Easter Take Care

Take Care SAB 2014

You'd be surprised at how many everyday stamp sets can work for various holidays!  I saw my Take Care stamp set on my shelf and thought it was perfect for Easter.  I'm hoping and praying for Spring here in New York State – I actually did see a robin a couple of days ago, so it just has to be here soon!

  • I've loved using the 2014 Sale-A-Bration free gifts this season.  In this card, I've used the Decorative Dots embossing folder to replicate the egg look, and the Summer Starfruit twine that's contained in the Sweet Sorbet Accessories, both of which are yours free, each with a $50 order placed.  But hurry – Sale-A-Bration only lasts until March 31st!

  • I stamped my main image on a piece of Whisper White cardstock that's been die cut with the Labels Collection Framelits.  I used markers to ink up the tree image, and the nest is stamped with Crumb Cake ink
  • I stamped the eggs in Soft Sky ink then added some 2-Way Glue and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter for a sweet accent.
  • Three Soft Sky Candy Dots from the Subtles Collection also add a third element to tie in the background and eggs.
  • "Happy Easter" is from my tried and true Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

Blessed Easter

Today's post is my second Easter card for the season; in case you missed my first one, it's HERE.  I'm also showing you ways to use two of the free Sale-A-Bration products that can be yours when you place a Stampin' Up! order.

  • Blessed Easter is such a beautiful stamp!  It only comes in wood and is a single stamp, but you can convert it to a clear-mount stamp if you wish.  I split up the image and sentiment by stamping the sentiment on a piece of scrap cardstock and punching it out with the XL Oval Punch then mounted it with Dimensionals.
  • Tulips were stamped with StazOn Ink and colored in with Stampin' Write Markers.
  • I've used a Springy color scheme of Gumball Green, So Saffron, Crisp Cantaloupe and Strawberry Slush.
  • The Labels Framelits are terrific for layering!
  • The two terrific Sale-A-Bration products are the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder and the Crisp Cantaloupe Twine from the Sweet Sorbet Accessories pack.  For each $50 you spend on Stampin' Up! products, you may choose a gift from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure completely free.

Live Happy

 Mary's birthday

I can't imagine a more wonderful thing to say to someone – "Live Happy".  Doesn't that sum it all up?  I made this card for my precious sister for her birthday, and really, that's the best thing you could wish someone!

Today's card features a very pretty Sale-A-Bration stamp set called You're Lovely.  And this stamp set can be yours FREE with a $50 purchase this month only!

  • Basic Black, Coastal Cabana and Strawberry Slush make an impressive color scheme!
  • There are actually three stamps used from the You're Lovely set – the main image is one stamp, "live happy" is another and then the tone-on tone stamping on the Strawberry Slush cardstock is a third.
  • Using my clear-mount stamps, it was easy to space the stamp perfectly in rows.  I just lined up the edge of my block with the edge of the preceding image.
  • You're Lovely coordinates with our Deco Label Framelits for easy cutting out.
  • The In Color Designer Series Paper Stack is perfect for this card – lots of fun, bold designs in all 5 colors!
  • Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon and a few Black Candy Dots accent this card nicely.

You Make Me Happy

Happy skies

I have to admit I had just a teensy bit of panic as I began to create this card and realized that we have just a little over three months left with the 2012-14 In Colors!  I can't believe these luscious colors are close to retiring!  I don't know how I'm going to live without Summer Starfruit!  And there's nothing else like Gumball GreenMidnight Muse is so much richer than Night of Navy, and the pinks are so pretty.  And the In Color Dahlias – oh, no!  So if you haven't purchased your 2012-14 In Colors, you won't be sorry if you make the investment.  And if you own stamp pads in these amazing colors, I strongly suggest ordering ink refills for each pad so that you can use them for years to come.

  • My card shows off a couple of Sale-A-Bration items – the stamp set is See Ya Later, and I've used the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder on the Gumball Green cardstock.
  • Don't think the High Tide Designer Paper is only meant to coordinate with the nautical stamp set!  Here I've  used the pretty Summer Starfruit pattern to bring some more texture in.
  • The Adorning Accents Edgelit makes a pretty scalloped border.
  • I have to say my most favorite tool in our 2014 Occasions Catalog is definitely the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  I've already used it so much, and there are so many interesting ways to use it. 
  • The Hearts Collection Framelits will give you any size heart you need – and I added a Summer Starfruit Dahlia to it – does it look like a sun to chase away the gray skies?
  • Some pretty Primrose Petal Ribbon is tied up with White Baker's Twine to complete the top of the tag.
