Here comes Peter..... No Wait!


Totally NOT a boy bunny... can't be Peter Cottontail. She is definitely a bunnette? Bunnita? Are girl bunnies still just bunnies? Hmmmm.....I should ask my friend Joni.... who has real bunnies at her house. I think we need to name her! Leave a comment with a name for this cute bunny, and if we (the kids and I) like your name best, this card will be on it's way to your house! I'm picking a winner on Saturday so she can be on her way by Monday. :)

I saw a bunny made by Tallymom on SCS. Click on her name to see her awesome gallery. She does amazing things with punches, and you all know how much I LOVE my punches. Thanks for the inspiration babe!! YOU rock!

This cutie is totally made with just punches! I used the
1 3/8 circle punch for her face, the small and large oval punches for her ears. The 1/2 inch circle punch for the snout (is it a snout? cheeks?), 1/4 inch circle for the nose, and the 1/4 inch square for the teeth. Finally, the double circle for the eyes. Her little bow is just a knot attached with a mini glue dot. The ear is folded over with half of a dimensional in between. You know those little pieces of the dimensionals sheets around the edge? I just cut out one of those... gotta use every piece.

Of course I wasn't done with my punches yet. The bottom of the card is a strip of the new
Petals & Paisleys DS paper. Then I cut a piece of cool caribbean card stock 1 1/2 x 4 1/4 and used the slit punch (pushed all the way in) side by side to make that scallop. After you punch it all the way across, then I trimmed it down a bit and placed it over the top of the DS paper. Add some ribbon, and some colored brads (with the spongey mat from the Crafter's Took Kit and the poker thingy) and the bottom was complete. Before all of that though, the whole card was rollered with the Petals Jumbo wheel in whisper white craft ink. I also did the same to the so saffron piece under the bunny. The tab on the side is the spring stamp from Everyday Flexible Phrases on the new Round Tab Punch of course. :)

Okay..... I totally spent A's preschool time on stampin' instead of laundry. I MUST go and get milk and do at least a few loads of laundry.

Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail.....now that song will be in my head all day.... SNORT! What is her name?????? Tell me girls!!!!

Love your card. The bunny is so cute. My first thought was her name should be Petals or Gingham. Them when I saw that you had used the Petals and Paisley paper, I knew it should be Petals.

Jana Weaver said...

Beautiful card! She's just adorable!! How about calling her the Country Bunny after the wonderful book? It's one of the original children's books about a working mother!! (and it was written almost 60 years ago!!)

Thanks for sharing!

This card is sooooooooo CUTE! Love the colors and the scallop with the brads....how do you get the brads so perfectly centered???

Susie said...

How about Pasty. She looks like a Patsy - Here comes Patsy Cottontail. Darling card. Thanks for a link to Tallymom's gallery - I bookmarked it as I love my punches too and am always looking for inspiration in using them.

Bev said...

I think she could be Punchella, she she was made with punches.

Crystal said...

My very simple 7 year old said "Cutie". I guess she likes it!

Anonymous said...

Adri calls all girlie bunnies "FLUFFY" so that would probably be her vote.

Glad you're feeling better, girl! HUGS! - jenn

neighbor_nancy said...

I've gotta call her Niblet, or Nibs for short! Why? I had a sweet girl bunny and she'd nibble on everything! Love the card, Cambria!!

Hugs,

Nancy

Linda McClain said...

You are such a genius. What a great card. Okay, since I'm from TX, how about I suggest some good ole Texas names like Ethel, Mabel, Iris. No? Alright, how about "Here comes Tammy Cotton Tail"? Kind of rolls off the tongue.

ldcamer said...

I vote for Hoppina, my kids say Hopper, but that isn't very girlie, so Hoppina it is.

Cambria Turnbow said...

Terry,
I use the poker and that soft mat from the crafter's tool kit and just eyeball the center. :)

Thanks for all your names girls... this will be hard one to pick! :)

Cambria,
Thanks for sharing your beautiful creations - you're an inspiration! Anyway, I think Peter's sister Priscilla is as cute as can be!

Her name has got to be BorkaBunny!

Selina said...

What an adorable card! My daughter likes Fluffy (everything is always fluffy to her), but also likes Lillie Flower the best.

Brenda said...

Beautiful! She looks like a Ms. Cottonbottom. Ms. Patricia Cottonbottom to be exact! Peter & Patricia sitting in a tree, k-i-s-s-i-n-g, first come love, then comes marriage.... the rest is history! Happy Easter all.
