Full of Happiness Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Cute critters card by Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty for the Pals March 2020 Blog HopToday’s “critters” card was created using the Stampin’ Up! Full of Happiness, Easter Themed stamp set from page 44 of the 2020 Mini Catalog.  The power of THREE purples (Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, and Purple Posy) join forces. The 3/8″ Tricolor Ribbon from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog reinforces the ombre feel.  The ribbon is part of My Favorite Things from the annual catalog.  You can see all of my favorite things here

The Sending Flowers Dies (limited release from February 4 – March 31 or while supplies last) were used for the flower garden within the cracked egg.  There are 5 dies that quickly crop flowers and stems.  TIP:  I snipped the flowers from the circle with Paper Snips and adhered them to the backside of the egg.

BONUS COORDINATION! The egg from the Full of Happiness stamp set coordinates and can be quickly cropped with the egg die from the Dino Dies Set, pg 192 of the Annual Catalog (shown below).
