Hoppy Easter

Wow, I've been such a bad blogger! It's been a busy, busy week I tell ya. I've been staying later than usual at work to wrap up a big project. It may have only been an hour or two here and there, but it sure does make a difference! It left me with virtually no stamping time! So tonight, since it's Friday, I made myself stay up and finish a project so that I could share it with you!

I just realized tonight that I have not worked on any projects for Easter yet. And I have a little person in my house who is expecting some goodies, so I better get crackin'! I found this carrot box online from the QuicKutz Store and downloaded it for my Silhouette SD. I have made similar boxes in the past, but it was so nice to let the cutter do the work for me this time around!

I stamped my box with the polka dot stamp from the Waltzingmouse Stamps Off Beat Backgrounds set and made a little tag for it using one of the circle stamps from the Vintage Circles Small set. This set is "Nestie friendly," so I used one of my Spellbinders classic circle dies to cut it out. I just knew I had to use the bunny from L'il Buddies to add to my tag. Can you believe I hadn't inked him up yet?!

If you look really closely, you can see that I made my bunny's tail nice and fluffy with Liquid Applique. After making this card, I just knew that I would use this technique again! I used Copics to color in my bunny and used my colorless blender to add some texture to his fur by lightly dabbing him with my blender. It's subtle, but I think it makes a difference:

Well, that's one Easter project down! I plan on making some more of these over the weekend, along with the rest of my Easter cards. Now if I can just get them addressed, stamped and in the mail! And who ate all of the jellybeans? I guess that's what I get for buying them a month too early! Have a great weekend and do some stamping!
