Time for some yummy Easter Eggs

Hi folks! It's challenge #32 over on Dare U 2 Digi Stamp and this time we would like you to use pearls. I've used my melt dust (Silver pearl) and melt dust vellum for the first time to create the lovely embossed digi image and I'm really pleased with the results.

I used my Gypsy and Cricut to create the card blank from DCVW luxury cardstock. I dry embossed a panel of pink pearl card and glittered the edges. My 'Egg Cake Stand' (newly released and available here) as mentioned above, was printed onto Meltdust Vellum, I then sprinkled silver pearl Meltdust powder and heat embossed it. I coloured the eggs from the back with Copic markers and painted the stand and bows on the front with liquid pearls. I attached the vellum to some white cardstock with eyelets and topped them with pink pearls. Again I glittered around the edges. I created a swirl using pearls and added a pink feather and a small ribbon bow for a finishing touch.
Ciao for now!

I love the Easter egg cake stand. The colors used on this card are lovely and so suitable for Easter and Spring.

Another stunner. The eggs themselves are soft and beautiful.

A cricut and a gypsy? Lucky you. I would love to be able to create shaped cards like that it really sets the whole design off.

Mariska said...

Oh wow sweetie this is sooooooo gorgeous!! I've been scrolling down and was just totally flabbergasted with all the gorgeous cards you've been doing lately. I'm sorry for not stopping by more often but with the pregnancy in the final stage I'm glad to get the things done I need to get done during the day :). I was trying to find your e-mail address because I wanted to send you a birth announcement when the time comes and I've lost the SS-addresslist. I don't see your e-mail anywhere on your site though so perhaps you can contact me with your address? You can find my e-mail on my profile on my blog! Hope to hear from you!!!

Hi Sandra - I missed a load of your cards while I was on holiday - and oh my goodness what a fabulous collection of goodies.
Those latests samples you did for Joanna just take stamping to a whole new level - they are amazing.
