Magnificent Monday Guest: Barb Wetmore!
Thank you to the Pink Paper Bakers for inviting me to post on their blog! I have a daughter in college who is working in Florida this semester and with Easter being around the corner, I wanted to send her an Easter card. Alas, I had no Easter stamps (lots of Christmas and Halloween stamps, but no Easter!). Fortunately, geometry came to my rescue and I was able to make a bunny out of circles, a collection of Easter eggs out of ovals, and a cute little bunny tail out of the recently released Flower Trim, from the Spring Mini catalog.
The bunny's ears were also constructed from a circle punch. I punched a 2 1/2" circle out of Very Vanilla card stock; then reinserted the punched circle into the circle punch, and punched only a portion of it.
I sponged the edges of the bunny in Crumb Cake, and gave his tail a little sponging too! I embellished the eggs with an embossing folder and Tea for Two Designer Series Paper and sponged their edges in Crumb Cake as well.
- Lucky Lime Aid: Card base
- Pretty in Pink: 4" x 5 1/4"
- Very Vanilla
- Tea for Two Designer Series Paper
- Ink: Crumb Cake
- Tools and accessories:
- Dimensionals (under the bunny's body and under the Pretty in Pink embossed layer)
- 2 1/2"circle punch for bunny's body and ears
- 1 3/4" circle punch for bunny's head
- Large oval punch for eggs
- Flower Trim for bunny's tail
- Vine Street embossing folder
- Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder (for eggs)
Warm regards from a slow-to-get-started-but-now-totally-hooked stamper,
Thanks for sharing with us, Barb!
