Warmer Easter Wishes

Hi Everyone,
Welcome to Wednesday!!!  Have you been out getting the Easter candy?? Or maybe getting an Easter outfit?? I love all the soft pastels that are out at this time of the year.

I just got some new stamps from Art Impressions and since they are Easter themed, I will be showing these off in my next few Wednesday posts. Hope the cards inspire you and give you some great ideas.

This card is using a new set called Kate - set 4118. And this bunny is sooooo cute. the set even comes with a seperate little pinafore stamp as well. I stamped the rabbit on white cs and colored the rabbit with Copics. Next I stamped the little jacket part of the stamp on a small piece of designer paper and I stamped the dress part of the stamp on another designer paper. I trimmed the dress, jacket and the rabbit out and layered them all together. It was like playing with paper dolls. I remember how fun that was when I was a kid. Next, I added the matching bow in her hair, or should I say fur. Then I added the glitz. The background  I used is an embossing folder and I colored it with distress inks. Lastly I added a pastel yellow bow, punched a few corners and added the sentiment and the card is done.

Supplies used:
Kate set - 4118
Copic markers - E57, E71, R81
Cardstock/Paper - White CS, peachy pink cs, designer papers (3 different ones)
Embossing Folder - Sizzix
Spellbinders Die - Labels Sixteen  S4-301
Punch for corners
Inks - Versafine black, Distress inks scattered straw, victorian velvet

Tomorrow I will have 2 posts. I will have the card for next week's Art Impressions weekly challenge and I will have a post for the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog Hop. Please stop back for both posts I would love to see you again.
