CCMC191 – Everybunny

Oh, we have a fun color challenge for you this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!  Wonderful SPRING colors…So Saffron, Wild Wasabi and Island Indigo!  We've had such mild weather, it feels like spring around here…another sunny day…very unusual for Ohio in February!

 

 

When I first saw this set in the main catalog last summer, it was on my first order…even though I knew I wouldn't use it for MONTHS yet.  It is just too cute!  I have some wonderful pictures of the boys coloring Easter eggs when they were little…some day I will get them scrapbooked!  lol!

 

 

For this card, I wanted to try something with the Framelits.  Can you tell that is what I used along the bottom of the So Saffron layer?  I used the largest one and put the 4" wide So Saffron cardstock in under the cutting blade, and the other end on top of the Framelit.   Then I only ran it thru far enough to cut the bottom…not all the way…I just reversed and pulled it back out.  That way I got just the cut on one end.  Did anyone else think of that?  I haven't seen it!

 

My base is Whisper White.  I layered on the So Saffron that was cut with the Label Framelit and embossed with Snow Burst (this is still available to order!).  I added a strip of Wild Wasabi Just Add Cake Designer Paper, layered on Island Indigo cardstock and wrapped the Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon around and tied a knot.

 

I stamped Miss Bunny with Black Stazon, then watercolored with my AquaPainter and Stampin' Write Markers.  I did add a little Crumb Cake color for the bunny…she couldn't be yellow or green or blue, now could she?  I used one of the smaller Label Framelits to cut her out and attached with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Finally, I stamped Happy Easter, Everybunny, in Black Stazon and punched with the Modern Label punch (I love how it coordinates!), then used a little clip to hold it in place at the top of the So Saffron layer!

 

Make sure to check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary...as usual, I'm always inspired by their creations!

I just ordered this set a couple of weeks ago.  I thought it was a must have too and can't wait to use it.  This is such a cute card!  I love all the detail and the bunny is adorable.
