Some bunny loves you shaker card featuring Mint Owl Studio

Hey guys!  I’m here with a shaker card today featuring the Some Bunny stamp set from Mint Owl studio.  You will find my card on the Mint Owl Studio blog as well!

ahsang MOS bunny love 1

First, I stamped the hugging bunnies and tiny bow from the MOS Some Bunny stamp set with Memento tuxedo black ink on some cardstock.  I colored my images with copic markers.  I used both warm and cool gray makers, with a little hint of pink.  Then, I fussy cut them out.  I glued the bow to the Mama bunny, and added glossy accents on top.  I set aside to dry.

Meanwhile, I inked up my card base (just in the middle) with some Tim Holtz scattered straw distress ink, creating a moon.  On a separate piece of watercolor paper, I die cut a rectangle using Simon Say’s Stamps stitched rectangle die.  I also partially die cut a circle using a Mama Elephant die.  (My first try at partial die cutting!)  Then I hand cut 2 pieces of sticky notes into a hill to act as a template to cut the rest of the partial die cut circle, and then as a mask for my background.  With my mask in place, I stamped a starry sky using stars from the MOS I Moose You stamp set, Versamark ink, and heat embossed using Ranger’s silver embossing powder.  On top, I used my Tim Holtz distress inks in blueprint sketch and chipped sapphire to ink blend a night sky.  I gave the sky a quick spritz with my water bottle, and then pat with a paper towel to get the ink to react with the water leaving bleached spots.  I took the other side of the sticky notes that I had cut to then mask off the sky (once dry) to ink blend my green hill, and heat emboss a sentiment.  I used the “some bunny loves you” sentiment and heat set using the same ink and silver embossing powder.  Then, I used Tim Holtz distress inks in lucky clover and mowed lawn right on top.

I glued on a piece of acetate to the back of my sky/hill panel over the partially die cut circle.  I added a double layer of foam tape, making sure there was no gaps around the circle.  For my sequin mix, I used MOS’s snowflake sequin mix and some Martha Stewart tiny stars.  I placed those sequins over the yellow ink blended area on the card base, keeping the sequins piled up in the middle.  I carefully placed my sky/hill panel on top, keeping an eye on both the spacing and the sequins.  To finish my shaker card, I added the bunnies on top with glue dots.

Mint Owl Studio bunny love

Hi Crafty friends!

I’ve got a cute bunny card featuring Mint Owl Studio’s Some Bunny and Happy Mail stamp sets.  You can see my card on the Mint Owl Studio blog today as well!

ahsang MOS bunny heart 1

For my background, I stamped the heart from the MOS Happy Mail stamp set multiple times with Versamark ink onto some watercolor paper, and heat set using clear embossing powder.  Then I watercolored over the top using Tim Holtz distress inks.

I stamped the bunny heart image from the MOS Some Bunny stamp set onto some bristol paper using Memento tuxedo black ink.  I colored my bunny with cool gray copic markers:  C00, C1, C3, and a little pink R20.  I colored the heart with red copic markers:  R24, R29, R39.  I fussy cut the image out, and mounted the bunny to a circle I had die cut out of bristol paper with foam tape.

I stamped my sentiment from the MOS Some Bunny stamp set onto a piece of black card stock, and heat set using white embossing powder.  I cut it out creating a fishtail/ribbon detail at one end.

To put my card together, I adhered the water color background.  Then I added a piece of black and white washi to ground the image.  I added the white die cut circle with the bunny image, then the sentiment.  To finish off my card, I added clear sequins and some wink of stella glitter marker on top of the red heart.

I wanted to coordinate the envelope, so I used the heart stamp and the MOS You’ve Got Mail stamp from the Happy Mail stamp set with Memento tuxedo black ink.

That’s it for me friends!  I love how bright and colorful my card came out…doesn’t the bunny look so happy?!

Happy Friday!

cards for the Lasting Hearts Card Drive

Hello friends!  Today I’m sharing a few cards I made for the Lasting Hearts Card Drive.

ahsang LHCD 1

The Lasting Hearts Card Drive is trying to provide comfort to mothers “who have lost a piece of their heart.”  I am hoping my cards will bring comfort to a mother who has just lost a baby.  Miscarriage.

I have to admit that when I read about this card drive on Jennifer McGuire’s blog post, it struck a particular part of my heart.  Not many people know this, but I know what it is to loose a piece of your heart…in fact, I have lost a piece of my heart twice in the last few years.  I know what it feels like to have silence fill the room where a heart beat should be.  I know what it feels like to cry so hard, so much and so long that there are no more tears left.  I am very thankful for the 2 blessings that are our girls, and can only leave the rest up to God.

You can send in cards for this card drive too, or you can make a monetary donation.  All the information is in the above linked post on Jennifer McGuire’s blog.

Here are more close up pictures of each card and some product details (I will provide links where I can):
