Bunny with Daffodils

We want to know your favourite dies or stencils today at As You Like It Challenge.  I really love my stitched dies because of the texture and interest, and in particular the circles. These XXL dies from Crealies are fabulous because they're such a great size (and this isn't even the largest in the set).

Honeybears

The stuffies are my favourite characters from Stamping Bella and these honeybears are still one of my most treasured stamps from the range. I've teamed them with a sentiment from another Stamping Bella stamp to create a 'just because' card.

  • Fur: Scattered Straw, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs 
  • Grass: Shabby Shutters, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss
  • Beehive: Tea Dye, Vintage Photo
  • Branch:  Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain

Spring Bunny (with added bees)

The new challenge at As You Like It Challenge is layers (one or many), and I admit that I struggled with this theme a bit.  It seems that even my most clean and simple cards aren't just one layer, but nor do I layer up papers on my most embellished cards either.  

Since I decided against a single layer card, my only other option was to go for a fully loaded creation, which has plenty of layers of non-paper items in my 'go-to' layout.  

I even added an extra layer of ribbon by popping some organza underneath the satin and a double layered bow! 

I've used one of the new bunnies (released Tuesday) from Lili of the Valley.  I used the digi version and he's been printed very pale before being watercoloured with my trusty DI reinkers.  Finally I've added a couple of dinky buzzy bees from a clear stamp set, because I felt like bunny needed to be 'looking' at something.


Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:
  • Bunny: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Hickory Smoke
  • Grass: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss
  • Sky: Tumbled Glass
  • Flowers: Wilted Violet, Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry, Wild Honey

Birthday Tags

I might need to lie down after sharing this card because there's no colouring in sight, only a stamped sentiment and some dinky little die cut tags.  The pretty papers are from Nitwits.

Bestest Friends

This little Lee Holland squirrel is an image that I've had for quite a while, but he's disappeared from the shop. However, I am hoping he might be making a return so I'm sharing him with you. This card was made for a special friend, but it's safe to show now.  I added some matching springtime papers and some sparkly little embellishments that I've also been saving for a special occasion!  I hope you like him.
