Friends of True's Inky Blog Hop

The sweet and talented Trudy Sjolander has a new stamp release available through Inky Antics! How fun to get to help her celebrate, along with this fabulous group of designers!


If you just happened on the blog hop today because you're a regular reader of my blog, and you'd like to view the entire hop, you can start back at Trudy's blog - you'll find a full list of participants there, and all the details you need. If you're already hopping and you arrived here from my friend Bev's blog, you're doing just fine.



I went with a clean and simple layout and design on this card, because I wanted the images of the Swirly Easter set to take center stage. I colored the images with Touch Twin Markers - the colors I used are below. I created a window with a small Sizzix die - Love the wide border on these for window cards! I ran the die and a Fiskars embossing plate through my Big Shot at the same time with the embossing plates before cutting the window out.





Here's a peek at the full set:


There will be a prize package donated by Inky Antics that includes True's entire, newly released, Swirly Spring stamp line, so be sure to leave comments all along the way for a chance to win! One lucky commenter from a randomly picked blog will win all 6 stamp sets! The winner will be announced on True's Blog on Monday, March 11th.

Your next stop on the hop is Colleen Schaan's blog! Thank you so much for visiting me!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love how you make your CAS cards look so beautiful my friend!
    The way you cut the flowers out and used them at the base of the cross is so cool! I wouldn't have thought to do that but will be CASE-ing you now! :)

    Thanks so much for playing along!

    Hugs,
    True :D

  22. Hmmm...never thought to use a die with an embossing plate but I don't think I would use one with an embossing folder. Also love the flowers at the foot of the cross. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous creation using this stamp set.
