Easter Eggs

I hope my card uploads at the correct time. I have posted ahead. Most times it posts when it should but you never know. I am hurriedly typing my post so I hope it will be correct.

My card is for the Crazy4Challenges, C4C231 challenge-Easter. We are supposed to make a card or projects with eggs. It can be simple, elaborate, fun, funky, or elegant. You can see my eggs in the grass under the tulips.

I thought I would do a pop-up card today. It is made with the Sizzix Bigz Die, Scallop Circle 3D pop-up.

Easter Tulips with Burlap

Easter is getting closer. In my area, the dogwoods, tulips, daffodils and cherry trees are blooming. What a beautiful sight after such a terrible winter.

I don't have a lot of time recently for anything but CAS cards but when I get the chance, I play in  the Mixed Media challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Mix62 was to use tulips with at least 3 kinds of medium-acrylic, Gesso, ink, etc.  Last week I was able to combine it with the Free for All challenge-tone on tone.  I used white on white, layer to base.

I painted my tulips using Americana Acrylic paint in Napa Red and used Gesso.  The burlap stencil is done with the same paint in Camel.  The stems are done with Hauser med. green and lt. green acrylic paint.

Embossed Tulips

Hoping your Monday weather is better than mine. Lots of rain and turned cool again. Yuck!

It time for the CAS267 challenge on Splitcoaststampers and we are doing dry embossing this week with any theme. If you don't have an embossing folder you want to use, you can use scoring on your card instead.

My sister gave me this gorgeous embossing folder. I LOVE tulips and what is better to use for Spring than this?

Embossing is quick and easy and you have a card made in a short time.
