New Bo Bunny and Liquid Embossing

I absolutely love the new Bo Bunny collections...every single one of them.  But I'll admit, Olivia is my new favorite.  The colors are perfect for any occasion and I can see myself using this line again and again this fall.

Here's a birthday card I made recently for the Bo Bunny Blog...




































Pleated strip of pattern paper stitched across the front along with lots of layered chipboard and paper flowers.



















The butterfly is 3 Fiskars Squeeze Punch butterflies layered and glued in the center.  I added micro gems in the center.

I also created a layout recently using a previous collection ~ Paradise.  It's another line I adore with it's seaside colors and images.  Reminds me of our family vacations to Cape Cod when I was little.  The layout below is of my son, Alex, from just a couple of weeks ago.  We'd gone to a favorite beach on the Jersey shore that's generally mellow and not too crowded.  I managed to get a great picture of him just laying back enjoying the view.

















It's hard to tell but the beach actually drops off fairly steep just beyond where he's laying.  The waves were somewhat rough and huge by normal standards due to hurricane Colin near Bermuda.  But the view was beautiful.
 
I added Plaid's All Night Media Liquid Embossing to stamped images, chipboard, alpha stickers and paper images....love this stuff!  You can see all the details & how to here --> Surf's Up!
 
I also used a couple of the new Fiskars Border Punches - Notebook and Stamp.  If you don't have these already, seek them out.  I've been using mine like crazy.  :)

That's it for now...but check back for more new projects coming soon....
