My new favorite set!

When I saw this card by my good friend Kyla (check out her blog...she does AWESOME work!) I just loved it - so much so that I asked to use it for my monthly newsletter! And it was her Chocolate Bunny card that inspired this card. Although, I think I have to remake the card stamping on Close to Cocoa, since it's really hard to see the brown ink on the chocolate chip!!

I used the WONDERFUL new Petals & Paisleys paper from the spring mini along with some Certainly Celery, Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip, and Whisper White cardstocks. The bunny is stamped with Basic Brown, then cut out. His ears, nose and large eyes are done with the white gel pen, and then I went over his ears and nose with the Pretty in Pink marker. His tail is made puffy with liquid applique. I printed the sentiment from the computer using SU! Little Lamb font. I also used my coluzzle (need to get another size that will fit my scallop punches better!) giga scallop punch and some grosgrain to finish it off.

And now, can I just tell you how incredibly awesome the new Polka Dots & Paisleys designer paper is?? You just can't see how amazing it is in the catalog - they have not done it justice!! I am so in love. Need to figure out how many packages I"m going to have to order of this because I can see going through it at a very fast pace indeed!!!

Tomorrow I'll post the 2nd card created with this new set...another "Funny Bunny" card!



  1. How adorable is that chocolate bunny! How funny and clever! I see by your profile that you lived in the Bay Area...what town? I grew up in the Bay Area...although I have been gone for quite a while...I still call California home. :)

  2. Hi Jana! I love this set with that sentiment! Too cute! Also, the above card's sentiment "I hope you dance", I have been planning to use that for my new Bellarina stamp! Great minds think alike, huh!? :)

  3. My little bunny arrives this week! After seeing Kyla's cards I had to get this set too! Love the chocoloate bunny and I agree Close to Cocoa might be easier or what if you stamped onto the chocolate CS with White or Vanilla craft and embossed with white or vanilla EP????

  4. ohhhh that is tooooooooo cute!!! Hmmmm, dare I add another set to my wish



I love reading your comments, thanks for leaving me some love!
