A Spring Bunny

Hi ya on a lovely sunny spring afternoon here in Upstate South Carolina. Hopefully the storm danger from this last weather front has passed our area & surely hope if you have any threats in your part of the world, that you & your loved ones stay safe.

Big warm welcome to a new follower, Miss Ileana of Sparkling Pink. Please do stop by Ileana's lovely blog and leave some love. She has a gorgeous glamorous butterfly card shared today (thanks to the latest Butterfly Challenge) - which is another lovely place to visit & perhaps submit a card.

Today's card:


- Unknown image found in the recent snippet cleanup. Believe this was stamped long ago from a borrowed stamp, when I was still going to a Thursday stamping group. The little bunny would have been a cute Easter card, yes? (But now he's a Spring Bunny). Colored with Copics - think this is Neenah paper. Die cut the bunny with MFT Die Namic pierced oval stax. MS white flocking on his tail, and WoStella* on the flower. Used Colorless Blender to wet an old chenille sweater and dabbed around on the gray to create more 'fur texture' to Bunny's body, but it's not showing up in the photo.
 
- S/B Card Creator A2 Tranquil Moments dies for the purple & green mats. Used gold pearls to bring out the flower center. I am really loving these new 2014 S/B dies, but I'm not so loving the higher prices. Which is why I'm trying to find them on sale at some of the daily deal sites mentioned in earlier posts.
 
- card base front was inked with DI Lilac, Dusty Concord, Sage & Peeled Paint using the TH round sponge tool. Spritzed with water then Tattered Angels Irridescent Gold spray.
 
Saw a neat Scrap Made Simple Youtube (#97) with a new-to-me product called Wink of Luna. You have to zip by the beginning blah-blah to get to the marker demos, but the pens looked like a wonderful tool to add to your supplies. I googled WoLuna, and most places that yielded a hit - were Out of Stock. SMS has them, but I found one other place that had a better price: http://www.stampingscrapping.com/  . Have an order placed, and will let you know my opinion on these as soon as I get one in my hot little hands. Just doing my bit to enable all who need help with this! LOL.
 
In the meantime, have a wonderful afternoon. Enjoy whatever it is that you may be doing today; God Bless, and Many Hugs. Thanks for stopping in to chat!

Your card is delightful Mary. What a lovely bunny!! The die cuts have framed it perfectly. We have rather a lot of rabbits at the moment, lots of babies of various sizes, they are really very bold and will sit in front of our patio doors looking in...cheeky little devils!! Suzy the dog wanders around the garden and paddock and ignores them!! xx

Just adore this cute bunny Mary and love the colouring. The background with that S/B die is so pretty and the purple one being darker is good behind the topper, it makes our eyes focus on the topper more. Glad the storms appear to have gone from your area. x

Carol L said...

This bunny is just as precious as can be, and the background you created looks amazing! I never heard of the WOL markers either, so I'll be staying tuned for updates :)

Shona Erlenborn said...

Gorgeous card Mary, what a precious little bunny and his coloring is awesome. Love all the dies you used too, one can never have enough, right! I wonder what the difference on the markers is? Stars now moon! Will look forward to hearing your review!

Gorgeous card! I love, love, LOVE the green and purple mats. I too, have been eyeing the SB's new big dies but first I must wait and see what the birthday fairy will bring me.

I had a giggling at the enabing. I think blog-hopping is just one big enable after another, even when people aren't consciously trying.
