SU Easter Lamb

 

February 12, 2016

I pulled out the cute little SU Easter Lamb to create something.
It is a $10 wood mount stamp hiding on page 24 of the Stampin’ Up Occasions Catalog.
I didn’t mount it on the wood block though, I just attached the sticker to the stamp itself and used it as a clear mount- a little temporary adhesive and it sticks just fine to an acrylic block!

SU Easter Lamb White Pen

To jazz up this fine line image, I used my Signo white gel pen to color in some of the lamb’s wool- mostly the bigger circles. I colored in his little hooves and gave him a touch of Blushing Bride to his ears. I also colored over the blades of grass with some Pear Pizzazz marker. I was inspired by Amy’s design over at Freshly Made Sketches # 223:

SU Indescribable Gift Spring Easter Card

March 6, 2015

We made these pretty pop-up Z- fold Easter cards at class this week using the SU Indescribable Gift stamp set. You will see this fun folded card all over the web by many crafters so to credit the  actual originator is hard to do…

I love this versatile stamp that is definitely perfect for Easter but so many other occasions like birthday, sympathy, thank you…

SU Indescribable Gift #4 front

  • The Pink Pirouette card base is a portrait A2 card (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) with a die cut opening. On this card, it is a 3 1/4″ square framelit. You could use any shape.
  • The folded stamped Whisper White inside is 5 1/4″ x 6″ scored on the longer 6″ side at 2″ and 4″. My upline Linda Heller figured out these measurements. Once you stamp it, adhere the last 2″ section onto the right side of the inside of the Pink Pirouette. Now, you simply accordion fold the two other sections, and close the card.
  • Now you will see the white portion on the right side of the opening on the front. Put adhesive on the white part and adhere the front stamped and bordered image.
  • On this card, I made the black border 3 1/4″ square to correspond with the square opening I die cut with the framelit. The next smaller pink border is a 3″ square and then the white stamped image is a 2 3/4″ square.

I decided to share this Spring Easter card with the folks at

The Paper Players for Laurie’s Spring Challenge # 234.

SU Indescribable Gift

January 16, 2015

Happy Friday, friends!

You can tell by Sara’s Friday Mashup 193 that spring is on her mind

during this cold winter season!

But then, we who live in the north are ready for spring once Christmas is over!

193f

This week’s Mashup Challenge is:

Create a project with the “Triple Layer Technique” Tutorial HERE.

Create a project that’s “Floral.” 

or Mash it Up! and create a “Floral Triple Layer Project.”

I was playing around with some new stamps from the Occasions catalog and decided a card I made for my Stampin’ Brunch fit in with the FLORAL theme.

I stamped the Indescribable Gift floral image and heat embossed it with Iridescent Ice inspired by a card I saw by Sharon Burkett who used a sentiment from the Butterfly Basics on a white card base background. I liked how the pink card base coordinated with the flowers. I love how the Iridescent Ice takes a CAS card a step up. I actually think I could have flipped the image so the branch was coming down from the top left corner like it is on the stamp case. But, I guess I will next time:)

SU Easter Treats with Scallop Tag Topper Punch

Here is a sweet little treat box we made at Stamp Class this month using the Scallop Tag Punch. I was inspired by Leonie Schroder’s tutorial at Stamp-A-Latte. It was fun putting together the bunny butt and adding my touches but my favorite thing was the little gingham egg. I stamped the SU Six-Sided Sampler gingham hexagon in Daffodil Delight and used the small oval punch to punch out the egg! The treats were filled with the pretty jelly beans:)

I also used the scallop tag punch and the egg on the favors for my stamping girls this month.

Paper Crafters Sampler Easter Cross Templates

 Need a little vignette for an Easter table or side buffet table? Melanie Schulenberg at Paper Crafters Sampler has just what you need. Here are a few projects I made quite easily.

SU Stippled Blossoms Both Crosses

 

I wanted to share this Free Standing Wedge Base Cross Easter Decoration- a project you can download over at the Paper Crafters Sampler website. Melanie Schulenburg has  done the work for us and created an easy printable template to create this free standing cross in no time at all. All I had to do was print it, cut it, score it, and decorate it. It is about 7.5″ tall by  6″ wide. I kept thinking how this would be a  great Girl Scout or Sunday School project.

SU Stippled Blossoms Standing Cross CLBD

I also made this  3.5″ by 5.5″ Cross Box with a template Melanie created. You can find this template with all the awesome projects created for that month for just $6.99.
