Hello and welcome, it’s Karen here again today. We’re having a little stretch of very cold weather here at the moment, so I decided to make a springlike card to warm me up! These little bunny friends were perfect for the occasion.
I stamped the adorable image from the “Bunny Friends” stamp set onto Neenah Solar Crest 80# cardstock, and coloured it in with Copic markers before fussy cutting it out. I masked off my card front with some contact paper that I had die cut a circle from. I ink blended this circle in yellow ( I used some Cosmic Shimmer Colour Cloud ink in Lemon Meringue, but any ink would work). I used a grey ink to stamp and clear heat emboss the sentiment, which is from the same stamp set.
Next, I die cut a variety of flowers from scraps of inked up cardstock I had in my “To Be Used One Day” box (that’s the box where all those bits and pieces go when you’re just not sure what to do with them!). I used the Spellbinders Petite Floral Potpourri die set for this, as the flowers are quite small and delicate. Once I had everything cut out, I started with the leaves to build a wreath, and glued them in place around my inked circle. Then I added in the little flowers around the wreath. I mounted the bunnies on foam tape and popped them up in the middle. Finally, I added a few pearls to the flower centres to give them that little sparkle. Those little bunnies just steal the show with their cuteness!
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you’re having a great day!
Copic markers used: E40, E41, E42, E43, E31 and R00

Hello everyone, it's Karen here today. I was totally inspired by Jennifer McGuire’s recent video on making simple pendulum cards. It was sheer genius and the minute I saw it, I thought about using her technique with Gerda Steiner's pigeons. If you haven’t seen Jennifer’s video, here’s a link to it - Cards with Simple Movement.
Now, I know this is not your typical wedding card, but it is a fun...
