At last…the long awaited Dutch bunny portrait I sneak-peeked a few weeks back! I’ve saved him for a special bloghop – my friend Jessica Frost Ballas is celebrating 10k subscribers by gathering up a lot of giveaways! Stay tuned for info below in this post about that, and the supplies are at the end of the post 🙂

The Hello Bunny stamp is one of the “Big and Bold” series from Colorado Craft Company – it’s just the head so I show you how to add the body too, it’s super easy! (Note that the dies cut out the head, not the body, of course.)


This card can be colored in a lot of other mediums too, not just Copics!

The crazy cutting out of the ears might have been confusing – I wanted a straight edge *inside* the width of the ears so they’d stick out. An xacto knife could do this but…after a college accident while prepping my senior show, my thumb throbs when I even think of an xacto blade. LOL! Yes, still have the scar! So I used my trimmer, carefully stopping before cutting all the way to the ears, fussy cutting the tops of the ears. For the TOP horizontal bit, I made a slice into the ears (no crying was heard!) so I could “bend” them against the blade and cut into only the white paper portion. Again, a knife might be less confusing but….that thumb!

The yellow border was cut just a little bigger than the white section so it stuck out a little, then popped onto the card base.
