Hellloooo everyone! This week has just been getting crazier and crazier for me - however I FINALLY got my cards made for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge:

I decided to squeeze in a couple more Easter cards before the weekend is upon us:
These are 4-Bar (3 1/2 x 4 7/8") Sized Note Cards
I absolutely LOVE the Neat & Tangled Cottontail Cuties stamp set. I finally got my hands on it (b/c I hesitated the first time and it sold out - story of my crafting life LOL) not too long ago and wanted to make a point of using it!
I stamped the images onto Neenah Solar White 80 card stock with SSS Intense Black Ink and coloured them in with Copic markers. It's hard to tell in the pictures but I went over some of the areas with my Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Overlay brush pen and added some white dots and highlights with a white gel pen.
To get the soft backgrounds I made my card bases from Bristol Smooth card stock and sponged Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink onto it (it went on like a dream - so smooth and perfect LOL - if you've ever struggled with sponging inks I HIGHLY recommend trying it on Bristol Smooth). I splattered on a little water after sponging the ink to get a little texture.
I sponged the ink onto the bottom insides of both cards, stamped sentiments from the same Cottontail Cutie stamp set and added the remaining stamped and coloured images and that was it!
To see how this card came together check out my video below:

I get asked a lot about where to purchase the supplies I use in my videos and blog posts. I list all the supplies I use at the end of my posts (below) or in the description box directly below my video on YouTube. If the product images have sets of letters below the image it means there's more than one place it can be purchased. SSS = Simon Says Stamp, AZ = Amazon, MFT = My Favourite Things, EH = Ellen Hutson LLC, SnS = Scrap N Stamp (Canada) etc. Compensated affiliate links used when possible at no extra cost to you. Affiliate linking is what keeps my blog and YouTube channel up and running and enables me to work from home with my kids! I appreciate your support more than words can say!
Items marked with an asterisk (*) have been sent by a store/manufacturer (with no obligation on my part to use/review - I only use and share what I personally love). Everything else I purchase myself!
