Down the Bunny Hole

down the bunny holeHippity Hoppity Easter’s on it’s way! And today I have a fun little punch art Easter project for you! This little bunny butt is created with a variety of different punches and is super fun to make! Let’s take a look at how to make this card.

Start with a piece of old olive cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of the flowerpot designer series paper (DSP). You can really choose any fun DSP that you have on hand. Punch out a black and a white 2 inch circles. The white 2 inch circle will be the bunny butt and the black circle represents the “hole” that the bunny is jumping into. For the feet, punch out 2 white extra large ovals and 2 blushing bride (pink) large ovals. For the tail, use the boho blossoms punch with white paper and layer all 3 of the pieces to form the bushy tail. I sponged a bit of blushing bride (pink) ink on all of the white pieces just to make them stand out a bit more. Take a black or gray marker and draw little lines on the feet to represent the bunny’s toes. For the finishing touches, I took a 1 1/4 x 4 inch piece of old olive cardstock and snipped the top edge with a fringe scissors so it resembled grass. You can also add a bit of ribbon and a little sentiment to the grassy area as shown. Enjoy!

Punch Art ~ Easter Bunny

punch art easter bunnySpring is in the air which means that Easter is right around the corner!  So I decided to play around with my punches to see if I could create an adorable little bunny. And I have to say, I was pretty excited about how this little one turned out!  If you are not familiar with punch art, it basically consists of using different punched shapes to create an image…and in this case, an Easter Bunny!

Start with a fun background for your bunny!  I decided to stamp a piece of crumb cake cardstock with the Hardwood stamp. Kinda looks like the bunny is standing in front of a wood fence or door. 🙂 Every piece of this bunny was created with a different shape. So get out those punches and framelits! I mainly used punches to create the different parts of the bunny but if you have framelits (ovals and circles) those will work just fine as well. Here is a list of the punches used:

  • Face of the bunny = Upside down heart
  • Eyes = 3/4 inch circle punch
  • Body = 2 1/2 inch circle punch
  • Feet = Extra Large Oval punch
  • Ears = Extra Large and Large Oval punches (you can use oval framelits too)
  • Nose = 1 inch circle punch and an itty bitty heart punch
  • Eggs = the smallest oval punch you can find (or you can cut them out by hand). You can use your favorite colorful pattered papers for this.

You can use white and black (or gray) markers to drawn on the little swooshes to the eyes and ears. I also sponged a bit of blushing bride ink on the edges of the bunny pieces just to give them a little bit more dimension (they stand out a little better). For the finishing touch, I decided to add a little Easter sentiment cut out with the word window punch and embellished with a few pearls. Oh…and don’t forget to add an adorable little bow on the bunny’s head. Cute, hey?

People Like You ~ Easter Wishes

Here is the last Easter card I have for you…for now. 🙂  This card was inspired by a swap I received at the leadership convention this past January.The card showcases one of the new stamp sets called “People like you” which can be found in the spring Occasions Catalog.

To make this card, start with a piece of whisper white cardstock for the base of the card. Cut a 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of elegant eggplant cardstock and emboss it with the tulip embossing folder. Cut a 4 1/4 x 3 inch piece of wisteria wonder and a 4 x 2 3/4 inch piece of whisper white cardstock. Stamp the flower image in elegant eggplant onto the white cardstock. Adhere the stamped piece to the wisteria wonder piece and mount to the card. Punch out two decorative labels; one in wisteria wonder and the other in elegant eggplant. Cut the light purple (wisteria wonder) decorative label in half and mount it behind the dark purple (elegant eggplant). Stamp your favorite sentiment on a little banner and secure to the decorative labels. Add some dazzling details and a few rhinestones to embellish!  Enjoy!

Easter Blessings

Happy Friday Everyone! Today I want to share another great Easter card design with all of you! This card was inspired by a beautiful swap I received from Diana Tillery. 

To make this card, start with a piece of whisper white cardstock for your base. Cut a 4 3/4 x 4 inch piece of strawberry slush cardstock for your background. Take a piece of pistachio pudding cardstock and run it through the big shot with the “On film” framelit to cut out the pistachio pudding frame as shown in the picture. Cut a 3 1/2 x 4 inch piece of whisper white cardstock…this is the piece you will do your stamping on. 

Grab the following ink pad colors:  Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush, and So Saffron. Stamp the summer silhoutte images onto your smaller piece of whisper white cardstock using these colors.  The leaves and little flowers are some of the images you will find in the set. Stamp a large sentiment, using strawberry slush ink, towards the top of the cardstock overlapping a bit onto your leaf images. Once you have all of the images stamped on the white piece adhere the “frame,” you cut out earlier, over the top. Stamp a few butterflies, using So Saffron ink, punch them out and adhere to your card with dimensionals. Add  few pearls and some bits of a paper doily to embellish!  Beautiful card! Thanks so much for sharing the ideas with us Diana!

Petite Petals ~ Easter

Today I have another Easter card design to share with all of you. The cool thing about this card is that if you change out the sentiment, it could be a card for any occasion! 

To make this card, start with a piece of whisper white cardstock for the base of the card. Cut a 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of pink pirouette and a 5 x 3 3/4 inch piece of whisper white.  Using the smaller piece of whisper white, stamp the petite petal images diagonally across the cardstock with pink pirouette and so saffron ink. Once you have completed the stamping, emboss the piece of cardstock with the polka dots embossing folder.

To make the tag, cut a 2 x 4 inch piece of whisper white cardstock. Cut a 1 1/2 x 2 inch piece of watercolor designer paper and adhere it to the top of the tag…punch out the tag top using the new scallop tag topper punch! For the oval window, cut a piece of so saffron cardstock with one of the smaller framelit ovals….then I used my small oval punch to cut out the center. I laid this oval piece on the tag and stamped the Happy Easter through it. Then I simply embellished the card with a bit of victoria crochet ribbon, a little petite petal flower and pearls.

Blessed Easter

Now I know that Easter is about a month away but…I thought it would be great to get a jump start on few projects. And…I also have had several requests for Easter cards so many of you are thinking the same way I am!  Easter will be here before you know it! There are some great Easter and Spring themed stamp sets in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog…like this one called Blessed Easter.

To make this card, start out with a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of whisper white. Stamp the Blessed Easter image on the left hand side of the card using black ink. Next, stamp the watercolor image, from the Happy Water Color stamp set, over the top of the tulips using blushing bride and pistachio pudding ink. Then embellish the card with some chevron ribbon, gold sequin trim and a little bow tied out of pink pirouette taffeta ribbon. Just a little tip about the sequin trim…I ran a piece of sticky strip across the chevron ribbon to hold the gold sequin trim in place.  I snipped off some of the sequins so they didn’t go behind the white cardstock with the ribbon. I saved those little pieces and random adhered them to the right side of the card with glue dots. This is one of my favorite Easter cards…stayed tuned for more Easter ideas. 🙂
