Stampin' Up! Easter Card and Video

Stampin-up-easter-cardIsn't this bunny on this Easter card so adorable?  He's from the Stampin' Up! Fable Friends stamp set from the Occasions Catalog.  When I saw the images in this set, I fell in love...just the cutest ever.  Looks like straight from a child's storybook!

If you like to color, these will be dear to your heart, too.  I've used Stampin' Blends here but you could use Watercolor Paper and Aqua Painter or Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pens.

Here's a recording of the Facebook Live broadcast of the makings of this Easter card.  Get your cup of coffee or a glass of tea or water and enjoy!

Base: Highland Heather 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

Add This Simple Special Touch to Your Cardmaking

Special-simple-touch-cardmaking

Today's project features a tip that you can use to add a special touch to your cardmaking.  It's simple and a little "dab" will do ya!  (I am definitely dating myself!)

The main image on this card is from one of the beautiful Sale-A-Bration sets, All Adorned, which was released in February. You can only get it by earning it for FREE with a $50 product purchase. This ornate look inspired me to create a card to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, March 17th.  But, really, you can wish someone a lucky day any time!

Instead of using the traditional greens, Mint Macaron and Shaded Spruce from Stampin' Up! take the spotlight here.  And, see that little sparkle and shine?  That's the secret!  Let's take a look at today's video tutorial.

 

Lisa's Inklings:

  • The card base is Mint Macaron cut at 4 1/4" x 11".
  • Shaded Spruce layer is cut  4" x 4 3/4".
  • The Gold Glimmer strips are cut 4" x 1/2".
  • Whisper White for the main image is cut 3 1/2" x 3 1/2".

Here are the supplies used for this cardmaking project.  Simply click the links for more information or to shop.  I would love to serve as your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

Happy Mardi Gras!

Happy Mardi Gras! 

Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) is today and this little girl is showing off some her beads that she was given during the parades this weekend!  Everyone wanted to throw Mia some beads.  Most would simply hand a trinket or toy off of their float and say "for the baby".  She had quiet a haul over the three day period of parades of Mardi Gras Southeast Texas.

Here we are (Honey and Papa) with our little bundle of joy!

Image may contain: 3 people, including Lisa Solis Brown, people smiling, people standing

The three colors of Mardi Gras are purple which represents justice, green which represents Faith,  and gold which represents power. 

If we want to translate those colors into Stampin' Up! colors this year, we would have:

Purple- Gorgeous Grape

Green - Call Me Clover

Gold - Crushed Curry

Mardi Gras is French for Fat Tuesday which is the day before Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. You can see other Mardi Gras projects that I've created here with this treat and here with this decorative banner which hung on my back door for years!

Thanks for stopping by today to take a peek at our weekend and Happy Mardi Gras!
