For the border on the bottom of this page, I “shaped” the stamp on my block in a wave before stamping.  When coloring the bunnies, I used the Colorless Blender to remove some of the Warm Grey from the faces and then added a little pink to the cheeks.  I also used the Colorless Blender for some shading on the ears.Products Used: Easter Bunny Stamp Set, Hello Lovely Paper Packet, Hello Lovely Complements, Black Memento Ink, Rose Gold Foil Tape, Gold Glitter Gems, Marvy Uchida LePen Journaling Pen, Blush Shimmer Ribbon, and ShinHan Markers (Warm Grey 4, Sap Green, Mahogany, Tender Pink, Colorless Blender).

On this next layout, I used the Waterbrush and inks to color the Picture My Life Watercolor Card and then stamped with Memento Ink.

Products Used: Easter Bunny Stamp Set, Whimsy Fundamentals Paper, Picture My Life Watercolor Cards – GoldBlack Memento Ink, Fern Ink, Sorbet Ink, Waterbrush – Medium RoundGold Glitter Gems, Hello Lovely ComplementsGold Shimmer Brush, Whimsy Ribbon Pack, Marvy Uchida LePen Journaling Pen, and ShinHan Markers (Pastel Peach, Barely BeigeClay, Peony Purple, Cerulean Blue LightMarigold).

Supplies used: Close to My Heart Flower Market Cricut Cartridge, Black vinyl, and printable vinyl.

I’ve wanted to make a sign for my on my front door and thought this was the perfect time to try something out.  A new door is on my wishlist so it’s not a big deal if I mess it up and with our first snowstorm in the forecast I am in the mood for the holidays.  Since I didn’t have white vinyl I used the printable and it worked just fine.  I really wanted to add the snowflakes but wanted them to be in white.  I definitely see more projects like this in the future!
