Have you ever gotten a stamp set and had your head fill up with ideas?! That’s how I feel about this adorable Honey Bee Stamps Blah Humbunny stamp set. You can see my prior silly card combining one of these bunnies with the Blah Bunny stamp for a silly/funny card HERE. For this card, I knew I needed a card for a family member who contrary to all of our wishes won’t be joining for our family beach holiday due to work commitments.
I first cut out a larger than normal card front and stamped out the top portion of one of the Blah Humbunnies tilting into frame (I chose the bunny whose ears flopped in the right direction for the tilt). Then I stamped out the sentiment, “missing you humbunny” also from the Honey Bee Stamps Blah Humbunny stamp set. To add a little holiday whimsy, I also stamped out three ornaments from the stamp set and drew in hanging lines from the sentiment to the ornaments with a 0.1 pt Copic Multiliner Pen.
I also thought it would add a little holiday cheer to add an elf hat so I stamped one of those out, colored it up and fussy cut it to place perfectly on the bunny’s head. I Copic colored the ornaments, bunny and elf hat with the following colors:
Bunny: E50, E53, Y26, R20, R30 and W7
Elf hat: R24, R27, R29, G14 and G17
Ornaments: R24, R29, G14, G17 and Y19
I added white highlights on the ornaments, elf hat, bunny eyes and bunny nose with a Uniball Signo White Gel Pen and emphasized the black of the bunny’s eyes with a 0.03 pt Copic Mulitiliner Pen. I also coated the elf hat and the ornaments with a Clear Wink of Stella for a festive shimmer.
Using a shimmery red card base, created a red frame around the card front. To add a little interest to the card and make it look like the bunny was leaning into the frame of the card front, I fussy cut around the bunny’s arm and elbow and cut down the card front, leaving a 1/4″ red border all around.
