Hammered Metal Bunny

Well, it's almost Easter and I wanted to make something.  I was inspired by this new embossing powder Emerald Creek Crafts Supplies just released... Hammered Metal.  So of course that means Easter!  
Or in this case Hammered Metal Bunny Bags.

I started with a bunch of my dies, movers and shapers, thinlits and magnetic plate.


I cut the bunnies out with mat board then inked with seedless preserves distress spray.  Then I added my Hammered Metal powder.  I added 2 coats of powder.


I really wanted to play with the new Hammered Metal embossing powder.  Look how yummy this is... so thick!!!



I cut the In the Bag bags using Kraft Paper then stamped with the Graph background stamp.  Check out these metal bunnies!


Once the bags are built I inked the edges with ground espresso distress ink.  The handwritten celebrate words are cut with Sizzix Watercolor pattern paper and inked with wilted violet.


I wanted to try my distress crayon seedless preserve on ribbon and see the effect.  I added a strip of colour down the center.  To get it to feather out I used a baby wipe and rubbed.


Check out how cute these are and simple.


By stamping the bag it helps break us the colour and adds a layer.


When you add 2 it gets super thick!  You can see the little pops of seedless preserves coming through.  This little guy looks almost like liquid.


Stuff with Easter treats and tie it off.


Check out Hammered Metal HERE at Emerald Creek.

I hope this quick project gives you some ideas for whipping something fun up.

Lets play...

Frilly and Funkie- Hip to be Square (bright colours)
A Vintage Journey- (Mat Board, purple, metal effect)
Anything But Cute- Crazy for Colour- (purples)
Creative Carte Blanche- Triple Trouble (metal bunny, graph stamp, sentiment)

  5. Aw, these are so cute!! I think you might have gotten a little confused for Creative Carte Blanche - our challenge was corrugated, metal and lace. But these little bunnies are fun anyway. :-)

Liberty

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Make Over

Please be patient while my team and I (guys pictured below) rebuild my blog.

Due to unforeseen and sudden non communicated policy changes (by a certain online image hosting website) I have had to remove a lot of content I have built for my blog.  At some point my blog had a major system failure causing me to rebuild and start over.  Boo

Please note this change will not be "lipstick on a pig" and all future content will be AWESOME.  In the coming months I will be making adjustments to provide some of the best crafty eye candy out there.  YAY!


Thank you for your continued support, love and all around awesomeness!
And thanks a lot...
