Team Stamp It Blog Hop Easter Watercolor

My Easter Card

What do you do when you don’t have any Easter stamps? You peruse the Stampin’ Up! catalog and search for inspiration. I found my inspiration on page 109 of the Annual Catalog. It’s a watercolor, eclipse card. I thought this style worked well for the card I wanted to share. It features the the Hand-Lettered Prose dies.

Here’s a quick recap of how it goes together:

  • Cut Shimmery White card stock – 5/14″ x 4″.
  • Use Aquapainters to give a wash with Pear Pizzazz, Coastal Cabana, and Highland Heather.
  • “Splatter” ink onto the card front.
  • Die cut the word with the Hand-Lettered Prose Dies.
  • Layer the Shimmery White onto a Highland Heather base.
  • “Pop up” the letters using pieces of Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Add the “Blessings” sentiment from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set on a watercolor piece with Highland Heather ink.
  • Die cut with the label from the Merry Christmas Dies.
  • Attach the sentiment with Glue Dots to the front of the card.
  • Color five Pearl Basic Jewels with Dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends. Attach to front of card.

Please let me know if you have questions about this card or how it was created.

Stampin’ Friends: Wedding Wishes

Welcome to the Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop where I’m featuring a wedding wishes card and gift card holder!

Thanks for joining us on this blog hop today. We’re showcasing cards for grads, dad, babies, and brides. Visit all of the blogs to get a host of creative ideas for upcoming celebrations. All of the links are listed after the project descriptions. Please leave a comment; we love to hear what you think of our creations.

Stampin' Friends Wedding Wishes

The Wedding Wishes Card

I really wanted to use Stampin’ Up!’s Detailed Heart Die, purchased with the intent of creating Valentine cards. But that didn’t happen! I couldn’t let the season pass without using this beautiful die.

The card features:

  • Detailed Hearts Die with Gold Foil
  • Gold heat embossed sentiment from the So Sentimental stamp set
  • Die cuts from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies

A comprehensive shopping list is included at the end of the post, after the list of hoppers.

Wedding Wishes Gift Card Holder

Wedding Wishes Gift Card Holder

This is such an easy gift card holder to create. (I had forgotten all about this style.) Here’s how it goes together.

  • Start with one of Stampin’ Up!’s envelopes. I used Very Vanilla for this project.
  • Fold the envelop in half and score.
  • With the flap facing you, use a Paper Snips to trim the top right corner.
  • Moisten the remaining flap and seal closed. The right side now becomes the holder for the gift card.
  • Decorate the front and inside cover.

Wedding Wishes Gift Card Envelope

Here are some of the materials I used to create the gift card holder:

  • Very Vanilla envelope
  • Very Vanilla panel embossed with the Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder
  • Gold Foil Heart die cut with a heart from the Stitched Be Mine Framelits
  • Heat-embossed (gold) sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings
  • Classic Label Punch
  • Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder
  • Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon
