SU Delightful Dozen

SU Backyard Basics Easter Eggs

LeAnne has a theme challenge for us this week at The Paper Players # 190.



She has asked us to use the concept of “three” in our creations. I chose an Easter card with three eggs and three butterflies- technically, the larger butterfly is just “one” butterfly. It was so fun heat embossing the white on the eggs and the sentiment. I still get amazed how that powder magically changes. Boy, did my Stamp-a-ma-jig come in handy with the sentiment. And, I believe my stamping girls now see how invaluable that tool really is!  I could not resist adding a border to the photo with the pretty pastels. And, those jelly beans were yummy…

SU Secret Garden with Delightful Dozen

Happy Monday, friends! I fell in love again with the SU Secret Garden stamp set this weekend. It is just so pretty and comes with framelits that make cutting a breeze! I peeked over at Freshly Made Sketches # 129  and was inspired to make this card for my mommy.

SU Backyard Basics with Delightful Dozen

I was musing over Lisa’s inspiration card at the Muse Card Club Challenge #56


and the sketch at Pals Paper Arts # 193


and a light bulb went off…both had a theme of three in them so I went to the designing board…here is what I came up with:

SU Backyard Basics Easter Card with butterfly

Card Recipe:
STAMPS: SU Backyard Basics, SU Delightful Dozen
INK: SU Calypso Coral, SU Daffodil Delight, SU Coastal Cabana
PAPER: SU Whisper White, SU Daffodil Delight, SU Coastal Cabana, SU Calypso Coral
ACCESSORIES: SU Pearls, SU Coastal Cabana Ruffle Trim Ribbon
TOOLS: SU Backyard Basics Framelits, SU Lattice EF

I am so thankful for the Backyard Basics Framelits that coordinate with the images in the set so no fussy cutting for me even if it was only an oval egg! Aren’t the images just lovely in this set? And this card only used the speckled egg which at first, I thought was a bit large but it worked out just fine for me! I am using this stamp set with its framelits a few different times this month with classes, design teams, and some card orders- I love it when I can use a  set in so many ways.
