So, are you ready for what I came up with? Well I actually have 2 cards to share with you. The second I just had to upload as well, because when I think Easter and Resurrection, I also think pretty bright fun dresses for my 2 girls ;D;D. Somewhat what this card is bright and fun!! But let me show # 1 first.

He has risen.........


Paper:PTI White, Memory Box Frond, Bazzill textured shade of green

Stamps: ODBD Happy Easter

Ink: VersaMark, white embossing powder, Chalk Box Bisque, Watercolor Pencils and my trusty Blender Pen

Accessories: green satin ribbon, Daffodil colored Dew Drops, Tim Holtz distressing tool

You might see it in this photo..the daffodil is layered. I have another side view photo of it...have a look and see. I know this is a pretty simple card, but this is exactly what I was trying to achieve here. Make a CAS card. God does not care if we make elegant and elaborate cards or clean and simple card...there are many ways of glorifying him ;D;D.

Side view of above card!!

All right, on to my second card! This one is very different. A little, yep, a little more work went into this one, but the reason for that is, that I wanted it to look like one of those fun Easter dresses with all kinds of bling and flowers I was going to buy for my girls



Paper:PTI Vintage Cream, K&Company Wild Raspberry, DCWV Mariposa cs pad, SU Certainly Celery

Stamp: ODBD Happy Easter

Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black

Accessories: Nesties Labels 9, ZVA Creative Rhinestone flourishes , MayaRoad crystal stick pin with a green oblong glass bead and silver/white mini glass beads, Prima Spring Petal Mix flowers, Spellbinder Cross dies, moss colored sheer ribbon, 3D foam dots, 3D glue dots, Sizzix Damask embossing folder, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Pearl (used on the cross)

Well, this is it for me for right now. I hope that I was able to inspire you a little, but if this is not enough inspiration for ya, check out what my teammates have created. I am still at awe...







Thanks for stopping by today my friends. I am looking forward to hear what you think about my two Easter creations.

Have a fabulous weekend.

Hugs and blessings,

These are beautiful. I love the distressing you did on the first one.. It is perfect for this type of card.. The second one is wonderful.. I miss those days of buying Easter dresses. I remember one year I made the girls all matching dresses.. Those were fun days. Great job.

Charlene said...

Sabrina...I was in awe at the first card and then I saw the second one and my jaw just dropped on the floor! How absolutely stunningly beautiful! Wow!

Mary said...

Wowzer Sabrina, I just looked at your blog and it seems that I am not getting your posts via your updates. There must be at least 5 new cards since I've last been to your blog. Gosh your cards just get more beuatiful if that is possible. The amount of detail you put into each one is just fantastic.
