Happy Easter

Ordinarily I'm posting a Cropstop post today, but the dashboard has been down for a month -- giving us the "white screen of death." Haylie-Jo has been working on it, but I'm not sure when things will be fixed.  So.....I'm sharing a fun set of Easter cards I made instead.

I won the "Happy Spring" stamp set from Amuse Studio last year, but didn't get a chance to use it before the season was over.  I pulled it out this year and had a lot of fun creating a couple bunny themed Easter cards with it.

To be honest, I struggle with using small stamps, so this was a bit of a challenge for me. I'm pretty happy with the way these cards turned out though -- hoping I'll get more time to use this fun set.

Supplies and tools:
Dies/Punches: Fence border punch (Martha Stewart), Square Punch, Stitched Oval Die
Embossing: Basket weave embossing folder (Darice)
Ink: Versamark Watermark, Chalks, Peeled Paint/Worn Lipstick/Broken China Distress Oxide, Tuxedo Black (Memento) 
Stamps: Happy Spring (Amuse Studio), Plaid Background (Impression Obsession)
