Welcome Easter, Hoot Hoot Hooray, Baby Card, 2020 Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog

The new "Welcome Easter" set is fun to play with. I did make one Easter card and the other cards I've made with this set have been baby cards.  What a fun set and you know I love versatile sets.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  

On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Balmy Blue. I taped that piece to the card base.

Then I cut a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White for the front.

I stamped and die cut the sheep.  I colored it in using my Blends pens. I used light Smoky Slate, light Balmy Blue, Light and Dark Crumb Cake and Dark Basic Black.

I set the lamb on top of my piece to see where I was going to do my sponging.  I found the center area where the lamb was to be set and I started sponging with Balmy Blue.  Every time I inked up the sponge, I started in the very center where the lamb would hide it. I didn't want to just start where I left off or it would be too dark and hard to get blended in.

I also sponged a thick line where I was going to put the words.  I taped this piece on top of the Balmy Blue piece.

The words are from the "Hoot Hoot Hooray" set. I masked off the teddy bear on a rocking horse so I could just stamp the words.  I punched them out using the "Classic Label" punch.

I set the lamb and the words in place using Dimensionals and the card was done.

This was a fun and easy card to make.  I SO love sponging and how it can really make an image on a card pop.

Thank you ever SO much for taking the time to visit today. I hope you are all well and safe,

What a neat idea, Wanda, to begin sponging in the center. Great tip! Thank you.
