It's Easter!

It’s Easter!

 Just in time to celebrate Easter our challenge at RetroRubber Challenge Blog is to make a project that is Easter related.  All we ask is that your stamps be older than a year (tell us how long they’ve been hanging in your stash) and that you link up to the challenge.  Check out the fun creations of the Design Team over at Retro Rubber

Card in open position
 This cute image of the reclining bunny just cried out for a flip card design.  I received these images in Jan of 2015 as a gift.  So they are just over a year old.  The patterned paper has been in my stash forever and was used on a layout for Easter several years ago, so the scraps have been in my card making scrap box. 

Front of the card

1.     Die cut base with Sizzix Card Square Flip-Its 2 from light blue card stock.  Die cut patterned paper pieces for accent.  Ink edges with Versa Magic Aegean Blue. 
2.     Trim white card stock to 2 3/8” x 2 3/8” and stamp Great Impressions Bunny with Versa Fine Onyx Black and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.  Repeat for the reverse image.  Use a sponge dauber to ink around image with Versa Magic Pixie Dust and ink edges with Versa Magic Aegean Blue.
3.     Stamp chick on white card stock with Versa Fine Onyx Black and heat emboss with clear embossing powder and trim to size. 
4.     Color craft mat or plastic surface with Memento Dual Marker in Angel Pink, London Fog, Tangelo, Cantaloupe, and Bamboo Leaves and pick up color with Nishi water pen.  Lightly water color images.  Set aside to dry.
5.     Add a same dab of Amplify! in White and heat set for the bunny’s little cotton tail.
6.     Stamp Hero Arts CL 1498 (also a 2015 release) on white card stock in Versa Magic Aegean Blue and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.  Trim sentiment. 
7.     Ink edges of chick and sentiment with Versa Magic Aegean Blue.  Adhere chick and sentiment to light pink card stock and trim.
8.     Adhere patterned paper and images to card base and enjoy!
