Masked Easter Cards x 2

Hey Stampers,

As promised, I am showing you another cute Easter project today !! Actually, today I am showing you two - both using the same layout and color combo !! I think its so cool to see how different the "same" card can look when you use different stamp sets !! The color combo I used today just screams Spring and Easter to me - Regal Rose, Pool Party, Daffodil Delight and Lucky Limeade. Very soft and beautiful. Take a look !!

Isn't that just lovely ?!? And its is only a one layer card ! My Whisper White piece of cardstock measures 4" x 5-1/4", and I reserved 1-1/4" in the middle for my sentiment, and then used a 4"x6" Post-it Note for my masking. Masking is when you cover up an area and then stamp - when you peel off your mask you have clean paper underneath ! Great for creating the illusion of layers. I colored the beautiful Rose image from the Oh, Hello stamp set with my markers, and just stamped away. After I pulled off my sticky note, I used my Simply Scored tool to create those embossed lines. Very easy and classy ! My sentiment comes from the Delightful Dozen stamp set, and I stamped it in Regal Rose. A couple of sweet butterflies in Daffodil Delight and Pool PArty from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set were then stamped and punched out using the Bitty Butterfly Punch. Then my stamped layer was adhered to a Regal Rose card base. very easy ! And I love the simplicity of this card.

And here is card #2 !! See how different it looks !?!? This one seems so funky and modern to me ... Just with changing up the stamps !! The Betsy's Blossoms stamp set paired with the Wacky Wishes Hostess set and a different butterfly image really creates a totally different style !! This card would be great for kids or anyone young at heart. Also, the butterfly stamp I used here is actually the bigger image which is supposed to match the Elegant Butterfly punch, but the Bitty Bitterly fits inside it perfectly as well !! Yay !! Love that.

Well, those are my Easter cards for today !! I hope you liked them. I still have a few more Easter things to squeeze in this week, so come back soon !! Thanks a lot for stopping by and Happy Stamping !!
