I LOVE MY STAMPIN' UP! PEEPS!! Easter Punch Art Tutorial

Hey Stamping Peeps!!!

Does your family like Peeps? We do!! I prefer the bunnies. And my first choice is the yellow ones. But truth be told... I would eat any shape or any color. :) Yesterday at WalMart I could only reach the yellow chicks. So I bought them.

I've seen the cutest little Easter bunny punch art on the net and wanted to re-create him make him look like a sugary Peep. Here is what I came up with:

Stamps: Indescribable Gift (sentiment)
Paper: Pretty In Pink, Soft Sky, Daffodil Delight, Perfect Plum, Pistachio Pudding, Best Year Ever DSP (SAB), Whisper White
Accessories: Oval Framelits, Decorative Dots EF, Small Oval Puch, 3/4" Circle Punch, Bow Builder Punch, Modern Label Punch, Fringe Scissors, Wisteria Chevron Ribbon, Pearl Jewels, Dazzling Diamonds gitter, Heat and Stick EP, Versamark Ink, Purple glitter (retired), Itty Bitty Flower Punch (retired)

Isn't it the cutest thing ever?!!! I just love how it turned out! For once, something that I pictured in my little pea-brain turned out like I had hoped.

Here are the punches I used and the punched out pieces.

Other supplies you will need are:
Heat Tool
Versamark Ink
Heat and Stick Embossing Powder
Dazzling Diamonds Glitter

First, glue your little bunny Peep together.

After he dries, squish his front side into Versamark ink. Make sure his whole body is inked up. 

Before the ink dries, cover it completely with Heat and Stick embossing powder.

Because you can not hold the bunny (since it's completely covered in EP), you should heat it in something that can withstand high temperatures. I used a metal pan from the dollar store. Melt the EP completely so it looks shiny. Not dull like this little guy. The Heat and Stick EP works kind of like hot glue.

Before it cools, cover your bunny liberally with Dazzling Diamonds (On the purple Peep, I used purple glitter, not Dazzling Diamonds.) Let it cool completely before removing any excess glitter.

Here are two bunnies punched out from Perfect Plum cardstock. One is covered in Dazzling Diamonds and the other is covered in a purple glitter that Stampin' Up! sold a few years back. 

The Dazzling Diamonds glitter is very iridescent so it turned by plum bunny kind of blue. That's why I chose to cover my second plum bunny in purple glitter. And now I {heart} this glitter and I wished Stampin' Up! still sold it!! I want to cover everything in glitter!!

For those of you out there who do not care for Peeps:

Even if you don't like Peeps, that's okay!

I had so much fun making this card!! Now I need to think up another reason to go glitter something.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Saturday before Easter!
