He Is Risen PP434 and SSC201

March 24, 2019

 It's Sunday and time for new challenges at The Paper Players and Sunday Stamps!  I am excited that I could combine these two challenges this week!  

The beautiful colors at the Sunday Stamps Challenge are so gorgeous for Spring!  Please use a minimum of 3 colors and a neutral of your choice.

The amazing Joanne is our hostess at The Paper Players this week.  She has a fun sketch for us.  We can't wait to see all of your ideas!  

My card is created on a white card base.  I added a piece of Mint Macaroon on the top of the card base.  The center panel was created using distress inks on watercolor paper using the smooshing method.  It has green, lavender and yellow in the watercoloring, but it is hard to see.  I added a strip of yellow and white gingham paper for my rectangle piece.  I cut a piece of Mint Macaroon with a Reverse Confetti die banner for the sentiment.  The cross was stamped in brown using the Stampin' Up stamp set Hold On To Hope.  I also used the matching  Cross of Hope framelits to cut the brown center cross to layer the crosses.  The flowers were stamped using the same set.  I colored the lavender flowers and green vines with Stampin' Up Markers.  They were cut with the same framelits.   The butterfly is from the same set.
