Ok my friend, lets get started!!!
Cute Easter Handmade Card
For my card today, I wanted to use the Springtime Joy stamp set mainly because it has the cutest little critters!
You can see them all in the picture in the left.
Are these not the cutest critters? and what is really good is that you can use several techniques to color them.. But for my card today I decided to color the little bunny with the stampin’ blends a.k.a. alcohol markers.
Using alcohol markers is one of my favorite ways to color, as you get really vibrant colors, plus you don’t see the strokes of your coloring. Not to mention that you can blend the different shades. So definitely if you have never try them, I would highly suggest to give them a try!
I know you will love coloring with them!
For my card, today I focused on the bunny, cause she was my favorite of all the images!
Coloring with the Alcohol Markers
For these cute little bunny, I decided to leave her white, so you can see that I used just a little of Gray Granite (light) on the outline of the bunny, to give her some dimension.
This is also key to make your image look finished. So any time you have a white image, try to add either Pool Party (light) or the Gray Granite (light) and you will see how much difference it makes.
I also added Flirty Flamingo (light) in her cheeks and then blend them with the color lifter, so that you can see the cheeks getting lighter in the outside.
And finally for the flowers in her head, I added Rococo Rose (both light and dark) and then Old Olive (light) for the leaves.
You could then add wink of stella to the flowers to make them pop up even more!
So give it a try and color using the alcohol markers from Stampin’ Up! (stampin’ blends). I know you will enjoy coloring a whole lot more.
Also please know that one of the benefits of using the alcohol markers from Stampin’ Up!, is that these coordinate with its color families, making it easier to color coordinate all the supplies in your card making projects or paper crafting for that matter! which you can see in my card!
The Color Combo
And talking about color combo, I used the colors of the bunny as inspiration for my color combination.
Once I knew which colors to use for my card, I pulled cardstock and other embellishments in these colors to make the card.. In this case I use the Rococo Rose as the card base as well as the main color for my card, mainly because I wanted to go really well with the flowers in the bunny!
And then I just pulled the sheets from the foil paper as well as the love you forever designer series paper (DSP) in rococo rose to complement my card. And the Pear Pizzas and the Basic Black were the highlight or complementing colors to pull the card together.
As usual, you know I love using sketches for my card, and this was not the exception.
On the left you can see the sketch I used for this cute Easter handmade card. This is not a new sketch and in fact, I have used it in several other cards, as it has become one of my favorite sketches!
The one thing I change is that instead of using a linen thread or bakers twine, I used the crinkled seam ribbon, which comes in whisper white. However, you can color it in any color you want with the stampin’ blends, so as you can see, I color it with the Rococo Rose (Dark).
This trick makes your embellishments color coordinate your projects!
So you can see why I love the alcohol markers from Stampin’ Up! These always helps me get the color coordination in all my projects in an easy way, even when I don’t have an embellishment in the color I am using.
I can always color my embellishments to make them coordinate! So always have neutral color embellishments on hand, so you can color them as needed!
Other details about the card
One thing to point out in my card, is that I added a layer (4″ x 5 1/4″) for the card front in the same color as the card base (Rococo Rose), this helped me hide the ribbon, as well as add texture to the card.
I embossed this piece with the Tasteful textile 3D embossing folder. This is one of my favorite folders, as it very general and would go well for any theme card, plus the texture is just really nice without being overwhelming. What do you think?
As far as the DSP, you can see how I interchange the pieces (3/4″ x 4″) from the Love you always DSP and foil, so it added a little bit of interest by breaking the pattern.
And finally for the sentiment I use the Well Written dies to cut the Happy, and then colored the word “Easter” from one of the sentiments with a marker and stamp it on a strip of Rococo Rose, so it reads Happy Easter.. pretty easy right?.
The cut out behind the bunny also came from the well written dies. I cut it with Pear Pizzas, and the flowers with the Foil sheet.
