Easter Bunny S1702 CTMH Australasian Blog Hop

Welcome to our Australasian Blog Hop. We have all been creating with the "Easter Bunny—February Stamp of the MonthStamp set. If you have arrived here from Wendy Hopper ...Expressions of the heart then you are in the right place. If you landed here another way, please join in by following the link at the end of this post. Follow the links, check out all the amazing ideas and eventually you'll come right back here to where you started. 

Today I would like to share with you my project which features the Easter Bunny—February Stamp of the Month available exclusively throughout February 2017 for $27 or for just $7.50 when you spend $75. 

This is the CUTEST little stamps set so I KNOW all the 10 consultants in this blog hop will have an amazing selection of ideas for us. Make sure you check everyone out and come right back to here. 

I started by stamping the littlest bunny with Black Memento™ Ink 
The one on the right is straight black and the one on the left is second generation inked for that lighter grey colour. I like using Memento because you can colour with markers or use watercolour paints without the black ink running. 

The first two cards in my series are slight modifications from instructions consultants were given at our Sneak Peak events last year. Contact your consultant if you'd like the instructions. The are very simple. 

1 patterned piece 5.5 x 4.25 inches
1 piece 1.5 inches wide to place on the bottom (I split mine into 2 x 0.75 inch parts and on the second card I used the zip strips which are 0.5 inches wide)
2.5 x 4.25 inches of White Daisy Cardstock

I drew around the Somebunny Wishes You banner with Marvy® Uchida® LePen™ Journaling PenThen coloured in flowers and bunny with my ShinHan Markers. ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Pastel Green Marker to match the green in the paper as closely as I could. Don't look at my colouring in too closely - It was late the night I made these so I could probably do a lot better with more sleep :)

I had lots of scraps from a card I'd made with zip strips and half inch strips like a patchwork quilt (see other blog post on Hello Lovely). So the next card I made was the card below with the half inch strips on a white small section of card (the bit under the bunny). 

With the scraps I had from the Workshops Your Way® Hello Lovely Scrapbooking Kit 
the other card I added the strips to the corner as well and added Gold Foil Tape
along the edge (the photo looks silver but is actually gold). 

I stamped the bunny and flowers and title in Fern Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad
and used a grey pencil to colour in the top of the bunny. 

Remember this great stamp set Easter Bunny—February Stamp of the Month is only available throughout February from my website or from your Close to My Heart Consultant. Also the Workshops Your Way® Hello Lovely Scrapbooking Kit 
is only available until the end of the current Seasonal Expressions Catalogue so is only available until the end of April. 

Thanks so much for dropping by to check out my latest projects. I'm really interested to hear what you think about it, so I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop on our Australasian Blog Hop which is Chris Woodward.

  3. Lovely cards. I like how you've shown different colours for the bunnies.

    1. thanks Georgia, not all bunnies are the same colour so I had to showcase the possibilities :)

  4. Oh I think I will have to case your scraps idea - I have a challenge later this year to use paper scraps, so this looks like it may be my design. Fab cards

  5. Great ideas Vandra - I especially like the patchwork/strippy one at the end.
