Stampin' Up Easter Basket Easter Lamb, Bunny, Chick, Cadbury Egg Treat Holder VI

What a gorgeous day it was yesterday!  Beautiful sunshine, hardly any wind and 65 degree's out!  The snow has all disappeared and, yes, our road is a mess again!  It rained last night too which just adds to the soupy mess!

Today is the last blog post for my Easter Basket series:

Pictured above is the Easter Basket that I sent to Kadie for the door prize for her down line meeting!

And, here's the tag that I made for the basket.  A Sweet little bunny!

I die cut the flower tag from Stampin' Up's Blushing Bride Designer Series Paper using the largest die in SU's Flower Frames Collection Framelits dies.

Using SU's Friends & Flowers Stamp Set, I stamped the bunny head and ears on SU's Shimmery White Cardstock using Black Memento Ink.  

I punched out the bunny's head using SU's 1-3/8" Circle Punch and the bunny's ears using SU's Festive Flower Builder Punch.

I water colored the outside of the bunny's ears and the bunny's face using one of SU's Aqua Painters and SU Mint Macaron Ink.  For the inside of the bunny's ears, I used SU's Blushing Bride Ink.

I added some of SU's Crystal Effects for the bunny's nose to make it stand out.

Using Blushing Bride Ink and the small round stamp in SU's Balloon Builder's Stamp Set, I stamped the bunny's cheeks, stamping off once onto scrap paper and then stamping without re-inking onto the bunny.

After the bunny head, ears and Crystal Effects were dry, I adhered the ears to the head using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I had a piece of a SU Dotted Cone Cello Bag left over and used it to make a bow tie by tying it up with some of SU's Retired Mossy Meadow Bakers Twine.  I adhered the bow to the bunny using a rolled up Glue Dot.

I adhered the bunny to the flower tag using SU's Stampin' Dimensionals.

Using SU's 1/8" Handheld Punch, I punched a hole in the top petal of the tag and used some Retired Tangelo Twist Thick Bakers Twine to tie the tag to the basket and into a pretty bow.

That's all I have for today!  Come back tomorrow and I'll show you a little chick Easter card.  Have a great day!

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  Please be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
