Hopping down the Bunny Trail! This Easter Bunny punch art idea is sure to be a pleaser this coming holiday. And the punches are all standard Stampin’ Up! punches that you may have on hand (or that you “need” to add to your collection).
Plus I have a Punch Art Technique Tip for you –
How To Make Punch Art Paws:
Too cute! Here are the punches for the rest of the bunny (click to see the items in my online store):
- 2 1/2″ Circle Punch (120906)
- Small Heart Punch (117193)
- Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack – tiny circle for eyes (118309)
- 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch (129404)* new in this year’s Spring Catalog
These bunnies are cute to add to cards like I did here, or you can add them to create your own bunny treat bag toppers, Easter favors or place card holders for table arrangements! And bunnies are ALWAYS cute for baby shower invitations or favors.
Happy Bunny Stamping!

Supplies for 4 projects — ready to stamp, delivered to your front door.
Here’s a card that includes three windows and three techniques!
- Punch ‘placer’ circles from scratch paper.
- Adhere lightly on card front where holes are desired.
- Punch over the ‘placers’ so that holes will be exactly where you want them.
Second — love the doily on the inside of the card? It’s from the Flirtatious Designer Series Paper (see it online) which is on sale for 25% off while supplies last (or until May 31st). The paper includes 2 sheets of 12 doilies each. Use them all at once, or clip them apart to make them last longer.
Third — like the technique on the flowers? That’s pretty easy, too. Just ink the bold image stamp in Daffodil Delight ink first, then use Stampin’ Sponges to dab Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo onto the stamp before applying to your paper.

Are you hoarding the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper yet? There are only 2 weeks left to add this paper to your collection before Sale-A-Bration runs out! When you have only a few 1/2″ strips left for this paper (or any other paper you love), here is a great project for making the most of them – Patchwork Paper Quilts with the Big Shot Adhesive Sheets (see them online)!
Are you coming to Stamp Club with Meg today? You’ll be making this card as one of your projects. If you can’t make it, here is the ‘how to’ on the Patchwork Technique:
- Cut a piece of neutral card stock to the final size of your patchwork piece.
- Press onto a piece of Big Shot Adhesive Sheet. Remove backing paper and place adhesive-side up on your table.
- Begin with a ½” strip of Designer Series Paper across the center.
- Add strips of paper at right angles, repeating your pattern as desired.
- Trim ends and adhere to project.

Need a quick pick-me-up treat for a school event or a coworker gift? These are a snap to make: I’ll share 2 versions. First, the favor uses the Two Tags Die for the Big Shot (see it online) to create a sweet shaped treat wrap. Second, if you don’t have a Big Shot handy, go ahead and add it to your Wish List, then just use a simple Oval Punch to make these favors.
Version #1: Two Tags Die
- Cut two of the wide tags from a piece of Big Top Birthday Designer Series Paper (see it online).
- Attach the two tags at the bottom with Sticky Strip.
- Add your treat to a Small Cello Bag (see it online), fold over the top of the bag and secure bag with SNAIL adhesive.
- Bring the two tags up to the top and tie with Real Red Satin Ribbon at the top. Add a Rhinestone Brad in the pre-punched hole.
- Stamp the cute bear (I love him!) from the Tagtastic hostess stamp set (see it online) in Real Red and punch him out with the Decorative Label Punch (see it online). Attach with Stampin’ Dimensionals
And here is Version #2: Well Worn
Instead of the Two Tags Die, just fold 3 x 8″ piece of Designer Series Paper (Well Worn shown here — see it online). Pinching the tops together, use the Large Oval Punch to punch through both sides at the same time. Secure with ribbon.
Looking for more Pretties Kit ideas? I posted several in the last couple of weeks, but I wanted to add this project. I’ve been having so much fun with Pacific Point lately… I think I may have called it my favorite color a week or two back!
Here I’ve used the Pacific Point Textured Cardstock (on special in May!) for the base of my card.
A CARDSTOCK CUTTING TIP: Instead of making a ‘normal’ sized card, which is 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ closed, I tweak the size to make the most of my 12×12″ cardstock. So I cut my 12×12″ sheet into 3 pieces that are 4″ x 11″… that way I can get 3 cards out of a sheet, rather than just 2 if I cut ‘normal’ sized cards.
I also used the Good Morning Sunshine Designer Series Paper, both for the Big Shot Top Note frame around the edge, and the Scallop Edge punched strip across the middle. Yes, this is the same paper that I used for the little owl Jelly Bean Box.
For the technique… just press your Pretties Kit flower directly into a Craft Pad (Summer Sun used here). Then pour Clear Embossing Powder over the flower and heat with your Heat Tool. If things start to get smoky, don’t panic–it’s actually steam coming up from the silk flower.
Stamps: Upsy Daisy
Inks: Pacific Point Classic Pad, Summer Sun Craft Pad
Papers: Good Morning Sunshine Designer Series Paper, Kiwi Kiss and Pacific Point Textured Cardstock, Whisper White,
Accessories: Round Fire Rhinestone Brads, Boho Flower Punch, Big Shot, Top Note Die, Little Leaves Sizzlit, Scallop Edge Punch, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Pop-Up Glue Dots, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Pacific Point Striped Grosgrain Ribbon
This card is one that I demonstrated on the ‘Main Stage’ at our Spring Into Stamping demonstrator meeting 2 weeks ago. You can still join my group if you’re interested! The Demo Starter Kit is always a great deal, and with the $75 Special Kit in May, it’s too good to pass up!
After you check out the video, I thought you might like to see more shots of the project… I love these circle cards! My Stamp Club with Meg meets next week, and we’ll be making a similar card using the Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper.
