Today I am so excited to share one of the newest Doodle Garden Stamps, HUNNY BUNNY! I had so much fun coloring her up. I have three different cards for you today, showing you three different  ways you can use her. 

First up is a Copic colored card. I stamped her onto my favorite x-press it blending card stock. I then used my Copic markers to make her come to life. 

Here are the markers I used.

 I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch for this one. I love the new HEXAGON STAX DIE-NAMICS.  It's such a different shape to show off a sentiment or image. I cut two, one from Grape Jelly cs and the other from some Crate Paper-on trend designer paper and layered them up.  I gave a quick stitch around the edges.  

I then cut out my Doodle Garden cutie and mounted her to the card front with some foam dimensionals. 

In the backdrop, you'll see those gorgeous LARGE LEAF FILLED FLOURISH cut from Grape Jelly cs. It was actually hidden behind my Hexagon, so I gave it a little snip, right in the middle and separated it to make it look just right, peeking out from behind the main image panel.


 Here's what that looks like. 

I used the new GRAPE JELLY PREMIUM DYE INK  to stamp my sentiment onto a Sentiment Strip with Whipcream cs.


 A few flowers from EASTER ELEMENTS DIE-NAMICS, complete with little leaves (those are the chickie wings from that same Die-namics set). I topped those off with a Sour Apple Button and twine. 


Next I was inspired by Inge's Prismacolored Pencil tutorial. Have you seen it?? WOW! Well I don't have any pencils (YET!!! that all changes tomorrow....I ordered some. Happy early Birthday to me!), but I was inspired to try a different coloring medium.  I pulled out my watercolor crayons and an aqua painter and got busy with HUNNY BUNNY. 


I stamped her onto some watercolor paper with Brilliance Graphite Black ink and topped her with some clear embossing powder. I like how the raised image, helps the water and color to stay in the lines. 


 I used some of my Copic blending techniques and applied them to my watercoloring. I think she turned out pretty good. I really like the softness the watercolors add to her. 



I was itching to use the new JOURNAL IT-LIBRARY CARD again.  So I cut an  INSERT IT DIE-NAMICS and added the JOURNAL IT-LIBRARY CARD stamp to it.  Then I stamped a few flowers from Lisa Johnson's EMBELLISHED EGGS and a sentiment, too.  The sentiment is from the HUNNY BUNNY SET.  Lovin' the GRAPE JELLY INK!!

 It's hard to see, but I also used the new INSERT IT- 3x4 POCKET DIE-NAMICS, to slide the library card, right into. 

I also created a fun corner embellishment with some customized eggs. I used the EASTER ELEMENTS DIE-NAMICS to cut out two eggs and then stamped one in GRAPE JELLY INK and the other,smaller one in SOUR APPLE INK. I also added a small, Sno Cone flower. 

A few other finishing details....a small scalloped border in Grape Jelly cs and a pretty Kraft Grosgrain bow.

I have one last card to share and this one is a Clean and Simple card.


 I mentioned yesterday that I am taking the online CAS Card Class 2. This is one of the sketches from the first day of class. I thought the open circle was a great place to show off this Doodle Garden-HUNNY BUNNY stamp.


 I also wanted to show you, that you don't always have to color in your line art images. They make a statement all by themselves. I did add a few highlights to her cheeks and ears with an R11 Copic Marker. Coloring on the Kraft cs turned out great. 

I used a Circle Stax 1 Die-namics to cut that circle, and then added some stamped flowers from  EMBELLISHED EGGS in GRAPE JELLY INK. I topped those with a rhinestone. The sentiment was stamped with the same purple ink  and added to a cut Sentiment Strip.  I then added the small die cut flower from EASTER ELEMENTS. 

That's it from me, today! Thanks so much for all your comments this release. I am always so grateful for them, and I do read each and every one of them! 


It's time to hop on over to Kim's blog to see the line up for this month's New Product Tour!!! I'll meet you over there.
