Happy Easter Bunny in the grass!

I created this card last year but it is so cute, I wanted to post it again.  The cute little bunny goes together so easily with three of our punches.

Brightblossomsbunny

I thought his little bunny behind would look so cute sitting in the grass so I took a 1" strip of Certainly Celery and used my Paper Snips to snip down about halfway and repeated this all the way across moving the scissors ever so slightly with each cut.  I went back and cut some of the blades on the diagonal.

I added a little circle of Pretty in Pink card stock with the small circle punch in the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and then adhered the coordinating Bitty Button over it to create his tail.

The bunny is made using three of our punches:
3/4 Circle (head) 119873     
Small Oval (body) 120908 
Blossom Petals Builder (ears) 121808 

I stamped the leaves and daffodils using the Bright Blossoms set (order it in Clear #125497 or Wood #125495).  The Daffodil Delight Seam Binding adds just the right touch.  The greeting is from the Delightful Dozen amp set (order is in Clear #122652 or Wood #122650) found on page 167 of the catalog

Technique Geeks - Soot Stamping & Pop 'n Cuts

When I saw the Feeling Sentimental set in the Sale-a-bration Brochure, I knew it would be perfect for soot stamping.  I don't do it alot but Soot Stamping is really cool!!  Wew learned this technique at my February Technique Geeks Class, my March Class is this Saturday, the 9th in Sheridan, Wyoming.  If you are in the area and would like to join us, let me know.

The Feeling Sentimental set is a collection of nostalgic images that are really easy to work with.  They are perfect for motion staming and can certainly be used alone with no coloring.  You can get this set FREE with a $50 order placed in my Online Store at www.shoppingwithbarb.com

Feelingsentimentalsootgroup

Each time you do the technique, you get a different result.

Basic instructions: Cut a piece of Glossy White card stock and wave it glossy side down slowly through the flame of a candle.  when the piece is covered with the soot, you take a clean rubber stamp and press it into the soot.  Carefully remove it and spray the card stock with a Clear Matte Sealer.  Attach it to your project.

Feelingsentimentalsootclose

BARB'S TIP: Hold the card stock by the edges as it is easy to smudge or get fingerprints in the soot.

Feelingsentimentalsootpopncuts

This card also uses the Pop 'n Cuts Card Base.  You can see more cards using the Pop 'n Cuts Card Base HERE and HERE.

Our card base is Early Espresso and we added the Tangerine Tango card stock layer and the Tangerine Tango striped DSP from the Sycamore Street DSP (get it FREE with a $50 order) pack before running it through the die.  These Steel Ruled dies can easily cut through mulitple layers of paper.

CollagecuriossootcloseThe Soda Pop Top was flattened with the Big Shot Machine and then we added a few images from the Collage Curios stamp set (order it in Clear #129102 or Wood #129099).  The words were stamped in Tangerine Tango and the Eiffel Tower was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with the Early Espresso Embossing Powder.

Stampin' Up! CLEAR stamps!

We've searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping. And we've found it. We're excited to announce that we now have wood-mount, clear-mount AND photopolymer stamps!  Our top-quality photopolymer has just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and with the introduction of our firm-foam pads, let's just say they're meant for each other! Photopolymer stamps will also be unique, fun designs that will inspire you and provide more versatile options you may not see in our traditional wood- and clear-mount stamp options.
