I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend and preparing for Easter next weekend. I can’t believe we’re already a week into April. Crazy!
As I was preparing designs for my March card class I wanted to make an Easter card the could be used for Easter or any occasion (almost). This Basket Bunch – You’re Egg-Stra Special Bunny card was actually the first design I created using the Basket Bunch Stamp Set. I loved how the eggs looked and had my “A-ha” moment that they would be great for my 13-in-one-derful series redone (aka – one sheet wonder).
BASE: I kept it clean and simple, going with Thick Whisper White. For the “mini eggs” square I started stamping and the stamp fit perfectly with one egg-stra stamped on each row. By offsetting each row two eggs it keeps the random look. As you know I’m not much in to coloring but these cuties were crying out “color me”, so I pulled up my big girl pants and did a minimal bit of coloring in Pear Pizzazz, Perfect Plum and Flirty Flamingo. After I finished coloring and was doing my “happy chair dance” I of course thought “they need some sparkle”. Lol! I remembered “ooh!” Wink of Stella. Oh my gosh it puts just the perfect amount of sparkle on those eggs and looks adorable to boot! I layered it onto a slightly large Whisper White square.
BUNNY MEDALLION: I stamped this adorable guy onto Whisper White and cut out two circles from Layering Circles Framelits. I did minimal coloring on him as well. Guess what? He needed some sparkle as well so I added a rhinestone. Lol! Then to help make the colors pop I added banners. To add “more height” I popped the medallion and banners with dimensionals.
SENTIMENT: The sentiments in the Basket Bunch stamp set are cute and I had fun picking out what I wanted to use. I stamped “You’re Egg-Stra Special” onto a narrow Whisper White banner with Memento Black Ink. Then I popped this with Dimensionals as well.
I hope you enjoyed today’s design and are inspired (or CASE if you’d like) to create an Easter or “any occasion” card. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend.
