Welcome to the Team Stamp It Blog Hop: A watercolor card for Easter
Welcome to the March Blog Hop! Thanks for joining us today as we share a variety of Easter cards and projects. Be sure to visit each one and leave a comment. Comment with #stampitcontest to be entered into a drawing to win the Botanical Prints Medley.
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’ Up!’s Fable Friends Easter Trio
I just love to get packages in the mail, especially when they’re from my talented team member Beth Doty. She loves to make treat packets and fill them with chocolate, and she even includes my husband.
Here’s the trio of goodies I received a couple of days ago. She’s paired Stampin’ Up!’s Fable Friends stamp set with the spring-like Gingham Gala 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.
Good news: The Fable Friends stamp set will be carried over and will be available in Stampin’ Up!’s new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog (you can order from it beginning June 4). The Gingham Gala 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper is still available, but it will be retiring soon. If you like this palette of pastels, order soon.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Punch and Fable Friends Stamp Set
As the day begins in Nebraska, the birds are chirping, and the trees are budding. It’s definitely spring, and we celebrate Easter this weekend.
I’m sharing a super cute card I CASEd (in case you haven’t heard this before, it means: Copy and Share Everything) from Fun with Stamping.
The bunny ears are created using Stampin’ Up!’s Daisy Punch. I punched the flowers in the colors that coordinate with the Gingham Gala 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Lemon Lime Twist and Highland Heather). I then used snips to cut the daisy in half and trimmed away the extra petals.
The sentiment comes from the Fable Friends stamp set, and you could easily replace “Happy Spring” with “Easter Blessings.”
Good news on two fronts: both the Daisy Punch and the Fable Friends stamp set will be available in Stampin’ Up!’s 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. However, the awesome Gingham Gala 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper will be retiring. So, if you love that, think about purchasing it sooner rather than later before it’s gone
This is the time of year Stampin’ Up! releases the list of items that will be retiring to make way for new and fun products. With that said, some others need to go. Perhaps the best way for you to see this list is to go directly to my online store and peruse the list. Links are below. Just let me know if you have questions. Something to note: You might see a lot of stamp sets on the list. SU! is retiring the format of the stamp – wood and clear mount – and replacing them with the cling mount.
Retiring Everything Else
Thanks for stopping by today! Please let me know if you have questions, most especially about the retiring items. It can be very confusing, and I’d like to help!
Stampin’ Up! Fable Friends
I probably don’t need to tell you it’s April 1 and Easter is less than three weeks away! This cute little bunny from Stampin’ Up!’s Fable Friends stamp set is here to help you celebrate. This guy and other spring images are available from the Spring Occasions Catalog (#148670–$22 cling set). Look on page 30.
This card was created by Beth Doty and also features the Buffalo Check background stamp with Balmy Blue.
