Float like a float-bunny

Good morning! I'm excited about the reading tonight from Passager's new book celebrating 21 years of publishing. I've worked with the editors for about 8 of those years, and I know form personal experience how super-incredible the reading will be. If you live in Baltimore, check it out.

I just spent a few minutes traipsing through the creative wonders of the Designer Dymonz. They're having a candy-filled Blop Hop today, so you might want to grab another cup of coffee and take a little journey yourself.

And if you haven't signed up for my blog candy yet, there's still time!

I had so much fun with the Airplane Rabbit from Zlatoena Designs that I made a couple of projects with another of her images, this adorable Parachute Rabbit.

My first card, on the right, was made for a couple of challenges that I never entered it in. It's fun, tho! The parachute part was printed on vellum, colored with Copics, and them covered in Glossy Accents. It's so much fun to touch! The rabbit is covered with yellow flocking, and I added pink heat-embossing on the nose and tail.

I designed the card shapes in SCAL and cut it on my Cricut, which made sizing the layers very simple.
I used 2 patterned papers, including a pre-embossed piece from Smirk. It's cute, but maybe too busy...Oh well, it's terribly cute.

I whipped up the flap card on the left just for fun, and as you can tell I had lots of fun!

I stamped and heat-embossed the clouds (with silver, of course!) and then filled them with Glossy Accents. Love that stuff! The rabbit's nose and the sentiment are also heat embossed, in pink and blue respectively.

If you're wondering about the post title, it's a bad pun of a bad pun from Futurama (punning the famous Muhammad Ali quote), added to make my husband smile. Can't think of a better reason!
