Happy Easter - Full of Happiness Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a cute little Easter card featuring the Full of Happiness Stamp Set.  Which by the way is my featured item this week and you will see a couple more projects featuring this stamp set later in the week.  The Full of Happiness Stamp Set is a super cute layering stamp set where you build a fun little Easter Chick.   And, it coordinates with the Dino Dies in the Annual Catalog.  Here's a look at today's card.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started off my card by die cutting the words Happy and Easter three times from scrap cardstock using the Word Wishes Dies and then once from So Saffron.  Once I had all the words cut out I glued them together with liquid glue and set them aside to dry completely.  Next I cut all my cardstock and designer series paper to size, for the card base I used a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2 (Metric would cut at 10.5 cm x 29.7cm).  Then I cut my Purple Posy Cardstock to 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 (Metric cut at 14.2 cm x 9.8 cm).  My Designer series paper which comes from the Best Dressed 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper pack was cut at 3 3/4 x 5 (Metric 13.9 cm x 9.5 cm).  


I used a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock to stamp the chick from the Full of Happiness Stamp Set on.  I stamped my little cutie using So Saffron, Early Espresso, and Mango Melody Classic Inks.  Once it was all stamped out I used my Paper Snips to cut it out.  I then stamped the outline of the end in Early Espresso ink onto a scrap of the Best Dressed DSP and cut it out using the matching die from the Dino Dies.  


I then added the secondary sentiment to a very small scrap of Purple Posy Cardstock and stamped it in Highland Heather Classic Ink.  This was trimmed down to a small banner so that I could add it to the card below the Happy Easter Sentiment that I added to the card front with liquid glue.  I then added the egg with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then chick with a few Stampin' Dimensionals.  To finish off the card I added a few of the sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment to add a little bling and spring feel to the card.

OSAT Blog Hop - Chick Ewe Out!


Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am sharing my projects with you from this months One Stamp At A Time (OSAT) Blog Hop.  This month our theme is Chick Ewe Out!  This is proved to be a super fun theme to play with, and I had a lot of fun creating my two projects for you this month.  I used the Welcome Easter Stamp Set from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog.  I also used some "uneggpected" products as well.  Plus my card for this months hop has an eggcellent surprise.   Here's a look at my projects this month.  

Tips & Tricks: 

To start I designed my card before I figured out my dimensional project.  I started out with a piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock (5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4).  I then added a piece of the Dinoroar Designer Series paper; the one with the eggs on it.  I then added a super skinny mat of Whisper White and then another mat of Pretty Peacock cardstock on the outside.  I then added it the card base.  I then added a strip of the Woven Thread Designer series paper to a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock.  On top of this I added some of the Pretty Peacock Scalloped Ribbon along this piece before adding it to the card base.


Next I stamped the chick and the sheep from the stamp set and colored them in with my watercolor pencils and used the blender pen to smooth out the color.  I then cut out two of the eggs using the egg die from the dino die set.  I added a little color around the edges with my Pineapple Punch Blends.  I stamped the Sweet Friend sentiment on the front of one of the eggs.  I then joined the two eggs with a brad to secure the two pieces together.  Add by doing that it allows the egg to do this.  


Cute right!  Well, I think the 3d project is as cute as the card.  I used the purse die from the Dress to Impress Dies and some Pineapple Punch Cardstock to cut out the purse.  I then cut out one from the same pattern as the card and cut out along the inside of the stitched lines and trimmed it down just a little from the top so that it would fit on the side of the front.  I added a couple of the 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots to look as a closer.  Then added the little bunny to the front for a fun unexpected touch.  


Thanks for dropping by today I hope that you have enjoyed my project today and I hope that you have a fun time hopping along.  If you need any of the products you have seen today, you can pick them up in my online store by clicking on the shopping list below.
