Somebunny loves you...

I am now into Valentine-making mode. I first made some Valentines to be sold at the thrift store (I like to display them among the seasonal jewelry items in the jewelry cases).

This is the first Valentine I made using a From the Heart digital stamp called Bunny Love.

I thought this little bunny was so cute.

I printed three of the bunnies for each card. I used the extra two bunnies to create a layering technique that would give my bunny some dimension.

I fussy cut just the face, then shaped it with a flower-shaping tool and added it to my original image with a foam square to maintain the dimension. Can you see it?

Then I fussy-cut the heart and hands, also shaping them and adhering them with small foam squares.

Finally, the little feet were fussy-cut and given the same treatment, however, this time they were adhered with small glue dots that I had made with some Aleene's Tack It Over and Over glue. And that reminds me...I need to make some more of those today!!

My oval die is by My Creative Time and my loopy edge was cut with an unbranded die.

The sentiments on the front and the inside were computer-generated. The string of little hearts is just a leftover piece from a die-cut for a different Valentine. As they say, "Waste not, want not." Nah, that doesn't work for craft supplies. No matter how many scraps we keep and use, we still "want" more supplies.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Really cute. I love how you made the puffy effects. I have this digi and will have to try that. I am totally with you on wanting more supplies. Just can't resist, there are so many cute ones out there.

Oh love your waste not want not - I try and do that but then forget where I stashed what I was saving. This bunny is simply adorable and love the fussy cutting. Love the puffy little feet. Someone is going to smile when they get this Valentine.

This is fabulous, Cheryl! I love the way you puffed up your bunny to give him lots of dementia! I love the design and your coloring is awesome!! Hugs, Darnell
