Best Bunny

SURPRISE!  It’s Wednesday and I can’t believe I’m posting in the middle of the week – SPRING BREAK!  Although I have to admit with the temperatures hovering in the teens it does not FEEL like SPRING!

But…speaking of spring, when I saw the Freshly Made SketchFreshly Made Sketch for this week, I just had to play along!

You know that I’ve been playing with the ADORABLE Best Bunny set after doing a cool 6 treat box collection with ConnieADORABLE Best Bunny set after doing a cool 6 treat box collection with Connie, and I have to say…those bunnies were just made for this sketch!

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!

Jar of Love

Hi everyone!  SURPRISE…it’s a Sunday post!  I had some extra time today and say the CASology Challenge 292 for Foil…oh my word…I HAD to join the fun!  The SAB Springtime Foil papers couldn’t be more perfect for this!

Isn’t this just GORGEOUS?  It’s hard to see the shiny foil in this so here is a close-up one…

 

The outline for the flower and leaves are a rosy foil so I used the Champagne foil for my strip since it also has  pink undertone in there.

Here’s the details…

  • Pink Pirouette – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Pink Pirouette – 4 3/4 x 3 1/2
  • Springtime Foil dsp (SAB) – color the flower with the Pink Pirouette Blends and the leaves with Old Olive Blends, cut everything out and layer leaves behind flower (NOTE:  because of the paper you can’t make a lot with the exact same flower/leave combination but you can easily substitute the different ones)
  • Champagne Foil – 1/2 x 3 3/4, add to panel, add flower/leaves then stamp greeting using Old Olive, add panel to card front using dimensionals

Yep it really is super easy AND oh so elegant!

Set(s): Jar of Love
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Springtime Foil dsp, Champagne Foil
Ink: Old Olive, BLENDS:  Pink Pirouette, Old Olive
