Ink to Paper - More February Release Cards

Hello everyone! I can't seem to stop using the spring/Easter goodies from Ink to Paper's February release and got on a roll and created four new cards! I decided to pair the Blossoming Branches set with the Risen and Just Sentiments: set on my first card.

STAMPS: Risen, Blossoming Branches, Just Sentiments: Easter (Ink to Paper).
PAPER: White, Kraft, Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky (Papertrey Ink).
INK: Green Parakeet, New Leaf, Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky, Dark Chocolate (Papertrey Ink); Memento Tuxedo Black.
DIES: Risen, Blossoming Branches, Border Bling: Tin Stitch, Mix and Mat: Postal Die (Ink to Paper/Papertrey Ink).
OTHER: Black Enamel Accents.

My next two cards feature a large sentiment die as the focal point.

I color blended the background then splattered water droplets over it to add more visual interest. After dry, I heat embossed flowers and leaves with white embossing powder. The frame is popped up with foam tape.

STAMPS: It's A Sign: Birthday Sentiments
INK: Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers distress oxide ink
PAPER: White, True Black (PTI); Ranger water color; Vellum
DIES: Pierced Feature Frames, To Die For Sentiments: Happy Easter

This die is such a beautiful combination of fonts! I wanted a homespun, quilted look so adhered patterned strips to the background. This is a great way to use up those paper scraps!

INK: Sweet Blush, Aqua Mist (PTI)
PAPER: Bitty Big: Aqua Mist patterned papers; White, True Black (PTI)
DIES: Risen, To Die For Sentiments: Risen

I thought it would be fun to use a variety of sentiments to create a collage style focal point. Again, the fonts are so beautiful and varied! The tag was popped up using foam tape.

STAMPS: Just Sentiments: Easter; Risen, Blossoming Branches
INK: Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz, Green Parakeet, New Leaf (PTI); Memento Tuxedo Black
PAPER: Raspberry Fizz, True Black, White (PTI); Patterned stripes
DIES: Blossoming Branches, Tag Sale: Quilted Die
OTHER: Black Enamel Accents

Hi Wanda,
I just received the floral cross and dies on Saturday, and took time to experiment with the set, making a couple of tags. I love all your Easter projects and pinned the one with the quilted background to try later. Thanks for a fun and inspiring visit!
