Welcome, Occasions Mini Blog Hoppers!

Welcome to my stop on the Stampin’ Addicts Occasions Mini Blog Hop!  You’ve probably just come from Rubber Stamping and Card Making and enjoyed Yapha’s fabulous creations using the set My Matryoshka.  (A big “thanks” to her for putting this hop together!)

The Chocolate Bunny stamp immediately called my name when I got the sneak peek of the Occasions Mini —  the Cute Quotient is very high with this image!  I had many ideas for this stamp, but only one of them for Easter!  To keep my stop fairly brief, I have not included recipes for the cards.  Stop back when the hop is over and I’ll re-post my projects with complete details.  Please click images to enlarge.

  1. And so, Easter in its sugary, egg-y, frilly glory!
  2. Actually, my first thought for about this stamp was not of chocolate, but of the beautiful vintage metal chocolate molds.  Getting that look took a bit of experimentation, but I liked this version best.  It is silver embossing powder on Basic Gray card stock.  It doesn’t photograph the best, but the effect IRL is charming.
  3. I love the look of individually cut words on cards and scrapbook pages.  This stamp from By Definition seemed ideal for a birthday card.  Also new from the Occasions Mini:  Pinking Hearts Border Punch, Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit Die, and 5/8″ Satin Ribbon (Certainly Celery).
  4. Finally, just a little something when you need to say, “Sorry I chewed your ___ out.”  Hopefully you won’t need to make this little 3″ x 3″ card too often!

I’m the last stop on the hop, but it’s really a big loop.  So if you’ve just started, jump over to Stellar Stamps to see what Stella’s designed using the set Garden From the Heart.

  5. Very cute! Love the butt-less bunny! 😉 And I love your textured Easter egg!

  6. I love the versatility you showed with this stamp! The faux metal is precious as well as the egg on the first one. The last card, however, is my favorite. I should make a bunch for a few people I know!

  7. Adore the sorry card. That is too cute!

  8. Sally Estes

    I got stuck at Rubber Rednecks. Anyone else?
    Thanks anyway Debra. I thought it was pretty smart of you to think of the tin mold instead of just the chocolate bunny!

  9. I had to laugh on the last card! Thanks for the nudge to place this one on my next order! I love the textured egg and ruched ribbon on the Easter card. Absolutely beautiful!

  10. LMBO at the last card…too funny!

  11. Great cards Debra! This little chocolate bunny was on my should I/shouldn’t I list and you managed to push it to the heck yeah I have to have this stamp because of your sorry card! I LOVE IT!
    Thanks for sharing!

  12. It’s amazing how real the chocolate bunny looks.

  13. They’re all adorable, but the first and last are my two favorites. Seeing the mold version, I couldn’t help but thinking how it would work trying the faux metal technique. I might have to try that! Nice work.

  14. Love all of your projects especially the silver metallic bunny.

  15. Oh my gosh! That sorry card is the best!!!! Too cute! My other favorite is the silver bunny too!

  16. Too cute!! I like that the silver one looks like the old-timey candy molds. But the last one made me LOL!

  17. Cute projects! I love that last card… too funny!

  18. Sheri

    I love the so sorry card…it’s the cutest!
    Smiles, Sheri

  19. Very cute projects. I especially like the metallic look of the middle project. I also like the “bite” you took out of the bunny.

  20. Cherie

    Just too darn cute! Love the one with the bite out of it! TFS!

  21. Kim

    So clever! Love the “tin” bunny. I collect old candy molds. This made me smile and then I laughed out loud at the last card! Great idea!

  22. Love your chocolate bunnies Debra! My very favorite is the textured egg background, definately CASE-worthy!!

  23. Debadoo

    I LOVE this stamp! Fell in love the moment I saw it, and I love what you did with it. Great idea for the candy mold. May have to try that with some of my carefully hoarded copper EP. I was waiting for a card with the ear chomped off, but your version is super cute. My fav is the first card. Gorgeous colors, love the ribbon treatment, everything about it. Every time I see this stamp I think of one of the bunnies we used to have. It was Easter and my son gave me a bite of his chocolate bunny (we were sitting on the couch in front of her cage), and of course I bit the ear, and said something like, I love biting the ears off the bunny. The real bunny reached up with her paw just then and pulled her ear down as if to protect it. Perfect timing!!

  24. Stamper Jill

    Love your chocolate bunny – especially the one with a bite taken out. lol Great job and very creative as usual!

  25. Your sugar egg card is just lovely–and what a neat idea with the metal mold! And that last card needs a SPEW! alert. . . .

  26. Cookie

    absolutely darling…. I really think this chocolate bunny will be as versitile as Dasher was…. loved all of them….

  27. Just too cute! Love the silver bunny and of course the last one made me spew my coffee!

  28. Suzette Kaufmann

    I have to agree with everyone, I love the bunny mold effect – I love, love, love it and plan to try it as soon as my stamp arrives. The sorry card it too cute and someone mentioned an ear being chomped off – will have to try that one too! Thank you for sharing.

  29. Sue

    I think your SORRY card is sooooo CUTE 🙂

  30. rhondag

    Wow! I love your first card, and your faux metal idea is SO fabulous!

  31. Kandi

    OMGosh- I thought the metal bunny was my fave until I saw the sorry card! Soooo funny – thanks for the laugh, and great cards.

  32. Sharon Steinwand

    Thought maybe I didn’t need this one-BUT… (I had a boss or 2 I could make a wack of these for- could be put to good use!!) Thanks for the laugh and the inspiration. I also love your use of textures!

    Sharon

  33. Too cute…love that little bunny 🙂

  34. Susan Carlson

    I love your “sorry” card LOL! I also enjoyed the metallic bunny. Thanks for sharing!

    Susan

  35. Super cute projects. I need to get my Bunny out and ink him up for some Sorry cards myself…thanks for a great idea!

  36. Patti

    This set wasn’t originally on my list but now it is. The “sugar egg” card almost gives me a tooth ache it’s so sweet. Making the chocolate mold was a great idea and looks very authentic. I LOVE the sorry card. Thanks for sharing these great ideas for this set.

  37. What a great set of cards Deb, but I’ll have to admit the last on is my favorite. Great way to think outside the box. I love it!

  38. OMGosh, that sorry card is a hoot! So clever. I love the first card too, with the argyle embossing and stitched ribbon. Great details!

  39. Great cards, I loved the last one made me laugh out loud! Great job!

  40. Jeanne Nielsen

    What a great bunch of projects! Love the bunny!! I’ll probably be making that last card for my hubby quite often!! Great idea!
