Heaven Blessed Easter

I love this color combo. Peach Parfait with Pool party reminds me of sherbet and spring. A simple card you can use with any image inside. Peach Parfait basecard with the chick image stamped in versamark to add some interest. Diecut the Large paper doily die.
Let me take a minute here. I read about using packing tape over the dies to minimize getting the chads and I thought " I will ruin it!" but after trying it I am SOLD! The doily just pops off without any of the chads stuck in the die. You DO have to push it out from the die but it's a million times better than the other ways around. I am tempted to wrap my Northern frost sizzlet die which drive me batty everytime I use it in class.
Punch out 2 1/2 inch circle in white and stamp the image of your choice in the center in black- stazon or memento- color in using you watercolor crayons directly on paper then use the aqua painter to blend it and make it soft and smudged. I used Blush Blossom marker to color in the face and arms though. I stamped the modern label surround from the Tea Shoppe in pool party and thne stamped the sentiment in black, punched it out with modern label punch and popped it out with dimensionals. ( I think Stampin Up included this stamp just to make me buy this set....I was vacillating buying, not buying but this tipped it over! ) Tie a bow 3/8 ruffled ribbon in pool party- is it not the most gorgeous ribbon?- and used glue dot to adhere. This was one of my projects last month and not too much grumbling from the crowd....
