Easter Bunny Punch Art Belly Bands

Happy Easter, Christ is Risen! I pray, today, is a wonderful Easter for you celebrate the true meaning of Easter, as well as, spend it with your loved ones. I have not been the happiest camper because we had to cancel our family get together. I decided to come down with some kind of bug early in the morning yesterday and my husband also about 12 hours later. To try to not pass it on, we chose to cancel. Of course, I feel better now, but I am not sure how long you can be carrying the germs. Better safe than sorry.
Today, I am sharing with you a couple of bunny belly bands I created for my grandson's Bibles. They were created using punches and a Big Shot. I have a few pictures I am going to show you. The first pictures I took I had forgotten to put the whiskers on the bunnies. I remembered when I looked at the picture where I got my inspiration from to make these, Pinterest, of course, found here.

  The picture above was from before I glued them onto the belly band.

The picture above is when I still had not remembered to add the whiskers. I do believe it made quite a bit of difference.

Above, is the final result. What I think really made these turn out so well, was adding the sponging around the edges of the Baked Brown Sugar Cardstock. It gives it depth. I love using the sponge!

These are all of the Stampin' Up! products you would need to create these cute little guys.
Cardstock: Watercolor Wonder DSP, Marina Mist, Baked Brown Sugar, Garden Green, and Whisper White
Classic Ink: Early Espresso
Tools: Big Shot, Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, Oval and Circle Framelits, 2 1/2" Circle Punch, Large Oval Punch, Boho Blossom Punch, Owl Builder Punch, 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch, and Stampin' Sponge, Basic Gray Stampin' Write Marker, and Fringe Scissors
Accessories: Subtles Candy Dots

Monkey Bib Card

Welcome everyone! I pray you have been having a wonderful time since I last posted. I am so glad it is beginning to warm up outside. I love hearing the birds tweeting outside when I first wake up in the morning. I believe, spring is finally here.
Today, I am sharing with you a card I made as a sample for someone that is going to make invitations for a baby shower. She wanted them to have a monkey theme. I personally do not own any stamp sets with a monkey in them. I told her the only thing I knew to do was use punches. As you can see by the attached picture, that is what I did. I searched on Pinterest for some ideas of how other people had created their monkeys from punches. I used different ideas off of different ones to come up with mine.

These are the Stampin' Up! supplies you would need to create this card.
Cardstock: Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green, Early Espresso, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Ink: Stampin' Write Marker Early Espresso
Tools: Big Shot, Circles Collection Framelits, 3 1/2" and 1" Circle Punches, Extra-Large Oval Punch, Full Heart Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Owl Builder Punch (circles), and lastly, Little Leaves Sizzlits
Accessories: Neutrals Candy Dots and Early Espresso 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon

To be quite honest with you, I would not have chosen Daffodil Delight for the bib, but the lady showed me the crib set that was going to be purchased and these were the colors used in it.
Thank you for looking and have a great week.

Now go-n-stamp!!
