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.
Happy Friday y’all!
