Easter Message – Stampin’ Up! Card


Hello there,

Easter is just a bit over a month away, do you believe it?  Well that means it’s time to start making those special Easter cards.  Here is one for you with lots of heart and sunshine.  Reminds me of a sunrise service.

I created this card using the Stampin’ Up! set, Easter Message.  One of those must haves to share this Easter Message.

Easter Bunny – Stampin’ Up! Card

Hello There,

Well, the Easter holiday is just around the corner now, so it is time to crank out those Easter cards so I’m not stamping them in a rush at the last minute.  Sound familiar?

I had this card idea in my head for a while.  The thought of the Easter Bunny popping up through a bunch of eggs made me smile.  Also, I was able to use the rabbit out of the Stampin’ Up! Baby set, Baby, We’ve Grown (133089) in an unexpected way, BONUS!  The eggs are out of the Stampin’ Up! Backyard Basics set, another BONUS for using those in an unexpected way also.  I’m making those sets even a better value by creating something out side of the box with them.

Have you given your stamps another look lately?

You can find the complete supply list below and also how to the get the tutorial for this project free or by purchase below.

Introducing Photopolymer by Stampin’ Up!

Always wanted to be a graphic designer?  My favorite part about design is typography. I adore type. There’s just something inherently beautiful about letterforms and what happens when you stack them to create different shapes and combine them to say different things.  So without further adieu, let me introduce you to the Designer Typeset Stamp Set. It’s based around a really great san serif font that will work well on just about any project. And then there are embellishments and shapes to take whatever you want to say to the next level. The possibilities are seriously endless.

I’ll admit, once you start playing around with the stamp set, you will have a hard time stopping!

But before we get too carried away, let’s get to talking about the benefits of photopolymer stamps. For those who are unfamiliar, let me point out a couple of things that are really cool.

First, they’re completely clear, making it oh-so-easy to stamp exactly where you want. They come unmounted, on an acetate sheet, and temporarily adhere to our clear blocks. Awesome!

Second, they are pliable. Want your arrow to shoot a certain way? No problem! Want your banner to have the perfect sag? Easy peasy! Being able to play with the shape gives you even more creative freedom.

So let’s get down to the nitty gritty. The Designer Typeset Stamp Sets in the online store starting now. So just click HERE to order yours today!
