Even though Easter Lamb, one of the new stamps in Stampin’ Up!’s 2016 Occasions Catalog, might seem to be limited to Easter projects, this sweet lamb is really quite versatile. For today’s card, this lamb pops in to play “peek-a-boo” with a new baby girl. All decked out with a big pink bow, how adorable is she?
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Easter Lamb. I mean, really. How sweet is this little lamb? I heat embossed her on Basic Gray cardstock with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder before cropping her out with my Ovals Collection Framelits. By showcasing only her sweet face and part of her body, she really appears to be “peek”ing in to say hi. The pink bow adds that touch of sweetness that sends her over-the-top. I stamped the bow (from Bear Hugs stamp set) with Archival Basic Gray ink and snipped it out to get clean edges on the bow. How simple is that?
- Other Pieces Parts. For such a simple card, this project includes quite a few products – papers, punches, stamps sets and framelits dies. Each one of them plays quite an important part in the makeup of this card. I’ve created a diagram to walk you through each of the components – hope you like it.
- Sweet Colors. Since Blushing Bride is incorporated into a lot of the papers in the Occasions Catalog, I’ve been using a lot of that color lately. For this sweet card, though, I reached for the softer, grayer Pink Pirouette – I first shared this color combination on THIS POST. Blushing Bride pairs perfectly with browns, while Pink Pirouette pairs perfectly with grays. If you like this combination, too, feel free to save this:
Stamp Sets: Easter Lamb, Suite Sayings, Bear Hugs Papers: Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack, Basic Gray, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette Inks: Archival Basic Gray, VersaMark Accessories: White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Ovals Collection Framelits, Washi Label punch, Heat Tool, Stampin’ Dimensionals.
What do you think? Can you see how versatile this little lamb can be?
