Bunnies and More Butterflies

Hello and welcome!

It's Saturday already and that means it's time for my weekly Allsorts challenge card. It's Lorraine's turn to host and she picked the theme of "In the Garden". As always we have a fabulous prize to give away, in fact there are two prizes this time - Card-io Winter Walks and Oriental Whispers stamp sets from First Stop Stationers.  Hope you will join us for a chance to win!

And here is what I made:


The stamp is Penny Black's Bunny Friends. This is a wood mounted stamp that actually includes 5 bunnies in flower pots but I only used two of the 5 on today's card. Stamped with Versafine Onyx ink and colored with Zig Clean Color brush pens and a Zig Detailer watercolor brush. I fussy cut the two bunnies after coloring. 

The grass on the background was done with a Penny Black stamp from the clear set Enjoy Life.




The butterflies were done with my newest die set, Penny Black's Soaring. I've used in already on last week's card and I am sure I will be using it again soon! I just love these butterflies! 

Sentiment is an oldie from Stampin Up's set The Gifts of Spring. Before adhering the card front to the base I inked the edges using Tumbled Glass Distress ink and  I used my SU paper piercing tool kit along the edges. Sticky back pearls were added to the butterflies and a couple tiny flowers made with an old Martha Stewart punch to the flower pots. 


The sketch was inspired by a recent MFT sketch challenge but it's not a current one so won't enter there. 

Below are some of the products I used today as found on Amazon. These and some of the links above are affiliate links, meaning I may earn a small commission if you purchase through the links, as always this is at no additional cost to you. 

Thanks so much for visiting! Hope to see you at the challenge blog! 

Below are this week's prizes. To enter for a chance to win simply make a card or any other crafty project following our theme and link it up at the challenge blog. You have until Friday to play along and as always you may enter up to 3 different creations. Good luck and happy stamping!

  9. I love those little bunnies poking out of the flower pots. My husband was startled when a baby bunny hopped right out of the garden he was working on last year!!

    Those butterflies are really pretty. The pearls add such a nice touch. Thanks for sharing your Spring project with us at Cut it Up!
