Snuggle Bunnies

I can hear the sighing just looking at these Smooching Bunnies from KTDesigns. (I previously posted that I purchased this stamp from an Art Impressions Booth, but I was incorrect. KTDesigns is also known as Artful Stamper and I confused the two companies. My apologies.) How I made this card: This image -- which is two bunnies together on one stamp -- just cries out to be watercolored. However, vast amounts of white space are almost always a disaster for me -- until I take that watercolor class that is in my future. I decided to use patterned paper as a way to fill in the space inside these bunnies. I stamped them twice in Palette Noir ink onto 2 different pieces of Stampin Up's Sarah paper and cut out each bunny. (Then I did it again because the ink smudged when I was cutting out the bunnies. Patience.) I mounted the bunnies with Stampin Up's dimensionals onto a bunny I had already stamped onto Bashful Blue cardstock, added some cotton ball tails (adhered with Ranger's Glossy Accents), and placed a tiny blue A Muse Arts mini twinkle dot between the bunnies' noses just for fun. Other supplies: All Stampin Up: Certainly Celery and So Saffron cardstock; striped paper from the Sarah set of decorator papers; Celery ribbon and So Saffron brads. Everything mounted on a non SU white cardstock. Happy Easter and to those who celebrate Passover, I hope your Passover has been a good one.

  6. Joan, very cute and great inspiration. I've been reading the tutorials of using patterned paper with stamps (such as dressing the bellas), but your bunnies gave me the idea to go see what my teddy bear stamp would look like with patterned paper. I, too, need more watercoloring classes to make him look right!

  27. Your bunny card is awesome! I saw it last night but had to go to bed before I could leave a comment. Joan, I love how you stamped your bunnies on different papers.They look wonderful. I also like how you combined several different patterned papers together to make this card. Today when I went to my local stamp store I saw this bunny stamp and I thought of you and I smiled. :) Thanks for sharing this card.
