Some Bunny Loves You Easter Card | Nested Peeps

Spring feels like it's right around the corner here and it's definitely gotten me into the mood for creating some spring and Easter themed cards. Today I'm sharing this Some Bunny Loves You Easter Card that features a fun set of dies from including their Nested Peeps Die Set. Keep reading as I walk you through how I created this mixed media shabby style Easter card and make sure to take a close look at the background. There is so much detail there and photos don't seem to do it the justice it deserves!

Some Bunny Loves You Easter Card by Juliana Michaels featuring  Nested Peeps Dies, Sunny Lane Floral Dies and Hippity Hoppity Stamp Set

Speaking of backgrounds, let's start there. I began with a piece of Distress Watercolor Paper cut to 4.25 x 5.5 inches. Using the Mosaic A2 Coverplate Die, I embossed the paper. If you are new to the technique I share the details about it here. After embossing the paper, smooshed my Old Paper Distress Ink Pad onto my craft mat, spritzed it with water and smooshed the paper into the ink. I dried it with my heat tool. I then repeated this process with Spun Sugar Distress Ink.

I then took a palette knife and applied Distress Crackle Paste around the edges and here and there on the background to add a little texture. I then set the background to the side to air dry and allow the paste to crackle.

Next I took a piece of Distress Watercolor Paper and die cut it using the a bow from the Bow Toppers Die Set and the Sunny Lane Florals Die Set. I then colored the various die cuts using Distress Oxide Ink in the following colors: Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Broken China, Uncharted Mariner and Iced Spruce. I applied the ink using a blending brush. I applied the lighter color first to the entire die cut and then added the darker color to the edge to create some shadows. I then splattered the pieces with water, dabbed the water with a paper towel to lift off some of the ink and then dried them with my heat tool. The final step was to add some ink splatters to them using Distress Oxide Sprays. To do this, shake the bottle well and then remove the nozzle and use it to flick the ink onto the paper. You would also use a long thin paint brush to do this as well. I then dried the ink with my heat tool.

Now for that Peep! The Nested Peeps Die Set is SO fun and versatile. Whether you are a card maker, scrapbooker or creating party decor, this set has you covered! There are 5 dies and they range in size from 7.6 inches tall to just over 1 inch tall! This die set is part of an awesome Peeps Bundle that is available now at  The Peeps dies coordinate with the stamps so you can use the dies to cut out the peep shaped stamps! I've also used the stamp set from this bundle on this card!


Here I've used the middle size and die cut a piece of Distress Watercolor Paper and inked it using Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink. I added a little Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide to the edges and then added some splatters using Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide Spray Stain and dried the ink with my heat tool. I wanted this to look like a Peep, so I then applied Glossy Accents to the entire die cut and while this was still wet, I sprinkled it with Distress Rock Candy Glitter. I tapped off the excess glitter and then set the piece to the side to dry. I applied the Glossy Accents a little too thick, so when it was finally dry, the paper was a little bowed. As I tried to flatten it out, the Glossy Accents cracked here and there. The end result added a nice touch of distress to my Peep and I love how it turned out.

Once all the die cutting was completed, I adhered the Peep to the background using Therm O Web Super Tape. I then adhered the various flowers and leaves using a combination of liquid adhesive (I prefer Distress Collage Medium) and double sided foam squares.

For the final touch, I stamped the sentiment from the Hippity Hoppity Stamp Set onto Distress Watercolor paper using Distress Archival Ink in Frayed Burlap. I trimmed it into a strip and inked the edges with Old Paper Distress Ink. I then adhered it to the card using double sided foam adhesive.

Thanks so much for stopping by today to take a closer look at my Some Bunny Loves You Easter Card featuring the Nested Peeps, Sunny Lane Florals, Bow Toppers and Hippity Hoppity Stamp Set.
