Easter Greetings!


Greetings Everyone!

My card today is for this week’s challenge over on the Alota Rubber Stamps blog. This week it is my turn to host the challenge, and as I love using my punches on my cards, I decided to make it a punch challenge.

Let's get Punch Happy ..... get those punches out .... borders, shapes or decorative .... let's have some punch fun when we are creating our cards this week! As long as you use at least one punch on your card this week you are fine ... of course you can use as many punches as you wish ... the more the merrier!

Alota Rubber Stamps are not required, but we would love to see them if you have them!

You have until the 31st January (11.59 pm US Pacific time) to complete this challenge, you can enter as many entries as you wish for a better chance of winning!!! You have a chance of winning some wonderful stamps if you card/project is selected randomly from all the entries received.

Would you like to receive 20% discount when you order from Alota Rubber Stamps .... all you have to do is use the coupon code: FBDTCHAL when you place your order. You can use this coupon code as many times as you like throughout January.

For my card I decided to create an Easter card. To create my card I first stamped “Hidden Surprise” onto white card and airbrushed the sky. I then stamped “Klara Sitting/Flowers” on a scrap of white card and cut her out and attached her to the egg using foam tape. I used just the “Easter Greetings” part of the sentiment to complete the stamped portion of my card.

I used a number of punches for this card, first up the Martha Stewart Daisy Border Punch. I also used circle and scallop circle punches for the sentiment. And finally I used a corner rounder to round the bottom corners of the main image.

The layout of the card uses this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge (Mojo121).
