Easter Card Trio

I happened to see this stamp in a bin at the craft store last week and scooped it up because it reminded me of SU’s A Good Egg. The matching Easter greeting was also too cute to pass up! Since I was snowed in today, I had time to make three versions of Easter cards–read on for the details.

Above: Card base is Barely Banana card stock, layered with Shades of Spring DSP. Stamped image is from Studio G, stamped on Gina K luxury white card stock, colored in with Copic Markers. After coloring in the chick, I applied glue using the 2-way Glue Pen and sprinkled Martha Stewart white flocking powder on top.  (Close up view below). I also embellished the shell using the Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

To finish off the card, I made a faux bow by taking Certainly Celery Satin Ribbon, making two loops, and pinching the center with a Circle Rhinestone Brad.

The second card is a 4 1/4″ square card, on Gina K luxury base weight card stock, layered with Tall Tales DSP cut to 4″ square. I stamped the chick and colored it in with Copic markers again, making it fuzzy with Martha Stewart flocking powder. Then, I layered it on Barely Banana card stock, and adhered it to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

Lastly, the third version uses many of the same techniques I described above. In addition, I paper pierced around the main layer and popped it up with Stampin Dimensionals. The patterned paper is from Shades of Spring and goes perfectly with the theme of this card.

Tall Tales Animal Cards

Lately, I’ve been on a Designer Series Paper kick. Is it just me or are the DSP’s better than ever? Here, I used Tall Tales DSP as my main image, stamping only a sentiment and adding some embellishments for a quick general occasion card.

The base is Barely Banana, cut to 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″. I layered the Tall Tales DSP with Chocolate Chip card stock to make it pop more. Across the front, I added a 1″ x 4″ strip of Chocolate Chip card stock and then wrapped 5/8″ Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon around the top layers.

The sentiment is from Whimsical Words (a Saleabration set) stamped in Chocolate Chip ink on Whisper White. I punched that out with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch and layered it onto Old Olive that I punched out with the Scallop Circle Punch. The brad is a 1/4″ Chocolate Chip Epoxy Brad from the Occasions Mini. I adhered the Scallop Circle to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

This is another version using the same ingredients as above, with a few changes. First, this card is A2 size, 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. The base is Close to Cocoa, layered with Tall Tales DSP and Chocolate Chip card stock.

Since the paper is so bright and busy, all I did was add a sentiment and embellishment to the front. I stamped “small wonder” from Whimsical Words in Chocolate Chip ink on Whisper White and then punched it out with the Large Oval Punch. I layered that onto a Rose Red Scallop Oval Punch and using the cropadile, added a Circle Rhinestone Brad in green to the “o” of wonder. That was then attached to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

Good Neighbors 3 Versions

Version 1: Brocade Blue card stock base layered with Close to Cocoa and Autumn Meadows DSP. The stamped images are from Good Neighbors. Ink colors of houses are from left to right: close to cocoa, brocade blue, old olive, and so saffron ink.  The roofs are stamped in river rock, close to cocoa, and basic gray. I stamped them on Very Vanilla card stock, layered with Close to Cocoa and a strip of Dusty Durango card stock punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch.

Version 2: Brocade Blue card stock layered with Close to Cocoa layered with Autumn Meadows DSP. Again, I stamped the houses from Good Neighbors on Very Vanilla card stock, matted with Close to Cocoa and attached to the base with Stampin Dimensionals. The sentiment is from So Many Sayings, stamped in close to cocoa ink on Very Vanilla, punched out with the Word Window Punch and layered on the Modern Label Punch in Dusty Durango, attached with Dimensionals.

Version 3: Old Olive card stock base layered with Tall Tales DSP in a dotted/striped pattern. I stamped Good Neighbors on Very Vanilla card stock, using my SU Markers to color the stamps. I layered that onto So Saffron card stock and then Chocolate Chip card stock.
