Happy Easter Spring Card

I’m having more fun with this gorgeous Easter bunny and today, my card has been inspired by 3 different challenges. This is the most amount of challenges I’ve combined at once. The colours are from the Colour Inkspiration #ci138 challenge and they reminded me of spring so of course that led me to the Global Design Project #gdp383 challenge. Bunnies, butterflies, Easter eggs – it was perfect for this theme.

Then to add a little more interest into the mix I played along with the TGIF Layered Shapes challenge #tgifc409.

I started off by colouring in the bunny in neutral colours. Then I moved onto the Stitched Circle which was blended with Highland Heather ink. For some extra detail, I stamped the text from the Quiet Meadow stamp set on top. This particular image is one of my favourites. I love the vintage look which adds so much character.

For the layered shapes I die cut some Stitched Rectangles and added them in an uneven arrangement on my card and layered it on a Basic White panel embossed with one of our brand new Basics 3D Embossing Folders.

I cut my sentiment stamp in half (it gives me more possibilities) and stamped it on the banner die cuts from the All That dies. Then I added some blending over a mask for a subtle pattern over the sentiment.

A little fussy cut butterfly and some embellishments complete my triple challenge card. I hope you have liked it and you might consider purchasing the Easter Bunny bundle for your Easter projecgts. If you want to know any details please get in touch with me.

Some Bunny Loves You

Oh what fun I’ve had creating this card using the cute Easter Bunny stamp set. I just got it in my latest Stampin’ Up! delivery and it’s the first time I’m playing with it.

I stamped the bunny in Sahara Sand and then coloured with Watercolor Pencils. For the body I used Crushed Curry with Early Espresso and Basic Gray adding some highlights and shadows. I added some Rich Razzleberry for a pink tint on her cheeks, ears and feet.

I stamped and coloured the left side of the body a second time. Fussy cutting and layering on top of the heart which had some Stampin’ Dimensionals under to pop it up, makes it look like the bunny is gifting a heart in keeping with our Love theme for the Global Design Project Challenge GDP379.

The soft floral Designer Series Paper added a lovely touch for this cute bunny card which uses the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches FMS571.

Although I’ve only used the stamp set for this card, this set also has a coordinating punch which you will want to order together to get the most out of this bundle and you also save 10% on the price. I’ve added the link below in the Product List. When your order reaches $90 you will qualify for a Sale-A-Bration reward plus my February tutorial bundle with 44 tutorials.

Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop – Fun Folds

Hello and welcome to our Stamping Inkspirations blog hop. Today I’m sharing with you an Upright Z-Fold Easter Card.

Stamping Inkspirations Blog Header

This is a simple fun fold to create. Cardstock is 10.5cm x 29.6cm scored at 7.4cm and 14.8cm. I love the sweet surprise when you open this card up.

I used the Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper to decorate the card. The inside panel was cut at an angle so the flowers were ‘leaning’ behind the bunny. I coloured the bunny in with Soft Suede and Petal Pink using a Blender Pen to lightly fill in the image.

A scalloped border was added in front of the bunny to resemble it sitting amongst flowers.

As the card doesn’t stand up I added a label folded in half to the top. The back half was adhered to the back of the card and just a little bit on the front top was glued on. The front centre panel will then tuck in under this to sit upright.

This fun fold is quick to create and would make a beautiful card to give someone this coming Easter. I hope you give it a try. A list of products I have used is at the bottom of this post. Several of these products are retiring and only available while supplies last.

Next on our hop is Sue Allen. Make sure you check out all the beautiful inspiration in our hop.

Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop – Easter


Thank you for stopping by my blog, Stamping Flair today. I’m an independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Melbourne, Australia. Our theme this month is Easter or spring. I’ve opted for the Easter part but it could easily pass for a spring project.

Stamping Inkspirations Blog Header

I haven’t got many of the current Easter stamps so I thought I’d go for a 3D project. You know all that time we spend on Pinterest? I found this really cute basket tutorial from Rachel at The Little Blue Room. There are so many baskets that can be made but I just found this one a little bit different and it is so easy to make.

I’ve used the beautiful Subtles range of Designer Series Paper as it had just the right colours for my Easter baskets.

How to Make the Basket

  • Start with a 6″ x 6″ piece of paper
  • Score on all sides at 2″ and burnish the score lines
  • Cut up the centre score lines (as shown in image)
  • Mark the 1″ point of the centre side panels with a pencil (halfway mark of the section that has been cut). Now cut from this point to the corners to form the triangles on both ends.
  • Cut the other 4 sections into 3 equal parts (as close as you can get)
  • Take a 1/4″ off sections 2 and 3, counting from the outer end
  • To assemble – Take the longest strips and glue together. Then glue the second row and third row.
  • Finally glue the triangle over it.
  • Die cut a circle from the Tasteful labels dies, fold in half and adhere over the centre
  • Cut a 2, 1/2″x6″ strips of cardstock. Use a bone folder to curve it then adhere to basket.

I used a sponge dauber to ink the edges of the paper in the coordinating ink colour which added extra depth. The small blooms were punched out from the Rainbow Glimmer Paper which offered me every colour I needed for my baskets.

I hope you have enjoyed this fun project and please let me know if you give it a try. Click on the Next blog button to view the beautiful work of Lisa Mackey.

Ink. Stamp. Share Special Blog Hop – Anything Goes

Hi friend,

Thanks for stopping by Stamping Flair today. I’m so pleased that you can join me for this special edition of the Ink. Stamp. Share blog hop. So why an extra blog hop? With many in isolation and not being able to go about regular work, we thought it would be nice to share an extra dose of fun through this hop.

Ink Stamp Share Special Blog, April 2020

Our theme today is Anything Goes, which leaves me free to create any type of project with any stamp set and tools I choose. As it’s Easter tomorrow, I thought an Easter bunny bringing happy thoughts would brighten your day.

Stampin' Up! Easter card with Free as a Bird DSP

I stamped the bunny on regular Whisper White cardstock in Stazon ink. Then I added a Pool Party wash with an Aqua Painter. The bunny was coloured in with Early Espresso and Melon Mambo watercolour pencils. 

This was then layered on a white rectangle embossed with the leaf embossing folder. 

Colouring in an Easter Bunny

I stamped the flowers from Free as a Bird stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and coloured it with Stampin’ Blends. Some leaves punched with the leaf punch have been added to complete the arrangement.
