Laura's Loft Shop and Hop....Somebunnies Luck!

Hop back to Robbie's post here!

Welcome to my monthly post for Laura's shop and hop. I hope the winter is treating you kindly and you are snuggled up inside with some crafting supplies of your own.
This month I had fun using Avery Elle's More Stories, which is a very versatile set, since it has options for every season and more. It also has matching dies. It doesn't hurt that it's absolutely adorable too!

I stamped the bunny from the set using Memento black ink on some Tim Holtz watercolour distress card stock. Once dry it was then coloured using Zig Clean Colour pens and a water brush. I then fussy cut it out. The background is stitched square cut using my Silhouette Cameo but you could also use a Cricut or any stitched dies. It was cut from Neenah 80llbs cardstock and sponged using Ranger's mini round blending foam and Distress Inks in Peeled Paint, Evergreen BoughCrushed Olive, Mowed Lawn and Vintage Photo. Spritz with a little water and blot immediately. Grass from the set was then overstamped. Mount on some white card 2/16th" of an inch larger. Mount two panels of coloured papers and white card and mount to a white card. I felt the back green wasn't quite right so I sponged with the Distress Inks and overstamped with Kaisercraft's crackle stamp. Cut balloons from cardstock. You can use dies, a die cutting machine or stamp them out. Sponge and grunge as desired so they blend with the feel of the rest of your card. Assemble all elements and draw on balloon strings using a black gelly roll pen. 

And here is my extra project for this month. I used a kraft tag from Hero Arts. Stamp the More Stories bunny and butterfly in Black Memento ink. The flowers and stitching are from Stampendous's hand of friendship set. Colour with Prismacolour pencils.

This month you could win the following amazing goodies!

That's a fuse tool, basic enamel dots, jewel box exclusive sequins and Wow embossing powder white opaque ultra high!
