Serendipity and Mixed Media Mania! with Elena O.



  Hello, it's Elena here today and I am excited to share with you my tags I've  made.

Feathers Tags by Elena Olinevich using BoBunny Serendipity Collection

I mixed Serendipity Noteworthy Die cuts and made some fussy cutting, but before that I started with my background. This time I played with the new Stencil Pastes from Pentart and the new stencils

The new stencils are really great and allow you to add more dimension. I added two colors at once.  They blend together beautifully..

I also made some paper layers and added the color with the acrylic paints from Pentart

It was fun to create the texture with the metallic paints and the pastes

I especially liked the 3D powder and balls, that I mixed with silver and gold paints for a uniqiue looking textured feature.

The birds and the flowers are so cute to add to any spring or summer projects

  To add more shimmer and glow to my cards, I used the new Glamour metallic paint in Gold.  This is unlike any paint I've ever used before. it is highly pigmented, but brushes on SHEER so you can see through to the paper underneath. It is super cool.

Quick and Easy Party Decor with Serendipity and Stencil Pastes with Shizuka


Hello, BoBunny Friends! It's Shizuka here.
Today I will share the Party Rosetta I made with beautiful BoBunny Serendipity collection and Pentart Stencil Paste.
These rosettesare fun to make and  can be used at various parties.  Don't you think it will be more fun if you make it from your favorite paper?
Rosetta of the paper I made this time is very easy, so please try making it.  The end result looks really nice!






First cut the paper of your choice to 1 3/8 x 12 and prepare a couple strips, depending on how many rosettes you'd like to make. And I will add folds like the image above. 


Next, prepare two types of paper of your choice. Pull out the two sheets with a BoBunny new craft die "Darling Doily Die". You cut the center part of one of the dolly along the circle.



Paste the folded paper according to the doily paper not cut.
Pull the outside of the cut doily and paste it according to the paper cut into the circle.
I will repeat these two.
Cut the edges of your favorite paper cut to 1 in width and connect it to the bottom of Rosetta.
This time I decorated using BoBunny Fancy Tags Dies.
Finally decorate your favorite decoration in the center of the circle is complete.


It is nice to simply insert your initials or names in the center of the circle.  You can also do a salutation such as Happy Birthday or Good Luck!


I think that you can decorate the layered chip board and jewel and finish it gorgeously.
I decorate this rosette with Pentart stencil paste and Fancy Flourishes Stencils.





I am glad if my project is helpful ♪

Thank you!!

Shizuka

Weekend Adventures and Cards, Cards, Cards! with Kathi


Hello Fellow Crafters,

Thanks for joining me for Paper Crafting Saturday today. I have made four cards using the paper line Weekend Adventure by BoBunny.



Four Fun Cards


Card 1 -

 The base card is using the coordinating Double Dot cardstock paper, Avocado Dot.  The next layer I used Weekend Adventures. The third layer is a dark green paper that was embossed using a tree die I had,  with the trees then lightly distressed with fine sandpaper.   Then the new craft die Bear Necessities was used to cut out the bears. The bears where layered on top of tan and brown bears.  The bears were distressed on the edges with chalking ink. The sign was created out of light brown paper then it was embossed using a wood grain embossing folder then distress with chalking ink. Then sentiment was stamped on white card stock then punched out and placed on top of the sign using pop dots. The small fish where cut out of WA picnic then distressed with brown chalking ink. Placed on the card with a brad. The small lake peaking out on the lower left  was created with blue card stock and Caribbean Glitter paste. Jute was used on the lower part of the card for the finishing touch.


Card 2-

I use Weekend Adventures "Blooms" as the bottom card base that measures 6 X 43/4" topped with a dark green card that has been embossed with a chicken wire embossing folder.   The dark green measures 5 3/4  X  4 1/4.  Weekend Adventure  Picnic was used with the new card craft die "Congratulations" was used to die cut the sentiment.


Card 3 -

I used Weekend Adventures Fly Away.  This is a 5 1/2" X 5 1/2 card. The base is a soft blue paper. layered with 5 1/4 X 5 1/4 panel, using two strips from the Weekend Adventures Bear Hug paper. The top one was fussy cut and placed at the top of the paper and the second one placed at the bottom. I used the carousel and two butterflies from the Weekend Adventures layered chipboard. The card was finished with an oval sentiment distressed with distress ink then adorned with silver confetti paste.


Card 4 -

Is a 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 yellow base card. Then layered with Weekend Adventures Swingset paper with a third layer being a soft blue. Both layers are distressed with a reddish chalking ink. A kite was created with weekend adventures papers Stripe and Road Trip. The kite tail is just some generic bakers twine.  The sentiment was stamped with archival ink with distressed edges.layered on the Stripe paper.  To finish the card, a layered chipboard banner and sentiment from the Weekend Adventures Good Vibes paper.

Fine Arts Friday with Ombretta




Hello and welcome to the BoBunny Blog today!

Today,  I propose to you a cut paper Art Project. This is my creation and I hope you like it!

Cut Paper Art by Ombretta Fusco using Bobunny Weekend Adventures

I drew the subject and started cutting the lines made with the pencil.

Then, I lifted and bent back all the cut pieces of paper...all of them...one by one...to mimic the look of the fish scales and fins.

I created a paper frame for my creation-this shows the back side of the paper:

My next step is painting the fish with metallic acrylic colors, which is the fun part and wehre the whole look comes together. I used a few of my favorite BoBunny and Pentart mixed media goodies to accent certain parts so they would stand out, and contoured others to create depth. You can do even more than I did here if you like a more colorful finished project.

See you soon!

Weekend Adventures Paper Frame with Ayumi


Hello Bo Bunny fans!

It's Ayumi here and for today's post, I would like to share this paper frame layout.  I used some fun new stuff-Weekend Adventures by BoBunny and Stencil Paste products by Pentart.


Hooray! by Ayumi



I made a paper frame with this very cute collection "Weekend Adventures" and decorated it.
I put a clear sheet on the top for the face of the frame and I also decorated the clear sheet.
I used Stencil Paste (Pearl) and Gold Confetti Paste.







For the elements of decoration, I used Chipboard and Noteworthy.  This bear from the Chipboard is very cute!




I compiled the way to make it a video!

Please see it if you like.





Thanks for joining me today.

One Layout Three Ways Wednesday-with Katherine


Hello Everyone,
Welcome to my One Layout in Three Ways post using the new Weekend Adventures collection from BoBunny.  I've started with a clean and simple page, and then move onto the new stencils and pastes by my third version.

Here is a quick look at the different stages, before I go through them in more detail.

I started my my page with Licorice double dot cardstock, I then chose some of the yellows and greens from the Weekend Adventure papers to match my photo.  I wanted some clusters of flowers so i used the new Posies stamps - and the largest stamp in this collection, I also used a couple of the smaller ones.  I took the large stamp and stamped it on both the Let's Play and Picnic papers - I cut out the whole image from the Picnic paper, leaving a thin green border, and then cut out just the flowers (not leaving any border) from the Let's Play paper.  I then mounted the flowers onto the green stamped image using foam squares.  I did the same for the smaller stamps and built up my clusters.  I cut out some words from Good Vibes and used the Noteworthy arrow as a template to make the same sort of shapes from my hand-cut ones.

Here is a close up of the stamped flowers.

For my next version of the page I used the new Mandala Garden stencil (this is already a favourite) and the new Stencil Pastes - I carefully mixed up my stencil paste colours to create a marbled effect with the stenciling - I used apricot, silver and black diamond along with a little bit of gold.  I also added in a few of the new dies - Mandala and Darling Doily - which are beautiful

Here you can see the marbled effect you get by adding a mix of colours through the stencils - I was really careful not to mix my paints up, so started with the lighter colours and wiped my palette knife between each application of paste.

For the final steps I added some gauze that I coloured with yellow ink and gold glimmer mist and then tucked it around my photo.  I used lots of the beautiful Pearlescents to add shimmer to my page - I used gold, sugar and butterscotch adding pearl drops on the Mandala die cut, around the photo and banners as well as some Licorice glitter paste and Gold Pearlescent drops to the centre of the flowers.  The final step was to add some of the new acrylic metallic glamour paints in Rich Gold.  I watered it down a little bit, covered my photo and then flicked it all around the edge.  I also switched my butterflies for the more glittery layered chipboard ones.
