Happy Easter Twister

7/21/22 Lucky Random Winner at Art Impressions Blog!
8/28/22 Spotlight Favorite at A Perfect Time To Craft Open Challenge!

Hello my friends! Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! I’ve popped in with my second post of the morning with a super adorable pastel plaid Easter card created with the amazing Art Impressions Easter Twist Set stamps and dies that I want to enter into their Perfect Plaid Challenge #331 that’s going on right now! If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Twisters, you really need to… they are so stinkin’ fun I can’t even stand it! This is the second one I’ve made – the first one was a birthday card and the post is HERE if you’re interested in looking. I LOVE an interactive card and the recipients typically do, too! ;)

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with a pastel plaid layering panel from The Paper Studio Four Seasons and Everything In Between paper pad (one of my favorites) and adhered it to the card base. Using the Art Impressions Twist Frame Dies, I cut the aperture into the front flap as well as a frame for the aperture from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Flame cardstock and adhered it to the opening.

Using the Art Impressions Easter Twist Set stamps, I stamped the front and back images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with alcohol markers, cut them with the coordinating Art Impressions Easter Twist Set die and adhered them together. I die cut two pieces of ric rac and a stitched mini scallop circle from Solar White cardstock using the My Favorite Things Stitched Ric Rac and Stitched Mini Scallop Circle STAX Die-namics. I stamped the sentiment in black ink on a scrap piece of Flame cardstock, punched it with a 1″ circle punch and adhered it to the die cut scallop circle. I adhered the ric rac and the sentiment piece which completed the card front.

I cut the inside panel from a coordinating piece of patterned paper from the same seasonal paper pad and adhered it to the inside of the card base. I cut a rectangular piece of Solar White cardstock for a signature panel and adhered it to the bottom.

And one more peek… here’s the back side of the twist element – you have to admit there’s nothing cuter than a bunny butt! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
