Chocolate Easter Bunny Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have an Easter Inspiration Challenge.  I love the Chocolate Bunny image from My Digital Studio.  I printed him out in Early Espresso and with my Versamark pen I shaded in some of the areas then heat embossed with Iridescent Embossing Powder.  I then layered him over the Enchantment DSP and Soft Suede CS.  I used the Edgelit Dies, Adorning Accents embossing folders and coordinating stamp set Bordering on Romance on the Soft Suede and Calypso Coral.  For the bow on my bunny I used white Baker’s Twine that I dyed with Poppy Parade.

I also punched some of the flowers using the Blossom punch, Five Petal Flower punch, Boho punch and Punch Pack.  The flowers are embellished with pearls and butterflies die cut with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.   I also used the Pinking Hearts border punch underneath the sentiment.

Easter Favors to dress up your party

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have an Easter theme challenge. Create any Easter project – cards, 3D projects, party favors, baskets, gift sets…you get the idea. There are so many projects you can create to dress up this holiday.

For this challenge I created a small bunny basket perfect for Easter candy. I printed the chocolate bunny, Spring Vintage DSP and sentiment from My Digital Studio. I dressed him up with ivory grosgrain ribbon and adhered him to the front of the box. I punched the sentiment with the oval punch and layered it over a Regal Rose Scallop oval. I modified this box template by cutting off the back and made a handle from Regal Rose CS with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch.

My other project is the carrot box made with Stampin’ Up’s Petal Cone die.  Love this die.  I textured the Pumpkin Pie CS with Texture Plates Kit #4.  The carrot top was created by cutting two Old Olive banners in half length-wise and curling them around a paper piercing tool.  I adhered them with mini glue dots to the inside of the flaps so the flaps could still be folded under each other to close the box.  The bunny was stamped and clear embossed then punched with 1-3/8 circle punch then layers on Peach Parfait DSP from the Hostess level 1 paper pack.  For the larger scallop I used Old Olive Polka dot DSP from Jolly Holiday.

Eggcellent Eggs and Chocolate Bunny

This past weekend I had a workshop and one of the make and takes was the chocolate bunny basket.  So easy!  I CASED the idea from Angie Kennedy Juda.  The pink basket with yellow button is also very easy to make.  See below for recipe and templates.  The eggs were decorated using the Stampin’ Up’s! Eggcellent Eggs Kit.  At $9.95 this kit is a great value because it contains two 6″ x 6″ sheet of rub-ons, 24 die-cut egg stands, two 6″ x 6″ sheets of self-adhesive rhinestones, four sheets of 6″ x 6″ die-cut flowers in four colors and one 6″ x 6″ sheet of die-cut leaves.   There’s still time to order for your Easter projects.
