Bunny Koala? - Stampin' Up! Bonanza Buddies

  Quarantine or not things always get started later for our family on Saturdays!  I usually don't blog on the weekends but with all that's happening and having so much extra time in my stamp room I have plenty of projects to share these days.  And since I've been doing mostly challenges I want to get them posted before the challenge ends. BC (Before Covid) I would do a lot of challenges but never was able to get them photographed and posted in time.  So I feel that I am doing ok on being consistent in these uncertain times!

  My card today is a color challenge over at Color Throwdown.  They use generic color shades so I used kraft, Blushing Bride, Petal Pink, Pear Pizzazz, Smoky Slate and Basic Gray for my project.

This is a variation of my Bunny Pig card from last week.  I was just so tickled at the little bunny ears with the daisy punch that when I saw the colors for this challenge I figured I could do a koala with bunny ears also.  I used a lot of different supplies for this card and really enjoyed using some older dies as well as the retired Kraft paper that SU carried a few years ago to complete my little Easter scene.

  First the background is the Breathtaking Bouquet stamp from the Mini catalog.  I stamped it in Versamark and then embossed it with clear embossing powder.  It's a really cool look and adds some nice subtle texture.

  The egg die cut is from the Dino dies.  I cut 2 halves and lightly sponged the edges with Smoky Slate for definition. A Pear Pizzazz shimmer ribbon knot decorates the side of the egg.  The flower stem and blossoms are cut with the Bouquet Bunch dies.  The flower centers all have a small adhesive pearl.

  The koala body is stamped in Smoky Slate and his face is Basic Gray.  The nose has a layer of Clear Wink of Stella for some shimmer.  The bunny ears are punched with the Daisy punch out of retired White Velvet paper and Blushing Bride ink and a blender pen are used to color the insides.

  The more I'm doing Easter cards with non-Easter stamp sets the more I think next year I'm going to have to get a real Easter set so as not to run out of ideas!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
