You're so special

I fell so hard for this oh so adorable sweet Bunny Mom stamp by Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy Stamps.  So hard.  Crissy has captured the love and bliss in their little faces to perfection.

I coloured the sweet image with copic markers:
Mum bunny: W3, 1, 0, 00, R30, R00
Baby bunny: C3, 1, 0, 00, R30, R00
Grass: G29, 24, 21, 20, YG63

I used a cloud stencil and some tumbled glass ink to create the sky, and dotted in some pretendy flowers in the grass with a R24 copic marker

I used some papers that I have had in my stash for years, I love aqua and peach together.  I stamped the  Wire Background Stamp on to a piece of aqua card then heat embossed before die cutting a tag.  This is definitely my new favourite stamp, for sure.

I finished off with the prerequisite flowers and lace and the perfect sentiment from the Penguin Poop stamp set.

Sending Smles

I don't make many Easter cards at all, but couldn't help myself when I saw this cute little bunny in the Build-a-Basket Die Set.  

I wish I  had used a plain white background when I shot the photos though, the wood effect totally interferes with my spring theme lol.

I die cut a card shape from an egg die set, layered up with some paper that I've had for years then di cut three bunnies from gingham paper.

I finished off with a sentiment from the Painted Sayings stamp set trimmed into a banner for the bunnies to sit on.

Hello Gorgeous!

Guess who dug out the old watercolours and some Whimsy Stamps goodies and had a play?  It's been an absolute age since I had the time to fiddle about and try something very different, and I had a blast.  It's a lot easier than it looks and I'm really happy with how this card turned out.

I stamped the Wire Background Stamp onto watercolour card and heat embossed with some white Wow embossing powder.  I then taped down the paper onto a board and brushed on water, then splodged on red and black Gansai Tambi watercolours, lifting the colour if it looked too dark with a piece of paper towel.  I then got very brave and spattered red, black and white onto the background.  Go me!!  
I decided the wire background wasn't standing out enough so I created a drop shadow using a C3 copic marker.  What a difference that made.
I then used the Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles to cut out the panel. 

I stamped out and coloured the butterflies from the Butterflies Fluttering stamp set.  I used C5,7 and 9 for the black and RV 14, 13 and 10 for the hot pink.  I fussy cut these out and adhered them on to the card with some thin double sided foam squares.

A sentiment from my Everyday Banner Sentiments (digi) and a few flat-back gems and job done.

Angel Ariel

I was thrilled to bits when I saw  Whimsy Stamps had included Angel Ariel in the March release!  I think she's my favourite of all the stamps in the MF collection.  I added a sentiment from the sweet   Bunny Balloons 2 stamp set.

I switched up the copic skin colours this time, and I really like this combo.

Skin: E04, E11, E01, E000, E20
Hair: E40, 42, 44
Wings: BV20, C3, 0
Dress: R35, 32, 20, 000
Flowers/Sandals: R29, 24, 22
Halo: YR27, 24, Y11

The delish papers are by Anna Marie Designs, I had to get a pad (um okay so 2 pads) of every colourway because they are just so lovely

I added to Tim Holtz Distress Glitter to the flowers and finished off with a little heart charm.  Those tiny white flowers are made from coffee filters.  So cute!

Bunny Balloons

I love the Whimsy Stamps bunny stamps and these little cuties from the new Bunny Balloons 2 stamp set are just the sweetest!

I made the background by stamping out and heat embossing the new Messy Mesh background stamp with white embossing powder.  I then inked up the background with Tumbled Glass and Bundled Sage Distress Oxide Ink to give a sky and grassy background.  The green was a bit on the flat side so I flicked in some grass using a polychromo pencil.  Ah, much better!

I stamped out a sentiment from the Bunny Balloons set and die cut it out from a cloud die.

I coloured the bunnies with copic markers, fussy cut them out and popped them on the card with some 3D foam.  I gave the balloons a shine with some Nuvo glaze.

Copic colours used:
Bunnies: W3, 1, 0, 00, R30, R000
Clothes/Balloons: B02, B00, B0000; G24, 21, 20

I'll be back in a day or two with another card .... featuring the sweet Angel Ariel.
