Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop - Charlotte/Easter

Welcome to our Blog Hop as members of the Stampers with an Attitude Team, within Close To My Heart, showcase artwork using the Charlotte product line or create something with an Easter theme.  Guess which one I chose?!  No peeking! :)

If you are coming from Catherine's Blog, you are on the right track.  Should you get lost along the way you can find a complete list of participants by clicking here.

The card I created contains a few favorites right now.  Can you guess what they are?!  The papers and colors from the Kaleidoscope paper pack scream Easter/Spring to me so I chose to incorporate them.  I also random-stamped a piece of Pixie cardstock, using the fun "Friend in Me" stamp set (pictured below) which is also where the 3-D floral image is from.  I colored it, and shaded the tone-on-tone flowers, with our ShinHan Markers and also used our Metallic Gold Marker for a little accent on the flower center.  I had never used it before but don't tell anyone!  I can tell it will get some good use now.
The bunny was stamped using the Spring Critters stamp set.  I paperpieced the bunny's banner by stamping the image again on the Pear patterned paper, cutting it out and gluing it on top of the original image.  Too fun, right?!  The bunny was colored in using the Light Pink ShinHan Marker and the lighter areas were generated by using the Color Blender Marker which I love!
If you do not know why these images have a blue outline around them it is because they can be cut using our new Thin Cuts!  (We have four sets of them that were released at the first of the month.)  Place the image on your Cuttlebug or other diecut machine and crank them through.  Then use the stamps to create the image that you can decorate as you choose.  No fussy-cutting required!
Bling is always a necessity on every piece of artwork so I include some White and Gold Ribbon and Gold Heart Puffie.  They were the perfect finishing touch to this happy card!
This is the Friend in Me stamp set.  LOVE the sentiments and flowers and even if you do not have a sister like I do, it is very versatile!  I cannot wait to use it on other creations!
Thank you for visiting my blog.  Let me know what you think about my card creation.  I would totally appreciate it and then head on over to Tammy's Blog to view her artwork.

Happy hoppin'!
