“Littles” Framed Backgrounds with Springtime Bunnies

Hello Friends! Emily here (@popsofpaper) sharing two fun Spring-themed cards using the Springtime Bunnies stamps. The bunnies in this set are super sweet and I love that this set celebrates both Easter and Spring. The cards I created focus not only those sweet little bunnies but also the cute little carrot and daisy images. Using all the “littles” to create stamped backgrounds [in this case stamped frames], is one of my favorite ways to stretch my stamps.

 

 

Creating the Littles Framed Backgrounds

I positioned a stitched rectangle die at top center of a white card stock panel to create a *mat frame* and a stitched rectangle die cut. I ink-blended orange (Catherine Pooler Orange Twist) and yellow (Distress Oxide Mustard Seed & Catherine Pooler Tiara) to the stitched rectangles. Then I randomly stamped the *littles* images in different directions on the entire mat frames. I colored all the images with Copics. For the carrots I used: YR02, 04 and for the Spring Flowers I used: B0000, G05,14; Y06, 08, 35; YR07,16; RV21, B0000.

 

Adding the Sweet Little Bunny Elements

For the bunnies, I stamped, colored with Copics and fussy cut the images. For the bunnies I used N0, N1 and W0, W1. I made a few cuts with my cutting blade so the bunnies could carry an easter egg or flower blooms that I also stamped, colored and fussy cut. Doesn’t that bunny with the little flowers look so sweet; “Of course you can stay in my garden and pick all my flowers”...I would never say to my garden bunnies in real life...but on this card...absolutely. :-)

Finishing the Cards

To finish the cards, I used liquid adhesive to attach the “littles” Framed Background and ink blended rectangle to the card base. I find using liquid adhesive gives me a little flexibility to get things straight. Then I layered an oval die cut in the center of the rectangle and attached the bunnies with adhesive foam squares. I heat embossed Happy Easter and Happy spring to a black sentiment strip and adhered them to the bottom of the rectangle with foam adhesive squares. 

 

There we are friends, a fun way to use all those “littles” to create sweet Happy Easter and Spring celebration cards using the Springtime Bunnies stamp set. I hope you enjoyed this post and look forward to seeing you again soon on the Miss Ink Stamps Blog. Until then you can see more projects from me on my Instagram Feed @popsofpaper and on my Pops of Paper blog.

Big Paper Hugs!
