PP531 Hello Spring

Hi stampers!  Happy Sunday!  It's time for a new Paper Players challenge; Claire is our hostess with this lovely theme challenge:


Oh my, so many choices!  In the end I opted to use that little bunny in the corner as my inspiration!  I pulled out one of my favorite old SU sets called Hello Spring!  And here we go:

I had this piece of retired magnolia paper on my desk for another project and although Petal Pink is a hard color for me to work with, I thought it would make a nice spring card!  I had an idea to make a wreath, but most of the wreath stamps I had were too "flimsy".  Then I remembered a fall wreath stamp that I had from Fun Stampers Journey, so after adhering my DSP to my cardstock, I stamped it in Soft Suede, then embellished it with a few little springy flowers and twigs...and of course, a bunny:

The sentiment is from the same set, although I cut it apart so that I could create a linear sentiment on a banner; I added a little Pierced Bloom diecut flower too:

I just love that little bunny!  What will inspire you from our photo?  Spring is definitely in the air, so get out your stamps, ink and paper and create something springy, then share it with us at the Paper Players blog!  Check out what the design team did as well!  Thanks for popping in today!

Dana spent a few minutes trying to teach Cassidy to crochet....not sure how long it will last, neither of them have a lot of patience, LOL!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

The wreath stamp looks like it was die cut! Love it!! This is such a cute card and I still have some DSP left. Maybe I'll CASE your card for the challenge :-D Crocheting is so much fun...I hope she sticks with it.

This is such a sweet Spring card, LeAnne! Love the twiggy wreath against the soft pink and the rabbit is adorable!

So pretty in pink! I had a hard time seeing this was a stamped wreath, and not a die cut - it's wonderful, LeAnne!
Cutest little bunny!

Ann Schach said...

Pretty in pink, LeAnne! I also thought this was a die cut wreath at first glance. I love the little flowers and the cute bunny. A perfect spring card!!!

Lorraine said...

That's a sweet little wreath with that precious bunny. Lovely!

Norma rennie said...

I love your card . Like the wreath and the bunny and flowers on it. Can you tell me if the wreath stamp is still available and where the bunny and flowers come from two and if it’s available. Thank you Norma Rennie

That bunny is beyond cute and I love the fresh, soft colour palette - perfect for spring!

Amanda Mertz said...

Such a cutie! He's made himself right at home among the flowers! Great papers too! The bunnies are roaming our yard lately giving our dog lots to think about lol! Have a great week!

Debbie Crowley said...

LeAnne, this is a beauty and a cutie! Love the wreath mixed with the Petal Pink. Your flower cluster is a perfect backdrop for that adorable bunny! Enjoy your week.

Love your magnolia paper and that bunny nestled among those flowers and leaves! Such a darling card. Speaking of bunnies, not five minutes ago my hubby and I discovered a bunny nest in our back yard. We could even see the babies. They don't even have their eyes open yet. We have a wild bunny that we feed by hand for the past three years or so but this is the first time we have seen a nest. I hope they survive.

Love that wreath! Adorable card! I never had the patience to knit or crochet either and my mother always did!

Claire Broadwater said...

LeAnne, I love this card! From the pretty DSP to that gorgeous floral wreath, your card shouts Spring. That little bunny is so cute, too! Your card will certainly bring a smile to someone! Thank you for rocking my challenge this week!

Jaydee said...

LeAnne, your adorable bunny frolicking among the flowers is everything! I love this paired with the DSP and the sentiment style is just perfect for the whimsical image. Fab layout, too!
