Here is the first card:
We stamped the Blessed Easter stamp (133212, $11.95) with Black StazOn Ink onto our water color paper. Next, we used Aqua Painters to apply color to the leaves and tulips. We used Pear Pizzazz for the leaves and stems. The tulips were colored with a base of So Saffron, then highlighted with Crisp Cantaloupe. I love water coloring.....it is so relaxing!
Our second card was based on a card by fellow demonstrator Karen Gibson. Thanks, Karen!

I used the fun, new Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (132187, $7.95) for the background. The "hey there!" stamp is from the Just Sayin' stamp set. The coordinating Word Bubbles framelits make it easy-peasy to cut it out with your Big Shot machine. You can purchase both products together in a bundle and save 15%! Just use catalog number 134819 for Wood Mount ($43.95) or catalog number 134820 for Clear Mount ($37.25).
The cute bunny was cut out with our Ovals Collection Framelits. I used the exclusive Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper, Sweet Sorbet, for the bunny's ears and nose as well as the word bubble above his head. You can earn the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper with a $50 order (before tax & shipping) until the end of Sale-A-Bration on March 31, 2014. Hurry and place your qualifying order at http://nancyamato.stampinup.net before it's too late!
The next project is a cute Easter bunny basket. How cute is this little girl?
Once again, we used our Ovals Collection framelits to make this cutie! Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper was once again used for the egg and the bunny ears. Plus, we used the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (another fun Sale-A-Bration item you can earn!) to give our little honey bunny some texture. Our Petite Purse die forms the basket on the back of the bunny. Of course, we had a little chocolate to tuck inside (and nibble on!).
The final project is perfect for co-workers, neighbors, classmates -- anyone you want to give a little sweet treat to!
I hope you get inspired to create some fun projects for Easter. If you are local to the Baltimore area, this is a sample of the types of projects we make at my classes. Check out my Calendar of Events at http://nancyamato.stampinup.net for more details. I hope to stamp with you soon!
