Happy Easter from Jean












Here’s an adorable card that Jean Okimoto created for Easter using our stencils. Imagine doing this with any of your large punches or solid dies!!

P1050686Here’s what she writes…







“I learned something important from April at Clearsnap that I’d like to share with you. (We affectionately call her April-from-Clearsnap as though she doesn’t have a last name.)   Foam inkpads – like these ColorBox Chalk Inkpads – work by compression,  so pressing down on the inkpads with the Blending Tips draws the inks up to the surface of the inkpad, making it easy to add great Clearsnap colors to your projects.
Use your ColorBox Stylus and White Blending Tips to ink smooth white cardstock with ColorBox Chalk Inkpads.  Swatch colors are – left to right, top to bottom – Orchid Pastel, Rose Coral, Ice Blue, Limited Edition Sea Crystal, Lime Pastel and Lavender.  The colors are great – and they dry in seconds so you can stencil them with The Crafter’s Workshop Life Shapes Small Mini Template TCW313s.
I used just five of the backgrounds for the card – then quickly cut them on my Grand Calibur with the Memory Box Classic Egg Die.  Cut  Grassland Border from Poppystamps (a division of Memory Box) from Bazzill Basics Hillary Cardstock.  Cut Memory Box Fringe Circle for the sun from the light yellow cardstock in the Bazzill Basics Card Shoppe Assortment.
Stamp Easter Joy from Memory Box on the pale chartreuse Card Shoppe cardstock with ColorBox Plumeria Limited Edition Chalk Ink.  Cut, score and side-fold an A2 card of the pale aqua Card Shoppe cardstock.  Assemble the card – attach the greeting with foam dots.
