Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop #4

Hi, everyone!  I've really been inspired this week by the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! I keep searching through my crafty stash for coffee, tea, and cocoa-themed images.  I found this cutie and I couldn't resist linking up again! Anyone can join the hop - check out all the details here! You must link up a newly created spring-themed coffee, tea and/or cocoa project. I don't have any coffee-themed stamps but I do have some digital images.  

This cute bunny is from my Joanna Sheen House-Mouse CD Volume 1. He's snoozing in the tea box after drinking the chamomile tea! The image was die-cut with my Memory Box Cross-Stitched Frame Borders. I fussy-cut around the bunny's ear to exclude it from the die cut.


I was also inspired by the sketch over at My Creative Time (see below).  I used a Happy Spring sentiment from My Creative Time's Color Me Happy clear stamps, which I stamped repeatedly on the green panel with SU Certainly Celery to create a background. 

Here's the sketch, which I turned counter-clockwise:



I added a green strip, embossed with Sissix Honeycomb, and a green fishtail banner according to the sketch. Then I tied green American Crafts twine in a multi-loop bow.  To finish it off I added a sparkly butterfly sticker from Forever in Time.

Oh, Kitty, too cuteeee!!! Love this sleeping bunny, so sweet scene!!!
Love how you fussy-cut around the bunny's ear to exclude it from the die cut, I don't be able to make this... How you made the die don't cut the cutting ear?
Great design and embellishments!

MaryH said...

Aw, he is just so cute & relaxed I wanna grab him for a big hug. Love your colors...very cool & relaxing. I don't have any 'cook/food' themed stamps either. Maybe one digi image. Something to think about, I guess. Really like the way you popped on the purple-y butterfly..it brings out the print colors in your tea box. Also like that cool green spring print dp. Terrific card, Miz Kitty. TFS & Happy wk.
