Stampin’ Up! Easter Friends for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are starting to make some plans. It’s warming up here a little, hopefully to stay this time.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Easter Blessings.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Easter Friends Cling Stamp Set along with the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper for my clean and simple card today. The Bunnies and colors were my inspiration from the photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #172.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of You’re A Peach DSP to a Balmy Blue card base. I stamped the bunny image from Easter Friends stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the gras image from the Easter Friends stamp set below the bunny in Pear Pizzazz Ink.

I cut the 3rd largest Scalloped Contours Die from a panel of Balmy Blue cardstock. I adhered the bunny image to the center using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. From a strip of You’re A Peach DSP I cut the eggs using the Birds & More Dies(retiring May 2). I adhered 1 using a Glue Dot and the others using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Balmy Blue cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Easter Friends stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the end of the sentiment strip using my Banner Pick A Punch. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Calypso Coral Artistry Blooms Adhesive Backed Sequins to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Easter Friends stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on a Basic Whtie panel. I stamped the grass image from Easter Friends stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink along the bottom of the panel. I adhered the eggs cut from the panel of You’re A Peach DSP using the Birds & More Dies along the bottom of the panel using Glue Dots. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Balmy Blue mat and then to the inside of the Balmy Blue card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of You’re A Peach DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! New Shipping Fees Beginning April 1

I want to let you know about a change to Stampin’ Up!’s shipping and handling pricing.  Starting April 1, the minimum shipping charge will increase by $1.00, from $6.95 to $7.95—or by one percentage point, from 10% to 11% of the total order amount—whichever is greater.

If you ever use the expedited shipping options, those fees are going up a bit too.  Here are the new fees for expedited shipping:

  • Next Day Upgrade: $38.00 USD ($3.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • 2nd Day Upgrade: $23.00 USD ($3.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • 3 Day Shipping Upgrade: $15.00 USD ($5.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • The expedited shipping option rates above are calculated in addition to the standard shipping rate (e.g., the next day shipping option would cost $7.95 USD or 11%—whichever is greater—plus $38.00 USD)

I want to make sure you’re aware of this change, as it impacts both you and me.  Stampin’ Up! has worked to keep the increase as minimal as possible so they can continue bringing you the unique, high-quality, and coordinated paper crafting products that you love.
