Larissa - Hoppiness

March 11, 2017


Hi everyone, I am Larissa from Car-d-elcious. Today I am posting a card because I was asked to be a guest designer at Gerda Steiner designs. Gerda draws very lovely stamps, so I was really happy that they asked me to be a guest designer this (and next) week.


The cute stampset Hoppiness from Gerda Steiner designs was send to me to make my cards. It is a really fabulous set with all kinds of lovely bunnies. I immediately knew that I wanted to make a card with a couple of cut out circles. I stamped 3 different bunnies from the set and then I coloured them all with my Polychromos pencils and the black glaze pen and then I fussy cut them all. I have cut 3 circles out of a piece of white cardstock with the Crea-nest-lies XXL 33 from Crealies. With a black pen I added faux stitching on the white cardstock. On a white card I adhered purple gingham paper from the Tiny check paperpad from My favorite things and then I adhered the white cardstock with the circles with foamtape on the card. I adhered the bunnies with foamtape inside the circles. I decorated the card with Sparkling clear sequins 4 mm from Pretty pink posh.

Today I am also posting a second card made with the stamp set Hoppiness from Gerda Steiner designs. It is a really lovely stamp set with all kinds of cute bunnies. The bunny that I used on my card is my favorite, it is such a cutie.



I stamped the little bunny 14 times for this card. I coloured the bunnies with my Polychromos pencils, the black glaze pen and the white gelpen and then I fussy cut all the images. With the Crea-nest-lies XXL 49 and 50 from Crealies I first cut a square from white cardstock and then I cut a circle out of it. On a white card I adhered a piece of pink gingham paper from the Tiny check brights paperpad from My favorite things and then I adhered the white square with foamtape on the card. Inside the circle I stamped a sentiment from the set and then I adhered all the bunnies with foamtape inside the circle. I decorated the card with Sparkling clear sequins 4 mm from Pretty pink posh.


I had 2 bunnies left over and those I adhered on the inside of the card on a strip of pink gingham design paper. I stamped the sentiment another time on the design paper.

Wishing You a Very Happy Easter

Happy Friday! It's finally Spring!! Easter will be here soon and I just love this bunny from the new Easter Bunnies stamp set.

First, I created a background for the bunny by die-cutting a large egg and inking a few clouds and grass with Distress Inks.

For a little extra interest, I adhered the egg to a piece of white cardstock slightly overlapping the edge and then die-cut using a stitched rectangle...
