My Favorite Things Stamps...WSC # 167 & CTD283...Easter Wishes!


Hello stampin' friends! We are in the midst of a kitchen remodel and today the kitchen cupboards are going in...SO exciting! My house is a total disaster with everything from the kitchen in boxes on my dining room floor. There isn't much I could do and the toxic smell of the industrial strenght adhesive that the cabinet installer is using made me flee to my craftroom to make a card. I followed along with the My Favorite Things Stamps - Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch Challenge with this week's sketch MFTWSC167! I've also used the fabulous colour swatch over at The Color Throwdown - CTD283! These colours were perfect to pair with my new Easter stamps and Die-namics from the MFT March release that arrived yesterday!

I LOVE this gorgeous colour combo that they have over at the Color Throwdown!
I used MFT Heavyweight Card Stock in Steel Grey, Sour Apple, Tangy Orange and Primitive White!

 I couldn't wait to use my new MFT March release goodies that arrived yesterday! I made my card with MFT Heavyweight Card Stock in Primitive White, Steel Grey, Sour Apple and Tangy Orange. I stamped the Sour Apple panel with the NEW Wood Plank Background Stamp in Sour Apple Premium Dye Ink. I then cut the frame with the large rectangle panel from Blueprints 11 and cut out the opening with the Rectangle STAX and popped it up with dimensional tape.

I used my Fishtail Flags and Fishtail Layers STAX for the diagonal panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the NEW Easter Bunny Stamp set in Steel Grey and Tangy Orange Premium Dye Ink. I add the cute little bunny and a carrot cut with the coordinating Easter Bunny Die-namics. I stamped the bunny in Grout Grey Premium Dye Ink. I added a lasso of green twine and tucked a Mini Delicate Dollie under the bunny cut with the Mini Delicate Dollies Die-namics. Lastly, I sprinkled around a few silver sparkly Gum Drops.

I finished off the inside, of course...I used the Fishtail banner from the NEW Blueprins 13 and layered the cute little basket filled with eggs and carrots from the NEW Easter Bunny Stamp and Easter Bunny Die-namics over a Sour Apple circle panel stamped with the NEW Wood Plank Background Stamp. I cut the panel with the Stitched Circle STAX and layered the basket over a Mini Delicate Dollie. I stamped a sentiment on the tag from Blueprints 2 and tied it with green twine. 

Thanks SO much for stopping by and having a little look at my card for this week's MFTWSC167 and the Color Throwdown 283!
