Easter Lamb, You are So Cute!

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.

Lamb cards 3

Aren't they just so cute!  I had so much fun making them.  Let's take a look at each one.

Lamb Easter card


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.

A Chick for Easter

I've been sharing 3D items I'm making for my booth at the emporium Shops on Main in downtown Conover, NC.  I'm happy to say that I have completed making my Easter items and I'm ahead of schedule.  I love when that happens! Now I can concentrate on upcoming classes.  Oh, yes, I do have classes that I hold in my home.  Let me know if you are interested.  But I digress.  Here's my chick for Easter.

ChickMy chick is made using the Pyramid Pals bundle.  I was not going to get this bundle.  I resisted, but I had to have it after seeing so many samples of items others had made.  Stamping is like that.  We all tempt each other.  Plus, I can always use 3D items for my booth.  Look at the video from Stampin' Up!


I used the Big Shot to cut out my chick in So Saffron.  You need to cut 2 of the base and two wings.  You will need one beak cut from Tangelo Twist, and the top head feathers cut from Real Red.  The video shows you how to put it together.  I stamped the eyes with Basic Black Archival ink and the triangle shapes with Soft Suede ink.  I used a sponge dauber to sponge around all of the surfaces for that finished look.  I used Tear & Tape to adhere the wings and the sides of the box.

The box holds a Tootsie Roll Pop.  I put the head feathers directly around the sucker stick so they would stick out of the top of the box.

I had to cut just a little off the top of the back of the box so there would be room for the stick to come out of the box.

I put the sucker inside the box and then adhered the back.  I did tape it permanently with the Tear & Tape since it would be in a store.  You wouldn't have to do that to give to a friend.  The only thing left to do is fluff out the head feathers.

Chick back

Here's what the back looks like.  And here's a picture of some of my chicks.

What's Up Doc? Or a Hershey Bunny

I'm still working on Easter treats.  Today I want to share with you a Hershey bar bunny.  I think he's really cute!  

Bunny Hershey bar 2

The basic cover for the Hershey bar is cut from Whisper White at 5 1/2 x 6.  It is scored on the 5 1/2 side at 1 3/4, 2, 4 1/4, and 4 1/2.  I use Tear & Tape down one side.  That way you can easily slide the candy bar from the wrapper without tearing it up.

The bunny ears were punched from the white using the XL Oval punch.  The inside of the ears were punched from retired paper from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack.  You could use the updated current paper stack just as well.  I love to sponge, so I sponged around both the outside and inside parts of the ear.  It just makes it pop from all of the other white.

Bunny Hershey bar feet

The feet are also punched  in white using the XL Oval punch.  The pads for the bottom of the feet are punched out of Blushing Bride.  I used the circle punch from the old retired Itty Bitty Punch pack.  Now, I told you that I like to sponge, but a lady has to have a limit.  I sponged around the feet, but I did not sponge around each of the pads for the feet.  I think it still looks good.  If you looked at my blog post about the mini coffee cup bunny, you saw that I made the pads of the feet with a pencil eraser and Blushing Bride ink.  I think that would work here as well and be a lot easier.  I made the Hershey bunny first.

Bunny Hershey bar faceThe eyes were punched from Basic Black cardstock using the same circle punch from the retired Itty Bitty Punch Pack.  The added a little gleam to the eyes using the white gel pen.  The cheeks were punched in white using the 3/4 inch circle punch and of course sponged in Blushing Bride.  I added a few little dots with the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker.  The tongue is another circle just like the pads of the feet.  I did sponge it.  The nose is the heart punch from the current Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  It is attached with a dimensional.  

I finished the bunny with a pretty bow using the Lost Lagoon Silky Taffeta Ribbon.  It is retired also, but the good news is that it is on the  Clearance Rack now for only $2.39.  It is such a pretty ribbon and ties so well.  You should stock up on it now.  You know Lost Lagoon will be retiring at the end of May.

I have one more Easter 3D item to share with you on Monday.  Hope to see you then, and thanks for visiting today.

Easter Lamb Mini Coffee Cup

On Monday, I posted an Easter bunny made with the mini coffee cups.  Today I'm showing you a little lamb also made with the mini coffee cup.  I found this on Pinterest, but I changed it just a little.

Once again, I used the Playful Pals stamp set from the Occasions catalog to stamp the mouth and the whiskers.  So easy!  I used the 1 3/4 inch Scallop Circle punch for the face of the lamb in Whisper White.  I sponged around it with Soft Suede ink.  The eyes are punched with the 1/4 inch  Circle punch and highlighted with the white gel pen.  I used a sponge dauber and Pink Pirouette to highlight the cheeks.  The nose is punched using the Owl Builder punch and Pink Pirouette.  The ears are punched out of Soft Suede cardstock using the smaller leaf of the Festive Flower Builder Punch.  I sponged around them with Soft Suede. The inside of the ear uses the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack and is punched with the same punch.  I used the small petals that are joined together and just clipped them apart.  They are sponged with Pink Pirouette.  I attached the ears behind the head.

Lamb coffee cup close upI finished off the face with a cute little bow using the Bermuda Bay 1/8 inch Stitched Ribbon.  I completely missed this in the catalog until a friend of mine used it.  It's on page 35 of the Occasions catalog.

The body of the lamb is punched from Whisper White cardstock using the 2 3/8 inch Scallop Circle punch and sponged in Soft Suede.  I made little feet using the Word Window punch in Basic Black cardstock.  I simply cut it in half for two feet.  I attached the head with dimensionals.  I attached the body to the cup using Tear & Tape adhesive.  So cute!

I wanted to make a little decoration for the lid.  I punched another 1 3/4 inch scallop circle out of white.  I stamped the sentiment using the Circle of Spring stamp set.  The little curly things come from the Playful Pals stamp set.  Once again, I sponged with Soft Suede.  I adhered this using dimensionals.

Lamb coffee cup topThese are ready to fill with Hershey kisses.  I hope they find their way to someone special.  Maybe the real Easter Bunny might choose to bring him to a special girl or boy.  Thanks for joining me today.  On Friday, I have another Easter treat for Shops on Main.  Please check back.
