Punch Art Bunny

Control Freaks Tour de Freaks is coming tomorrow, April 20th!!!  Don't forget to stop by and take the tour!


Sorry I've been missing a few days!  I'm in the midst of preparing for the next session of Create with Connie and Mary!  So, I have been creating…just not anything I can show on my blog!  We do have some FUN projects for you, so be watching for our Early Bird Special…starts soon!


I remember when I first started doing Punch Art…hardly anyone was doing it!  Now it has exploded and everyone seems to be creating lots of characters with punches!  Makes me happy to use my Stampin' Up! punches in a way that wasn't originally intended!  I know I've seen a BUNCH of different ways to do bunnies…this one I thought was cute, especially paired with one of my FAVORITE Stampin' Up! designer papers…Nursery Suite!  This pattern is one of my favorites IN that designer paper package, too!



The card base is Baja Breeze and I layered on a strip of the Nursery Suite Designer Paper along the left.  I cut a Top Note from Pink Pirouette and put it back in the Big Shot to emboss it with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder.  I used the 2 1/2 Circle Punch with Early Espresso cardstock in the background, then a 1 1/4" Circle of Pear Pizzazz.  I placed the Pear PIzzazz under the 2 1/2 circle slightly, and added a Pink Flower Brad with a Rhinestone Jewel in the center.  I stamped Happy Easter from Stampin' Up!'s  Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set with Early Espresso Classic Ink on Whisper White then punched with the Small Oval Punch and layered on a Baja Breeze Large Oval Punch.


To make the bunny, I punched the Wide Oval from Whisper White for the Body.  The feet and inside ears are two Small Ovals punched from the Designer Paper.  The outside ears are the Large Oval punched from Whisper White.  The eyes are 1/8" Circles from Basic Black and I used the White Gel Pen to add a highlight.  The nose is the smallest heart from the Heart to Heart punch in Pink Pirouette with a White Gel Pen highlight and popped up with a partial dimensional on the Wide Oval.  The whiskers are strips of Whisper White.  Since my bunny is a girl, I added a 1/8" Taffeta Pretty in Pink Bow between her ears!


I think my bunny is FUN and CUTE!  What do yo think?
