He Is Risen!

I'm sorry to be so late in blogging about this, but maybe I was saving the "best for last"? lol The shoulder I had fixed three times has been a bit achy, and I haven't been on the computer for a few days.   A lot's been happening around here - too much to mention!   Here is a card I had so much enjoyment in making.

 Chocolate Baroque has outdone themselves with the Lace Fragments and Easter Traditions stamp sets! They are "must-haves"!!! I thoroughly enjoyed using these stamps, and the detail is extremely fine and delicate - just like the real thing! The complete directions follow the photos.


A closeup of the dimension the elements have in this card, and the detail of the roses.

This shows the intricate detail of this fan lace stamp. It looks so realistic!


He Is Risen

Supplies –

Chocolate Baroque stamp sets
         Artistic Expressions – “Joy”
         Lace Fragments
         Easter Traditions – small cross,“He is risen”
       
Embossing folder
White cardstock, cut to 5” x 11”
Gray cardstock, scrap for cross
Purple inkpad, I used Stampin’ Ups Baroque Burgundy
Gray inkpad, I used Stampin’ Ups Going Gray
Scoring board
Small & medium white pearls
3 – ¾” purple roses from stash
Diecut leaves from a friend, unknown die
5” white gimp trim, with ends sealed with glue
Dimensionals
Scissors
Spellbinders Cross Collection dies
Diecutter (I used a Cuttlebug)
EK Success “Daisy Scallop” edge punch
Copic marker BV08 Blue Violet

Directions –

Score and fold the white cardstock piece, at the 5 ½” mark lengthwise. Position the embossing folder at the center of one side of the cardstock, towards the fold; run through die cutter to emboss. On a scrap piece of 3 ½” white cardstock, stamp the 1” wide lace that looks like fans, from the Lace Fragments set. Use the gray inkpad. On the front of the card base, below the embossed emblem, about 1 1/4” above the opening edge, stamp using this same stamp and inkpad, across the 5” width, with the straight side of the “lace” on the bottom (fans up). At the top of the card, above the embossing, stamp the open lace in gray. Across the bottom front of the card base, below the stamped lace strip, use the border punch to create the flower pattern. Adhere the white gimp onto the card base between the stamped lace image and the punched border. Use the purple inkpad and the word “joy” from the Artistic Expressions set, and stamp it in the top left corner of the embossed image in square. Use dimensionals to adhere the 3 ½” long piece of “fan lace” parallel to the same on the bottom, about ½ way up card. Trace around the cross die from the Spellbinders die set, Cross Collection, on the gray cardstock and cut out with scissors. Sponge edges with gray ink. Use a piece of white scrap paper, and die cut a cross using this same die. Use dimensional to adhere the white cross centered in the gray cross. On white scrap paper, stamp in purple, the small cross stamp from the Chocolate Baroque set, Easter Traditions. Fussy cut cross out with scissors. Use dimensional to attached this cross in the center of the white cross. Double-up the dimensional on the back of the gray cross and position in the top right corner of the card, with part of the cross’ circle over the end of the stamped lace strip. Use the Copic marker BV08 Blue Violet to color five of the medium-sized pearls. Place on the ends of each cross beam, and in the center of the small cross. Using the smaller pearls, place one in each cross section of the stamped lace on top and bottom, across the bottom of the fan with “He is risen” across it, and the punched border.

  1. Your combination of colours in this project are just exquisite & your way with pearls makes me think of the "pearl of great price". This is so beatufiul ti almost hurts. Take care with all you have going on & hope that shoulder improves.
