Holiday Card Ideas! featuring Carousel Christmas with Denise

Hello Everyone!

It's Denise here today, to share some Christmas Cards using the fabulous Carousel Christmas collection. I made these two, oversized  festive cards.  On thing I love about this collection is the vintage feel, and the non-traditional color scheme.  Something about those two things, really speaks to me and brings out the creative in me!

I fussy cut some of the gorgeous elements and then layered them up, for pretty clustering. On the first card I added some twine on the cinnamon cluster, to give it some dimension.

For the second card, I made some little white flowers, with pearl centres. Again, I layered up die-cut pieces and fussy cut elements for the design. I used some Pearlescent on the leaf edges too, to give it a snowy effect.

A Festive Christmas Card Duo featuring Carousel Christmas with Emmy


Hello BoBunny fans!

Emmy here today with a brand new creation to share with you. And because it is almost Christmas I've prepared some more Christmas cards featuring the lovely Carousel Christmas collection.




And here are some close ups and a few tips and tricks of my steps to creating these cards.




I used a lot of different pattern papers to create the layers and the embellishments on my cards. I pierced and ruffled the edges of my base pattern paper layer and then I adhered it to the card base using mounting foam tape.






I die cut snowflakes, frames and the title for one of my cards using BoBunny dies and Double Dot cardstock.









As a final touch I added just a few little smears of Glitter Paste and different coloured rhinestones to give these cards a frosty effect..

DIY Yearly Calendar featuring On This Day with Angela


Hello Everyone,

It's Angela with you today sharing an easy DIY calendar using the fabulous On This Day BoBunny new collection.

This is a pretty idea as Christmas gift or as a present for your guests New Year's Eve.

DIY 2018 Calendar by Angela Tombari using BoBunny On This Day Collection


This is a very simple project, the last minute project if you need it because it takes no more than 15 minutes total.

The papers are kept together using two jewel brads, but you could also use two rings.

I chose to write the numbers by hand, but if you prefer a more clear look, you can choose to use stamps instead.

The little snowman I've included on the calendar is a journaling card part of the On This Day in January paper. It was such a cutie pie for not being used, don't you agree?


Thanks for stopping by, see you soon!

Love,

NG

Altered Holiday Gift Tag Mini Album Project featuring Carousel Christmas with Angela


Hi Everyone,

Angela here with you today with a brand new mini album made of tags and a soft mixed media touch.

Mixed Media Tag Mini Album by Angela Tombari made with BoBunny Carousel Christmas Collection

Sometimes I love messing and mixing with colors and pastes, it's always amazing to see what it comes out....

The tags of the mini are made using the Carousel Christmas Ephemera Pack and are held together by two rings on the top left side.

I started spreading a touch of color on the tags and then I used a few stencils with white gesso.

When everything was dried, I stamped randomly using the It Is Written BoBunny stamp and embossed them with embossing powder.

I fussy cut a few frames, which are part of Carousel Christmas collection, one for each tag and on the back I adhered a piece of vellum.

On each frame, I stamped a word and white embossed it.

As a finishing touch, to give a romantic feeling, I added different laces I had in my stash.

Christmas Tree Ornaments featuring Carousel Christmas - with Ayumi

Hello BoBunny friends!! It's Ayumi here. 
Today I'll share with you Christmas Ornament using Carousel Christmas collection!  

Christmas Ornament by Ayumi Iwashita.


I prepared a clear glass ornament for this project.   I wanted to use a concave piece that I can add decorations and small elements inside.  I am using a Stickable Stencil here as pictured.  This is ideal for use on a round surface.  This stencil is thin and very pliable and also has a moderate adhesive on the backside to keep it in place as I apply the glitter paste.


I then prepared to use some Glitter Paste.


I will use Glitter Paste as a pattern on the whole ornament.
It looks lovely when it dries, and truly catches the light! Sparkly!

I added a decoration such as a pine cone.

Since it alone is not enough, I cut out the pattern paper and decorated it, along with some other teeny elements to add interest

The snowman is very cute!



I Hope you enjoyed the pictures of the project. just for fun I have included a video as well!  I hope you enjoyed the project today!




Enjoy your happy day.

Thank you.

Merry Christmas to All! Handmade Cards featuring FaLaLa with Marilyn



Hello everyone!!!  It's Marilyn here to share these textured Christmas cards that I created with different products by Bo Bunny, let's take a look...


I made two different backgrounds for the cards the first one I gave textures with the Deck The Halls Stickable Stencils and white gesso. In the second card,  I stamped with the Circular Textures Stamp and a white permanent ink. The paper is from the Double Dot Designs paper pad (6 x 6).


I did a little traick of tearing the paper to create the hill and make white paint splatters to give the snow effect.  The adorable Santa and the gifts are from the Santa and Friends stamp that I hand colored.


The Circular Textures Stamp gives nice textures on my card, I played with them to make this fun background.  I gave more textures with the Silver Confetti Paste and adhered some little gems.



Here's a simple version of my previous card, this one doesn't have the confetti but I made dots with the sugar Pearlescents.




I had a lot of fun creating these cards and I want to share with you how I made them.
