YUM BUNNY

A few years ago, Stampin' Up! introduced the cutest chocolate bunny stamp. It looked really real! I fell in love. Even though I haven't had much chance to use this stamp in the past, I decided to resurrect him to make my little granddaughter Stella's Easter card.


The bunny stamp is about 2 1/2" tall. While adorable just that size, I wanted to make my chocolate bunny be a part of an Easter vignette, and I didn't have any of the accompanying images to match that size and look somewhat realistic. 

That's when I hit on SHRINK PLASTIC! I stamped my bunny on shrink plastic, carefully cut him out,  and used my heat tool to bring him down to size. 

The detail in this stamp is pretty cool. But shrunk to an even smaller size and then add to it the shiny hard look of the plastic, it makes him look even more like a real chocolate bunny.


Anyway, I hope Stella likes her yum bunny card, and that it brings a smile to her darling face.


Yum
Smiles.
