Hoppy Easter – MSC Card Sample
(inside sentiment: Hoppy Easter!)
For my card sample, I used a few of the stamps from the Newton’s Nook Designs – Bunny Hop stamp set along with the Gina Marie Designs – 4×4 Stitched Quilt Die #2. Both of these items are available at Kat Scrappiness who is one of the Mod Squad Challenge sponsors this week .

For the quilt, I used digital paper from a set called Happy Easter by Pininkie that I purchased on Etsy. The panels on the quilt are pretty small, so I needed small-patterned prints. With digital paper, you can choose how big or small to print your panel which varies the size of the pattern. You can see this if you look at the egg print on my card. The panel for the quilt was printed small (3.5 x 5 with “fit picture to frame” unchecked) and the panel for the background strip was printed larger (4 x 6). You can see the difference in the size of the eggs.
In addition to the digital paper, I also used white and Gina K Lemon Drop card stock.
The bunny image was stamped on white card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored with Copic markers (YG03, R85, R81, BV20, C0, Y11, Y13, and Y15), and fussy cut. It was then adhered to the circle panels cut with dies from the Spellbinders Standard Circle Dies (large) and Spellbinders Standard Circle Dies (small) sets. I used the EK Tools 2-Point Flag Large Tag Punch to shape the ends of the accent panels behind the circles.
The Cuttlebug Scrollwork Embossing Folder was used on the white circle and the white background panel to add a bit of fun texture.
I wanted my background egg panel to have stitched sides to match the stitched patterned on the quilt, so I used a die from the Gina Marie Designs – Stitched Rectangle Dies set (also available from Kat Scrappiness. The set didn’t contain a rectangle in the size I needed so I just used one edge of a larger rectangle and “stiched” just the top and bottom edges of my strip.
