As I shared with you yesterday, I held a Stamp-a-Stack just for myself earlier this week in an effort to make AND send out a nice number of Easter Cards. In a Stamp-a-Stack, at least the way I do them, I have two or three basic layouts and papers and card stock cut to the size of a sketch that I've made for myself. Then I stamp and mix and match the colors of the papers and card stock with Stampin' Up! inks.
Here are three of the ten cards that I made with today's layout. All of them use stamps from the Stampin' Up! Stamp Set, Everybunny. I just love this little bunny up in his Hot Egg Balloon throwing Easter flowers down to us all. Fun image! The basic idea for this layout came from a much more detailed and carefully constructed card by fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Mary Jo Price-Williams. I would love to have CASEd her card completely, but I just didn't have the time – or the energy! – to get that detailed!
As you can see, each card, though it has the same layout, has different colors highlighted. The only thing that's the same throughout is the Poppy Parade that I used for the mats for all three of the layered sections. The other colors are the same colors as I showed off in yesterday's card – Peach Parfait, So Saffron and Wild Wasabi. And all of the Designer Series Papers are from the same paper set that I used yesterday, Just Add Cake. The result of using different colors and papers for the same basic layout keeps the whole project from being too boring (and I get bored easily!).
The only "embellishment" that I used for these cards is the texturizing with the Perfect Polka Dots Sizzix Embossing Folder. These slip right into Stampin' Up!'s Medium Envelopes, and definitely require NO extra postage, as might a card with too many brads and ribbons.
