Once I started to
work play with the Stampin' Up! stamp set, Everybunny, I just could not put it down – especially since it is nearly 90% an Easter stamp set! That is, 7 of the 8 stamps in the set are bunnies and chicks with an Easter theme. The 8th stamp – not entirely. Now that I think about it, I may have to go make a card with the not-necessarily-Easter stamp for AFTER Easter!
So on the day before Easter, I decided that some of my friends in the neighborhood "needed" some Easter cards, so off I went to find something fresh to do with the stamp set!
The first card I made for a friend who has a favorite color. Would you guess it was Purple! As I went through my stash of Stampin' Up! Designer Series Papers, I decided I had to use a set that had some kind of purple in it. Well, it just so happens that her mother, also a friend in the neighborhood, is very partial to Lime Green and Coral. It did not take long for the Designer Series Paper set, Berry Blossoms, to jump up and say, "Me!! I'm the right paper set!!"
For this card, I used the Wisteria Wonder-colored paper in the set, along with a print that I used in the other two cards. The nice thing about papers with a moderate sized set of images with different colors throughout is that I can find a piece with lots of the color that I want and cut the paper to get that color. That's exactly what I did with all three of these cards! So you see lots of the Wisteria Wonder color in the floral print showing on this card. And I had to have a purple baloon, so I stamped the balloon image on a piece of the Wisteria Wonder print and cut out the sections that I wanted to be purple. To finish it off, I added some Basic Rhinestones to be the dots on the balloon.
The second card in this series of projects also has a lot of the Wisteria Wonder, with Wisteria Wonder Card Stock making up the mats behind all three rectangles, and forming the image of the egg in which the little bunny is sitting. I added another of the prints from the Designer Series Paper set, making sure that I had some Wisteria Wonder from the print showing top and bottom. To embellish this card a bit, I added a trio of Basic Pearls in the upper left corner. Cute bunny!
You'll recognize the little girl bunny in the last of the cards as one that I used for a card I sent out earlier in the week. For this card, I focused on the Lucky Limeade and Calypso Coral colors. There's still a bit of the Wisteria Wonder showing, and I even colored one of the eggs in the little girl bunny's basket with my Wisteria Wonder Stampin' Write Marker. I cut her dress out of the floral pattern, and it looks just like something my friend might wear!
If you're celebrating Easter this weekend, I wish you the happiest of holidays! I hope that these Easter Bunnies bring a smile to your face, and that you wear that smile all week!
