Newton’s Nook – Bunny Tails Duo

Hello again! I’m over on the Newton’s Nook blog today sharing a fun set of cards I made using the fun bunny tails stencil. Isn’t it just the cutest with those fluffy tails sticking out everywhere!?! I love them! For release week I made rainbow tails so today I’m sharing fuzzy ones and foiled, shiny ones too!

I originally wanted to see what the bunnies looked like inked up with white pigment ink on kraft cardstock and had planned to give them fuzzy white tails but changed my mind after I inked up the second panel with those cute light brown bunnies. These cards were super fun and really quick to come together.

For both cards I started by inking the stencils up and then used Thermoweb transfer gel on the tail portion and set them aside to dry before running the panels through my laminator with pink melon deco foil and white latte deco foil flock. Let’s take a closer look at the foiled one first.

After foiling those cute bunny tails, I die cut the panel with a scalloped rectangle from frames & flags. Then I die cut a banner from the same set, flipped the die and cut it again to create a double-ended banner. I stamped the Hello Spring stamp and colored it with my copics.

I cut a piece of pink cardstock to match the pinks in the foil and markers I chose to color my image. Then I inked the edge with picked raspberry distress oxide, flicked it with water, pearl watercolor and black soot distress ink so it’s got some texture and interest. I adhered this panel to a card base then popped up the stenciled panel and banner with foam tape.

For finishing touches on this card, I added some pink glitter glue from my stash to the bunny’s tail, pink letters and tulip. Then I added unicorn Stickles to the flower center and glossy accents to the bunny’s nose. It’s such a bright, happy card! I’m really wishing for lots of sunshine after making it.

Now for the panel with the fuzzy tails! I stamped images from Hoppy Greetings and colored them with my copic markers. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I also die cut part of a rounded rectangle from frames & flags and then used the land borders to cut the top into some grass. I inked it up with twisted citron and mowed lawn distress oxide inks and spritzed it with water.

I added foam tape to my images and grass and added them to the stenciled panel. Then I added foam tape to that and popped it onto a teal card base I had created. Next, I moved on to some simple finishing touches. On this card I just added glossy accents to the flower centers, bunny’s nose and toe beans and called it finished.

These cards are so fun and perfect for spring! My daughter always gets really excited for Easter so I think I create more decorations, cards and things for it because we’re just in the mood and it all makes us happy. I’ve also always had a thing for bunnies. They are too cute and these bunnies are no exception!

Did you have a favorite between today’s cards?

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
