Storybook Easter Wishes

Hi there!  Easter's fast on the way and I made a card to send to my daughter and her family.  I've entered it into the current challenge at SUO Challenges to make an Easter card or other papercrafted project with the Easter theme.  There's still plenty of time to join in so go check out the blog for lots of fun inspiration! (

I decided to use the cute bunny from the Storybook Friends stamp set.  He was heat embossed and colored in Crumb Cake with a blender pen.

Since the stamp includes a sentiment but not the one I wanted to use, I fussy cut old Bun and adhered him to Whisper White card stock stamped with the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes and cut out with a Windows Collection framelit.

The main image was adhered to So Saffron card stock cut out with a Deco Labels framelit and popped up on a Soft Sky designer paper pennant, cut out with the largest Pennant framelit.  My goodness, what did I do before framelits???  The Early Espresso pennant was created by tracing around the outside of the largest framelit and cut out by hand.

I am so glad when Stampin' Up! decided to bring Soft Sky back into the color fold!  It is such a lovely blue and goes well with so many other colors.  It also meant that the retired designer paper I was holding onto had new life as well!  The button and twine are also retired products but fortunately they don't have an expiration date so they can still be used LOL!  The twine has a bit more heft than Linen Thread, so I like using it behind buttons.

That's it for today.  I appreciate your visit and as always, would love to hear from you if you have time to leave a comment.  Have a great week!
