ASM - Holiday ....

... Good evening!!  So it's officially spring now, while we have blue skies and bright sunshine, the temperature still hasn't improved much, we're still below 0°C!!  However, it is time for our new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!  This week it's our Holiday theme - Christmas, New Year, Halloween, Easter, National Holidays - anything, so long as it is a holiday.  Here's my card:

Stamps: Winnie & Walter - The Big, The Bold & The Happy; Waltzingmouse - Nestie Eggs
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Rich Razzleberry, Soft Sky; Memento - Lulu Lavender
Dies: Spellbinders - Nested Eggs (S4-264) #2 & 3; Die-namics - Highrise Alphabet Uppercase
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Vellum, SU Card - Soft Sky; Copics; Sequins


I need a few more Easter cards for this year, so this time the holiday was easy!  Easter.  I used the colours from this week's Dynamic Duos - DD#95, but had to adapt them a bit for the vellum as I didn't have any that matched exactly and the pastels that I do have were too pale to show.  I've been taking the online class Clean & Simple 3: One Layer Cards.  I've used the Copic colouring on vellum a technique that was demonstrated last week.  It is very easy to do and makes a very dramatic card.  I added a few die cut Easter eggs to the front and some sequins.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of pale blue, stamped a few more Easter eggs and a simple greeting.

For more inspiration with the Holiday theme, check out the cards from the rest of the team and from our Guest Designer, Anni.  Our sponsor this week is STAMPlorations and the winner will be getting a prize from them. 

That's all for now - I can't wait to see your holiday themed projects.  See you soon!
