Hi Crafty Friends,
I am back with another fun and exciting card design by Lisa Tilson of My Card Trip blog. She is soooo creative. Every one of her creations is fabulous and this one is no exception. Today she is showcasing the Sweetest Somebunny stamp and die set by My Favorite Things. It features an adorable bunny… go figure… and an awesome layout. Take a look below, then don’t forget to pop over to her blog for oodles more inspiration!
Oh, don’t let me forget, we have a challenge going on for the month of May. Check at the details below!
Hello there, today I am delighted to be back as a guest today on the Foiled Fox blog, and I have a card for you featuring My Favorite Things Sweetest Somebunny. A lovely set with storybook images you can use to create a Spring/Summer bunny scene – particularly when paired with the Stacey Yacula/MFT Scene Builder set.
I often like to mix and match my mediums on a card, I think it adds interest to the card. So, although I Copic colour my images, I watercoloured my background. I love the softness you can get with a watercolour background and the texture you get using a different cardstock.
I took some Arches cold pressed paper and the Altenew 36 Pan Watercolor set and using a 3/4″ flat brush, added Coral Berry, Warm Sunshine, and Forest Glades from top to bottom, blending them together as I went. I let it dry and then added a second layer for a little more depth. Next, I stamped the Scene Builder onto Neenah 110lb and coloured it with Copics – I did stamp a few extra accents like the flowers and grass mounds as those details really add to building the scene. I also stamped one of the bunnies from Sweetest Somebunny, coloured that and used the coordinating die-namics to cut it out. Copic markers that I used are listed below. I set them aside to work on the frame.
I took a panel of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock and die cut an oval window using the Hero Arts Nesting Infinity Oval dies. I took the same dies, picked two different sizes, and die cut a white frame. The frame was adhered onto the window panel with wet adhesive and I added some foam tape to the back ready to pop up on my base.
The watercolour background was adhered directly onto the Neenah Desert Storm card base with DST. I then added the tree/grass panel on top with wet adhesive. Finally, I popped up the bunny using foam tape.
To finish the card, I stamped and heat embossed a greeting from the set onto pink cardstock. It was trimmed with a MFT Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strip die. This was then attached with a mix of foam tape and wet adhesive as it straddles the frame.
I hope that you like the card today and it inspires you to get out your supplies and have a play! A big thank you to Foiled Fox for having me as a guest again – it’s always a pleasure to be here on their blog. Thank you too for joining me today, I appreciate it so very much. Happy crafting!
