Happy Hoppy Day Series | ft. Gerda Steiner Designs and a Video!

Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.

Today is the first card in my Happy Hoppy Day Series for 2018, today's card features the "Happy Hoppy" stamp set by Gerda Steiner Designs as well as a tutorial video - because I figured out more editing! YAY!!

Moving forward, if there is a video with a card, it'll be at the top of the post, then I'll post the picture and do my written "how I did it" part, just like always. I truly hope you enjoy!

To begin, I cut down a piece of 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock and used Distress Oxide Inks to make it look like grass. Once that was dry, I used this Happy Easter die from Memory Box to cut my front-most layer.

I stamped this bunny from Gerda Steiner Designs with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on the back of the scrap that was cut away from the green base, and coloured him in with Copic markers. I wasn't sure if his tongue was sticking out or if that was his teeth, so I opted for the tongue because it was just too cute. I then fussy cut him out.

I used a piece of patterned paper from Lawn Fawn's Perfectly Plaid Rainbow collection to work as my background, but when I measured it out, I found that there was much more sky than I had originally intended.

To solve this, I used the medium Stitched Puffy Clouds Border die from Lawn Fawn to cut some clouds out of vellum. I adhered them down, to the sky ensuring that all the adhesive would be hidden by the green panel.

I then added the green panel and finally popped my bunny up on some foam tape to give him a bit of dimension. It also helps to keep the vellum down and avoid curling.

My panel was mounted to the front of a standard A2 sized card base and that is it for this card.

I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar, over on Facebook and now on YouTube! Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
