Hi there! I’m up on the Honey Bee Stamps blog with some punny Easter inspiration for you using some of the products from the latest release! I never have been much for “cute” or punny projects, preferring to keep things a bit more elegant, but the new Easter Basket Builder stamp set is a great combination of elegant and adorable! Let’s get started with the details on my project.
To start, I stamped several elements from the Easter Basket Builder using Copic-friendly ink on some Neenah cardstock, then used my Copic markers to color them. I like to use unexpected color palettes, this time going with a raspberry, peach, and sunny yellow color scheme for the basket full of eggs. I die cut the colored images using the coordinating Honey Cuts.
Next, I die cut a panel using the Basketweave Slimline Die to create some beautifully subtle tone-on-tone texture. Because this die is made to create a slimline card, the dimensions are not quite wide enough to cover the entirety of the A2 card front, but I like the plain frame that it leaves on each side! I blended a bit of peach ink in the spot behind where the basket sits using a blender brush, helping to draw the eye to the focal point of the card.
I adhered the die cuts to the card front using foam adhesive, then added a greeting from Hoppy Easter, which I stamped in black and then die cut from the coordinating dies. Finally, I added a few Moonlight gems for some sparkle.
Well, that’s all for my project today! We are supposed to have some really beautiful weather the next few days… spring is definitely on the way! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a marvelous day!
