Inspiration Week: Introducing Easter Wishes & That Sucks

Hello there!  Are you ready for our release tomorrow?  I'm super excited, but I'm also happy to have another day to put some finishing touches on tomorrow's sneak peek cards.  ;)

Today I'm showcasing two new sets.  Up first is a 4x6 stamp set called Easter Wishes.  These stamps coordinate well with the images from last year's A Good Egg set, but also work well all on their own.  It comes with a cross, 2 bunnies, 3 chicks, a sheep, 2 flower images and a handful of sentiments.  Some have been curved to fit on the cross and there is also a nice large sentiment that is perfect to use inside your cards.

Can you tell I have a thing for tulips?  This set comes with a cute little trio of tulips that will work well for so many scene building type cards.  I love to fussy cut so I cut them around the outside edge and then used a Copic marker to the color the inside portions to match my sponged background for a seamless look.  Don't worry... If you prefer dies we have those too.  ;)

For my second card I stacked all the critters to create a sweet little scene.  I then stamped some tone-on-tone clouds and grass using our Sunny Sentiments stamps.

For my next card I wanted the cross to take center stage, keeping the rest of the card super simple.  I paired it with a fun new die set that I will be sharing more of tomorrow.  ;)

Up next I turned to our Sunny Semi Circle dies to create an arched window for my scene with the baby chicks and lilies.

For my last Easter card I used the little chicks with the larger chick, Easter basket & Sentiment from A Good Egg.

For my next card I have a new little 2x3 stamp set called That Sucks.  My 10-year old daughter dreamed up the idea for a vacuum themed set when listening to Kelly Clarkson's "My Life Would Suck Without You" which I thought would be super cute for Valentine's Day.  It comes with a number of faces to add personality to the vacuum as well as another set of sentiments to expand it's versatility for other occasions.

For this card I created my chevron background using our Sunny Borders stamps and my MISTI to help me space them every 1/2".

For my second card with the set I cut my 4.25" card base using the largest heart from our Stitched Heart dies.  The coordinating That Sucks dies come with a bonus mini heart and "suck" word die in the extra space inside the vacuum that would have otherwise been empty wasted space.  

Here's a full look at the new Easter Wishes and That Sucks stamps and coordinating dies available for purchase early tomorrow morning in our online store.

  9. Such a cool variety of stamps in this release! I love the vacuum set and the easter set reminds me of the big easter egg hunt at Grandma's when we were kids. The adults would donate money and pocket change, then they wou;d mark different $ amounts on the eggs and after the egg hunt, we cashed in our eggs for the values marked. There was always on big prize $1 to us was a big prize! LOL! We didnt care if we got a big amount though - even some pocket change was a big deal! Ahhh such memories!

  11. Every single one of your cards is awesome! Your coloring is fabulous!
    We are a very traditional family for the holidays. This is the 3rd year now that the "next generation" has a holiday. So for Easter, we go to my cousin's house & have a traditional ham dinner. Buffet style because there are so many of us anymore. :-)

  26. LOVE these cute sets, and That Sucks is hilarious! I really like the faces you can add to the vacuum cleaner. As for Easter, we usually have our grown children and their families over, and always have an Easter egg hunt. We even did this when there were no youngsters around because everyone enjoyed it so much.

  31. Both of these sets are adorable! I especially love the "He is Risen!" sentiment in the Easter set. We usually have a big lunch with family after church on Easter Sunday, but I'm sure I will start more traditions once I have kids of my own.

  33. We always dye eggs and have an egg hunt for Easter. Because my kids are small, we only hide plastic eggs, in case they don't find them all. I fill the eggs with candy and small goodies like stickers...so they love that. The dyed eggs are usually eaten for breakfast or turned into egg salad sandwiches for me and their dad. These sets are so fun and I really love your Daughter's great idea for the That Sucks stamp set, lol!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I so love the That Sucks stamp set and dies. We don't have much family around so we don't do too much on Easter but I usually get some treats for the little ones in our neighbourhood.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh, goodness, the vacuum is just too dang cute! Love it! We fill plastic eggs for Easter since no one in our house likes the real ones. LOL!

  37. Such cute sets! We celebrate Easter with a challenging egg hunt (We use plastic eggs filled with coins, the teenagers don't want to give up this tradition) and then we have family time. This release looks amazing!

  39. My favorite thing about spring is that all the birds come back to splash in my bird bath, and all the flowers are in bloom!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Whoops, looks like I answered the wrong question this time! My favorite Easter tradition is making an easter basket for each of my grandchildren and having the family here for Easter dinner.

    ReplyDelete
  41. We don't really have any Easter Traditions now but when my sons were young and it was too wet for an egg hunt I used hide clues round the house that would finally tell them where their eggs were which took up a good hour or two, time enough for a coffee :D. Although I'm not religious I love the critters on the new Easter stamps they're so cute and the vacuum cleaners just make me smile, great idea from your daughter. x
