Today’s card is inspired by the MoJo Monday #440 sketch. My card took on a rustic flair with the Bear Hugs stamp set as the centerpiece. I hope you enjoy my entry for this week’s sketch.
Cut a base of pacific point card stock to the dimensions of 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ then score at 4 1/4″. Cut a 2 pieces of chocolate chip card stock to 4″ x 5 1/4″. Using the Hardwood background stamp inked with early espresso ink, stamp the woodgrain on both chocolate chip pieces. Cut a length of island indigo chevron ribbon to 7 inches. Attach the ribbon to the card front.
Cut 2 pieces of pacific point card stock to 1 3/4″ x 3″. Punch a circle out of crumb cake card stock. Using the Lovely Lace embossing folder, run the pacific point pieces through the big shout. Line the medallion on the Lovely Lace embossing folder up on the crumb cake circle and run it through the big shot. Decorate the scallop circle medallion with clear wink of stella.
Sponge the pacific point pieces with pacific point ink. Sponge the crumb cake piece with early espresso ink. Stamp the small bear from the Bear Hugs stamp set in early espresso ink and the sentiment in pacific point ink. Color the bear’s ears and nose with markers. Cut the sentiment out with the Bitty Banners framelit. Cut the bear out with it’s coordinating framelit.
Attach all the pieces to the front of the card as shown with dimensionals. Attach the other woodgrain piece to the inside of the card and put another circle out of the crumb cake card stock. Stamp a sentiment on the circle and attach both pieces to the inside of the card.
Easter is just around the corner. This adorable treat bag would be welcome in any Easter basket or as a gift for a teacher or friend. The fun Spring colors are pulled from the Sale-a-bration paper called Wildflower Fields. It is FREE with any $50 purchase in my Stampin’ UP! store.
To start, stamp the bunny face and ears in Stazon black ink on whisper white cardstock. Press the lid of the blushing bride ink a few times before opening the stamp pad to deposit some ink on the lid of the stamp pad. Using the aqua painter, pick up some of the blushing bride ink and water color the bunny ears and cheeks. Stamp the “you’re eggstraordinary” sentiment in black Stazon on the whisper white card stock.
Punch the bunny face and ears out using their respective punches. Cut the sentiment out using the project life framelit on the big shot. Pick a background paper for the sentiment. I used the chevron style from the Wildflower Fields DSP pack. Cut 2 of the smallest frame from the project life framelits on the big shot. Using your paper snips, cut a bunch of wildflowers from the same DSP pack. Cut a circle using the circle framelits from the Old Olive stripe also from the same DSP pack.
Assemble the pieces as shown above using Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up the bunny and the sentiment. Punch a hole in the top of the tag and loop string through the tag. Tie the tag to the top of the bag. Decorate with rhinestones and finish with a ribbon tie at the top of the bag. The ribbon will cover the string tie. My bag was filled with Springtime peanut M&M’s. Hope you enjoyed my latest project.
