Hoppy Easter

SUO94Hoppy Easter!  It’s time for another SUO challenge and this time the theme is “It’s Easter Time”.

So…okay…here’s the story.  I LOVE the little rabbit in the Baby We’ve Grown set but I did not buy the set.  If you look at the set and look at my card you are probably thinking that my card is really small.  NOPE!  My rabbit is BIG!  How’s that you say?  Well…this is a HYBRID card!

Here’s the details…

  • Pink Pirouette – 4 5/8 x 9 folded run through the large scalloped Square Framelit
  • Pink Pirouette – 4 5/8 x 4 5/8 and run through the large scalloped Square Framelit.  Add this to the front of the folded one so that it gives the base the full square scallop framelit look.
  • Design the panel with the rabbit and HOPPY Easter in MDS.  My panel is 3 5/8 x 3 5/8.  My rabbit is 3″ high and is from the Baby, We’ve Grown digital set.  Easter is from Well Scripted digital set.  I just typed in HOPPY.  This is printed out on Whisper White and trimmed to the 3 5/8 x 3 5/8.
  • Color the rabbit using Pink Pirouette. I used Pink Pirouette, Wisteria Wonder and Pear Pizzazz markers to make the strips on its belly.  The end of the paws and bow tie is Wisteria Wonder.
  • Add to Wisteria Wonder 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Take a piece of Pear Pizzazz dsp 3 5/8 x 3/4.  I cut the top on a wavy line then used my fringe scissors to create grass.  This is added to the bottom of the pane.
  • The sun is made from a 1″ So Saffron dsp piece then So Saffron banners using the SAB Banner Punch (which will be available in the new catalog).  This is added using a dimensional to finish it off.

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team did with punches.  Everyone had such a unique take on this!

Tour de Freaks

freakwelcome2013Welcome to the March Tour de Freaks where we are celebrating SPRING and Easter.  If you are going forward through the hop you have arrived here from Patty Bennett’s Patty’s Stamping Spot blog.  Weren’t those projects just WONDERFUL!

HopCardOh…I don’t know about you but I am SOOOO ready for SPRING!!!  This has been some winter and maybe…just maybe we are done with snow in this neck of the woods.  A girl sure can hope!

I decided for my project to do a little ‘hybrid’ work…using My Digital Studio along with stamps and ink to create my projects.  I haven’t done that in a while.  For my projects I did the ‘think SPRING’ using My Digital Studio, printed out on Whisper White and then went to work from there.  I stamped the stem in Versamark and embossed using Wild Wasabi Embossing Powder, I did the flowers in Strawberry Slush and then one is added using dimensionals.  This panel is layered onto Wild Wasabi, I added a Smoky Slate Chevron Ribbon ‘tab’.  I did a Strawberry Slush panel through the Fancy Fan Embossing folder, added to a Strawberry Slush card base then added the think SPRING panel using dimensionals.  I added some Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.

HopFrameBack for our Halloween hop last year, I did a little mini memory box just like this only it was black.  I bought that and this white one last year at Michael’s but I’m sure you can find it on the Internet.  I hadn’t done anything using this white one so out it came for SPRING!

The top panel is Strawberry Slush dsp.  I made the panel the same as I did for the card above only put on one flower instead of two.  The flowers on the bottom are all stamped in Strawberry Slush.  The leaves are the bird wings from the 2-step bird punch and the leaves/branch from that punch.  They are in Wild Wasabi.  Each flower is layered onto a Label Punch Smoky Slate piece then added to the little window.  Because of the depth of each of the ‘windows’ there is a lot of dimensionals popping things up!  I made a bow out of Pear Pizzazz Chevron Ribbon and a Boutique Detail and added using glue dots.  Basic Rhinestones are added to finish it off.

I hope you are feeling a little ‘springy’ now!  And if you are ‘hop’ on over to Cindy Elam’s Heart’s Delight Cards blog and get ready for more fun!

Hybrid Card

Sorry I haven’t been posting that much lately.  Just finished off my winter quarter (this week is spring break) and I had 3 workshops this past week too!  BUSY…REALLY BUSY!!!  But it is over so I’m going to do a little STAMPIN’!

This is for the CAS challenge on SCS.  This week is an inspiration challenge.  You’ll have to check out the CAS challenge thread to see the inspiration piece.  But it did have fun ‘spring’ colors and CUPCAKES!  Now as I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do, I knew I wanted a fun little cupcake image but I didn’t have anything that was the size I wanted so I decided to do a ‘hybrid’ card using My Digital Studio!  I found this adorable cupcake image in Calendar kit and could resize to work with my design.  I had never tried do a ‘stamp’ in two different colors so I had to learn that before I could work my design up and it worked!  The bases of the cupcakes are in Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, and Wisteria Wonder and the ‘icing’ is Chocolate Chip.  Once I had my cupcakes done I exported to .jpg, opened in publisher and printed out.  Then I could punch them out with my 1″ Circle punch to use in my design.  The base of card is Whisper White.  I took another piece of Whisper White and stamped the greeting using Chocolate Chip and added this to the card front using dimensionals.  I punched a piece of Pretty in Pink with the Scallop Edge punch and added to the card front and added a strip of Chocolate Chip as an accent.  I added the cupcakes to the card front using dimensionals and added some rhinestones to finish it off!
