Easter Bunny in Bloom

This week I was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Pacific Point and Tina Wardell’s card. She used the masking technique to create a cute bunny card. I used the same technique and Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge colors and CASED her card.

I stamped on Shimmer White card stock the flower image first with Memento Black ink then masked it and stamped the bunny image with Smoky Slate ink. The flowers and butterfly were colored with Stampin’ Up Bermuda Bay light and dark alcohol markers. I used Stampin’ Write markers Coastal Cabana and Pacific Point since these colors are not available in alcohol markers. I used a Stampin’ Up Blender Pen with Coastal Cabana to softly color around the bunny and flower images. The sentiment I stamped in Memento Black then added clear rhinestones for some shine. I really enjoyed coloring the images.

See more inspiration for this color challenge from the rest of the design team.

Daffodil Daydream Easter Blessings

Inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments inspiration challenge and by Cindy Bee’s daffodil faux center step card. I had not had the opportunity to ink up the Daffodil Daydream stamp and die bundle and was inspired by Cindy Bee’s card. I used the dies to create a daffodil and cut-out the daffodils to create an Easter card. I also used the Daffodil paper from Sale-a-bration.

Stop by Hand Stamped Sentiments and be inspired by the design team.

Easter Friends say Happy Easter

I was inspired to create this card from Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge – Mint Macaron, So Saffron and Fresh Freesia. These colors are perfect for spring and for Easter. I recently purchased the Stampin’ Up Easter Friends and combined this stamp set with the color challenge to create an Easter card.

I used the three largest scalloped dies from the Scalloped Contours Dies. I used Fresh Freesia for the largest scalloped die then used DSP from the Hand-Penned DSP collection. The sentiment is from the Easter Friends stamp set and stamped in Mint Macaron on Basic White card stock. The cute ducky is stamped in Gray Granite and sponged with So Saffron. The legs, feet and beak were colored with a Blender Pen in So Saffron and colored darker than the body which I used a sponge dauber. To embellish I used Fresh Freesia color jewels from the 2021-2021 In Color Jewels. The ribbon is 3/8″ Open Weave Fresh Freesia. The inside of the card is stamped with Fresh Freesia sentiment and chick image in Gray Granite and sponged with So Saffron. Sentiment and images are from the Easter Friends Stampin’ Up stamp set.

Take the color challenge and see what you can create with these beautiful spring colors. Go to HHS and be inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments design team.

Happy Easter Chick

My inspiration for this week’s card comes from the Hand Stamped Sentiments  color challenge, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron, and a childhood favorite treat.  A beautifully decorated vintage diorama sugar egg.  I was always fascinated by these eggs because there was another world inside them filled with an Easter scene with a bunny, chick or lamb.  So cute and yummy!

My inspiration – Diorama sugar egg

 

Stampin Up Honeycomb happiness easter egg and chick cardI die cut two scalloped ovals  and one smaller oval for my card and stamped with the chick from the stamp set Honeycomb Happiness embellished with a honeycomb sponged with So Saffron.  I decorated the egg with flowers die cut from Calypso Coral card stock with the flower from the Ity Bitty Accents Punch pack and the Petite Petals Punch.  I also used the retired Itty Bitty shapes punch pack flower to die cut other flowers I stamped from the retired Your Perfect Day stamp set.  The leaves are from the Bird Builder punch.  The butterfly is stamped from the Butterfly Basics set and die cut with the Bitty Butterfly punch.  I then decorated with basic pearl strips.

Chocolate Easter Bunny Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have an Easter Inspiration Challenge.  I love the Chocolate Bunny image from My Digital Studio.  I printed him out in Early Espresso and with my Versamark pen I shaded in some of the areas then heat embossed with Iridescent Embossing Powder.  I then layered him over the Enchantment DSP and Soft Suede CS.  I used the Edgelit Dies, Adorning Accents embossing folders and coordinating stamp set Bordering on Romance on the Soft Suede and Calypso Coral.  For the bow on my bunny I used white Baker’s Twine that I dyed with Poppy Parade.

I also punched some of the flowers using the Blossom punch, Five Petal Flower punch, Boho punch and Punch Pack.  The flowers are embellished with pearls and butterflies die cut with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.   I also used the Pinking Hearts border punch underneath the sentiment.

Everybunny Easter Watercolor Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a watercolor technique challenge.  With Easter a few weeks awayI used the Everybunny stamp set to create this card.  I used blender pens and stamp pads to color the bunny image.  I stamped it with black StayzOn then colored away.  I used a bright color combination of Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo and Concord Grape.  I apologize for the photo.  My camera is still out for repair and had to take the photo with my iPhone.  The colors don’t show up true.

Everybunny Easter Treat

I’m so excited that spring is almost here!  In anticipation  I created this adorable pillow box and card  for Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.  A perfect treat to put in an Easter basket or to give just as is.  The challenge this week is a color challenge.  Create any paper crafting project with the colors of Real Red, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Daffodil Delight.

I used the new Easter stamp set, Everybunny, featured in the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog.  This set has so many cute stamps perfect for Easter.  I made the box using the Pillow Box die.  I stamped the hot air balloon image on Crumb Cake with Soft Suede and Versamark then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I used a blender pen to add color to the bunny and the balloon.  I then cut out the image and for a finishing touch I used Dazzling Details on the balloon.  I punched the flowers with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack then embellished with rhinestones.  I stamped the sentiment on Daffodil Delight and tied hemp twine around the box.  The 3″ x 3″ card was so easy to make.  I embossed the Daffodil Delight layer with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  The chick image I stamped then clear embossed and punched with the 1-3/8″ circle.  The flower layer is punched with the Fancy Flower punch.
