And now on to the projects that I made for today! First, I wanted to use the If Bunnies Could Talk Stamp & Die Combo. I swear the little bunny was actually talking to me from the package… “Use me… I need ink… please!” I had this idea in my head ever since we decided to move forward with the ‘big butt’ sentiment. You know the question every significant other dreads to answer is now being asked by bunnies around the world. *grin*
I wanted to give her a super oversized tail so I hand cut two fluffy layers of cardstock for her backside. And as always, the expressions for the critter could not be more hilarious. For my grassy layer I used our new Fringe Border release this month as well.
The stamp set comes with both the front and back of the bunny included, but the great part is that both the front and back are exactly the same shape and can be cut out using the same coordinating die included with the stamp set. I also had fun experimenting with the Let’s Talk Edger 1 released last month to make a home for the sentiment. Don’t let the long “border style” of this die fool you! You can cut it down to whatever size you need to fit your space!
Here’s a closer look at the two new products that I used on this project:
I combined these new products with several other TE products and you can find my whole supply list below:
For my next project, I went with the Wishes on a Wire – St. Paddy’s Day stamp. St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday I often overlook, but a stamp as cute as this one just couldn’t be overlooked!
I colored it with Copics and masked the image with masking paper before airbrushing the background with a light turquoise Copic (BG11). I die cut the image with Stitched Rectangle Stacklets and then paper pieced the white clouds with foam tape for added dimension.
I cut the bottom of the card front base with the Stitched Scallop Edger and adhered the green chevron patterned paper to the inside of the card. I also added a couple of our Little Bits – Shamrocks and a mini tag stamped with a sentiment from the Many Minis Occasions stamp set.
Here’s a look at the stamp that I used on this card. If you like this one, you’ll want to check out our whole collection of Wishes on a Wire stamps for lots of different holidays and occasions!
And here are all of the other supplies that I paired with the stamp to create this project:
