GUEST DESIGNER FOR THE PAPER FUNDAY -- MARCH 2024 --THE DIES HAVE IT

Hello again, crafty peeps!  I'm back on the blog today to share what I created as the guest designer for The Paper Funday challenge for March, where the challenge is:

The DIES have it! (use dies/die cuts in your design)


Here is my project:

Aren't they adorable?  I created these sweet ginger bunnies using dies from My Creative TimeThese cutie patooties are the Giant Ginger (left side), and Giant Girl GingerEmma, the owner, is always coming up with such awesome stamp and die sets, you really should check out her shoppe!  I die cut the ginger bodies from Almond Creme Bazzil cardstock, and blended Vintage Photo oxide ink around the edges.  To make these cute gingers into bunnies, I added the bunny ears and Easter baskets from the Ginger Easter TWO set, as I thought the sizing was just right to fit the Giant Gingers.  Now, since I had dressed the girl ginger using the Giant Girl Ginger Accessories die set, I had to give the boy an outfit as well, so I cut the boy ginger die from one of Emma's more masculine-looking patterned papers to make him a shirt, and then from a piece of dark navy cardstock for his shorts.  I think that turned out so cute!  I added Star Dust stickles to the frosting squiggles and "hair", but I noticed after I took the pictures that I forgot to add some to her bun.  I will fix that later.  The paper pads I used all come from My Creative Time:

Christmas Gingers 6x8.5" (boy shirt)
Ginger Chefs 6x6 (dress)
Script, Hearts & Solids 6x6 (Easter eggs)

Here are pics of the boy and girl separately:




To add some texture to the baskets, I ran them through my Cuttlebug with a plaid embossing folder.  The sweet smiling faces both come from the Giant Ginger stamp set.  I stamped them in VersaFine Clair Pinecone ink, and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I added Tattered Rose distress ink to their cheeks for blush and used a white gel pen to add dots to the blush, and also to the eyes.  And then I called this project finished!

Be sure to check out The Paper Funday challenge this month and submit your die cut projects into the linky.  This kind of prompt is definitely open to lots of interpretation, so I am expecting to see lots of entries!  I can't wait to see what you all create!  

Until next time, take care!
