February SOTM Blog Hop - Easter Bunny




Welcome to our CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. You may have just come from Donna Digby's blog  You can find the entire list of bloggers at Melinda Everitt's blog. February's stamp of the month, "Easter Bunny," is definitely great for Easter stamping. It has some great sentiments that work for other occasions, too. I chose the female bunny and a friendship quote that would be great for Valentine's Day, birthday, or encouragement. I thought it went perfectly with the Hello Lovely flowered paper which I tied with Blush Shimmer Ribbon.






The sweet bunny image was stamped twice, once on white and once on the sorbet dotted pattern which I cut out for the ears and dress in order to paper piece. The bunny's hair and legs were lightly colored using a black watercolor pencil which looks gray when colored softly.  She was easy to fussy cut. I stamped the sentiment on a shape from Cricut Artistry (p.2) which I altered by unlocking the padlock shape to the left of the sizes and setting the size to 2.75" width and 2.25" height. I just backed the heart and cutouts with a scrap of the sorbet paper and made a Fern pattern mat that measured 3" width and 2.5" height. Lastly, I added some Pink Enamel Gems to highlight the message. Everything was attached to a white panel that I embossed with the Simple Chevron Embossing Folder.

Thank you for visiting. I was the last person on the hop, so you may be ready to go to the beginning to see what Wendy Kessler has to delight you!

Here is another card I made using this stamp set. It does have a link to bring you back here to the blog hop.
