Hello everyone! Maria here with you today and I am super excited to share my very first post as a member of the CAS-ual Fridays Ink Squad. It is definitely a dream come true for me! I have always admired the talented girls on the Ink Squad and when I received the good news that I made it on the team, I was happy and terrified at the same time! I hope I will be able to inspire you in this amazing journey and get creative with me.
For today's project, I am showcasing the SomeBunny stamp set with the Bunny Fri-Dies, and the Best Day Fri-Dies.
I started out by die-cutting the two bunnies on some Neenah Solar White Card Stock. I placed the die-cuts back on the negative piece and lined-up my images, and held it in place with low-tack tape. I used my stamping tool to stamp the images using Memento Tuxedo black ink. I colored the images in with my Copic markers.
For my first project, I wanted to make a birthday card using the adorable Bunny holding a balloon. I cut another piece of some white card stock and stamped the little stars using some light gray ink. I wanted the stars on my background to look like watermark so that these images wouldn't overwhelm the whole card design. I also die-cut the "Best Day Ever" using the dies and adhered these pieces onto my card panel with my Nuvo Liquid adhesive.
To finish my design, I adhered my little bunny with some foam tape, and added Glossy Accents to the balloon. Here is my first card:
I love the simplicity of this birthday card. Here's another look:
I really love the white-on-white background and the glossy accents on the balloon just gave it a little something extra!
For my second card, I did the same technique by stamping the little stars on my card panel with the same light gray ink. I die-cut another piece of some white card stock to create the frame for my cute little bunny. I stamped the sentiment onto the frame, and adhered this piece on my background panel with some foam adhesive.
To finish my design, I stamped 3 little stars next to the bunny with some light blue ink and added Stardust Stickles to the moon. Here is my second card:
I am in-love with this stamp set.
The stardust stickles added a little touch of whimsy to the design.
