Everybunny's gone punny

I knew exactly what set I was going to use to make a card for CAS-ual Fridays this week - Everybunny! It's a set of 8 stamps featuring some very cute rabbits indeed and a punny Easter sentiment. Now I'm not normally much of a one for cute but I fell head over heels in love with these rabbits the minute I saw them! They're not just for Easter either, I've got heaps of ideas for different ways to use them! Watch this space...

In the meantime, come and have a look at today's card:

Aren't those rabbits the cutest little creatures?! I've used three from the set, grouping them together with my stamp-a-majig and some masks made out of post it notes. Here's a close-up:

They're stamped in Basic Grey ink (which is slightly waterproof) and then coloured in using markers and my aquapainter.

The sentiment, which I coloured with markers, fits nicely in the oval punch. Do you like the tone-on-tone effect of the Lace Ribbon border? I cut it from smooth card stock so that it would contrast with the textured card stock mount, and threaded it with this spring-like ribbon in Daffodil Delight.

Supplies needed for this card:
Stamps: Everybunny
Ink: Basic Grey, Old Olive, Baja Breeze
Card stock: Very Vanilla, Marina Mist smooth and textured, watercolour paper
Other: Markers, Lace Ribbon border punch, oval punch, 1/8" taffeta ribbon in Daffodil Delight, aquapainter, stamp-a-majig

I shall enjoy seeing what everyone else has come up with for this pun and silly joke challenge. And while I'm on the subject of jokes, thank you to everyone who commented and left emails with more jokes in response to my son's one yesterday - we have thoroughly enjoyed them all. I'm off to the dentist today though which will wipe the smile off my face...

Have a good day today and I'll see you tomorrow,


  1. Super card! Yes, Vicky, it is the cutest softly coloured. And I do like the tone on tone effect with your lovely border, too.

    Good luck at the dentist!

  3. This is just adorable Vicky. I am ashamed to say I had not even seen this set before in the catalogue, I even had to open it and have a look, and there it was on p28!

  4. Sweet!! The image has such a lovely vintage feel and is beautifully coloured.

  21. Vicky, I just wanted to say 'thank you' for such a great blog. So many great ideas, I have been inspired in so many new ways! And your comments are hilarious! Your youngest son sounds like mine (although he's 21 and off around the country these days) he was, and still is, the cause of much laughter in our house. I live in Florida now but I was born and raised in Middlesex, maybe that's why your wit is not lost on me! I just had to tell you to keep up the good work, you are often the highlight of my day!

  22. Aww those little bunnies look like they are cousins of my bunnies, so sweet.

  23. What a SWEET card! The coloring are gorgeous! CUTE sentiment!So glad that you join the fun with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  24. This is just the sweetest card. I love how soft your coloring is...really matches the theme well.
    Thanks for joining us at CAS-ual Fridays this week:)
