Today I have a Spring card to share with you all, although you could easily adapt this to use for easter. The stamp set I will be using is Bunny Hop from Newton’s Nook and the dies I will be using is the double stitched rectangle and the Stitched Scallop nesting dies both from Kat Scrappiness.
To start my card I took my watercolors and my watercolor powders (I used brusho) and painted a simple rectangle to resemble grass and sky. Instead of adding water to my paint I used a bit of shimmer spray.
While the background was drying, I painted my little bunny with some Daniel Smith watercolors. I did three layers of color on the terra-cotta pot to add shading and depth.
Once everything was dry, I fussy cut the image and went over the image with a black marker. This hides any imperfections I had when cutting.
I cut out the watercolor background paper with the second largest of the Stitched Scallop nesting dies and assembled my little bunny scene. I added some suggested flowers here and there as I felt it needed just a bit more “something” and this felt like it completed the scene.
I cut the largest rectangle with my Double Stitched rectangle dies out of Easter Express 6×6 paper from Doodlebug. I chose a tone on tone print so that it didn’t compete with the focal image.
So I will be honest, I couldn’t find my stamping press in my craft room (I think it’s time for some crafty spring cleaning) So I dug out my old stamp positioner. Remember those? It worked great for stamping my sentiment in the corner of the card.
Then I took a .35 drawing pen and drew a border around my panel. on the inside of the stitching. I attached the tag to the printed panel with some foam tape and then glued the finished panel to a top fold card base. As a final touch I added some Clear sequins and some 6mm Heart confetti with Glossy Accents with up from my sequins and gem pick up tool.
