Love is in the Air Blog Hop

Welcome to Day 1 of the Love is in the Air Blog Hop, brought to you by the card design team from Red Carpet Studio!

This weekend the Red Carpet Studio design team would like to share with you love-themed projects to inspire you during this Valentine's Day season. Throughout the hop you'll see a variety of projects and we hope one or more of these wonderful creations inspire you to create. :-)

If you've come from Candice's blog, you're in the right place. If you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, please visit Red Carpet Studio.

For today's hop I made...

This little bunny stamp is my husbands favourite.  He finds him funny.  I think he's cute.  (Both the bunny and my husband.  LOL)  Here's how I made it.  I die cut the hearts, stamping the bunny on the white one.  I coloured in the bunny with my Spectrum Noir markers then attached the hearts to a white panel.  Layered that on the red patterned paper and attached to white card base.  I stamped the sentiment, added the button with some twine and then the rhinestones.  The sentiment is part of a bigger stamp but I just inked up the words.  

Supplies: Card Stock:  (white) Recollections, Patterned paper:  (pink heart from Dear Lizzy Neopolitan collection) American Crafts, (red) Stampin' Up!, wood stamps:  (sentiment) Craft Smart, (bunny) Stamp Craft, button came from Michaels, rhinestones from the Dollerama, and the twine was given to me in a card exchange.  Heart die cuts done with The Slice digital die cutter using Basics 1 design card.
