Hoppin' Down The bunny Trail

The Design Team at Double D
got together and decided to join a challenge
to help us get through the pandemic
and we chose the 
Cut It Up Challenge 

For my bunny card I used a new die
I just received in the mail...can you believe it?
I actually used something new right away...
miracles of all miracles lol.

It is from Cottage Cutz and is the Spring Bunnies Trio,
I just loved the plumpness of these cute bunnies,
There was another one I loved just as well, 
so I had to make a choice as I couldn't have both
(my order was already at my max),
but they have terrific sales and I stock up!

I die cut a couple clouds 
then used them for a stencil and inked with 
Distress Oxide salty ocean and
twisted citron for the bottom half.

Don't be intimidated by all the little pieces 
that come with the dies...
using tiny scrap pieces of paper,
I just lay them on the pieces to cut.
(I had photos of this but I had a malfunction
with my camera program and deleted them...ugh!!)

 Once all the pieces are cut
I just simply put them together
using tweezers to pick up the tiny pieces
and makes them go together quickly.

I thought it lacked something, 
so I tied on a piece of twine to finish off.

To see what my teammates created
here is a list of all the girls on the team joining in:
Diane (that's me)

Your little trio of pastel bunnies are darling with their polka dotted accents Diane! Great background building with inks. Those bunnies just pop off the card! You're such a dear and enabling friend. I'm making my weekly outing to the post office today and hoping my order from Cottage Cutz will be there. How did I miss these cuties?? I love our team and can't thank you and Dar enough for asking me to join you. I am blessed to call you my friend. <3

Your bunnies are so cute and that is a wonderful scene you have made to show them off. Love the wonderful colors.

Kathy Krug said...

Cute, Cute, Cute. Cottage Kutz always has the cutest dies and I love the little scene you created for the bunnies.

Shona Erlenborn said...

This is just too cute! Your little scene is so bright and cheery. Would be perfect for a little kid's Easter!

Amelia Breytenbach said...

Oh my this card is as cute as can be Diane! Love the bunnies and the vibrant colours - so pretty. Have a happy Easter.

OMG, this is so cute! I wish I'd gotten this die, but I thought it was more small pieces than this. It doesn't look bad at all! I do have a pick up tool which really helps. Still, it takes patience for some of them. I just love what you did with this. The polka dots are darling. You know I love them! Cottage Cutz are so much fun, aren't they? Got me grinning!
