I went a little crazy with all the layers of cute papers from the Spring Fling paper pack… but how could I not?! These papers are too cute!! This fun sketch is the current Mojo Monday sketch over at the Poetic Artistry blog. I love to check out the sketch blogs for inspiration!
I stamped the sweet girl holding the flower from the Spring Showers stamp set with Memento Tuxedo black ink on white card stock and then again on a post it note to mask my image. I blended a little Tumbled Glass and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide inks over the masked image. You may notice that the color seems a little smudged… that’s because I forgot to heat set the black ink. I still make mistakes after twenty plus years of cardmaking… lol! Anywho, it still looks okay so I removed the mask and colored the image with the following copic markers:
Skin ~ E000, E00, E21
Hair ~ Y21, YR12, YR14
Clothes ~ BV0000, BV01
Hair Clip/Flower ~ R81, R85, Y06, Y15
I adhered all the layers together, wrapping the cluster of layers with a little white baker’s twine. I then adhered the layers to the purple flower layer that I had adhered to a white card base. I popped up the main image and the sentiment with some foam squares to finish off this card. I think it turned out pretty cute… what do you think?
While I was playing with the papers and stamps making the first card, I had a fun idea for this second card. I had run across this sketch on the CAS(E) this Sketch blog and thought it would be cute to feature this adorable little girl playing in the rain. I stamped the girl and umbrella with Memento Tuxedo black ink and then colored them in with the following copic markers:
Skin/Mouth ~ E000, E00, E21, R14, N4
Hair ~ E35, E37
Clothes ~ C00, C1, R81, R83, R85
Umbrella ~ R81, R83, R85, BV0000, BV01
I created the background by stamping the Rain Showers stamp twice on a piece of white card stock with VersaMark watermark ink and then I heat embossed an ultra fine clear embossing powder. I then blended the Tumbled Glass and Mowed Lawn Oxide inks to create my sky and ground. I die cut the background with a circle die and then mat it with a scalloped circle that I had die cut from another piece of white card stock.
I couldn’t find quite the right blue card stock for my card base so I cut one of the papers from the Spring Fling paper pack. Even though it’s mostly covered by the next layer of papers… I wanted that blue layer to help it all pop. I then adhered the three strips of patterned paper to a white piece of card stock measuring 4-1/8 x 5-3/8″. I adhered that layer to the card and then popped up the main image with foam squares. I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of white card stock and then mat it on the same blue patterned paper I used on the base. To finish off the card, I added a few Sea Breeze Jewel drops… I like the translucent look to these drops.
I recently made this adorable card…I wasn’t quite ready to let go of it so thought I would use it for my post today. I love the sentiment on this card. It was mine and my sister’s favorite song to sing at Eastertime. We sang it so much I am sure we tormented our parents with it. I really had a blast making this card and will enjoy looking at it until next year comes along and I send it off to someone…probably my sister!
Thanks for stopping by and checking out what’s up today on The Blog! I have loved Easter since I was little, I can remember digging into my Easter basket as a little one and then having to put it all down to get dressed up to go to the Easter Service and looking at my mom in disbelief that I was going to have leave all of the goodies I JUST found out about!
The love of Easter and bunnies has stuck with me through the years leaving me with a soft spot for cute bunnies and Sunny Studio’s Clear Stamp “Chubby Bunny” have some of the cutest bunnies I think I’ve ever seen!
So here is the journey of the card I made from stamping out the images to having to do a little card surgery but in the end I still arrived with a cute little Easter card I can’t wait to give to somebunny special. (I know, it’s just too precious, I almost can’t stand myself either, lol!)
I stamped out all the images, colored them with Copic Markers and then cut them out using my Scan n’ Cut.
I got out one of my sets of square dies, these happen to be from Gina Marie and I thought it looked like a picture frame and I liked the idea of being able to stamp my sentiment across the top since it looks like a banner. Once I got everything cut out I glued it down using Lawn Fawn’s adhesive which has quickly become one of my faves. I stamped my sentiment using VersaFine in Black Onyx and also blinged up a few things using my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Marker. Once I got my sentiment in place I added a few silver glossy dots from Pink & Main.
I used a white pen to hit the bunnies’ teeth and then a black gel pen to do their eyes and though I would do one little guys mouth. Then things went awry! My black gel pen just put out much more ink than I was expecting or maybe I pressed too hard and that’s why the calamity began I am still not sure. I just know that I panicked and tried to fix it with my finger and the more I touched things the more things just went worse! That’s when I knew it was time to call up another bunny and put this little guy out of his misery.
The surgery went a lot easier than I expected and I was even able to cover up any paper tears with my new little candidate. I wanted to include this part of the journey and a pic to go with it because I don’t know about y’all but rarely do I make a card without having something that needs to be fixed. I will say I don’t typically lose an entire character but hey, it happens.
In the end it all came together and at least I got to use my favorite little bunny which is the one in the center. The little brown bunny eating a chocolate bunny, this image cracks me up!!! In my head when I see this little guy chowing down on that chocolate bunny all I hear is “Nom, nom, nom, nom!”
Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you will get the chance to create today or at least do something that you’ve been wanting to do! Take care and I hope to see you back here soon.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Today I am sharing with you what I made with the Some Bunny stamp set from Lawn Fawn. This type of stamp set is my favorite! It can be used for friendship, thank you, love and of course Easter. I wanted to make a card for a friend who went above and beyond for me and the sentiment on this card is just perfect.
cut out the little characters by fussy cutting them then went around the edges with a black marker to give a more finished look
using a 6x6 paper pad from my stash I used a green sheet that could work for the ground and a blue sheet that could work for the sky even though they have patterns on them
in order to give this card a bit of dimension I put pop dots on the back of the planter and tucked the carrots in behind it
after stamping the sentiment in Versafine Ink black onyx I covered it with clear embossing powder and hit it with a heat tool to get that shiny look (I hope it comes through in the picture)
I had stamped out the images a couple of times in case I messed one up and had a little bunny that didn’t make it in the scene on the front of the card so I decided to add him to the inside (when I can I like to do something to the inside). This card was fun to make and while making this one I came up with a few more idea for other cards, hence the reason I LOVE this stamp set, there are just so many different scenes to create with it!
