Put a little HOP in your step!

Welcome to the Crazy about Cricut Bday Blogaversary Bash Hop!  You should have arrived here from Shawnee's blog.  Make sure to go to http://crazyaboutcricut.blogspot.com/ to start at the beginning of this hop so that you don't miss any of the projects.

I had SO MUCH FUN making this card!

I am a fan of PEEPS . . . yes, those little sugar covered marshmallow bunnies that are everywhere this time of year.  As a child when my sister's and I would get our Easter baskets, we would always trade candy . . . I will give you this many of something I don't like for this many of something you don't like.  I always ended up with LOTS of PEEPS.

When I first received the new Hoppy Spring stamp set from Blue Moon Creations, I had visions of PEEP related projects.


For this card I started with some white paper and tapped of a portion of it.  Then I used a teal, pink and yellow ink to just randomly apply some color to the white paper.  Since it was taped off, I could smear and smudge my inks, and blend them into each other, but I knew that I would have a nice clean line when I removed the tape.

I used a stamp from the Hoppy Spring set to create the scalloped border edge, and another stamp from the same set for the It's Your Birthday sentiment.



Inside the card I stamped the sentiment Put a little HOP in your step.


I love how these PEEP bunnies sparkle!  I cut all of them on my Pazzles machine out of the rhinestone sticker sheets from The Buckle Boutique.

  1. OMG I love the bling bunnies! Hope you don't mind a scraplift! I was going to make one large bunny with the rhinestone sticker sheet, but I think the four little ones are even cuter.
