Here's the rest of the easter inspired cards we'll be making this Friday 10am-12pm and Saturday, 4pm-6pm
this image is probably my most favorite easter stamp. it's by memory box. it's an oversized tree, but i just stamped part of it and i colored in the eggs with pastel colors of copics and for the finishing touch, i used glossy accents on the eggs and outlined the cardstock in diamond glitter.
This next card i stamped some fun new blossoms by memory box in the background and stamped the cupcake by impression obsession and blinged it up!
this next card is fun, i used new flower soft colors for the carrot car and some new fun flowers by impress. the stamps are by impression obsession and american art stamps. i think the martha grass edger is a definite punch to get.. i have been using it on several cards, but this edger is also great for halloween.. you can punch it out in black!!!
please call the store at 916 487 2737 if you are interested in this class!
