Peter Rabbit Inspired

I love this stamp set and have been on the hunt for it for the last year or so. In case any of you were wondering...I might have a small fixation with bunnies! When I was pregnant with my son I designed a Beatrix Potter "Peter Rabbit" nursery in gender neutral colours. Since then, both my son and daughter have used it and it has remained classic and cheery :) You will have to pardon the terrible photos as they were taken 4 years ago on my first digital camera!

I saw this stamp set and knew that it had to be mine as the little bunny out front reminds me of Peter Rabbit! I love this stamp set so much that I finally found somebody willing to give it a new home and here was the first card that I have made with it! I tried to keep it fairly gender neutral with muted tones of some primary and secondary colours.

Tip: It's very easy to add some texture to your card by placing a piece of designer paper in an embossing folder and running it through your cuttlebug (one of my best card making tools ever!!!)

Card Recipe:

Stamps: Birthday Bunny
Paper: Cosmo Cricket DP, Papertrey White, Mellow Moss, Versa Mark
Ink: Mellow Moss, Soft Sky, Bashful Blue and Various Reinker Colours for the bunnies
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Sewing Machine, Embossing Powders, Dimensionals, Aqua Painter, Re-inkers, Stickles, Sponges, Brads
