SSS Hoppy Days Ahead

Hi cardies and welcome back.  I have 3 cards to share with you today created with the SSS Hoppy Days Ahead Card Kit for March.  There is such an adorable stamp set in this kit and I really enjoyed coloring the little images.  Normally I try and use just what’s in the box, but I was feeling restless today and I needed to venture outside the box (literally) and bring in some additional products to finish off my cards.  See a list of kit contents at the end of this post.


three handmade easter cards created with card making products from Simon Says Stamp

I seem to have been on an embossing folder kick of late, so I added a few to these cards.

Hoppy Days Ahead Card #1

Start by using the Misti to stamp the bunny images a couple of times.

All of the bunnies are colored with Copic markers

Gray/brown W1, W3, W5 – Brown:  E40, E43, E44 – Gray:  T1, T2, T3, T5 – Pinks:  R23, R30

Next, fussy cut out the bunnies.

Place a 3-3/4 x 5 piece if Hammermill white card inside the Magnolia Branches Embossing Folder and run it through the die cutting machine.

Attach it to a white A2 top folding card base.

Use the Nested Eggs Dies (2nd largest) to cut an egg out of Lavender card stock and then emboss it with the Geometric Lattice embossing folder

Attach the egg to the front of the card, then the bunnies and a sentiment.

Hoppy Days Ahead Card #2

This is my favorite of the three.

Emboss a piece of 3-3/4 x 5 Neenah Desert Storm card stock with the Splendid Leaves Circle Frame Embossing Folder.  Then attach it to a top folding A2 card base in white.

Die cut the heart from the pattern paper in the kit and center it on the card .

Next, Use foam squares to attach the bunnies and then glue on their pop pop tails

Finally, add a sentiment.

Card #3

I changed it up with the Tumbling Hearts Stencil and ink blended the background with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink

Next, add the bunnies with foam squares to add a bit of dimension.

Finally, add the sentiments and some colored hearts.

  1. Bonjour Sandi,
    These sweet bunnies are so precious. CARD #2 -Choosing brown tone is not usual, BUT it is i a nice choice with the heart print (wall?) The emboss background, add a 3D effect.
    CARD #1, I like the emboss egg style. Not having the emboss plate, I can use the scoring board and an egg die cut, it would take longer. I have to try it. Your idea for the egg is very nice.
    The choice of all your materials are very nice for all of these creations

    1. Bonjour Yolande. So glad you liked the cards. I tried to change it up for each one and bring in different elements. You could use any embossing folder or stamp to decorate the die cut egg, or your score board for sure. I had a brown bunny once, hence the color and when I looked on the blog, everyone had painted the bunnies white – so you know me, dare to be different, haha. And, I don’t make a lot of brown cards – but I really liked that pattern paper, so I dove in, haha

  2. Hi, Sandi – I looked at this kit and, trying to be fiscally responsible (ahem!), decided I did not need it. It’s so stinkin’ cute, though… I just love everything I see that y’all have made with it. Maybe I will reconsider and use less electricity this month LOL. Your cards are all darling!
