Springtime Hello for My Wonderful Mother

Springtime Hello for Mother's Day

Mother's Day isn't too far away, so today I'm showing you a card using Springtime Hello stamp set from the Stampin' Up! 2014 Occasions Catalog.  You could also use this card for Easter.

  • I love the color scheme – Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Basic Black – and I got this from the Stampin' Up! Color Coach, a great tool for combining colors successfully.
  • The Daffodil designer paper is from Quatrefancy Specialty paper
  • The little Basic Black cardstock edging was created with the Stampin' Trimmer using the Rotary Addition and TIny Wave Cutting Blade.
  • The main image is created with the Springtime Hello stamp with markers in Daffodil Delight and Old Olive, then punched out with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch.
  • Delightful Dozen stamp set offers so many sentiments – this one is stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with the Heat Tool and Black Embossing Powder.
  • Did you know that a quick coloring with a Sharpie can turn your Basic Pearls into any color you choose?  Here I've used a black Sharpie to create black pearls.

Springtime Hello for Mother's Day inside

Because I used Basic Black cardstock for my card base, I decided to do a little decorating on the inside, too.  I lined the inside with Whisper White cardsotck then stamped a coordinating image and used a strip of the designer paper down the side.

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.

Happy Easter – Christ Is Risen!

Have a most blessed Easter.  So sorry I didn't share these cards with you sooner, but maybe there are some of you who have waited until the last minute to make your Easter cards.  And you can also save these ideas until next year!  Be sure to purchase Easter Dove single stamp before the Occasions Mini Catalog retires on April 30th so that you can make these gorgeous cards in the future.

I took these photos of our demonstrator-created card display at Leadership Conference in January.  Sorry that two of the pictures are quite blurry, but they were gorgeous designs and I couldn't re-take the pictures!  All cards are made by Stampin' Up! demonstrators who attended Leadership; I don't have the designers' names to share.

Great idea using the Paper Doily Large Sizzlits Die!

Love this folded paper cross using the Sale-A-Bration Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper – any of our beautiful designer papers will work!

Gorgeous background using Houndstooth Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Love the flowers from Bordering on Romance stamp set!

Very cool use of the Lattice Die!

Just adore the brayered colors and lily.

All cards use Easter Dove single stamp set, Item No. 125455 for just $6.95.
