I've Been A Busy Bunny!!

I have been stamping for the last 4hours and have finally made it past the half way point of having enough cards ready for Easter. It would help if I would quit adding people to the list, but I just love to give my cards to people who actually apreciate them. I have 5 new projects to show you, but I am going to do half today, and half for tomorrow. I have to help my mom pack again tomorrow, so I won't be able to stamp tomorrow, so I figured I would get some done today to post for tomorrow, aren't I sweet. The first one started out as my second card for today's sketch challenge, but I don't think it will qualify because of the 3 layer. It is supposed to be long and thin, not shaped like a super cute bunny!!LOL Both of these images are from Rubbernecker stamp company, whose link can be found over in my places I love to shop list. They were colored with SU markers and my aquapainter. I layered the signpost image with Mellow Moss, Lavender Lace and Pretty in Pink. The long strip is paper from the Spring Flowers DSP, layered with Lavender Lace and Mellow Moss. I used pink and moss gingham, pink taffeta and some lavender polka dot ribbon, three pink brads and it was done.
The second card was made using the Whipper Snapper set Spring Has Sprung. I stamped the images on Whisper White with Black Stazon and colored them in with my SU markers and aquapainter. I used some scraps of DP on the background in Pretty in Pink, Certainly celery, and Bashful Blue. The sentiment is the scallop, 13/8, and 1/4 circle punches layered in the same colors. I used my gel pen to make the dots, and punched the sentiment out with my word window punch. I added th button brads at the last minute, because I thought it needed something.

The next card was done in the same way. The eggs were stamped seperate, colored, cut out, placed on the basket, and then had crystal effects put on them. Also, on the sentiment panel, the Apricot layer is from the Prints Pack, even I'm not that good at drawing polka dots!!

It's a Bunny Garden!!

Don't you just love this image from Rubbernecker!! I love that little bunny peeking up. I hadn't gotten around to using this stamp yet, so when I saw today's sketch challenge, I knew I could use it. I started with Old Olive, and layered it with Pumpkin Pie and then Whisper White. The dp panels are paper from the retired Playhouse DSP from SU! I have always loved this paper, but could never figure out how to use it. I thought it would look perfect with this image colored with the same colors. I colored the image with my SU markers and put some Crystal Effects on the carrots. The sentiment is from the Whipper Snapper set Spring Has Sprung. 6brads and some white taffeta ribbon, and it was done. Hope you like it!! Thanks for looking and have a great day!!
