Pop it Ups Designer Challenge - Happy Easter!

Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing my card for Karen Burniston's monthly designer challenge. This month we could choose either a Spring or Easter theme. I had the hardest time deciding which to choose! I had piles of paper out, I cut a bunch of different cards using different dies...finally, I realized I had the perfect stamp set to use, and everything fell into place.

The stamp set is called Easter Bunny, and is made by Oxford Impressions. For the front of my card, I used this cute little bunny. I stamped him with Watering Can Archival ink and colored him with Distress markers. I stamped the image a second time onto coordinating paper and cut out the bow, layering it onto the colored image. The bunny was cut out and adhered to an oval panel cut using the largest oval from Karen's Oval Accordion card die set.

The paper I used is from Hobby Lobby (can't remember the name, but it's in the paper by the sheet section). I added some Lace from Maya Road, paper flowers, and Tim Holtz's Crinkle Ribbon.

To create the card, I cut pink cardstock using Karen's original Pop 'n Cuts base (BTW, these are being discontinued, so you'd better get one while you can!). After I cut the card and scored it in the middle, I used the Pop it Ups Lucy Label die to cut the pop-up. I love the little extra pop-up tab - perfect for my little chick. The chick is also from the same Oxford Impressions stamp set. I stamped it onto Distress Watercolor paper and colored it with Distress markers.

For the label, I cut a piece of the same paper as I used on the front, using the pop-up die. I trimmed the label out and layered it onto the front of the pink pop-up, just to give it some contrast. The sentiment was stamped onto manila cardstock using Watering Can ink and cut using one of the companion dies in the Lucy Label set. I sponged the edges with Spun Sugar Distress ink and adhered it with pop dots.
