Easter Bunny Punch Art

Happy Easter my stamper friends. I hope you are able to enjoy your quarantined Easter. Today I’m sharing this adorable punch art bunny that I made at a demonstrator event in Boise a few months ago.

Stampin' Up! Punch Art bunny on acetate box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This cute bunny basket is made using Stampin’ Up! cardstock, punches, ink and our clear tiny treat boxes (2″ x 2″ cube). The base shape and ears are punched from Smoky Slate CS using the scallop heart punch and sponged with Smoky Slate ink. For the ears, I used Blushing Bride CS to punch out a heart, sponged the edges with Blushing Bride ink and attached this to one of the scalloped hearts. These two hearts for the ears were then cut down the middle.

The base of the punch art face is one of the scalloped hearts upside down with the two halves of the hearts with the pink inside adhered to the top. The second half of the heart (for the ears) is flipped upside down and attached to the other half and a little bit was snipped off. (This view is from from behind – I hope then this makes sense).

The cheeks are a 1-1/8″ scallop circle punched out of Smoky Slate with Smoky Slate ink. The recently retired heart punch (from the Every Season Punch Pack) and Blushing Bride CS sponged with Blushing Bride ink make this adorable nose and his tongue. The eyes were made using 1/2″ and 1/4″ circle punches with a white chalk marker used to highlight them. The bunny face and a 1/2″ x 8″ strip (for the handle) were attached to the tiny treat box. A little bit of paper Easter grass completes the look.

Welcome Easter Critters

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! While the COVID 19 pandemic is adding stress to our lives, we Pals hope this blog hop will help to lift your spirits. Let us inspire you to take a creative break and relax for a little while. This month our theme is “Special Occasions” where we have made a project for just about any occasion you can think of! You’ll find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Welcome Easter Happy Easter handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This cute card starts with a Petal Pink card base, followed by a layer of Pool Party CS and then a layer of So Saffron CS. I stamped the flowers onto the So Saffron layer using So Saffron ink. Before adhering the So Saffron layer, I punched 3 1-1/2″ holes for the critters from the Welcome Easter stamp set to pop out of.

The Welcome Easter critters were stamped on to Whisper White CS and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.  I then cut them out using my Brother Scan n Cut machine and inserted one in each hole of the So Saffron layer. The So Saffron layer was then added to the card front.  For the sentiment, I stamped Happy Easter (from the Welcome Easter stamp set) in Tuxedo black ink onto a strip of Whisper White CS. The end was flagged using the Banner Triple Punch, sponged Pool Party ink on the edges, wrapped baker’s twine on the end and then adhered to card front using stampin’ dimensionals.

Inside the card, I continued with the Welcome Easter stamp set and stamped the sentiment, the bees and the chick in Tuxedo Black ink.  I then colored the bees and the chick with Stampin’ Blends. Those little critters are just too cute!

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for Wednesday, May 13th, when we will say “Goodbye to January Mini and 2019 Annual Catalog and/or Hello to 2020 Annual Catalog.” The Design Team will showcase their favorites from the retiring catalogs or new products from the new catalog.

Fable Friends Easter Greetings

Hi Stampers.  Have you seen the Stampin’ Up! Fable Friends stamp set?  It reminds me so much of the Beatrix Potter books I read as a kid.  Did you know that The Tail of Peter Rabbit was first printed in 1902. Now THERE is a fable that stood the test of time!  While Beatrix Potter passed away in 1943, her story has had such an impact that there was a movie made in 2018 with a $50 million dollar budget.  Box office gross was over $350 million, so that proves it was a good investment!! (Info from Wikipedia).

This card starts with a Petal Pink card base, followed by a layer of Crumb Cake CS and then a layer of Bird Ballad DSP.

Did you notice the adorable scalloped rectangles on this card?  These are the Stitched So Sweetly Dies from the Jan-Jun 2020 Mini Catalog.

The rabbit is colored using the Crumb Cake, Light Night of Navy and Light Petal PinkStampin’ Blends.  A circle punch and a scalloped circle punch frame the Easter Greetings sentiment perfectly. All supplies used in the making of this card can be purchased from my online store 24/7 – see links below.

Easter Blog Hop

Remarkably Creative Blog Tour badge

Hi Stampers.  Are you ready for Easter?  It’s coming up FAST!  Today’s blog hop should give you some ideas of creative Easter ideas using Stampin’ Up! products.  I hope you can find inspiration here.

In looking for a stamp set to make an Easter card this year, I found that I did not have a current Easter set from Stampin’ Up!  Therefore, it was time to improvise!  I had seen on Pinterest that someone (of course now I can’t find it) had used the Sweet Little Something stamp set mixed with the Picnic With You Bundle to create a bunny in an Easter basket.  So, I decided to give it a try.

Stampin' Up! Somebunny Loves You and Picnic With You handmade Easter card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My card starts with a Soft Sky card base 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.  I then sponged some clouds in Soft Sky ink onto a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Whisper White.  For another card I had used the grass die from the Picnic Basket Builder Framelit Dies to cut grass out of Garden Green CS.  It occurred to me that if I turned the leftover piece  upside down, it still looked like grass. I adhered the grass to the Whisper White layer and trimmed off the excess and adhered it to the card front.

The basket was stamped onto Whisper White CS with Soft Suede ink and die cut with the coordinating die on the Big Shot.  I used the Layering Ovals framelit dies to cut an oval out of Soft Suede CS and then used a smaller oval from the same set to cut a smaller oval out of the middle of the first one.  I matched the ovals to the picnic basket and attached it with Mini Glue Dots and cut off the bottom part of the oval, making this the handle to the basket.  The bunny was stamped using Crumb Cake ink for all 3 layers and cut it out with my paper snips.  I adhered the bunny to the basket and then the bunny in the basket was glued to the card front.

On the inside of the card I used a 4″ x 5 1/2″ layer of Whisper White CS.  The sentiment and flowers (from the bunny set) were stamped in Memento Black ink.  The “barrel of apples” (from the picnic set) was stamped in Soft Suede ink in the lower left corner.  I use a Soft Suede marker to color in the stems of the apples to make them disappear. You can use the Stampin’ Blends (or the Stampin’ Write Markers) to color in the apples to look like Easter eggs.  The flower petals were then colored with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend marker. The butterfly stamp (from the picnic set) was inked with Stampin’ Write makers and stamped in the upper right corner. There you have it – an Easter card. 🙂

This card is one of three designs that I will be featuring in my Easter Card Class in Twin Falls, ID on Thursday, March 22nd.  This class is also offered as a Class To Go.  For the Class To Go, I send you the cardstock all pre-cut and ready to go, along with PDF instructions. Ready for you to stamp and assemble with your own stamps and ink.  Anything you may need to finish these cards can be purchased in my online store. 🙂

There are many more project on the hop for you to enjoy, just follow along using the list below.

Retiring 2015-2017 In Colors Blog Hop

The-Remarkable-Inkbig-Blog-HopHi Stampers.

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for April 2017. This month our theme is “Retiring 2015-2017 In Colors”.  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Queen B Creations or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

I have to admit that the Stampin’ Up! 2015-2017 in-colors were not my favorite, but I will miss Tip Top Taupe and Mint Macaron, so I used those colors for the card stock in my Easter card.  Can you believe that Easter is less than a week away???

I’m most excited about that because my hubby and I with be in the southern Caribbean on a cruise for Easter!!  We are going to the ABC Islands – Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao on Royal Caribbean Navigator of the Seas!!  Ten days of heaven, I can’t wait!!

Stampin' Up! Easter Bunny in a basket card using Basket Bunch and retiring 2015-2017 in colors Remarkable Inkbig blog hop My card base is Mint Macaron, 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25.  I followed that with a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Tip Top Taupe and then a 5″ x 3.75″ layer of Whisper White card stock.  On the Whisper White layer I stamped the carrot from the Stampin’ Up! Basket Bunch stamp set in Cucumber Crush ink and colored in with a Pumpkin Pie marker.

Stampin' Up! Easter Bunny in a basket card using Basket Bunch and retiring 2015-2017 in colors Remarkable Inkbig blog hopFor my focal point I used the layering Ovals framelit dies.  The scalloped circle is cut from Mint Macaron card stock and the plain circle in Whisper White.  I die cut the basket in Tip Top Taupe for both layers.  I used the foam strips to adhere the two basket layers together.  I them cut the grass in Garden Green and stamped the bunny onto Whisper White card stock with Memento Black ink and cut it out with the matching framelit from the Stampin’ Up! Basket Builder framelit dies.  I colored the inside of his ears with Pink Pirouette and the bow tie with Watermelon Wonder markers.  The ovals are adhered to the card with Stampin’ dimensionals and the basket to the ovals with glue dots.

Stampin' Up! Easter Bunny in a basket card using Basket Bunch and retiring 2015-2017 in colors Remarkable Inkbig blog hop

The inside of the card is lined with a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White card stock.  I stamped the grass along the bottom in Cucumber Crush ink and the sentiment in Tip Top Taupe ink.  The eggs were cut from the framelit with Whisteria Wonder, Soft Sky and Pink Pirouette card stock, while the bunny was stamped in Chocolate Chip ink onto Chocolate Chip card stock and cut out with the matching framelit.

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don’t want to miss. Remember that currently you are at my blog – Queen B Creations, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next in the list.
