You may think the Easter Lamb is just for Easter, but it’s not!! Check out this sweet lamb baby card…

Paper Sizes:
Mint Macaron card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″
Mint Macaron embossed: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Blushing Bride: 1/4″ x 4″
Scallop Lined Paper: 1-1/2″ x 4″
White Greeting Strip: 1/2″ wide

For this card it didn’t matter so much because I cut my stamped lamb into a circle shape that cut the words off, but if you want to ONLY stamp the lamb and not the “Happy Easter” here’s one way you can do it…

Place a piece of tape across the part of the stamp that you don’t want, in this case the “Happy Easter”. Ink up your stamp. VERY IMPORTANT: Remove the tape BEFORE you stamp your image. 🙂

You could also just ink up part of your image with a marker, but sometimes that takes too much effort. I’m all about the quickest method.

Here is another trick that I use frequently in my card making…

Slide the end of a strip of paper (about 1/2″ wide) through the back of the Banner Punch so that you only punch the banner end. This allows you to have your paper strip as long as you’d like it to be. On this baby card I repeated the process on both ends.

I also did some soft coloring on that sweet little lamb. I used a Blender Pen with my Blushing Bride ink to color in the ears and rosy cheeks, then with my Mint Macaron ink to color the grass. The edges of the circle and the white around the lamb were sponged with Soft Sky ink.

So think outside the box a bit! What “holiday” stamps do you have that you could use for a different occasion?
