Stampin Up! Easter Friends

 Sketch Challenge

This was a challenging challenge! When I saw this sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, I was stumped. What could I put in those circles? I looked through all my newest stamp sets for ones I had not used yet. I went with the Easter Friends because I thought the little chick in different colors would look like a Marshmallow Peeps.

I wanted to use a piece of the Designers Series Paper (DSP) from the Sunshine and Rainbows DSP. I love the way Stampin' Up!'s DSP coordinates so easily with their cardstock. All I have to do is look at the back of the paper pack and it lists the coordinating colors. For this card, I choose, Flirty Flamingo, Mango Melody, and Pool Party.

I used the new Gingham Embossing Folder because it was the closest looking to a basket weave.I used the Scalloped Contours dies to cut the mat from Flirty Flamingo Cardstock.

I had to play around with the Peeps/Chicks a bit to get them to look the way I wanted. I fussy cut the chicks and used dimensionals to pop them up. Underneath the chicks, I stamped a matching chick and used my Stampin' Blends to color each circle blue and then I glued it to another white circle for some contract against the blue card base.

The Sunshine and Rainbows DSP is a Sale-A-Bration exclusive. You can get it for FREE with qualifying purchase. But you need to hurry because it is only available until Sale-A-Bration is over (2-28-22) or while supplies last.
