If for some reason you are unable to leave comment on one or some of the blogs, please do not panic....just let Grace know in your email.



Here are my creations for today's hop:

For today's creation, I decided to make a matching gift set using the Easter Blessings stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs (Released today!) The image is stamped on water color paper, colored with watercolors, and cut out using my Labels 13 die. The sentiment is stamped on vellum and overlays the image. Both panels are pierced. I then used the small die from the Fleur De Lis Die set to frame my image panel. The paper is from K&Co. Tim Coffey. The bottom border is punched with the MS Flower Vine punch.





card recipe:
stamps: Easter Blessings from Our Daily Bread Designs
paper: baja breeze, bitter chocolate, K&Co. Tim Coffey
Accessories: Spellbinders Fleur De Lis, Spellbinders Label 13, MS Flower Vine punch, Zva Creative pearls, Satin ribbon, Vellum, textile embossing folder

The Gift to go box is created using a template from Leigh Ann Baird just release yesterday. Isn't it a fun little container. I always loved the shape and design of the Chinese Take out Boxes and it looks very similar. Again I water colored my image, cut it out, and popped it up on dimensionals in a labels 13 dry embossed die shape.
Gift to go Recipe:
Stamps: Easter Blessings from Our Daily Bread Designs
Paper: Tim Coffey from K&Co. and Bitter Chocolate
Accessories: Labels 13 Spellbinders die, satin ribbon, textile embossing folder from Provocraft
Template: Gift to Go from Leigh Ann Baird at Perfect Presentations


My secret words:


Red

Hi Chris!

You have made such wonderful creations here today. I just love that "box" container. Anyone would be happy to carry that purse. I love the Lily of the Valley...it seems to pop out of the purse! I love the colors of brown and blue together. You must have some incrdible watercolors, for the colors tobe so bold. You are wonderful at doing that! The verse has my word of the year in it..."JOY!" Well, Chris, I always feel more joyful after I look at your blog. Your artistic talents are so incredible to look at and enjoy! I love your beautiful full satin bow and the little details of the pearls.

Thanks for sharing these pieces with us!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
