Hi Friends and Happy Tuesday! Hello Spring!! I don’t know about you but I can’t wait for the snow to melt, flowers to bloom, birds to sing and bunnies to start hopping! While it might still be winter outside, it’s definitely Spring in the craft room with the Taylored Expressions Easter Release! Let me tell you all the bunnies in this release are sooooo A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E—I can’t to show you what I created!
The All Together-Easter stamp + die it is SUPER COOL! It’s one stamp + die that cuts out ALL the little images at one time! One stamp + Die = 16 images!! Then when you add it with the Big Circles Cutting Plate it takes simple & cute cardmaking to an entirely new level as each circle is the perfectly sized to fit each of the All Together images! The other really fun find is that the Cap it Off Alphas fit perfectly in the center of the Big Circles. I couldn’t help myself and created two cards to make sure I could use all the cute images from the set.
Before using the Circle Cutting Plate, I did some tone-on-tone stamping with the Diagonal Diamonds Background stamp with Potato Chip cardstock & Ink and Granny Smith Ink on Lime Zest cardstock. I double-stacked the circle cutting plate and adhered it to a white card base. All the of the images where stamped with Oreo ink and color with an assortment on Copic Markers and white gel accents. I finished both cards with a heat embossed sentiment from Mini Strips-Easter.

My next card uses the Adorable I’m a Hugger-Bunny with the Present Treat Wrap & Basket Accessory and for the the background the He First Loved Us Stamp & Stencil Combo stamped and ink blended to Sprinkles cardstock with Confetti Cake Ink.
I die cut the bunny, tail and feet from sugar cube cardstock plus Cupcake ears and Sea Salt toes. Then I stamped the bunny face & nose in Oreo & Cupcake using the clear stamps that come with the set. To turn the bunny into a hugger you just need to fold the bottom of the bunny and attach his feet and cotton tail. To hug the basket, I used the Present Treat Wrap + Basket accessory, attached the basket handle and trimmed down the the bottom of the basket with scissors to fit inside the bunny’s hands. For the finishing touches, I added a white frill from the Treat Wrap Basket accessory and the bow from the Present Treat Wrap. The silver heat embossed Happy Easter sentiment is from the Mini Strips-Easter set that I backed with white glitter cardstock using the Mini Strips Backer die.

For my last card, I used the Free Gift with Qualifying Purchase Be Hoppy Stamp & Stencil set. When you make a purchase of $100 or more today through Thursday, May 9th, in the TE webstore, you will receive the Be Hoppy Stamp & Stencil Combo set FREE! Stamp and stencil an adorable background of bunnies for your Easter and spring projects! Please note that this promotional set replaces our March incentive set during this release week. Offer valid while supplies last.
The Be Hoppy stamp is reverse background where you stamp the entire background in one solid color leaving the images the color of your cardstock (in this case…white hippity-hoppity bunnies with a Confetti Cake Inked background). I used the coordinating stencil to add the rainbow bunny tails.
For extra dimension, I added Bits & Pieces Clear Drip Drops using Nuvo Liquid Adhesive to each of the bunny tails. I die-cut the stamped panel using A2 Layer Stacklets which I added with 1 x 3 foam strips to a an Diagnonal Diamonds background in Oyster Ink. To finish the card, I added the pink & white embossed Easter Mini Strip and adhered all the panels to an Oyster card base.
