Some Bunny Loves You….

Some Bunny Loves you…. and this little bunny stamp is sooo cute, and versatile!

I made 2 cards yesterday after I had made the wooden bunny tags that I featured in yesterdays blog post {{click here to see them}}

The stamp I used is a Crafty Stamps cling rubber stamp made by Stampers Grove in Edinburgh, I have been going to their fab workshops each Saturday,  they have a huge selection of their own brand stamps, they are great quality and give really nice impressions..

The first card I made is a girly Easter card, featuring a spot of water colour background (which seems to be the in thing right now) and some Basic grey enamel dots.   I stamped the bunny onto pink patterned paper using soft granite dye ink, i stamped it off onto scratch paper first, and then stamped onto the patterned paper to give a softer impression and lighten the ink a tad

Hearts & Rabbits

Yesterday was a busy and productive day, I managed to record and 2 videos onto youtube, and get the blog post up for the Use it Up Mini Book.

Once I had cleared up the aftermath from that, I managed to have a chat with my friend Deb on Skype, and catch up with what we’ve both been up to…

After that I sat down and had a wee play around with sticky back canvas I bought when I ordered my gel medium last week, and also make a couple of valentines cards for my Etsy shoppe, seeing as I found my Making Memories valentine paper that I had lost 🙂
