More CDS Sneak Peeks! :)

Welcome back to the second half of Clear Dollar Stamp's February Sneak Peeks!
I have 3 more projects to share with you today.
The first card is done with the "Flower Bunny" Feb. SOTM set that I illustrated for Clear Dollar Stamps. It is available starting tomorrow and it's free with a $50.00 purchase!

There will be a Flower Bunny" SVG file available for download tomorrow, but I actually made this sample before the SVG was done so I had to do tons of hand cutting to pop the bunny up so much! 
The SVG will cut on the Cricut in about 15 seconds where it took me about a half hour! 
Really cool new product feature from CDS!
The shape behind the bunny was cut with Clear Dollar Stamp's "Designer Labels Die" set.

That drop dead gorgeous ribbon is Really Reasonable Ribbon's - Hydrangea Hand-dyed Silk.
The Roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The pretty cardstock is: Juniper Berry, Amethyst, and Heavenly White from The Paper Temptress.

The next card was done using a sweet set illustrated by Lauri Wilson called "You're Eggs-traordinary".
I chose to make it a sugared egg by adding some clear Martha Stewart - Crystal Fine Glitter to the entire egg.

The designer paper is from "The Best of K&Company" stack.
The cardstock is Azalea and Spring Larch from The Paper Temptress.
The Gradient Gem Stickers and Gradient Pearl Stickers are from Creative Charms.
The yellow rose is from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The beautiful ribbon is Really Reasonable Ribbon's ~ White Satin.

My final peek is this bookmark that I created with the beautiful new "Scriptures of Hope" set illustrated by Lori McCroskey.

Thanks so much for dropping by!
I would love to hear which of today's peeks is your favorite!

Oh, Trudy! Your samples are beautiful. I gotta say, though, that the bunny is my total fav! He's precious!!!!

Beautiful cards. You've got way too much talent to illustrate the image, color it up, and put it on a beautiful card. I love all of the dimension on your bunny card. Your second card reminds me of a Faberge egg...just beautiful! And I love the papers & tassel on your bookmark. Wonderful!
