Maki is today’s Timeless Tuesday challenge hostess and asked us to create an Easter project or card. As soon as I read the challenge, I knew I wanted to use those adorable bunnies from Spring is Sprung.

I started by cutting the edges of a 6 1/4″ wide piece of white cardstock with a Classic Edge 2 die as well as a die from Classic Decorative Inserts die.  I scored the strip at 3″ and 6″ before stamping the bunny image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on one of the 3″ panels, above the embossed edge. The image was colored with Copic Markers (Bunnies: E40, E41, E42, E43, R00, R20   Flowers: Y13, Y15, Y17, RV10, B63, B66, G43, G46   Grass: YG01, YG03, YG17   Sky: B0000, B000).

A 6 1/2″ x 7″ piece of Kraft cardstock was scored at 3″ and 6″ on the 6 1/2″ side and adhered into a tube.The bunny strip was adhered around that tube. A 1 1/2″ x 6″ piece of MME Lost & Found 2 Rosy Patterned paper was stitched to a white cardstock strip. It was adhered above the bunny image strip. A rhinestone border bling was adhered to the bottom edge of the patterned paper layer and ribbon was tied around it. It was topped with a button, tied on with embroidery thread.

A hole was punched on top and ribbon threaded through it. Next a Hershey bar was pushed down into the tube and the ribbon on top was tied with a piece of embroidery thread. A sentiment from the same set was stamped on the lower right corner of the tube. Three small rhinestones on the embossed strip finish off the pull treat holder.

Today is the third release day of Flourishes new stamps. The design team is featuring the He Is Risen set. It is a gorgeous new Easter set.

For my sample I used the main image. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Petite Oval Nestabilities die and colored with Copic Markers (Lilies: Y13, Y15, Y17, YR15   Flower Stems: YR18, E37, E29   Leaves: G40, G43, G46  Small Flowers: B45, Y17   Cross: E70, E71, E74, E23). A few white lines were added to the cross with a white Faber-Castel white pastel pen.

The edges of the oval were first sponged with Antique Linen, then just a touch with Vintage Photo Distress ink. It was first layered on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Scallop Oval Nestabilities die, then on piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Lace Doily Motifs die.

A 2″x 5″ piece of the new My Mindy’s Eye Be Happy Follow Your Heart paper was adhered to a 5″ square of the same paper pack. The edges of the papers were sanded before it was stitched to a 1/4″ bigger piece of Kraft cardstock. Seam Binding was tied around the vertical strip and topped with an October Afternoon Button before the image layers were adhered to the paper layers. Everything was adhered to a 5 1/2″ square white card base.

A sentiment from the same set was stamped to a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Parisian Accents and Motifs die. The embossed part was sponged and adhered to the lower right of the image.  Pearls and part of of a Pearl swirl finish off the card.
