Easter/Spring Challenge

Hello, Friends. It’s time again for a new challenge at Magnolia-licous & Wee Stamps. This fortnight we are celebrating…
The DT has created some awesome cards and projects so I hope you stop over to the Challenge Blog for lots of beautiful inspiration.
My card features Tilda with Egg and Chicken from the 2013 Easter Collection colored with Copics. The background is created with Sky Blue ColorBox Ink and a cloud template I cut from cardstock. My designer paper is from Doodlebug Design and matted on Bazzill cardstock.
I got to play with a lot of die cuts for this card using my Magnolia fence, grass and the lace folded dies. I used my Catalina Wreath from Memory Box and my Butterflight "On the Edge" die from Tim Holtz. The butterflies die was run through my Fiskars crimping tool, sponged with white acrylic paint and I used pearls for the bodies. The tag is adorned with vintage seam binding and flowers from WOC and Martha Stewart lace. The sentiment is from the new Easter Collection.
My large and small bunnies are Magnolia stamps that have been heat embossed with Concord and Sangria embossing powders from Sparkle and Sprinkle. Then I cut them out and adhered them to the grass. I finished off the card with flowers from WOC and die cut leaves from Marianne Designs.
The inside is simple with papers from the front and stamped with Tilda’s Chicken.

Ink: Memento; ColorBox

Very pretty card! I love all the pastel colors you chose.


Chris said...

OK, next Easter, if I remember, I am so stealing your little bunny idea! I have those stamps and have never used them! You used them perfectly, you clever girl! I love your card! I so love all the layers. The butterflies are wonderful! I'm a bit prejudiced, though! Butterflies make everything look better! Your flower cluster is wonderful. Your Tilda is adorable! You did a wonderful job!
