Let’s Welcome April

Hello and welcome to my creative blog. I am so happy that you are here!

Stampin’ UP! has some awesome new products for the month of April. I am very excited to share all of them with you.

Paper Pumpkin

April 2020 Paper Pumpkin

For April, Paper Pumpkin has created a fun, family appreciation themed card kit that will make it easy for customers to share their hearts with those they love most: mom, dad, daughter, son, sister, and brother. April’s kit even includes Mother’s Day and Father’s Day sentiments, providing the perfect way to show appreciation for beloved parents on their special days with a beautiful, handmade card.

One more thing about this “fam-tastic” kit: The Paper Pumpkin team knows that everyone’s clan is unique. With that in mind, they’ve provided sentiments that would include anyone in your life who feels like family; for instance, “brothers” and “sisters” who have helped you along the journey of life.

Take a look at this video to get even more of an insight into the April kit.

Sadly we will not be able to get together to unveil and create this month’s kit in person. However, I would love to do an online party or live post … an unveiling of the Paper Pumpkin kit if you will. I am taking some of my extra at-home time to learn more about this so stay tuned!!

If you would like to receive this month’s Fam-tastic kit please click here to subscribe or contact me to add one to my order for you. Deadline to get your order in is April 10th.

Back on Your Feet

Hello and thank you for popping in to check out my post for the day!!

Today’s post showcases some simple cards. I used just the basics… paper, stamps, ink and markers.

I think that the sentiments included with the Back on Your Feet stamp set are perfect for the state of the world right now. In addition, the images will brighten anyone’s day!

Cute right? Here are the three simple cards that I created.

As promised the cards are super simple. I’ve been trying to decide on my favourite … but I can’t choose. Which do you like best?

The coloured animals and the sentiments on each card are stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I used Sahara Sand to stamp the random little guys.

Let’s Colour …

I coloured the animals with my Stampin’ Blends. Have I told you how much I love these markers? Here’s a close up of each with a list of the Stampin’ Blends that I used for each of them.

Sweet Friend

Today I want to share with you another adorable Easter card that I created. I am taking advantage of this extra time at home and getting all of my Easter cards done and ready to send out. This year I think that my friends and family will appreciate some happy mail more than ever!!

Today’s card that I am sharing with you features the super fun Fable Friends stamp set.

Fable Friends (148670) $30.00 – Annual Catalogue

I can not resist these cute little animal images, they are perfect for Easter!!

I chose to use the bunny image for my card today. He is so adorable and reminds me of Peter Rabbit in the Beatrix Potter books I loved as a child.

I coloured Mr. Rabbit with my Stampin Blends markers … Crumb Cake, Gray Granite, Flirty Flamingo and Balmy Blue. I then fussy cut him out and bumped him up onto the lovely stitched shape from the Wild Rose framelit dies.

The Sweet Friend sentiment is part of the Welcome Easter stamp set in the January – June 2020 Mini Catalogue. I have stamped it using Crumb Cake ink and cut it out using the Stitched So Sweetly dies, I love the stitched edging!!

To finish the card off I added six of these beautiful spring flowers. These are stamped using the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set and punched out with the Small Bloom punch. Both of these items are available for free when you spend $60 or $120 during Sale-a-Bration promotion.

The flowers are stamped in So Saffron, Blushing Bride and Pool Party. To get the 3D look for the flowers I put them in the palm of my hand and press into the middle of them using the back end of a pen. To complete each flower I added a small pearl to the center.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope that today’s post has inspired you to do a little crafting/stamping of your own. Let’s make the best of our extra time at home one craft project at a time 😉

Sending hugs … take care and stay safe!

Happy Stampin’

Hello my Stampin’ peeps … Like most of you I am staying at home right now and find I have so much more time on my hands. Although the outside world’s health situation is scary I am focusing on trying to stay positive and am spending a lot of time in my happy place …. my Craft Room!

Today I want to share with you some of my latest card creations. With the signs of spring upon us and Easter just around the corner I can not seem to get enough of the adorable Welcome Easter stamp set. These little critters are so cute and are sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face.

Welcome Easter and new little ones with the Welcome Easter Cling Stamp Set. A baby chick, a bunny, and a lamb would look sweet on any spring-themed project. Greetings include sentiments for Easter projects and cards for new babies. Line art images are great for basic stamping techniques; color and customize them using any of our coloring tools.
Welcome Easter stamp set (151559) $27.00

I started by recreating this fabulous card by Chic n’ Scratch that I found online. It was so adorable that I then had to make another using Petal Pink … I love the way they both turned out!

Product List

Sticking with the Easter theme I decided I would create another card … I couldn’t decide which adorable little guy I should use so I decided on all three!!! I pulled out some of my lighter Stampin’ Blends colours and had a lot of fun bringing these images to life.

Product List

Are they not just the cutest?!

Like I said I could not stop playing with this stamp set … up next some adorable baby cards!!! I love the sentiment that is included with this set and the font is perfect to go along with the fun little animals.

Product List

My creative afternoon did not end there. While I was on the Chic n’ Scratch website I came across another fun fold card that I wanted to try. I switched it up a little and made another sweet baby card, This time I also brought in the So Sentimental bundle to add a different sentiment in the bottom corner.

Product List

As you can see this stamp set has endless possibilities and I have only just begun!!

I hope that as we all face these uncertain times you find a little time to do something that makes you happy … crafting is good for the soul!!

Stay safe everyone and Happy Stamping!!
