Welcome to our Australasian Blog Hop. We have all been creating with the "" Stamp 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.
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
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.
I made the cards with
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)
I drew around the Somebunny Wishes You banner with Then coloured in flowers and bunny with my ShinHan Markers. 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
the other card I added the strips to the corner as well and added
along the edge (the photo looks silver but is actually gold).
and used a grey pencil to colour in the top of the bunny.
Remember this great stamp set is only available throughout February from my website or from your Close to My Heart Consultant. Also the
is only available until the end of the current Seasonal Expressions Catalogue so is only available until the end of April.
