Hippity Hoppity - Happy Easter!


Happy Easter!
Hope your day was as Hippity-Hoppity as mine.

Today's Easter Bunny card features the Cheerful Critters Stamp from the Occasions Mini Catalog. The little critters are so cute!!

Details:

  • The Bunny and Greeting are stamped in Memento Black ink. I like using the Memento Black because it doesn't smear.
  • The Hippity-Hoppity sentiment is from the And Many More stamp set. This stamp set is full of great greetings and sentiments...definitely a must have!!
  • The Bunny is colored in with Crumb Cake and Rose Red Markers.
  • The buttons are Daffodil Delight candy dots from the Brights package.
  • The Daffodil Delight textured paper was created with the Big Shot and Decorative Dots embossing folder. Embossing cardstock is a great way to add texture, interest and depth
  • Punch a scallop border on a strip of Rose Red cardstock and attach a strip DSP.
  • I love the Painted Blooms Designer Paper used in this card (stripe and polka dot). This is such a bright and cheery pack of paper.
  • The bow is tied with Daffodil Delight Seam Binding...One of the great things about Stampin' Up! is the color coordination.  The Daffodil Delight ribbon matches the Daffodil Delight paper perfectly!

  • Card Base (see Card Making Basics for measurements and diagram)
  • Bottom Mat Layer - 4" x 5 1/4"
  • Daffodil Delight Textured Cardstock - 3 3/4" x 1 3/4"

Love is Kindness



The Essence of Love is Kindness
As soon as I saw this sentiment stamp I thought of my sister, Julia. She is the kindest most loving person I know. I knew I needed to make her a set of cards featuring this beautiful sentiment.

Coloring
I used Stampin' Up! Blendabilities to color the flowers. Unfortunately, due to quality issues, the Blendabilities line of products has been discontinued. But no worries...Stampin' Write Markers are an excellent option for coloring.


Stacked With Love
The Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper Stack is not just for Valentines. In fact, I have used it for every type of card except Valentine's Day.  It has classic patterns in  Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red, Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe.



While some of the double sided papers have a side perfect for those "lovey dovey" cards, the reverse side is great for any other type of card.

Measurements and Cutting:

Card Base: (See Card Making Basics for a diagram)

  • Start with 8 1/2 x 11" Whisper White cardstock 
  • Cut in half  to make a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 base
  • Score at 4 1/4 and fold in half
Layers:
  • Black Mat (5 1/4" x 4")
  • Black DSP (5" x 3 3/4")
  • Yellow Mat (3" x 4")
  • White Stamped Layer (2 3/4" x 3 3/4")
