Easter Bunnies by Jil Lebel

Hello Ai fans!

Happy Easter!

Well, it's almost Easter.  This is my last chance to wish you all a Happy Easter even though I thought that was the case last week.  This week I'm using the HM Easter Set 4976. This stamp set is designed to be used with the Holiday Mansion set, but I decided to use it without the mansion.  There are a bunch of cute little images that can be used by themselves.  What makes everything even easier is that the dies are included in the set !

I stamped my images onto Spectrum Ultra Smooth Premium white card stock with MFT Extreme black ink and colored them with my Copic markers.  Colors are listed below.  I have a pretty limited Copic collection so I had to get creative.  I wanted pastel colors so I used my regular colors and lightened them with my colorless blender.

For the main layer, I used my Cricut Air to cut out the word Easter onto cream paper.  I then cut out a layer using my SSS Stitched rectangles.  I made a card base with 110 lb. white paper.  I masked off the areas that would show through each letter of the word Easter.  I them colored in each area using the mini blending tool with a foam tool and my Distress inks.  In order I used Spun Sugar, Spiced Marmalade, Scattered Straw, Shabby Shutters, Shaded Lilac and Tumbled Glass.  I attached the cream layer onto the card.  After that I added the four bunnies, the basket and paint cans over each letter with foam tape.  The last thing I did was add a matching colored gem next to each letter.

Copics used:
Bunnies - E30, E31, W1, W3, RV10
Buckets - C5, C3, C1
B00, BV00, Y11. YG03, Blender

Thanks for stopping by and Have a Great Day!
