ASM - Holiday ....

....  Hello.  It's time for our new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!  This week our theme is "Addicted to Holidays" and this means that your entry must be related to any Holiday you like.  You can go for Christmas, Easter, Valentine, a National Holiday, or even a holiday destination.  Here's my take on the holiday theme:

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Nestie Eggs, A Good Egg; Stampin' Up! - Wacky Wishes; Deedee's Digi - Pocketpal Kitten
Inks: SU - Rose Red, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pink Pirouette, Baked Brown Sugar
Dies: Spellbinders - Nested Eggs (S4-264) #2, 3 & 6; WMS cut files - A Good Egg
Accessories: White Lustre Card; WMS Digi Papers - Folk Art "Clean"; Doily; SU Card - Pink Pirouette; SU Marker - Rose Red; Vellum; Copics - R81


As you can see, I've gone for Easter as my holiday.  You've seen this little pocket kitten before on cards by my team mates, it's a digital image from our sponsor Deedee's Digis and it really is cute. I used papers from Waltzingmouse Stamps - Folk Art "Clean" - the main paper for the pocket doesn't actually come in pink it's a pretty image in shades of orange and naturals.  I edited the paper in Lightroom and came up with a pink that I really like.  I printed the image three times on the pink paper, cream and orange, cut them out and layered to create the finished image.  I'm submitting this card to Just Us Girls - JUGS#223, this week their technique is to paper piece!

I stamped the large Easter egg on vellum using Versamark, heat embossed with white powder, die cut it and then coloured the back with a copic marker.  I attached the pocket kitten to the egg using dimensional gel.  I stamped and die cut more eggs, mixing colours and patterns.  I finished the front with a simple Easter greeting.  The inside has a mat in pink, more eggs on the white panel and a funky greeting!

I really enjoy being here; you had a busy schedule with visiting family in the UK; going home (USA) and on top of that loads and loads of snow. Good to see another gorgeous card made by you! XX
