Retro Rubber Sketch Challenge No. 59 - Easter Card with Unity Stamps
Hello everyone! I hope everyone had a great weekend! A few weeks ago I was chosen as Top Pick on the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog and they asked me to be their "guest designer" today. I am over the moon to be working with such a talented team again on this week's Challenge No. 59, which is a sketch challenge -
As soon as I saw the sketch I knew exactly what die I was going to use and I knew that I wanted to make an Easter card that has been itching to get out of my system for months now. I am using a stamp called Buttercup by Unity Stamp Co. that I bought in 2015, to make cards for Easter in 2016, which never happened! LOL So I am using it this year for some of my cards.
I started with a top folding A2 sized card of white cardstock. To the front I adhered a piece of patterned paper and distressed the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink. Then I used the angled die from the Custom Panels Elle-ments Die by Avery Elle on a piece of dark purple cardstock and on a piece of white cardstock. I cut them so that there is about 1/8" border. I distressed the edges of the dark purple cardstock and adhered it to the card front.
Then, using the piece of white cardstock and a stamp positioner, I stamped the image of Buttercup the bunny in black ink. I also stamped two of the eggs on a piece of scrap white cardstock. Then I colored them all in with a variety of Copic markers.
Lastly, I distressed the edges and adhered the white cardstock to the purple, adhered the eggs with some pop dots, stamped the phrase on a piece of orange cardstock, which I cut using the Word Window Punch (Stampin Up, Retired) an d adhered this also with some pop dots.
I hope you enjoyed this Easter card and sketch. If you would like to add your own project to this week's challenge, just click HERE to be taken right to Challenge No. 59. Maybe you will be a "Top Pick" soon!! Until next time -
