Today's card is another project from this weekend's workshop. I always ask my hostesses if they have any requests. (I always hold my breath that they won't be crazy.) This weekend's hostess has hosted quite a few workshops for me over the years. And, generally, she always likes to include Easter-themed cards. She wanted to use the Easter Lamb that I shared yesterday and the "rabbit punch set". HUH?!?!?
I was pretty sure we didn't have a rabbit punch. But, I know this hostess is pretty "up" on all things Stampin' Up! So, I quickly pulled out my Occasions Catalog and flipped through it several times. I had NO CLUE what she was asking for - so I had to ask her. I'm sure she's thinking, "Duh, Kristin - the stamp set in the back of the Occasions Catalog with the bunny images that you punch out using the Festive Flower Builder Punch!" She was much kinder in her reply. But, I'd totally forgotten this set was in the catalog! I never turn back that far because I really don't like the Apple of My Eye Stamp Set on the opposite page. I was totally missing the absolutely adorable Friends & Flowers Stamp set! That bunny is just stinkin' adorable! Have you done the same? Although, I know some of you actually like my least favorite stamp set in the catalog - Apple of My Eye. Isn't it funny how that works? I'm gonna warn ya - you probably won't see many (if any) samples with that set on my blog. But, keep checking in - you never know when I might change my mind.
ANYWAY....back to today's card. If you looked in the catalog (page 46) and saw the Friends & Flowers Stamp Set, you might have guessed where my inspiration came from. However, the card in the catalog doesn't actually punch out the bunny. I looked at Pinterest at a few other samples. One person had folded down the bunny's ear and that was cute. I decided to subtly "curl" my bunny's ears using my bone folder to add dimension. It makes him really look like he's popping out of the circle.
I added some Pink Pirouette to his cheeks using a Q-Tip (a recurring theme for this workshop). And, I used a Blender Pen and Pink Pirouette reinker for his ears.
Did you notice the subtle strip of glitter along the bottom of the Mint Macaron tag? That's the new glitter tape that you can get FOR FREE during Sale-a-Bration when you place a $50 order! I LOVE THAT STUFF!!! You can even dye the clear glitter tape and make it any color you'd like! I'm gonna be stocking up on that for the next month and a half because it's AWESOME!
