Easter Lamb, You are So Cute!
March 09, 2016
Have you seen the Easter lamb in the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog? It's just a must have. I have a trio of cards I want to share with you today using the Easter lamb.
Aren't they just so cute! I had so much fun making them. Let's take a look at each one.
This card is made from the Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. I made a lot of these. They'll be going to some of the shut-ins at church as well as some friends and family. The background of the card is stamped in Pool Party ink using the Timeless Textures stamp set. Next I have a 2 3/4 x 3 1/2 piece of the Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper from Sale-a-Bration. The Whisper White piece is cut at 2 1/4 x 3. The lamb is stamped in Basic Black Archival ink. I colored in the ears and face of the lamb with an Aqua Painter and Blushing Bride ink. I colored the grass in Pear Pizzazz ink. Using the Basic Black Stampin' Write marker, I colored in the hooves. I finished the look with a Blushing Bride flower punched with the Tree Builder punch and a pearl.
We will be making this card in my Clean & Simple class on Saturday. The card base is Soft Sky cardstock. There is a layer is Whisper White cut at 4 x 5 1/4. The patterned paper is from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack and is cut 3 3/4 x 5. The Pink Pirouette circle is punched with the 2 1/2 inch Circle punch. The lamb is stamped on Whisper White in Black Archival ink. First place a piece of tape over the words at the bottom of the stamp. Then ink up the stamp. You'll need to be sure to take the tape off before you stamp. Cut out the lamb using the Circles Collection Framelits.
I added pink to the cheeks and ears and Pear Pizzazz to the grass using the Aqua Painter. A white baker's twine bow finishes the look. The sentiment is from Suite Sayings and is stamped right on the patterned paper. The lamb is repeated on the inside complete with the saying at the bottom of the stamp.
This is the card we will make in my classes Thursday and Friday. The base is Thick Whisper White cardstock. There is a layer of Crumb Cake cardstock cut at 3 5/8 x 4 7/8. The patterned paper is from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack and is cut at 3 1/2 x 4 3/4. There is a strip of Everyday Chic Designer Series Paper cut 3/4 x 3 1/2.
The lamb is stamped on Crumb Cake using the Basic Black Archival ink. The face and ears are colored using the Aqua Painter in Blushing Bride. The grass is Pear Pizzazz. The spots on the lamb are colored using the gel pen. Cute! Top it off with a white baker's twine bow. The lamb is cut out using the Circles Collections Framelits. Half of a Tea Lace Doily is pleated behind the circle and then all is mounted using dimensionals. A banner is made for the top of the card using the words from the stamp.
So you can see three different ways to use this lamb, but of course I'm sure you can think of many more. It's an Easter go to stamp. Have you made your Easter cards? A list of supplies follow so you can order your supplies now.
