This week at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog our prompt was to use stamps in an Easter project. I decided to create an Easter Layout using the Noel Mignon Seaside cottage kit and the "Jelly Beans" stampset by My Cute Stamps . (Click on any of the images to view larger.)
The layer behind my photo was created using the Script Texture embossing folder. Before placing my cream cardstock into the folder to emboss it I spritzed the folder with Treasured Hymn Spritz, Copper Penny Vibez, Hot Fudge Vibez, and a bit of Licorice Spritz (by Shimmerz Paints ). I love how the colors mixed and settled into the recessed parts of the pattern emphasizing the texture.
I then added a splash of pink at the top by placing a butterfly punch on the cardstock as a mask and then misted over the corner with Bed of Roses Spritz by Shimmerz Paints . It was just enough pink to help the cardstock tie in with the rest of the page. :)
I stamped the sentiment from the My Cute Stamps "Jelly Beans" set onto a tag. I used a stamping marker to color portions of the saying one at a time, so I could space the quote out on my tag to make it fit. I stamped the bunny, carrot and easter egg onto cream patterned paper and then used Shimmerz Paints lightly on the portions of the image that I wanted a little color.
The pearl accents on the banner, the pearl curly line beneath the rabbit, and the pink icy blossom are all by Zva Creative . They are the perfect dimensional details that add a bit of Easter elegance to this page. :)
And for my sketch friends out there, I have created a sketch to go along with this page. Lots of layering on this one. Enjoy!
I hope you are having a great week!
Talk to you again soon!
