We're still celebrating Papertrey Ink's 7th anniversary, and today's post is all about spring. There are several new releases this month that can be used to bring a little sunshine and spring into your life. My first project uses the new Bunny Bag dies along with the sweet new Hippity Hoppity stamp set.
I chose to use the ears, nose, and flower dies from the Bunny Basket die along with a cotton bag, to create a fun way to wrap up some Easter treats. I used Vintage Cream and Lavender Moon felt for the main portion of the bunny, and then Autumn Rose, Summer Sunrise, and Limeade Ice felt for the flowers. The bunny's face is a Heart Print die turned upside down.
I stamped images from the Hippity Hoppity set on a die cut Tremendous Tag and colored the chick in with Copics and some Stickles glitter. The flower and leaves are from the Sweet Speech stamp set.
Across the top I used a double border of hearts cut using the Heart Border die, Limeade Ice, and Vintage Cream felt. The Bunny Basket die collection, comes with bunny paws as well, and I decided to attach them near the bottom, to the backside of the bag just for fun.
My second project uses the Hippity Hoppity stamp set again and is paired with the new Garden Grace stamp set. It's so beautiful. I used Raspberry Fizz, Melon Berry, Berry Sorbet, Limeade Ice, Simply Chartreuse, and Harvest Gold for my flowers and leaves.
I used the Favor It Box 2 die and stamped Garden Grace directly onto the front of the die before assembling it. I then used the Hippity Hoppity die collection and some patterned paper to create my bunny for the front. I colored in the ears, nose, and tail with Copic markers and then added shimmer with Stickles.
My matching card uses the very same sets, but Garden Grace was confined to Tremendous Tag used as a small accent to bring in the colors of the Favor It box. I also used the new Circle Scribbles set to bring in just a very faint pattern on my card and box base...love this fun set as well.
I finished with Sweet Blush Saddle Stitch ribbon and a button. It's been fun to switch gears and head towards spring in my crafting.
If you're up for a challenge, be sure to visit Nichole's blog for all of the details. Be sure to look at my first photo very carefully to see if perhaps there may be a hidden image waiting there.
