I was looking through my new stash of Occasions Catalog goodies to see what would look good in this week’s Global Design Project colors, when Sweet Little Something Bunny hopped up saying, “me, me, me, I look good in Crumb Cake!”
I had to agree, and I aim to please, so here he is:
My daughter named her first stuffed bunny “Hop Hop,” so that’s what we’ll call this one. I thought she was very smart to come up with that name, because cows say moo, cats say meow, etc., etc, but what do rabbits say?
To make Hop Hop come alive, it is a three stamp process. I first stamped the most detailed stamp in Basic Black ink, followed by the medium detailed stamp in Crumb Cake, and the mostly smooth stamp in Sahara Sand.
TIP: Going from dark to light is the easiest way to line it up. I used his bottom and armpits as guides.
I found the pretty, Lemon Lime Twist heart in the Sure Do Love You stamp set. I masked Hop Hop, so I could stamp the heart without getting the green on top of him. Masking means I cut out his image from a second stamping, and placed it on top of him while stamping the heart. Make sense?
We layered Hop Hop on a Crumb Cake card base with a Lemon Lime Twist frame, and all that was missing was Real Red. Hop Hop thought little, red hearts from Sure Do Love you would be perfect, especially since they could be cut with their own dies.
And, they said just what he wanted to say, “Be Mine,” “I’m Yours,” “Always.”
Thanks for hopping by my blog! Hop Hop would love for you to comment.
