Easter Card with Easter Message Stamp Set

I've been making Easter cards and am getting ready to send them out! I just love the elegant simplicity of this card. I was inspired when I saw this card and just had to create my own version.






Product List
This is one of 3 cards we'll be making during my monthly stamp class

Tips for creating this card:

  • On a piece of Whisper White card stock cut to 5 1/4" X 4", stamp the sun image (from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set) first in Crushed Curry ink.
  • Then, stamp the cross image (from Easter Message) in Soft Suede on top of the sun. 
  • Stamp the Happy Easter image on the top.
  • Next, stamp another cross image on a scratch piece of Whisper White card stock. Use a Blender Pen to color in the cross along with just a little of the Early Espresso watercolor pencil. Then I cut it out. (You might be able to just run the Blender Pen over the stamped cross to "smear" some of the Soft Suede ink to color in the image.)
  • Adhere to the card base using Stampin' Dimensionals.
Isn't that simple? That's my kind of card!


We're down to just the last few days of Sale-a-Bration 2017! Can you believe it? There's still time to purchase these and all your stamping supplies and take advantage of all Sale-a-Bration has to offer!

Paper Pumpkin - A Sara Thing Exclusive Kit

Exciting news about an exclusive Paper Pumpkin kit for April!




This is an exciting opportunity because for the last couple weeks of Sale-a-Bration (through March 31st), the 3-month pre-paid Paper Pumpkin kit is on sale AND you'll qualify for a FREE Sale-a-Bration product AND if you subscribe by April 10, the first kit you'll receive will be Sara's exclusive kit! Woohoo!

That's exciting news for sure!

Wondering what is in Sara's kit? We won't know until it starts hitting mailboxes in April. That's the fun of the Paper Pumpkin kits, though. It's a surprise each month and everything you need for a creative, fun time is in the box. 

If you're a new subscriber, you'll also receive a clear block in your first kit. That way, as you receive future kits, you've got a block to use. 

Most kits include:

  • Exclusive stamp set
  • Ink in the form of an ink "spot" (a little square of ink), or a marker
  • Base supplies like card bases, envelopes, pre-printed papers to use, etc.
  • Adhesive like specialty glue dots (you'll still need your own tape runner or similar adhesive).
  • Embellishments like ribbon, twine, rhinestones, etc. 


To give you a better idea of what Paper Pumpkin is all about, take a look at these past kits. Super adorable!

Look What We'll Be Making this Month Using Dragonfly Dreams

Every month we gather together to make some fun projects. This month we'll be creating the following cards using the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and coordinating Framelits. We'll also make a third, bonus card (not pictured):


We'll be creating a washed background effect using an Aqua Painter and Wisteria Wonder ink. Simply pick up the color using the Aqua Painter and lightly brush it back and forth on the card stock. You'll want your brush just a little damp (the Aqua Painter tends to allow a lot of water to flow, so just be careful).




Join me to make these adorable cards!
Sunday, February 26 at 3 pm
Fort Worth
Cost for 3 cards: FREE with qualifying order or $10 check or cash

I've always loved yellow and black together and the gold bee on this card just really pops!



I hope you'll join me this month for some stamping fun!

Happy Stamping,
