Versatile Greeting Bunny Card

I had a card class at my local library branch yesterday...was free for patrons...and we made 4 different cards. I'm sharing this one first since it's so close to Easter, although this card can be made with a variety of greetings, via the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (available in wood-mount, clear-mount English, or clear-mount French) and coordinating Classic Label Punch.

In my class, I offered 4 different greetings for this card: Happy Easter, Hello Baby, Thinking of You, and Friend to Friend. They are included amongst the 24 greetings in the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, and all the greetings in that stamp set fit in the Classic Label Punch. We stamped the greeting with the Soft Suede ink pad, onto Crumb Cake card stock, to match the card base. The green layer is Pear Pizzazz card stock, which was run through the Big Shot with the Petal Burst embossing folder.

The bunny was punched out of Whisper White card stock with the 1-1/2" Circle Punch for the body, the 1" Circle Punch for the head, and the 1/2" Circle Punch for the tail. The bunny ears are the "tail" piece from the Fox Builder Punch. A wee little brushing of Clear Wink of Stella added just the right amount of glisten to the bunny tail, which was popped up with a Stampin' Dimensional. And the tiny bow was made from the delicate but sturdy Whisper White 1/8" Sheer Ribbon.

I also offered two different colors for the card stock strips at the bottom. The color pictured is Soft Sky card stock, and the other color I offered was Pirouette Pink card stock. A couple of my class attendees chose one strip of each color. So Saffron card stock would also be a lovely soft color you could choose for those strips.

I have to tell you, we have had the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set in our catalog for a LONNNGGG time, and we have a new catalog debuting at the beginning of June. Sometime next month we'll be getting a list of Retiring Items from this catalog, and it's always a surprise as to what's on it. Generally, a lot of the oldest stamp sets tend to drop off, so I would be sad--but not surprised--to see this set leave.

Now, you should also know that once that Retiring List comes out, the items on it start selling out right now is a great time to go through the current catalogs (2017-18 Annual Catalog and 2018 Occasions Catalog) and make sure you get the items you really want.

ONE item that has the tendency to sell out lightning fast, is ink--especially reinkers. We already know that all five of the 2016-2018 In Colors are scheduled to retire: Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo, and Sweet Sugarplum. If you are interested in any of those colors, I strongly urge you to BUY THEM NOW...get the ink pads, reinkers, the marker set, and the coordinating card stock. You can browse all the 2016-2018 In Color items HERE in my Online Store.
