Simon Says Stamp - Just For You Release Blog Hop, Day 1



Hi Lovelies!

Welcome to Day 1 of Simon Says Stamp's Just For You Release Blog Hop! We are going to make what I call an ADORA-bunny against a fun polka dot background to celebrate Easter!


The Layered Bunny die-set makes assembling your bunny sooo easy and you can chose to ink blend and color your layers as I did here or just use colored cardstock. I also had all the fun using shaping tools and paint to create our dotty background - very relaxing!



I hope that you will enjoy this project but do to explore the Simon Says Stamp Release Gallery to check out so many other goodies from all the other makers!

PROJECT WALKTHROUGH

POLKA-DOTTING THE BACKGROUND


Start with the background as you will need time for the paint to dry.


We'll be using Tim Holtz Sizzix Shaping Kit dipped in Lost Shadow Distress Paint to create the dots


Tip: Paint consistency should be somewhat runny for this to work best, add a little water if needed.





Squeeze a few drops of paint onto your craft surface. Use the largest ball tool to randomly create the biggest dots first.


Clean the ball head with a wet rag.











Use a medium-sized ball tool to add additional dots.














Use the smallest-ball tool to create the teeniest dots all over to finish the background and set aside to dry.













 


CREATING THE BUNNY

Die-cut all the layers of the Layered Bunny out of 110lb white cardstock.















Starting with Flannel Ink and the Small Flannel Blending Brush, ink-blend the grey ink around the perimeter of the body and head.












Continue with ink-blending just a hint of Latte Ink and the Small Mocha Brush in random areas around the perimeter of the body and face to vary the color the fur.












Use the Round Detail Brush to add a little Carnation Ink to the insides of the ears or color with the R32 Copic Marker. I did both! (ink first, marker after)


Layer and adhere the tummy onto the body base and also the layers of the head including the inked insides of the ears.







Use RV00 on the nose and N4 on the eyes.


Use a white gel pen to add a white dot to the eyes.


Adhere the head to the body and hold for a few seconds to bond the layers.









 

CREATING THE SENTIMENTS


Trim the "Hoppy" sentiment from the Reverse Some Bunny Sentiment Strips.

Die-cut and adhere the sentiment layers to each other.



Use the Small Blending Brushes to ink blend a gradient a Guava, Lemonade and Sprout inks from left to right across the Happy Easter sentiment base.


Layer and adhere the sentiment to the newly-inked base.


Now assemble and embellish all this cuteness!


 

I loooove polka dots!



Soooo cuuuute!



And that fluffy tummy!!!



A little bit of summer snuck into that ink blend! :-)



 

And there you have it... our ADORA-bunny!!!
