It’s time for the monthly TE customer blog hop – Blast From the Past where we get a chance to showcase much loved older TE stamp sets.  The theme for this month’s hop is Clean and Simple.  Now, you know that theme skeered me a bit…I mean look at the title of my blog.  I’m just not a CAS girl.  I appreciate it for sure, but do it?  Not so much!  That being said, I’m pretty happy with how my card turned out.

My card features Easter Blessings – a beautiful set that was released last Spring.  What you can’t fully appreciate in the photo is the fact that the white cardstock is Shimmer White – which is my all-time favorite.  It’s so pretty, such a soft subtle sparkle!  The cross was heat embossed with a caribbean chalk ink and clear embossing powder before being die cut with Spellbinders Labels 18 (my new fave) and sponged with Banana ink.  The image panel is popped up on foam squares.   I scored the cardbase with my Scor-pal for a little extra added interest.

I’m so looking forward to walking into church Sunday morning and joining in the cry of “He is risen indeed!”

Now it’s time to check out the rest of the hoppers and see what they’ve done with this CAS theme!
