Marvelous Madeleine mixed media cards!

Mixed Media plus Madeleine equals Magic! You can't go wrong with these beauties! 

Hi, BoBunny Fans! It's Maria Potapovich (mellpellmell) here for you today.

I brought with me today two mixed media cards and want to share them with you! 

They are made using the same materials with the same sketch in the same style.
I decided to do it on purpose to show you that even making exactly the same action with the same material, you can still get a different result - a small bonus from the mixed media style!

The first is "Happy Day" card.

You can see a bit of gesso in the background, three types of sprays, a few stamps... The next layer includes applying  the ink through a stencil, as well as gouache pens doodling.

Frame with a bird cut from a piece of paper, perfectly matched the color and created a the compositional center of card. In this photo you can see that the frame is slightly raised on a thin adhesive tape on the background.

If you look closer, you will see that in some places the background the gold paste is lying - the card immediately acquires a festive feel and shine with it!

BoBunny Supplies:
Patterned paper: Allure/Madeleine
Double Dot Jewels: Think Pink 
Stamps: New Romance, New Captured
Stickable Stencils: Brocade
Glimmer Spray: Tutu, Mint, Bronze
Glitter Paste: Gold
Ink Pad: Licorice, Wildberry, Emerald 

The second card - "Memories"

This time I was not even interested to talk about how this card was made.
Because it is made exactly the same way as the previous one!

A little gesso, Glimmer spray, stamps, ink +Stickable stencil, gouache pens doodling, paper frame, a bit of the gold Glitter paste... -  nothing new!

In this more detailed photo you can see that the gold paste was applied directly onto the frame - very spectacular, I tell you!

Stencils & more!

This amazing keepsake box with delicate accents and beautiful attention to detail will have you running to your craft room to get started on creating your very own!

Book-style Keepsake Box by Gabrielle Pollacco

Hi BoBunny fans, Gabrielle here with you today to share my latest project using some beautiful new products from BoBunny!  I just LOVE the new stickable stencils, it's so cool the way they keep the stencil in place as you are working and allows you to move and re-adjust, all the while keeping that tacky backing so that your designs always come out perfect!

I thought you might enjoy watching a step by step tutorial in which I show, start to finish how I created this little keepsake book/box using the gorgeous new Madeleine collection with some of the new BoBunny mixed media products (Pearlescents and Glimmer Sprays) and stencils.  Just click the arrow above and enjoy!

I thought I would share a few close-up shots of the project that you can enjoy at your leisure.  The photo above lets you see how I used the stencils and texture paste on the cover and spine of the book.  I used the Gold Glimmer Spray to help the texture design stand out.

I like my projects to look pretty inside and out, so I lined my box with some of the beautiful papers from the Madeleine collection (and added a butterfly cut out from Primrose collection).

Another new product that I absolutely LOVE is the Wood Shapes! For my box cover I used a few of the elegant designs from the new Iron Works Wood Shapes packet.  I finished the look with some of the lovely pearls from the jewel packets.

Patterned Paper: Madeleine/Grace, Happiness, Madeleine, Symmetry, 
6x6 Paper Pad:  Primrose

Cards & Stickable Stencils

Stickable Stencils + cards = perfection! You'll be drooling over these fabulous cards by Evgenia!

Bird Card by Evgenia Petzer

On both of my cards I used the new Brocade stickable stencils and applied the Glitter Gold Paste through them. It was a bit bright for the shabby look of these cards, so after it got completely dried, I put some white gesso on top. Loved that effect, its quite junky, but not that massive.

Lots of fussy cutting, so it looks very dimensional in real life. And those shiny dots that I got via stencils suppprt this effect.

On this card I used also the Lace Stickable stencil, just used almost the transculescent paste with it.

Smell the Roses Card by Evgenia Petzer

On this card I again used the same technique, just note that when the glitter gold paste is wet it looks more pale than when it gets dry. I really think it will work great for all the christmas projects that will be everywhere soon.

Misc Me 12x12 & Stencils

Stencils & Misc Me? Who knew!! Check out the fun techniques Bernii uses below with our MUST have stencils!

Abigail Misc Me Spread by Bernii Miller using BoBunny Sticky Stencils and Madeline Collection.

Hello there BoBunny Fans! Bernii here today! I am here to share with you my Misc Me spread that I created using the brand new and exciting Stickable Stencils and Glimmer Sprays bought out with the last release.
Firstly I need to say that if you have not had the chance to grab a set or two of the new stickable stencils you must! They are by far the most superior stencil that I have used. They have given me such a crisp and detailed look using wet mediums. Before it was always a guessing game to see if my stencil had bled, but with the BoBunny stickable stencils, there is no longer that worry. So exciting!!

So let me show you closer what I did to create this Misc Me spread.
First, I used two double dot cardstock bases in Sugar to create this spread and laid them both out in front of me uncut. I then grabbed the Lace Stickable Stencil and laid it out across the two papers. That way I could keep on eye on creating a balanced and cohesive look. Once I was happy with the stencils I used both the Bronze and the Gold Glimmer Spray randomly over the page, making sure that I left some white space in places.

As you can see above in the bottom left corner the brilliant crisp image the BoBunny stickable stencils leaves behind when using wet mediums like the Glimmer Sprays. Once I was complete with the background, I then cut it all up to the measurements needed for the pocket pages.

As a tip to cleaning your Sticky Stencils, I suggest you peel them of your project, then clean them once they are attached back onto plastic sheet they are packaged in. Then using a wet wipe clean the stencil on top, and then lift up the stencil and clean the plastic sheeting underneath to make sure all residue is gone. Do not be too picky if the stencil is stained a little, as I find a little build up on top of the stencil is great to add a little more strength over time.

I used the new Madeline collection to embellish the Misc Me spread as I found it really  complemented Glimmer Sprays I used.

I also played around with the new BoBunny Pearlescents with the Stickable Stencils and simply used my finger to blend and spread around the wet medium. I love how it turned out and again how crisp the image turned out.

Thanks so much for dropping by.

Stamping, Steciling, and Spraying Oh My! Tutorial

This fun photo tutorial will show you how to combine stamping, stenciling, spraying and embellishing on canvas! With BoBunny mixed media your options are endless!

Hello everyone! Kaori here to share my Tutorial using Stencils.
I used this heart shaped canvas. I began by painting white Gesso to the canvas.

After drying the paint with heat tool, I use this "Written Stamp".
I added some stamping to the background.


I applied modeling paste over the stencils. This stencil is "Stickable", so we will be able to keep it in place on the canvas or paper.

Once the modeling paste has dried, add some mists. I used TUTU and GOLD Mists by BoBunny.

Finally, adhering the embellishments.

I hope you like this project. Thanks for stopping by!

Stencils, Stencils, Show Me How To Use Those Stencils!

Say what??? BoBunny stencils are stickable? You mean, when I put it on my project I don't have worry about smudging or bleed? That is right crafty friends! We are bringing you a week of projects that feature BoBunny stencils!

 I Wanna go FAST!! by Lisa G

I love stencils!!! They are so versatile and can be used with sooooo many different mediums. For my layout, because it has so much texture, I decided to use BoBunny's black ink applying it using a foam rubber applicator with the  BoBunny stencil, to grunge up the papers for my layout. I have wanted to scrap a picture of my car, and found the Wild Card collection to be the perfect match.

The background paper was mounted on  piece of corrugated cardboard using ModPodge. Once it dried, I wet the edges of the layout and peeled back, tore and wrinkled back the outer layer of paper and cardboard. I did the same for the middle piece of paper. I inked it further and applied the fabulous  Bronze spray to give it an old gilded finish. I die cut the tags from the extra paper I cut away, inked them and added an eyelet. 

I used flowers from 2 different collections that matched my paper perfectly. I inked and layered them before scrunching them up a bit for texture and fullness. Then I placed a brad in the center to anchor them together.

You can see the peeled back layers that I used on this layout. I also tucked under some inked petals between the layers. I added the glitter paste round the middle layer to add some sparkle to the layout. I also tucked in  few of the noteworthy pieces into the layers as well.

The BoBunny stencils are wonderful as they have a sticky back formulated to stay in perfect position while you use your choice of mediums. There are a variety of designs to work with.
