Welcome Easter Facebook Live Mini Class

Hello everyone I hope that you are having a wonderful week so far!  Remember this is hump day and the middle of the work week so not much longer.  I am here with you to share this weeks Facebook Live Mini Class with you and a few tips and tricks along the way.  This week I am featuring the Welcome Easter Stamp Set and will be sharing with you a three different ways to color images.  I actually shared one tip with your earlier today if you missed my post from this morning you can click here and check it out.  



Saleabration is Stampin' Up!'s biggest Sale of the year; where you get rewarded with free items based on your orders.  There are two different levels as the last few year.
During this weeks Facebook Live Mini Class I am going to be making three projects with you to get you ready for  Easter and I am going to share with you three ways to add color to your projects. I based today's class off of the card I shared this morning.  On my post this morning I shared a card using my watercolor pencils and a blender pen to color in the images.  Here's a look at that card.  

 In case you've never joined me for Facebook Live, I go live every week, (typically on Wednesday at 8:00 pm CST) on my Facebook business page with one to three projects.  On the second Wednesday of the month I will be doing my Facebook Live mini Class at 4 pm CST due to scheduling conflict.  Everyone is welcome to join!

If you were unable to join me live I will have uploaded the video here afterwards.  If you are not able to see the embedded video you may have to click here.  


This Week's Projects: 

For my first project tonight I tried to come up with a way to add color to an image without really having to color.  So I thought about using another stamp set to fill in the color or using one of the Best Dressed Note Cards.


For my next project I made a regular A2 size card using the bunny from the stamp set.  I used the Easter Blessings stamp from Itty Bitty Greetings for the sentiment.  I watercolored the main image of this card with ink and a blender pen.  I thought it was a fun little card and quick way to add some color.  You can go as simple or use as much coloring you would like.  


My finial project for the night was this cute little easter box using the sheep image from the Welcome Easter Stamp Set.  To color my little Ewe I used stampin' blends in Flirty Flamingo, Gray Granite, and Highland Heather.  This is a really easy box to put together and is a quick project to make to fill with Easter Treats.

CASE the Catalog - Easter Promise

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you one of the CASE the Catalog Swap cards that I got back in November.  Easter is around the corner and I wanted to share this cute card with you today.  I am not sure who made this card in the swap group but I love what they did.  The card that was CASED (Copy and Share Everything) from the Easter Promise Card on the top of page 44 of the January-June Mini Catalog.  Here's a look at the card I received.

Tips & Tricks: 

For this card the card base was made from Purple Posy Cardstock (5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4).  There's a strip of Purple Posy Cardstock that has been embossed with the Spripty 3D embossing folder along with the stitched nestled label die cuts.  The center square was made with the largest square in the Stitched Shapes Dies.  

The flowers and the Happy Easter Sentiment were both heat embossed with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and then heat set.  The flowers where colored in with stampin blends in the following colors; Purple Posy, Rococo Rose, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive.  Once the flowers where colored they were cut out using snips.  


Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your weekend.  If you need any of the supplies you can order them in my online store by clicking on the items in the shopping list below.  
Happy Stampin'

Treat Week 2020 #5 - FULL OF HAPPINESS Cadbury Egg Easter Buggy Treat Holder


Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you today's Treat Week project.  This is day 5 of Treat Week and I have a super cute project to share with you featuring the Full of Happiness Stamp Set.  I designed this project in mind to hold a Cadbury Egg but you will notice that there's not one in the treat holder today, because I couldn't find one.  Last year at this time they were already out in the stores.  I couldn't find one when I went looking for them this year.  This project only uses a few supplies and you will be so surprised how easy it is to put together.

If you are viewing this post by email you will have to click here to view the video or on the image below.
As I mentioned above this is a super easy project to make all you need is a piece of cardstock that measures 2" x 4 1/2".  You are going to score on the small side at 1/4" on both sides.  Add tear and tape to the score lines and snip small notches all the way down.  The Egg cart front was stamped with matching ink to the cardstock.  I used Bermuda Bay on one and Soft Sea Foam on the other.  I cut the eggs out with the Dino Dies, the egg shape from this die set matches the egg from the Full of Happiness Stamp Set.  Watch the video for assembly tips.  I stamped the little chick in Daffodil Delight ink on Whisper White cardstock.  The eyes was done with Early Espresso and the beak was stamped in Mango Melody.  I fussy cut this little cutie and added a little snail adhesive to the bottom and added it to the egg.
To finish off the egg buggy I added used the Arts & Craft dies to cut out four large buttons and then strip of buttons in matching cardstock.  I trimmed the medium and small buttons off the strip to fit on each large button to make the wheels.  I stamped the sentiment on a strip of whisper white and added it with mini dimensionals.  To finish it off I added a daffodil delight bow made with the, Daffodil Delight 1/4" ruched ribbon, with a mini glue dot.  Thanks for dropping by if you need any of the supplies to make these projects you can order them in my online store by clicking on the items below.
Happy Stampin'
