Happy Spring - SNSDC92

This week the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog gets to showcase the February Digi Stamp release.  There are 4 cute bunnies, a Spring Sentiment set and a Spring Add-on set being released this month.  Be sure to stop by the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog to see all the adorable images and to check out what the rest of the DT (including our 5 new DT members) have done with the new images.  Be sure to read to the end of this post to see how you could win the entire release.

This week's challenge is a 3-2-1 challenge.  The challenge is to use 3 of something, 2 of something and 1 of something.  I used 3 butterflies, 2 patterned papers (the sentiment and the background) and one bunny.

I got to play with 3 of the sets.....

 Bunny 2


 Spring Sentiments

 Spring Add-Ons

I chose to use this week's sketch from Mojo Monday (MOJO280) as my jumping off point for the card design.  I layered my patterned paper with  a strip of Bazzill embossed cardstock  and then cut it all out with one of the Spellbinders Grand Circle dies (3rd from the smallest).  There were so many layers I had to give a little help with my scissors to complete the circle.  I then adhered this to a plain white circle card base.  Some pearls and faux stitching finish off the background.

I coolored all the images with Copics.  I inked the edges and fussy cut the butterflies.  A glaze pen was used on the bunny's nose & eye and stickles give his tail some dimension . A glitter pen gives the butterfly wings, bodies and  the flower some sparkle. The image is printed on patterned paper and hand-cut.  The butterflies are all popped up with pop dots.  The sentiment and flower each have a pearl accent.

Cardstock:  Bazzill, Recollections, Copic, Georgia Pacific
Patterned paper:  Prima (Madeline)
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy Digis (Bunny 2, Spring Add-Ons, Spring Sentiment)
Ink:  Memento (Angel Pink, Desert Sand)
Copics:  bunny - E31, 35, 37, R20, C-1, W-1, B21, 23, YG03, 05; butterflies - Y17, BG10, 15
Embellishments/Tools:  pearls (The Paper Studio), Sakura Gelly Roll pen (Clear Star), Sakura Glaze pen, Spellbinders (Grand Circles, Deckled Rectangles Large & Small), Sharpie Fine Point Pen (brown), Stickles (Frosted Lace)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Love the detail in your card Steph - the layers, design and colours - it all works so well. I love all the cards on display on the SNSDC blog, as they are all so different even with the same stamp set. It has been fun for me, but challenging - I can only get better (I hope)!

The aquas and browns go wonderfully together! I don't often "think outside of the rectangle" so it was refreshing to see your circular card. The pearls are a great finishing touch.

What a sweet take on the 3-2-1. Your butterfly with the glitter really stands out and for me it said, "Carole, spring is nearly here". That of couse is a fantasy.
Your colors remind me of Robins' eggs which once again gave me a second lift. Your card has been a blessing to me and many others.
We love that you have taken time to share your wonderful work with us at Word Art Wednesday.
