Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s create a simple yet elegant Easter Card today! Our main image…the beautiful little egg ornament stamp…is from the Ai Hoppy Easter Set (4754). I love looking through my stamp sets and looking for images that can be used in a different way. In this case, by using just this one tiny ornament we can create a stunning card by just repeating this image for a large impact.

We will also stick to that simple black and white theme by creating a textural striped background using some white stencil paste. I’ll give you a few tips and tricks for working with the stencil paste and a more delicate stencil design like the one used here!

When I am trying to keep my design very simple,  I often try to find ways to add texture and interest. In this case, we will add extra layers of cardstock in black, white and a pretty silver metallic along with the stenciling paste!

We will also add some Nuvo Dream Drops….which have a luminescent quality to them….just beautiful! There is just a hint of coloring with a light gray marker.

This card was inspired by the current Ai Blog Challenge – Black Tie Affair! This challenge is to create a simple black and white card…with a little pop of color…if you wish! It sounds easy but it definitely pushes you to use your imagination to give the card texture and interest with this simple color palette. Please join in by creating a card of your own and linking it to our blog or just participate by checking out the fun creations by your crafty peers!
