A Cute Card with Masking!

 Happy Sunday!
 I do not normally make cutesy kind of cards...but the darling images from this Penny Black set had me intrigued. 

 After stamping a few on paper, I found that the outlines are so fine and detailed. They are quite fun and whimsical. I chose the little bunny with the presents and got right to work. I decided that it would be cool to have the bunnies sitting on a few boxes of presents. This is the result.

Merry Christmas
I colored the images with Distress Inks and Peerless watercolor. The stripe at the bottom was done with this stamp from Textures. I also altered the sentiment from Wonderful and Jolly. I added some silver strings and sequins for the extra touches!

I am only touching the "surface" since I only used one of the 10 stamps. 
There is SO much potential with this stamp set! I am sure I can make 10 cards or more if I am at it!

One last thing that I want to share is that StampNation  is releasing a new class! I am thrilled to be part of the class.
