For my card today, I'm showing off these adorable bunnies in the brand new Hip Hop Hooray clear stamp set! I just want to squeeze them! I told my husband we should get a pet bunny, but he didn't think that was a great idea...what a party pooper.

I've got a video of this bunny doing his Action Wobble/BOING BOING thing on my Instagram HERE if you're interested!

There's a lot going on here with today's project - it was so much fun to create! I started by cutting my large Smile Scalloped frame die out of Neenah Solar white cardstock and setting it aside. I also cut a piece of Neenah Solar white cardstock the same size as the outside border of the die so I could use it to create my background. 

I flipped the frame piece over and used it as the outside mask for my background. I knew I was going to add the film strip at an angle, so I masked off a central line to break up the grass and sky using some scrap paper. Using my Beautiful Blender Brushes, I placed Distress Oxide ink (Tumbled Glass over the entire top background panel. Then I used Stormy Sky with the Lots of Love stencil from Taylored Expressions to add the hearts, fading it out toward the edges. I switched the mask to the other side and repeated with Mowed Lawn ink directly onto the cardstock, layered with the Wave Drift Pattern stencil from Gina Marie Designs and Peeled Paint ink over the top. The blender brushes put the ink on as smooth as silk!!

After I was done using the back of my frame as a mask, I ran it through my Big Shot with the Tiny Dots embossing folder to give a little more character to it.

Images are all colored with Copic markers and cut out with my Scan n Cut. For the Film Strip, I do have an OLD Sizzix die, but it wasn't quite the right shape for my purposes here, so I went online and found some clip art that I could resize to work with my layout. Then I cut it with my Scan N Cut. It's added to the card base using foam squares.

Once everything was all colored, dolled up, and cut, I started adding it to my card base and polka dot background panel. I'm normally COMPLETELY ALLERGIC to stuff being put on my cards "crooked", but I really think it adds some fun and whimsy to this scene to do it that way. I offset the background panel, the frame, and the bunnies as they hop on and off camera to move your eyes across the entire card. I've used foam squares/foam tape in varying depths from 1/16 to 3/16" across the card to give extra depth. Full supply list with links can be found at the end of this post. 

I hope you enjoyed my project today. If you've got a moment, head over to join our FB communityfollow us on Instagram, and don't forget to play along with our monthly challenges by tagging #timeforteadesigns - so easy! Thanks for stopping by!
