How To Color The Stamps From February 2024 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Sweet Springtime - Stampin' Up!

Today I am sharing with you my fourth set of alternative cards using the February 2024 Paper Pumpkin Kit called Sweet Springtime. The projects from this kit perfect for this time of year, it creates a total of 6 greeting card 3 in two different designs, and 3 gift boxes. If you would like to watch me unbox the kit and create these projects click on the link below.

Each month I take the contents from the paper pumpkin kits and make alternative projects. My cards are easy to follow and can be made by both experienced or new paper crafter. You may need just a couple other products to complete them. You can follow along with me using supplies you already have or purchase any products you see me use from my online store. All links are below.

These two cards use both the bunny and chick stamps. Today I will show you how I colored each image with Stampin’ Blend Markers.

Coloring The Stamps – Bunny & Chicks

1- Stamp two Bunnies & two Chicks on Basic White Cardstock in Early Espresso ink.

2- Color the Chicks with Dark Daffodil Delight Blend Marker along the feathers - top of the head and back and the feet & beak. Use the Light Marker for the front - belly section. Use Light Crumb Cake Blend Marker to add shadows, you can add Dark Crumb Cake too just sparingly.

3- I wanted a White Bunny so I used the Light Crumb Cake Blend Marker to add shadows and color the the tail. Use the Dark Crumb Cake to deepen the shadows under the Bunny. Add Light Petal Pink inside the ears, with Dark Petal Pink at the base of the ears & on nose.

4- Fussy cut all images out.

Card #1

1- Cut the Pink Check Pattern to 4” x 5 ¼” and add to the center of the Petal Pink Cardbase.

2- Add the Wreath Die cut to the middle a little above center with dimensionals.

3- Add one Bunny to the left, inside the Wreath with dimensionals.

4- Cut a ½” x 2” section from the Pink Envelope Flap. Stamp the greeting in Early Espresso on the light Crumb Cake side and angle the ends. Add over the Wreath & Bunny with dimensionals.

5- Add three White Dots.

Card #2

1- Cut a 5 ½” section from the leftover Box Template. Separate the Pink from the Green pattern. Emboss the Green Flower Pattern with any embossing folder to cover the score lines (I used the crosshatch pattern from the Basics 3D pack). Add this to the right side of the cardbase.

2- Layer the Daffodil Delight ¼” strip over the area where the cardbase and pattern paper meet.

3- Round the corners of the Lemon Lolly piece. Then stamp your greeting in Early Espresso ink on the top. Wrap around and tie a bow on the left side under the greeting.

4- Add the Bunny to the right below the Twine with dimensionals, and the Chicks to the left with dimensionals.

5- Fussy cut out three Flowers from the leftover Box Template piece. You can use the ones along the edge, just hide the straight side under something. Add them around the images.

6- Add the Lemon Lolly piece to the left on the cardbase with dimensionals.

All Done
