Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to you and your family!

I hope you are enjoying a special day with your family!  I love Easter.  It’s my second favorite holiday to Thanksgiving.  Easter brings so much hope.

Living in the Northeast, we are starting to see buds on the trees, hastas pocking through the ground, rain that just smells of grass and not snow, and those blessed birds that have returned and with them their beautiful music in the morning.  Can you believe it’s supposed to get to the 80s today!!!

For my card today, of course I had to make an Easter card filled with bright colors

My card base is Mint Macaron cardstock (which, can we just pause for a second and say how much I am going to miss this color!!!  There’s none like it in the Stampin’ Up! colors and I am almost in mourning over it’s retirement.)  Moving on – I took a panel of Flirty Flamingo cardstock and dry embossed it with the Petal Burst embossing folder and then matted it on Whisper White cardstock before adhering it to the card.

Next I stamped my sentiment from the Suite Sayings stamp set in Flirty Flamingo on some Whisper White cardstock.  Using the Layering Ovals Framelits, I cut the sentiment out and another scalloped oval (a smidge bigger) to mat behind it.

Lastly, I stamped and cut out my flowers and leaves using the Falling Flowers Bundle.  I stamped each image in the same color as the cardstock (i.e., Flirty Flamingo ink on Flirty Flamingo cardstock) and cut them out with the coordinating framelits and adhered them around the sentiment.

Enjoy and Happy Easter!

Today’s card was inspired by the challenge at Color Throwdown this week.

Easter Tic-Tac-Toe

I am having so much fun with the Basket Bunch Bundle (stamp & matching thinlits).  They’re perfect for Easter, spring, baby, and anything bright and fun!

Today I used the chick and egg image to create an Easter tic-tac-toe card.

My card starts off with Blushing Bride cardstock which I dry embossed using the Sparkle Embossing Folder.  I then cut out a 2″ banner using Silver Foil cardstock and adhered it over the center of the card.

I created my tic-tac-toe by cutting out a 3″ square of Whisper White cardstock.  At the 1″ and 2″ measurement, I used a Basic Black Write Markers and drew lines to mark the grid.  I used Memento Black ink to stamp three chick images and three egg images and cut them out using the Basket Bunch Bundle.  Before adhering the chick, I stamped the legs in each square. I layered the Whisper White cardstock over some Daffodil Delight cardstock and adhered it to the card.

For my sentiment I used the Alphabet Labeler stamp set and Blushing Bride ink which I fussy cut out.  I adhered them using the outer edge of Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Blessings of Easter

If you’re vising my blog from Amy’s, WELCOME!  I’m so glad you swung by for a visit!

It’s hard to believe next week is Easter!  With just a week to go, I went with Easter Blessings for today’s card.

I started with a base color of Pool Party and layered it with Whisper White.

I then layered Blushing Bride with a sweet pattern from the Birthday Bouquet DSP.  I used the Circles Framelits to cut a smaller circle out of them both first.  Then I ran just the Birthday Bouquet DSP through with the next bigger size Circles Framelit.

Easter - Stamp It Up With Jaimie This gives the “framed” look around the sentiment.

Easter - Stampin Up - Stamp It Up With JaimieI traced a circle onto the Whisper White, so I’d have an idea where to stamp my sentiment.  The Easter sentiment comes from the Suite Saying Stamp Set and is stamped in Blushing Bride.  The Blushing Bride/Birthday Bouquet frame was then adhered to the Whisper White cardstock using dimensionals.

I added a satin knot in Whisper White to complete the card.

Enjoy and a very Happy Easter to you and your families!
