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!!!!
