Seashore Stampers March Blog Hop-Easter



Hello everyone,

My fellow demonstrators have created an Easter themed card this month. I used the Welcome Easter stamp set from the 2020 Mini catalogue. The three characters are just so darned cute - a bunny, a chick and a lamb. What I love about them is that they lend themselves to be coloured however you want - blue, yellow, purple to make them whimsical looking or use natural colours as I did for this card.


You cannot help but smile at this adorable bunny. This is the stamp set:


These images are very easy to colour with any of our colouring products - Blends, Watercolor Pencils, Inks and Aqua Brushes.

And they are perfect for punching or die cutting to create embellishments on Easter treat packaging.

Here is a close up of the trio of punched circles.


From our Sparkly Glimmer Paper (item #and new So Very Vellum Specialty Designer Series Paper (item #152313, a free SAB item), I used the 1-3/8" circle punch, now retired, but you could use one of the Layering Circles dies (item #141705).

Notice that the Happy Easter greeting stamp is long. To create the greeting on the card, I coloured one word at a time using our Basic Black Stampin' Write marker and stamped one on top of the other. I then punched it with the same circle punch and mounted it with a dimensional.

I used the Floral Essence bundle (item #151055) from the Annual catalogue for the leaves.

And to create the whimsical frame, I simply hand-drew the lines with the Basic Black Stampin' Write marker (you could use a fine-tipped marker).

Oh, and I almost forgot about the flower. This was punched from the 12 x 12 Pleased As Punch designer series paper (item #143558) and the Small Bloom Punch, item #152316 (another free SAB item available along with a coordinating stamp set).

So there you have it! Enjoy the next blog in the hop and feel free to send us comments. We appreciate hearing from you.

  1. Great project, Erica! I love that tip about using the black marker to change the orientation of the stamp - will definitely try that! xo

    1. Yes, it's a good one and for those greeting stamps with multiple lines, you can use different colours.
