Basket Bunch - Many Mini Thanks

Hello and welcome. Today's card has been inspired by two card challenges: Colour INKspiration #02 Challenge and the Global Design Project #72 Case the Designer - Krista Frattin. 

The banner below with the gorgeous succulents is the colour inspiration and all five colours have to be used in the project. They are, Wisteria Wonder, Soft Sky, Mint Macaron, Whisper White and Garden Green. 

This combination was quite challenging at first, but I find that having the physical Stampin' Up! ink pad colours in front of me helps get a visual feel for the colours and how they could be used. Let the colours speak to you so to speak hehe.

The shades of green with the soft sky has been translated to creating this cute grass field scene with the little bunny and chick. The Basket Bunch Bundle is one of my favourites in the Occasions catalogue, as it's just cuteness overload. It's perfect for colouring in to suit any style and comes with matching dies that makes it even easier to use.

The layout has been inspired Krista's gorgeous card above and have interpreted the leaves for the lace ribbon. The base card front has been embossed using the Falling Petals embossing folder and just gives a subtle tone on tone textured interest. 

To create this scene, I have used several wonderful sets from the Occasion catalogue including: 

The Stitched Shapes framelits used to create the background base panel as well as the garden green grass. The grass has been created using the oval stitched frame to get that cute arch/hill and has that lovely stitched border edge. The sides has been trimmed to fit within the frame. Great way to get more use of the dies.

The Mint Macaron grass has been die cut twice using the grass die from the Basket Builder framelits.

The Whisper White clouds have been die cut using the Up & Away thinlits.

The cute mini envelope and scallop insert is created using the Love Notes framelits.
Wisteria has been used from the envelope and sentiment.

The sentiments used is from 'Suite Sentiments' set and was and perfectly coordinate with the Love Notes framelit dies. The Many Mini Thanks has been white heat embossed.
The insert in the envelope can be taken out and adds that great interactive quality to the card.

The little leaves blowing in the wind is from the Basket Bunch bundle and has been coloured in with Mint Macaron using an aqua painter.

The little chick has also been watercoloured in with Soft Sky.

The Soft Sky has been ink blended using a round mini ink blending tool and the soft ombre look adds a special touch.

I hope you have enjoyed and found inspiration. Both card challenges was certainly great way to get started. Having both colour and layout to work with is a bonus, so why not check out both these challenges and have fun and take part. The supplies are available on my online store and listed below. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and hope to see you next time. Happy Crafting!
