Bunny Love

Here we go. I finally got to my card today, using that Inkadinkado bunny stamp I colored with Copics yesterday. I decided to try this paper-piecing technique -- it sort of ends up looking like a crazy quilt, which I love. Wide swaths of color which really pop against the chocolate cardstock. To add to the quilting effect, I did some faux stitching with a white gel pen.


I wanted the bunny in the bottom right corner, so that the patterned paper pieces would radiate out from him, sort of radiating the love that's growing in his little pot there. That left the top right corner looking really empty. There wasn't room to add a bow anywhere, but I thought maybe a ribbon tab would work. I liked the way that looked, but it was still missing something, so I added a little green button to anchor it down.


And that was it. Easy peasy! (I say that as if it didn't take me more than an hour to do -- much of it just figuring out the placement of things.) How are you all doing today? I can't believe that I'm not one bit closer to being ready for Easter! Goodness, it's only like three days away and I don't have a thing for easter baskets or eggs or anything. I'm usually much more on top of things, but somehow it's just gotten away from me this year.

Do you have any special Easter traditions in your family?

  2. I love this! The quilt effect is great. I love how it isn't all symmetrical. I think I might have to try this.

  5. This turned out perfect! Love the paper piecing of the background and using the white gel pen for "stitches" is a great idea. Might save me a few minutes spent at the machine next time. :)

  6. Often times, womens vests have pockets and can be pulled over any
    kind of outfit. Though these sweaters are a bit pricey they are also well made with quality craftsmanship and will last a lifetime.
    Company logos can boost name recognition among customers in automotive
    repair facilities, department stores, supermarkets and
    other casual commercial venues.
