This card showed up on my Pinterest feed a few days ago and I had to chase it down to see exactly when it was I’d done ‘Easter stamping in Idaho’. Click here to view that post.
We made these cards just about two years ago from right now. And now I (we) actually live in Idaho, moving here in December 2019. I had some fun this morning re-creating this bright fresh card using a current stamp set, Painted Poppies. I stuck with the Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and Whisper White regular and thick card stocks. Sadly Stampin’ Up! is without a Big Shot at the moment but a new one will be coming along sometime after the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog comes out. In the meantime, use the die cutting machine that you have available to you. I’m definitely still using my Big Shot and I used the Layered Leaves 3-D Embossing Folder and the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies on the card front, cutting out the scalloped oval background layer and the Whisper White oval stamped layer.
I stamped the flowers using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored in the stems and flowers using the Stampin’ Blends mentioned in the previous paragraph.
The bling pieces are the Noble Peacock Rhinestones. Honestly I would have preferred to use the Glitter Enamel Dots but…..I haven’t yet located them post-move. I fear they’re in a box in the garage and that’s not a good thing!
Here are the specifics for today’s cards:
- Whisper White card front: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″
- Whisper White card stock: 4″ x 5-1/4″ : Layering Leaves 3-D Embossed Layer and next to largest plain Oval Framelit and 1-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ scrap for word/s (stamped using Old Olive classic ink)
- Daffodil Delight scrap, approximately 3″ x 4″, largest scalloped Oval Framelit
- Snail Adhesive for attaching the embossed layer to the card front
- Stampin’ Dimensionals for attaching the oval layers embossed layer
- Noble Peacock Rhinestones (three [always use an ODD number]) bling bits
- Optional 8″ piece of Mossy Meadow Linen Thread for a bow. Attach to card using a Mini Glue Dot that you’ve rolled a bit between your fingers to make it a tad smaller/narrower.
I neglected to mention above that I stamped the blossom and bud image on pieces of Whisper White card stock scraps using the same Memento Black ink and coloring with the same Stampin’ Blends. Then I fussy cut the image for each card using my Paper Snips and attached them over the larger oval layer using little dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
Which is your favorite? The one with the Mossy Meadow bow or the one without it?
