Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!
This month, the theme is Cute Critters. We really hope that you will be inspired by all the amazing creations the Pals are sharing with you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
The Easter Friends Stamp Set has such cute critters! This is Hop Hop the bunny, with a surprise “pop-up” on the inside.
Here’s the pop-up surprise, starring Peep, the chick.
To make the pop-up, begin with Highland Heather Cardstock, 4 1/4″ X 11″. Next, cut Flowering Fields Designer Paper, 3 3/4″ X 10 3/4″, scored at 4 1/4″, 5 1/4″, and 6 1/4″. When you fold on the score lines, it will look like a mountain in the middle. Next, glue the bottom half of the DSP to the bottom of the card base. Then, fold flat, and glue the top half of the DSP to the top half of the card base. It works if your borders are even, and you can test before gluing to make sure it forms a right angle.
The sentiment is from the Easter Friends Stamp Set, stamped in Gorgeous Grape Ink, cut with a Scalloped Contours Die, and glued to the fold along the bottom.
Peep was stamped in Memento Black Ink, colored with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends, fussy cut, and glued in place.
Now, back to the front, which Hop Hop says is the most important. (We’ll let him think that). He is from the Easter Friends Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock. After coloring him with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends, I used Paper Snips to set him free.
Easter Blessings is from the Daffodil Daydream Stamp Set, stamped in Gorgeous Grape, and cut with the smallest Scalloped Contours Die. After gluing Hop Hop’s feet to the top of the sentiment label, I attached him with Dimensionals.
The background is Subtles 6″ X 6″ Designer Paper in plaid Highland Heather, cut with the second largest Scalloped Contours Die. It is layered on Basic White Cardstock, cut with the largest Scalloped Contours Die.
To add some color, I used a Horizon Die to cut some grass from Beauty of the Earth Designer Paper. I thought I was finished, but Hop Hop said he wanted to hold a tulip, so I gave him one, cut from the Flowering Fields Designer Paper. Now, he is happy, and excited for Easter!
Thanks for hopping by.
More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on [second Wednesday]. Our theme will be Fabulous Flowers when our Design Team creates a project using any of the many beautiful flowers in our catalogs.
Until then, have fun in your craft space.
