Thank you for joining us for the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop. I am so honored that Kylie Bertucci from Australia asked me to be the guest designer for her Crazy Crafters team this month. The Crazy Crafters will be CASE-ing (Copy and Selectively Edit-ing) a project from my gallery. I was to choose something from my gallery to CASE also.
I am so excited to see what the Crazy Crafters select for inspiration, and their resulting creations! The blog line-up will be at the end of my post, so you can hop along from one blog to the next. Let the fun begin!
This is one of my favorite Baby Bear cards that I chose to CASE. Many of my friends are becoming grandparents. And, my younger daughter has a number of friends getting married and starting families. So, I need to have “baby” cards on hand.
Baby Bear has appeared on many of my cards for numerous occasions, since he was introduced: Thanksgiving, birthday, hello, get well, miss you, Valentines Day, Christmas, and baby cards. Here’s a couple of the more recent ones:
I’ve been a big fan of Baby Bear, so you can imagine my delight at seeing the Sweet Little Something Bunny in the Occasions 2018 Catalog. And what could be more appropriate for a “HOP?”
I found the Soft Sky Designer Series Paper in Coffee Break , and used the Cable Knit Embossing Folder to make it look like a baby blanket. I layered this on Sahara Sand cardstock which was layered on a Thick Whisper White card base.
I couldn’t wait to 3-step stamp the bunny, and selected my three colors. The first, detailed stamp was Tuxedo Black, second Chocolate Chip, and third Sahara Sand. Stamping dark to light is the way to go, and I used his bottom and arm pits as guides. Doesn’t he look real? I want to squeeze his fuzzy, little body!
He fit perfectly within the largest Layering Circle Die, and I used the scallop edged circle for cutting a Sahara Sand Frame. The Bunch of Banners Die made a frame for the cute sentiment, “Sweet little somebunny.”
I think this new Organza Ribbon might be my favorite ribbon EVER! I love how you can see through it. For instance, I like how it doesn’t cover up the “S” in the sentiment.
I completed the inside of the card with “Hip Hop Hurray!” which also comes in the stamp set. The two die cut flowers are from the new Petal Palette.
The envelope flap was covered with a piece of dotted Sahara Sand DSP.
TIP: If you haven’t done this before, cut a piece of DSP, 5 3/4″ X 2 1/2″. Glue the border of the flap, adhere DSP, and let your scissors follow the edge around the flap. It’s easier than I thought it would be to have a nice, clean edge.
I hope you enjoyed getting to know Sweet Little Something Bunny. I’ll be hopping along with you to see all of the wonderful inspiration from the Crazy Crafters.
Thank you for making me feel so special!
