ID: MC Apr/18 - Easel Pandas - ECD Warm Thoughts - I Am The Family Face card
size: 7"w x 5"H (Easel closed)

Created: April 12, 2018

Suzanne just came out with a new batch of fabulous stamps... had to use a couple more of them BIG GRIN.

I'm using an A Way With Words dies  "Brave, Bold, Be Yourself" 4pce set  from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE

And I'm using two of newest quote and Decorative Element stamps from Quietfire Design 

("Tulips"); ("You Can Do Anything")

Scored and folded my aqua cardstock to create my easel structure, then die cut it with Spellbinders Grand Ovals set, using almost the largest die and keeping the top edge of the die above my fold. Cut another piece same size as card base in an aqua green shade and adhered to front.

Die cut an oval from white cardstock using Elizabeth Craft Designs "Stitched Oval" set. Hit it direct to paper with some Distress brown pads, then sponged some of the brown to get the mottled look of a palette. Punched an oval hole for a thumb to go through, but am using it for my tulips... Added globs of Nuvo Crystals in the tulip colors. (PS I do not recommend buying Nuvo Crystals. I bought mine Feb of 2017 and they have become extremely thick and do not come out of the bottle anymore. What a waste...)

Stamped the tulips and paint brushes using Versafine Black Onyx on white cardstock, clear embossed, then painted with the Distress colors. Fussy cut everything and adhered to card.

Stamped the quote with the black, clear embossed.

Thought the front was a little bare, so created a partial border with more hand cut tulips. 

On the floor: Die cut another stitched oval from the greenish color and sponged edges with a dirty green sponge. Cut a slot and adhered to floor with 3D foam tape.

Die cut the "Be Happy" from DoCraft gold mirror cardstock. Adhered to oval.

Again wanted to fill some of the blank areas and stamped, colored and fussy cut some more tulips.
