Be Happy

Is this little guy cute, or what? I think he is just too adorable and I want to squeeze him! This cute bunny and two other bunny images along with four sentiments is part The Lucky Bunnies Cling Stamp Set currently being offered over at the Paper Garden Projects Store. The paper I used is from Basic Grey's Ambrosia collection. Isn't it gorgeous? I love the bold colors. The 6x6 pad has printed paper as well as solid sheets. It's all just so yummy. I decided to paper piece this card instead of coloring it for a change. I know, I always color, but today I felt like piecing. It's so relaxing to me to cut out pieces and glue them down. If you don't know what paper piecing is, I'll tell you. It's very simple. You stamp your image on whatever cardstock or paper you choose and then cut it out. You stamp your main image into your paper and then glue down your pieces. Simple! I cut out the gold circle with my Marvy circle punch and stamped the image so that the balloon hung over the edge. I cut the black scallop out of a Nestability die. I paper pieced the image and then adhered the circles together and used pop dots to raise the scalloped circle from the background. The background is two pieces of BG cardstock with a black ribbon adhered at the junction. I stamped the Be Happy sentiment from the stamp set on the background paper. That's it!
