Hoppy Easter

This is my post on the 
Dies R Us blog today.

Today is my first Easter card for this year!
There are so many dies to be found at the Dies R Us online store for Easter
and I have a few fun ones to show you.
However, keep in mind, lots of the Easter dies can be used year round....
bunnies and chicks make great baby and children cards!

My first thought was a bit of 'Easter grass".
A great choice is Impression Obsession Grass Border
(slightly different from what I have used).
Make sure and type in the word 'GRASS'
in the search button
and there are several choices!

I placed three bunnies in the grass, 
cut from Frantic Stamper Easter Icons.
Notice the bow on the basket?
That die is part of the Easter Icons set!!

Speaking of the basket, it is a Memory Box die
that is no longer available at the store,
but if your type in "BASKET
you will have a beautiful selection to choose from!
Poppystamps Country Baskets is a great choice
and it comes in two sizes for one price!!

I filled my basket with grass from Impression Obsession Mini Bunnies set.
The grass is included with the bunny dies and can be cut separate.
I also added Memory Box Baby Chicks to the basket.
These were cut with a 'velour' paper and are 'fuzzy' in 'real life'.

To finish I simply stamped my sentiment on a scrap piece 
then cut it out using Impression Obsession Clouds.

I hope you have enjoyed my fun card today!

Yes, everything on your card could be used for other occasions. Absolutely every bit of it. Your little polka dot bunnies are so cute and I just love the basket with the chicks. I just ordered some great IO grass and a basket, and I love my Cheery Lynn Bunnies. They can all be used for lots of things. Such a darling card today, Diane!

Such a fun card with all these lovely little Easter cuties. You're right of course, they would also be a good choice for baby cards too. Love the grass border!
