SSINKspiration Easter: You're Inspiring

Good morning!  It's spring break this week and the week before Easter so I've working on wrapping up some cards and gifts to get them in the mail in time to be received for Easter.  Today the SSINKspiration designers are sharing cards created to send Easter greetings.  As soon as I saw the You're Inspiring stamp set in this years Occasions catalog I knew I would be using it for Easter along with the new Stampin' Blends.  I've been busy traveling recently and transporting Aidan to all his activities so it was perfect to stamp all the images and then I could color them on the go.

For this card I started with Daffodil Delight cardstock and used the spotted image to stamp all over the left side using Daffodil ink before adding a piece of Old Olive Designer Series Paper from the Color Theory Designer Series Paper along the right side of the cardfront.  Next I took another pattern from the same DSP stack using Daffodil Delight as the rectangle behind the stamped image.

For the stamped image I stamped the large tulip image using Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and then colored it using Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive Stampin' Blends (I did also use the Dark Cherry Cobbler Blend for the center of the flowers and added a little Crumb Cake Blends to the bottom of the flower stems to "dirty" they up).  Once the coloring was complete I used the Big Shot and Layering Ovals Framelits to cut out the image.

The greeting is from the same stamp set and was stamped in Basic Black ink on Pumpkin Pie cardstock and then cut out with the Big Shot and Stitched Shapes Framelits before attaching both oval pieces to the cardfront with dimensionals.  The final touch was to die a double bow using Basic Black Baker's Twine.

These daffodils remind me of the flowers that have just started blooming in my yard and are a sure sign that despite everything we're experiencing spring really will be here soon.  There is still time to finish up your Easter projects so make sure to check out the other design team projects for added inspiration.
