Spring Tulips Easter Card

Hello and Happy Monday!  It is sunny and a little warmer here.  I just took a nice, long walk.  I have a springy card to share today using some older stamps that have been favorites of mine.


I stamped the background stamp using three colors of ink.  I added the tulips in black right over top and then trimmed it out.

On the inside of the card, I used the same three colors of ink to stamp the eggs. I thought the polka dots there mimicked the dots in the berries on the card front.


Supplies:  Hero Art Newspaper Tulips, Berry Background Stamp, Clear Design April Stamp set, Hero Arts shadow inks in Green Hills, Mint Julep and Tide Pool, Versafine Onyx Black ink, My Mind’s Eye enamel dots, background die cut was a gifted item, Gina K Designs Jelly Bean green cardstock.

I would love to play along with A Blog Named Hero’s Use Your Favorite Hero Arts items, and SimonSaysStamp’s Wednesday Challenge which is Easter Inspired!  Also, I would like to play with Card In Envy’s No Patterned Paper challenge!  Thanks for running this challenges to help inspire us to use our stamps and paper!

Thank you for your visit today!  I hope you will leave a comment with your blog information in it so that I can come visit you too! 

You can find me on facebook or pinterest, too.

Darling card Heidi. I thought to myself, I have that Lil Inker coverplate die too...and then I remembered I might have sent you a panel. I love the composition of your card and the interior dotted eggs. So darling.
