Memory Box Easter Eggstravaganza Frame, Springtime Floral Egg, Happy Easter Journal Script, Hippity Hoppity, Bunny Silhouette and Delphinium Circle Dies…

Hello card makers and friends! Maybe I should’ve saved this one for Easter Sunday! Maybe I’ll take a blogging break that day! hehe

Another ink blended background using Distress inks on Mixed Media card-stock.  I really like using this stock because it blends so easy and is very forgiving…any marks blend out and the colors move together so well. My arm gets tired, so easier and faster is good! A few water drops is all…kept this pretty simple.

I die cut the Easter Eggstravaganza Frame in white card-stock and ran it back through the Big Shot using the Multi-Purpose platform on Tab 2, the tan mat and  5 pieces of 65# card-stock for extra shimming. That gets the detail embossed nicely.  If it doesn’t emboss as deep as I want, I turn it to the back side and using an embossing stylus I rub in the spots that are meant to emboss. Bummer I didn’t get better pictures of the embossing but I think you know what I mean.

I love this long bladed grass die though… I don’t have the solid egg dies that fit behind but I think I would’ve liked them too.  I’ll put them in the link up below in case you’d want a solid layer behind your decorative eggs.

This picture shows I die cut 3 of the Happy Easter sentiment.  I added a few dots of white gel pen too.

I inked the top Happy Easter before I glued them together.  I left it in the negative cut while I was inking to keep it from bending out of shape.  You could ink your card-stock and then die cut too.

Any Easter-y Distress ink colors will work!

Next card…

This is my second make of this card.  The first one I glued the words on hoppity hippity!  Go Pam! lol  Funny thing is, I didn’t even notice it for a couple weeks! That’s scary! lol

I die cut the Delphinium Circle in Mixed Media paper and likely inked it with Wild Violet I think. Then I die cut it with the new Square Basics dies. I inked a piece to go behind the circle too…again with Distress ink and the ink blending tools.

Hippity Hoppity was die cut from MM card-stock and inked with Wild Violet Distress ink too.  I dropped water droplets on it to get that distressed look. Really nice size sentiments…easy to glue on with my favorite Tombow Mono Multi glue.

I die cut and embossed the Bunny Silhouette die, left it in the die, turned it over and inked it with Hickory Smoke Distress ink and an ink blending tool being careful to not get any on it’s tail.

I added dots to the flowers with Nuvo Drops.

I mounted it with foam tape…love that stuff, don’t you? I did add an eye to the bunny with a black pen.  Which reminds me I need to order some more! hehe
