Wow - where has the last week gone? I apologize for the lack of posts, but I've been busy with several stamping classes and events and am working hard to get my taxes done. Every year I vow that I won't be a last-minute Lucy and once again I have failed to keep up with it all year long. Well, I'm almost done and it's Fabulous Friday so here we go... this week over on the Sisters In Stamping blog we are featuring Easter cards. I decided to go with punch art since I was in that kind of mood (my Punch Club met earlier this week). I think it turned out pretty close to what I had envisioned... and we all know that isn't always the case!
For the inside of the card I just kept it really simple - the "Happy Easter" sentiment is from the Easter Blossoms stamp set from the Occasions Mini catalog and is stamped using pear pizzazz ink. I punched it out using the 2" x 1-3/8" oval punch, sponged it with crumb cake ink and layered it over a scrap piece of pink pirouette card stock.
Here's what I used for the bunny face - I decided to use my Top Note bigz die with the Big Shot to cut out the card base... I cut the card stock 11" x 4-1/4" and put the fold of the card just below the perforation at the top of the Top Note die so that the fold would not get cut. The rest of the bunny parts are all punches as follows - they were all sponged with crumb cake ink before being adhered together:
ears - 2" x 1-3/8" oval punch (very vanilla)
1-3/4" x 7/8" oval punch (very vanilla and pink pirouette)
eyes - 1-1/4" circle punch (whisper white)
1" circle punch (chocolate chip)
nose - small heart punch (pink pirouette)
1-3/4" circle punch (very vanilla)
