Hopping Around the World - Easter

Happy Leap Day stamping friends! How are you taking advantage of this extra day? I'm doing laundry, some cleaning and stamping. And I may be binge listening to some shows I've missed over the last few weeks. *smiles* Today's blog hop is highlighting the Easter holiday. We celebrate it by inviting our local family over the day before for brunch and an Easter egg hunt. Last year we filled and hid 250 250 filled eggs! It's a job, but Jack and his cousins love it! 

I decided to die cut a cross from the Cross of Hope Framelits and laid it on a piece of Whisper White card stock. I then inked the cluster of bold flowers from the Beautiful Bouquet set and stamped around and over it with Daffodil Delight. I repeated again with Pumpkin Pie and Poppy Parade inks layering them on top of one another. I then took the cross off and this was the result. Just lovely! I then sponged Granny Apple and Garden Green for the grass to help 'anchor' the cross and backed it with a piece of Basic Black card stock stock. I used a die from the Sale-A-Bration set, Lily Pad Dies to give the Whisper White card base a little dimension. The saying is from the Rustic Retreat set and I used the Everyday Label punch to punch it out. I wanted my card to be a simple reminder of this wonderful holiday! I hope you will continue to hop along to see what Easter inspiration Mo Rootes has for you from across the pond. Happy Stamping!

  1. That is a great idea - using the flowers to create a negative image for the cross. He is risen - He is risen indeed!
