I decided to make an Easter card using a cute Penny Black stamp - What a Spring. This is one of their older wood mounted stamps and I only found one currently available on eBay.
I heat embossed the image using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and Clear Embossing Powder, then colored using Copic markers. I had this design in mind which meant fussy cutting the image. All animals and butterflies are part of this stamp.
The sentiment is is also by Penny Black, another wood mounted stamp, unfortunately I can't find a link to it anywhere - it's really old, and was part of a lot of stamps I bougth from eBay a few years ago.
To follow the 'lots of dots' theme I decided to use dotted pattern paper for the sky and I inked a die cut "hill" using distress ink. My stitched hill border die is from a set I received when I was on the Whimsy Stamps design team years ago and retired. This set by Lawn Fawn is similar. When everything was assembled on the card front I framed it with yellow card stock then added to a Heavyweight White Cardstock base. It's hard to see, but all the images were adhered with Foam Tape to make the pop up. Should have added some glitter to the butterflies and flowers, but didn't think of it until after I had taken the pictures.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you're having a good week! Our state (Illinois) cancelled all schools here for the next two weeks, so that means my schedule will be somewhat different. Kids will have to do their schoolwork on their computers at home. Not ideal, but at least they will still be able to do some work. Hoping everything will be back to normal in April! But who knows....At least I have enough papercrafting supplies to last me forever 🤓, although I may run out of glue...in fact I only have an open bottle so may need to stop at the craft store tomorrow. And I’m out of glue dots! They better not close the craft stores!!!
