Lemon Builder Punch Bunny and Fox Builder Punch Bunny

Hi Stampers,

I hope you haven't fretted over not having a bunny stamp to make your easter projects. I have been playing AGAIN with my Lemon Builder punch. This time I came up with a bunny. I also played with the Fox Builder punch and came up with a smaller bunny!!!

Here are the pieces you need for the Lemon Builder punch bunny. The circle is the 1" circle punch--you will need 2. One for the head and one cut in half for each of the feet.




Here are the pieces you need for the Fox Builder punch bunny. The circle is a 3/4" circle.




I hope this inspires you in some way. I love showing how versatile Stampin' Up! products are and I hope this turns the light bulb on for you!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!



DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #274-We Must Celebrate


Hi Stampers,

Back for a DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge Product Spotlight. We are to use any critter image. When I first saw this stamp set it went to the top of my want list. I think the animals are so cute. A lot of stampers have cut the animal image apart to use the animals separately which is what I did with the bunny.

I need a few Easter cards to send to my grandchildren and this fit the bill perfectly. I finally used one of my blends too-Pink Pirouette. Boy, do they ever color nicely!!! I also came up with another use for the "pineapple" punch from the Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack--a carrot!! And, if you haven't used the Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon--OMGosh this is so pretty--shiny and silky. Stampin' Up! always produces superb quality items.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #223-My Hero


Hi Stampers,

This week's challenge is a sketch pad. I was making this sketch WAY to hard. I left the table and came back and VOILA!!! I stress myself out for no reason. LOL I can't wait to see what the other STARS came up with!!




I love the bright colors I used. Who doesn't like bright colors for Easter eggs? My Hero stamp set is perfect for the holidays. It is a very versatile set. Also, to make the eggs I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch and just cut the tail of the balloon off after I punched.


Stamp Set: My Hero

Ink: Melon Mambo

Paper: Emerald Envy, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Festive Birthday DSP

Accessories: Big Shot, Stitched Framelits, paper trimmer, Melon Mambo ribbon, dimensionals, SNAIL, rhinestones, Balloon Bouquet Punch, glue dots






DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #221-Cookie Cutter Easter


Hi Stampers,

We are having a Home Sweet Home challenge. The chocolate looks great doesn't it? My eyes were on the peeps. Growing up, I got these suckers every year in my Easter basket and every year I complained I didn't like them!!! LOL Anyways, I guess they kind of reminded me of my childhood so that is where the inspiration came from. HOWEVER, I do not own the Basket Bunch in the Occasions catalog. (I know, shocker, right?) So I got creative and created my "own" peeps out of the Cookie Cutter punch. All you do is punch whatever color you want and trim the sides off with scissors. Easy, peasy!!! I dipped the end of my stylus in Basic Black ink for the eyes and nose. Doesn't get much easier than that!!!




I removed 2-1/4" from the top of the card.



Stamp Set: Labeler Alphabet, Cookie Cutter Christmas

Ink: Basic Black, Crushed Curry

Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Cucumber Crush, Soft Sky, Whisper White

Accessories: Cookie Cutter Punch, scissors, dimensionals, fringe scissors, SNAIL
