Everybunny again!

Sorry, my stamping has been seriously curtailed with other things going on in my life.  My cabinets are ordered and should be here next month.  My flooring goes down in TWO weeks.  I need to get everything off the walls and out of the room by then so we can patch and paint before it is installed.  I settled on the old SU color Mellow Moss for my walls!  I wanted Pear Pizzazz, but it just wasn't going with the stain on the cabinets…made them look too orangey.  My son and his wife were here for the long weekend and we had a wonderful time visiting with them.  I also am finishing up prototypes for wedding invitations I'm making for friends…was supposed to be a small wedding…75-80…that has grown to over 200!  Of course, my taxes aren't done either.

You can see my list again here…HUGE RETIRED STAMP SALE!!!  I'll be adding more sets and accessories as I work thru the piles of stuff I have.  Thank you to everyone so far that has helped me clear off my shelves of retired stamp sets!!!

 

But…enough of me…

Stampin' Up!'s stamp set, Everybunny, has seriously replaced my old favorite Easter set, A Good Egg.  I love the expressions on these bunnies.  Here is another Easter card I made while I was on the retreat!  My girlfriend had challenged me to use this image with the hot air "egg"…I hadn't used it yet.

 

 

I started with a base card of Pear Pizzazz.  I ran the layer of Bashful Blue thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots folder.  I added the "ground" from the In Color Patterns Designer Paper, cutting it with my Cutter Kit blade.  I stamped the hot air balloon bunny in Black Stazon and watercolored with my AquaPainter and Stampin' Write Markers, then cut it out.  What a pain to cut all those strings!  lol!  I popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Finally, had the bunny throwing flowers out of the basket…I used the tiny Mini Brads in the center of the Itty Bitty Punch flowers, curling them outwards.  I stamped Happy Easter Everybunny in Black Stazon on Whisper White and punched with the Modern Label punch.

 

Love how whimsical this card is…maybe will do a few more to send to my parents and in-laws for Easter.

Card is lovely – the bunny is great and I'm wondering how he got all those flowers to fit in the basket!

I love this.  I like how realistic this is.  He really looks like he is floating in the sky.  The flowers drifting down are perfect!!
