Stampin’ Up!® Springtime Joy Pop-Up Easter Card

Hello and Welcome to Fun Fold Friday! Today I have a Springtime Joy Pop-Up Easter Card using the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series paper. Thank you to Jana Muller of Jana’s Paperdreams for the pop-up card idea!

This fun Easter pop-up card is actually fairly simple to make. I made about 20 of them to sell at a Bazaar I did last weekend. I also sent one to each of my siblings.


Measurements: Gorgeous Grape Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper (DSP): 4 x 5 1/4 inches; Basic White CS: 1 7/8 x 2 3/4 inch oval die-cut (from the Layering Ovals Dies) and 4 x 5 1/4 inches (not pictured); Gorgeous Grape CS: 3 x 4 inches scored at 1, 2 and 3 inches and 3/4 x 2 1/4 inches with a score line at 1 1/4 inches.


Using the Gorgeous Grape ink stamp the sentiment “Easter is a lovely reminder of new beginnings” toward the bottom of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS.

Stamp whichever critter you like in the Memento ink and color with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. For this card I ended up using the cute sheep and the basket of eggs. The colors of Stampin’ Blends for the sheep are Gray Granite and Smoky Slate. The flowers are colored in Highland Heather, Melon Mambo, Just Jade and Daffodil Delight. I colored the Easter basket with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede and used Petal Pink, Purple Posy, Balmy Blue and So Saffron for the Easter eggs.

Assembling the Card

Adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Hydrangea Hill DSP to the front of the Gorgeous Grape CS card base by applying the adhesive ONLY to the outer edge.

The next step is to use the Stitched Shapes Die Cuts and cut out the center of the card front. We will not be using the DSP oval for this card. We will be using the Gorgeous Grape CS stitched oval.

Use the Bone Folder to make a crisp fold at the 4 1/4 inch score line on the Gorgeous Grape CS card base. Open the card and adhere the Basic White CS sentiment card piece to the inside.

Assembling the Pop Up

Use the Bone Folder to make a crisp fold at the 1, 2 nd 3 inch score lines on the 3 x 4 inch Gorgeous Grape CS. Fold in half with the open end on top.

Apply a strong adhesive to the upper 1/4, turn the card piece around and adhere to the center of the inside of the card. The open ends should be on top.

Apply a strip of adhesive to the upper edge of the folded 3 x 4 inch Gorgeous Grape CS and then close the card to adhere it.

When you open the card it should look like this. This is the pop-up box for your sheep.

Fold the 3/4 x 2 1/4 inch Gorgeous Grape CS card piece at the 1 1/4 inch score line. The lengths will be uneven. Apply adhesive to the top portion of the longer side.

Turn the card piece over and adhere it to the center of the Pop-up box.

Adhere the Basic White CS oval to the Gorgeous Grape CS stitched oval. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sheep and the Easter basket to the oval.

Apply adhesive to the tab and press the stitched oval card piece into place. Hold until secure.

Viola! You have just created a cute pop-up Easter card!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you give this a try. The first time may be a little challenging, but then it is a breeze!

Sorry I missed a few days this week. I was more busy than I expected for the craft bazaar I did with my friends Amanda and Christy. And I was totally exhausted afterward! I just needed a few days to recover. Bazaars are a lot of work!

Have a great weekend and a Blessed Easter!

Stampin’ Up!® Springtime Joy- Stamping with Coloring & Masking

Hello and Happy Spring! I am fortunate to have some flowers starting to bloom in my garden outside! Springtime Joy is a stamp set with super cute animals to help welcome spring and Easter. Today’s card is a step up from Simple Stamping, and is simple nonetheless.


Measurements: Basic White Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; Gorgeous Grape CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches; and Basic White CS: 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 inches.


Start off stamping the sentiment “Welcome Spring” in Memento Black ink onto the 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 inch Basic White CS. Add the little butterfly.

The next step is to stamp the cute little bunny onto both the 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 inch Basic White CS and a piece of full sticky sheet.

Carefully fussy cut the bunny on the full sticky note. This will be used as a mask.

Sponging Around the Mask

Using a Stamping Sponge that has been cut into a small wedge, dab the sponge first on the Balmy Blue ink. Then rub in small circles on a scrap sheet of paper. Next Sponge some onto the card around the little bunny. Do the same with the Granny Apple Green ink. (For more information on Sponging check out this blog post: Sponging.)

Tip: I find it to be very easy to remove the mask by using the Take Your Pick tool.

Finishing the Card

The sponging helps to accentuate the bunny. Again using the Memento Black ink, stamp some of the flowers and tulips around the bunny.

Use whatever you like to color the card. I really enjoy using the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. The colors I used were: Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Magenta Madness, Highland Heather and Balmy Blue.

First adhere the stamped Basic White CS card piece to the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Gorgeous Grape CS. Use the Bone Folder to make a crisp fold at the 4 1/4 inch score line on the Basic White CS card base. Adhere the Gorgeous Grape CS card piece to the front of the Basic White CS card base.

Viola! You have a super cute bunny to help welcome in the Spring!

Thanks for coming by today. I am still recovering from receiving a COVID-19 vaccination. Although I am grateful for the vaccine, I have been feeling very tired since receiving it. Each day I feel better. I am going to resume the Wacky Wednesday Technique blog next week. I am planning on having something for Fun Fold Friday. See you then!

Have a most wonderful week!

Welcome Easter Cute Bunny

Hello and Good Day! I hope you amazing people are doing well and hanging in there with all the social distancing and self quarantine. It is really different. Easter will be very different as I will be “going” to mass online. Not the usual pretty dress, and new shirt and tie affair I am used too.

This is a cute Easter card with Springtime colors. It is very simple to make using the Welcome Easter stamp set in the Stampin’ UP! Mini Catalog.

Measurements: Card Base is Petal Pink card stock (CS): 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score mark at 4 1/4 inches; Whisper White CS: 4 1/2 x 3 1/4 inches and 2 3/4 x 2 1/4 inches; Best Dressed Designer Series Paper (DSP): 5 1/2 x 2 inches; 5/8 inch Organdy Striped Ribbon 7 inches and a bow.

Let’s Get Started:

I wanted the “Happy Easter” sentiment to be able to fit inside the Pretty Label punch. One thing you can do is cut the stamps so you can use a different arrangement for the sentiments. It is a little scary at first! They do fit back together on the block so you can use the original arrangement. Use the Melon Mambo ink to stamp the ‘Happy” onto the 4 1/2 x 3 1/4 inch Whisper White CS.

Stamp the “Easter” sentiment just under the “Happy” and slightly to the right. See how it fits nicely inside the Pretty Label Punch? Go ahead and punch the sentiment out.

Stamp the bunny and the little bee in Memento ink onto the 2 3/4 x 2 1/4 inch Whisper White CS. I just love this cute bunny!

Stamp the little patches of grass in Granny Apple Green ink just under the bunny. Tip: It is best to use the size of block that most closely fits the size of the stamp. You have more control and will not rock the stamp as much, thereby avoiding the halos you can get around your stamp. Sometimes you have to place the stamp on the diagonal to achieve this.

Use the Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Write Marker to color the bee. The Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Marker is used for the bunny’s ears and feet. Add a little bit of black with the Black Stampin’ Write Marker on the bee and the bunny’s nose.

Now we are going to use the Sponging Technique. To get the sponge ready, cut the Stamping Sponges in quarters, then cut each quarter in half. I attach a square of the coordinating color of cardstock with the name of the color written on it by stapling it to the top.

The Sponging Technique is an easy way to add a slight border to the card piece. Dab the ink with the sponge, then brush the edge of the card piece back and forth as you move along the edge. Tip: Start with light pressure so you only get a little ink on the card piece. You can always add more color but you can’t take it away!

This is the completed bunny piece with just a hint of Melon Mambo ink along the edge.

Use the Sponging Technique on the Pretty Label sentiment and the strip of Best Dressed DSP. On the DSP just sponge the two long sides.

We will adhere the ribbon with Glue Dots. Apply one Glue Dot to each end of the 7 inch piece of Organdy Striped Ribbon. Tip: I find it easiest to put the ribbon on top of the Glue Dot while it is still on the roll.

Adhere the ribbon to the strip of Best Dressed DSP, slightly to the left. Use the Bone Folder to make a crisp fold on the card base.

Adhere the DSP piece to the front of the card base, slightly to the left. Use a Glue Dot to adhere the bow to the top left of the card.

Now add some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the bunny and the sentiment. Tip: Make your Stampin’ Dimensionals last twice as long by cutting them in half.

Adhere the bunny piece, then the sentiment piece.

Viola! You have a very sweet Easter card! I hope you are able to observe the Easter season in a way that is still meaningful to you. It may take some creativity. Stay open to new ways of doing things. I have really been enjoying meeting with my friends on Zoom. That may be a great way for you and your family to get together.

Thank you so much for joining me today. I really enjoyed making this cute card.
