Aloha, all! Today I really needed to get back to making Easter cards - in fact, by the end of the day I will have finished all of the Easter cards I'll be demonstrating this week! Living in Hawaii, it takes a couple of extra days for mail to get to U. S. mainland addresses. So all have to go in the mail on Monday! … [Read more...] about More Masking for Easter!

Aloha, all! Here I am again with another Easter Card made with some of my favorite Stampin' Up! products. Have you noticed that most of the Stampin' Up! products I've brought up in my blog posts have, at one time or another, had the word, "favorite," applied to them? That's because I'm fickle at one time or another they all … [Read more...] about An Easter Bouquet!
Aloha, all! As I stood at my work table yesterday trying to decide what to use to make my next Easter Card, I thought, "Why not use the same stamp sets and just different papers?"! In fact, I not only used the same stamp sets for this card, I used the same Stamp-a-ma-jig technique, this time just lining up some little bunnies horizontally rather … [Read more...] about Same Stamp Sets, Different Card!
Aloha, all! All I was supposed to do for today's Stampin' Up! Only Challenge was to make an Easter card. Fun, huh? Stamp a bunny or an egg or some flowers or a religious theme, and the card's done, right? Not so in Robin's Craft Room where the first card of the Easter season was about to be stamped. … [Read more...] about My First Easter Card of the Season!
Aloha, all! I really did do more Easter Cards than I've posted, but this one, my last one made using the set, Everybunny, makes me smile every time I look at it. I made it for my youngest grandson who, with this two sisters, has a flock of egg-laying chickens. And they love those chickens! Now, granted, their chickens are … [Read more...] about Happy Easter!
Aloha, all! As long as I had the stamp set, Spring Sampler, out on my work table for yesterday's Stampin' Up! Only Challenge, I decided that I should use some of the Easter images in the set for my next set of Easter cards. I'm sending two of these to my older almost-teenage grandsons on the west coast Somehow I don't think that they'd … [Read more...] about Easter Sampler!
Aloha, all! This morning I finally finished all the Easter cards that will go to our grandchildren on the east coast so they'll go into the mail actually in time to get there before the holiday! Last week I made one card in an oval shape using the Ovals Collection Framelits Dies from the Stampin' Up! 2013 Spring Catalog. Today's … [Read more...] about Back to Easter, Everybunny!
Aloha, all! I was so very happy to see my favorite Easter Stamp set from last year - Everybunny - carry forward into the current Stampin' Up! Catalog. There are so many darling images in it, and I didn't get to use it nearly enough last year. So this year I'm starting early - and easy! Isn't thiis little girt bunny … [Read more...] about My First Easter Card of the Year!
Aloha, all! Once I started to work play with the Stampin' Up! stamp set, Everybunny, I just could not put it down - especially since it is nearly 90% an Easter stamp set! That is, 7 of the 8 stamps in the set are bunnies and chicks with an Easter theme. The 8th stamp - not entirely. Now that I think about it, I may have to go make a card with the … [Read more...] about Happy Easter, Everybunny!
Aloha, all! 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 … [Read more...] about This Really was a Stamp-a-Stack!
Aloha, all! I was bound and determined that Easter was not going to get by without my having made - AND SENT OUT! - Easter cards! Yes, I made lots of Valentine and St. Patty's Day cards. But most of them are still sitting in my stash of unsent greeting cards. I am very pleased to say that every Easter card I made this year has been put into the … [Read more...] about Cute Bunny for a Little Girl!
