Easter Bicycle Scene

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today. Hope your day is going well and that you are getting to enjoy this Spring season in your little spot in the world. 

Our area is starting to bring forth all the Spring blooms. In my yard there are crocus, daffodils and Lenten rose in bloom right now. The tulips have pushed through but it will be a few more weeks before we see the blooms. 

Today we had some crazy high winds early in the day. Even the birds didn't show up at our feeders for awhile. But it seems to have quieted down now. I get concerned with the high winds that our power will go out. That happened last year at the start of the pandemic and both our freezers were filled to capacity. But today nothing happened just the winds. Whew!!!

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog. I used the new Spring Bicycle die to create an Easter card for my bike riding friend. So let's get started on some details of how I created this card.

Design Steps: 
I started my outdoor scene by stenciling some clouds with 2 shades of blue distress inks. I used a blending brush and peeled paint distress ink for the ground area. The colors I used are a little peek of what's coming for this week's Splitcoaststampers color challenge.
Next, I started my die cutting. The Spring Bicycle is cut in Stampin'-Up pacific point cardstock. I decided to add some tulips and a garden fence as well. The tulips and tree are from the Spring Bloom Cottage and the fence is from the Picket Fence Border die.
I stamped my sentiment directly on the image panel using pacific point ink. It's two separate stamps so I used my MISTI to line everything up. I attached the fence with glue dots and the tree + flowers with Ranger multi medium matte. I rolled up adhesive dots and attached to the bicycle image. I wanted it lifted off the background scene slightly.
To complete my card I attached to the royal blue card base. Scattered a few sequins and added 2 little bunnies. They are cut in a light gray cardstock from the Bunny Gnome 1 & Bunny Gnome 2 dies. I attached them with dimensional adhesive.
Well, that's it for this post. So until next time.......God bless.
