For Day 3, we are showcasing the Baa Stamp Set and coordinating dies.

This stamp set is probably one of my favorites from the release this week!  Once again I wanted some soft colors to welcome spring!

I started by stamping my images on some Neenah solar white with Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  I colored the images in with alcohol markers and positioned the dies with some purple tape to die-cut them out.

Next, I die-cut the elements that I need to create my scene using some of my favorite scene-builder dies from Newton’s Nook –>  Land Borders Die Set (for the grass and hill), Picket Fence Die and the Sky Scene Builder die set. The tiny trees were die-cut using a die from my collection.

I prepared my background by adding the clouds using the Clouds Stencil with some blending brush and dye ink.  I adhered this panel on an A-2 size notecard.   I started adhering the pieces that I die-cut earlier to create my scene and foam-mounted the grass for added dimension.

I adhered the colored images with some liquid glue and finished the design by adding the sentiment that was embossed and heat-set on some black card stock.  Here’s another look at the finished card:

For the first day of the reveals we are featuring the Spring Roundabout Stamp Set that coordinates with the Circle Frame Dies and Banner Trio die, along with the Basketweave and Bunny Tail Stencils.

It’s all about Spring colors today guys!

I started by cutting an A2-size panel of some Bristol smooth white card stock.  I sprayed my Basketweave stencil with some Pixie Spray and temporarily adhered it on the panel.  I used my blending brushes and some pink and peach dye inks to add the basketweave details on the background.

Next, I stamped the images on some Neenah solar white card stock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored the images in with Spectrum Noir “Hint of Collection” alcohol markers.  I used the Circle Frame die to die-cut the image.  I also used the same circle frame die to die-cut a few pieces of white and pink card stock to create my shaker card.  I adhered the pieces together with some liquid glue to create my shaker well.  I added some iridescent sequins  as my shaker element.

To close the shaker portion, I adhered some acetate sheet to the pink die-cut and added some liquid glue.  I put some big acrylic blocks on this and waited for about half an hour until it was completely dry.

I die-cut from the Bitty Bibs die set and added some color to this piece.  I also added some glossy accents to give it more texture and dimension.  I waited for this piece to dry for about 30 minutes.

Next, I added my shaker to the ink-blended panel with some liquid glue and also added the little bow.  I finished my design by adhering this panel to an A2-size notecard and stamped the sentiment with Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  Here’s another look at the finished card:
