Easter Bunny – Stampin’ Up! Card

Hello There,

Well, the Easter holiday is just around the corner now, so it is time to crank out those Easter cards so I’m not stamping them in a rush at the last minute.  Sound familiar?

I had this card idea in my head for a while.  The thought of the Easter Bunny popping up through a bunch of eggs made me smile.  Also, I was able to use the rabbit out of the Stampin’ Up! Baby set, Baby, We’ve Grown (133089) in an unexpected way, BONUS!  The eggs are out of the Stampin’ Up! Backyard Basics set, another BONUS for using those in an unexpected way also.  I’m making those sets even a better value by creating something out side of the box with them.

Have you given your stamps another look lately?

You can find the complete supply list below and also how to the get the tutorial for this project free or by purchase below.

Money Jar – Stampin’ Up! Project

Hello There,

This morning I made this jar to save my egg money in.  “Egg Money” you say, “what the heck is that?”

Well, I have sold my first carton of fresh eggs.  The girls are really laying and laying beautiful eggs.

We have 9 hens, of all different varieties, so we get quite the wonderful color assortment.

All of the hens from the chicks I got last August are laying, whoohoo.  With it being just Russ and I here we have way more eggs than we could possibly eat.  So, I am selling some of the eggs and we are going to save the money and treat ourselves to a night out with it on down the road.  Of course, I had to have a cute little jar to save the egg money in, right?

But, as I was creating this project for me, I decided to share it here because this little jar could easily be made to say “Nest Egg” to save retirement money or even “Happy Easter” with candy inside, fun huh?

You can find the complete supply list below and also how to the get the tutorial for this project free or by purchase below.

Sunflower – Stampin’ Up! Card Tutorial #630

Hey There,

It’s kinda gloomy outside here in West Alexandria, Ohio today, but it’s not gloomy in my stamping room.  I brightened things up by creating this cheerful card using the beautiful Stampin’ Up! sets Sunflower and Backyard Basics.  I love, love, love nature stamps.  Just cannot get enough of them.

In today’s project I show how to use the emboss resist technique to get a realistic looking scene.  You can find the complete tutorial for this project below.

I think I should take this card out to show the girls (my hens), they did not want to wake up and come outside this morning.  They are probably up and running about now.  I’ll collect eggs here in a moment and check on them.

***************************************************************
I’ve added the featured card of the day to my sales page where you will also find some great deals on retired stamp sets and my beginner brayer videos.  CLICK HERE TO CHECK IT OUT
**************************************************
Now on with today’s tutorial. . . . .  . .
Project Supplies:
Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Sunflower (128736), Backyard Basics (129255) and Lacy & Lovely (item 132025)
Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White, Soft Sky and Basic Black
Ink: Stampin’ Up! Crushed Curry, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake, Soft Sky, Early Espresso, Old Olive and Stazon Jet Black
Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Sponges, Stampin’ Dimensionals, , Clear Embossing Powder and Heat Gun, Versamarker, Stampin’ Write Markers (Soft Suede, Sahara Sand, Tempting Turquoise, Island Indigo and Basic Black, Blender Pen, Stampin’ Chalk Marker and Daffodil Delight Grosgrain Stitched Ribbon

 

Started with a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Whisper White card stock.  Stamped the butterfly from the Backyard Basics set using Stazon Jet Black ink.

 

To get a lighter shade of Tempting Turquoise I scribbled my marker on my Stamp-a-ma-jig plastic sheet and then picked the color up with a blender pen and colored in the butterfly.

Added Island Indigo marker with the Blender pen on the inside of the wings.

Added some darker Island Indigo on the very inside of the wings and the edges of the wings using an Island Indigo marker.

Colored the butterfly’s body in using a Basic Black marker.

Colored over the butterfly (being careful to stay inside the image) using a Versamarker.  Heat embossed the image using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.  Now my image is protected and I can stamp over the image.

Loaded the Sunflower stamp with Crushed Curry and then using sponge daubers, sponged in Old Olive and Early Espresso right on the stamp.  Then stamped the image over the butterfly.  Wiped the ink off of the butterfly with a paper towel.

Sponged Soft Sky ink around the sunflower.

Added Sahara Sand marker to the points in the Old Olive area.

Sponged Crushed Curry ink on the sunflower petals.

Sponged Pumpkin Pie ink around the base of the petals.

 

Sponged Tempting Turquoise ink at the top of the card stock.

 

Cropped my main image panel down to 4″ x 5″.  Stamped the sentiment from the Lacy & Lovely stamp set using Stazon Jet Black ink.

 

Added a 6.5″ x 10″ Basic Black card base (folded in half) and a 4.75″ x 6.25″ Whisper White panel inside the card.

Also added a 4.75″ x 6.25″ Soft Sky panel, 4.25″ x 5.25″ Basic Black panel, Daffodil Delight Stitched Ribbon and using the new Stampin’ Chalk Marker I put dots on the butterfly’s wings.  Note:  This new Stampin’ Chalk Marker is the answer to our White Gel Pen woes, in my opinion  :)  Item #132133

Here is the finished card measuring 5″ x 6.5″.

May your day be bright and cheery!

Until my next post. . . . . .
Huge Hugs!

Backyard Basics 2 – Stampin’ Up! Card Tutorial #619

Hey There,

I haven’t put away my Stampin’ Up! Backyard Basics stamp set yet.  This card idea has been rattling around in my head since I first seen this set in the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.   So, today I put it out there on paper.

It’s funny I should love bees, since I’m highly allergic to them.   But they are so necessary to our food supply.  Without their pollination, I’m not sure what there would be left for us to eat.   Not to mention, the queen bee.  Gotta love her!

I tend to be friends with strong women, my family would probably testify that I am one of them.  My husband and sons even nicknamed me the dominator, lol.  Anyhow, we probably all know someone a Queen Bee card would be suitable for.   Please tell me I am not the only one.

Hope you like it.  The complete tutorial for this project is below.  Check it out.

***************************************************************

**************************************************

Now on with today’s tutorial. . . . .  . .

Project Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Backyard Basics (item #129258), Morning Post Alphabet (hand stamp) (item #126592), En Francais background stamp (ite, Amazing Accent Wheel (item #130106)

Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White, Soft Suede and Basic Black

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Baked Brown Sugar, Sahara Sand, Early Espresso, Smoky Slate, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Stazon Jet Black

Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Sponges, Basic Black & Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers, Word Window Punch, Brayer, Honeycomb Embossing Folder, Sizzix Timeless Type Alphabet dies, Post it note and Neutrals Candy Dots

Started with a 4″ square piece of Whisper White card stock and Wheeled the Amazing Accent Wheel on the bottom of the card stock using Baked Brown Sugar ink.

Masked the image on the bottom of the card stock using a post it note.  Then Wheeled the same wheel on the right side of the card stock using Smoky Slate ink.

Removed the post it note mask and stamp the bee stamp twice with Stazon Jet Black ink.

Stamped the background stamp on the left side of the card stock using Stazon Jet Black ink.

Sponged Crumb Cake ink on the left and bottom sides of the card stock.

Sponged Sahara Sand on the Right side of the card stock.

Sponged Soft Suede ink around the edges of the card stock.

Sponged Early Espresso ink on the very edge of the card stock.

Masked all put the design on the bottom of the card stock using a post it note.  Sponged Soft Suede ink at the post it note edge to bring out the bottom image.

Colored the tops of the bee’s wings and the stripes on the body using a Soft Suede marker.

 

Colored the legs, eyes and the rest of the stripes using a Basic Black marker.

Cut a 5.25″ square piece of Soft Suede card stock and ran it through the Big Shot using the Honeycomb Embossing folder twice.  The second time lining moving the card stock over and lining the already embossed image up.  It’s simpler than it sound, lol.

 

Brayered over the embossed card stock using Soft Suede ink to bring the embossed image out more.

Layered these with 2 Basic Black panels.   Added a Whisper White card base also that measures 5.5″ square when folded.

Punched a Basic Black Word Window Punch and folded it in half and then cut it in half.

Stamped the hand from the Morning Post Alphabet using Stazon Jet Black ink on Crumb Cake card stock.  Colored the sleeve in with Soft Suede marker and then cut the image out.

Die cut the Word “queen” using the Big Shot Machine and the Timeless Type Alphabet using Basic Black ink.   Assembled my card adding the hand image and the word window punch along with Sahara Sand Candy Dots.

Here is the finished card measuring 5.5″ square.

May you be as productive as a bee today.  :)

Until my next post. . . . . .

Huge Hugs!

Started with a 3.5″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock and brayered So Saffron ink at an angle.

At the same angle, brayer Pumpkin Pie ink, not covering the So Saffron entirely.

Turned the card stock so the lightest area is at the top right corner.  Then stamped the small dots from the Gorgeous Grunge set using Gold Metallic ink.

Stamped the flower stamp twice using Stazon Jet Black ink.

Colored the stamen with Pumpkin Pie, flowers with Blushing Bride and stems and leaves with Always Artichoke.

Added Wisteria Wonder on the petals and blended it in using Blushing Bride.

Added Elegant Eggplant and blended it in using Wisteria Wonder.

Added a touch of White Gel pen to the tips of the petals and some of the leaves and the blended it using my finger.   Note: put white gel pen on a petal then blend with a downward motion with your finger tip, then do the next petal.

Sponged Always Artichoke on the bottom left corner.

Added Basic Black marker to a few of the stems and leaves to bring them forward a bit.

Cut a 3.25″ x 5.75″ piece of Wisteria Wonder card stock and Wheeled the Daydream wheel down the center of it using Elegant Eggplant ink.  Note:  Be sure to start with the seam of the wheel just off of the card stock.

Added a Whisper White card base, Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant panels.  Also added Elegant Eggplant Candy Dots from the Regals pack.

 

May your day be full of joy!

Until my next post. . . . . .

Huge Hugs!
