Bo Bunny May Sketch LO Challenge

The unbelievably talented Rita Shimniok provided us with this 2 page sketch for the May Challenge over at Bo Bunny:

We were allowed to create a one or two page layout based on the sketch, and I decided to go with a one pager. I chose the Jazmyne line from Bo Bunny to compliment my pictures along with the Double Dot cardstock with is my all time favorite item in the Bo Bunny product line.

I also used Black Bo Bunny Chunky Chips Alpha Stickers which I painted green... then spritz with gold glitter spray for a really cool effect. I did the same with an ivory Chunky Charms flourish. The results turned out spectacular!

Notice the handcut detail along the left side of the layout and how the focal picture is nestled into the glittered flower work. This set of papers is just beautiful.
Here is a closeup of the painted/gold glimmer sprayed letters:

Thanks for taking a peek!

May Card Sketch Challenge

Here is the Card Sketch for the May Challenge over at Bo Bunny. It was created by the talented Juliana Michaels. I created my card using the Flutter Butter line, Double Dot and Abbey Road. Don't you love when multiple collections can come together on one project? That's one of the things I love so much about Bo Bunny - their lines really blend together well.

I used multiple tools to create this card. I used a spellbinder scalloped square die, a scalloped border punch and Tim Holtz (Sizzix) flower die for the fabulous rose in the center.

Here's the card:
Now for a closeup of the rose. I cut the flower die 5 times to create the rose. I inked the edges with distress inks. They take some time to create - but the end result is really worth the effort!

Bo Bunny "Mom Themed Layout"

In honor of Mother's Day I accepted the Bo Bunny challenge to create a layout with the theme of Mothers. I used pictures from this years Mother's day celebration that we had at our house. I am lucky enough to have both my Mom and my Mother-in-law live close by and we enjoyed breakfast cooked by my fabulous husband!

I created the layout using the Mama-Razzi line by Bo Bunny.

I treated the flower and the stamped camera with Crackle Accents by Inkssentials for a little extra texture and think they turned out pretty neat!
