Best Bunny for Third Thursdays Blog Hop

Hello there! It’s time for another blog hop with the 3rd Thursdays team. This month, our theme is sharing projects featuring the new Stampin’ Up!® Sale-A-Bration items released on February 15th, along with other fantastic Sale-A-Bration products. You can see the new products by clicking HERE. Sale-A-Bration truly is the BEST time of the year, as you can get these items for FREE with your qualifying purchase.
For my project, I decided to pair together the sentiment from the Part of My Story (Sale-A-Bration) stamp set, the new Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper from a bundle in the new Sale-A-Bration release and the Best Bunny Bundle which is found in the Annual Catalog.  

The Painted Seasons Bundle has quickly become one of my favorites. The bundle consists of a beautiful stamp set and this fabulous coordinating Designer Series Paper. It can be earned for free with your $100 order. I wanted to do something a little different with my project and not use the bundle together but rather combine a few different stamps to think "outside of the box" a bit. 
Isn’t that little bunny adorable? I just love that there is a coordinating punch as well. It makes it so easy to cut him out, pop him up on dimensionals and give him some personality. I love it! This little guy is pretty easy to color with the Stampin’ Blends and although I used colors that aren’t technically in the DSP, all of the shades work together. The “pieces" of the bunny are popped up on dimensionals and I also used the grass stamp behind the bunny to give him something to “sit” on. 

There are a lot of different textures on this card, but I think it all works with the “woodsy” theme. This one is definitely not a card that can be mailed with one stamp though. It’s a little on the chunky side. It will just have to go to someone extra-special. That stitched scalloped border is from the Be Mine Stitched Heart Framelits and I have been finding that I have been using it a LOT lately. I just love the little detail it adds. 
It’s a little hard to see in the photo but I heat embossed the sentiment by stamping the sentiment first in Versamark ink, then in my Early Espresso ink pad and used Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder. It just adds a little bit of extra shiny detail. I also used my Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to add a pop of sparkle to the inside of the bunny’s ears. I left the inside of the card blank to add a handwritten message. I’ve listed all of the products I used to create the card below. You can click on the photos to shop in my online Stampin’ Up!® store. 

Thanks so much for visiting today! Please make sure to follow the hop to see more ideas with Sale-A-Bration products. You will be heading over to my dear friend, Krystal Robert’s blog next. Have a great day!
