Inlay Die Cut Easter Card feat. Little Painters – Hello Bluebird

Hi everyone! Easter is just around the corner so I made this cute card with the Little Painters from Hello Bluebird. I got this stamp set last year for free with an order, just after Easter. So at that time, it was too late to make Easter cards, so I was very happy I got to pull it out now.

First I stamped the images from the Little Painters stamp set on Perfect Colouring paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I also wanted to add more decorative items to the card, so I also stamped some flowers and eggs from the Spring Gatherings stamp set. After stamping, I colored all the images with my Copic markers:

  • Yellows: Y11, Y13, Y18, YR24
  • Pinks: RV000, R81, R83
  • Purples: RV000, V01, V12
  • Bunnies: E50, E30, E31, E33, E11, E00, E000, R22

For the background, I ink blended Distress Oxide Milled Lavender, Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass, and Kitsch Flamingo on white cardstock. To add more interest, I created dots with the Lawn Fawn Bubble Background stencil and Lawn Fawn Yeti Ink, Distress Oxide Kitsch Flamingo and Milled Lavender. Next I also added splatters with white acrylic paint.

This background I then die cut with the Slim Fancy Fence from Mama Elephant. I love the decorative border from this die set. For the sentiment, I used the Headliner Alphas from Mama Elephant and created an inlay look. So I die cut the sentiment out of the background, and I popped up the sentiment with 2 layers of white cardstock.

With the Slim Window Dressing creative cuts, I die cut a piece of grass out of white cardstock and ink blended Distress Oxide Bundled Sage on top. I’m loving this green color as it is more muted and perfect for pastel colored cards. Now all my elements were done and I could assemble the card. To adhere the images, I used a mixture of liquid glue, plus thin and regular foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives to create dimension.

I hope you also like this card and it gave you inspiration. Thank you for stopping, and see you next time!
