Tilda Hugging Bunny for The Next Level AND Some Celebration Sweet Stuff!!!!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope that your weekend was special indeed and that you are starting a marvelous week!

I am so thrilled to have been asked to be the Guest Designer this week at The Next Level joining with Ann and Dawn and their fabulously talented Design Team to create a card using the following sketch with the image being decoupaged/3D. Gosh!! The words Designer and design make me very nervous as I certainly don't see myself as designing anything...I just cut and glue until it looks kinda RIGHT!!! LOL nervously!!! Nevertheless, my sincere thanks to Ann and Dawn for the confidence you have in my work to ask me to serve in this capacity this week. I hope you will visit The Next Level and join with us this week. I would love to see your interpretation of the sketch and your 3D image!!

Although I am using Tilda Hugging Bunny, available at Magnolia-licious from the Easter Collection 2009, this card is a special request to be given to a special lady's SIL who owns a bunny. I was sent pictures of the bunny for coloration -- yes, the bunny is dark on the bottom half, light on the top half, and has ONE dark eye-- and of the recipient for her proper hair color. And, yes, the lady has pierced ears!! lol...I hope that I have met all of the specs along those lines and that the recipient will enjoy it.

I used Bazill CS for the card base, PTI Spring Rain and Sweet Blush CS for all matting, the dotted DP is from the Bitty Dot Basics pad from PTI, and the remaining DP is from Papermania Signature Collection Blueberry Hill. I used a zigzag stitch this time to match the white cotton picot trim on the back dotted circle. For the front circle I cut a circular frame from chipboard and wrapped it with a pink variegated braid trim then attached a Cryogen White background. I then stamped the image 4 times and colored with Copics and cut them out. I also used Diamond Stickles on the wings. The first 2 images were used in their entirety. The next image was just Tilda, and the last image was just part of the shirt and wings. I hope you can detect the 3 (actually 4 lol) dimensional effect in the following picture. To complete the image panel I added white polka dots to Tilda's shirt with a Signo to match the dotted DP and added a tiny pink pearl for the earring.

To complete the sketch requirements I added a computer generated sentiment on Spellbinders label with the same pink braid, tied on a gold bunny with cording (shown in the first picture), added 2 Prima Trellis Roses which I dotted with Glossy Accents for a dewy effect, and finally added larger pink pearls to the corners. And here is the inside....if your name is Pam or Niblet, this card just may be coming to YOU!!!!
I used coordinating DP from the same Blueberry Hill paper pack, additional braid, another Spellbinder label with "Pam & Niblet", flowers from Crafty Feeling, a gold heart charm, a Bow-Easy bow trimmed with pink pearls, additional cotton picot trim, and a few scattered pearls. I wanted the jotting place to look kinda like a little bunny hutch. So Diana, how did I do???? Hope your SIL really likes her surprise!!!!

Gosh, I have so much to CELEBRATE on my 3 Month anniversary of having a blog in Cyberia--it is more than I can fathom or believe!!! I have made so many wonderful friends all over the world and have learned so much from all of you!! I am so humbled that in these 3 short months that I have 139 Followers, that I have had more than 22,000 visitors, that I was asked by Kelly at KL Stampin n Scrappin to be a Guest Designer, that I was given a Design Team position by Diana at Magnolia-licious, that I was selected from many talented artists to be on the Design Team for Friday Sketchers, that I was selected to be Guest Designer at The Next Level this week---and the list goes on and on. To show my sincere appreciation for each of you and to celebrate my birthday on July 22, I am offering the following "SWEET STUFF":

Bella Brush Stamp Set of 33 stamps by Fancy Pants
EK Success Heart Stitch Punch
EK Success Love Corner Punch
EK Success Corbel Corner Adorner
We R Memory Keepers Pewter Alphabet
American Crafts WINK Ribbon Set
Prima Brown Ribbon Stax

Basic Grey Lemonade Paper Pad and Brads and Matching Ribbons
Basic Grey June Bug Paper Pad and Brads and Matching Ribbons
3 packs of Coordinating Element Buttons
Natural Raffia Lace
K&Company Wedding Pearl Brads
K&Company Heart Gems
Miscellaneous Charms

All I am asking is for you to leave a comment here, that you become a follower, that you mention and link my "Sweet Stuff" on your blog if you have one, that you think about the many reasons you have to celebrate, and that you come back to visit me often!!! I will randomly select a winner on Thursday, July 23 at 8 PM EST since I will be gone to Atlantic City for my birthday. Woohooooooooo!! Any success that I have had is because of each of you and the help you have given me over these 3 short months!! My sincere thanks to each of you!! Hugs and more hugs!!!

Note: I didn't design the sketch...I just cut and pasted the card

Hi Jacque, My friend Barb Hardeman said to check out your blog and I wish I had a bigger font to write W O W !!! Your Safari Edwin is so wonderful. I think it will take me a few hours of studying it to take in the wonderful colors, cs, layers, embellishments, etc. Terrific!
I am not sure how to add you to my side bar. but will ask hubby "how to" since he is my resident computer person. I have a blog but not much on it as I am just not at ease with all the linking, and things required by some to participate. Must be the gray hair saps the two brain cells I am working with. LOL But I will do the best I can and hope I can find where to look to see if I was even in the win list. Keep up the great crafting. I love the Tildas and Edwin images and have looked at the Magnolia-licious site but can't seem to find the catalog of what is available. Would love to try them although I don't have Copic markers yet. They are on my wish list for Christmas. Thanks for sharing. God bless you.

Hi Jacque - my birthday was this month too - #30 - but I haven't gotten my candy together yet. :) I get to celebrate every day - I have a beautiful, happy, healthy little girl and a DH who loves me! I love the Tilda with Bunny card - so cute and detailed! I've linked you on my sidebar and I was already a follower.

Martha said...

Jacque, this is my second comment as I realized I commentewd on your Edwin safari card and I should have commented on the lovely and sweet Tilda with the wrapped frame. It is so spectacular and frames the sweet Tilda to perfection.I have signed on as a follower and will recive your site from feedblitz but haven't found the link so I can qualify for a chance at your blog candy. Can you help? Keep up the great ideas and cards. Congratulations on the new positions and kudos. Your talent speaks volumes to everyone who see your work. Thanks and I WILL be back! : )
