Quilled Rabbit Cards

By Ann Martin @allthingspaper
Ahhh, I love this time of year... the days are warming up, tulips are in bloom, and birds are nesting. It's a nice time to be a quiller as chicks, ducklings, and bunnies are fun to translate into paper.
Quilled Rabbit Cards
I made this card for the Custom Quilling newsletter and enjoyed creating the polished stone background. There's nothing like a good play session that involves mixing drops of re-inkers (small bottles of ink used to renew stamp pads) with rubbing alcohol on glossy white paper. Here's a link to a tutorial by Beate Johns of Splitcoaststampers fame. The paper truly winds up looking like marble if you use a few drops of metallic ink... I just wish my camera had captured the shine so you could get the full effect.
This next card shows the same chubby rabbit, but it features a quilled tulip instead of a folded flower. Just some ideas in case you're in need of an Easter greeting to send... be quick like a bunny and hop to it though - Sunday will be here before we know it!

By the way, is my family the only one to wish one another good luck on the first day of each month by saying rabbit-rabbit? The unwritten rule is that it has to be the very first thing said that morning. Of course we usually don't think of it, but it's pretty fun when one of us actually remembers!
One last thing for today... the Creative Paper Cutting book giveaway winners were announced on Saturday. Congrats again to Eva and The Bees Knees. Even if you didn't win this time around, there's another giveaway coming up next week. Crazy, right? But true!
