Whoa…sorry I'm late getting this posted today. We had another 8-10 inches of snow dumped on us yesterday and last night. I actually was up VERY early with my husband as he was trying to decide if the banks would be delayed in opening today. He runs all the retail banks in the Columbus area. The phone ringing and TV blaring was making it impossible to sleep.
I'm decided to join in on the Sketch Challenge over on Stampin' Connection, a website for demonstrators only that Stampin' Up! has provided for us. I loved the circles in this sketch and decided to expand it to a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 sized card.
I took my colors from the Cottage Wall Designer Paper (still wishing for that elusive Spring!) and I started with a base of Orchid Opulence. I layered on the floral pattern from Cottage Wall. I used my Circle Scissors Plus to cut out a Whisper White circle and then a Certainly Celery circle. I used a strip of Certainly Celery cut into "grass" blades along the bottom of the circle for the Chocolate Bunny to sit in, along with a stack of Easter eggs (1/2 small oval punch). The bunny was stamped with Chocolate Chip Craft Ink on Close to Cocoa cardstock and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder, then cut out and placed in the grass.
I used another strip of Cottage Wall Striped Designer Paper and layered it on Rich Razzleberry cardstock that I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch on each side. I wrapped some White Satin Ribbon around and adhered to the back. I stamped Happy Easter from Well Scripted in Rich Razzleberry on Orchid Opulence and punched with the Scallop Oval punch. Finally, I added a couple flowers from the Boho Blossoms Punch and a White Jumbo Brad in the center. Then used my Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die for the butterflies out of Rich Razzleberry! I'll be sending this off to my mom and dad when it gets closer to Easter!
Well…stay tuned this weekend! It will be FULL of posts on my Blog. Along with the Saturday Challenge from Create with Connie and Julie, I'll also have the Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge AND the Tour de Freaks Blog Tour starts on Saturday, too! There will be LOTS of ideas for you to enjoy from products out of the Occasions Mini!
