Just Add Ink Challenge #447 Fable Friends

I’m participating in the Just Add Ink sketch challenge this week. I love working with sketches as it gives me a starting point but yet so many options to work with. 

Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge

I chose my bunny friend from Fable Friends for this card. This time creating a newborn card and using the sentiment from the Baby Bear stamp set. 

I added Soft Sea Foam to the Country Floral Embossing Folder before running through the Big Shot to create the background. I’m really loving this effect. It’s so pretty and soft. I stamped the bunny then masked off it off to stamp around it using the Artisan Textures stamp. The jacket has been coloured with Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends and the bunny in Early Espresso Water Colour pencil. I used Whisper White cardstock and gently blended it in using a Blender pen.

As I didn’t have any So Saffron ribbon and felt the card needed it, I coloured the tulle ribbon with a sponge dauber. The soft look suits this baby card. 

Embossing the envelope added a nice touch to create a matching look.

SIP #189 Gingham Easter Card

I’m participating for the first time in the Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge. I couldn’t go past the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper for this card featuring this cute squirrel from the Fable Friends stamp set. For me, this is the cutest stamp set in the Occasions Catalogue. 

I have made my card just a little bit smaller to work in with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits dies. The card base is 10.5cm x 13.8cm whereas usually it would be 10.5cm x 14.8cm. 

The squirrel has been stamped in Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends. The grass was added with Soft Sea Foam ink.

I picked up on the daisy the squirrel was holding and decided to pull out the old favourite Daisy punch. In our previous Annual Catalogue, this bundle was a firm favourite but I’ve not used it much lately. So, what better way to use it than to celebrate a bright and cheerful Easter. 

Easter Card with Gingham and Squirrel

I stamped 3 daisies on Daffodil Delight cardstock. Then I added some highlights with the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend. The petals were curled using a bone folder to add extra dimension. Offset the daisies when assembling them for a fuller look.

Daisy Delight coloured with Stampin Blends Alcohol Markers

As I had run out of large Clear Faceted Gems, I was forced to use a Gold one in the centre. This blended in too much with the flower and didn’t stand out at all. So I added more depth to it by colouring it in with the Dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blend. This matched well with the daisy in the stamp. 

The Easter sentiment has been heat embossed with White embossing powder.

Ok, it’s not a bunny but it’s cute and I think it still works. Make sure you check out all the checks and stripes on the Stamps, Ink, Paper blog for more inspiration.
