Guest Designer for AAA Cards

Hi there.  Today I am excited to be guest designing for Game #87 Shiny Spring at AAA Cards.  It is a spring theme CAS card challenge with the optional twist of adding a shiny element.

Although I don’t send Easter cards, Easter did inspire this hoppy bunny birthday card.

Stamped the bunny, flower, bee and bee trail with Intense Black ink on a X-press It paper Stitched Rectangle and coloured with Copics.  Masked the bunny, flower and the upper half of the panel then blended a patch of grass beneath the bunny with Mowed Lawn distress ink.

Leaving the masks on the bunny and flower, removed the upper half mask and crested the cloud background with a DIY diecut cloud stencil, a mini blending tool and Tumbled Glass distress ink.  Removed the remaining masks.

For some shiny elements, added clear Wink of Stella to the flower and bee’s wings (was a little difficult to capture in a photo).  Heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set with Versafine black ink and clear glitter embossing powder.  Used gray Copics to add the shadow under the bunny. Mounted the stitched panel to a white top folding card base and added three Crystal Clear sequins to finish.
