Hello Stamping Friends,
I have so many cards to show you! Let’s start with Easter, though it is a bit late for you to CASE (copy and share everything!) If you need a few last minute cards, Donna Truitt, our Stampalosopher teammate, had a beautiful card for the Elizabeth Stamp A Stack.
The card uses the Work of Art Stamp Set, the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder and the Oval Framelit #5-(counting from smallest to largest). The greenery is from the Bird Builder Punch; the Petite Petal Punch with a pearl center makes the flowers. The wing from the Bird Builder Punch is used for the large leaf at the top. The banner is from the Hearts A Flutter Framelits set (retired) and the greeting is from the Circle of Spring stamp set. You could make a few of these in no time!
Soft Sky: 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ Scored at 4 1/4″
Whisper White Top Layer 4″ X 5 1/4″ and egg layer of 3 3/4″ X 5″
Scraps and Inks: Pear Pizzaz, So Saffron, Blushing Bride, Wisteria Wonder, and Soft Sky
I wanted to send Donna an Easter card and couldn’t send her the same one she taught us to make, so I did a bit of revising:
I purchased the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Dies intending to use it for a Valentine card but chose to make something else, so the set was paid for but totally neglected – until now! I followed Donna’s example with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder but went down a size in the Ovals Framelits and used the #4 Oval so I could fill most of the egg with the cut-out. An extra pink flower was placed at the top where the heart shape left a bit of a blank. The Work of Art Stamp Set was used to create the color before cutting out the Bloomin’ Heart:
I was delighted with the Bloomin’ Love stamp set and Thinlits Dies. The stamp has a little guide for stamping so that you can cut out a perfect flower with the thinlit that also has a little guide:
But you do need to mark how you stamped! Hmmm….. we could have made shamrocks with this set. I sure hope it carries over into the new catalog coming June 1. The greenery that you have never seen is Stampin’ Up! Check it out:
It is a little piece of the Thinlit! I love how the little buds look and one leaf looks like a heart! So cool. The greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamped on the banner in the Bloomin Love stamp set. I fussy cut the banner but it does have a framelit in the Large Numbers Framelit Dies set on page 10 of the Occasions catalog.
And for the inside:
I have used this sunburst from Kinda Eclectic so many times. Celebrating and Sunshine are both in the Crazy About You Stamp set and I used the retired Family Reunion set for the Son stamp. The corner stamp is another stamp in the Bloomin’ Love set with an additional thinlit flower cut out with the Big Shot. The flowers can be stamped solid or there is also a stamp with just the flower outline. A great set with lots of versatility!
I used Soft Sky for the base and our shimmery white card stock for the layers.
Inks: Wisteria Wonder, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, Pink Pirouette
