Hello there! I was super excited when I was asked to guest design for this month’s release and to join in on the Pretty Pink Posh‘s 2 day blog hop. There’s 4 $25 gift certificates up for grabs during this blog hop (see below for the details).
Today, I’m sharing a couple cards using two of the newly released sets: Best of Luck and Bunny Friends along with the Happy Easter die. I also have a video for one of the cards I’m sharing as well.
First up, I used the Best of Luck set to create this colorful and fun card. It’s a pretty simple card but it catches your attention. I used the coordinating dies to die cut the leprechaun, pot of gold and rainbow and colored them using Copic markers. Using distress inks on a piece of vellum, I blended rainbow colors. Against vellum, the colors are a bit softened and it looks so pretty. I added a heat embossed sentiment in white that pops against the different colors.
My second card uses the Bunny Friends set and the Happy Easter die set. I know that the main part of this set are the bunnies but I couldn’t help love the little flowers. I decided to create three lines of these flowers and used some masking tape to mark off space so I could blend two colors of distress inks for each row, darker on the edges and bright in the middle. I took the Happy Easter dies and layered three of them so the sentiment would have a dimensional look. While the colors might not scream pastel and spring, the colors pop against the white heat embossed flowers and I LOVE IT! We don’t always have to be traditional right?
My third and final card for this blog hop is this fun spinning card. I had an idea of bunnies hanging out together in a circle but since I do love interactive cards, I just had to add an extra element to it. It’s a fun step and although it seems difficult, it’s really easy to put together. Check out the video below!
