Here Comes the Easter Bunny!

I have had so much fun with the 2017 Basket Bunch Bundle from the current Occasions catalog.  The stamp set and corresponding Framelits are sold separately; but, you save 10% when you purchase the bundle.  See the Bundle here!

Here are some of the cards I have made using the Basket Bunch stamp set and Basket Builder Framelit Dies.  All cards use the same layout, but, are made with slightly different techniques.

On this one I used the Sponge Brayer for the sky.  The brayer is on page 180 of the 2017 Annual Catalog, or see it here.    I will be honest with you, I did not think I would like using a foam sponge brayer until I tried these.  There are 2 handles and 4 washable sponges in the box.  And, just $8 in the USA.  The rabbit, chicks, daffodil with stem and leaves, eggs and grass are all cut out using the Basket Builder Framelits Dies.  The dies and stamp set are seen on page 18 of the Occasions Catalog.  The card stocks are thick Whisper White for the A2 card base, Whisper White, Dapper Denim, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz and Crumb Cake.  Early Espresso ink to stamp the objects.  Various Stampin' Write markers to color the eggs and highlight the bunny.  A touch of clear Wink of Stella here and there.

On this one I  sponged the sky using Stamping Sponges (page 180 AC) with Tempting Turquoise.  The grass is sponged with Old Olive and a touch of Basic Black to create dimension.  As with the card above, the rabbit, chicks, daffodil with stem and leaves, eggs are all cut out using the Basket Builder Framelits Dies.

If you only have the Basket Bunch stamp set, you can use the same design to stamp the scene and color the objects with Stampin' Write Markers.  The A2 base is Whisper White as is the stamped piece.  It is backed with Tangerine Tango and Dapper Denim card stock.  The inks and markers are Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, Dapper Denim and Pink Pirouette.  A little clear Wink of Stella highlights the flower and bunny ears and tail. 

All of the items used to make these cards are available in my Stampin'Up! store here.  Thank you for shopping with me.
