I thought one of the cutest stamps in the Occasions Catalog was the Easter Lamb stamp I used to make this Easter Lamb Easter card. It actually comes with the Happy Easter greeting attached, but I cut it off to place it elsewhere on the card. It is just this one wood-mount stamp, and I think just the stamp itself would be cute set out for an Easter decoration when you aren’t stamping with it!
For a background I used my Watercolor Wash Wood-Mount Background Stamp. I mostly buy the clear-mount stamps because, well they are cheaper and they take up less storage space. But some stamps I do like the wood-mount, like these large background stamps so they are mounted and ready to go and just sturdier to use on the wood-block. I also like wood-mount for very tiny stamps. I inked this stamp with Soft Sky ink, stamped off a bit and still had plenty of color on my Whisper White paper. It is easiest to lay the paper onto the stamp which is face up on your desk, and then lay scrap paper, like computer paper or your Grid Paper over it so you can rub the paper on the stamp without getting inky fingers.
The lamb is stamped with Stazon Jet Black ink and I colored in a bit with a Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Write Marker and Smoky Slate. I also colored the grass green with a marker. I punched out the lamb with the 2″ Circle Punch and layered it on the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. For a little glitz, I also punched a piece of Gold Glimmer Paper to layer behind. I love that touch! Then for a little more interest, I added a strip of Jute Ribbon and Venetian Crochet Trim.
It’s time to start making Easter cards, so use this Easter Lamb Easter Card as an inspiration to get started!
