Sorry I haven't posted anything all weekend but it was our anniversary and, to celebrate, we went to Sault Michigan and watched Jordan's hockey tournament. Although they played hard, the Rockets lost in the semi-finals.
Back to stamping. Here is an Easter easel card which I whipped up quickly. It is easy and fun and yet very pretty. All supplies are Stampin Up.
Supplies: Pink Pirouette Cardstock 8" X 3 3/8" Pink Pirouette Cardstock 3 ¾" X 5 ¾"
Shades of Spring DSP 3 ½" X 3" and a piece big enough to cut a 3" egg
Barely Banana Cardstock 3 ¾" X 3 ¼" and a piece big enough to cut a 3 ¼" egg
Barely Banana Cardstock scrap to punch out using Modern Label punch
Whisper White Cardstock scrap to punch using Word Window punch Chocolate Chip Cardstock to cut a bunny and 5 eggs
Ink : Chocolate Chip and Lavender Lace
Clear embossing powder
Stamps: Chocolate Bunny, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Stampin Wheel Spring Flowers (or any one you want)
2 purple mini brads, dimensional, adhesive
Scallop edged and Scallop corner punches
Score long pink cardstock at 4" and 6". Fold at score lines.
Punch the 5 ¾" X 3 ¾" pink cardstock using the scallop edge and corner punches all the way around.
Using choc. Chip cardstock, stamp the bunny with choc. Chip ink. Emboss with clear embossing powder. Heat. Cut out the bunny shape.
Cut out DSP egg approximately 3" ( you may draw and cut or use a die cutting machine). Cut out Barely Banana egg slightly bigger than the patterned one. Layer these eggs. Using dimensional, attach choc. Bunny. Attach this to centre of scalloped rectangle.
Glue this whole section to the 2" X 3 3/8" front section of long pink piece to form an easel.
Glue yellow rectangle and DSP rectangle to card base.
Stamp "Happy Easter" with Lavender Lace ink onto white cardstock. Punch out with Word Window punch. Adhere to yellow Modern label shape. Adhere to card base. Pierce holes in edges of this piece and insert brads.
Using Stampin Wheel and Choc. Chip ink, stamp design on Choc. Chip cardstock. Emboss with clear embossing powder. Cut out 5 eggs ¾" tall. Sponge edges with Choc. Chip ink.
Determine the angle you want your easel to stand at and, using dimensionals, place the eggs along the width of card base to act as a stopper to hold card upright. And you are done. They say too much chocolate, but in this case "they" are wrong. Enjoy making this cute little bunny card for someone special!
