My Pet - Bunny Hop Post 5

Hello.  Welcome.  I'm back!!  Older, wiser??!  Full of cake!!  I'd like to thank everyone who celebrated with me, has sent cards, or birthday wishes.  You all rock.  And there is still time to join my Bunny Hop celebration where you make a card and I give out prizes.  You gotta be in it to win it and there is still almost a week for you to get that bunny/rabbit/hare card made, photo'ed and linked up.  Still here??  Oh yeah, bunnies.........

I've made a twofer, cos the delightful Darnell has Pets as her Twofer challenge theme this month and there are still hours to join the fun.  I made a xmas and a thanks card using this really cute Crafty Individuals Hare Amongst the Trees.  And I have an extra one of these stamps that I bought and I will be giving away to one lucky bunny hopper!!

And Darnell also wants to see the pet that inspired the cards so here's some bunnies and me!

For my first card I used Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder and my big shot to emboss some dark blue card.  I used a gold ink pad to highlight the texture.  I stamped Hare Amongst the Trees on pale blue card using dark blue dye ink.  I cut with Stamplorations Crazy Double Stitch die and mounted it on a gold layer.  I cut the Stamplorations sentiment from the same gold card

This card is also joining the fun at

For my second card I followed the Paperbabes sketch.  I stamped Hare Amongst the Trees using black archival on white card.  I cut the image into sections and edged each piece with Mustard Seed distress ink.  Then I mounted them on a scrap of yellow card that I smudged with the Mustard Seed ink.  I rounded the corners of my card base using some fancy scissors and edged it with the same ink.  I used another Mustard Seed smudged scrap and cut with Winnie and Walters Thanks die.

This card is joining the fun at

This is the stamp I will be giving to one happy hopper, and I also have a couple of small sentiment/image stamps from Crafty Individuals that I will also be slipping in this package.  Check the previous Bunny Hop posts for details of the other prizes.

Thanks for dropping by.  Link up your bunny makes for a chance to win.  Hugz


  1. I knew what pet you would choose if you played, Gail! I love that photo of you with the bunnies! And I love the bunny image you chose to use for your Twofer designs! They are both amazing! Bunny looks beautiful in that rich blue and shiny gold on the Christmas card and I love how you cleverly altered the image for your Thank You card!! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #4! Hugs, Darnell

  2. I wouldn't have thought it possible to use such a big, collage-type stamp and make two very different cards with it but you totally rocked it! It looks fabulous as a whole on the Christmas card and equally fabulous but very different cut up on the thank you card! Two awesome designs!
    Thanks for joining us at the Twofer!

  3. Two fantastic designs using the same sweet bunny image. Love the bright blue of your snowy, embossed background with gold on top. Very elegant with the addition of a shiny frame and sentiment too. And your thanks card is so sweet. Mustard seed with black and white is really beautiful. Thanks for playing along with us at Twofer Card Challenge!

  4. Gorgeous cards, I love bunnies, but I als have a fondeness for Hares. I have never seen one in the wild yet .xx

  5. Great cards Gail love those colours. The mustard seed edge really makes those stamped Black and white tiles pop. Thank you for sharing over at Paperbabe Stamps and joining in with the Sketch challenge.

  8. Really cool stamp and really cool card! Very creative use of the stamp to make two cards! I'm enjoying all the bunny inspiration here - I would like to make a couple more funny cards for you!

  9. What a lovely pair of cards Gail and I love how you created a fun Christmas card with this image. Love the picture of you with the bunnies!
