Simon Says Stamp - HIPPITY HOPPITY Mini Album



Hello Lovelies! I'm should actually be calling this a MINI MINI album, it is tiny and darling and utterly pointless other than making someone smile!


I'm taking advantage of the outline dies from the Hippity Hoppity Stamp and Dies sets to create a shaped base for this album and then layering some of my favorite sweet patterns in a pretty pastel rainbow, just so I could wish you HOPPY SPRING!



Here's a closer look at today's key supplies:

HOPPY SPRING MINI ALBUM - Die-cutting and Album Assembly

Album Base: ~3" x 2 1/2"




COLOR PALETTE

Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated Ink: Lemonade, Spring, Marine, Heather and Carnation


Simon Says Cardstock: Banana, Mint, Surf Blue, Lavender and Cotton Candy*

*I ended up switching out the Cotton Candy cardstock with a scrap that I discovered in my stash.



 

PICTORIAL GUIDE


STENCILING THE SUNSHINE BACKDROP

  • score a piece of 4" x 5" at 2 1/2" on the 5" side and fold in hand, repeat 4 more times

  • Secure the Hippity Hoppity bunny outline die to the folded cardstock as shown with the ear slightly overlapping the edge on the left side, so that it does not cut through the paper at that point. This will create be the "joint" that holds the two shapes together

  • Die-cut the white cardstock to create the shaped "card" base, repeat the previous step and this 4 more times

  • Match the right flap of one "card" to the left flap of another and adhere with Craft Tacky Glue until they are all connected



 

CREATING THE RAINBOW BUNNY LAYERS

Die-cut a set of bunny shapes using the solid cardstock



Create the rainbow of patterned cardstock using the Gingham and Flower Frenzy Background Stamps and die-cut a another set of bunny shapes the patterned cardstock.



 

CREATING THE ALBUM FRONT AND BACK

Stamp Bunny shape and details in Memento Tuxedo Black. Color with Copic Markers as follows:


Heart-shaped Nose - RV02, RV04

Inside of Ears - RV00, RV02

Body/Tail - N0

Round Eyes - B02


Close-up to see coloring better. :-)




Die-cut stamped shapes. The black eye-brows and nose/mouth are cut out of black velvet cardstock. Note: I stamped more pieces than necessary. :-)



Use foam dots to adhere the eyes and mouth to the front and the tail to the back.



 


ADDING THE RAINBOW LAYERS

Open the first "spread of the album, align the yellow gingham bunny and trim the ear slightly at the fold of the album to allow the pages to lie flat, repeat as shown on the other side with the solid yellow bunny. Adhere with Bearly Craft Glue or Craft Tacky Glue.


Repeat for each color in the following order, until the rainbow is complete:

yellow, green, blue, purple, pink


Finish by adhering the front and the back layers


 

EMBELLISHING THE ALBUM

NOTE: I used a heart punch from my stash to create the little hearts in the pink section and the cute carrot stamp from the Sweet Tweets set to make the pattern in the green sections.


 

CREATING THE SENTIMENTS


Grab your Detail Round Brushes and get to inking your sentiments!


 

Adhere your sentiment strips to complete!










Hoppy Spring Y'all!



 

Hope you had fun with me today celebrating Spring!
