Materials Needed For The Easter Cards:

Before diving into the excitement, let's ensure we have all the necessary supplies lined up. You'll want to have on hand the Easter Bunnies Stamp Set and the Easter Basket Stamp Set from The Rabbit Hole Designs. Additionally, grab your preferred coloring markers, whether it's Twimarkers or another brand, along with a watercolor paint palette and a trusty paintbrush. Don't forget to include Distress Mica Stains in Wonderland and Sugary Gumdrop for that extra sparkle. Make sure you've got some quality watercolor paper or Bristol cardstock ready to bring your creations to life. Adhesive is a must-have for assembly, and keep handy a pair of scissors or a paper trimmer for precision cutting. If you're feeling fancy, consider embellishing your masterpiece with ribbons, sequins, or gems for that extra touch of flair.

Some Bunny Loves You Easter Card Step-by-Step Tutorial:

1. Stamp Your Images:

Alrighty, let's kick things off by stamping our adorable Easter images onto our chosen paper (the best paper to use with Twimarkers is Bristol Smooth Cardstock or Watercolor Paper). Now, I've had my fair share of mishaps with stamping in the past (who hasn't?), but trust me—using a waterproof ink pad is an absolute game-changer. No smudges in sight!

2. Coloring with Twimarkers:

Now comes the fun part—coloring! I love using Twimarkers for this step because they give me so much control over the shading and blending. Plus, there's something incredibly therapeutic about watching those colors come to life on the page. Just me, my markers, and a cup of tea—bliss!

3. Watercolor Magic:

Here's where things start to get magical. Grab your paintbrush and a little water, and gently brush over your colored areas on the image. It's like watching a watercolor painting come to life right before your eyes! You want to pull the color out from the darker areas to the lighter areas. This creates an easy watercolor look.

4. Adding Texture:

Time to add some pizzazz to our cards! Distress Mica Stains are like little drops of magic—they add just the right amount of shimmer and shine to our Easter scene. And a word to the wise—don't be afraid to get a little messy with this step. Splatter away, my friends!

5. Assemble Your Card:

Once everything is dry (patience is a virtue, my friends), it's time to put it all together. Arrange your bunny, basket, and any other embellishments onto your card base until you're happy with the layout. And don't stress if it takes a few tries to get it just right—card making is all about trial and error!

6. Finishing Touches:

Last but certainly not least, it's time to add those finishing touches. Whether you opt for a heartfelt sentiment or some sparkly sequins, this is where you can really make your card shine. Get creative, have fun, and don't forget to add a little piece of your heart to each card you make.


And there you have it—your very own handmade Easter cards, courtesy of The Rabbit Hole Designs and a little sprinkle of crafting magic. I hope you've enjoyed crafting along with me today, and I can't wait to see the beautiful cards you create!


Remember, the most important thing is to have fun and let your creativity soar. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a newbie crafter, there's something truly special about the joy of creating something with your own two hands.


Until next time, happy crafting, my friends!
