Spellbinders HUGE Announcement!!! - Mom & Dad's Easter Card

Good morning! Spellbinders™ has a HUGE Announcement today!! They are having their very first International Guest Blogger Contest!!! How exciting is that!! Spellbinders™ is looking for one fabulous International Guest Blogger to appear on the Spellbinders™ Paper Arts Blog during the month of June! This contest is for Spellbinders™ Paper Arts enthusiasts currently living outside of the United States. They will select one International Guest Blogger to create four projects with instructions, for publication on the Spellbinders™ Paper Arts Blog. Click HERE for all of the details.

I also have a card to share with you today. I know Easter is past but I wanted to wait until after Easter to post this card because it was for my parents and I didn't want them to see it here first. Here is the card that I made for them.I created an egg shaped card using the Nested Eggs S4-264 die templates from Spellbinders™. The designer paper I used is from My Mind's Eye, Lush Blue Damask. I love the Lush line--it is so Gorgeous and comes in Black, Brown, Blue, Green, Red and Pink. To create the beautiful cross I used the Cross Collection S4-265 die templates from Spellbinders™. I used white paper to cut/emboss the crosses and leaving the paper in the die templates I airbrushed using the Copic airbrush system and marker BG10 which is a perfect color match for the Blue Lush paper. I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink from Ranger and then edges the crosses with a Metallic Gold Gelly Roll Pen from Sakura. The crosses were layered using foam tape and then I also added a few blue rhinestones from My Mind's Eye.The flowers were made using the drop out pieces from the Lotus Border Petites S4-240 die templates from Spellbinders™. I cut/embossed the border and then used the Copic marker BG10 to airbrush. I layered the flowers, added glitter and rhinestones. In this picture you can see all of the layers. Here is a picture to show you all the sparkle from the glitter. The glitter is Sparkling Snow from Sprinkle-N-Sparkle and I used a Quickie Glue Pen from Sakura to apply the glitter.Supplies~
