Ear-resistable Bunny Card & Video by Maria Russell

Ear-resistable Bunny Card & Video by Maria Russell | Bitty Bunnies Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Ear-resistable Bunnies!

This adorable card by Maria today will definitely make you say "Awwww"!  She created this sweet little scene with using those cute little bunnies from the new Bitty Bunnies Stamp Set. She colored them in pale gray with pink ears noses and cheeks and trimmed them out with the coordinating Bitty Bunnies Die Set. She did the same with the cute little flowers and butterflies from this set and then she added them onto her card along with a pretty leafy oval die (from another company). Isn't that sunset background so gorgeous too!?

More than Naps Card by February Guest Designer Valliam

Hi there! Happy Monday! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend. I’m back again with my third card for Newton’s Nook. For this card, I used the Newston’s Naptime stamp set. This set is definitely an eye catcher! I’ve fell in love seeing him napping on top of the cozy blankets. He is too cute!
More than Naps Card by February Guest Designer Valliam | Newton's Naptime Stamp Set and die set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade


I wanted him to be the focal point of my card. So I decided to use bright colors on the layers of blanket to make it pop. I stamped and colored the image using distress ink and die cut the image using the coordinating Newton’s Naptime die set. Next, I moved on to making the background. I wanted a contrast background for this card. So, I cut a stitched rectangle panel using Frames & Flags die set and inked it with Mowed Lawn and Wild Honey distress inks. Then, for the cloud I used the Stitched Cloud Border die set and inked it up with Salty Ocean distress ink. I stamped the sentiment on the cloud panel and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

I tried the inlaid die cutting technique to make a window with a little background scene for this card and it turned out great. I made the window frame using scalloped edge and stitched rectangle dies from Frames & Flags die set. Basically the negative part of this will be the frame. I made four frames and glued all of the layers together for added dimension.

I inlaid the background panel to the center of the frame which I made earlier. Since the frame was made of four layers, it give a little depth to background and then I inserted a piece of acetate sheet on top of the frame layers to give the window a glassy look. Unfortunately, I couldn't capture it on my picture. I finished off the card by adhering Newton on the foreground. That’s all for today. I hope you enjoyed my card today.

Thanks for stopping by and see you all again next Monday with my final card for Newton’s Nook. Have a great week! 
Hugs! :)
Valliam
