Hi friends! Happy Thursday! I’m delighted to welcome back special guest Cheiron Brandon to our blog with this adorable trio of cards that is bright and happy and great for a multitude of occasions! Read on for more details, and enjoy!
Hello there crafty friends it’s Cheiron Brandon here and I am thrilled to share a set of notecards with you using some of the latest products from Tim Holtz. I am definitely ready to welcome some spring weather and thought it would be fun to have some springy cards on hand. I used the new Tim Holtz Bunny Stitch dies. I wanted to create a set of cards that was not just for Easter. This bunny die set comes with little accessories (egg, carrot, and heart) so I cut each one from a different surface. I cut the egg from Yupo paper and colored it with Alcohol Ink for a real dyed egg look, for the carrot I cut from Metallic Kraft stock, and the heart I cut with a piece of felt.
For the bunnies, I cut each one from Kraft Cardstock and layered them onto a piece of Black Kraft Stock that I had sanded on the edges with a Sanding Disk. If you have not tried these, they work with the Ranger Ink blending tools and just stick on to the end like the foam or felt. They are so easy to use. I added the little stitches to each bunny that I had also cut from Black Kraftstock.
To assemble the cards I picked some springy colors of Distress Oxides and stamped the big circle image from the Brushstrokes stamp set onto a notecard, then added a sentiment to each one from the Crazy Talk set. I adhered each of the bunnies to the card with foam squares and added the egg, carrot or heart to make a quick and easy set of notecards. These were so fun to create, I may have to make another set!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Cheiron for being our guest!
