ICS Blog Hop Welcome Spring
Welcome to our March ICS blog hop! I hope you have enjoyed the blog hop thus far! The theme for this month is "Welcome Spring." In my neck of the woods in the Midwest we seem to have spring, back to winter, back to spring, and on & on. The calendar now says March and that means we are just weeks away from Easter.
I had to use this cute lamb & sentiment for my card. The lamb was stamped in Memento Black ink on Shimmery White cardstock, and it was colored with an AquaPainter using Blushing Bride, Smoky Slate, and Cucumber Crush. The Circles Framelits were used to to cut it out with the 5th one (starting from the smallest) and the Cucumber Crush in the 6th. The Hardwood stamp was inked in Tip Top Taupe and stamped on Thick Whisper White cardstock. A small bow was added under the sentiment and the layers were popped via Stampin' Dimensionals.
This cute Easter basket design was created by Connie Stewart and the video tutorial is here. All the details are in this tutorial. The modifications I made were to use the Large Dot embossing folder and the tag using Pool Party as the base. The little chick from the Honeycomb Happiness stamp set was stamped in Memento Black in order to use the AquaPainter with Pumpkin Pie & Daffodil Delight. It was then cut out using the Ovals Framelits. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamped in Rich Razzleberry (& popped via Stampin' Dimenstionals) to match the ribbon. It was punched with the Word Window punch. The Pool Party oval for the tag is a leftover piece when making the handles.
This is the other Easter basket. The modifications I made were to use the Large Dot embossing folder and the tag using Calypso Coral as the base. The cross from the Blessed by God stamp set was stamped in Early Espresso and fuzzy cut. The cross was popped with Stampin' Dimensionals A scrap of Whisper White was stamped on in Crushed Curry with the sun from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set. It was then cut out using the Ovals Framelits. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamped in Rich Razzleberry (& popped via two layers of Stampin' Dimenstionals) to match the ribbon. It was punched with the Word Window punch. The Calypso Coral oval for the tag is a leftover piece when making the handles.
I wanted to add some grass to the basket so I used my trimmer with a 6" x 6" piece of Cucumber Crush Cotton Paper cut into strips & crumbled.
