Happy Saturday friends! Hope you are all doing well and are safe. To go along with the cards in my previous post using the Hello Easter stampset from Simon Says Stamp, I decided to make some multimedia tags. I also dug up some items from my stash that I forgot I had (yeah that’s how old they are. LOL, Anyone else have this problem?) to use on the tags.
I colored them with COPICS. I used C000, C1, and 0 for the bunny and R81 and R85 for its ears; Y06, Y13 and Y18 for the bunny’s bow; YG06, YG07, and YG09, YR07 and YR16 for the egg the bunny holds; YR07, YR16 and R29 for one tulip; BG01, BG02, and BG05 for the second tulip; Y06, Y13 and Y18 for the daffodils and YG06, YG07, and YG09 for the stems; and Y00, Y06, and Y21 for the basket, V04, V06 and V09, YR07, YR16 and R29, BG01, BG02, and BG05 for the eggs inside the basket, R29 and R32 for the basket bow. Once I finished coloring the images, I fussycut them all out.
I colored them with COPICS. I used Y06, Y13 and Y18 for the ducky body, YR07 and YR16 for the feet and beak and R81 for the cheeks, V04, V06 and V09 for the bow; R32, R37 and R29 for the umbrella and V04, V06 and V09 for the umbrella bow; Y06, Y13 and Y18, YR07 and YR16 for the medallion; R81 and R85, BG000, BG01 and BG02 for the large egg, and YR07, YR16 and R29 for the egg’s bow. Once I finished coloring the images, I fussycut them all out.
Happy Friday friends! Hope you are all doing well and are safe. With Easter right around the corner, I’m sharing some more super easy cards. These were made easy using the Simon Says Stamp’s Faberge Egg Dies.
I diecut out the Faberge Egg Dies from Stampin’ Up! Shimmer Paper in Mint Macaron and Sweet Sugarplum (these are no longer available but Simon Says Stamp has tons of glitter papers). Next, I diecut two pieces of Simon Says Stamp VELLUM using the outer Faberge Egg die. This will go behind the front decorative egg. I also diecut two different pattern papers with the same die. I chose one from My Favorite Things Plaid Patterns Merry & Bright Paper Pad and one front an older Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Rainbow 6 x 6 Paper Pad (no longer available I think).
On the inside of the card, I cut down a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 4-1/ x 5-1/2” and adhered it to the inside of the card base and added a strip of the same plaid pattern paper, measuring 3/4 x 4” to the bottom of the white panel.
Thanks for reading this post. I hope you enjoyed and I’ve inspired you to give these cards a try for yourself. They are super quick and fun to make! Have a great Easter! Leave comments or questions below or feel free to email.
Happy Monday friends! Easter is fast approaching and even though we may not gather with all our families this year, we can still share happy sentiments with our loved ones by sending cards and gifts. We are going to have to get creative this year folks! Maybe instead of a community Easter Egg Hunt, try one in your back yard or inside your house. Decorate some cookies with your kids. For thedr two cards I used the very cute Hello Easter stampset from Simon Says Stamp. I like that the images are nice and big so they are easy to color and fill up more space on a card.
I stamped the ducky, large Easter egg, and the chickadee with 3 eggs from all the images I needed from Hello Easter stampset from Simon Says Stamp and the two eggs from SSS Some Bunny (not available anymore I believe) with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″. Once dried, I colored the images with COPIC markers. I used BG000 + 0 Blender for mini eggs and YG05 + YG07 for the grass; Y06 and Y18 for the both chicks; RV000 + RV11 for the chick’s bow; YR12 + YR16 for the chock beaks and feet; V06 + V09 for the umbrella top and BV08 + V09 for the umbrella underside, YR12 +YR07 + YR16 for the umbrella bow; Y06 + Y18 for the umbrella medallion; RV09 + RV14 + RV19 for the large egg, BG000 + BG01 + BG02 for the egg’s stripes and Y06 + Y18 for the egg’s bow; YR12 + YR16 and V06 + V09 for the small polka egg; and RV000 + RV11 and BG000 + BG01 for the small stripe egg. I fussycut the images out and adhered them to the card. I added 3M Foam Tape behind the images that hung over the edge of the grass.
Spring is officially here friends! And when I think of Spring, I think of beautiful flowers in bloom and soft pastel colors. And this Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp is perfect for spring cards, as well as Easter cards and even Mother’s Day cards! And can we talk about the purple glitter paper included in this kit?!? OMG, just gorgeous.
