Hi card making friends and welcome back. I have a NEW Video for you today, but it’s not a card, it’s a Bunny Vignette Box. Finally, I’m caught up on all my design team work after being sick and ended up with two days off…YEAH! My stock pile of Tim Holtz/Sizzix dies etc. has been calling to me so I decided it was high time I had some fun with them.
PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. See below for my full disclosure.
A few changes around here:
You may have noticed that I have backed off on a bunch of design team work, that’s on purpose. I’m going to spend more time creating with what I want to create with and sharing those videos with you. Design Team work is fun but it’s a lot of time consuming work, and you don’t always love what the company sends you, LOL (much as we are supposed to haha). I have kept Simon Says Stamp and Spellbinders as my two. I get lots of work from them and I always love what they send me. From time to time I will do guest design stuff, like I’m currently doing for Alex Syberia, but mostly, I am going to get back to having fun with this craft and not working 15 hours a day.
I’m still working on painting/renovating the second floor of our house too so I had to carve out some time for that as well.
Ok, short story long – you are up to date on my life, too much work, not enough play, haha, let’s play with bunnies and flowers.
The first part of today’s video, up to 7:44 minutes I share how I die cut the Tim Holtz Brush Stroke Flowers, (out of watercolor paper), laid them out on my Misti Sticky Mats and water colored them with my Karen Markers and my water brush.
PS, I also tried the New Simon Says Stamp, Brutus Monroe STICKY MAT and it worked well too.
Karen Markers Colors used:
Turquoise Flowers; 264, 207, plus 854, centers 228. Cabbage Roses: (large pink flower) 170, 359. Small Roses: 181, 209. Purple: 247, 226. Yellow flowers: 283, 051, centers in 282.
All other flower centers: 172, 552. Leaves and Stems: 071, 297, 131.
Step two of the video, I share how I used Tim’s Vignette boxes and a couple other Bunny Die Sets to create this adorable shadow box. My stamp room is All WHITE and I highlight with Teal/Turquoise, I’m starting a Vignette wall in here, and this sweet girl is my first one. Grab a tea and create with me won’t you.
Creating the Bunny Vignette Box:
Start by painting the box white. Then mix turquoise paint in with the white for the second and third coats. I used the lighter mix on the inside of the box then added more turquoise to paint the outside of the box and I left it quite streaky as I like that look. I used an inexpensive acrylic paint from Michaels, in a tube, (see them in the video), but I have also linked to some paint you can purchase from Simon Says Stamp.
Next, I cut a piece of design paper from Lavinia and glued it into the box as my backdrop.
Then, I used the Gina K White Glitz Gel and Tim’s Hocus Pocus Stencil to add some glitter stars.
Adding the Bunny:
Using, the Bunny Stitch die set, cut the bunny out of Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Velvet Luxury Cardstock. She is so soft.
Next, back her with a piece of gray, then cut her out two more times once in pink and once in black to inlay her facial, ears and tummy details. This die set also has a cute carrot die. You only need one, even though in the video I cut out 3.
Next, cut the eggs. I used all the Lindy’s Magical Papers I have been creating lately. They make the most beautiful watercolor eggs.
Bunny Vignette Box – Decorating the outside:
Finally, I glued in some moss and starting layering in all my pieces.
Adding the Sentiment: I white heat embossed the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Sweet Tweets Stamp Set and added it to the bottom center of the box.
