{Paper Smooches} Easter Blessings


Hello, everyone! First of all, I want to express my delight and gratitude to all of you for hopping along in my Video Hop celebrations last week. Thank you!! Commenting for prizes ended last night and I'll be announcing the winners tomorrow!


Today's Paper Smooches card uses a couple of the newest releases, including the Easter Blessings stamp set and Crosses dies. I created a shroud or altar cloth using silk ribbon. It was adhered to the cross in the centre with a tiny dab of matte multi-medium and then draped over the back of the cross and secured there with Scor-Tape.


The sentiment from Easter Blessings was stamped on the Duo Die 4 frame - a must-have! - and the grassy hill was created with a combination of the Quotables and Stitched dies. As a final embellishment, I die cut, stamped and coloured the dove from A Blessed Christmas and Blessed Icons.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
