Yes, sometimes there are really stamp sets (and coordinating framelits!) that I don’t think I need. I know you’re confused….I usually love everything and have to have everything but Backyard Basics just didn’t do it for me. I saw no reason that I needed a bee stamp, another flower stamp, another butterfly stamp, a bird stamp or an egg stamp for heavens sake! Who stamps an egg?!
Well, I didn’t stamp an egg but I sure do love the egg framelit! Woo Hoo! Once I saw this card online I knew I was going to end up purchasing the Backyard Framelits….and if you’re going to have the framelits you really need the stamp set! 🙂 Anyway, a girl has to have an Easter Egg! Don’t worry….I’ll show you another card using this stamp set in a few days. I am getting my money’s worth! 🙂
This was a quick and adorable card that we made in classes last week. Stamp the sentiment (from Delightful Dozen) on the Whisper White card stock and then run it through the Big Shot with my new favorite Embossing Folder, Decorative Dots. You have to do your stamping first or it’s really hard to get a clean image with all those dots in the way! Ha!
Die cut two eggs with the (now) fabulous Backyard Framelits, cut some grass with your Stampin’ Up! Fringe Scissors and you have an adorable card for Easter! Have you played with the Fringe Scissors? They’re pretty neat. One of these days I’ll have to show you how to make a really cool flower using them.
If you’re wondering about the pretty designer paper I used, don’t. You missed it. It was the Sweet Sorbet Designer Paper from Sale-a-bration which ended Monday. I hope you got a package if you wanted one. There were some beautiful designs in it.
Have a great day! Take care and Happy Stamping!
