The Cat's Pajamas is gearing up for a big stamp release next week. Today's day two of our Sneaky Peek week and the Cat Pack's giving you a preview of the new Bloom stamp set. Yes, the bunny's back--and this time, he's bringing a bouquet full of springy flowers!
I used this week's SCS sketch challenge as the basis for my card. The bouquet-bearing bunny is colored with Copic markers and cut out. It doesn't show well in the photo, but the center of each flower's dotted with just a bit of glitter for a fun sparkle. I arranged him on a pair of layered notch-edged strips (it took me what seemed like forever to get these cut and lined up evenly . . .) using some foam tape.
I covered the rose cardfront with a pretty floral patterned paper to match the colors of the bunny's bouquet. In keeping with the flower theme, I cut a piece of white cardstock with the pretty CutUps Lacy Floral Doily die and set that on the cardfront, then added the notch-edged strip with the bunny on top.
The set's "bloom" sentiment is stamped on a rose cardstock strip to set it off from the pattern beneath it. I wrapped the end of the strip with some green baker's twine to add a little frilly touch to the design.
