Hanna Stamps Easter Clamshell Cards

Edited: There's a few of you with questions, you can email me at stamplady@satelephone.com. I will be subbing today, at BB games tonight and then to a BB tournament tomorrow. But I will try to get back to you as soon as I can. MM paper is from the Garden Party collection, SU! color is Pretty in Pink for the base card.

Tonight at midnight is a new release of Hanna Stamps. You can view the full sets being released HERE. The two sets are called Spring Time(Easter/Spring set) and Route 66 (the cute motorcycle set). The samples below are more of the clam shell scallop cards. You can view my previous post for instructions on how I create them.

The two images used are from the Spring Time set. Both are smaller accessory stamps but they stand alone wonderfully by themselves. The bunny reminds me of Bugs Bunny and the little lamb is just adorable. My daughter Jordan LOVES all things *lamby* so she'll love this Easter card this year. I cut out all the circle layers and the scallop card base with Spellbinder's Nestabilities Die Templates (from Ellen's store). Images are colored in with Copic markers and blended with a Copic blender pen. The dotted circle stamps are from Papertrey Ink. Ribbon from Stampin' Up!. Palette Black Noir ink for images. Paper from Making Memories....getting ready to do my Spring Inspiration Station so stay tuned for more of that paper! Here's a view of the opened card.
I can't wait to make more of these for Easter cards this year. Have you tried these yet? Now I'm off to search for some square, white envelopes....although they fit into a standard A2 size envelope just fine. Have I said I'm ready for Spring? I keep hoping that I'll see a red robin...some green grass......heck, I'd even settle for a with sunshine!! Hurrrrrrrryyyy Spring!

FABULOUS!!! I love the scalloped clams they're such a brilliant idea. The bunny does look like Bugs...especially the body language. TFS.

So, so super cute! I can't find your e-mail but would love to ask you a question about embossing with the Nestabilities. If you have a second would you e-mail me? Thanks!

I LOVE all the clam shell cards you are doing - I may have to give in and by the scalloped circle nesties! Is the Making Memories paper from the new line - Garden Party? It is really beautiful. And what SU cardstock color did you use? Inquiring minds want to know.

I love these scallop cards. Especially the spring colors. Just adorable. I have to agree hurry spring. Sleet is falling so I guess were going to have to wait alittle longer. :)

Too cute, that scalloped clam card design is fantastic! It would be super cute using the Crabby set from SU (using a clam for the "clam" card ;)) ~I'm going to give it a whirl, but I'll have to be creative since I am nest-less!

I LOVE these cute little scalloped cards. I have the oval & rectangle nestabilities... but now you gave me a reason to buy the round ones too!

These scallop cards are awesome! I was wavering on getting the Nestabilities but after seeing what they can do, well its on my wishlist. Thanks for sharing your wonderful creations.

What size of circle scallop die did you use for the scallop clam cards? I have used the largest scallop circle die from the complete circle set and have found the cards are smaller than I anticipated. Is there a larger die available to make full size scalloped clam cards? Thanks.
