Springtime Foil Easter Card

Handmade Easter Card

Hello Friends,

Happy Friday!  Can you believe that Easter is a mere 3 weeks away?  My new Springtime Foil paper was calling out to me, so I thought that I would make an Easter Card with the Springtime Foil Paper.  This paper is lovely beyond words and it is so fun to color.  

Cross of Hope Stampin' Up!

Other Card Details

Since it's an Easter Card, I thought that the cross and the  banner dies from the Cross of Hope Framelits Dies would work well.  The "Happy Easter" stamp is from the You're Inspiring stamp set that we used on yesterday's stack of cards.  I cut a Peekaboo Peach Stitched Shapes Circle to back the whole thing.  Just for fun I added an Old Olive Scallop Edge along the bottom of my Springtime Foil Paper.   I used a die from the Popcorn Box dies to make my scallops.

Coloring on Springtime Foil Paper

I'm having so, so much fun coloring on the Springtime Foil Paper.  Would you like to see a new coloring and blending video?


Stampin' Blends Potential Backorder

 Over the last couple of months, Stampin' Up! has seen a dramatic increase in the sales of Stampin’ Blends, which is wonderful—we're using them and loving them!

Unfortunately, the quick increase in sales, along with a long lead time from our supplier in China, and the temporary shutdown of all factories in China for the government-mandated Chinese New Year holiday, has created a perfect storm for backorders. In the next coming weeks, Stampin' Up! anticipates that approximately 14 of our current 27-color Stampin’ Blends collection will go on backorder until the end of April.

  • Bermuda Bay (Light and Dark)
  • Bronze
  • Calypso Coral (Dark)
  • Crumb Cake (Light and Dark)
  • Ivory
  • Pink Pirouette (Light and Dark)
  • Pool Party (Light and Dark – currently on backorder)
  • Pumpkin Pie (Dark)
  • Smoky Slate (Light and Dark)

If you have been thinking about purchasing some Stampin' Blends, now's the time.  Get Your Blends before they go on backorder.
