Easter Cards Day 2 of 3 - Fun Stampers Journey

This is such a cute bunny stamp.   It can be used for Easter or any time you need a bunny on your project.   It is one that is easy to fussy cut out and stamps beautifully.   The bunny could be done in many different colors.   I used a dark brown because it made me think of a chocolate bunny (a tradition to have one in my Easter baskets when I was growing up).  

The card base was accented with Journey Silks and the grass look die from the Border Details die set.  I popped out the bunny rectangle piece with Journey Foam Squares to give the card a bit of dimension.

Easter Cards Day 1 of 3 - Fun Stampers Journey

Easter this year is Sunday, April 16th which is three weeks away.  So you should have time to order supplies if needed and receive them in time to make your cards, gifts, and scrapbook pages.   I will be posting card ideas the next three days to help to inspire you.


This card just made me smile.   We always decorated Easter eggs as kids.   It was fun to see what we could create.   I remember making faces on them with stickers, but most were colored eggs.   We often used a wax white crayon on the eggs and then dyed over the drawing.   Gave us some interesting designs.

There are a couple of Fun Stampers Journey stamp sets that would be really cute for decorating eggs.
Eggmojis SS-0415  set of 27 stamps
     Stamps are eyes, mouths, glasses, noses, smiles, lips, mustaches and beard.
     So many choices.
Dapper Easter Egg Dies    Di-0289  set of 4 dies
Mrs Egg AT-0230 set of 4  (shown above)
Mr Egg AT-0229  set of 4
Egg Crates ST-0129 set of 6 --- each crate will hold 6 eggs. 
Page 24 through 35 of the Bloom This Way Mini Catalog is loaded with items for Easter.

Background Technique - Using Cling Wrap, Splashes, and Silks - Fun Stampers Journey

I'm learning more and more as time goes by.   I have been a card maker for years, literally, and there is still so much to learn and to share too.   The other day I did a Facebook Live Feed showing how I created these backgrounds that I used to create the cards below.    Amazing what can be done with cling wrap, Journey Splashes, Journey Silks, and some water.
