Have a Blessed Easter!

Happy Easter!  Hope you’re having a wonderful day with friends & family.  Ours won’t be too exciting because the girls are on the mainland & we miss them…but we’ll make the most of it!  Pat & I are blessed to have Mom living next door in our cottage, so we’ll have a nice dinner after church.

Wanted to show you my Easter Card:

Work of Art Easter Egg  Createwithcheryl.me

Here’s a close up of the embossing:

IMG_1911

I had a few leftover cards prepped & here’s what I made:

Create with Cheryl Big News

I thought this turned out cute!  Used the stamp set Big News and Baby’s First Framelits.

Create with Cheryl Happy Birthday

I had fun with this one!  And everyone needs birthday cards!  #imbringingbirthdaysback

Happy Birthday from the hostess set, Happy Birthday, Everyone, is the perfect size!  Then I punched out balloons using Party Punch Pack and some silver thread, bound together with the bow from Square Pillow Box Framelits.

Almost the same…just using scraps I found on my desk.  This flower was from Flower Fair Framelits.

One last card to share.  I received this beautiful card from one of my downline, Louella. Create with Cheryl Louella's card

Isn’t it gorgeous?!  I can see that Wink of Stella on the flowers…pretty!!

May the promise of Easter fill you with renewed faith, hope, & joy.

Have a blessed Easter!

Golden Wedding Anniversary!

Happy 50th Anniversary to a very special couple…Louella & Lew!!  Louella’s one of my favorite people to stamp with!  A very sweet person with a never-ending sense of humor.  Could be one of the reasons she and Lew have been married for 50 years!

IMG_8274Came up with this design by following FMS178:  

I wanted another color besides gold, and Crisp Cantaloupe works well with the gold.  And this is the first time I’ve used Gold Satin Ribbon.  It’s just beautiful and very high quality!IMG_8275

Supplies Used:

  • Paper:  Crisp Cantaloupe & Whisper White CS, Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum, Gold Foil Sheet (5 1/2 X 3 3/4), Gold Glimmer Paper
  • Stamp Sets:  Big News, Regarding Dahlias, Bravo
  • Embellishments:  Gold 5/8″ Satin Ribbon, Circle Framelits #6, Small Heart Punch, Chalk Talk Framelits, Bigz Simple Numbers, Gold Embossing Powder

I’ve been into vellum lately.  It’s something I usually don’t use much, but I really love the results!  Here’s another vellum card I recently made…IMG_8224

This weekend I plan to play with my FREE SALE-A-BRATION VELLUM!!  There’s still time!  Spend $50 & get free SAB product!  Contact me before the end of March to take advantage of this great sale!

 

 

Indescribable Gift on Vellum

The flower image on the Indescribable Gift Stamp Set is so beautiful!!  Perfect for stamping on vellum!

IMG_8224

 

The idea for this beautiful card comes from Becky Cowley.  I stamped the image with Momento Ink and then colored it using Blendabilities.  You could also use your markers or Blender Pen.  I turned the image over to give it a softer look.

IMG_8228Here’s a different look in blue:

IMG_8227In the background, you can see “happily ever after”.  I’ve used Big News and Blessed By God for the sentiments and done some Gorgeous Grunging!
