Day 2 of our February Countdown is full of the sweetest things you’ve ever seen! Introducing the new On the Bunny Trail stamps and dies and Quilted die. If you love bunnies, decorative eggs, carrots, and all things Easter, this post is just for you!
I began my card by using the darling Quilted die to create my background on my Sweet Blush card base. I then used the Stencil Basics: Dots and Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste over my stencil. This creates such a fun, sparkly background. Next came the Mix & Mat: Confetti die cut, using two coordinating patterns of paper.
My focal point was built on a die cut Psalm Reflections: February die. I used the Cloud Stencils and Sweet Blush ink to create my cloudy, pastel sky and added grass across the bottom. I then built my scene using sweet images from On the Bunny Trail. I adore the tiny banners, peeking bunny, crate or sign, carrots, grassy border, and eggs.
Create a sign directing others down the Bunny Trail or turn it over to create a wooden crate that can be filled with Easter eggs, carrots, or the darling bunny. There are so many delightful ways to use this stamp set. It was designed to coordinate with the farm truck from our Patriot die collection. Enjoy the creative way many of our designers have used the truck in conjunction with On the Bunny Trail!

Next up today are our gorgeous, new Wild Blooms Stencils and Cornered: Spring dies. These new floral stencils are so much fun to create with. Whether you are going for an elegant, classic look or bright and whimsical feel, you’ll find so much joy creating with them. And the Cornered: Spring dies are completely glamorous and add so much texture and dimension to your cards. Let’s jump into the projects!
My first card uses the Cornered: Spring dies in all four corners of my Spring Moss cardstock base. Use these dies on one or all corners of your card…the choice is yours and you’ll love the results. I then added a vellum die cut oval to help frame in my focal point without detracting from the gorgeous base.
I used a Love to Layer: Oval in which to stencil my Wild Blooms on. I chose to use Lilac Grace, Amethyst Allure Bright Buttercup, Green Parakeet, and Ocean Tides and love the fresh, spring feel.
I stamped my sentiment on a die cut Tag Creations: Delightful Bunch label and used a sentiment from the new Vase Collection 15 stamp set.

I stenciled in Melon Berry, Berry Sorbet, Scarlet Jewel, Green Parakeet, Ripe Avocado, Ocean Tides, Lilac Grace, and Bright Buttercup. Aren’t these blooms so beautiful? This stencil collection is one you’ll have a hard time putting down.
I used a sentiment from the new Just Sentiments: Welcome Spring stamp set, stamping it on a die cut Birthday Tag Kit die. I framed in my sentiment using flowers from the new Into the Blooms: Clover die collection.
