Stampin' Up! Fable Friends Stamp Set

I had the Bloom & Grow Stamp Set on my table from yesterday's card, so when I needed a background for my Stampin' Up! Fable Fiends set, I lazily reached for Bloom & Grow again.  I love the background effect!  It isn't as dark in real like as my photo shows, but I may try a version where I stamp off before stamping my Bloom & Grow stamped image just to see what a lighter background looks like. Both Fable Friends and Bloom & Grow Stamp Sets are from the Stampin' Up! Annual catalog.  The rabbit from Fable Friends has such an endearing look on his face.  I love to use him for Spring and Easter card.  The set also includes a Baby sentiment, so you'll find many uses for this Stamp Set.        

The basecard for today's card is Petal Pink.  Then a layer of Whisper White.  Then another layer of Petal Pink stamped several times with one of the flower sets from Bloom & Grow using Petal Pink ink.  

For the image layer, I die cut a Whisper White oval and a scalloped Petal Pink oval mat using the Layering Ovals Dies.      

I stamped the bunny in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored him with Light Crumb Cake and Light Petal Pink Blends Stampin' Markers for his jacket, ears and hands. 

For the sentiment, I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog to cut a small Whisper White scalloped rectangle.  I stamped one of the sentiments from the Fable Friends Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  To finish accenting my card, I added a bow using the 1/4" Petal Pink Metallic-Edge Ribbon.   


The two cards above are ideas from the Stampin' Up! catalog for using the Fable Friends Stamp Set.  If you don't have a Spring/Easter/Baby set, this is one you'll love.  Add the Fable Friends and  Bloom & Grow Bundle to your shopping list today and you can earn free Sale-A-Bration selections.  Or join use for a class below where we'll make this card.   Hurry, Sale-A-Bration ends March 31, 2020, and products selections are only available until they are sold out. You'll love everything you make with these wonderful products.
