E is for Easter with the Sisterhood!

Spring has sprung (except, perhaps, for snarky sister Jessi), so Easter must be on its way as well! What better time for the latest Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge: 



I snuck just the teensiest bit of snark into my card.


It's hard to go wrong with this Paper Smooches bunny! I decided I wanted him popping out of this little frame (which I've had in my stash o' die cuts so long, I can't tell you where it came from... I think it's Papertrey Ink paper and die, but I'm not at all sure). It's too hard to resist adding glossy accents to his eyes and teeth. A little vellum behind the frame softens the colours underneath. I was inspired by the current Shopping Our Stash challenge to make my own background for him. Nothing too fancy... patted some Memento teardrop ink pads onto some butcher paper, spritzed with some yellow/gold mist, then smushed my cardstock into it. After it dried, I dry embossed it for some extra texture. Orange and yellow are far from go-to colours for me, but they just seemed to work here.
As well as Shopping our Stash, this is being entered into Paper Smooches SPARKS Anything Goes challenge. 
Now it's your turn! Be sure to check out the creations of my Snarky Sisters, as well as this week's guest designers, Majo and Glo. I hope you'll join us! 


Supplies: white & orange cardstock, vellum, Papertrey Ink (?) patterned paper, Paper Smooches A Little Lovin' stamps, Colorbox truffle & Memento dandelion, cantaloupe & tangerine inks, Zing clear embossing powder, Papertrey Ink (?) & Paper Smooches word bubble dies, Cuttlebug seeing spots embossing folder, Art Anthology timeless colour mist, glossy accents, pop-dot tape & squares

Smushing?? I like that. Makes it sound like a stress reliever. Love the look and I actually like these 2 colors, although I don't use them that often. Love the bunny too.

It's hard to make a snarky card for Easter isn't it? LOL This bunny is too stinkin' cute, and I'm all about the chocolate too! Fun card!

that is a fantastic bunny! I don't think your bunny needs anymore chocolate or coffee. I think the colors are perfect (and they are also not my go to colors).

Way to make orange and yellow look amazing! Love that goofy PS bunny and of course your have to add GA to the eyes and teeth! I think it's mandatory.

*sobs* But I WANT SPRING TOOOOOO! Although it's gone above zero a couple times this week. Maybe it's coming. I am in love with the awesome background you made, and how you shaded the bunny!
