Springtime Easter Blooms

I truly cannot wait for spring to arrive so here is a heaping spoonful of it times three with cards I created back in January using the new Easter Blooms stamp set.  For this first card I used the Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper for the background.  I also used one of the stamps from the Clearly for You stamp set for the backing on my beveled window pane and finished off my image with a small Vanilla Rosette.

Springtime Vintage Easter Blooms

And that is the new Rose Red Seam Binding Ribbon gathered across the middle of the card – so easy to do. How? Cut a length of ribbon 1-1/2 times the length of your card. Glue under the left side of the ribbon using a little monoadhesive. On the right side of your piece of ribbon start fraying the end and then grab one of the single strands from the center of your ribbon and start pulling slowly pushing the gathering towards the left side of your ribbon. Keep pulling until it is the length you need for your card. Set aside and then place a length of Sticky Strip across your card. Remove the pink backing and begin adhering your ribbon folding under the right side of the ribbon on the end to give a smooth finish on your card. I love making vintage cards!

Happy Easter!

The second card uses the new Textured Impressions Framed Tulip Embossing Folder. Love, love, love the way it frames out a card. So elegant!  The silhouette image of this little girl is so precious and easy to stamp. She is definitely all about the spring thing with her little basket of Easter eggs and bouguet of flowers skipping barefoot through the grass.
I once again used another stamp from the Clearly for You set (the small butterfly) to add a little something extra along with a few Basic Pearls.  Who wouldn’t want to receive a special card like this for Easter?

The third card uses the lovely branches from the Easter Blooms stamp set.  I wanted to show off all their beauty so I made a larger card at 5-1/4″x5-1/4″.  

Branching Out For You

I’m still getting used to all the new Stampin’ Up! color combinations and went of of the box on this one with Tangerine Tango and Pacific Point!   I added a Brights brad in Tempting Turquoise to one of the Filigree Brads to really add something special to the image of our little girl once again.  And I coudn’t resist adding a tiny Basic Pearl to her hair!

Here’s to hoping that Spring is right around the corner!

  1. I like them all, but the first is my favorite. I just love that designer paper!
    Wonderful cards, as usual!

    • Lynne, that is my favorite paper too!

  2. This stamp set is on my wishlist for Spring! These cards are gorgeous. My favorite is the second card with the bright yellow, white and green colors. I am also very fond of butterflies 🙂
