Sweet Stamps: Easter



Sweet Stamps Challenge #8:

Easter


Here's my creation:
 I used "Tulip bunny" for this card, an adorable stamp from Sweet Stamps!  I also used the stamp "Happy Easter" for this card.

Other Sweet Stamp Products Used:
Shades Dye Ink "Pansy Purple"
Soft Pink Rhinestones
Nellie's Flower Multi Frame Die
Daisy & Swirl Embossing Folder
Creative Inspirations Paint: Light Purple and Sage

-------------------------------------
I also have a fun little tutorial for you, something else I like to do with the Creative Inspirations Paint:

1. I first used the "Daisy & Swirl" Embossing Folder to embossing my paper.


2. I then like to use a little paint brush to add the CI Paint to the embossed parts - I used "Light Purple" (A toothpick works great for tiny parts)


A great way to add some shimmer to your projects and to make your own paper!!

-------------------------------------

I also like to use cotton balls to add shimmer to elements.

1. Get an element you would like to use, in this case I cut a swirl from my Cricut.

2. Lightly dip the cotton ball in the cover and as you can see in my photo, I first dab the cotton ball on my scrap paper so that the paint doesn't go on my element as a big glob, rather just a light texture..

Finished element - I used "Sage"

I also used "Light Purple" to add some shimmer to the bunnies bow!

-------------------------------------

The things you can do with these paints is endless!  They're  alot of fun to play with!

Another great creation Kendra! I love how you added the shimmer to the embossed paper, bow and embellishments - the CI paints are fabulous and you always do a great job adding that extra sparkle! I really like the nice soft colors you used to color Tulip Bunny too.
