Early Bird Teacher Cards with Angela

Hello Everyone!

It's Angela here today and I'm so happy to share with you what I've made with the beautiful new BoBunny collection Early Bird.

May is Teacher Appreciation month and here in Italy we're about to the end of the school, so this is the theme of my project. What's better than handmade cards and gifts for your child's teachers?!

For the cards, I chose to experiment the Eclipse technique, that I never tried before, but with a few steps up.
The first card has a glittery heart made using the BoBunny Glitter Paste in blush color. To make it, I simply spread the Glitter Paste on white cardstock using a spatula; when dry I adhered the patterned paper flat on the cardstock and the writing Love with foam adhesive to create dimension.



In the close-up, you can see the pink glitter that appears through the cut of the writing Love and the stitching all around the card.



The second card has got the same writing Love and a fun shaker heart. Like the previous card, I adehered the written with foam adhesive, to give dimension and to make space for the rhinestones of the shaker heart.

For the gift packaging, I made two Pillow Boxes using the WRMK board; some twine and a few embellishments and voilĂ , the result is super cute.

For the other two boxes, which contain a small book, I went for something different. The first box has got a sewed garland wrapped all around and a knitted flower on the top.
The garland is very easy to make; I punched several circles using two punches, a simple circle punch and a scalopped circle punch, then I sewed them together with my sewing machine.

Here you can see the detail of the banner and the flower. OK, I admit I didn't make the knitted flower myself, it's a BoBunny DoubleDot embellishment :)

The second square box has two paper ribbons wrapped around, a few embellishments and a cute tag made always with the eclipse technique.

For the tag, I used again the Glitter Paste but this time in gold color.

That's all for today. I hope you liked my project ideas and that you are inspired somehow.
Thank you so much for stopping by and see you soon.
Love,
Angela

Once Upon A Lifetime Layout with Katherine

Hello BoBunny fans! Katherine here with a new vintage page using Once Upon a Lifetime, complete with a bit of inkiness and stenciling.

I used the Fanciful Stencil and some white gesso to create my base on the brick wall paper called Tradition, and then added some green,orange and brown watercolours over the top.  I then added some stamping in brown using the Take Note stamps.  Once I was happy with my background I went to work on the papers and embellishments.  I used a mix of papers from the 6" paper pad, and also created some corners for my photo from the corners of the Congratulations card die set.


Here you can see the layers of gesso and then watercolour with a little bit of the brown stamping to add to the distressed look and pull out the colours in the papers.


I layered up the rose from the Natural Earth Dahlia collection, teaming it with some laser cut chipboard and also one of the beautiful glittered chipboard pieces.  I created leaves for my rose from the clover Zinnia collection


My title is from one of the stickers and I layered up some lace from the Natural Earth collection and teamed it with a jewel swirl in Chocolate.

I hope it's inspired you to dig out some of your vintage photos or even more modern day ones, I am writing notes with mine to keep my family history safely stored.

Early Bird Spring Layout with Marilyn

Hello BoBunny Fans! It's Marilyn here today to share a Spring layout that I created using the new beautiful Early Bird collection.



 Spring is my favorite season. I love the flowers, the colors of the season, and all of the butterflies and birds flying around because they make me smile. The Early Bird collection shows all of this! It was hard to select the papers because I love all them, but I chose this green paper with the handwriting design, to which I gave textures with the stencil and modeling paste.






I cut out the butterflies and flowers from the papers.










These beauties are the granddaughters of a friend and I think the photo goes perfect with this collection.










Once I created the design on my page with the different die cuts pieces, doilies, etc.. I added some jewels swirls and some pearl dots for a feminine touch on my page.








I love giving dimension to my projects so I added adhesive foam dots on the back of the flowers and doilies so I can highlight these elements and give more interest on certain details.



Thanks for stopping by, I hope you find some inspiration.

Until next time!! xx

Marilyn

Early Bird Tea Time Greeting Cards with Ginny

Hello there crafty friends and BoBunny fans! I'm really excited to share my first project with  Early Bird. This collection is full of sweet florals, vintagy images, and loads of cut aparts.  This time of year I really think we need spring inspired collections to ease the transition between seasons. Winter is over thankfully but the Summer holidays are still not quite here yet.

I've created 2 cards with a similar but different look since I had the collection out and all the fun embellishments.

Early Bird_Card 1_Ginny Nemchak_May20_02
I feel like this is going to be my favorite color combination this year. Soft blues and greens look so dreamy when layered up and mixed with florals.

Early Bird_Card _Ginny Nemchak_May20_01
I do have so much fun pulling out the patterns papers and making just the right combinations.
Early Bird_Card 1_Ginny Nemchak_May20_02
Incorporating the Noteworthy elements and stickers means you can layer to your hearts content.
Early Bird_Card 1_Ginny Nemchak_May20_03

Adding a border of coordinating cardstock matting helps to keep the patterns from looking busy.

Early Bird_Card 1_Ginny Nemchak_May20_04
Spacers between the layers adds loads of depth and also gives the cards a nice weighty feel.

Early Bird_Card _Ginny Nemchak_May20_02
These cards are basically the same but with a slightly different base layer, and patterned papers. Might as well make two if you have the collections out right?

Early Bird_Card 2_Ginny Nemchak_May20_01
To add a little different style to this card I turned it on it's side and added 2 bows topped with twine and Double Dot Brads,

Early Bird_Card 2_Ginny Nemchak_May20_02
Don't forget you can add spacers to the backs of the CardStock Stickers too so they will be a dimensional accent.

Early Bird_Card 2_Ginny Nemchak_May20_03
To ensure that more of the beautiful doily cut from crisp white cardstock and the Mandala die was visible I clipped it in half so I could push them to the edges of the card ensuring that they won't be covered by the following layers.

Early Bird_Card _Ginny Nemchak_May20_03
I love to add a little bling to my projects and the Double Dot Jewels are always a perfect match!



Please enjoy this short video tutorial of how I created the Tea Time card.....



I hope you enjoyed viewing these cards as much as I did creating them : ) Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) Ginny

Summer Mood Party Cards with Katherine

Hello everyone, it's Katherine with some really fun cascade cards, perfect for any party.  I've used a mixture of Summer Mood and also the Essential paper collection too.



I used a mixture of the Fly Away and Cupcakes dies, teaming them with Summer Mood and also lots of the colourful essentials papers to make a cascade card, that folds flat for posting but has a really nice dimensional element too.





I drew several circles on the double dot chevron papers choosing rainbow colours, I offset each circle slightly and in the final blue one cut a curve which meant that I could stick the rainbows diagonally across the cards.  I hid the ends of the rainbow in the little pockets that get created by the cascade folds.






Once my rainbows were on I then added lots of clouds and hot air balloons using the Summer Mood papers to add some more colour.  I used the Sentiments stamps for the title.






I love the ease and precision of the die cut pieces, perfectly cut out with tiny bits of intricate detail.






I had lots of fun cutting out cupcakes in various styles and colours, as well as lots of little candles to pack this card with some birthday celebration.  I alternated rows of candles and cakes, and then went back and added more cakes!





I added some sparkle to the top of the cakes with confetti paste and also transferred some of the waste from the cupcake star cake to the swirl cake topping.

I cut out some banners from the Beat the Heat paper and strung them across above my sentiment to create a colourful and packed birthday card that will hopefully brighten someone's day.
