Easter blessings

Happy Resurrection Sunday bloggers!!
This is the weekend that we celebrate the death and resurrection of our Lord who gave his earthly life as a payment for our sins. Thank you Lord Jesus.

Matthew 28:6 NIV  "He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. "  It was prophesied that Jesus would rise again and He did just that.

He lives in heaven and is preparing a place for me and all who believe on His holy name. I hope you all are going to be there.

Now for some postings of my cards.

This is one of the many variations of masking that is being done. The frame is an embossing folder called Swirly frame I believe. The oval is merely done by cutting out an oval of a piece of cardstock and placing it over your card. Sponge in colors desired and then stamp on the black image.

This card is made with digital images from Stampin Up. The strip on the left was cut from a page printed out from their disc, also the paper for the butterflies. They are punched using a Martha Stewart large monarch butterfly punch.

The background for this card was a pre-printed square card. I then cut out 2 die cuts using Spellbinders dies for the circles.  The banner is a strip of card stock that I punched at both ends, stamped and folded. The lower banner is from Stampin Up. The name was printed using foam stamps-unknown manufacturer.

Here again are the MS monarch butterflies in 2 sizes and colors. The middle strip is a MS corner punch. The turquoise dots are stick ons.

This is a new technique I just learned this week-the chevron fold. I saw it on Pinterest but don't remember who was the artist. It's done with folding paper strips-very easy but a fun technique. Two cards-same technique just different paper.

At our stamp club this month I needed another birthday card for one of the ladies so made this one up. I knew she liked birds so needed to put one on her tag. The tag can come out of the clear pocket (made using the envelope punch board) to be used for a bookmark (as I knew she liked to read). The bottom of the tag is decorated with a Martha Stewart punch.

Hope you have enjoyed the projects. Have a blessed weekend.
