Happy Black Friday! I’ve got links to lots of sales, promos, and crafty shopping opportunities here and I’ll continue to update it all weekend long! Plus check out a special Thanksgiving giveaway here! And I’m also hopping along for Ellen Hutson’s 11th Anniversary and there are BIG giveaways up for grabs! 😉
Good morning and happy Black Friday! 😉 Today I’m excited to join a few friends for a surprise bloghop to celebrate Purple Onion Designs! I actually discovered the adorable critters of Purple Onion Designs two Black Fridays ago so it seems kinda like kismet to be hopping for them today! 😉 Before we get to today’s card just a couple of things to mention…first off, there’s a 25% off sale on all stamps over at Purple Onion Designs so make sure you stop by and do a little post-holiday shopping! Second, in celebration of the hop, Sandy Allnock is giving away spots in a class of their choice to 3 lucky commenters along the bloghop – so be sure to comment everywhere! If the winner has already purchased a class during the current sale, that class fee can be refunded. Winner will be posted on Sandy’s blog on December 1st, 2017. Good luck!
So, here’s what I created:
I love all the little details of the adorable critters so I wanted to keep the background really clean and simple. I started by stamping the Birch bunny on white cardstock with copic-friendly ink and then colored him with copic markers. I used the ScanNCut to cut him out and then added accents with a white gel pen and a spectrum noir clear sparkle brush pen.
Then I blended tumbled glass, peacock feathers, and salty ocean distress ink onto a piece of bristol smooth cardstock. I splattered it with water and copic opaque white paint to give the look of a snowy sky. I tore white cardstock to create snowy hills and adhered them together. I stamped the sentiment on the top hill and heat-embossed it with silver embossing powder. I adhered the hills over the distress inked background and finished the card with just a trio of sequins and snowflakes.
I really think the simple background allows the bunny to shine! 🙂 Anyway, it’s time to get hopping! Sonja is your next stop on the hop! Remember, leave comments on all the stops for the most chances to win! Good luck and happy hopping!
