Some Bunny

Hello All,

Easter is just around the corner so I'm sharing a card I made using the Close to My Heart stamp set of the month (I think February 2017), called Easter Bunny:

I *love* this little bunny!  I stamped her with Memento tuxedo black ink and colored her with copics.  Her Sunday-best dress is paper-pieced :)  The sentiment is from the stamp set as well. It's stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Ranger white super fine embossing powder. The *gorgeous* digital paper is from the Etsy shop, Grepic.  It's called, "antique flowers."  I am obsessed with it!  The blush flowers look amazing with the Stampin' Up blush cardstock.  It's die cut with a Mama Elephant dies, the scalloped circle and frame from the All prettied up set.

The inside holds another sentiment from the stamp set and I fussy cut a few flowers from the digi paper:

The paper peony is from the Giant Flowers Cricut cartridge.  I have been playing around with them and this is one of the practice ones as I *finally* discovered -- after making half of dozen of them - if I doubled up on all the petal pieces, including the center, they are fuller and are actually quite pretty! Peonies are my favorite so the plan is for a whole bouquet of doubled-petaled ones.  They are just a tad time-consuming so I am pacing myself.

I am in training again for work this week and next.  It's a whole lot of information to cram into 2 weeks so I'm really hoping for some quality craft room time this weekend!  If not, I'm pretty sure my brain will explode - LOL!  

Have a great week!
