Best Bunny

Ahhh…SPRING BREAK!  A chance for me to kick back and relax (yeah, right, sure) and just sit on the couch (okay…we’d have to go out and buy one first) and eat bon bons (whatever those are!).  But I got all of my grading done for my class that finished on Friday and I do have a bit of a breather so I thought I’d check out some of the challenges and play along!

Best Bunny was ‘sitting on top of my desk’ because Connie and I did a REALLY CUTE collection of 6 treat boxes (AWESOME – see below!) and since there were two AWESOME challenges out that that were perfect for this set (CASOLOGY – Cue Card – Bounce and The Paper Players – PP431 Spring Fever), I thought I’d play along!

You know me…I like those CLEAN AND SIMPLE cards and I just thought the little bunny would be so cute on this!

Here’s the details (don’t blink)…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 3 5/8 stamp greeting in Flirty Flamingo and bounce in Memento Black, layer onto Flirty Flamingo 3 3/4 x 3 3/4, add to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp little bunny 3 times color using the Smoky Slate and Flirty Flamingo blends, cut out and add to card front (the one using dimensionals)
  • Add some grey Best Route Enamel Shapes dots to finish off

Yep…that’s all there is!  CUTE!

Watercolor Backgrounds

And it’s Saturday again! This week we have a theme that I must admit…it made me GROAN when I saw it…watercolor backgrounds.  I am NOT good with messy!  Watercolor backgrounds are MESSY!!!  So…our electricity was out last Sunday night and I decided…maybe I’d do better with this if I did and it in dark.  Hmmm…I think I’m on to something.  I actually REALLY like how this turned out!

This is just a HAPPY card!

Here’s the details…

  • Mango Melody – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Watercolor paper – 3 7/8 x 5 1/8, using Mango Melody and Granny Apple Green reminkers, water and an AquaPainter to create the background, let it dry until you lights come back on (around 5 hours – LOL!!!)  Once dry, flick some Mango Melody ink to create a little splatter on it.  Let that dry then stamp butterflies using Memento Black, add to card front
  • Whisper White – ink stamp using Mango Melody and Granny Apple Green ink, stamp, cut out with Stitched Oval.
  • Add some Granny Apple Green Texture Weave Ribbon behind the oval, then add to card front using dimensionals
  • Add some Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dots to finish off

This would brighten anyone’s day!
