#SU! Raised Letter Technique

Easter Gift Card using Masking Technique
I finally got a chance to film a video using the Easter Bunny stamp set. This idea has been in my brain for a few weeks, but with travels and family visiting (thus using my stamp room) I just hadn't had the time to get it put together.
I hope you'll take a few minutes to watch. The idea of using the masking technique to place an easter egg behind the bunny's arms was just too fun. Now to go and help him hold a carrot. Just so much fun and I hope you'll try it out.
Here are the measurements:
Petal Pink cardstock: 4-1/4" x 11", scored along the 11" side at 2-3/4" & 5-1/2"
Basic White cardstock: 2 pieces, 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" (you'll cut each of these using the largest circle from the Stylish Shapes dies
Pear Pizzazz cardstock: scrap that measures at least 1" x 3" (you'll stamp and heat-emboss then cut using the small banner from the Something Fancy dies)

#SU! Simple Easel Fold Calendar
Each year I like to create and send a hand-stamped calendar to each of those on my Little Inkers team (those who've signed-up under me within Stampin' Up!). This year, I used a fun-fold I found from Tricia Butts, a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator. You can see her blog post here.
Here is what those calendars looked like:
However, with the New Year approaching quickly I'm hoping to be back in a regular routine of creating.
I recorded a video tutorial of a variation on this calendar, and I hope you'll check it out. Perhaps one of these will spark your own creativity.
Here's the video link:
Here are the project measurements:
Basic White cardstock: 2-1/2" x 3-1/4"; 2" x 3"; scraps for cloud die
Pool Party cardstock: (if using the pond water) scrap measuring about 2" x 3"
Mango Melody cardstock: (if using the sunset) scrap about 2-3/4" square
Old Olive cardstock: (for the grass) scrap about 1" x 2"
If you don't currently have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I'd love to be yours! You can order from my Stampin' Up! website 24/7. Ordering any of the supplies used to make this project can be done by clicking on the photos below.
