Harmony: Layout with Angela

Hello BoBunny friends!
It's Angela here sharing a scrapbook page featuring the new charming Harmony collection. It's a fresh and tender collection with mainly pastels and lots of birds and flowers, perfect for spring projects for the coming sunny days.

I started my layout choosing the color combo and I went for this trio: slate blue, light ocher and salmon. They match beautifully together. I love these shades also because they aren't perfectly solid, they have a soft watercolor effect. So, I cut 3 circles, one from each color, using the We R Memory Keepers Circle Spin & Trim. I cut a 5" circle in blu, a 4" circle in ocher and a 3" circle in salmon. I also cut my photo in a circle shape of 3" and 1/2. Then, I arranged the circles so that they slightly overlap each other and I put the photo in the center.

Before adhering the circles, I stitched each one with my sewing machine. Then, I prepped the background. I used a smooth heavy white cardstock and I marked the position of the different circles on it. I colored and splattered the cardstock using Distress Inks that matched my circles, it means shaded lilac, scattered straw and spun sugar. To add more interest, I also stamped a few circles with the Painted Circles stamp set by BoBunny using the same Distress Inks colors.

When everything was dry, I sticked in place the circles and started embellishing the page.
My idea was to keep everything inside the circles creating a kind of color clusters. So, I placed the title on the blue circles, because it was the biggest.

According to my initial idea, I added yellow flowers on the yellow circles, pink flower on the salmon circle and so on. 
For the journaling, I added a brief description of the photo by hand, but before doing it I drew a few lines for being sure to write straight.

Here is a close up of the clusters. As you can see, I used dimensional foam adhesive to have different height. In some places, like in the photo, I even used two pieces of foam tape, one on the other.
Last, I trimmed 1/4 of inc all around the page, I sewed all around and adhere it to a multicolor polka dots paper for framing the layout.

That's all for today my crafty friends. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you feel inspired by my layout and by the beautiful Harmony collection.

Love,
Angela

Harmony: Layout by Emmy

Hello BoBunny fans!

Emmy here today with my first post for March featuring the amazing Harmony collection from BoBunny's newest release.


For my background I used a blueish pattern paper from the Harmony collection. I added the dimensional white layer using a Stickable Stencil and Texture paste.


Then I layered my picture on a slightly bigger panel from Double Dot cardstock and, using mounting foam tape, adhered it on top of a bluish pattern paper from the 6" Paper pad matching the collection. I adhered all the different layers in the middle of my background paper and added a die cut fancy edge at the top and at the bottom of my picture. 


I fussy cut the birds and the flowers from different 12" pattern papers and combined them with the pre cut images from the Noteworthy pack and the Stickers sheet. Using them I assembled the flower edges on both sides of my picture.




For my title I used letters from the Tickers Alphabet matching the Harmony collection. I decorated it with fussy cut paper dragonflies.


As a final touch I added rhinestones, pearls, shimmering brads and sparkling flourishes.

Using Stamps with Elena

Hello BoBunny  friends,
Elena here to share my cards I made while playing with BoBunny stamps
cards_Stamping_Elena_Mar_14_01.jpg

I do not regularly practice stamping techniques, but I enjoy floral stamps indeed, One can not have enough floral stamps on my opinion. So for my cards I used Simply Flowers Stamp Set and and combined stamping on the background with the fussy cutting the stamped image.

cards_Stamping_Elena_Mar_14_02.jpg

I started with creating the wreath on my background and played with -2 - 3 colors of green to build it.
cards_Stamping_Elena_Mar_14_03.jpg

Then I added some sketching with my color pencils.
 To create the flowers I stamped the images first with black, grey and peach inks and then colored with the watercolor pencils, however I haven't planned to add the water to mute the colors, so it's important to decide initially  as it determines what kind of inks you are going to use .

cards_Stamping_Elena_Mar_14_04.jpg

So I colored the flowers and cut out them .

Some of the flowers I mounted on the adhesive foam tabs.

Using Stamps with Elisa

Hi Crafty Friends!!

Here is Elisa from Italy!!! Today I want to share with you two cards I made using some of my favorite BoBunny Stamps Sets and the wonderful Harmony paper collection!!!






This are some more pictures about the first card (Beautiful Love):

Here you can see how I stamped the leaves: the one by Rose Garden Stamp Set with sticky powder and iridescent foil. The ore by Simply Flowers Stamp Set with green ink.

Iridescent leaves are ok with the iridescent thicker alpha realized for Harmony collection!!!


Behind the word love you can see how I realized the background: I used the "Beautiful" stamps many times, with grey ink (first and second generation stampimg) and I also use the little heart by Just My Type stamp set with peach ink.

Take a look at YouTube BoBunny channel to see the processing video!!!


And now some more pictures about the second card (Thank You):

For this card I used to different embossing powder: white for the Rose and gold for the Thank you sentiment.


My fussy cut mania is going on!!! This time I decided to cut the Thank you sentiment letters by letters.


I also used the BoBunny gold glitter paste with a dotted stencil in this corner!

Make Handmade Cards Under an Hour with Angela

Hey dear crafty friends! It's Angela here with you today. I have a quick project to show you, that I made using the new gorgeous Bee-utiful You collection by BoBunny. It's a bunch of cards I made in less than one hour, simple but beautiful and no measuring is required! Are you ready? Let's start! 

Bee-utiful_You_DIY_Cards_Angela_Mar08_01.jpg


My first step to save time was the paper. I alway struggle to measuring paper sizes, card bases and things like that. This time, I figured it out using te 6" x 8" Bee-utiful You paper pad! It has twelve different patterned papers, perfect for card making. I grabbed my preferred designs and I folded each one in half and I ended up with a 4" x 6" card. How simple is it?

Bee-utiful_You_DIY_Cards_Angela_Mar08_02.jpg

Then, I chose a few die cuts from the Bee-Utiful You Noteworthy pack and for the first card I went with this flower which has a hole in the center. It was perfect to create a tiny shaker flower. I used a die from All Occasion Senentiments dies set and I cut the word Thanks and a couple of hearts out from a piece of gold foam.


All the cards I made have a sentiment also inside. Here I used a stamp from the Expressions Stamps, stamped it in black Versafine and added a little glitter heart.

Bee-utiful_You_DIY_Cards_Angela_Mar08_04.jpg

For the first card I chose a honeycomb pattern and a bee cut out. To move to the next level, I sewed by hand the design of the fly of the bee and added the word Hugs from the same All Occasion Sentiments die set. If you can't sew or you don't have time enough to do it, you can simply draw it using a black liner.

Bee-utiful_You_DIY_Cards_Angela_Mar08_05.jpg

To cover the back of the stitch visible in the inside of the card, I cut a piece of white paper slightly smaller than my card and adhered it with some adhesive. On the same paper I stamped the sentiment this time from the Quotations Stamp set.

Bee-utiful_You_DIY_Cards_Angela_Mar08_06.jpg

Based on the same stitching idea of before is the second card. The patterned paper is a cream polka dots patterned on which I stitched the stems of three flowers. I added the word Celebrate in glitter, using the All Occasion Sentiments dies and a few Pearlescent dots in Sugar color.

Bee-utiful_You_DIY_Cards_Angela_Mar08_07.jpg

Inside the card, I chose another beautiful sentiment from the Quotations Stamps, stamped on the white paper I used to lining the inside.

Bee-utiful_You_DIY_Cards_Angela_Mar08_08.jpg

Again bees for my forth card and a layer of pieces form the Noteworthy pack like the honeycomb. I cut the word Enjoy from the Charcoal Double Dot paper and from a piece of black fun foam. I glued the two pieces together to make the sentiment stand out.

Bee-utiful_You_DIY_Cards_Angela_Mar08_09.jpg

Since in this card there's no stitching, I didn't need to lining so I stamped directly on the card. In fact, the papers from the 6" x 8" paper pad which is another plus for card making!

Bee-utiful_You_DIY_Cards_Angela_Mar08_10.jpg

The fifth and last card is definitely the quickest. I only used die cuts, a doily and a sticker and glued all together. I love the quote of the banner and even more the quote I stamped in the inside of the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you liked my quick and easy cards and you feel inspired to create your own.
Love,
Angela
