Today’s prompt for the Scrap ‘N Stamp daily challenge is ‘animals’, so I’m here to share some cute critters with you! I pulled out an older stamp & dies combo from MFT called Beach Bunnies, and combined it with the recent Picket Fence Studios Slimline Die Cutting System.
BEACH BUNNIES PEEK-A-BOO
It was fun to give these bunnies their own personalities and fur colour!
The fun part is that you can choose any colour, for any part of this card, to use! I went with blue for my cardstock, for a ‘blue sky’ kind of background.
Create your card base of 7″ x 8 1/2″. Score and fold in half at 3 1/2″, and set aside. Next, use the PFS Slimline Die Cutting System to die cut the top layer, and each circle. I like the added touch of the stitching around the circle dies. Next, use the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border die to die cut 2 strips of grass, from a mid-green cardstock.
Stamp the bunnies, birds and heart in Nocturne ink onto white cardstock. Use your favourite markers to colour the images; I used a combination of Copic and Spectrum Noir, from my stash. Now, use the coordinating Beach Bunnies dies & die cut each image. Add some interest to the die cut grass by blending on some Mowed Lawn distress ink, with a blending tool.
Now, add 2 layers of the grass to the bottom of each circle, using glue or double sided tape. Next, add this layer to the card base, using foam tape or squares. Add foam tape or squares to the back of the die cut images, and then place the bunnies inside each circle. Allowing the bunnies to be partially outside of the circles adds more dimension. Finally, add the birds, heart and a few of the Brutus Monroe Acrylic Bubbles to the front.
I decided to add a die cut sentiment to the front. Use your Big Shot with the MFT Sweet Hello die, and the Memory Box bright yellow glitter paper. This glitter paper is very stiff & sturdy, so you don’t have to layer it. Attach it with glue to the card front, and you’re done!
