You’re Inspiring – Just for Easter!

I don’t know about you, but I am ready for Spring to arrive in Minnesota!   We just had another huge snowstorm with at least 10 inches of heavy, wet snow – it is a winter wonderland out there!  Besides snow blowing the driveway, I have had some time in my stamp room getting ready for the Rosemount High School Craft Fair this Saturday, March 10th from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.   I have bunnies jumping around all over my stamp room- LOL!

Like my nephew Nicholas always tells me – I am like the energizer bunny – always busy with something!  I have created stamping survival kits (you have to see them – so, so cute!), bunnies on pizza boxes, gift boxes with 3×3 note cards and a little chocolate too!  If you jump on over to my Facebook Page on Friday, I will have some of the items posted there.

Besides all the little gift ideas I have been making, I have been making cards too.  Here is one that I received as a swap from Kathy A.  – I just changed the greeting on it – its just the little things, isn’t it?


You're Inspiring stampin up


Card Stock

  • Very vanilla – cut one piece at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and fold in half for base of card
  • Tranquil tide – cut one piece at 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Daffodil delight – cut one piece at 3 3/4″ x 5″
  • Scraps of very vanilla


Step by Step Directions:


  1. Adhere the 4″ x 5 1/4″ Tranquil Tide card stock to the Very Vanilla – base of card.
  2. Stamp the string of daffodils along the bottom of the Daffodil Delight card stock using Tranquil Tide ink. Using the 2 5/8″ x 3 5/8″ oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits collection,  – put the framelit in the center of the daffodil delight card stock and run through the big shot – putting a hole in the center allowing the Tranquil Tide card stock to show through.
  3. Stamp the larger daffodils onto a larger scrap piece of very vanilla card stock and stamp using Tranquil Tide ink. Cut out using the 2 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ scallop oval framelit.  Attach to the center of the card by putting dimensionals on the back.
  4. Tie a bow into the 1/4″ double stitched daffodil delight ribbon and attach above the flowers as shown by using a mini glue dot.
  5. Stamp Happy Easter onto a scrap piece of very vanilla card stock and then punch out using the Everyday label punch. Cut off the 2 sides to create a long oval greeting.  Put 2 mini dimensionals on the back and attach to the bottom of the card as shown.
  6. Your card is finished!
