It's a Bunny Hop!

H2H is hosting its first ever blog Bunny Hop.  I am sharing with you some Easter layouts that I just completed in Studio J.  (You can click on any of the images to make them larger.)

The first layout uses the kit entitled "Take the Cake".  Even though the kit is designed for birthday layouts, I thought some of the paper designs worked great for my egg hunt pictures.

The next two layouts use the kit entitled "Hippity Hop".  I love how you are able to change the colors of the paper to match your photos!

The H2H Bunny Hop starts on Monday, April 18, at so be sure to check back on Monday to see some more Easter artwork.

Wishing You Sunshine

The Heart 2 Heart Challenge this week is "April Showers Bring May Flowers", where we are to create something with showers and/or flowers.

My card was inspired by a design I found in another paper crafting supply catalog.  When I saw the flower bouquet made with buttons, I had to try it out myself using the new buttons that CTMH unveiled in their Spring/Summer Idea Book

Since there isn't a yellow assortment, I made my own!  I mixed one drop of Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint with one drop of Sunny Yellow Reinker and painted it on the back of one of the flower buttons from the Clear Buttons assortment.

For the sunshine stamp image (from the Splendid Day stamp set), I stamped the image using Sunny Yellow ink and then used a sponge dauber to dab some Sunset ink around the edges of the image.

All supplies used are CTMH, and you can purchase them all here or by clicking on the "Shop with Me" link on the right.

Paper:  White Daisy Cardstock, Wings Level 2, Fanfare Level 2
Inks:  Sunset, Sunny Yellow, Black
Embellishments:  Clear buttons assortment; blue buttons assortment; pink buttons assortment; red buttons assortment; basic buttons assortment; green floss assortment; bitty sparkles; sweet leaf ribbon rounds
