I purchased a few products from Simon Says Stamp with the sole purpose of making Easter cards. Because I knew I was going to make so many I wanted to limit my supplies to a few stamp and die sets. Every single card is different! I spent 2 days making them and really enjoyed the process.
I did not video the complete card making process. I did make a video after I was finished and, in the video, I do explain what I did.
I used backgrounds that I had already created for quite a few of these cards. Do you do that as well? Create backgrounds to use later?
I kept the cardstock colors to pastels.
I used the following products:
I also used stencils (I will list which ones below), Nuvo Glimmer Paste (moonstone), various colors of cardstock (listed below each card), and envelopes from Either Simon Says Stamp or Gina K Designs
For the lavender card: Simon Says Stamp ‘Daisy Bouquet’ stencil, MFT Stamps Grapesicle Cardstock.
For the neutral card: Heffy Doodle ‘Ring a Rosies’ stencil and MFT Stamps In the Buff cardstock.
For the blue card: Heffy Doodle ‘Ring a Rosies’ stencil and MFT Stamps Blue breeze card stock.
For the blue card: I stamped the ‘You Are’ background die onto MFT Blue Breeze cardstock. I used the same cardstock and covered it with Distress Oxide ink and put water splatters on it. The crocus dies are inlaid into the background.
For the pink card: I stamped the ‘You Are’ onto white card stock and onto MFT Stamps Tickled Pink Cardstock. I cut the crocus out of the pink and glue them to the top of the white background.
For the card on the left: That background was from my stash. It is an embossed resist technique, meaning I embossed a design onto a piece of white cardstock and then put Distress Inks on top. I cut the crocus dies out of the card front. It opens to reveal the crocus flowers inside. The cardstock is The Stamp Market Bubblegum.
For the card on the right: I stamped the ‘You Are’ background stamp onto The Stamp Market Bubble gum Cardstock. I adhered the border from the card on the left onto the top of the background.
For the lavender card: this is the same card as the top image.
For the blue card: The background was from my stash. It is an embossed resist technique, meaning I embossed a design onto a piece of white cardstock and then put Distress Inks on top. The cross inlay was from my stash too – it is alchohol inks.
Both of these backgrounds were from my stash. I colored Yupo paper with Alcohol Inks. After they were dry I embossed them with embossing folders. I took a sanding block and sanded the high spots (card on the left only). The cardstock on the right is Gina K Designs Peach Bellini. On the right I used Gina K Designs Coral Reef
The background is a watercolor wash. I added the text with the ‘You Are’ stamp
Another embosses resits background. I cut a vellum circle to place behind the sentiment. The cardstock is Gina K Designs Peach Bellini.
The pink cardstock is MFT Stamps Tickled Pink. The blue is MFT Stamps Blue Breeze
I stamped ‘Easter Blessings’ on all of my envelopes. The cardstock is MFT Stamps Grape Jelly.
I used MFT Stamps ‘Roses All Over’ 6×6 paper. I stamped it with the ‘You Are’ background stamp
The card stock is MFT Stamps In the Buff. The stencil is Echo Park ‘Splash’.
The mint cardstock is Simon Says Stamp Mint. Top left – Simon Says Stamp ‘Daisy Bouquet’ stencil. Top right and bottom left – Altenew ‘Feeling Dotty’ stencil. Bottom right – Simon Says Stamp ‘Circularl lace’ stencil.
And that is all for today – make some Easter cards – they are so so fun!
