Creative {Quest}

Yesterday at The Creative Quest -- my local rubber stamp store that I like (in Glendale) - they had a 1o card class -- where you pay a dollar a card and can stamp as many as you would like. The cards were easter and spring cards. I decided on two that I wanted to do, and went to work. Unfortunately, I don't remember who made each of the stamps -- but if you want to search, and let me know, I will update.

The first card has the most adorable bunny on it. The brown layer is a textured cardstock and the sentiment "Happy Chocolate Day" was stamped in brown colorbox ink. The bunnies were stamped in staz on black and colored using twinkling H2O's (I had never done this before). It is just gorgeous in real life. Then the little pink flowers (which are plastic) are attached using a brad. I modified my card from the original in the store a bit because I decided I would like it this way instead.

The second card was this pretty bunny. He was stamped in a brown ink (similar to staz-on) and heat set. Then he was colored with markers. Since when I stamped my bunny, I missed a corner of my paper completely, I did some direct to paper technique on the edges with the purple ink, to "fix" it. I think it looks okay. The sentiment "Happy Easter" was then stamped on a few places at random. The ribbon was done by punching two holes in the green cardstock (which is gorgeous and filled with sparklies in real life) and then I used the perfect bow method to make it look cute! I like this card, but I like my first one better!

All in all I had a fun time stamping at the Creative Quest. I fell in love with the H2O's and bought myself a pack of 12. They are just so simple and yet so stunning. I also got myself an egg stamp to play with and I plan to do that soon! Can you believe easter is on the way already?
