Hello Spring from Some Bunny

hello spring

Spring keeps trying to creep into our days here in the Midwest, and my latest Mojo Monday card reflects those feelings. From the cute little bunny and fresh colored paper, everything about this card screams “Hello Spring.”

mojo486While I wasn’t crazy about this week’s Mojo Monday sketch, I decided to play along because I had just created the bunny holding an umbrella stamp with my newest Stampendous set from Hobby Lobby. I love this cute little stamp set that lets me mix and match various animals, clothes and accessories. It’s super cute! Anyway, the bunny was the perfect size for this card and the rest just fell in place.

All the decorative paper is from The Family Ties 6×6 paper stack from Pebbles, which was 40 percent off at JoAnn’s this week. Score! I inked all the edges and added some Glimmer Mist to the background for some interest. With the addition of a heart brad and a touch of Stickles on the bunny nose and frog eyes, my card was complete.

      Thank you, Samantha. I’m glad to hear that I’m not the only one who struggled with the sketch. You might check your local Hobby Lobby store for the stamp. It also comes with a chick, sheep, bear, cat, dog and panda option all in the same set. I can’t wait to play around with it even more!

    What color do you normally use to ink your edges? And is there one brand you like better than another?

      I usually use a dark brown to ink my edges, but I also switch it up depending on the paper colors. For this card I used Quick Quotes powder puff chalking ink in the Coal Miner color. I like the subtle shade and it’s close to black but not so stark. I really don’t have a favorite brand, but something with a pointed edge is great for getting into tight spots. Hope this helps!
