More Easter and Nature’s Perfection

happy easter natures perfection

I couldn’t stop using the fun rose template that is part of the Artisan Embellishment Kit in the Stampin’ Up! 2015 Occasions Catalog.  If you missed it, you’ll find another version HERE.  I’ve also explained how to use Sponge Daubers and Stamp Pads to create the background on that first card.  This one uses Real Red roses on a background of Old Olive.

  • I die cut two Basic Black cardstock pieces for this card.  The “happy” comes from the Hello You Thinlits, and the sweet edging is a piece from Finishing Touches Edgelits, both used with the Big Shot.
  • The butterfly and the row of flowers are both stamps contained in Nature’s Perfection, a newly added stamp set to the Sale-A-Bration offering this month.  Spend $50 (before tax/shipping) on any Stampin’ Up! products, and choose this beautiful stamp set free!
  • I wanted the butterfly to have the same softly colored feel as the stenciled roses, so I stamped in Black StazOn Ink then used my Sponge Dauber and Real Red stamp pad to add a splash of color to it.  And Stampin’ Up! has a coordinating punch called Elegant Butterfly that will line up with this stamp precisely.
  • “Easter” comes from the Indescribable Gift stamp set, also in the 2015 Occasions Catalog.
  • I came up with a pretty accent and something different for this card.  I used the smallest Basic Black Button in the Neutrals Designer Button packet, then placed the largest Rhinestone Jewel in the center.  Fits perfectly and gives the right look to the card!

Nature’s Perfection Easter

Easter natures perfection navy

Today I’m showing you a card that mixes up several stamp sets and accessories.  But the real feature here is how to create the rose stenciled background piece!  I just LOVE the Artisan Embellishment Kit found on pg. 27 of the Occasions Catalog!  It’s perfect for the home crafter, with a little bit of this and some of that all in one kit.

  • One of the best parts about this kit is that there are two double-sided Sahara Sand and Whisper White 3″x4″ cards.  you can use them “as is” or you can use them like a stencil.  I combined my Sponge Daubers with this stencil, along with Hello Honey and Old Olive stamp pads, to create the pretty rose background.
  • Another element from the Artisan Embellishment Kit is the Doily.  It’s a bit smaller than the regular package of doilies we carry, and I like having some smaller sizes too.
  • I’m also featuring the newly-added Sale-A-Bration stamp set called Nature’s Perfection which stamped the butterfly and the greenery on the 2-1/2″ Circle.  I stamped the butterfly in Night of Navy ink then colored in with  and Hello Honey and Marine Mist Markers.  And Stampin’ Up! has a coordinating punch called Elegant Butterfly that will line up with this stamp precisely.  Nature’s Perfection is only available as a free gift to you for spending $50 during Sale-A-Bration.  But hurry – there are less than 2 weeks left of this fabulous sale!
  • Happy Easter comes from Indescribable Gift stamp set found in the 2015 Occasions Catalog.  I stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed using White Embossing Powder and my Heat Tool.
  • Pearls are a nice accent down the body of the butterfly and a row of them under Happy Easter.

Happy Easter Bunny card

Happy Easter Bunny card

Today I’m showing you an Easter card using Happy Easter Bunny single stamp from Stampin’ Up! that will coordinate with the gift box I posted a couple of days ago HERE.  I’ve used basically the same materials as with the box –

  • I took my color scheme from the Confetti Celebration Designer Paper using two of the many pretty prints in this package to create the belly band.
  • The Crushed Curry Ribbon comes from the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack that is one of this year’s Sale-A-Bration free gifts.  You only have two weeks left of Sale-A-Bration, and all non-stamp choices are only while supplies last.  If you’re planning to order again to receive Sale-A-Bration items, please do it very soon – I wouldn’t want you to be disappointed when your choice is gone!
  • The Happy Easter Bunny stamp set was the perfect stamped piece for the front of my card.  You really don’t need much else with this nice big image.  I was able to cut it as well as the border using the Oval Framelits Collection and Big Shot.
  • I colored the tiny pieces with my Stampin’ Write Markers in Melon Mambo, So Saffron and Bermuda Bay.  This is the perfect time to invest in the Many Marvelous Markers set of all 38 colors in our color collections.  At $109.95, you’re saving substantially by purchasing the markers all together, and this is the only way to get the handy carrying case, too.  And with Sale-A-Bration still going strong, you can choose TWO free Sale-A-Bration gifts for your marker purchase!
  • I wanted a really light look for the bunny, so I switched my coloring technique to using both the Pink Pirouette and Smoky Slate stamp pads along with my Aqua Painters.  This way, I could control the depth of color more and could be sure to get just a touch of color.

 

Happy Easter Bunny card closeup

Oh, good grief – I did it again!  Did you find the piece I forgot to color?!  I really need to be more careful next time!

Happy Easter Bunny duo

Here are the box and coordinating card together.  I love that with our beautiful Stampin’ Up! products, we can create this matching look with our gifts and cards.  It gives that added “wow factor”!  (I did go back in and hit the missing piece on the card before I snapped this photo, but that poor bunny on the box is still missing his arm!)

Happy Easter Bunny Treat Box

Happy Easter Bunny box 2_edited-1

Stampin’ Up!’s Gift Box Punch Board was instrumental in creating my Easter project today.  And it’s so easy to use!  I began with a sheet of So Saffron 12″ x 12″ cardstock and just followed along on the instructions on the handy label to create a box that is 4″ x 4″ x 4″.

Here’s how I decorated:

  • I took my color scheme from the Confetti Celebration Designer Paper using two of the many pretty prints in this package to create the belly band.
  • The bow was a snap with another fabulous Stampin’ Up! tool – the Gift Bow Die used with the Big Shot.  Just cut a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ and use it with the die.  Curling the pieces with your Bone Folder will make them easier to shape.
  • The Happy Easter Bunny stamp set was the perfect stamped piece for the front of my box.  I was able to cut it as well as the border using the Oval Framelits Collection and Big Shot.
  • I colored the tiny pieces with my Stampin’ Write Markers in Melon Mambo, So Saffron and Bermuda Bay.  This is the perfect time to invest in the Many Marvelous Markers set of all 38 colors in our color collections.  At $109.95, you’re saving substantially by purchasing the markers all together, and this is the only way to get the handy carrying case, too.  And with Sale-A-Bration still going strong, you can choose TWO free Sale-A-Bration gifts for your marker purchase!
  • I wanted a really light look for the bunny, so I switched my coloring technique to using both the Pink Pirouette and Smoky Slate stamp pads along with my Aqua Painters.  This way, I could control the depth of color more and could be sure to get just a touch of color.

 

Happy Easter Bunny box closeup

  • I just LOVE how this box unfolds!  And to put it together there’s absolutely no adhesive used!  Just slide the opposite sides together using the slits.  I made a “nest” using Bermuda Bay cardstock cut super thin, then wadded it up in a ball.  I think larger Cadbury Eggs would be the perfect thing for this box, but I only had small “eggs” of pastel peanut M&M’s on hand.

Happy Easter Bunny box open

This box is a fairly substantial size, so you could put a lot of different things in it, even a small stuffed animal.  It’s the perfect trappings for a special Easter gift!

Oh, my gosh – I just noticed a coloring goof!  Did you catch it?  I’m done with all my photo taking and editing and it’s just too late to go back and redo.  So what to do but make a game of it!  Let me know in a comment below if you can find what I did wrong.  First one to answer and I’ll send you a little something in the mail!

UPDATE:  Here’s a video that Stampin’ Up! has prepared showing how easy it is to use the Gift Box Punch Board.

BLENDABILITIES UPDATE:  Recently Stampin’ Up! has noticed quality issues with the Blendabilities product line. Due to the nature of the defect, Stampin’ Up! has concluded that difficulties, dissatisfaction, and product returns will only become more widespread. The manufacturer is unable to correct the problem in a manner that Stampin’ Up! is certain would meet their high quality standards and provide us with a stable, long-term solution. Therefore, after a great deal of deliberation and in order to prevent further disappointment, the Blendabilities product line has been discontinued.  We know how disappointing this is, but I’m proud of a company who will pull a product that is not meeting their expectations.

 

SALE-A-BRATION CONTINUES:  There are just 3 weeks left of this fantastic sale, so get in on it now!  Due to the Blendabilities not being able to be taken as a free Sale-A-Bration gift, Stampin’ Up! is estimating that we may run out of non-stamp set items more quickly than projected.  For this reason, all non-stamp set items are available only while supplies last.  If you’re planning to take advantage of the Sale-A-Bration sale this month, don’t delay in getting your order in!

My most favorite new product in a while happens to be one of the new Sale-A-Bration gifts announced this month.  It’s the Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack.  Here are a couple of cards made with this pretty paper.
