ODBD February New Release

Good morning friends!
It's time for the new February release Blog Hop at Our Daily Bread Designs!!
There are lots of new stamps and dies this month so
 I hope you will enjoy seeing all the designer's samples as you hop along!!

Today my cards are all about Easter!
I heat embossed the Easter Egg Background with white embossing powder then rubbed Wild Plum, Stream and Beach Ball Yellow dye inks over the embossing and wiped off the excess just to add some more fun Easter colors.  The Flourished Happy Easter is heat embossed with white as well and then die cut with the Stitched Oval and framed with white using the Oval die.
I die cut the new Easter Eggs and die cut some coordinating colors for behind (the Easter Eggs die also comes with the small flower die).  I cut the Ornamental Cross from glossy white to give it a new texture/color of white and added a dusty pink acrylic bauble that matches the pastel paper exactly!
For a final touch, I added the sheer white ribbon to my card; I think ribbon and bows just make a card more elegant or fancy, don't you?

My next card is everything Christ centered!  The perfect Lamb of God went to the cross for us.
And on the third day, early in the morning, He rose again!
I've made my card an easel card so that I could have my Easter display and also use the large Happy Easter in all it's flourished beauty showing all at once.
I stamped my sentiments in London Fog because of the gray tones on my little lamb...I just liked it better.  I also used an embossing folder for the top part of the card after stamping the sentiment then added the partial Double Stitched Circle at the bottom (like a sun rise).   I love plaid and this pastel plaid matches perfectly with the pastel solids.  I used the Double Stitched Rectangles and Rectangles for all of my framing on both top and bottom. The Cross was die cut twice, I left the pieces in the bottom (I tape them from behind to make sure they stay in) to make the base for my cross.
These are all wonderful new designs for Easter but there are some other new designs out this month that you will see in the other designer's blogs. Have fun!
