CTMH March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop featuring Sensational Season

Who's ready to do the bunny hop?  The March Stamp of the Month is Sensational Season - a set of 10 stamps with a vintage bunny theme.  If you have come here from Nicole's Blog, you are on the right path! The bunny hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around by clicking on the links at the bottom of each post.

When I got this stamp set I immediately thought of making some carrot shaped Easter treat holders so I channeled my inner-Beatrix Potter and got to work making some of the CUTEST little bunny things for my kids this year!  Check out little Peter rabbit... don't you just want to squeeze his little bunny cheeks?  


I used our new 2" scallop punch on some White Daisy cardstock, embossed the images in Cocoa embossing powder and colored in using our ink pads and Waterbrush.  I just started using the Waterbrush a couple of weeks ago and I love the control and soft watercolor look you can achieve with this tool.  I also used our new 12" Kraft borders at the top of each box to help make each project unique for each kid.


Here is the top for each carrot box.
I was having so much fun with this stamp set I just couldn't stop - the Beatrix force was strong in me that day!  So I also made two 12x12 sheets of random stamp and Waterbrush colored paper to use later for more Easter projects.  On these larger sheets I stamped in Cocoa INK instead of doing the embossing - it was faster and gave an even softer vintage look to these papers.




Now "Hop" on over to Tonya's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the SOTM is only available until March 31, 2011 - to get this set at a discount or free visit my website at Paige.MyCTMH.com!
