The versatility of a stamp set is important when I’m deciding whether to purchase and design with. The Welcome Easter Stamp Set in the Jan-Jun 2020 Mini Catalog is so adorable AND with the variety of sentiments to boot I just couldn’t resist it. I created a trio of Easter Cards, but with the variety of sentiments you could make baby as well as something for a friend. Today’s post is my Welcome Easter Stamp Set Trio of designs.
Each of these designs I made for Easter so I would have something fun and cute to send to loved ones. I was inspired to CASE (copy and selectively edit) Martin Stone’s super simple and clean designs. I did change the card base colors to coordinate with the Sale-a-bration So Very Embossed Vellum Pack (Purple Posy, Soft Sea Foam and Pool Party).
First, the lamb was easy to color minimally. I used Smoky Slate Blends light and a touch of dark. I also used Light Petal Pink Blends for the face and hooves. The slim band is Purple Posy sponged with Purple Posy ink. I cut away 1″ from the right front, then sponged the edge and adhered it just so it peeked out.
Next is the adorable bunny. I colored him minimally as well with Gray Granite Blends dark and light and Petal Pink Blends light. All three images I fussy cut and popped with dimensionals to add dimension. The Vellum strips were cut from the Sale-a-bration So Very Embossed Vellum package. TIP: Surprisingly I was able to use a wee bit of Multipurpose Liquid Glue to place the vellum. YES! Don’t use too much, just a light squiggle of lines.
Finally, this cute chick took the most coloring, but still wasn’t fully colored. I wanted to keep the coloring minimal. I used Daffodil Delight Blends Dark & Light for the body, and Pumpkin Pie Blends Light for the beak and feet. All the designs I white embossed the sentiment to add a needed bit of shine.
These cute animals make great Easter designs and by changing up the sentiment makes them versatile for a variety of uses. The sponged narrow band and embossed vellum gives great tone on tone effect. AND heat embossing the sentiment add that all important bit of shine.
