Precious Moments Easter

This week the challenge at Sweet Stampin' is Easter. This is a Precious Moments stamp made in the 1980's, which is when Stampendous distributed most of these stamps. If you're lucky enough to have any of these beautiful PM stamps, you're a fortunate person.


This little girl is wondering how to get this Easter egg out from under the frog, and I can't blame her if she doesn't want to touch him. Hahaha!  Here's a close-up of this sweet image.


I used Copics to color this image. I used a Double Scallop Doily die from Whimsy Stamps, a Magnolia border lace die and the tag die is Stampin Up (along with the sentiment). The daisies are Martha Stewart and the leaves punch is, also.  The metal corner is from Wild Orchid Crafts and I used white craft paint on the metal corner and on the button in the middle of the bow (which I cut off the shank). My paper is from a local scrapbook store and the lace is from my abundant collection.


Our monthly challenge is sponsored by The Ribbon Girl who is giving a £10 voucher!

  1. This is so pretty Gail. I have often thought that Precious Moments characters should be made into stamps, but had no idea that they already had. This image is really sweet and I love the soft spring colours. A beautiful design and gorgeous details.

    Hugs, Dawn

  12. Thank you for the comment you left on my Christmas card!! I submitted it to the Sweet Stampin' challenge as you suggested; thanks for letting me know about it. I've looked at your cards and they are AMAZING! This is the kind of stuff I wish I could create! Also it was nice to run into someone from Avondale--I grew up in the Tolleson/Avondale/Phoenix area myself (that ambiguous part where you're not quite sure which city you're in).
