Hello friends! Today I'm sharing a pair of cards I made for family this Easter. This has become a big of a tradition for me - featuring the lovely "Sprinkles" (the feline focus of many of The Cat's Pajamas stamps) in bunny ears! I'm sure there's a stamp that already does this, but there's nothing quite like putting my own on there :)
Making the card itself was pretty easy, thanks to Spellbinders! I used layered oval and scalloped ovals die cuts. The white square I cut myself and used the "notched corner" Stampin' Up punch. I inked the edge of the square, and used the upside-down oval die to stencil the color into the oval. The ink was Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass.
The stamped verse is A|Muse studio and stamped in their Sky pigment ink. The ribbon is Stampin' Up from their 'clearance rack.' I layered this on A|Muse Studio's yellow gingham paper (LOVE their paper - the inside is already white and ready to write on!).
And of course - I hand-cut white ears from some scraps, and used a colored pencil to finish off the ears/nose/eyes of the kitty. All in all it was pretty quick!
I'm actually gone this weekend on a stampin' and scrappin' retreat! I'm really excited! I'm planning a post about how to pack- and prep-for a multi-day retreat. Wish me luck!
