Uniko Revisit and Blog Hop ...

.... Morning! This is a scheduled post - I'll be in Florida at the Back to Back Retreat with Dyan Reaveley and Teesha Moore when this goes live! It's time for the Uniko Revisit Blog Hop. Bev tends to release new products every other month and, on the off-month (so to speak), we revisit an older set of stamps. This month we're revisiting Some Bunny - which is appropriate as it's not long until Easter! Here's my card:

Stamps: Uniko - Some Bunny, Background Blocks Halftone, Simply Said
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, Soft Sky, Daffodil Delight; Distress - Squeezed Lemonade; Versafine - Onyx Black; Memento - Tuxedo Black, London Fog
Dies: Spellbinders - Nested Eggs (S4-264) #1, #2 and #4
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU DP - Garden Green, Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight; Copics; Spectrum Noir Sparkle - Clear


I had fun making this card. I used the colours from this month's House of Cards - HOC#03 challenge - I do like the clean, fresh colours. They also want us to create a scene, so I decided to have some Easter bunnies guarding their eggs!!

I started by stamping the Halftone stamp  in blue and yellow on some scrap pieces of card. Then I stamped the bunny on top and heat embossed with clear powder. I stamped the bunny again twice more using Memento ink and coloured the ears and front of the body with copic markers, then I restamped with Versafine and heat embossed. Then I carefully cut out the colour areas and adhered them to the dotty bunnies. I finished the bunnies by adding a bow tie to the blue bunny and a flower necklace to the yellow bunny. I used dies to cut out a number of Easter eggs from design papers. On the card based I used the Halftone block to stamp "grass" along the bottom of the card. I attached the bunnies to the card using dimensional gel. Next I attached the eggs being careful to bring the bunnies ears to the front as they peek around the eggs. I finished the card with a simple Easter greeting and some little flowers. On the inside I cut a mat layer of yellow design paper, added a greeting to the white panel along with another Easter bunny. I'm also submitting this card to Love to Craft Challenge Blog - LTCCB#8 where it's Anything Goes.
