Fable Friends Easter Bunny Card for #PCC332

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have another fun card for you for this weeks Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge.  My card this weeks uses the Fable Friends stamp set.  This is just the cutest spring, child, and Easter set.  By changing the sentiment it could be for any occasions.  Here's a look at my card.

And here's the sketch that inspired my card today.  You can click on the sketch image to visit the Paper Craft Crew page and check out what all the other designers came up with. 

Tips & Tricks: 

I started out by stamping the bunny from the Fable Friends stamp set in tuxedo black ink, because I knew I was going to be doing a little Stampin' Blend coloring.  I used Smoky Slate (light & dark), Granny Apple Green (light & dark), and a little Petal Pink (light & dark).  I then used the color lifter to soften some of the petal pink in his belly and some of the shadows.  
I layered the bunny on a piece of Berry Burst Cardstock and then layered on a piece of Smoky Slate Cardstock.  I stamped the Easter Greetings in Granny Apple green on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and layered it the same way berry burst and smoky slate.  The smoky slate layer for the sentiment was cut out using the stitched shapes framelits.  
I popped the sentiment up using a couple stampin' dimensionals.  I used the 2017-2019 In Color Designer Series Paper in Berry Burst as the background. I used a small strip on the inside of the card.  To finish off the card I added a few basic rhinestones three of them I colored with Granny Apple Green dark.

Botanical Butterfly, Hold on To Hope Mash Up Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to be sharing with you the card that I designed for this month's Church Card Ministry.  I used pieces of the Botanical Butterfly designer series paper and the Hold on To Hope Stamp Set and the Cross of Hope Framelits.  Here's a look at my card.

This is a great card design to use up scraps of designer series paper.  I say this because all the strips of different sizes and you just glue them down to a piece of whisper white or scrap cardstock that's 4 x 5 1/4.  Once they are all glued down you just trim off the excess and mat it on your chosen mat color.  
That goes on your card base mine is from a piece of whisper white thick cardstock; that I cut down to 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.  I then stamped the little butterfly from the Hold on to Hope stamp set and die cut it out with the matching framelits.  I stamped the sentiment on a piece of whisper white and created the fish tail banner.  The sentiment came from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set from the Annual Catalog.  

The cross was cut out of four different scraps of cardstock some of which I were left over stamped pieces that were mess ups.  I layered four crosses up before placing them on the starburst that I had punched.  I placed a little of the Saleabration Organdy ribbon in highland heather behind and around the cross.  You could totally change the sending prayers sentiment for a happy Easter and have a super cute and easy Easter card.
