Spring Bloomers and a Bunny by Jean Okimoto

Stenciled blossoms and a popular new bunny from Poppystamps are great for all-occasion cards.  The bold flowers and sweet poufy bunny are more than ready for spring...are you?  

Hi, Jean here finally after many hours of home security, modem and electrical issues.  Imagine loud warning chirps at exactly 25 minutes past the hour, every hour, 24/7!

Stenciling is quick, precise and forgiving when necessary.  Stenciling on the reverse side of a stamped image is even better.  Here's another design featuring Spring 2024's Cheerful Floral Clear Stamps and Cheerful Floral 6x6 Art Stencils.

Prep white vellum with the embossing powder tool to eliminate stray flecks of powder.  Stamp the floral image with VersaMark.  Heat-emboss it with detail white powder.  Flip both the stencils and the stamped, cooled image over to the backside and stencil the reverse side with Brilliance Inks - Pearlescent Lime, Lavender, Purple and Sunflower Yellow.  The stencils are numbered for sequential coloring and can create the look of layered colors. Cut it with the die included in the stamp set.

Reverse-stenciling keeps the white embossing clean + white and eliminates scratched, scraped embossing. 

Cut two pieces of white cardstock with the second-largest Nested Globes die.  Layer them for dimension, then attach the floral diecut with narrow strips of doublestick tape - it won't be visible under the opaque inks.

Sweet, poufy Poppystamps Cuddle Bunny will make you smile!   Cut him from the horizontal textured side of Open Studio Watercolor Paper.  The light horizontal lines add more character to this already-sweet bunny.  Color the ears and the nose area of the solid head piece with pink ink - Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid was used here. Color the eye areas with a black marker.  Attach it behind the other head diecut.  Assemble the bunny.

Attach a 1-½" x 4-½" piece of ScorTape to white cardstock. Cut it with the Thank You Daily Script background die.  Cut the detailed top layer of the greeting from a pale blue/lavender Ocean Blue Collection 6x6.  Before removing the diecut - carefully remove and save the  teardrop shapes for the "a" and "y" and the open oval for the "o."  Attach the top layer - and the tiny saved pieces.  Use the tape liner like a presscloth to press all of the pieces firmly onto the adhesive-covered background.  Cover the exposed adhesive with Imagine's Iridescent Embossing Powder, tap the excess off and heat-emboss.  Attach it inside the card.

Thanks for visiting our blog...Happy Easter to everyone celebrating on Sunday.  See you in April!

Copic markers used:
pinks - RV10/21/23 
yellows - Y15, V01 
whites/shading - T0/1/2/3 
 
DI used:

IMG_5120

The second largest circle die in the Circle Basics set was used to die cut from white cardstock.  Ink blended the grass/sky on it, then glued the elements onto it.  Trimmed off the overhangs before matting it to an Anemone Plaid pattern paper circle.  Mounted the circle to a white circle card base to finish.

Re-posting and hoping the pictures aren't compressed and distorted this time...

Here's another new design from our Spring Cheer Collection...it's the happy Hippity Hoppity Bunny and his basket of eggs.  Hi, Jean here with another Easter idea today.

MemoryBoxHappySpringDebutScript, MemoryBoxHippityHoppityBunny, MemoryBoxCo, MemoryBoxDies, Diecutting, HandmadeCards, DiecutCards, FeltDiecuts, BunnyCards, SpringCards, JeanOkimoto, A2Cards, ImpressCardsAndCrafts

Highlight the texture of Cream Woodgrain Paper (cardstock) with Vintage Sepia VersaFine using the direct-to-paper process.  Cut the basket.

Color white cardstock for thge eggs - scribble marker inks to cut 6 eggs of each color.  Blue, Violet, Blue Green and Fuchsia Zebra Mildliners were used here.  Diecut the eggs and attach the behind the basket.

Diecut Wild Grass Border from 2 shades of green in the new Greenery 6x6 Collection.  Trim the sides with the bottom of the 3" wide Nested Globes die.  Layer the darker border behind the lighter border.

Cut a lavender/blue 6x6 from the Magonolia Plaid set with the 3-½" wide Nested Globes die.  Cut a pale lavender 6x6 from the Twilight Purple Collection with the 3" wide die.

Hippity Hoppity Bunny Happy Easter
by Anne Thompson

Here's another cute bunny from the 2024 February Spring Cheer Collection--Hippity Hoppity Bunny.

IMG_2902 (1)

to make this card

  • Die cut the HIPPITY HOPPITY BUNNY 94728 from watercolor paper.
  • Color the bunny overlay pieces --I used a fingertip dauber and Hero Arts Wet Cement Ink.
  • Add the white head piece to the background bunny and then adhere the colored overlay pieces--I used a glue pen.
  • Color the tiny basket and eggs--Again I used fingertip daubers  and Ranger Distress Rusty Hinge for the basket, and Hero Arts Inks in Raspberry Jam, Fresh Peach and Butter Bar for the eggs.
  • Add the eggs by attaching them to the back of the basket and each other.

IMG_2895 (1)

  • Choose one of the plaid papers from ANEMONE PLAID PP1025, trim it to 4 X 5 1/4, and add it to the front of an A2 note card--I used a top-fold card.
  • Select a coordinating green from the GREENERY SOLID CORE CARDSTOCK PACK SP1011, trim it to  2 X 3 1/4, and add it to the note card in the upper left corner.

IMG_2892 (1)

  • Glue the bunny to the green panel.
  • Add the basket of eggs using a piece of dimensional foam behind the basket and a dot of glue on the handle to secure it to the bunny's hand.

IMG_2896 (1)

IMG_2900 (1)

  • Stack the letters and then adhere them at an angle at the bottom of the note card.
  • Bunnies have pink eyes so I used a colored pencil to color his eyes, but I'm going to keep looking for the right tiny gem instead.

IMG_2901 (1)

Once I get this guy's eyes fixed, he'll go into the stack of Easter cards I'll have ready to mail out in early March.

Hop on over to the Idea Book and Catalog here for more Spring Cheer inspiration.  And keep checking the blog every day for even more from the Design Team.

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with a fun critter Easter card made with the new Hippity Hoppity Bunny die 94728 and the Layered Lamb die 94730.  I also used the Happy Easter Dover Script Happy Easter 94729.  Here's a close up look:

I cut a piece of Spring Plaid paper PP1012 and inked the edges with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink first.  Then I cut the critter pieces and sentiment from white card stock and then colored some of the parts and the sentiment with alcohol markers.

I popped the purple plaid panel on foam tape for dimension and then added fairy jewels to the card front.  Here's one last look:
