BASKET BUNCH EASTER CARD


Basket Bunch Stamp Set & Matching Framelits

5 1/2 x 7 3/4" soft sky card stock
score at 4 1/4" & on  then cut it at 6" This is off the shorter side

2) 1 1/2 x 5 1/4 peekaboo peach cs
2) 1 1/4 x 5 Inside the Lines designer series paper

Sponge the designer series paper with Peekaboo Peach, Soft Sky, & Flirty Flamingo inks.
Mount the DSP onto the Peekaboo Peach cs
Mount 1 unto the extra piece of Sky Blue cs (this is the bottom of the card front)
Mount the other onto the folded top of card.

Use the largest Stitched Shapes square framelit & a piece of Soft Sky cs.
Cut the grass out of glimmer paper.  I had the mint that was a free Sale-a-Bration item.  You could use any green card stock.

The basket is Crumb Cake cs & the ink is Peekaboo Peach.  Stamp & cut out the Easter eggs & bunny.  I colored the bunny ears & bow.  I used the Clear Wink of Stella on the ears, bow & tail.

Attach the grass to the square.
Attach the handle to the back of the basket
Use a glue dot on the lower front of the eggs & attach to the back of the basket
Use glue dots or tear & tape on the bottom of the basket & attach to the square.

Put tear & tape on the top & bottom of the back of the square.
Close the top flap of the card & attach the square to it.
Now carefully line up the bottom piece on the card front & attach the square to it.
The square is what holds the bottom of the card on.

With the card closed stamp the Happy Easter (from teeny tiny wishes) in the opening 


Open the card & stamp the "You're egg-stra special" The words were stamped using Flirty Flamingo ink.
Stamp the eggs along the bottom-Soft Sky & Flirty Flamingo ink.

Now close the card & attach the bunny to the front.

We had fun making this card in class.  Each card was a little different.  It was fun to see how everyone used their colors.

Just for you card








Here is today's card!




The stamp set is called So in Love.  You can see the 3 stamps I used for the card front.  The words are in the stamp set also!

5 1/2 x 8 1/2" Blushing Bride cs - fold in half at  4 1/4"
3 1/2 x 5 1/2 Very Vanilla cs

Stamp the 3 flowers using Sahara Sand Ink.

Stamp the flower on a post it note & cut it out.  You can cut 2 or three of them.


Put the post it note it note flowers over top your stamped images.  Now stamp the leaves.


Not stamp the small twiggy thing. (not sure what to call it, but it is pictured above.)


Cut a piece of Very Vanilla 1/4" Satin Ribbon-about 6".  Tuck & tape it under on the left.  Use a glue dot or tape on the center flower to help hold it in place.



Cut another piece of the ribbon about 5". Fold & put on the card with tape or glue dot.  This part will all be hidden when the card is finished.


Stamp & cut another flower out of the blushing bride cs.  I used a blender pen & blushing bride ink to add a little more color.  Then I colored over it with the clear Wink of Stella pen for some sparkle.  I attached the flower with dimensionals.


The greeting was stamped with black ink on a 1 x 2 3/4" piece of Very Vanilla cs.  I used the Triple Banner punch on both ends.  Sponged it with Blushing Bride ink.  Tape or glue this piece right on top of your flower.

Hope you liked this card.  I made mine into an anniversary card, but it would work for about anything!

Special Reason Stamp Set
Stylish Stems Framelits-(Matching the ) Stamp Set

5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Calypso Coral cs--score in half at 4 1/4"
2) white cs 2 3/4 x 3 1/4  & a scrap piece
3 x 3 1/2 So Saffron cs  & a scrap piece

Stamp the leaf that looks like a vein with Calypso Coral ink on the front of the card base.  This in hard to see in the picture, but it gives it a little extra "pop".

Cut out the flower with the framelits on one of the white pieces.   Sponge with the Colypso Coral ink & the So Saffron ink on the other white piece.  I did some lighter areas & some darker.  Lay the white piece over the top that has the flower cut out.  Make sure that the entire flower cut out has color under it.  If you need to sponge more you can.

Take the piece with the flower cut out & stamp the leaves on it.--Garden Green ink.

Now you can put the tape or glue in the corners & lay the 2 white pieces together.  Sponge around the white edges with the Calypso Coral ink.  Mount the white on the So Saffron piece with dimensionals.

Stamp the Happy Birthday on the scrap piece of white.  Cut out the white & So Saffron pieces for the greeting.  Sponge around the white with the Calypso Coral ink & mount the white onto the So Saffton with dimensionals.

Mount both pieces onto the card front.

I stamped the saying on the inside with the Garden Green ink (wishing you a beautiful day) & stamped the smaller flower in the bottom corner with the Calypso Coral ink.

Hope you liked it!

Sale-a-Bration thanks card


Pear Pizzazz cs 5 1/2 x 8 1/2--score at the half 4 1/4" & fold
DSP is cut at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2"  It is the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-Bration catalog. (You can get it free with a $50.00 merchandise order.)

Inks
Tempting Turquoise
Sweet Sugarplum
Pear Pizzazz

I used the Sponge Brayer (pg. 180 in catalog)  roll it in the Sweet Sugarplum ink & then roll it over the DSP. Just keep rolling in the ink & then on the paper till you get the darkness you want.  Then I changed the sponge on the brayer & did the Pear Pizzazz ink.--Then the Tempting Turquoise ink.  The colors will overlap a little.  After you get the colors the way you want them attach it to the card front.

The Thanks was from the Hello Thinlits.  Cut it out of Very Vanilla cs using your Big Shot.  I used a sponge to lightly dab the glue onto the word & then attach to the DSP on the card front.  The dragon fly was from the Detailed Dragon Fly Thinlits--use very vanilla cs.  I lined up the tail with the n in thanks.  I felt it made it easier to read this way.  I attached the dragon fly with 2 dimensionals under the wings & close to the body.

I tied a bow out of bakers twine & attached it with a glue dot!

I hope you liked this card.  If you need any supplies just click on my StampinUp website on the left to shop!  Thank you!  Be sure to leave a comment to let me know how you like the card!

1) 5 1/2 x 8 1/2" Elegant Eggplant cs. fold in half at  4 1/4"
2)  4 x 5 1/4 Perfect Plum cs
2) 3 3/4 x 5 whisper white cs.

Wild Wasabi ink
Crumb Cake ink
Elegant Eggplant ink
Black ink

Use one piece of the perfect plum cs to cut the layer for the greeting using the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies.  They are in the Occasions Catalog on page 42.

Stamp the birthday greeting from the Avant Garden stamp set using Elegant Eggplant ink.  Cut it out with the framelits & tape the 2 layers together.

You can mount the 2 Perfect Plum pieces on the card.  Yes, one will have the cut out of the greeting, but no one will see it when we finish the card.  One piece goes on the front & the other is inside the card.

Stamp the white cs now for the card front.  Ink the flower in the Elegant Eggplant ink and stamp it twice.  Notice how one flower is lighter than the other!  After you stamp the flowers stamp the leaves using the Wild Wasabi ink.  The flower center is stamped in the black ink.   Stamp the other piece of white cs for the inside.  Just put 3 flowers in the corner - you will need to have room for your saying or to write inside!
Stamp whatever saying you want on the inside & then you can tape it inside the card.

Now you are ready to stamp the little dots in the Crumb Cake ink on the card front.  Now you can tape it to the front of the card.  Put the greeting that you cut out on with dimensionals.
