Stretch Your Easter Stamps

 Holiday themed stamps are great, and they fill a need. But I love to get more out of them. Here is how I am getting more out of these Easter themed stamps.

These stamps work great for baby and encouragement cards. Only slight changes in pairings of products and uses of sentiments can be all it takes. 


Here is a video showing how both of these cards were created.

This happy little gnome could be a gnome bunny, or he could just have a bow tied in the top of his hat!

And in the stamp set, you have the option of the gnome holding an Easter egg, or a sweet little chick.

Add an appropriate sentiment, and there you go!

How about an encouragement card? Or just a silly one! This little chick is perfect, especially for all of my poultry obsessed friends!

This card started out as me just playing with the Slimline Chicks stamp set. I stamped it in Ink On 3 Bee Sting Yellow ink, then decided to heat emboss it with clear embossing powder. And it sat on my desk for a couple weeks. Then I decided to do some ink blending. 

And I had colored this chick, and added that fun speckling to the egg with Copics.

The sentiments included in the set are a great mix of themes, and this one really tickled me. 

I also decided to use all of the sizes of the Bauble embellishments here. How fun is that?!

Use those leftover pieces of your backgrounds to spice up the insides of your cards! I love that this sentiment and the images were a natural 2 part statement.  That chick sure makes me smile!

Are you ready to look at your holiday stamps with a fresh eye? I sure hope so!
