More Ms. Bunny Cards

More Ms. Bunny Cards

Here is a couple more bunny cards that I made. I had two bunnies already colored and I like the way my Scramble bunny card looked so here’s a few more. I was inspired by Hero Arts Scramble 151 that was hosted by Cindy to make my first bunny card. I really like the way the orange dress turned out on my Scramble card so that is why you see another orange dress here. You will notice each is a bit different. I get bored making many cards exactly the same. I like to make my life more complicated instead of easier sometimes.

Background Paper – Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid – Rainbow. I love their plaid paper pads. I have two different ones.

  • The long stem flowers on the purple plaid card are from a Hero Arts set I found at a thrift store. I don’t have the name but they are from 2004. All of the flowers are colored with Copics. I added Clear Wink of Stella over the flowers.
  • The group of flowers on the other two cards is by Kolette Hall called Flower Garden.
  • The grass is a stamp from Avocado Arts. I stamped it several times and then ink blended over it.
  • The bunny is a La-La Land Crafts – I colored some of the bunnies with colored pencils and the others with Copics. There is a little bit of Nuvo glitter drops on the third card.
  • The sentiment on the first and second card is from a Hero Arts set Celebrate Everyday (CL498).
  • The sentiment on the third card is a stamp from Peddler’s Pack Stampworks.

 

Chocolate Easter Bunny

Chocolate Easter Bunny

I saw an Easter wreath somewhere on a card and decided that would be fun to come up with that type of thing.

The purple border… That was a long process. It seems simple enough but it was not. I was trying different punches and papers to find a look I liked. I even broke a border punch by trying to use it on paper that was to thick. Darn it. Finally I ended up with this one which is a Martha Stewart border punch.

The background is watercolors. I was thinking I used green and yellow but in the photo it looks green. Anyway some watercoloring.

The wreaths are from Hero Arts September 2016 My Monthly Hero kit. This is a really great kit. I was lucky to get one. One bummer at the moment is I do not know where the stamps are from the kit except 4 leaves. One wreath I die cut from brown paper and the other was off white and I inked over that with green ink.

The bunny and eggs are from a set called Easter Basket from Two Paper Divas. I colored them with Copics. It’s kind of funny I am noticing I use my Copics a lot. When I first took a class on how to use them I didn’t really like them. Now I have a bunch.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts set Celebrate Everyday (CL498) and stamped with purple ink from Hero Arts.

Gray Sympathy Flowers

Gray Sympathy Flowers

I created this some time ago without the sentiment. I created the watercolor background and then stamped the flowers in a gray color of ink I think it was. The flowers are stamped using Hero Arts stamp set Wildflower Garden (CG170). The sentiment is from Hero Arts set With Sympathy (CL476) stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.

Unfortunately my dentist passed away unexpected and kind of suddenly. So sad for his family, his office staff and me. I went to him over 25 years and mostly went twice a year.  He was very kind and sometimes let you decide how much things were bugging you and not always doing a procedure. He also would answer my curious questions related to teeth. This was for the people that worked in his office.

Easter Peeps

Easter Peeps

For Easter this year my husband asked me not to get any candy for him. He likes peeps so this is my sugar free Easter card for him. It actually doesn’t have a back so it is kind of a panel I guess.

I created the background awhile back with Distress Oxide inks (cracked pistachio and spiced marmalade) using a plaid stencil by Echo Park. The oval is cut out with a Spellbinders die and inked with Spice Marmalade Oxide ink too. The Easter basket and peeps are from a stamp set by Two Paper Divas called Easter Basket. They were colored with Copics. The sentiment is from Hero Arts set Celebrate Everyday (CL498) and stamped with Archival ink in Sepia.

Merry Monday Snowman

Merry Monday Challenge #242

I am happy to say I got another one submitted over at Merry Monday. I often think about it all week then wait until the last minute to finish creating it and submit it.

Merry Monday Snowman

The snowman is a Stampendous stamp called Country Snowman (M318). I colored this cute snowman with Copics. I added some glitter under the snowman and on his cuffs. For the background I stamped some snowflakes and used sparkly embossing powder and heat embossed them.

Hero Arts Scramble 151

Cindy hosted the Hero Arts Scramble today. Her theme was use an oval.

Hero Arts Scramble 151

I wanted to make an Easter card and I liked her large ovals that were part of her cards. I don’t use this oval die very much so it was an opportunity to use it.

Background Paper – Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid – Rainbow. I love their plaid paper pads. I have two different ones.

  • Tulips – Hero Arts Tulips (F895). I think these are from a thrift store also.
  • The other two flowers are from a Hero Arts set I found at a thrift store. I don’t have the name but they are from 2004. All of the flowers are colored with Copics except the purple one which is colored with a Violet Wink of Stella pen. I added Clear Wink of Stella over the yellow flower.
  • The grass is a stamp from Avocado Arts. I stamped it several times and then ink blended over it.
  • The bunny is a La-La Land Crafts – I colored the bunny with Copics. It is hard to see but there is Wink of Stella on the bottom part of the dress.
  • The sentiment is from Hero Arts set Celebrate Everyday (CL498)

 

Merry Monday #240 Bells

Merry Monday #240

Finally I got one in for the Merry Monday Challenge #240 with the theme of bells. I just got this stamp at Stamp & Scrapbook Expo a couple of weeks ago so I enjoyed being able to use it.

Background – Darice embossing folder Sheet Music.

The mats & image die cut – Spellbinder die Label One (S4-161).

The sentiment – Finding It Trading die. I cut it out of watercolor paper and colored it with a silver Wink of Stella pen. It doesn’t quite look like the bells which are also colored with Wink of Stella so I am thinking it was a different watercolor paper.

The image – Elizabeth Craft Designs Cardinal (RS021). Colored with Zig Clean Color pens and the silver Wink of Stella pen.

My Sister’s Birthday Cow

My Sister's Birthday Card

This was a fun one to make! I have had this cow stamp for many years and don’t use it much but I love the image. My sister loves cows so this works great for her birthday.

Background – Lawn Fawn plaid paper from the Fall Perfectly Plaid paper pad. Love their plaids.

Die Cut panels – Spellbinders Labels Nine. These are raised up with foam tape.

The Cow – Banjo Maya by La-La Land Crafts. Colored with Copics.

The sentiment – Spellbinders die (S2-139)

Lotus Stencil & Oxide Distress Inks

Lotus Birthday

For the background on this I used some of the new Oxide Distress Inks. Love them. This is Broken China, Spiced Marmalade and Cracked Pistachio applied with the round blending tool.

Then I laid the Hero Arts Large Lotus stencil over the background and sprayed with Perfect Pearls.

The sentiment is a die from Simon Says Stamp (SSSD111559) and it is hard to see but it is sprayed with Mint Perfect Pearls.

And.. some random bling.

Peony Birthday

I stamped these flowers from the Altenew Peony Bouquet set. I just love this set and have made several cards with it. Since I stamped the flowers quite some time ago I don’t remember the inks that I used. The sentiment which is rather crooked is a Simon Says Stamp die called Happy Birthday strangely enough and is cut out of the same brown that is the background for the panel. I guess I was in a hurry when I laid down the sentiment.
