Cricut Jukebox Card

This is a Make It Now project from Cricut Design Space.  It was a bit time consuming for a card but I love it.

Easter Bunny SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring February’s SOTM, which is Easter Bunny, a set of 12 stamps. If you have come here from Vickie ODell‘s Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.

For the border on the bottom of this page, I “shaped” the stamp on my block in a wave before stamping.  When coloring the bunnies, I used the Colorless Blender to remove some of the Warm Grey from the faces and then added a little pink to the cheeks.  I also used the Colorless Blender for some shading on the ears.Products Used: Easter Bunny Stamp Set, Hello Lovely Paper Packet, Hello Lovely Complements, Black Memento Ink, Rose Gold Foil Tape, Gold Glitter Gems, Marvy Uchida LePen Journaling Pen, Blush Shimmer Ribbon, and ShinHan Markers (Warm Grey 4, Sap Green, Mahogany, Tender Pink, Colorless Blender).

On this next layout, I used the Waterbrush and inks to color the Picture My Life Watercolor Card and then stamped with Memento Ink.

Products Used: Easter Bunny Stamp Set, Whimsy Fundamentals Paper, Picture My Life Watercolor Cards – GoldBlack Memento Ink, Fern Ink, Sorbet Ink, Waterbrush – Medium RoundGold Glitter Gems, Hello Lovely ComplementsGold Shimmer Brush, Whimsy Ribbon Pack, Marvy Uchida LePen Journaling Pen, and ShinHan Markers (Pastel Peach, Barely BeigeClay, Peony Purple, Cerulean Blue LightMarigold).
