Gingham Easter Bunny Trio For Less Is More

by Joanne James16. March 2019 08:00

Today I'm sharing a card for the new challenge over at Less Is More where following my success in January over at LIM as their January winner, I have the honour of being guest designer this week.

For the challenge that runs for the next two weeks, the challenge is a recipe challenge and here is the badge:

 

Just Take Three - three images, three colours, three patterns. What fun! Here's my take on the theme:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

Take Three Bunnies - I so enjoyed making this clean and simple bunny card the other day, I decided that the only thing better than one bunny would be three - perfect for the Less Is More challenge theme! At the time of writing the Bunny Builder Punch is still available to order so if the Bunny Builder Punch is on your wish list, and you haven't yet ordered, don't delay and get your order in sooner rather than later. 

Gingham Gala Trio - I also used three different colours of Gingham Gala designer series paper on my card for my punched bunny silhouettes, this time adding white punched tails to keep a cleaner feel. 

Keeping It Simple - Keeping the paper pattern design the same and leaving plenty of white space around my bunnies, adding only a small sentiment to ground them, allows me to maintain a clean and simple feel. A super simple card with only five key material ingredients - a great card for beginners with very little stamping required.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Enjoy your weekend; I am off to watch one of the James Juniors play hockey this afternoon and I'll be back tomorrow with this week's card for our new challenge over at The Paper Players. Until then, happy stampin'!

Bunny Builder Punch Approaching Not Orderable - Get Yours Before It's Too Late!

by Joanne James13. March 2019 20:00

 

Today I'm sharing a card for the current challenge over at Addicted to CAS where they have a great code word currently:

Clouds, puppy dogs, sheep - so many possibilities! For me though there was only one thing that sums up 'fluffy' and that's a bunny's tail - take a look:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

Get Your Bunny Builder Now Whilst You Still Can - I made this card to share with you today, before finding out late yesterday evening that the Bunny Builder Punch is in short supply and about to move to unorderable status at some point in the near future. Unlike two of the Sale-A-Bration Co-ordination items that went the same way within just a few days of ordering and with no notice - the Hop Around Framelits Dies and the Call Me Cupcake Thinlits Dies - we have at least been given a quick heads-up on this one, so if the Bunny Builder Punch is on your wish list, don't delay and get your order in now; it's unclear at this stage whether or not the punch will carry over to the new annual catalogue, so this may be your last chance to snap up this useful little tool, especially with Easter around the corner. 

Gingham Gala - Rather than stamp a bunny, I decided to punch a bunny silhouette out of the Gingham Gala designer series paper. In fresh colours, these papers are perfect for Easter and spring. For me 'fluffy' makes me think of bunny tails, but a punched paper one just wouldn't do - I removed a white pompom from some retired trim and added in to my bunny's bottom - adorable!

Keeping It Simple - A single colour, simple frame and bunny silhouette rather than stamped image keep my card design simple, clean and uncluttered. 

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Best Bunny Spring Easter Card For The Paper Players PP431

by Joanne James3. March 2019 09:00

Today it's Sunday and time for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players! It's the turn of the fabulous Anne-Marie to host this week and she has a fun theme challenge for you to work with:

    

I was in part inspired by yet another fabulous badge created by the lovely Nance for us this week to create a pretty Spring day background for my Easter bunny - take a look:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

Best Bunny - The Best Bunny stamp set is super cute and just perfect for my Easter bunny. I stamped my bunny onto Soft Suede cardstock and paper-pieced his features then layered him on some ovals. I also used the carrot decoration to add a little detail to the inside:

 

Spring Is in The Air - I created my spring background with a touch of brayering using a sponge brayer and Balmy Blue ink. Then I stamped some grass and added a couple of tiny butterflies from the 'Enjoy Life' stamp set. My zingy Lemon-Lime Twist Gingham Gala paper and orange accents add a fresh vibrancy to this fun Easter card.

Easter Wishes From More Than Words - My larger-than-life sentiment comes from the new 'More Than Words' stamp set that is available exclusively during March as part of the Sale-A-Bration co-ordination product launch. A great set with lost of sentiments, that also compliments greetings in a number of first stage Sale-A-Bration release stamp sets.
