Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Hop - February Subscription Products
Hello crafty friends! Thanks for stopping by. This post is part of the weekly Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team blog hop. Our assignment this week was to use some of the February subscription products! I chose to use the stencil and the stamp of the month. If you haven't seen the full stencil yet, it's actually an egg shape with the pretty swirls and dots. The stamp is the cute little bunny and the words "Hoppy Spring". It also includes a little peep shaped stamp, but I didn't use it for this project.
On instagram I spotted a really cool "wiper" card on the account @alilovescardmaking and I had never tried one before! I searched for "wiper card" on YouTube and watched a few tutorials to get an idea for the mechanism. I cut the main card base pieces from Lunch Bag cardstock, and then cut an Alabaster cardstock panel to fit on the front. I used Honeysuckle and Rouge inks blended over the stencil, with the Rouge concentrated in the center.
I stamped the bunny on Aqua Pigment paper and heat embossed it with Gilded EP. I painted it with Pink aqua pigment and then fussy cut it when it was dry. I used the fussy cutting scissors to cut grass shapes into a small piece of green inked paper left over from another project, and glued it to the piece of cardstock that pops up out of the top, along with the fussy cut bunny.
I put the stenciled card front on, and then ran a piece of twine through the open middle of the card and then tied it in the front. I heat embossed the sentiment with Alabaster EP onto a strip of Honeysuckle cardstock and trimmed it into a banner shape, adhering it to the front with foam tape. I stuck a one-inch strip of Honeysuckle cardstock onto the side flap as well.
