Happy Easter! He is Risen!

Posted April 20, 2014 By Shelly Godby


Happy Easter!  One church we attended on one of our many jobs, had an Easter tradition that I just loved.  You were to great each other with “He is risen!”  You then were to respond with “He is risen, indeed!”


Today as we celebrate Easter Sunday, I am sharing with you beautiful handmade Easter cards received from so sweet Godby (God-be) With Us Stampers.

Cardmaking for beyond a (Stampin’ Up!) Blessed Easter

Posted April 18, 2014 By Shelly Godby


Stampin' Up!  Blessed Easter www.stampingsmiles.comUse the gorgeous tulips of the Stampin’ Up! Blessed Easter Stamp can take your cardmaking beyond Easter.  A simple change of greetings was all that was required to turn this into a spring stamp instead of strictly an Easter stamp.


Looking at this card, are you seeing a flower bed full of tulips in bloom?   In some regions, many are enjoying them now.  Some already for a length of time.  In my northern Michigan flowerbed, we’re still looking forward to the spectacular vision.  Each day you see more green as the leaves grow taller.  Remember Master Gardener Mom?  She has designed by flowerbed so that flowers are always in bloom starting with the tulips and until late fall.  


The green of Gumball Green was the perfect green for my spring card.  It was an immediate favorite when introduced as a new 2012-2014 In Color.  Those two years have flown by, and now Gumball Green will be leaving us.  Many hope it will one day become one of the core Stampin’ Up! colors.  Because of a promise from Stampin’ Up! to only revamp the core colors every three to five years, the possibility of seeing Gumball Green returning is at least two years away.  If you love Gumball Green, I highly recommend you order the ink refill now and stock up on card stock.  Ink refills and card stock of the 2012-2014 In Colors will most likely be among the first retiring accessories to sell out.


Stampin' Up!  Blessed Easter www.stampingsmiles.com

Like my little notch for my Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon?  It allowed my to use the pretty ribbon without needing to trim the tulips layer or have ribbon hanging over the edge making it impossible to fit into a standard medium envelope.  What is great is that it was functional and a beautiful touch.


Stampin' Up!  Blessed Easter

For our little something-something inside, the tulips are peeking up from the corner stamped in Daffodil Delight Classic Stampin’ Pad ink.   Sweet.


Easter will be here in just a couple of days.  If you thought was too late to order the Blessed Easter Stamp for cardmaking this year, now you know how to use it for a beautiful spring card.  Order the Blessed Easter Stamp in my online store www.shopwithshelly.com!


Beyond Blessed Easter Product List



Clicking on the picture of the product will take you into my online store while still available to order.  Gumball Green products will be while supplies last or June 4, 2014.  Blessed Easter is available through June 1, 2014.
