Berry Corner Easter Card

I thought I'd share something a bit different today, an Easter card I made for the recent German shows (there was a set of mix and match greetings stamps). Done on Centura Pearl card with gold embossing and a beautiful red bow this could have been a really classy, elegant card................

but I decided to go BRIGHT. 

I cut the egg on my Cameo (from a Jennifer Wambach design from the Silhouette Store) and started to decorate it with the Clarity Berry Corner stamp. I have the set of Memento Dew Drop ink pads so I had a good selection of colours to play with.  It was all going well until I picked up the wrong green three stamps from the end on the first attempt.  I may have said a few very bad words at this point!

I then decided I wasn't happy with the design so I started again on a slightly different version.

This happened a couple of times before I was happy with it. As you can see I wasted quite a bit of card on this "simple" project. I was convinced it was a good idea though, so I persevered and eventually ended up with something I was pleased with.

I stamped the greeting inside but it looked a bit too plain, even for me.  I went rummaging through my ribbon box and found a small piece of bright green ribbon.  It was just what it needed to finish it off.

I just have finishing touches and photographs to take today, then next weekend's UK samples will be ready to post tomorrow. I went into my craft room this morning, it looks like a disaster area! I thought you might like to see what sort of mess a "Lynne at Work" makes.  It's only fair as I have photos of my pristine room at the top of the page.  :-)

The dining table is also covered in ProMarkers where I've brought bits downstairs to work on. I think I'm going to be very busy cleaning and tidying on Wednesday!!!! Will post again when I've tidied up, just to show I'm not a total slob. Although it will soon be back in this state when the next box of stamps arrive. Keeping my craft room nice a tidy is a bit like painting the Forth Bridge! :-)



  1. Fantastic concept Lynne, really clever (but I think the bow is green not red unless my eyes have gone funny)!

  2. What a great idea! I think rainbow colours always look right, whatever the project (with sympathy? perhaps not...)

    How honest of you re craft room in use photos. It is like the Forth Bridge paint-over for us all - the best tip is to clear up entirely after each project/design challenge/brief/whatever! I suppose once a month is a good goal for many but I favour the after-every-card!

    Enjoy the next project, Lynne.

  3. Hi Lynne picked you up from Eileen's blog. Lovely colours for the egg. How lucky are you to have such a huge craft room... Dee x

  4. AAAAAAHHHHH Easter?!?! have got Christmas sorted yet. LOL

    great card isn't it surprising what you can do with those little corner stamps?

    Well Jealous of your craft room. Mine is the version on your dining room table.xx
