Happy Easter greetings to you all! I hope everyone is having fun with friends and family today, hunting or decorating eggs, and eating great food and lots of chocolate :)
If you’re not a chocolate lover, maybe you like those little sugar-studded marshmallow critters that show up right around this time each year – Peeps! I got this sweet stamp set in my card kit from Simon Says Stamp this month, and I couldn’t wait to use it.
Of course, these are little bunny-shaped Peeps, not the chick ones. I can’t imagine what the stamp images would have come out like if they had gone the chick route…
Anyhow, I used the bunny outline stamps to create a background for my card. To color them in, I got out some chalk inks. I was looking to create a soft, marshmallow-inspired color palette. The colored bunny images are stamped a little off from the outline. I didn’t pay much attention to coverage either, to give my background a fun and carefree look.
Trimming the edges with a stitched wafer die was the next step, then I cut my ribbon from white and the sentiment frame from white and yellow. That helped me to put it together like an inlay. I colored my ribbon shape with a Copic marker to create an ombré effect.
Finally, I stamped my sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black, then colored in “HUGS” with the same marker I used for my ribbon. I adhered everything on with a mixture of thin and regular foam squares for dimension and voila! A peep-filled Easter greeting to tuck into a basket for a friend.
Thanks for taking time out of your day to see my peep-filled Easter greetings card. If you liked the post, go ahead and share the love by pinning it on Pinterest!
