Stamping With Friends Easter/Spring Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamping With Friends March Blog Hop as we showcase projects for Easter and Spring. Our talented Design Team Members will be sharing their wonderful projects and ideas to help inspire you to create your own beautiful projects for the new season.
For my card design today, I decided to create a Spring themed Easter card using the Easter Friends stamp set from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. I paired it with the Color & Contour Bundle, which has some wonderful Spring flower images as well as scalloped rectangles that are perfect for creating the focal layer. For the background, I chose one of the designs from the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper, which is perfect for soft and pretty cards for Spring.

Easter chick stamped with Easter Friends stamp set and fussy cut
This cute Easter card is a wonderful way to showcase pretty Spring colors and I love the way the flowers pop against the Mint Macaron striped background created by the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper. For the focal image, I stamped the cute chick image from the Easter Friends stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with the Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends Combo Packs. I heat embossed the sentiment with Gold embossing powder onto the scalloped rectangle and stamped the grass with Mint Macaron Classic ink along the bottom left corner to help ground the chick. Using the splatter stamp image from the Color & Contour stamp set, I lightly stamped with Crumb Cake Classic ink, stamping off once to lighten the color, along the bottom edge to create the illusion of the ground. I fussy cut the chick and added it to the bottom left side with Stampin' Dimensionals. To create the card design, I attached the Fresh Freesia and Daffodil Delight flowers to the card front in the top left corner and the Pale Papaya flower to the bottom right corner. I then attached the focal layer to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals, lining up the the corners with the flowers. I attached the Polished Pink flower to the top left corner of the scalloped rectangle and added a Stampin' Dimensional to attach the top part of the flower to the card front. To complete the card design, I added several of the Brushed Brass Butterflies for a touch of bling. This soft and pretty Easter card is so bright and cheerful and sure to brighten someone's day.
