Bunny Festival + Exclusive Voucher

After the last six days, no one wants to see spring as much as I do, trust me. More on that later. So I HECKING enjoyed making cards this weekend when I had both power and water starting late Sunday, and beautiful little bunnies from a new illustrator from Russia.

This is kind of an unusual release, because along with the adorable bunny-themed stamps and dies, they have a limited time ephemera pack that has some of the images that match the stamps, that just makes me squee a lot! I love ephemera, and use it daily in my art journal. But ephemera that matches stamps? Yeah, baby! It matched the images in this set, but the ephemera images are smaller. 

So for this first card, I used their grungy brick stencil and this gorgeous pale pink Paper Glaze to create a city background for my zoomie little bunny. Then I used one of these OMG THANK GOD THEY SELL PRE-CUT SENTIMENT STRIPS blank sentiment strip and the sentiment from this set for a super duper quick  and fun card. For $3, those strips save me a lot of aggravation! 

Now for the second card - I'll have a video later that will show you how I used the same stencil on the Gel Press to create this grungy background - it's so quick and easy and I'm a wee bit addicted. But the foreground was so fun. I used this stamp and the coordinating dies with cold press watercolor paper and Fadeout Ink. I love that it can be used for St. Patrick's Day, but also for all-year friendship cards. Then I used Daniel Smith watercolor with just five pigments from the Lydia split in my split group to paint the bunny. To create the shadow, I flipped the negative space from where I cut the image out of watercolor paper upside down, and lightly traced it with a pencil. Then I used a Graphit Marker to fill it in before gluing the bunny down. (Coupon code for these in the footer.) The sentiment is from the same set.

Finally - a very simply colored and adorable image - to me, it looked like he was laying in the grass, so I colored it accordingly with Graphit Markers, using the teeny fine point to get in the tight spots, and going around the edge with the brush end to create a subtle frame. So adorable. 

This is such an amazing debut for this illustrator. I love that hardworking artists can find a new home in the craft industry, and I hope she's wildly successful. Most of all, I love that Mary Ann found such a fantastic artist to match her brand. What a win. Just so you know - she's a person who checks on her neighbors - filling up their generators for them if they are unable to. Since literally the only thing we Texans had this week was our neighbors and HEB to count on, I hold that trait very dear. So know that about her when you buy her stamps. It matters.

She also has two really pretty 6x6 paper packs out today and lots more bunny stamps! Very springy!

Also - all orders over $50 will get the limited edition ephemera pack free - no need to add it to your cart, while supplies last! They will also be randomly giving away another $25 voucher to commenters on their blog.
