The word you’re looking for is “ADORABLE”!! The images in the Fable Friends stamp set are just the cutest!!! They remind me of the images from Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit stories and are perfect for any Spring, Easter, or baby project.
I colored the rabbit and squirrel with Stampin’ Blends and fussy cut them out with Paper Snips. I wanted the Rabbit image to be bumped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals so I needed to trim off his whiskers for that image to look good. To make sure the whiskers remain, I stamped the same image on the panel behind the rabbit so the whiskers show.
The squirrel was also fussy cut which allowed me to position him anywhere on the card as I was designing the card.
One of my favorite color combinations is Poppy Parade with any of the blues. Here the blue is Balmy Blue. I used the visual rule of thirds: “people are more engaged when items are grouped or used in 3’s”. There are 3 items of Poppy Parade, the background panel, the flower, and the rabbit’s shirt, and also 3 items of Balmy Blue the gingham background, the main panel border, and the squirrel’s hat and outfit.
I masked off the greeting, “Easter greetings,” to rearrange the words and have them fit on the Old Olive panel. First I applied tape over the word “greeting”, inked it in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, removed the tape and stamped “Easter”. I then repeated the process applying tape over “Easter” and inked the word ‘greeting’, removed the tape and stamped next to “Easter”.
I hope you liked my project. Please make sure you leave a comment with the hashtag #stampitcontest to win the Notes of Kindness Card Kit, and visit each of the bloggers on this hop!
