Happy Easter Sunday to you!


I do hope youre having a relaxing Easter Sunday and not gobbling all your chocolate eggs down too quickly like my youngest did – she is a little over the chocolate right now! I’ve only had one piece and already my head is starting to hurt!

I have seen so many gorgeous cards made with Pocket Silhouettes so when I saw it was in our new Idea Book & Catalogue I just had to have it – and its a bargain at just $33.95 for 6 stamps!

stemsilcareHere is a card that I’ve had on my desk in various stages over the past week.

I dont normally do Emboss Resist and I’ve seen a few doing this technique lately so thought I’d have a go too!

I’ve sponged the background in Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze after stamping and embossing the silhouettes. The Background on the Pacific Point card is the Friendly Words jumbo wheel which makes an awesome background. The sentiment is from the Level 1 Hostess set Best Yet which is reason enough to hold a demonstration! It has six great sayings in it which I’m sure you will see here throughout the next 12 months!

When I had finished the card it looked a bit bare in the top left corner so I went looking for a butterfly to use and can you believe I dont have one set with a nice little butterfly in it so I’m just going to have to remedy that!

stemsilcarebflyI have Priceless which has a whimsical larger butterfly but that wouldnt have suited this card so I grabbed my retired Live your Dream set and just used that butterfly until I work out which set with a little butterfly I should get!

I stamped the butterfly once on Pink Pirouette and once on Baja Breeze cut them out with my awesome paper snips and mounted them on with the thin edging from the wonderful Stampin Dimensionals so it gives the impression they are in flight.

Here’s a close up of the butterflies so you can see what I mean.

Hope you do have a lovely (and safe) Easter weekend and make some lovely memories with family and friends!

    1. very funny Miss Steph! Actually she got heaps … and she hadnt even got half way thru them before she reached the chocolate overload level! So hopefully they will last a few days instead of just the one!
