Cork Bunny and Easter Canvas

Sunday, February 25, 2018


Good evening or Good morning?

It's really really late.  I've been trying to have a crafty weekend.  The Hubs is working for Hospice all weekend and so the furry babies and I have the house to ourselves.  You know when you think you're making progress, but then you look at the clock and then the list you made and realize, nope, not so much!  hahaha 

That's why I'm up so late doing a post I forgot to finish earlier.  Yet, now I do have more company because the Hubs is also home, awake and finishing up some charting.  

I made a card earlier for the CAS Mix Up Challenge this month and just never got it finished nor on my blog until now being under the wire before the challenge closes.  <eye roll>


I have a very large swath of thick canvas I bought to do something with and never did, so now I guess I'm using it for cards.  LOL  I cut a piece off then used my Quilted Swirl cover plate die by Lil' Inker Designs to add a little more texture to the canvas.  You can't see it well in the photo unfortunately.  Then I cut a tag out of it using a Poppy Stamps stitched tag die.  I actually cut one out of cardstock adhere the canvas one to so it is sturdier on the card.  I used an old multi-sentiment stamp from Taylored Expressions and inked it up in Catherine Pooler inks, It's a Girl, Shea Butter, Mint To Be and It's a Boy. 

A couple weeks ago I found my bag of bunny dies I had cut last year (after Easter of course) <eye roll> again!  Bonnie Klass, crafty friend and fellow Cary-ite had the stitched bunnies from Lil' Inker Designs and she let me borrow them. My thinking was since she had the dies, I could cut a whole bunch and then when I ran out I'd borrow it again. LOL Boy, did I cut A LOT of bunnies!  Talk about "multiplying like rabbits".  Then, later in the summer, what did I do?....bought the dies!  My hubs is shaking his head right now.  Anyway, in the bag were a couple of bunnies cut out of cork.  So now was the perfect time to use it.  I did use my own die and cut out two of the bows from gold foil paper by Stampin' Up.  I kept the background just the kraft card to keep it simple.


I think they're multiplying just sitting there!  

Now I must go finish up some other things and get in bed at some point!

I used Cork, Canvas, Stamping, Die Cuts




Early Easter Blessings!

LOL, those bunnies look like my snippet bag, Nance! I LOVE the bunny cut out of cork! I think I'll be cutting some for Easter cards! The canvas tag with the sentiments in all those pastel, spring colors is fantastic! Thanks for sharing this with us at CAS Mix Up!

Love that stash of bunnies - you can make Easter cards to last a lifetime!!! Great use of the canvas to make the sentiment, and nice to combine both cork and canvas for our challenge. Thanks so much for joining us at CAS Mix Up.
