Spring Bunny

I pulled out a very old Penny Black stamp and created a card.

The main image is a woodblock stamp from Penny Black, Bees & Bunny, dated 2001. I colored it using alcohol markers like the sticker on the woodblock stamp. The greeting is illustrated by Claire Brennan, distributed by Gina K Designs, copyright 2017, Springtime Baskets. The patterned paper is Echo Park either a spring set or an Easter set; I have both and didn’t make a note telling me which set it came from.

I am entering this in the Retro Rubber Challenge of Anything Goes, Sweet Stampin’ Challenge Blog using a mood board, and Mod Squad Springtime Bunnies challenge.

Spring has Sprung

I had fun with many colors, making a Spring card. This card fits several challenges.

I used two sets from Gina K Designs on this card: Spring Has Sprung, A Wish For You. I used many colors of Gina K Designs ink to create the rainbow of butterflies. I love Spring cards, so they are always a joy to create.

Double Dutch Fold Card

Front where the folds hold it open
Inside with folds open

I have been seeing Double Dutch Fold cards in several places recently and wanted to give it a try. I used a tutorial from Split Coast Stampers along with a blog post and You Tube videos.

Details: SU Blessed Easter for tulip image, colored with Spectrum Noir blender markers. The ovals were cut with Gina K Designs/Thermoweb stitched oval dies along with one Spellbinders Nestability Oval die (the pink one). The cardstock is SU pink, retired. I used a Crafter’s Companion Sparkle pen to give the tulips a bit of sparkle.

The inside is stamp is Joy Clair Easter Greetings. The white cardstock is Crafter’s Companion, cut with a The Stamps of Life Stitched Rectangle die. I used Gina K Designs ink in colors Blue Lagoon, Bubblegum Pink, and Moonlit Fog. The black ink used is Memento Tuxedo Black. The patterned paper is Echo Park Easter Wishes.
