Totally Techniques Blog Hop - Crinkle Special

Easter Card with Stampin Up Layering Oval Dies and Basket Weave Embossing folder

Welcome to our Totally Techniques blog hop for March 2018.  If you've arrived from Shannean's blog you've already seen a fabulous example of our technique this month which was chosen by Annette Elias and we are showcasing the 'Crinkled Paper' process. I've used it to create the top layer for each of my Easter Eggs and in a similar but slightly different way the basket also.  
To create the crinkle effect I used off cuts of whisper white card and basically screwed them up.  I also spritzed with a little water to make the card more pliable.  I opened the scrunched balls and used an ink pad to sweep ink across the card and on the whole just the creases pick up the ink.  I also used a sponge to smudge ink around the edge of each egg to define the edges.  With the lemon lime twist and daffodil delight eggs I also embossed each piece of card prior to scrunching them up to add even more texture.  I used embossing folders Polka Dot Basics on one and Petal Burst on the other.    
Using my Layered Ovals dies I cut the eggs out and also added a scalloped matting layer using the same set of dies in the same colour of each egg.  I've used ribbon and enamel dots to add decoration.  For the two smaller eggs I used white organza ribbon which in the case of the melon mambo egg I put my hand inside an empty embellishment bag and pulled the ribbon over the same colour ink pad and then dried it with my heat tool which also melted the ribbon and gave it a gathered appearance.  I did the same heating with white ribbon on the yellow egg.  The large egg has night of navy gingham ribbon.

I made the basket by first cutting one side of a box shape and then prior to sticking the sides in place I put it through the big shot with the SAB Basket Weave embossing folder and then ran the ink pad over it in the same way as the crinkled card earlier to add shading to the basket.  

The eggs themselves are layered and I built up the layers with glue dots and stampin dimensionals.  Luckily this card will be hand delivered so I don't need a box for posting.

My trusty Teeny Tiny Sentiments helped me with a simple sentiment and I cut it out with the stampin' up! classic label punch.  My sweet bunny is from the Stampin Up spring catalogue set Hello Easter.  

Hope you like this new technique.

What a great idea to use crinkled paper as eggs. It gives extra texture to die cuts. Thank you for sharing.
