{ FCCB #154 - Easter }

I said hip hop
the hippie, the hippie
to the hip hip 


Due to my Pinterest addiction, I have been seeing more and more "Punch Art" lately.  So, when I wanted to make an Easter Card, rather than looking to a specific Cricut cart with a bunny on it, I looked at ways to create a bunny from different shapes. There are more ways to fashion a bunny than you can imagine; but, to me, there is nothing cuter than a bunny butt!

I used Cricut Accent Essentials for all my shapes.  The stump is Tim Holtz' Wood grain embossing folder on kraft Cardstock, which I inked in Tea Dye (using a Blending Tool) and then inked in Vintage Photo, by applying the ink to the raised parts directly from the ink pad.  I trimmed the top portion of the embossed piece at an angle and then rounded the corners in order to make it look more stump-ish.

I lightly inked around all of the shapes as well as the Card itself using Tim Holtz' Brushed Corduroy ink.  The grass background is Tim Holtz' Mowed Lawn ink, applied directly to the Card; and the grass clumps are green Cardstock that I trimmed with my scissors.

The base of his tail, which you cannot see, is a scalloped circle; and it's topped with about 1/3 of a cotton ball.

The patterned paper that served as the canvas for my bunny creation is from Pebbles.

Be sure to take a look at all of the other DT Easter Projects for FCCB #154 and try one of your own!

Happy Easter Every Bunny!

{ FCCB #152 - Luck O' the Irish! }

Kiss Me, I'm Pretending to be Irish!

I thought this fairly simple Card was so appropriate for this week's FCCB Challenge to make a St. Patrick's Day Card.

Those fabulous lips, which are cut on green glitter paper, are from the Indie Art Cricut cart.  The Card is really prettier in real life...but you get the idea!

Go check out what the rest of the DT has prepared this week and you'll be inspired to make a fantabulous St. Patty's Day Card too!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
