Thanks for visiting the March 2020 edition of the Third Thursdays Blog Hop!  Are you as ready for Spring as I am?!?  Well, Happy First Day of Spring, y'all!!!  Here in NW Ohio, it is definitely here because...  the grass is getting greener, the birds are singing, our residents ducks are courting again on the pond and my eyes are itching!  So sit back and enjoy the inspirations on today's blog hop as we celebrate that Spring Has Sprung!!!

I am so enamored by this little bunny from the Welcome Easter stamp set!  There is nothing like seeing the rabbits hopping around on our property to make me smile from ear to ear.  So with Easter just around the corner and the Easter Bunny coming to visit children of all ages, I couldn't resist turning this little cutie into a hopper on a spring!  **wink**



Stamp the bunny image in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  Color with Light Smoky Slate and Light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends Markers.  Highlight the ears and feet with a Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends Marker.  Fussy cut and set aside.

Emboss a 4 x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder and adhere to the front of a Thick Whisper White vertical folding card base with liquid adhesive.  Using the largest scalloped die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, die cut it twice with Whisper White.  Using the same die with the largest stitched label die, center the later and die cut on Whisper White.   Stack one scallop die cut with the scallop/label die cuts together, stamp your scene in Memento ink placing and removing your bunny whenever needed.  Color with Blends of your choice (I used Granny Apple Green for the grass; Dark Daffodil Delight for the flower centers and bee; Light Pool Party for the sky).

Adhere the colored label to the solid scalloped die cut with liquid glue so you have wiggle room for perfect alignment in the opening.  Cut a piece of Whisper White Baker's Twine, wrap it around the opening and tie off in a bow as shown.  Adhere the colored scalloped die cut to the bottom one with Foam Adhesive Strips.  Adhere the bunny to a mini wobbler (which I purchased on Amazon) and watch him go!  Adhere this completed section to the card front with liquid glue.  Stamp the sentiment onto a scrap piece of Whisper White, trim with snips and adhere as shown with liquid glue (be sure to not apply to the overhanging part).

The inside is layered and stamped to compliment the card front.  And don't forget to stamp the envelope front and flap for the recipient.

  2. Awesome card. I like the way the layers kind of bring the bunny almost to the same height. Thank you for Sharing.

    1. Thanks Jan! Actually did the layering like that to protect the bunny for mailing. :)

  4. Oh my goodness, I love this stamp set so much and now even more. I literally let out an "awww" when I watched the video of the wobbler bunny. Too CUTE! Love how your little scene just pops on the clean background. Ok, gotta go get my wobblers out...
