Hello Spring! - A Handmade Card Duo featuring BoBunny Clear Stamps and Double Dot Designs with Angela

Hello Friends! It's Angela here today to welcome you to the BoBunny blog.

It's finally springtime, and the daylight is slowly becoming longer.  Here in Italy, the weather in my town is getting a bit warmer. Yeah!!

To worthily welcome spring, I created a couple of cards, using the BoBunny Floral Stamp set, but utilizing two different techniques.


For both cards, I started mounting all the flowers and the leaves of the stamp set on my Stamp Block, so that I could stamp them all in ones. For stamping, I used watercolor paper and then I heat-embossed with white embossing powder. Last, I colored each flower and leaf using watercolor pen brushes.

Then, with a bit of patience, I fussy cut all the pieces. It's worth the time for me to cut the pieces, because the end result is always beautiful.


The first card, the pink one, has a romantic style and a more clean look. It is created on a white square cardstock and mounted on a pink card.

All the flowers are mounted on a gold wire wreath that I made simply rolling the wire in a circle.


The sentiment Happy Spring is stamped and heat-embossed on a punched circle of vellum and stuck with a couple of glue dots in the center of the wreath.
A few other details like a tied ribbon and some dots and voilĂ , the card is finished.


The second card, the light blue one, has a mottled, watercolor look because I went for a mixed-media background.


I prepared the surface with white gesso, I colored it with the packaging technique, then I stenciled with structure paste.
For the rest, the method I used to make it is always the same, with the gold wire wreath in the center of the card and the flowers glued to the top of it.


This time the flowers are gathered on one side of the wreath and the sentiment is heat-embossed in black. As a finishing touch, I added a few drops of gold mist here and there.


I hope you like these two similar but different kind of card and I would be curious to know which one you prefer and why.

Thanks for stopping by and see you next time.

Stay Awhile! 12 x12 "Paper Patchwork" Layout with Katherine

Hi All,

Welcome to the blog today.  It's Katherine here and I've made a page using Stay Awhile and some quilt like squares, showing of both sides of the papers, revesing the circles into kind of patchwork pattern.

It is sometimes hard to choose which side of the paper I like best, so this technique works really well for when you want to show both sides.  I cut out lots of 3" circles and then scored the edges and folded them in so the circles became squares and you get to see both sides of the papers!  You can watch what I do in the video below.

To further decorate some of the squares I added some of the intricately cut wooden hearts.

I used the Double Dot Damask paper French Vanilla as the base - it makes a beautiful vintage background.

I layered up some of the stickers for the title area and used the Let There Be Light stamps for the title.

I hope you enjoy the video.

Thanks for popping in today!

Papermade Tea Pot and Teacup Set featuring Stay Awhile with Solange

Hello BoBunny Fans!

How about a Tea Party today?  This isn't your typical sit down for tea, but a fun papercrafting project with a "tea party" theme!  I'll share with you today with some pieces for a tea party using Stay Awhile collection.

The icons and elements in this collection along with the earthy and rich color combination brings to mind an almost tangible  feeling of warmth and coziness.  I thought this would be just right for this idea inviting us to a delicious and comforting "tea party".

First of all, I used my cutting machine to cut out the template on the cardstock:

Then, I  assembled the pieces with everything put together, folding, gluing as I went on.  Once you find a template like this you want to cut on your own cutting machine, it's just a matter of picking the prettiest paper to cover it.

Finally, I covered the cardstock  using patterned papers, using the original template as a pattern to cut the pieces for each section of the teapots.

And to complete, I've created a cup, saucer and spoon:

Dessert Cookbook Dividers - Featuring Double Dot Damask and Stay Awhile with Elena

Hello BoBunny Fans,

I used to cook a lot in the past, but now I prefer to create more than spending this time at the kitchen. However I always like making cookbook dividers and recipe notes for my friends, so I get to combine my hobbies!

Today, since I have a go-to Desserts Recipe book for all my favorite sweet recipes,  I've added a few dividers to share that I've made for just this purpose.


For my background I used the new Double Dot Damask papers. It was so difficult to choose only one color from the range, but since I wanted to make several dividers , it was a good opportunity to use several at once.


For my embellishments and paper layers I used a lot of fussy cutting from the Stay Awhile papers. There are so many cute houses and flowers there to cut out, and lend itself nicely to the homey feel of the Stay Awhile paper collection.


However for my pages I made die cutting too , and used a few BoBunny dies, this beautiful Mandala Die that I topped with Emoji Die cut - just for a touch of fun.


Also I wanted to add some mixed media, so I primed my background with white gesso, then I applied the Stencil Texture Paste using Starling Stickable Stencil.
and misted with Gold Glimmer Spray and added the splatters  of Frost Glimmer Spray with a brush.


I used the both sides of the Double Dot Damask paper.  As you can see, one side is a classic subtle damask pattern, and the flip side has a medium scale, layered and antiqued dot patteen, so it was fun to mix them.


  I wanted to maintain the desserts theme of my recipe book, so I played mostly with cupcakes and coffee dies. I made a few cupcakes die cuts using Cupcake Dies.



I like the color palette of Stay Awhile collection, it can be used for many occasions, but it really reminds me something cozy and warm, something about the kitchen


After all my dividers have been done, I added the coloring with my brush and the sprays, just to add some accents


I like how it looks on the Double Dot Damask papers


Not only cakes and coffee makes me feel like Sweet Tooth, an ice cream , this what all the kids adore.
I've added the ice cream die cuts that I made using Summer Picnic Dies
