Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing a sweet Easter Card that I made yesterday during my Sunday Facebook Live session. The Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter cling stamp set has three cute baby animals that can be used for either baby cards or Easter cards. I made an Easter card with the cute little chick.

Here’s the Facebook Live video showing how to make the card:

I also posted the video to my YouTube Channel and you can view it here if you prefer.

I stamped the little chick from the Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter in Basic Gray ink on a small Whisper White panel and colored it with Daffodil Delight and Light Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. I cut it out with the largest stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered it to a Pear Pizzazz scalloped circle cut with the Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the Happy Easter Greeting in Pear Pizzazz ink on a strip of Whisper White and cut it out with the long stitched rectangle die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

I embossed a Whisper White panel with the Ornate Flowers 3D embossing folder. This pretty embossing folder will be available on April 1 as part of the Ornate Garden Suite Early Release. I adhered the embossed panel to a Pear Pizzazz card base with liquid glue. I added a strip of Pear Pizzazz gingham from the Subtles 6×6 Designer Series Paper and adhered the label on top with liquid glue. I adhered the chick from the Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter stamp set with dimensionals and finished the front with a Daffodil Delight bow.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the flower cluster and little bee in Basic Gray ink on a Whisper White panel. I colored them with Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather and Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Pear Pizzazz gingham and adhered it to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

Next up for Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter stamp set is a set of baby cards, also with gingham – I just need to figure out the sketch. On the sample (bottom card), I stamped the chick with Smoky Slate ink and I used Basic Gray (top card) in the video. I didn’t want to use black ink because I wanted to keep the softness of the baby chick. I think I prefer the Basic Gray, what do you think? Have a great week and stay healthy!

Stampin’ Up! Easter Promise for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is Celebrate Spring and I want to share my first Easter Card for this year.

I started by embossing a panel of Pool Party card stock with the Layered Leaves embossing folder. I adhered the panel to a Daffodil Delight card base with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered a panel of the striped Pleased as Punch designer series paper across the embossed panel with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped the crocus from the Stampin’ Up! Easter Promise cling stamp set on a panel of watercolor paper with Stazon Jet Black ink. I colored the image with watercolor pencils and the smaller brush tip aqua painter. I used Gorgeous Grape for the flowers, Granny Apple Green and Garden Green for the stems and a touch of Crushed Curry for the flower center. I colored the areas with the pencils first, with more color in the areas I wanted darker, even leaving some of the lighter areas without color. Then I went over each area with the aqua painter starting in the darker area and bringing the color out to the lighter areas.

After the flowers dried, I cut them out with the Layering Ovals die. I cut out a scalloped oval in Granny Apple Green and adhered it to the back of the watercolored flowers with snail. I popped the flowers on the card front with dimensionals. I finished it off with three Gorgeous Grape gemstones and a Mint Macaron bow.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the joyful Happy Easter sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Easter Promise stamp set with Granny Apple Green ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the flower in the corner with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored it with the same watercolor pencils as the front image – I just used a very light touch with the aqua painter so it didn’t get very wet. I added a strip of the striped Pleased as Punch designer series paper to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with snail.

I just saw some of my crocuses bloom this weekend – Yay!! Spring is just around the corner! Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy the rest of the Hop!
