A Bunny ATC Turned Greeting Card - HSS Inspiration Challenge - Easter

Last weekend I created some ATCs to trade at my local ATC club called the Transit Traders.   WOW!  That group of ladies is amazing!  I came home from that meeting inspired to create using a few new techniques!  However, there is NEVER enough time in my day. Someone is always hungry at my house!

Anyhow I had a few cards leftover, so today I created an Easter card with one of them to enter into the Hand Stamped Sentiments Easter Challenge.

I made the bunny from an idea taken from Jackie Topa's Blossom Petals punch class.  What I was going for in this card was to create a picture frame image. So I added a Soft Suede layer, then a Very Vanilla layer stamped with the Woodgrain stamp in Soft Suede and sponged with Crumb Cake ink.  Then I added a 4 1/8 x 5 3/8" layer of So Saffron designer series paper and added that to a Soft Suede card base.  It's almost like you're looking out your cartoon window to the outdoors.  If there was a caption, what do you think the bunny would be saying?

Stamps: Woodgrain
Paper: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Bashful Blue, Garden Green, So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, Daffodil Delight, Wisteria Wonder, Tempting Turquoise
Ink: Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Garden Green; Chocolate Chip and Pretty in Pink markers
Accessories: Blossom Petals punch, Cupcake Builder punch, small oval punch, Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack, White Signo gel pen, Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots textured impressions embossing folder, Snow Burst textured impressions embossing folder

Happy Stamping!

So fun! I love the little punch bunny peeking out to make sure the eggs are well hidden! Love all of the layers & texture, and the woodgrain frame really sets off the main image!
