My New Bunny!

Hello and thank you for hopping by for a visit.

This is my new Sizzix BigZ die which arrived yesterday.

I was cardmaking up the garden in my cabin and got a phone call from hubby to say it had just been delivered.

So I popped down to the house and went straight back and made this card.  I cut it out with a scrap of white card and a snippet of paper which came free with a magazine a long time ago.  Then I cut off his tail on the paper to reveal a white tail and stuck them together.

I added the small flower stickers as part of my "using up" project although after sticking on the first decided I didn't like it.  When I tried to remove it  the paper underneath tore so I had to add a few more.  I think I may add a piece of cotton wool to his tail.

I would like to enter my card into Darnell's NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) #7 Challenge and
Pixies Snippets Playground - Week 244


  1. This Bigz die is already in my wishlist, too! :D Your card looks so lovely with the tiny stickers, they matches well with the embossing on the background! And the adorable bunny is a delight with this pretty paper!
    I think as you: a cotton wool for tail would be perfect, it will be so tactile! :D
    Hugs, have a wonderful Sunday!

  2. A beautiful die Barb, love the patterned paper you used lovely against the pink embossing

  3. Such a cute bunny and beautiful card. Great die.

  16. Oh, wow, now they make stitched bunnies?! What did we ever do before fabulous stitched dies?! This card is so adorable, Barb!

  21. Oh how sweet Barb! Love the bunny (a cottonwool tail would look very sweet I agree). Lovely background as well as the paper you used to die cute the bunny. Now, I'm unsure if this is a stitched cut die or you added the stitching - even with my nose pressed against the screen it's hard to tell! If it's a stitched bunny then it's a new one on me :) Looks great, however it's done!

    1. Thanks Di and everybody else for your lovely comments. I forgot to mention that I did add faux stitching. Barbxx

  22. Hi Barb,
    what a super card, and I love that super bunny die.
    Great embossing and paper piecing also.
    Yes I think your right about the cotton wool for the tail.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  23. Hi Barb enjoy your new machine, I got a new sewing's still in the box as I daren't get it out!
    I love your bunny card, the white tail is cute as it is but a little bit of cotton wool would be great too.

    Hugs Erika. x

  24. These larger dies are great for creating a statement piece on your cards and this sweet bunny looks fabulous Barb.

  25. Now I see what you mean by the faux stitching. THis reminds me of those calico cats and other calico animals that were all the rage when country chic was hot. I think that was a really long time ago now.

  26. You are making me want to buy this bunny, Barb!!!
    Love this card, too... and The Bunny. x
