Another Ears to You

Have I mentioned how much I'm enjoying the single stamps that Stampin' Up! is offering lately?  My newest obsession seems to be the Ears to You stamp.  When I first saw it, I thought it was just too cute, and I still feel that way after using it several times.  Here's the project the classes made this week with one of the little bunnies.

Stamps:  Ears to You
Ink:  Pretty in Pink pad, Crumb Cake marker
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze
Accessories:   Big Shot with Honeycomb TIEF and Designer Frames TIEF, Extra-Large Oval Punch, Brayer, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Pearls Basic Jewels, Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon, and Dimensionals
Wish you could see this card in person.  The colors are so subtle, but very beautiful.  I had seen this card (sort of) some place and knew I had to make something similar.  Thought about it a few days, and then couldn't find the original card.  And I'm not too sure how the original looked exactly (and can't give credit where due!), but this is my version anyway.

The Honeycomb embossing folder was brayered with Pretty in Pink ink before inserting the cardstock and embossing it.  This leaves a pale pink color inside each of the hexagon shapes.  Very pretty.  To coordinate, the bunny oval and sentiment layer were both sponged lightly with pink on the edges.  Very subtle.  Don't know why I don't use the small Frames TIEF more often.  It really is the perfect frame for this little bunny. 

And speaking of the bunny, I only used the middle bunny of the trio.  He was colored with a Crumb Cake marker to single him out.  For a variation, this card could have been made landscape style and used one of the other bunnies that are more crouching down and then used the oval on it's side.  Just an idea....

I liked the addition of the tiny flower and pearl.  This keeps it looking sort of vintage and feminine too.  Hope you like this idea.  Sorry I can't give credit to the person that inspired me to try brayering on the embossing folder and using this stamp with it.  It's a winner, isn't it!  Thanks for stopping in today.  It's been a crazy week trying to watch grandkids everyday and hold classes three evening too.  Can't wait for tomorrow for my workshop with some lovely ladies.  Then, relax.......ahhhhhhhh        
See you soon,  Sharon
