Let’s start with the super sweet spring and bunny themed dies apart of the Large Die of the Month.
I had so much fun creating this adorable spring of easter scene with this beautiful set of dies!
First I die cut all the images out of white cardstock. I then ink blended the die cuts to add color. I ink blended the basket in Antique Linen and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide. I die cut a second basket and ink blended that in Tea Dye Distress Oxide and then adhered the first basket on top. Next, I ink blended the rabbits with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide. I ink blended their ears and noses with Spun Sugar and the eyes with Black Soot.
I adhered the inner ears on and then used a small piece of micropore tape to hold the eyes and nose in place. Next, I ink blended the leaves with Crushed Olive and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide and the flowers with either Spun Sugar or Picked Raspberry and the centers with Mustard Seed and then adhered the centers to the flowers.
I then arranged all the die cuts and then used painters tape to temporarily hold them all in place, then flipped them over and added foam tape to the backsides. Next, I ink blended a 4 3/16″ 5 7/16″ panel of white cardstock with Tumbled Glass, Crushed OIive, Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide. I then added water spots with a paint brush.
When the water spots had dried I then splattered the panel with watered down Tumbled Glass, Crushed Olive and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. Next, I adhered the panel onto an A2 white card base with liquid adhesive. I then adhered the die cuts by removing the backing on the foam tape, sticking them down onto the card front, and then carefully removing the painters tape. Lastly, I finished the card by adding Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops to the eyes.
Next, up is a group of cards I created with the Fun Stampers Journey Stamp of the Month.
For these cards I first created the rainbow ink smooshed backgrounds. I ink smooshed several distress oxide colors (Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire, Dusty Concord) in approximately 1/2″ strips of color onto a water media mat by angling the pads when I pressed them onto the mat.
Once I had all the ink on my mat, I then spritzed the mat with water and then smooshed an A2 panel of water color paper into the ink. I then cleaned my mat and then repeated this process for two more panels. Next, I stamped a sentiment using the stamp set in Versamark ink onto gray cardstock and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder.
I then trimmed my sentiments down and added foam tape to the backside. I then finished the card by adhering the panel to an A2 top-folding card base and then added the sentiment on top.
I hope you enjoyed my cards! Thank you so much for stopping by!
