Best Bunny Stampin' Up! Rabbit in a Hat Card Tutorial

Here is my easy way to make the pocket for the bunny. It is so simple, but I didn't want a lot of mechanism on the card ruining the "magic".

 I used tear tape on the sides of the table/cake stand and folded a rectangular piece of cardstock in half. Then, I put tear tap on both sides of it.

Next, I adhered it to the bottom of the "table" and removed the backing from the next three pieces of tear tape.
Then, I adhered it to the card centered above the "table base".  The bunny looks like this before you add the magical hat.

 Because it is such a close fit, the hat is only adhered to the table, so it is really easy to remove the bunny. However, I can turn it upside down, and the bunny doesn't fall out.

Tufted and Subtle Best Bunny Stampin' Up! card

I didn't post this little Birthday Bunny with the recent Inky Friends blog hop because my customers and downline made this card last weekend for my Hostess Appreciation Brunch, New Catalog Open House and Downline Meeting.  I wanted it to be a bit of a surprise. 

This card was quick to create because I positioned the stamps on the block using a punched shaped of the Bunny Punch. That made it so it would be stamped once and punched once. You just have to flip it--you'll see what I mean when you try it. Simple and quick! We did have to fussy cut the tiny hat and present, so I let everyone decide for themselves if they wanted to add those elements.

The new Stitched Labels Framelits are so useful! I really like the added detail on the circle I used for the sentiment.  The Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder added just a bit of texture to the Crumb Cake layer, and the Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder added a cute design behind the punched bunny.

My Inky Friends New Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog Blog Hop

Welcome to My Inky Friends Stampin' Up!'s 30th Anniversary Catalog Hop! SU! is Fabulous at 30, and there were so many cute sets I could have chosen for this hop.  I went with the obvious Best Bunny though, and I'm happy with my choice.

You've likely arrived from Cindy's Heart's Delight Cards where she used the lovely Accented Blooms Bundle for her pretty creations.

For this card, I used the Ruffled Textured Impressions Embossing Folder as a Merry Merlot curtain-y background. I used the cake stand from Cake Soiree as a Basic Grey table.  The Magician's hat was stamped on Whisper White and colored. Then, I added Clear Wink of Stella to it and to the word "Surprise" inside.

 You simply pull the rabbit out of the hat. The table has a bit of cardstock to stop the bunny from falling through, and I'll have a photo tutorial posted for it on Monday.

I also made this little sweetie hopping by and saying, "Hi".

 I didn't want to post this card until my customers and downline had made it, so here it is finally.  I used both the Tufted and Subtle backgrounds. I fussy cut and colored the present and hat with Stampin' Write markers and used the Stitched All Around die around the sentiment.

Now we'll continue to Kris's blog, Paper Fairy Kris. She used the Sea of Textures bundle for her adorable cards.

Abstract Impressions Springtime Impressions Stampin Up! cards

I immediately decided I would want to use the "trash" after sponging color on this pretty die cut. So, I used washi tape to affix the die cut to a cardfront of Thick Whisper White cardstock.

I sponged several new colors: Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, Pineapple Punch and Soft Sea Foam.  I added Powder Pink and then removed the tape.

After lifting the die cut mask/template, I was left with this pretty design.

I finished the card with a Happy Birthday sentiment and circle die cut from the Stitched Labels dies and popped up on dimensionals with a bit of Highland Heather cardstock under it.

I used ovals with Soft Sea Foam for the sponged die cut version.

Abstract Impressions Roses Delightfully Detailed Corners Stampin Up! card

This card is on a Granny Apple Green base with a Whisper White layer. The roses are stamped multiple times by twisting the stamp as it is stamped. This was a technique back when we had the set Roses in Winter, so I wanted to try it here and use it for next week's class. I used a Blender Pen to fill in the open areas of the small flowers.

To place the corner stamps, I punched first of course. Then, I lined up the edges of the stamp with the cardstock edges.  I made sure that I covered up the two edge petals of the punch almost completely.  (Just a little sliver should show at the top.)
