Bunnehlolograms

Need the exact opposite of winter about right now?

I have the cure. Bunneh geometry.

Why didn't they use things like this to teach us math? Do you REALLY think you would have forgotten a bunnehlologram on your final exam? I think not. I think the room would have been filled with smiling people with bunnies in their heads is what I think.


So now that you're all fuzzy and happy I have a little consumer tip for you.

I have been being tortured to death by a company called Red Plum.

DAILY I get snail mail spam from these people - a giant coupon publication the size of the Sunday New York Times, with loose postcards and assorted trash stuffed inside it so that it all falls all over the sidewalk when I pry it free from my mailbox to throw it in the garbage. It makes me insane. I've done return to sender (that doesn't work) and thrown away more than I can count. I wish Google controlled the mail. They do a much better job filtering junk than our friends in the white trucks.

So I finally found the secret rabbit hole you disappear down to remove yourself from their mailing list, and thought I'd share it with you. Click HERE to remove yourself from the scourge of paper and take back your mailbox. :)

Aaah. That warms my heart.

Which comes in handy today, because the Ways To Use It Challenge is to use a heart on your card. I wanted sort of a vintagey look today so I did a few things.

First, I inked up my Heart Pressed Letterpress Plate with Versamark and ran it through the Big Shot on a Crumb Cake card.

Then, I inked the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder in Crumb Cake and embossed a 2.5" circle of Very Vanilla, which is so fun - the ink and embossing make paper look like embossed tin. I just run my folders under water after I do this. I probably wouldn't do this technique with permanent ink unless you are as fast as a ninja cleaning. I tied Vanilla Seam Binding around the card front and attached the embossed medallion and a heart I punched out of Glimmer Paper. I tied a Trinket Key around the seam binding with Hemp Twine.

Then I did sort of a faux Nestabilities tag - I punched a sponging template out of a scrap with my small oval punch, sponged Crumb Cake onto Very Vanilla inside that oval, and then punched that out with a scalloped oval punch. I added pearls on the tag and on the medallion.

The greeting is from Artistic Etchings.
One of my fave cards to make are cards with just one pop of color on kraft. I don't know why that's so fun, but it is. I guess the human eye loves contrast.

  8. Love your cards and LOVE your blog!
    Just thought you might like to know that the unsolicited "junk" mail you receive can only be returned to sender if you affix postage to it. This is according to postal regulations.
    Good to know that there is an easy way to "opt out."
    Thanks!
