Stampavie Challenge - Easter

Hello! Today is the Stampavie Challenge! And the challenge today is to make an Easter Card. With so many wonderful Spring images from Stampavie this is a pretty easy one!

For me I decided to use the new Helz Cuppleditch image Easter Scenery - a wonderful image!

I colored with my Copics, then pulled out my air compressor and sprayed the background. I love how it came out! I was going for that sunrise look? It kinda worked I think! I cut it out with my oval Nesties and then inked the edges with a light green ink and a sponge. All of my Happy Easter sentiments were... well cutesie looking. Does that make sense? I wanted something small and more "adult" so I had to make due and hand wrote it, and then doodled around the edge while I had the pen in my hand.

For my card I started with a peach card stock for the base, and then found an olive green card stock for the mat. The striped pattern paper is from Webster's pages. A new company for me, but really wonderful paper! Double sided, and great patterns, some really vintage looking, love those. I sewed the papers together with a zig zag stitch, then matted the oval with the same two card stock, and sewed those down. I found a piece of latice ribbon, that seemed perfect - I ran it across the center and then pop dotted my oval down.

So now you need to head on over to the Stampavie DT Blog and see the other Easter cards then join us! We keep the prize a secret... but believe me... you want to give it a go for this!!! Seriously he he he!

Better get to work... I have a LONG day at work today! :0)

Hello All,

I've been trying to figure out a good place to begin with the Acai Berry free trial and was just wondering if anyone had some thoughts on whether or not the stuff works to lose weight? So far here is the only [url=]article[/url] I have been able to check out that seemed realistic for the goals I have. Opinions?
