Easter 2019 cards

Last week was a busy one for me.  I played bridge one day, went out for lunch, played Hand and Food, and had Stamp Club.  I'll be sharing the club cards later this week.

It's time to be thinking about your Easter cards.  Easter is April 21st this year.  If you are like me and like to wait until the last minute to make your cards and they end up going in the mail late, you might want to get a start on them now!  I hope to send my cards out early this year!!  I don't have many Easter stamps but I thought this lily would fit the bill.  What do you think?

I used the Gingham Gala designer paper (6"x6") for the background.  I stamped the lilies with Balmy Blue ink and the leaves with Granny Apple Green.  The ribbon was on back order but Stampin' Up got it back in stock a couple of weeks ago.  It is a Sale-a-Bration item.  I punched 2 holes on either side of the lily stems and threaded my ribbon through them and made a bow.  After stamping the image, I die cut it out using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits.  The sentiment is from a retired Stampin' Up set and I fussy cut it.

Here is another Lasting Lily card.  This time I stamped the flowers in Grapefruit Grove and Crushed Curry.  I used a sponge dauber to ink a little bit of the Grapefruit Grove onto the Crushed Curry flower and vice versa before stamping them.  This time I fussy cut each flower out and arranged them on the Whisper White card (with a 1 1/2" strip of Gingham Gala DSP on the side.)  The bow is from Wishing You Well stamp set.

Lasting Lily Sale-a-Bration stamp

I don't care for gardening, but I do love pretty flowers!  I don't have any of these lilies in my yard but I did when I lived in Washington state.  They are so pretty!  This is a Sale-a-Bration stamp that you can get for free with a $100 order.  Lasting Lily is a Distinktive stamp meaning there's lots of detail in the stamp; it does all the work for you.  I won't lie to you - I had a few challenges getting a good impression that showed the beauty of the stamp but I finally "got it."


  • Lightly tap the ink to the stamp versus putting the stamp to the ink.
  • OR apply the ink using a sponge dauber.
  • The images will vary depending on the "jucieness" of your ink pad.
  • I found that darker colors worked best on this stamp to show the detail.
Remember - in God's garden, no two flowers are alike - so make your garden your own!  

I stamped this lily with Coastal Cabana and the leaves with Granny Apple Green.  I took my colors directly from the ribbon that I wanted to use.  I love this Reversible Ribbon!  I embossed the Coastal Cabana piece with the Tufted embossing folder.

These lilies were stamped with Berry Burst.  After stamping the lilies and the stems (Pear Pizzaz), I took a pencil and lightly drew a rectangle.  I filled in the rectangle with my Black SU Marker.  The finishing touch is the silver edged ribbon adhered with a few glue dots.

This stamp set, Lasting Lily, can be found on the last page of the Sale-a-Bration catalog.  With the Sale-a-Bration Second Release of products, you can get the framelits that go with this stamp set.

SAB - Lasting Lily

This beautiful stamp set is one that you can get for FREE!!  It is a Sale-a-Bration set and you can find it on the very last page of the catalog.  The only way you can get this stamp is by placing a $100 order from the Annual Catalog or the Occasions Catalog.  The sentiments in this set are  really nice - from sympathy to well wishes.   Plus there is a "splatter" stamp in the set which I always like to use to add a bit of color to a card.  The Stampin' Up! Lasting Lily stamp set is a Distinktive style stamp set.  That means it uses the special technology patented by Stampin' Up! to make the stamp look like it has been stamped two or three time to create realistic shading.

For this first card I stamped the lily with VersaMark ink and embossed it with white embossing powder.  Make sure when you use embossing powder that you rub the Embossing Buddy over the cardstock first - especially with black cardstock!!  I colored over the white embossed area with SU Blends - pink and green.  I used the new Stitched Rectangle Framelits for the sentiment.

The beautiful purple lily was stamped with Highland Heather ink.  At the bottom is a small piece of the Gingham Designer Paper and a small scallop piece of cardstock die cut with a die from Be Mine Stitched Framelits.

This last card was stamped with Flirty Flamingo.  The ribbon is retired.  I used the "splatter" stamp on the card with Pool Party ink.  March 1 Stampin' Up! will add additional Sale-a-Bration items.  One of the items are dies to coordinate with the Lasting Lily set.
