Happy birthday Everybunny!

I was going to do something quite different for today's post but got carried away (as I knew I would!) with the Everybunny stamp set. Yes I know it's not Easter for another month... er, well actually that's not very far away! But anyway, I'd love to show you what else you can do with this fabulous set. I'm starting today with a child's birthday card - come and have a look:


I've teamed one of the rabbits with the fabulous Happiest of Birthdays stamp set! The presents were coloured with markers before stamping and the rabbit was stamped onto a scrap of Naturals Ivory card stock and coloured with markers - I wanted to give him a hairy texture!
He usually looks like the picture above but I discarded the egg and the chick when I cut him out. So now he's popped up on dimensionals ready to open those exciting-looking presents!


I was delighted with the way this sentiment has a little indent that's just perfect for a rabbit to rest his ear in! I coloured the rubber directly with markers again before stamping - this is one of the simplest techniques but I use it over and over again as it is so effective. It's why I recommend getting all the markers to people just starting out with stamping: markers are so versatile, they're an affordable way to get loads of colours and you can find out which colours you use the most and get full-sized pads in them later.

Supplies needed for this card:
Stamps: Everybunny
Ink: Basic Grey
Card stock: Very Vanilla, Marina Mist smooth and textured, watercolour paper
Other: Markers in Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, paper piercer, mat pack, paper snips, stamp-a-majig

The other day I came across a funny story about rabbits on a blog I follow. Highland Monkey makes the most gorgeous knitted creatures (as well as being the most incredible all-round artist and crafter) and has recently made a set of fabulous ballet dancing bunnies. She made several posts about them and then was surprised to receive unsolicited mail from a local vets firm offering competitive rates for rabbit neutering! Do go and have a look at her wonderful creations and read about her response to the vet.

It's Three Minute Thursday here tomorrow - but will my quick card feature a bunny? Do hop back to find out!

Hugs,

  13. Gorgeous card, Vicky, I love the way you can find so many different uses for each stamp and sometimes parts of a stamp, it makes each one work so much harder for you, doesn't it?
