Bunny Stitch Spring Frolic

Hello there crafty peeps, Lisa Hoel here! The weeks keep flying by and spring is getting closer and closer. The theme this time around is "Spring Frolic". Everything is still grey and brown here so it was fun to create a bright and cheerful spring project. I am in love with the seasonal Idea-ology Tiny Eggs and Salvaged Rabbits (stock up!) so I knew they had to make an appearance in my project.

The base is a vintage silver plate basket I had in my stash.

Tim Holtz did a great live demo last month covering several ways to alter the Tiny Eggs and Salvaged Rabbits. (Hot tip: he now divides the videos into time stamped sections so with a single click you can get right to the part of the video you want to review. So handy!) I wanted to make a chocolate bunny and try making foiled eggs. They turned out so cute!

I also decorated the back so it's interesting from all sides. The Bunny Stitch Die Set is a new one that I love. Those bunnies will be showing up in future projects too!

Love the foiled eggs!!

The carrots are from the Bunny Stitch Die Set too and I incorporated one of the Collage Layer Frames to make that panel. Flowers are made using the Tiny Tattered Florals Die Set.

Here are a few "in process" steps.

1) Base - I hot glued a chunk of styrofoam into my vintage basket to form the base. I then hot glued some Vintage style Easter Grass over that.

2) I created a little layered collage on the back using a label from the new Idea-ology Transparent Things 2, stamping and Curator Snippets pieces with the bunny die cut. I like the effect of things underneath the transparent pieces showing through.

3) Assembling - Memo Pins hold the cards in place and stuck easily into the foam. I arranged the bunny, eggs, flowers and spun cotton mushrooms and glued them in place. This was a fun little project!
