Newton’s Nook – Hoppy Greetings

Hello friends! Today I’m over on the Newton’s Nook blog sharing this adorable Easter card I created with a fun new background idea that popped into my head.

The whole card started with those fun circles. They are the negative piece that comes from the Slimline Frames & Portholes die. Every time I used that set, I keep the circles in a sleeve if I’m not using them on the current card. I happened to have a stash of them and though this would be a fun way to use them.

I stamped each one with the Spring Roundabout stamp set in different areas so each one is a little different. Using the same ink I stamped the image I inked up the edges with a blending brush so they weren’t stark white. Then I arranged them on the patterned paper with foam squares and trimmed off the excess.

Next, I stamped and colored images from Hoppy Greetings with my copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I added the images with foam squares so the dimension would help the bunny scene stand out from the background a little and moved on to finishing touches.

I kept those pretty simple too. Just adding glossy accents the the bunny’s nose and toe beans, flower center and parts of the Easter eggs.

This was a very fun card to create and it was also really cool to use up something that I’ve been saving to for a while too.
