Gina K Sneak Peek Day 1: Easter Blessings


I just love the new Easter Blessings set illustrated by Rupa Shevde; it's so elegant and classic and full of beautiful Scriptures encompassing the wonderful occasion of celebrating the resurrection of Christ, which incidentally is only about 5 weeks away.  

I found these beautiful speckled malt eggs at Central Market a few days ago that I thought would be perfect to display in this sweet mini basket shared by Claire that I made.  The main basket was made using Lemon Tart by Papertrey and the liner is SU! brushed gold metallic cardstock, which  is perfect to highlight the gold specks in the candy.  The sheer bronze flower & leaf are from a package of blooms I got at my LSS, which I made a point to support this Friday and it felt good {especially since I got the long coveted Tim Holtz design ruler which I used a lot this weekend when I was creating}.  Both the basket and top note die were ran through my cuttlebug with the textile embossing folder.  

The Easter lillies in the set are so pretty, aren't they?  I love all the images in this set and know I will use them all to make Easter cards to send to friends and family.  

Be sure to check out what wonderful sneak peeks the rest of the design team have to share with you today, including our In the Spotlight designer for this month, Sharri!

I love the colours you chose for the lilies. In Saskatchewan I am so accustomed to seeing orange lilies, that I sometimes forget the white ones are just as gorgeous.
