Cinnamon with Bunnies

I have another card for CC Designs to share with you today.
This stamp is called Cinnamon with Bunnies and these three are so adorable aren't they?!

I coloured them with Copics and used the Rectangles #1 Die to cut them out.
Then I white embossed the sentiment from the Sweet Spring Sentiments set and cut it out with the Layering Tags Die.

It is such a cute image and I thought it went perfectly with this Bella Blvd paper from the Sweet Baby Girl Collection.  And then I added a trio of pink buttons for even more cuteness :)

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges :

Send a smile for kids : Animal cards
Word Art Wednesday : anything goes with a sentiment
Southern Girls Challenge : dieing to see you
Simon Says Stamp : use more than 1 die or punch

Sweet Bunny

I have another cutie from the new CC Designs release to share with you today :)
This one is called Sweet Bunny.
And she is adorable isn't she?!

I actually stamped the bunny in Adirondack Espresso die ink.
I always use memento tuxedo black when colouring with copics but I had been thinking for a while that I should buy a brown colour as well.  Then I was searching through some old crafty stuff and found this pad from years and years ago and it worked beautifully still. I'm so glad I found this in my crafty stash!  It's amazing what you can find if you actually look :) 
I coloured her with Copics and cut her out and then placed her on a Scalloped Circle diecut.
I made the banner using the Make a Banner die, but I made it longer.
The hugs and kisses are from the Make a Card #12 Smoochies Die and the sentiment is from the Celebrate stamp set.
Paper is Love you madly by Glitz

Copics used :
E 41, 43, 44
R 000, 00, 20, 22, 24, 30

I have something a little different to share today.
I decided to use the super cute Roberto's Rascals Leprechaun stamp to create a tag for a sweet gift.

He's so adorable isn't he?!  
I also used the Lucky Rainbow Sentiments to emboss the word "lucky".
And I used the Layering Tags Die too.

I bought a bucket of M&M's and collected the colours and arranged them in the bottle to make a rainbow.

I thought it would make a great gift with a little note on the back saying how lucky we are to have such a great teacher.

Umbrella Cinnamon

I have another new stamp from CC Designs to share today.
This is Umbrella Cinnamon and she's having lots of fun splashing in puddles :)

My girls love these Cinnamon stamps!
My youngest said "She's so lovely but why do you always colour her in yellow?"
I hadn't realised I was! But I had a good excuse this time anyway.
"Because she's in a raincoat!"
Obviously raincoats can be any colour, but yes I coloured her with yellow.

So I took a look back through my cards to see if she was right.
The results were :
4 Cinnamon cards = 2 yellow, 2 other
So it depends how you look at it I guess, like a glass half full or half empty type thing :)

My colour and paper choices were also inspired by the mood board challenge at Scrapbook Boutique.
It's a board full of summery/beachy images.  So not like this stamp at all BUT it has lots of yellow beach umbrellas and yellow swimsuits against a cloudy blue sky. The quote on the board is perfect too!
So I made this image fit :)

Ingredients :
Stamps :Umbrella CinnamonLittle Pixie - Sunshine
Card : x-press it, suede, Homegrown (Pebbles), Oxford Lane (MME)
Ink : memento black, versamark
Other : white ep, Tilda lace die (Magnolia), copics

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges :

Word Art Wednesday -  anything goes with a sentiment
