Happy Easter!

Easter Love is Kindness

Wishing all my readers a very Happy Easter!  I hope you’re able to spend some meaningful time with friends and family celebrating today.

I grew up in a tiny New York State town – population about 600! – and most people were Dutch.  We had a tulip festival every year, decorating floats and crowing the tulip queen.  Beds of tulips bloomed in the center of town.  It’s always been a big part of my childhood memories, so when Stampin’ Up! came out with Love is Kindness single stamp with the beautiful tulip bouquet, I knew I just had to have it.  But I wanted to have the capability to use it without the sentiment.  This layout – cropping the image out with a Circle Framelit and Big Shot – helped solve that problem easily.

  • I took my color scheme from Painted Blooms Designer Paper, using Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, Rose Red, Blackberry Bliss and Daffodil Delight, and I used the Wild Wasabi striped piece for the banner.
  • A piece of Wild Wasabi Painted Blooms Cotton Twine looks nice and natural.
  • Love the tiny Butterfly Punch – just a simple Rhinestone in the middle sets it off.
  • My sentiment comes from Indescribable Gift.  What a beautiful saying to begin this Spring season!

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.

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!

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!)
