As soon as I saw the Easter Message stamp set, I knew I wanted to use it for Easter cards. I love the messages and the Easter images. The cross image is stamped with the Archival Basic Gray and colored with an Aqua Painter and Perfect Plum and Soft Suede ink refills. The Archival Basic Gray ink is a permanent ink and great for water coloring. You must let the ink dry well before coloring, so it will not run.

As I was creating the card, I realized that the background needed something a bit more and was just too stark white. I have been pulling out my Stampin’ Spritzers more often, and find spritzing is just perfect for adding a subtle color to the background. I started with heavier spritzing in the upper left corner of the 4″ X 5 1/4″ piece is Whisper White cardstock and then used less ink as I moved to the lower right. I like the variation and light background you can create with the spritzing.

You can stamp the inside of the card with the lily and the “Happy Easter” greeting. I am trying to remember to stamp the inside of the card, but it is not a habit yet. It doesn’t take much time, but I just don’t think about doing it very often.

The Sealed With Love Bundle was perfect for Valentine’s Day, but what about now that it is March? I changed up the colors and patterned paper and created 2 cards using the Sealed With Love Bundle that would be perfect to use now after Valentine’s Day. 

Scroll down to see a video tutorial on how to make this card.

Stampin' Up! Sealed With Love Bundle in non-valentine cards. Find supplies in my online store at www.shopwwithmystamplady.com

For this card, I chose the colors Mint Macaron, Perfect Plum, and Tip Top Taupe. The little envelopes are cut from the 2015-2017 In-Color Paper Stack. I love these colors, and unfortunately the In-Colors Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe will be retiring with this current annual catalog. The retiring colors usually sell out once the retirement list is announced in May, so be sure to shop early for these colors.

I used a larger piece of Carried Away paper with this card to create the focal piece. By using a large piece of patterned paper, you can quickly add color without having to stamp many images. All the colors I have used for these cards have been pulled from the Carried Away paper.

Creating banners is one of the quickest ways to used patterned paper. I have left a lot of white space with this card and just added a bit of color behind the main detailed balloon with the Carried Away paper. It is easy to create banners by just notching on end of the paper.

The sun is trying to come out here in the upper peninsula of Michigan, but it is competing with the snow. I decided to create a card that does send you sunshine with one of the fun Best Birds. I love the dies that come with the Best Birds Bundle because I do not have to fussy cut. Combined with the die-cut word from the Sending Sunshine Bundle, I sponged some sunshine right onto this card.

Stampin' Up! Sending Sunshine with best birds. Find supplies at www.shopwithmystamplady.com

I sponged Daffodil Delight ink in the upper left of the focal piece and then added a bit of Blushing Bride in the lower right of the card front. It was such an easy way to add color to this card. And do you want an easy way to add color to the bird and branch? Use the wonderful Watercolor Pencils and an Aqua Painter. It was so easy and I love the result. The Watercolor Pencils are currently available.
