About Me

Sarahfleming1 Hello! My name is Sarah Fleming, and I'm a paper addict living in central Texas. I'm an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and love to teach others how to make lovely paper projects. I always have ink-stained fingers (I'm okay with that). I also knit. If you're in the USA, I'd love to be your demonstrator!

Bluebonnet Bunny

Welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop! We are a small group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the world who love to share our creativity with others. You’re currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA.

Our theme for this month is Bunnies & Chocolates. I decided to go with bunnies, as you can see.

Stampin' Up! handmade Easter card using Garden Girl with Tranquil Tulips, Mini Embroidery Hoops, Stampin' Blends, baby wipe technique, Texas bluebonnets - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

In Texas, Easter time means It’s Time to Take Pictures of Your Kids in the Bluebonnets. Bluebonnets are everywhere right now, so I decided to feature them on my card. I used the Baby Wipe Technique and used Night of Navy and Rich Razzleberry re-inkers for my bluebonnets. The stamps (other than the bunny) are from the Tranquil Tulips host stamp set from the Annual Catalog. I had overlooked these smaller flowers. These are two-step stamps, and I just stamped each of the two stamps in both colors mixed together on the baby wipe. Along with bluebonnets, we also get a ton of wildflowers around here in the spring, so I also added some fun little flowers in Berry Burst. I drew the grass in with my LL Twist Stampin’ Write Marker.

I stamped the bunny from Garden Girl (LOVE) in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored him in with Ivory, Bronze, and Light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends, plus used the Color Lifter for blending. I punched him out with the 1-3/8″ Scalloped Circle Punch and popped him up on Dimensionals. Isn’t the Mini Embroidery Hoop adorable?! That and the sequins are glued on with the Fine Tip Glue Pen.

I hope you enjoyed my card today! Make sure you follow the hop all the way back to me so you can see everyone else’s projects. The designers on this team are so talented — you won’t want to miss any of the blogs!
