Remarkably Created Blog Hop - Easter

Welcome to the Remarkably Created Blog Hop! I'm so glad you could join us, our theme this month is Easter and we have some beautiful samples to share along the hop. You may be just getting started here on my blog, Katrina's Kreative Heart or you may have arrived from the blog before me. If at anytime you get lost or are unsure where to go next, just look below and use the links to move from blog to blog. There is a complete list of bloggers linked below. Again, you are here on my blog, Katrina's Kreative Hear with Katrina Wolfe and I hope you enjoy your stop here. Today, I want to share a card I created using the You're Inspiring stamp set found in the Occasions Catalog. It happens to be one of my favorite sets in the 2018 Occasions catalog and I find I am reaching for it often. This time, I decided to pair it up with the Painted with Love Specialty DSP, another favorite of mine from the Occasions catalog and I am really happy with the results.


I used Calypso Coral cut 4.25" x 11" and scored at 5.5" for my card base. I cut a piece of the Painted with Love DSP 5.5" x 3.25" and adhered that to the card front. I cut 2 pieces of Gold Foil paper .25" x 5.5" and adhered them to each side of the DSP. I then stamped the Daffodils in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock and colored the leaves in using the light Old Olive Stampin' Blend pen and the daffodil flowers I used the Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Blend Markers and the light Calypso Coral Stampin' Blend just around the base of the petals to make them pop a bit. I then cut this out using the largest Oval from the Layering Ovals collection and cut a second oval the same size from a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock. I layered the 2 ovals together just slightly off setting them so that the Calypso Coral oval peeked out from behind the stamped image on the left side. I then added this to my card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. I cut a strip of Whisper White .5" x 3.25" and stamped the "Happy Easter" sentiment with the Memento Tuxedo Black ink and bannered one end with my paper snips and added that to the front of my card with Stampin' Dimensionals and added a triple bow that I made with Whisper White Bakers Twine and added that to the banner using a mini Glue Dot

A Very Special Birthday Card

Happy Easter! What are your Easter plans? I'm making dinner for hubby and I since this is his first Easter off in 11 years. As a nurse, I have always worked Easter, then once I entered the world of management and was able to have weekends and holidays off, hubby entered the world of Corrections, working weekends and holidays. Oh well, it just makes us appreciate the ones we do get to spend together.
Anyhoo, today, I want to share a very special birthday card created by a friend of mine, Nancy Woeltje, for her mom; and she agreed to allow me to share it with all of you. She used the Number of Years stamp set from the Spring Occasions catalog.

I love how she incorporated the photos into the card. Talk about a personal touch! I can only imagine the sheer joy her mom felt when she received this beautiful card showcasing special moments throughout her life. And what a great way to showcase this awesome stamp set!
Thanks so much for stopping by and having a look. Please feel free to leave a comment below and let Nancy know how terrific this special card really is. In the meantime I want to wish you all a very blessed Easter and I will see you back here on Tuesday!
Happy Stamping,
