Here is my next set of 4 cards from my 13-in-one-derful (redone) Cards 9-12 group. I put these on an Elegant Eggplant base to mix up the designs even more. I found it very striking. My excitement continued that the previous color palette worked perfectly. Adding the adorable bunny makes these uber cute and easy to cut with the Basket Builder Framelits. [Giggle]
A couple years ago I created my original 13-in-one-derful bundle of designs using the “Best of” Flowers stamp set. [You can see cards #9-12 here.] I used the Hydrangea stamp to create my own Designer Series Paper. This time I was playing with the “Basket Bunch” stamp set and created a page full of mini-eggs.
To add more texture I used the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on several of the Pear Pizzazz pieces. Also adding basic black framing layers can make your designs feel “framed” and add that finishing touch.
If you haven’t tried Wink of Stella you HAVE TO! After coloring the eggs I felt they needed a bit of shine. So I brushed Clear Wink of Stella over the colored areas. Amazing! Oh….to add a touch of shine to the upper left card I clear embossed the 1/8″ narrow Basic Black strip. It added just the perfect amount of shine and replaces the ribbon I used on the previous version. Sweet!
It was very nerve racking for me to start cutting the pieces, but I braved it and just LOVE how these turned out. You can download the cutting layout here.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a great weekend and happy stamping!
