Stampin' Up Basket Bunch, Easter Message, Basket Builder, Tags & Labels, Layering Ovals, Note Cards

OMGosh...the sun is shining this morning!  It looks so bright and gorgeous outside!  Our high for today is 34 degrees; but, the wind chill makes it feel like 21.  It's supposed to cloud up and have a few lake effect snow showers this afternoon.  I'll enjoy this sun for now though!

My share for today is a card I designed using Stampin' Up's 2016-2018 In-Color Designer Series Paper Stack, Basket Bunch and Easter Message Stamp Sets, Basket Builder, Tags & Labels and Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and Whisper White Note Cards.

Let's take a look:

I used Stampin' Up's Whisper White Note Cards for my Card Bases.

My Card Front Panel is a Sweet Sugarplum Flower piece from the 2016-2018 In-Color Designer Series Paper Stack cut at 3-1/4" x 4-3/4" and adhered to my Card Base with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

Using SU's Layering Ovals Framelits Dies,  I die cut an Oval from Whisper White Cardstock.

Using SU's Basket Bunch Stamp Set, I stamped Mr. Bunny in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Crumb Cake Cardstock and die cut him out using SU's Basket Builder Framelits Dies.

I used my Stampin' Write Markers in Blushing Bride, Rich Razzleberry and Soft Suede to color Mr. Bunny's Ears, Bow Tie and Tail.  I then went over my coloring with my Aqua Painter.

Using the Basket Bunch Stamp Set, I stamped the Small Easter Eggs in Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum and Soft Sky Inks onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  I stamped another Egg in Blushing Bride Ink onto Blushing Bride Cardstock.  I then water colored my Eggs using my Aqua Painter with the same Inks as the Eggs and die cut them out.
I also stamped Mr. Bird in Soft Sky Ink onto Soft Sky Cardstock and fussy cut him out.  There's a die for the Bird; but, I wanted to fussy cut out the bird.

I die cut a Scalloped Oval and a smaller Scalloped Oval inside the Scalloped Oval for my Frame. 

Using the Basket Builder Framelits Dies, I die cut the Grass from Old Olive Cardstock, adhered it to the base of the Oval and trimmed off the excess that hung over the edges of the Oval with my Snips.

I adhered Mr. Bunny and the Eggs onto the Oval with Stampin' Dimensionals as shown in the picture above.  I adhered the Oval to my Card Front Panel with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I then adhered my Scalloped Oval Frame on top of the Oval with small pieces of Stampin' Dimensionals.

And, I adhered Mr. Bird to the top right of the Frame with small pieces of Stampin' Dimensionals.

For the inside of my Card:
I adhered a scrap of Sweet Sugarplum DSP that is 3/4" x 3-1/4" to the inside of my Card with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
I die cut another piece of Grass from Old Olive Cardstock and adhered it to the DSP with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

Using SU's Easter Message Stamp Set, I stamped my Sentiment in Sweet Sugarplum Ink onto Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock.  I trimmed out the Sweet Sugarplum Sentiment to measure 1" x 2-3/4".  

Using Tags & Labels Framelits Dies, I partial die cut both ends of the Sentiment piece with the smallest Tag die.  After partial die cutting each end, I used my Snips to trim out the center portion of the Tag where it didn't get completely die cut.  I adhered the Tag die cut over the Grass die cut with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I stamped the Small Bunny in Soft Sky Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock, die cut the Bunny out and adhered him to the top of my Sentiment with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

My Note Card turned out exactly as I envisioned it!  Love it when that happens!!!

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!
