To celebrate spring I wanted to make a card using the super cute and versatile Hello Bluebird’s Spring Gatherings stamp set. This is my third time featuring this stamp set and I think it’s just perfect for any spring card you need to make!
On this card I’m featuring the adorable little sheep from Spring Gatherings along with the yummy chocolate bunny, the cute chick, and tulip images. I started by stamping all these images onto Neenah Solar White, 110 lb, cardstock with Ink on 3’s Blackout Ink and then colored them using Copic markers.
Creating the Scene
To make the sky I wanted something a little different so I used Taylored Expressions’ Hearts Masking Stencils and lightly ink blended a piece of white cardstock using Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide inks. Next, I used a die from Lawn Fawn’s Puffy Cloud Borders to die cut clouds out of white cardstock and Lawn Fawn’s Pearlescent Vellum. I adhered the clouds to the top of the sky panel. Lastly, I created hills using a die from Lawn Fawn’s Grassy Hillside Borders die set and ink blended with Bundle Sage and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide inks.
With all my scene elements created, I layered the grass to the bottom of the sky panel being sure to tuck the sheep, chick, and tulips behind the different grass layers. I placed the chocolate bunny into the sheep hands – so cute!
Sentiment and Finishing Touches
For my sentiment, I stamped one from Hello Bluebird’s Rainbow Script sentiment set onto white cardstock and using VersaFine Clair’s Nocturne ink and once dry blended Bundle Sage Distress Oxide ink to make it match the grass. Lastly, I die cut the sentiment with one of the dies from Simon Says Stamp’s Sentiment Labels dies.
I also added a bit of shine using a Spectrum Noir Crystal Clear Sparkle pen to the sheep’s bow and then gave the sheep and chick a bit more life by using Sakura Gelly Roll to add dimension and shine to their eyes. Next, I added Glossy Accents to the sheep and chick noses. Lastly, I added some white gel pen accent using a Sakura Gelly Roll pen and a few more grass elements with a Copic marker.
Thank you for stopping by and spending a little time with me today!
