Card Sketch A Day: Popping Up to Say Happy Easter! & Make a Wish!

This is another sketch I was assigned from the Card Sketch a Day blog...I just love that of my favorites! I always love the sketches Susan assigns me...this one I REALLY loved, I knew from the get-go EXACTLY what I wanted to do...a little bunny popping up out of his hole one frame at a time...
Now searching for a bunny right after Christmas seemed darned near impossible...I mean I looked at several big box stores, several lss's...and no one was thinking Easter (I mean snow on the ground, Christmas Trees still up, come on people, I've got OTHER holidays to stamp...LOL!) However, persistance paid off and I did manage to find this adorable little guy!

I drew my hole with the help of my nestabilities oval die and colored it in, I then drew and colored my "grass". I added the butterflies, stickled them and added their flight "path". All on top of Fiskars Treading Water lace punch and for the final touch I stamped Happy Easter (from Paper Trey Ink)...the recipe is below for all the "deets".

  • Stamps: Bunny by Inkadinkdo, Butterfly by Doodlebug Teen Girl, Happy Easter by Paper Trey Ink
  • Paper: Nana's Nursery (boy) by DCWV
  • Ink: Tim Holtz
  • Punch: Fiskars Treading Water
  • Other: Stickles Artic Ice, Colored Pencils, Micro Pen

Here's another card using the same sketch...I couldn't resist the MS cupcake punch the moment I saw it...and the paper (Sweet Shoppe by DCWV) went just perfectly with it! I took the colors of my card from the dp. This is mostly a punchies card, but I still think it turned out cute! I just love the glittered frosting and the little hearts on each cupcake! Below is the recipe...


Punches: MS Cupcake, CM Squares, Fiskars Threading Water

Paper: DCWV Sweet Shoppe

Stamp: Sentiment by Studio G

Hearts: by K & Co.

Other: Organza Ribbon, Pop-Dots, Stickles
