Lil' Lamb - here for Easter - here for many occasions!

The Stampin'Up! Easter Lamb stamp is one wood mounted stamp on page 24 of the 2016 Occasions catalog.  As you can see, the lamb has many more applications.  You can wipe any ink you get onto the "Happy Easter" sentiment and stamp the lamb alone.

The cardstocks I used for both cards are Perfect Plum and Smokey Slate.  Other card stocks used are:  Wild Wasabi and and Pink Pirouette on the top Easter card and Old Olive and Crushed Curry on the bottom Oh, Hello card.

Both lambs are embossed with White Embossing Powder.  Embossing folders are Happy Heart and a polka dot folder form my stash.  However, Decorative Dots on page 174 of the Annual Catalog is a great substitute for the polka dots.  The lamb is highlighted with the clear Wink of Stella pen.  Love the subtle glitter of the Wink of Stella.

The "OH, HELLO" sentiment is part of the FREE Sale-A-Bration set Honeycomb Happiness seen on page 15.  With every $50 of merchandise you purchase by March 31, 2016, you may choose an item from the Sale-A-Bration  catalog.  The cute chickie is part of this set, too.  To see my card using the chickie:

Do you want a balloon? They are FREE.....well, they were during 2016 Sale-A-Bration. I just might have an extra one to share, contact me.

I love rubber stamps!  I love baby animals!  I love FREE things!  So, just look at what happens when I have all three things together!  This cutie and his balloons are part of one of the Stampin'Up! FREE Sale-A-Brations (SAB) stamp sets.  See all of the set on page 15 of the SAB catalog.

Onto water color paper, I stamped this cutie and his balloons with the Black Archival Stampin' Pad (page 28, Occasions catalog) because it is a permanent ink and perfect for water coloring.  TIP:  Make a mask for the bird before adding the balloons with strings.

With my Aqua Painter I painted the chickie using Hello Honey Classic Stampin' Pad; the balloons with Tempting Turquoise and Tangerine Tango; the ribbons are Blackberry Bliss and Garden Green respectively.  I painted his beak and feet with Crumb Cake.  When the feet were dry, I added a swipe of the Tangerine Tango.

The balloons are decorated with the small flower and leaf stamps from the Blissful Bouquet Paper Pumpkin kit with corresponding ink.

Additional supplies used with this card:
8 1/2" x 5 1/2" Hello Honey card stock (CS), scored at 4 1/4"
4" x 5 1/4" Blackberry Bliss CS
3 3/4" x 5" water color paper
1" x 3" Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper (DSP)
Banner Triple Punch
Word Window Punch
scrap of Whisper White CS
Hello Life Stamp Set
Wink of Stella

TIP: I cut a mask to go around the outside of the balloons before I added the designs to that I could stamp part of the flower and/or leaf to appear as if it continues around the sides and back of the balloon.

I had so much fun with this chickie that I made another one with the colors from the SAB Wildflower Fields DSP to use it as the banner at the bottom of the card.  Because, as you know, I love that word FREE, so I have the DSP!!!  You can have some too, just click on the items below to order.  For every $50 of merchandise that you order between now and March 31, 2015 you can choose a SAB item for FREE!!!  If you want to choose the DSP, the number is 141022.  The Honeycomb Happiness stamp set is 141288 in wood and 141291 in clear.
