Suite Sentiments stamp set from the Occasions catalog and is a pretty close match to the font on the front! (a small thing but made me smile!) Hope you have a day filled with all the sweetness you can find. xo Dawn
