It's all about the carrots

well... and the bunny. he's cute isn't he? I was (an am still) in need of a few more Easter cards. I pulled out a set - Easter Bunny by Impression Obsession - I bought a few years ago and set out to make something with it.

I don't know about you but I find I buy stamps, hoping to get a lot of use out of them - I try not to impulse buy - and not a lot that's trendy... not to say that I don't have some "trendy" things in my collection but I'd say it's more classic.. stuff I know that when I bring it out again it doesn't look dated. (of course this is debatable ... depending on who you're talkin too ... but I digress....)
So I pull out these Easter bunny stamps and this is what I came up with. I really like those carrots. There are 2 carrot stamps in the set and I used them both and I think they make such a cute little border! I used Copics to color Mr. Bunny and carrots etc. The polka dot patterned paper is from Papertrey Ink's Polka Dot Parade pack. I used a rickrack die from PTI as well as Oval Nestabilities (with accompanying scalloped oval). The bakers twine is WeRMemory Keepers. Oh the little Happy Easter sentiment is from PTI's Polka Dot Parade #1 stamp set. Have I left anything out? Oh yeah... the little tag. I didn't have what I was looking for so I used the Double Ended Tag Trio from Nestabilities that I've had for a few years - and cut off one end and rounded it off.
Ok. I need to make another Easter card and a few birthday cards too. Thanks for stopping by!
