The rain, sleet and snow finally stopped. Lot's of tree limbs down. You can still hear the tree's limbs clanking together as the wind blows. I hope it warms up soon before the wind takes even more limbs down. Come on Spring!!!
My blog post e-mails stopped going out to my subscribers on Feb.10th this year. It took a while to realize that this happened and then a while to get it fixed. Hopefully, you are all receiving my blog post e-mail in your mail boxes today!
All week long this week, I'm sharing the contents of the Easter Basket that I made for my Good Friend and Fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Kadie, as a door prize for her Down Line meeting.
Let's take a peek at the basket again that I've already posted and the fourth item:
Here's the Easter Basket again! I really hated to part with it! Can't wait to see who wins it!!!
I made 5 Easter Lamb cards using Stampin' Up's Easter Lamb Stamp Set with a sleeve around them using SU's Mossy Meadow Designer Series Paper.
Isn't that Lamb just too cute peeking out of the sleeve!!!
My cards are 3" x 3" which would be 3" x 6" scored and folded at 3". I used Stampin' Up's soon to be retiring 2014-2016 In Colors of Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow and Tangelo Twist for my card bases.
My card front panels are 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" of SU's Shimmery White Cardstock.
I stamped the Easter Lamb from SU's Easter Lamb Stamp Set in Black Memento Ink.
I used SU's Stampin' Write Markers to color in the Lambs and grass using Early Espresso, Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate for the lambs, Old Olive for the grass and Pink Pirourette for the face and ears.
I tied some of SU's Thick Baker's Twine (Retired - from last year's Sale-a-Bration) around the bottom of each front card panel and adhered it to the card bases with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I also tied bows and adhered them to each lamb using Mono-Multi Purpose Glue.
Now for the disappointing part! I forgot to take measurements of the sleeve before I mailed the basket out to Kadie. I think the piece of Mossy Meadow DSP was like 8" and I punched both ends with SU's OrnateTag Topper Punch.
I folded the sleeve around the cards and judged where my score lines should be. I slid the piece in my Stampin' Trimmer and cute each corner on an angle from the tip of the punched edge to the first score line.
Using my 3/8" SU Handheld Punch, I punched a hole in each end, threaded some of the Retired Thick Bakers Twine through each hole and tied it in a bow.
That's all I have for today. Have a great weekend and a Happy Easter!
I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges. My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit. I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but, Please be considerate of others creativity! Thank you!
