Happy Easter – Team Stamp It Blog Hop

header

Hello there and welcome back for the Stamp It Group’s blog hop ~ Easter!

Today I’m sharing my Punch Art Bunny Butt card!  I knew I would be making a bunny butt card as soon as I saw the Honeycomb Embellishments.  It sure makes for the perfect fluffy tail, don’t you think?  While the bunny is created using several Circle Punches and the Large Oval Punch, she is pretty easy to figure out.  I am including instructions on how I made the flowers though.

Here are some close up photos of today’s card creation!

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE FLOWERS

Cut two pieces of floral wire (about 3-1/2″ long) and one more (about 3″ long) . These wires are used as “hollyhock” stems and one will be used as a “sunflower” stem.  I found that 18-gauge green floral wire works well.  Punch ten flowers from Rose Red Cardstock using the flower punch from Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. Punch ten hearts from Old Olive Cardstock using the heart punch from Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.

To make hollyhocks, curl the round edges of the hearts around something small in diameter, I used a wooden skewer.  Attach a Mini Glue Dot to the front of each heart, then pinch around the floral wire so the rounded edges curl back. Rotate the wire so the leaves are facing different directions. Attach five leaves each on two wires.  If desired, use a Pearl Basic Jewel in the center of each flower.

Attach five of the four petal flowers to each of the two stems using Mini Glue Dots. (Position the flowers so they cover up the floral wire.) Bend the petals upward to give the flowers dimension.

To create sunflowers, punch two flowers from So Saffron Cardstock using the Petite Petals Punch.  Wet all three flowers using a fine mist from a spray bottle. Lay each flower on the Stampin’ Pierce Mat, then press down in the center of each flower with the handle of the Paper-Piercing Tool. This will create dimension by causing the flowers to curl up.  If desired, use a Rhinestone Basic Jewel or Silver Mini Brad in the center of each flower.  Attach a Mini Glue Dot to the back of each flower, then press onto the floral wire.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you will continue the rest of the way around our hop!

For Peeps’ Sake

I cannot believe how quick the first quarter of the year has gone by!  My daughter has registered for high school and we attended orientation and open house last week.  She is also going to be trying out for the freshman cheer squad.    Tomorrow is Easter, so I thought I’d better get my butt in gear and produce something with this stamp set!  I punched a bunch of flowers to create a floral wreath around the greeting/window!  I LOVE how it turned out!

Team Stamp It Easter Blog Hop – Easter Frame

header

Welcome to the Team Stamp It Easter Blog Hop! Hopefully, you already checked out Tami White’s awesome creation, but if not, you can head there afterwards!  Yesterday was the First Day of Spring, so lets kick off Spring in the right direction, shall we?  I created a little Easter frame that will look good on a desk or your kitchen counter.  It is small enough (6-1/2″ square) to place just about anywhere.  I loved how it turned out!

I hope you are enjoying today’s hop and continue through the rest of the posts!

It’s Tuesday and you know what that means…another installment of the UDI Color Challenge.  Here is our color inspiration photo.

Color Challenge #208

This weeks color challenge is an Easter project and I had so much fun making it!  A lot of punches were used to make the bunny but it is so worth the extra effort.  She is just too stinkin’ cute!

Easter Bunny Card-in-a-Box

I have seen a lot of these types of cards (card-in-a-box) on Pinterest and finally got to make one recently.  What I love about this card is that is lays flat and fits into one of our medium sized envelopes.  This photo does not do this card justice!  It is freakin’ adorable in person, check out the bunny waving his paw!  I also had fun with the new Fringe Scissors to cut the grass at different angles!
