4/3/22 Top 3 at International Art & Soul!
Happy Monday, everybody! Hope you had a great weekend and your weather is warming up… even just a little bit! It’s absolutely gorgeous here and I almost feel guilty for not being outdoors enjoying it! I’m thrilled to be back on the Clear Scraps blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a fun Easter home decor project featuring our Medium DIY Egg Pallet Shape, Easter Chipboard Word Title and Bunnies Chipboard Embellishments. Spring is my second favorite season and I love everything that Easter represents!
I started by covering all three sections of the Medium DIY Egg Pallet Shape with a pretty pastel plaid patterned paper and the two narrow sections of the mounting stick that are visible from the front with CutCardStock Pop-Tone Grape Jelly cardstock. I always use Bearly Art precision craft glue to adhere the patterned paper to the pallet shape and run my brayer back and forth over it several times, and it sticks very nicely. I fashioned a small bow from a Really Reasonable Ribbon pink ribbon scrap and adhered it to the top with Ranger Distress Collage Medium.
Next I worked on the Easter Chipboard Word Title. I first colored it with a teal alcohol marker, and then applied Versamark (from my dirty ‘grunge’ Versamark pad) and Ranger Bridal Tinsel embossing powder, heat embossed it and let it cool down. I then applied Dare 2B Artzy Paradise ink directly from the ink cube, more Versamark (from my grunge pad) and Hero Arts Clear embossing powder, and heat embossed it a second time. I adhered the Easter word at an angle toward the top. I stamped the bunny sentiment in Catherine Pooler Midnight ink on a scrap of Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock, cut it with a My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics, and adhered it on 3-mm-thick adhesive tabs just under the Easter word.
I covered the Bunnies Chipboard Embellishments in Colorbok Bright pink and yellow-orange cardstock, added small cottontails made from cotton balls, and adhered them to the bottom center. I removed the prongs from three colored egg brads and adhered them at the bottom with Ranger Distress Collage Medium. The final touch was adding several YNS purple glitter Gumdrops.
And one more peek… super happy with how this turned out! It’s so simple but really packs a punch… and oh, those colors! These were definitely fun products to play with!
