Easter Cards

Friday, March 11th, 2016

Easter is coming soon and I have been working away in my craft room to create some fun cards to share with you for a week!  This one actually becomes a baby card, just by changing out the sentiment.

Today’s Tips:

-Again, use the Easter Lamb stamp set.  Keep the Happy Easter sentiment for an Easter card, or use this sentiment from Suite Sayings for a baby card.

-I used Pink Pirouette for a girl, try Soft Sky or Pool Party for a boy.

-The Washi Tape Punch is a perfect fit for this sentiment, and the 1-1/2 punch is small enough so the lamb is peeking out to match the sentiment.  Stamped with Whisper White ink on Basic Gray Cardstock, he is too cute.

-The top panel is made with the Elegant Dots Embossing Folder, first sponged with the matching Happy Patterns Stencil.

-The bottom pane is the metallic silver from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack – a must have when you see it in person.

-The Silver Metallic tape across the center is a Sale-A-bration freebie.  You can find all these supplies at my website shop.

-Stamps are again from Honeycomb Happiness.  This time I masked the cute little chickie to make an even cuter group.

-Again the Oval framelits and Softly Falling Embossing Folders- great staples for your crafting table.

-The Word Window punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals and Bow Paper Clip Embellishments.

-The chick stamp is FREE for Sale-A-Bration at my website shop !!!

-This card works for Easter or any occasion, depending on the sentiment you add to the inside.

Today’s Tips:

-Again I used the Fringe Scisssors for some grass and the cute chick from Honeycomb Happiness, paper pieced with So Saffron cardstock.  This time I gave a little spritz to the honeycomb with Tangerine Tango ink and alcohol (I already had that color mixed up).  I need to figure out a better way to do that  – my fingers got colored more than the Honeycomb!

-Use the Circle of Spring wreath for the background and sentiment.  This is in the Annual Catalog and I almost forgot about it!  Dots at the top are from the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.

Today’s Tips:

-Use the Hardwood background stamp to make the fence.  Just cut apart the boards and use the square punch to top the posts.  Again, the fringe scissors are great for a row of grass.

-The bunny is made from the 2″ circle punch, the smallest oval framelit and the oval punch.  His tail is a honeycomb.  He sure has big feet – but those are the smallest ovals I could find!

-Stamp set is Greatest Greetings.  You can find all these supplies at my website shop.

Today’s Tips:

-Use your scraps of Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper from the previous card and the Blossom Bunch Punch to make some flowers to line the frame.  I used the White Perfect Accents for the flower centers.

-Again use the oval framelits to make the frame.  Here I stamped with the Grateful Bunch and the Suite Sayings stamp sets.

Easter Treats

Easter is coming soon, so I’m sharing a few fun ideas.  I kept eating the candy from the basket I showed the other day, so I stapled it in these treat bags to give away.  My inspiration was the cover of CardMaker Magazine:

Easter treat bags

Today’s Tips:

-I used a half piece of doily (129399, $3 for 24), so I could make all 25 bags (140578, $6 for 25 bags).

-I used the Bitty Banner punch on some scraps of Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper from my January class heart card.

-I used the same Birthday Blooms stamps set with Gold Dazzling Details for the flower centers.

-The Easter sentiment on the cover photo card is from the Suite Sayings stamp set and the paper is Birthday Bouquet.

-You can purchase all these products at my website shop and earn a Sale-A-Bration freebie too!

Todays Tips:

-card 1:  Paper Toile is a fancier version of Paper Piecing.  The extra images are cut out and mounted with Stampin’ Dimensionals in several layers.  Curling the petals can give even more dimension.  I added gold Wink of Stella to the stamens and also splatters by tapping the brush.

-card 2:  I used a simple watercoloring technique with an Aquapainter and ink on watercolor paper on the Easter Lamb.  To step it up I added a vellum overlay stamped with the lamb and the little circles dry embossed on the back using a Stampin’ Mat and stylus.

-card 3: I used the Double Matted Frame Technique with the Oval Framelits and Birthday Blooms Designer Paper.  The little chick from Honeycomb Happiness is watercolored with an Aquapainter and inkpads on Watercolor Paper.  And I made this card just a few hours BEFORE I saw Sara’s periscope using the same stamp and paper!

-3D 1:  The Berry Basket Die cut is cute enough to stand alone.  I just added a strip of Birthday Blooms DSP with Pool Party Ribbon and a couple Punch Art designs (Bow Builder, Festive Flower Builder).

-3D 2:  This is the only project I made previously to this week.  This is the Christmas gift I made for all my downline using the It’s My Party DSP Stack, Going Global stamp set and some simple hardware pieces with our Metal Rimmed Pearls.

-Scrapbook Page:  I took a few photos yesterday- before it started snowing again!  I like to use both Project Life and traditional pages intermixed in my Project Life by Stampin’ Up! Albums.  Here I used pieces from the Memories in the Making Card Collection and Accessory Packs with the Project Life Day to Day stamp set.  I added some more Birthday Bouquet DSP, punched eggs and masked chicks from Honeycomb Happiness – can’t get enough of that cute little guy!
