Easter Blog Hop

March

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects with an Easter theme.
Don’t forget, sale-a-bration ends on March 31st! There is still time to earn free product with purchase or even join our Stampin’ Up! team. Ask any of the girls on the hop for more details.

This is my first Blog Hop with the Art With Heart group.
I haven’t taken part in a Blog Hop in a very long time, so this should be heaps of fun!
I have used the gorgeous Fable Friends stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue, along with the equally gorgeous Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper, to make a card and two cute little “Bag in a Box”.

Easter 1

Bunny has been coloured using ink pads and an aqua painter.

Here is bunny up close.

Easter 4

And the boxes are just so quick and easy to make, using the Envelope Punch Board.
Perfect for a few Easter eggs.

Under Water Challenge

This week’s challenge at The Male Room, is “Under Water”.  Hmmm too many ideas…..  🙂
I decided to keep this one quite simple today, and play with some new toys products.

MascShellCard

I have used ink with an Aqua Brush and gone very quickly over the white cardstock to give a nice washy watercolour look for the background, and then stamped the lovely shell from By The Tide stamp set.
The sentiment is made using a bundle currently available in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalogue – the “Happy” from the Hello You Thinlits and the stamped “Birthday” from the Crazy About You stamp set.

Happy stamping!

Wetlands Sympathy Card

It’s never easy having to come up with a quick Sympathy card, so I went looking for inspiration on Pinterest…. lots of inspiration on Pinterest for all sorts of things!
I liked the idea of the watercoloured background and the simplicity of the card, but as usual I have made my own modifications.

I have used a sheet of watercolour paper and the Aqua painter to colour the background over the stamped image from the Wetlands stamp set, which was stamped, along with the greeting, in black Stazon ink.  Pretty simple really, just use lots of water, and keep on adding ink and blending until you are happy.

Happy stamping!
