Happy Monday! Today the monthly card class featured All About Easter projects. The group had fun making cards and several treat holders. Since Easter is approaching in a couple of weeks, I’ll be sharing the projects in the next several posts. The first of the projects is an Easter greetings card. Have you seen the bunny from the Fable Friends Cling Stamp Set in the Occasions Catalog? The bunny is so cute so I knew he had to be included in some of the projects. The bunny also reminds me of the bunny from the Beatrix Potter books. The Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder adds dimension to the background layer.
Create the card base using Crumb Cake cardstock. Next, texture emboss a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Grapefruit Grove cardstock using the Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Attach to the card base using adhesive.
Stamp the bunny from the Fable Friends Cling Stamp Set onto Whisper White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Then color the bunny body using both Crumb Cake Light and Crumb Cake Dark Stampin’ Blends Markers. Highlight the center of the ears and the bunny abdomen using the Petal Pink Light Stampin’ Blends Marker. Notice the bunny’s jacket? The jacket area of the bunny stamp is stamped onto a scrap of Grapefruit Grove Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper. After stamping, use paper snips to “fussy cut” the jacket. To add grass around the bunny, use Granny Apple Green Classic Stampin’ Pad and the grass stamp from the Fable Friends stamp set. Cut using the large oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. Use the large oval die from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies to cut Crumb Cake Cardstock. Layer the bunny oval onto the Crumb Cake Oval.
Using the Memento Tuxedo Black Ink pad to stamp the sentiment from the stamp set onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. The sentiment tag uses the Detailed Birthday Elements Framelits Dies which are now discontinued. However, it’s easy to create a tag using an oblong die such as in the Storybook Scene Thinlits. Use a handheld circle punch to create the circle to add the Silver & Petal Pink Baker’s Twine. Add the Bunny Oval to the tufted layer on the card base. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the greeting. Complete the card by adding Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins and Basic Pearls to embellish the card.
Thanks you for stopping by! Check back on Wednesday to see another All About Easter project!

Since the card base is larger, a couple of cardstock layers fill the blank space. Tan and navy are a wonderful color combination. Therefore, Crumb Cake cardstock is sandwiched between the Night of Navy layers. Stamp the images from the Waterfront Stamp Set onto the Whisper White cardstock using a variety of classic stampin’ pad colors. Use a blender pen to soften any overlapping lines. The color selection for the card above includes Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Shaded Spruce, Early Espresso, Night of Navy, Balmy Blue and Crushed Curry. When stamping the center mountain with the Crumb Cake ink, stamp off the image onto a scrap paper once before stamping onto the card. Stamp the mountains on the left and right without stamping off.
Birthday Wishes is cut from Night of Navy cardstock using Well Written Framelits Dies. TIP: attach a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to the Night of Navy prior to cutting with the framelits. This makes it easy to add the sentiment to the card front.
The Waterfront Stamp Set is perfect for creating generic birthday cards and is my go to set for masculine themed cards. Order your supplies below under Project Materials.
Thanks for stopping by! See you on Friday with a new project idea.
The card today is another Celebrating Birthdays sample from the monthly class. It is a quick and simple card. Yet the use of the Country Floral Dynamic Texture Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF) creates a look of elegance. The Petal Pink and Whisper White color scheme provides a soft look. Another reminder, the Country Floral Dynamic TIEF is currently available for FREE during Sale-a-bration. (psst – here’s a secret: the embossing folder is carrying over in the new catalog out on June 3rd but why wait and pay for it when you can get it free with a $50 order through March 31)
Below are the materials and directions for recreating the card:
Petal Pink Cardstock: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ (scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base); 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ square (for circle)
Whisper White Cardstock: cut two: 4″ x 5-1/4″ (one for card front, one for interior); 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ square (for sentiment)
Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF)
Layering Circles Framelits
Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins
Petal Pink/Whisper White Variegated Ribbon
Clear Block Size D
Use the Country Floral Dynamic TIEF to texture emboss one 5-1/4″ x 4″ Whisper White cardstock. Attach to front of Petal Pink card base with adhesive.
Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Special Celebrations stamp set on the small Whisper White cardstock square. Cut circle using a Layering Circles Framelits Die.
Cut the Petal Pink cardstock square using the next size of Layering Circles Framelits.
Punch 2 sets of leaves from the Vellum cardstock using the Leaf Punch. Sandwich the leaves between the sentiment layer and the Petal Pink cardstock circle layer. Attach to the center of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Embellish by adding Petal Pink adhesive-backed sequins and a Petal Pink/Whisper White Variegated Ribbon bow to complete the card front.
Recently I was fortunate enough to celebrate another birthday. Below I am sharing the beautiful cards that were received by friends and fellow Stampin’ Up! creators. Thank you to Gloria, Maxine, Tyler, Beneta, Shelby, Jamie and Linda!!! I love all of the designs and the creativity of all. Don’t you agree that they are beautiful?
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend and be sure to do something creatively.

There are many wonderful techniques you can use with the Florentine Filigree stamp set. It’s almost like creating magic before your eyes. Bryan from Stampin’ Up! has some wonderful projects to show you exactly how you can use this stamp set. There are some wonderful sentiments to use for a variety of occasions.
Today’s project, Heart Embellished Mini Pizza Box, is a quick project that you can make for Valentine’s Day or for any time you want to share a little love with someone. The attendees in the latest class were able to recreate the heart embellished mini pizza box for themselves. The mini pizza boxes from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog are one of my favorite to use when giving a small gift or treat to family and friends. The ways to decorate are endless. The steps to recreate the box are below the project photo.
Assemble mini pizza box. Note – the shiny side is the box interior.
Use adhesive to attach the All My Love Designer Series Paper to tops and sides of mini pizza box.
Wrap the coordinating strip of Designer Series Paper around the box to create a belly band. Tip: wrap so that it paper meets on top of box – the embellishments will cover the seam.
Stamp “Just for You” on Whisper White Cardstock using Basic Gray stamp pad. Cut with the medium scallop heart die.
Cut the Lovely Lipstick cardstock. One large narrow heart die and one with the medium scallop heart die. Notice that the medium scallop heart die cuts both a heart and an open scalloped, stitched heart. You will use the open scalloped, stitched heart. (Save the small Lovely Lipstick heart for another project.)
Texture emboss the large Lovely Lipstick heart using the Subtle Dynamic Texture Impressions Embossing Folder.
Use the small heart die to cut the small floral heart from the All My Love Designer Series Paper.
Refer to photo for placement of the hearts. NOTE: Be sure that you only put adhesive on areas that will attach to the belly band.
The sentiment heart is attached using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Embellish with rhinestones and small Whisper White bow.
While grocery shopping, I saw individual packages of Pepperidge Farms Chessmen Cookies. The packages fit perfectly in the boxes!

Valentine’s Day is approaching so this elegant Valentine card featuring Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet makes a lovely card for giving to a special person. I am loving the products in the Sale-a-Bration brochure and the Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets are no exception. Remember, you can receive them for FREE with a $50 order. Once I saw the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets, I knew including them in the card design was a necessity. The Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder adds elegance to the Lovely Lipstick Foil. And WOW – what a dramatic change! You will see more projects from me using this embossing folder! Elements from both the Forever Lovely and Meant to Be Bundles complete the card. Details for creating the card are below the photo of the card.
Start with Lovely Lipstick cardstock: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Score at 4-1/4″ and fold on score line to create card.
Cut a piece of Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″. Use Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF) to add texture to the Lovely Lipstick Foil piece.
Use Lovely Lipstick Classic Stampin’ Pad to stamp the large flower from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set onto a 2″ x 2″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. Along the edge of this same cardstock, stamp two leaves from the stamp set using Soft Sea Foam Classic Stampin’ Pad. Cut the flower and leaves using the coordinating dies from the Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies.
On a scrap of Soft Sea Foam cardstock, cut one of the open leaf dies. Cut the small flowers with the die from a scrap of Lovely Lipstick cardstock.
Use the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies to cut a valentine heart from a piece of 2-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ Whisper White cardstock.
Stamp the Happy Valentine’s Day sentiment inside the heart using Lovely Lipstick Classic Stampin’ Pad. The sentiment is in the Meant to Be stamp set.
Attach the embossed Lovely Lipstick to the card base using snail adhesive.
Refer to photo on layering placement of flowers and leaves. Attach the large flower with a mini-dimensional and use mini-glue dots for other flowers and leaves.
Center heart onto the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet and attach using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Embellish small flower centers using small Pearl Basic Jewels.
Tie a small bow using Whisper White Baker’s Twine and adhere to heart above sentiment.
Even if you do not have the foil sheets, this card can easily be replicated using cardstock. The must have item is the Lace Dynamic TIEF which will add the elegance. Project Materials are listed at the bottom of this post. You can order directly by clicking on the item in the list.
