I did find time yesterday to get into my craft room and make a Bugs Bunny to share with you. So let's just jump in and get started.
I started with a base card of Daffodil Delight cut at 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2". I added a layer of Basic Black to this with runner adhesive. It is cut to be 4 1/8" x 5 3/8", The final layer of the card is a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" Tempting Turquoise. I ran this piece through the big shot using the chevron impression folder. On the raised chevron lines, I used my 2 way glue pen to add glue and then sprinkled on an aqua glitter. I wanted to make the background pop a little and thought this would be a way to do it. I attached it to the black using runner adhesive.
The greeting is from a stamp set I bought years ago at a craft store. I stamped it using Tempting Turquoise ink onto Whisper White. I then cut it out using the framelits itty bitty banners set and the big shot. I used a pencil to curl the center and the edges of it and attached it to the card using glue dots.
Now for the star himself. The colors of card stock I use to make my guy are Brushed Silver, Melon Mambo, Bravo Burgundy, Whisper White and Basic Black. You can use a gray card stock for him but I like the look of the silver. The base piece of his head is a 3" circle which I cut out with my big shot and 3" circle die. I trimmed the sides in at an angle and made the top hair by snipping out little parts. I traced the edge of the hair with a black marker to highlight it. Here is list of punches used to make the rest of him:
Ears - large oval punch; you will need 2 silver or gray for each ear
Pink inside of Ears - full heart punch; I cut it in half and trimmed it to round the edges
Eyes - the retired small oval punch; you will need one white and one silver or gray for each eye; you could trim the large oval down if you do not have the retired small one
Black of Eyes - word window punch
Cheeks - wide oval punch; you will need 2
Chin - 1 inch circle punch
Mouth - wide oval punch; trim it to narrow on each side
Teeth - 1 inch square punch; I offset it from the card stock so that it punched a smaller rectangle
Piece above Teeth - 3/4" circle and curly label punch; punch out a curly label and set it aside. You will not use it. Then offset the 3/4" circle from the curly label hole and punch again. If you do not have the curly label punch, you can punch a 3/4" circle and cut a little bigger that half. Add the small indentation in the center and your all set.
Nose - the retired small oval punch; you will use only the tip of it for this. If you do not have this, you can used a 1/2" circle in its place.
And there you have it. I attached all pieces together using my 2 way glue pen. Once everything was attached, I used a fine tip black marker to draw the lines above the nose and the one down the teeth. I attached the completed bunny to the card using dimensionals.
I hope you can understand and use my directions for him. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I am so happy I have finally made this fellow to share with all of you.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend and I will be back on Monday with another card for you to see. Thanks for dropping by today!!!!
