Sneaky Bunny Duet

Hi Everyone and Happy Wednesday! It's another day of sneak previews over on the Verve Blog, and today the Divas are peeking two new sets. The first one is called Bunny Duet and is a single stamp that I used on today's card. The second set is called Chocolate Bunnies. Be sure to hop on over to the Verve Blog and leave a comment for a chance to win the sets being peeked today!




I started my card by moving the lateral file I store my cardstock and die cuts so I could get the Top Note Die that fell behind it about 3 weeks ago! This involved displacing a whole lot of stuff in order to get to it, but in the process I also found my Grateful Elegance set, some yellow ribbon and my word window punch, so an idea for the card was born! I ran the Top Note through my Big Shot twice, once with Barely Banana and once with white. I then stamped the Bunny Duet stamp in Chocolate Chip craft ink and embossed with clear EP. The bunnies are colored with Copic markers and highlighted with a Stardust Gel pen and a blender pen. Next I stamped the bunnies again on copy paper, trimmed out and used as a mask to stamp the Grateful Elegance background on the panel in Creamy Caramel. The edges are inked with first Vintage Photo, then Tea Dye Ranger Distress ink and then layered on dimensionals onto the barely banana top note.

Next I ran a piece of Kraft cardstock through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder and then wrapped some wide Chocolate Chip satin ribbon across it. The sentiment is from the Circular Sayings set that was peeked on the Verve blog yesterday and is embossed with Chocolate Chip Craft ink then punched out with the SU! 1.25" circle punch. I also stamped it with the Grateful Elegance background and inked the edges, before layering on the 1 3/8" barely banana circle and then the Chocolate Chip scallop circle. I had to place my sentiment where I did to hide an ink smudge, so I decided to balance out the card with a word window punch on the side and accent it with a Button Latte button and some liquid pearl accents.

Then I just happened to notice a few primas laying on the desk and decided to use that yellow ribbon and the flowers to make another little embellishment. I finished off with a pearl brad and some Stardust Stickles on the flower, ribbon and the bow and necklace.

  5. This card is adorable! I love all the sponging you did -you are queen of sponging! The colors you chose, all the pearl accents, ribbon, everything is great!!

    Funny about losing some supplies behind the file cabinet. You may know I am completely redoing my stamping area, and yesterday I found a box of primas, my Abuntant Blessings set, one of my smaller circle nestie dies and my 1/2" circle punch behind all my stuff! I had about given up on that box of primas -finding it was just like Christmas!

    Anyway, all the peeks so far have been wonderful, huh?!

  17. This is beautiful!! I have a question about that top note die...which I have and am new to...
    How did you get the white piece smaller so you can layer? Did you have to use scissors to trip the perforations??
