Happy 1st Easter card featuring Stampin' Up!

Happy Easter!!!

I was asked to create a first Easter card recently and this is what I came up with. It was a labor of love starting with Anna Griffin Christmas perfect palette (card base and top note). I grabbed a my Cuttlebug, a scrap of patterned cardstock from DCWV, Spellbinders, Wink of Stella, stamps and flowers from Stampin' Up! among other things.

To achieve a more pastel look, I added Memento ink and stamped off onto scrap paper before stamping on my project. In other words, I used the 2nd generation stamping technique for both the sentiment and the focal. The sentiment came out too light so I decided to trace it with a Spica at you glitter pen by Imagine Crafts. Then I went over the focal with wink of stella for a subtle glittery finish.


  • DCWV nana's kids
  • ribbon from my stash
  • Stampin' Up! crochet flowers stamps sets - well scripted, Easter blossoms
  • Anna Griffin Christmas perfect palette - card base and top note
  • Spellbinder's scallop circle die
  • Tree House Studios - leaf sequins
  • Cuttlebug summer set
  • Recollections pearls, 3D Lots
  • Memento inks
  • Wink of Stella
  • Imagine crafts - spica at you glitter pen
  • Studio G - Internal sentiment - some bunny loves you

This card can still fit in a normal envelope. However, to be double sure I'd suggest a padded one.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday with friends and family!
