Designer Suzanna Lee here today with an Easter project for you.
Using an accordian card die from Elizabeth Craft Designs, I created this fun Easter home decor. Each of the backgrounds is not only a different color but a different cardstock as well. I used some Core Essentials cardstock and some Core Impressions in various designs. See my supply list for more details.
The oval of each panel is cut using white cardstock and individually decorated using more die cut cardstock and some stamps.
Emboss bits and pieces of the panel for added texture like I did here with the tulip. Then shade it with Gelatos for a hint of ombre color and shading. Scor the outer edge of this panel and sand to frame the letters.
Embellish each oval shape and make a quick nest out of some twine like I did below:
Twine – The Twinery
Stamps – Stampendous, October Afternoon
Dies – Memory Box, Avery Elle, Die-namics, Lifestyle Crafts, Elizabeth Craft Designs
Ink – Heidi Swapp, VersaFine
Button – American Crafts
First up just a reminder that our DESIGN TEAM CALL is going on NOW! You don’t want to miss out on this opportunity to be able to create with Core’dinations all day, every day!
We hope you had a GREAT weekend and a fun St. Patrick’s Day! Beleive it or not we got FOUR inches of snow here yesterday! So the kids were home early and we had one last snow day, hopefully, boefore the first day of spring this week!
Speaking of Spring….when I think of Spring, Easter is one of the things that pops into my head.
Designer Shaunte Wadley created this for us today celebrating a classic Easter delicatessen, PEEPS! AND she used hers scraps. TOO CUTE!
Here is how she did it:
