Easter eggs – IPC#68 reminder

Inky Paws Challenge

Hello Everyone,

It is time for another inspirational card for the current Inky Paws Challenge #68. The pastel colours are so springy, it cheers me up so much!

IPC68_zsm02_blog

For today I was playing with the Beautiful Spring stamp set, and heat embossed the pretty eggs in white on Bristol Smooth cardstock. I sponged distress inks on the background very lightly.

Then I coloured the eggs with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers. I used my Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen to add some sparkle to the eggs and emphasized some details with glossy accents.

 I also added a ton of tiny pearls to the swirls and a few glitter enamel dots.

The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn, I die cut it from white cardstock 3 timed and stacked them together for more dimension. I cut my panel slightly smaller than an A2 sized card, so I have a little white frame around it.

I hope I inspired you to play along with us on the Inky Paws Challenge #68. You have time till this Friday (30/03/2018) to be eligible to win the 20USD gift certificate to the Newton’s Nook Design online store.

Easter kitty-bunny – IPC#68

Inky Paws Challenge

Hello Everyone,

I am back today as promised with some pastel colours. The new Inky Paws Challenge #68 is live with some gorgeous colours, perfect for spring cards.

IPC68_zsm01_blog

For my card today I played with the cute Newton’s Easter Basket stamp and die set. I coloured my images with Copic markers to match the given colour combination.

I die cut an extra piece of the kitty in the basket from white cardstock and adhered it under the coloured one. In this way I get a bit of instant dimension without the bulk of foam tape. I love how the die cuts the little hole at the handle of the basket, such a nice detail!

Then  I started to die cut elements for my scene: grass from green cardstock, the frame (Pretty Pink Posh) from yellow and several times from white and the Happy Easter sentiment (Echo Park die) from light blue and grey for the shadow.

I looked for some patterned paper which could match my scene and adhered everything to it. I applied a little Tonic Shimmer Aqua pen on the Easter eggs and some glossy accents for extra shine.

Easter card with dies only

Hello Everyone,

We are back from our family visit in Cairo, we had a wonderful, sunshiny week there. After unpacking and washing I felt the need to craft, so while my little one had a nap and my daughter was watching a cartoon, I made this Easter card – using dies only.

I started with cutting a Quilted backdrop from kraft cardstock and glued it on a white card base. I die cut a strip of green plaid patterned paper, a thin strip of green glitter paper to go on top of the patterned one and a happy Easter sentiment from black shimmer cardstock.

I also die cut 3 bunnies from white cardstock using the Tiny gift box bunny add-on set. I coloured the inner parts of the ears and the carrot with Copics. The noses I die cut from shimmer black cardstock and pieced them together on my card.

I finished it off with adding google eyes to the cute bunnies.

I love the simplicity of this card and how playful it turned out. I will upload this to the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #24 Fun with dies, to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Inspiration Spring/Easter inspiration and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Easter Inspired.

I hope you like my card and will pop in tomorrow too for some more Easter inspiration.

Pastel Easter card – IPC#67

Inky Paws Challenge

Hello Everyone,

It is Monday again and time for the new inspiration for the Inky Paws Challenge #67. I just love any sketch with a tag involved.

After last week’s bright colours I made a pastel Easter card for today.

IPC67_zsm02_blog

I started with stamping and colouring the cute little bunny and butterfly from Bitty Bunnies using Copic markers. I added some dots with my darker colours as well as some accents with a white gel pen. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

IPC67_detail04

To make a scene for them I used the Cloudy sky stencil and sponged pastel colours on Bristol Smooth cardstock. I used a tiny sponge dauber, in this way I could use many colours of Distress Inks.

IPC67_detail03

The tag is from the Fancy edges tag die set, the grass I created with one of the stitched chevron accent dies in the set. The sentiment is from Newton’s Easter basket. I tied a bow from twine on the top and popped up the critters with foam tape.

IPC67_detail_02

I die cut the stencilled background with a stitched rectangle die and I cut also 2 stitched banners from coordinating cardstocks to go behind the tag, which is popped up with 3D foam tape.

IPC67_detail_01

A tiny bit of Tonic Aqua shimmer and glossy accents finished it off. I hope you like my card and got in spring mood. Come and play along with us at the Inky Paws Challenge #67, it is open until Friday (16/03/2018). A random winner will get a 20USD gift certificate to the awesome Newton’s Nook Designs online store.

I will upload this card to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Whatever the weather and to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Girl Power.

Bunny love with digi stamps

Hello Everyone,

A super quick post to show you how to make a sweet Easter card using digital stamps. I am using a cutie from Gerda Steiner Designs for their February challenge.

GSD_bunnies_01

I printed and coloured the bunnies an cut them with a stitched rectangle die (MFT). I also die cut the Happy word (WPLUS9) 3 times: 2 black and 1 pink, and layered them on top of each other slightly off-setting the pink one to have a shadow.

gsd_bunnies_05

I stamped an Easter sentiment under it from a Heffy Doodle stamp set.

gsd_bunnies_02

I popped up my panel on a piece of pink gingham patterned paper an adhered it to a kraft card base. A bit of Tonic Aqua shimmer on the tulip, some white gel pen dots on the cheeks and black glaze pen on the eyes and my card was ready.

I will upload this to the Gerda Steiner Designs February Challenge and to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.
