Our theme for this month was to focus on Basket Bunches or Dragonfly Dreams. I chose to work with Basket Bunches. I had used Dragonfly Dreams for my display stamper projects back in November so I was out of ideas for that set, haha! Plus that bunny is so cute in Basket Bunches that I knew I wanted to do something with him. I'm also glad to have fun springy cards to share after ALL of the snow we just got here on the east coast. I mean it's mid-March, this is crazy!!
This came out exactly how I pictured it in my head. How cute is the carrot wreath?? To get a perfect circle shape for the wreath, I cut out the size circle I wanted out of the circle framelits. See below.
I used this circle as the base for the carrots. I stamped, colored and die cut 15 carrots to fit around the wreath. Then I cut and colored the bunny as well. The bunny's tail is one of the pom poms from the Pom Pom trim. As I was cutting it off the trim, it came unraveled a bit and got a little puffy but I like the look it gives. I stamped and embossed the sentiment on a Pool Party tag. To finish off the card I added ribbon from the Cupcakes and Carousel embellishment kit and some enamel shapes and gold dazzling details. This is my favorite card!!
For my next card I did lots of watercoloring!
I stamped and embossed everything on water color paper with white embossing powder. I then used inks and my aqua painter to color everything in. The background was also water colored and the bottom was stamped with the little grass image.
If you look closely at the background you will see that I embossed several clouds from the Lift Me Up stamp set with white embossing powder. I also added white sequins to several of the clouds. You can't have a card without sequins or enamel shapes!! :)
I hope you enjoyed these Easter cards!!
