Stamping Inkspirations - March 2021 Blog Hop

Hello and Happy Saturday to you! I am super excited to share a project with you today as part of the very first Stamping Inspirations Blog Hop! We are a group of stampers from all over the world who enjoy sharing our love of Stampin’ Up!® products. 

You may have arrived here from Susan Webster’s blog or you may be starting the blog hop here. Welcome! My name is Anne Marie Hile and I live in the Texas here in the United States. I’m so happy you stopped by today! 
Our theme for the blog hop is: Easter / Spring! I immediately knew I wanted to use the Springtime Joy stamp set because I hadn't inked up that cute little bunny yet and this was the perfect opportunity. She’s just so CUTE! 

*I’ve listed all of the measurements and details for my card below and there is a full supply list at the very end of this post.

Color Combo:
I decided to go with a soft color combo and kept the layout fairly simple to keep the focus on the sweet bunny. The Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder added great texture and also coordinated with the flowers on the bunny image. I used the Blending Brushes to add some Petal Pink shading to the stitched circle. It’s tough to see in the photos, but I added some Wink of Stella to the fussy-cut bunny and accented her with some pretty pearls.  
Card Measurements and Details:
  • Petal Pink Card Base: 4-1/4” x 11”, scored at 5-1/2” 
  • Mint Macaron Cardstock: 4” x 5-1/4” 
  • Basic White Cardstock: 3-7/8” x 5-1/8”, emboss top 2/3” with Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder, leaving space at bottom left to stamp sentiment in Momento Ink
  • Peony Garden Designer Series Paper: 
  • Mint Macaron Cardstock: scrap to die cut a 2-1/2” scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Dies
  • Basic White Cardstock: scrap to die cut a 2-3/8" circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies, add ink to the background using Petal Pink Ink and Blending Brush
  • Basic White Cardstock: scrap to stamp the bunny image from the Springtime Joy stamp set, color with Stampin’ Blends, accent with Wink of Stella, fussy cut and add to stitched circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals 
  • Pearls and White Baker’s Twine
  • Basic White Cardstock (inside card): 4” x 5-1/4”, stamp sentiment, flower and butterfly in Momento ink, color images with Stampin' Blends
Finally a peek inside the card. I added a coordinating Easter sentiment and a couple little colored images to dress it up. I really like how this card came together and I hoe you do too!
