Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for April 2017. This month our theme is “Retiring 2015-2017 In Colors”. You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Queen B Creations or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.
I have to admit that the Stampin’ Up! 2015-2017 in-colors were not my favorite, but I will miss Tip Top Taupe and Mint Macaron, so I used those colors for the card stock in my Easter card. Can you believe that Easter is less than a week away???
I’m most excited about that because my hubby and I with be in the southern Caribbean on a cruise for Easter!! We are going to the ABC Islands – Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao on Royal Caribbean Navigator of the Seas!! Ten days of heaven, I can’t wait!!
My card base is Mint Macaron, 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25. I followed that with a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Tip Top Taupe and then a 5″ x 3.75″ layer of Whisper White card stock. On the Whisper White layer I stamped the carrot from the Stampin’ Up! Basket Bunch stamp set in Cucumber Crush ink and colored in with a Pumpkin Pie marker.
For my focal point I used the layering Ovals framelit dies. The scalloped circle is cut from Mint Macaron card stock and the plain circle in Whisper White. I die cut the basket in Tip Top Taupe for both layers. I used the foam strips to adhere the two basket layers together. I them cut the grass in Garden Green and stamped the bunny onto Whisper White card stock with Memento Black ink and cut it out with the matching framelit from the Stampin’ Up! Basket Builder framelit dies. I colored the inside of his ears with Pink Pirouette and the bow tie with Watermelon Wonder markers. The ovals are adhered to the card with Stampin’ dimensionals and the basket to the ovals with glue dots.
The inside of the card is lined with a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White card stock. I stamped the grass along the bottom in Cucumber Crush ink and the sentiment in Tip Top Taupe ink. The eggs were cut from the framelit with Whisteria Wonder, Soft Sky and Pink Pirouette card stock, while the bunny was stamped in Chocolate Chip ink onto Chocolate Chip card stock and cut out with the matching framelit.
