Happy Easter (Stamp Tailoring)

Mo Manning’s illustration for Penny Black’s You Are A Peach instantly had me thinking of all the little things this girl could be carrying.

With Easter just around the corner, I "tailored" her finding a holiday basket filled with treats.  The peach was substituted with the basket from Spring Day and a bunny from Sweet Dreams.

A subtle pattern of hydrangeas from Flower Festival was stamped in Habanero VersaFine on the Summer Sun cardstock.  The Rose Garden cardstock was rubbed with Love Letter Memento and the soft glow on the white cardstock is Peanut Brittle Memento.

Tip/Hint:  Enhance the depth of elevated elements on a card by using different thicknesses of dimensional foam.  In this sample 1/16th inch foam was used between the card base and the Rose Garden cardstock and 1/8th inch foam elevates the fussy cut girl.

Happy Friday,
