For the first day of the reveals, we are showcasing the Hop Into Spring stamp set and coordinating dies, with the Raindrops and Petite Flowers Stencil.
I started by die-cutting the scallop card stock using the scallop die from the Frames and Flags die set. I created the sky background and the hills using the Clouds stencil, the hills from the Hills & grass stencil with some distress oxide inks.
The grass was die-cut using the Land Borders die set and inked up with Mowed Lawn distress oxide ink, and adhered on the background with foam adhesive.
I stamped my image using Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored them in with Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers. I adhered this piece with some liquid glue.
The word “Happy” was die-cut using the Holiday Greetings die set, while the word “EASTER” was die cut using the Essential Alphabet die set. I wanted the words to have different pastel colors so I used my TriBlend markers again to color them in. I adhered the letters using some liquid glue. Here’s that it looks like:
To finish my design, I added the butterfly from the Newton’s Birdbath stamp set. Here’s a closer look:
To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and sprinkled some embossing powder, then heat-set using my heating tool. I added some white heart sprinkles to adorn the card and glossy accents to the heart for more texture and dimension. Here’s a closer look:
