I have recently picked up this “Hang In There” Honey Bee Stamp Set and wanted to use it for a simple card for a crafty friend, Tina, who loves rabbits (YT: TheScrappinRabbit). The bunny holding a sign that you can insert any sentiment is perfect for so many occasions. Plus, if you recall, there was a crazy toilet paper roll shortage in the early months of the pandemic so I thought that stamp would be a fun “background” for the card front of this whimsical, humorous card.
I used the following Copic colors to keep the card soft and sweet:
Rabbit: E51, E53, E55 and R20 and R30 for blush and inside of ears
Sign: R20 and R30
Toilet paper rolls stamped with Simon Says Stamp Smoke Dye Ink: N1
I also added a bit of shine with a Sakura black glaze pen and highlights with a Signo Uniball White Gel Pen for the nose and eyes.
For the peekaboo window, I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares Die Set. I estimated the size and positioning I would need for the peekaboo window for the bunny, and luckily it turned out pretty good. However, a better process order would have been to die cut the opening first and then stamping the image in the open window. 🙂 Also, because the Copic ink bled through the card stock, I did line the back side of the card front as well as the back of the card for a clean look.
