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.

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.
