It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month...Have Hope!

Happy Monday! 
Bunny here sharing a card for those strong survivors out there!
We all know them, they are friends, family, coworkers, people we are in contact with every day.
They are strong warriors fighting a horrible illness.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and I wanted to share a card to make sure you 
get your mammograms each year and self check every month!
HERE is an informative link from the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

On to my card, Jillian designed this die last year. It can be used in all colors for all cancers any time of the year.

I added the center heart heat embossed with WOW Embossing Powder in is way more gorgeous in person than any photo I could get!

We are thrilled and honored that next Monday, October 21st, we will be having a Collaboration Blog Hop with the WOW Embossing Design Team!  Be sure and check it out then!

Rustic Christmas Card!

Happy Monday, Bunny here! 
So you have probably already noticed, that I love to use black and kraft papers, they just work so well together and show off this pretty cardinal too!
So many things about this card remind me of my dad. He was a logger and timber man and loved feeding the birds and building them houses. One summer he built several that my mom and Jillian painted! 
We are blessed to have come from a crafty, artistic family. 

This card would make a great Christmas card that looks more complicated than it really is.
Houndstooth is such a classic design and also makes a great stencil. Any of Jillian's cover plates can be cut and used as stencils so dual duty! She has also lowered her cover plate prices to a very affordable, $21.95.
The Rustic Wood Slice and pine does give the rustic, homey feel of winter! The sentiment is stamped with Catherine Pooler Midnight Ink from the Cardinals Appear Stamp Set.
Thanks for stopping by today! Enjoy your week!

Thankful Autumn Pumpkin

Hello Happy Monday! Bunny here and I can't believe this is the last week in August!
But I think fall is a favorite season of mine where the air is crisp and leaves are beautiful!

Today I have an easy water color pumpkin card over on the AJVD Blog!

Using the Autumn Pumpkin Stamp Set and my MISTI, I stamped and embossed using WOW Embossing Ink, and Wow Embossing Powder in Primary Black, then water colored using Catherine Pooler Inks, Tim Holtz Detailer Water Brush and Ranger Watercolor Paper shown below.  I started with the Tiki Torch and kept layering on with Orange Twist and then Mandarin Spice.

Check out the rest of the details HERE!

It's a Nativity CARD!

Hello, Bunny here, so what did you think of the new release?
I love it ALL!!! There is still time to enter to win, so start with Tracey's post on Tuesday HERE and follow along until Saturday's post for the Rafflecopter giveaways at the bottom of each post!

Today, I am showing how the Nativity Bookmark can be used for a card as well!

I took the Checkerboard Cover Plate and cut it along one of the vertical lines to create a panel to cover half the card, then added Fresh Cut Pine and  Layered Poinsettia using the Poinsettia Die Set that is a classic and can also be cut in yellows to make a fall sunflower!
I embossed the Nativity Bookmark with Wow Primary Black Embossing Powder using Wow Embossing Ink. 
Pretty simple and you could mass produce them but cutting one Checkerboard Cover Plate for every 2 cards!
Have a Blessed Sunday!
