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.

Indescribable Gift

Indescribable Gift

Easter is early this year – April 5th – so I’ll be gearing up to show you lots of Easter projects during March.  For my first card of the season, I’ve used Indescribable Gift, a beautiful stamp set in the 2015 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog.  You’ll receive this beautiful flower image plus 3 great sentiments.

  • My color scheme for this card is Pear Pizzazz, Pink Pirouette and Rose Red, with just a touch of So Saffron for the flower centers and Crumb Cake for the tree branch.
  • I’ve always loved coloring images with my Aqua Painter and stamp pads.  And while our Blendabilities are on hold right now, I’m back to one of my favorite ways to color!  I used Naturals White cardstock; this paper takes the water from the Aqua Painter much better than the smooth Whisper White cardstock.
  • Remember to stamp with StazOn when using water!
  • The pretty Pink Pirouette polka dot paper (say THAT 3 times fast!) comes from the Subtles Backgrounds Designer Series Paper Stack.
  • The splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge stamp set has got to be one of my favorite stamps of all times!  It adds just a little something to fill in around the edges.
  • The sentiment is punched out with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch.  I added a piece of Rose Red Lace from the Artisan Embellishment Kit behind it and popped the circle up with Dimensionals.
