A popular rabbit!

by adele on November 14, 2010

It’s been some considerable time since I blogged and, boy, have I missed it! 

My absence hasn’t been because I’ve not been stamping or had nothing to share with you. Quite the opposite! I had a run of workshops which kept me very busy, but also life outside of stamping was demanding lots of my attention and energy. And the longer it got between blog posts, the harder it was to get back into it.

BUT  rather than proscrinate any longer (which I’m particularly good at), here I am back blogging.

Yesterday I went to the Stampin’ Up Melbourne Regional training day and it was so incredibly inspiring. Soooo many great ideas that I’ll be trying out soon. Today’s card is the one I took as my swap to Regionals. 

Do they look familiar? No prizes for guessing that my swap was inspired by the cover of the ‘Popular Penguin’ novels. And although there’s no ‘penguin’ on my ‘book cover’ I think  there’s enough of the iconic design of the cover to make it instantly recognisable.

There’s nothing difficult about this card – in fact, it’s super easy!

I scored an extra line with my bone folder to make it look like the card has a spine. The corners have been ‘dog eared’ and the edges of the Very Vanilla daubed with River Rock ink to make it look like a well loved book. The cute little rabbit stamp from the Forest Friends stamp set was my ‘penguin’ and I used the white gel pen to make it more like the logo you see on the books.

I know what card I’ll be sending out to all my book-lover friends!

All the products used to make these cards can be purchased through me.

Adele, these cards are AMAZING! I had to look twice to convince myself they weren’t the actual books. You are so clever!

Thanks Chris! I loved making them. Actually I bought the ‘On Your Birthday’ stamp set just to make this card – how nuts is that?!
