Easter Bunny

It's Laurie again, and I'm back with another layout using the A Rustic Spring kit! I almost veered away from the traditional spring theme, but I had this extra photo of my daughter with the Easter bunny, and I really wanted to use the Prima Shabby Chic Treasures Rabbits on a layout about it, so that's what I ended up doing.


I'm also rather excited about this one because I broke out my heat tool to use with the Blue Fern Studios Imagine Ink Embossing Powder Forest on the Creative Embellishments Archway and chipboard words.


The papers on this one are 49 and Market Tattered PlaygroundFab Scraps Love Grows Here, and Bo Bunny Cottontail Festive and Hippity Hop. All four collections played so nicely together!

And I did a big 'ole mixture of flowers in my embellishment clusters using the 49 and Market Blossom Blends Bluebell49 and Market Shimmer and Shine Blush Jardin Secret (my faves!), and Prima Flowers Relics & Artifacts Blushing Bouquet.


And it wouldn't be a layout of mine lately without a little bit of misting splatter. For this one, I used the Shimmerz Spritz Plum Pudding. It splattered well, but the splatters were small, so you can't really tell unless you're looking at the layout up close.


There's more to come from this collection, and I'm having fun playing around and experimenting! While you're staying tuned, don't forget to visit The International Scrapbook Garden store and purchase A Rustic Spring kit of your own!

Thanks for looking!

Hi, Victoria back again with another card from the Fairy Garden Kit: A Rustic Spring Bonus Paper for card making.  I did grab on element to alter from the last kit and added a key from my personal stash otherwise you can make this exactly with items from the jam packed kit!  The burlap is cut from a generous piece in the main kit, and you'll find the twine and flowers in the main kit.  I modified the flower a little by painting it with the Coral Reef Inklingz from the Mixed Media Kit for the month.  I also altered a circle behind the clock face and flower, just peeking out with the Sunny Yellow Mica Powder from Prima.  What an amazing product when used with crazing collage paste.

The Ingredients for the card:
White card stock card
Patterned Paper: 4 x 5 1/4 inches
Patterned paper three 3/8 inch strips cut to graduating length
Patterned paper:  Circle painted with distress collage medium and sprinkled with Prima Mica Powder
Burlap: 3 x 3 inch square fray the edges with your fingers as desired
Prima: Resin Clock face painted with Coral Reef Inklingz and distress collage medium in crazing
Kaiser craft Paper Bloom:  Painted lightly with Coral Reef Inklingz

Layer as shown.  I used Mod Podge as my primary adhesive to adhere all of the parts to the card.
The embellishment is burlap, decorated circle, clock, key, flower and twine.

Have a fun time creating!

See you again soon!

~ Victoria
