This weeks challenge at Just Add Ink is a Sketch Challenge. I decided to make another Easter Card, because I have been meaning to use the Easter stamp from the Load of Love Accessories stamp set that I have. To make this card, it required a bit of work as there are many layers and a lot of cutting involved, but I do think it was worth the effort. I started with a base card of Whisper White and then applied a layer of Kiwi Kiss that I embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dot folder, on the bottom half of the card and on the top half I used some Bella Rose DSP, which I put two black brads in the top left corner. I then stamped a piece of cream textured card stock, multiple times with one of the trees from the Lovely As A Tree stamp set using Kiwi Kiss Ink. I then took a piece of red card stock, which I stamped two trucks from the Loads Of Love stamp set using Chocolate Chip Ink. I then cut out both trucks and with one of the trucks, I cut off the front of the truck, leaving what now looks like a trailer. With a Chocolate Chip marker I drew a line on the edge that was cut away from the truck to make it looked stamped. I also kept a small bit from the bottom of the truck to make the connector between the truck and the trailer. I then stamped the tyres 6 times. 3 times on Black cardstock and 3 times on Whisper White Cardstock using Chocolate Chip ink. I then cut out the out the black tyres and with the white tyres I only cut out the centres and layer them over the black tyre centres. I stamped the man from the Loads of Love Accessories stamp set twice, once on Whisper White cardstock and once on a scrap piece of Washington Apple DSP. With the eggs from the Load of Love accessories, I stamped them twice on a piece of scrap DSP that is mainly So Saffron in colour ( I got it in Blog Candy I won, so I dont know the name sorry). I cut out the eggs and put them aside. I then took a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock that I punched with the Scallop Border Punch and adhered to Bella Rose DSP and Embossed Kiwi Kiss cardstock. I followed this with a layer of Kiwi Kiss and then the textured cream cardstock that has the base of three trees from the Lovely As A Tree stamp set. I then adhered the truck, trailer, connector,tyres and eggs to the cardstock. I trimmed the shirt of the man stamped on Washington Apple DSP and layered it over the trimmed image of the man stamped on the Whisper White card stock. I then stamped the ‘Eggstra special easter wishes’ sentiment from the Loads of Love Accessories stamp set on Whisper White Cardstock, that I then trimmed and backed with a piece of Kiwi Kiss and Chocolate chip cardstock. I placed this in the lower right hand corner and there you have my Easter Card. I am going to give this card to my son since I borrowed his Load Of Love stamp set to make this card :).
