Hip Hip Hooray

This week’s blogger challenge theme is spring. I used this week’s Mojo Monday sketch and stamps from Papertrey Ink to put this cheery design together.

Hip Hip Hooray-designed by Lori Tecler-Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Papertrey InkI picked a piece of striped paper from a spring patterned paper pad as my starting point. It’s adhered to a pink panel over a piece of green dot embossed cardstock. I added a little strip of lace along the edge of the green cardstock for some texture, too.

The “hip hip hooray” sentiment from the Fillable Frames #3 set was stamped in green ink on a cream panel. With the seemingly endless winter we’ve had, it seemed like an appropriate sentiment to welcome the arrival of spring! I matted the sentiment panel on a piece of pink cardstock, then adhered it over the striped and embossed panels. I die cut a bunny from white cardstock and stamped the matching bunny image from the Polka Dot Parade #1 set on the die cut piece in kraft colored pigment ink. The tail was covered with white flock, then adhered to the bunny with foam tape. I added the finished bunny to the corner of the sentiment panel, again with foam tape.

The panel was wrapped with some green baker’s twine and finished off with a bow. I added a trio of aqua enamel dots to fill in the white space on the sentiment panel and add a final pop of fresh spring color.

Polka Dot Parade #1 and Fillable Frames #3 stamp sets, Sweet Blush and Spring Moss cardstock, Polka Dot Parade #1 die (Papertrey Ink); Memento Luxe Pear Tart and Toffee Crunch inks (Tsukineko); Time for Spring 6x6 paper pad (Fancy Pants); Spotted embossing folder (Lifestyle Crafts); cream trim (Hobby Lobby); olive baker’s twine (Timeless Twine); white flock (Stampendous); enamel dots (Michaels); foam tape
