Bunny Kisses & Easter Wishes

Bunny Kisses & Easter Wishes

Morning all!

I'm back with another Spring-themed card today.

While looking forward to the arrival of the new Spring Fling collection from The Greetery, I decided this would be a good opportunity to pull out some older Spring-friendly sets from previous years.

One being the stand-alone Bunny Kisses die (complete with tiny Easter eggs and tulip).

I love combining this bunny with the Container Garden stamp and die set enclosed in the Jumbo Jar, which was designed to coordinate with this set.

I started out by cutting all the Container Garden dies from white cardstock, stamping all the elements in a jig in my Misti, and adding some pencil details to the smaller flowers.

Next, I needed to make the Jumbo Jar frame.

I taped the nesting Jumbo Jar dies together with some low-tack tape and cut the jar frame from ivory cardstock three times to stack up the die cuts for extra dimension. I kept one of the inserts to blend some subtle blue sky with ink that was already on my blending brush and added some splatters of blue ink for good measure.

Once the jar was assembled, complete with gold lid and twine, I stuck it down onto the powder blue cardstock panel cut with the large Crimped Frame.

I pieced in the blended jar background and added the Container Garden elements, including the little bees.

Now time to add the Bunny - I cut it from bright white cardstock to help it stand out from the jar and used a grey Copic pen to add some shadow detail and a white pen for highlights on the pink cheek, nose and ear.

For a fluffy tail, I added a dab of puffy paint and dried it with my heat gun.

The Easter eggs and tulip from the Bunny Kisses set are coloured with Oxide inks using finger daubers, and again I added highlights with a white pen.

Finally, I just needed a sentiment to fit the scene, and thankfully the Tear Strip Tags Spring stamps and Tear Strip Tag die were the perfect fit for the space. They really are saving the day for my Easter cards this year, and they're also a really handy way to use up those rogue enamel dots where you only have one of that size left in a pack. Win-win.

And there we have it, one happy Spring bunny!

Until next time, happy crafting!
