Hopping Around the World Blog Hop - Easter

Hi Crafters,

I hope you are having a lovely day.  The Hopping Around the World team are back with another global blog hop.  We are a group of international Stampin' Up! demonstrators who bring inspiration your way every month.  Our theme for this month's blog hop is Easter and if you've arrived here from the brilliant Rebecca-Jo's post you are on the right track.  

I was a bit stumped with this theme until I had a look through the Stampin' Up! annual catalogue.  I found the perfect stamp and die combo for the Easter theme using the Fable Friends stamp set and the Word Wishes dies.  I also decided to create a gatefold card to showcase the Jubilee Beauty dies.    

I cut two of the Jubilee Beauty panel dies and used these as a template for my gatefold card base.  I attached with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then went on to stamp and colour the rabbit.  I stamped in Sahara Sand on Fluid Watercolour Paper and then coloured using Flirty Flamingo and Crumb Cake inks picked up with an Aqua Painter.  To be honest the eyes went a little scary so the flowers are a good distraction!  The flowers were die cut from the Budding Blooms dies in Whisper White and coloured with Flirty Flamingo to co-ordinate.  I fussy cut the rabbit out and attached on one side with a little Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Here is a close-up but maybe don't look too closely at the colouring job!

I hope you are feeling inspired with all of our Easter makes.  To keep hopping, head to the very talented Jennifer's post.  If you get lost, there is a blog hop list below.  

Happy crafting,
