Jen Carter Bunny Buddies Coolness 5 wm

This bunny...oh my, isn't he so cute?  And he has a partner in crime too that I didn't use on this card, but you must check out the entire set called Bunny Buddies Die Stamp Bundle here!  I stamped him on a panel that I had die cut with the Wonky Rectangles dies that I seem to pull out quite often and then colored him with copics.  I stamped the sentiment also from the bundle and embossed it with white on black cardstock.  This set is great for masculine cards! 

Jen Carter Rustic Spring Brush Script  Spring Blessed 1 wm

My last card today features a few new dies and the Rustic Spring stamp set I showcased yesterday.  First, let's talk about the background.  I used the new (GENIUS!) die called the Color Blocking Die to create the background.  I pieced three pieces of patterned paper perfectly together to make a fun mix & match background.  On the green/white & yellow striped pieces I also used the Quilted Stitched So Sunny Die to cut those cute little sunshines into the paper which added more dimension.  I created a video on ways to use this die with a tip on an easy way to get all of your patterned papers lined up every time.




The best tip I can give you is to cut all of your papers at the same time when you use the Color Blocking Die die (thank you Chrissy Larson for sharing this game changing tip!!).  This ensures that all of your angles are the same and you can then easily line up the papers on your card.  Also when you do this, you'll have enough pieces to make 2 - 3 cards using the leftovers!

Jen Carter Rustic Spring Brush Script  Spring Blessed Closeup

For the main image, I die cut the vellum mat with the Stitched Mats Rectangles dies. I also die cut & embossed the houses & tree from the new Rustic Spring Stamp set and the previously released Rustic Christmas sets (they have matching die sets too that you can see here).  I used my palette watercolors to color the houses and the tree and used foam tape to pop them up.  I die cut the new gorgeous "Blessed" die which is one of three dies in the Brush Script Spring die set.
