He Is Risen Banner for Easter

Allelujah!  Christ is risen!  Easter is the most important celebration for Christians and I wanted to make a banner to remind me and others in my home about this wonderful event!

It’s challenging for me to get a good photo of this project, but I hope you get the idea. Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper makes a pretty background for my banner.  I just added some coordinating cardstock, some Easter Stamps and butterfly punches.  Don’t you just love how all the Stampin’ Up! products coordinate so nicely!

Here’s a closer look:

Notice the sparkle on the cloth draped over the cross!  Wink of Stella!

Love the Butterflies Thinlits, especially with a Vellum butterfly on top!


The supplies for this project are listed at the bottom of this post.  Most of them are RETIRING PRODUCTS, so be sure to grab them now before they’re gone!!

Be sure and check out what the other SSINK Designers have made for this Easter Theme!

Easter Message for Global Design Project 080

This week the Global Design Project is CASING Louise Sharp.  I love participating in their challenges because they have great sketches and help me with a beginning idea.  Here’s what I came up with for this sketch:

What a beautiful image that is!  And I love the verse that goes with it.  I used the Banner Framelits in place of Louise’s tag.  And I have this set on loan from my friend, Marylou, and wanted to play with it more before returning it.  I think I just may need to get one of my own!  The pretty Designer Series Paper is Blooms & Bliss  I used watercolor pencils & an aquapainter to color the image.  Here’s a closer look so you can see the sparkle from Wink of Stella:

To make this card, just check my supply list at the bottom of this post.  Now, be sure to check out what other stampers have come up with for this sketch at the Global Design Project!

Special Card for Global Design Project #GDP074

I’ve seen lots of exciting changes to my team, the Maui Big Shots, this last month!!  We’ve added several new demos and some of my demonstrators have stepped out of their comfort zone & hosted a Make ‘N Take!  I’m so proud of them & love all the fun & motivation I’m seeing!

I needed to make a special card for a new downline & went to the Global Design Project for inspiration!  Here’s their challenge for this week:  #GDP074.

Here’s the card I came up with:
