You’re My Hunny Bunny

Sunday, March 30th, 2014

Here’s a cute Easter bunny card tutorial I made recently using stamps from Close to My Heart (large egg), Hero Arts (polka dot) and Some Odd Girl (all others).

hunny bunny card

-Cut in half a pink piece of 8 1/2″x11″ cardstock and fold for card base
-Cut a yellow polka-dot pattern paper to 5 1/2″x 1 3/4″ and cut tan cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 1 1/2″, adhere together and tie around with pink plaid ribbon, then adhere to card front

-On white cardstock stamp bunny, color with grey and pink markers (I used Spectrum Noir), apply snow pen or puffy white paint pen and heat with heat gun, cut out bunny

sogbunny6

-Ink the large solid egg stamp with yellow ink and then press onto an un-inked large polka dot background stamp, this is called a kissing technique and it will transfer the background image onto the solid stamp.

-Stamp egg onto 2 1/2″x 2 1/2″ white cardstock, stamp grass in green at the bottom, adhere to a 2 3/4″x 2 3/4″ piece of tan cardstock and adhere to card front

Easter Border Card

The current challenge at the Lawnscaping Challenge blog is dusting off supplies you haven’t used in awhile. For my card I got out some yellow flocking powder which I haven’t used in ages and also some decorative edged scissors, which I also just don’t pick up as much any more, even though I probably have 8-10 pairs. I used stamps from the Lawn Fawn “Happy Easter” set, adding flocking to the little chicks, now they’re yellow and fuzzy! :)

To make this card:

cut a piece of green cardstock in half and fold for the card base

trim a floral pattern paper to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and  adhere to card front

trim white cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 1″, line up flowers, eggs and chicks stamps on one long clear block and stamp twice with black ink

color all images exept chicks with markers

using a glue pen add glue to chicks and cover with yellow flocking powder, lightly press down and then tap off excess, let dry

cut blue cardstock to 5 1/2″ and cut one long edge with decorative scalloped scissors, punch small holes in each scallop

adhere stamped piece to blue piece and adhere to card front

Aren’t these black kitties adorable?! They look like they are such good helpers for their witches and wizards!

Black Cat ACEO set

I made these two ACEO/ Artist Trading cards (3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″)using stamps from C.C. Designs. I stamped each kitty onto white cardstock with Memento Black ink and use Spectrum Noir markers to color them. It’s so easy to add shadowing, shading and depth with these markers! I love them! I’m not sure if you can tell but I also added touches of glitter using a Stardust Gell Roll, to the potion bottles and the hat band. I then cut each image out and mounted them using foam tape onto an orange harlequin pattern paper. Onto the pattern papers I stamped some fun text and a spider web or stars. Then mounted the pattern paper onto cardstock. I think they turned out so cute! These cards are currently available in my Etsy shop.

Got out the Silhouette machine today and made a new vinyl sticker for my car, it goes nicely with the Harry riding his broom one I made a while back. It’s hard to tell in the photo but I used silver glitter vinyl, it looks so cool!

I haven’t had much time to participate in any changes lately but I finally had some free time this week to make a card for the latest Lawnscaping challenge. It’s inspired from the photo, I used red rhinestones for the apples, all stamps are Lawn Fawn, pattern papers are from CTMH and My Mind’s Eye.

I adore the Pure Innocence stamp line from My Favorite Things, it’s one of my faves, I’d love to own them all :)

Here’s a card I made for the MFT weekly sketch challenge. I took the little girl holding the pumpkin and drew a jack o’ lantern face on the pumpkin and added a witches hat to her to take it from being a more fall image to Halloween. The sentiment stamp is from the Pure Innocence Fairy stamp set. The papers are from Cosmo Cricket.
