Sweet Baby Bunny


Oh my Arthur is just adorable!!! I didn't want to give him back - he was just SO cuddly and snuggly. Once I've edited some photos, I'll have to share what I've been busy sewing for him! I think you'll like it!

Its a beautiful sunny day today - Happy Spring! Are you doing anything nice today? Afraid its just housework and a quiet day for me. But I am going out tonight for a hen party, which will be fun.

Today I have another challenge, this time its Freshly Made sketch. This is a seriously simple sketch and for once I had a pretty clear idea what I wanted to do. Following the theme of babies I wanted to use a set I've borrowed from my downline called Baby, We've Grown. I have to admit now, I was not entirely sure what I think to it - the owls are just a bit odd. But seeing as I'm borrowing it I thought it'd be the perfect opportunity to have a play and probably find that I actually love the set. 

After making this card, I have to say, it has grown on me, having the set physically in front of me I've started thinking of lots of other cute ideas I'd like to do. This is one of those sets that just doesn't do it for me in the catty but get it in-front of me for a play and I realise how lovely it really is. Anyway, on to the sketch and card...

Stamp Set: Baby We've Grown
Ink: Black Stazon, Pistachio Pudding, Crushed Curry
Cardstock: Pistachio Pudding, Very Vanilla, Crushed Curry
Punch: 1 3/4" Scallop Circle, 1 3/8" Circle

Isn't this bunny just ADORABLE!? I love bunnies and this one is just such a cutie! 

I was determined to keep this card clean and simple like the sketch. The only other thing I was sure if was that the bunny HAD to be Pistachio Pudding, not sure why but it was just screaming out pistachio! I thought I'd use vanilla with the pistachio as I haven't used it much of late. From those two colours I needed a vibrant colour that would add some pop to the project - doesn't the Crushed Curry work well?!

I used the bone folder to break down the scallop cardstock until it split to make it softer and have more of a frilly texture. I used a blender pen to colour in the bunny and the sentiment too! 

I did take a bit of time on this card to carefully cut out the bunny (added dimentionals to the back for some height) and also cut the little zig zags out from the sentiment too. 

Hope you enjoyed this card. 

Happy Stampin',


  1. Very cute Amanda, I've pinned your card. The owls freak me out just a bit too - they look angry with their little one!

    1. Thank you Rachel! Yes they have very aggressive looking eyebrows! Glad I'm not the only one with issues with this set! x

  2. The bunny is indeed adorable, and you've colored it so well. Wonderful card!

  3. Simply adorable! I love how you have colored this fellow (and the Pistachio really is perfect). Your use of white space is awesome. Glad you joined us this week at FMS!

  4. What a gorgeous, clean card! You're right -- that bunny is perfect in pistachio. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
