Today Stamps and Smiles is previewing the upcoming release of the Sleepy Bunny stamp set. Again, another cute set with lots of design possibilities.

This is the last of four sketches for Stamps and Smiles Challenge. You have until Friday February 27 at 7:00 pm Central time to upload your cards to SCS using the keyword SASSC4.

One random entry from each of the daily challenges will win the stamp set releasing that day. One random entry who completes all 4 challenges will win the entire release - a $75 value. Please have your card uploaded to SCS by Friday February 27 at 7pm. The winners will be announced on Monday, March 2 on the Stamps and Smiles blog.

Remember please include SASSC4 in the keywords on SCS.

Here is my card for todays challenge. I stamped him on Cryogen white paper with Memento black ink.
Copics used:
Bunny - E41, E42
Nose and ears - R20
Blanket - B91, B93
Carrots - YR12, G24
Shirt - YG41
Pillow - B91
Basket - E33, E35

I used a lot of markers on the eggs, too many to mention. Lastly, I used C1 to add a shadow below him and then B000 for the background which I diluted with the blender pen. I also used Souffle and Glaze pens on the eggs for some added texture. I created the background paper by repeatedly stamping the carrots stamp. I then used an orange Souffle pen and G24 Copic to color them. I just love this sleepy bunny and there are so many possibilites of what you can put into the dream bubble. Finished size is 5 x 7 inches.

I had so much fun making my Easter Basket with the Mama Bunny set that I decided to make another.
For this one, I used my Spellbinder's Mega Nestabilities Curved Rectangles die set. Rather than a handle I chose to add ribbon loops on the ends, again secured by brads but I added circles to hide the ends. I think this would make a great basket for a little boy. The finished size of this basket is 6" wide, 4" high and 2 3/4" deep.
