Babies, Easter, Christmas, Fourth of ... Wait. What?

Greetings, Stamplings!

Don't forget the April Boo-Boo Hop/NBUS Challenge #11 is coming soon!

Coming Saturday, April 1st!

Not only is spring in the air, but Easter is almost in the air, and not only that, there's a new baby in the air! Well, I mean, not right now. This baby girl isn't even born yet and, of course, one should never throw a newborn baby up in the air, for goodness sake. But after a few months, she'll love it! 

The new baby girl I'm talking about belongs to my friend Lesley Croghan and her husband Corey! Many of you know Lesley because of her own blog (Always Playing With Paper) and as the owner of several of the challenge blogs that we all participate in week-after-week. In order to celebrate the upcoming birth, the thoughtful Lori is holding a Welcome Little Miss Croghan Blog Hop on her blog. There are still a coupla days left if you'd like to join in!

I made this:
This beautiful NBUS "Bunny" image is from Stacy Stamps. I colored the image with my SU markers directly to the stamp and then stamped it on the cream card. I used my colored pencils to give the bunny a pink hue. The heat-embossed fussy-cut sediment is from Hero Arts, "Hey Dey Sentiments." The panel was attached to a burlap panel and I added a pink heart for punctuation.

Of course, Hammy insisted that Miss Bunny needed a bit of twinkle in her eye and shine on her nose! 
This was so cute and easy, I made a few extras for Easter cards.

Challenges/Hop
Twofer.

Speaking of Easter Christmas, who hasn't made very many Christmas cards in spite of the fact we are fast approaching the Fourth Month of the year already? That's right, you and me. Well, me, fershur. So I took a few minutes to play with Christmas:
Poinsettias are such a classic Christmas image and, for me, they never get old. I had a lot of fun watercoloring two cards using this poinsettia from Waltzingmouse Stamps with my KGT watercolor paints after heat-embossing them in white. The NBUS sediment is from Skipping Stones. You can't see it, but Hammy blinged the poinsettia with Stella.

In spite of using my MISTI, you can see that the sediment is WAAAY up under the skirt of the poinsettia. What happened was I put the first stamped image on the tool to stamp it, removed it, put the second one in and stamped it without even looking. Well, hellooooo?!! Seeing as how I used my old-fashioned acrylic block to stamp the poinsettia image with Versamark for the embossing, I didn't stamp the image prezackly the same way both times ... well, you get the picture. 

So there's a lesson for you: the MISTI is not the most incredible stamping tool invented if the operator is an idiot!

Challenges

Reminder!!

My boo-boo card above is a smooth way to seque into this reminder! (I didn't plan it that way, but there you go!)

COMING SATURDAY!!

APRIL FOOL'S DAY HOP AND NBUS CHALLENGE #11
(Never-Before-Used-Schtuff)
Coming April 1-11, 2017
The deets:
  • The challenge will run from April 1 to April 11.
  • Enter any new creation that:
    • is made from something NBUS, or
    • has a boo-boo on it, or
    • BOTH!
  • There will be no prizes other than: 
    • The self-satisfied sense of well-being you'll feel having used some schtuff that you have ignored until now. 
    • The self-effacing sense of amusement you'll feel having shared your big fat boo-boo with us! 
    • The self-congratulatory sense of accomplishment you'll feel having done BOTH!!
  • Because there will be no tangible prizes, there will be no other customary rules! I know you all know how to play well with others.
I can't wait to see what you share!! Mwah!

~~~

Enjoy your day!  No, seriously, enjoy!  LITS!* 

On a personal note, I want to again thank you for all your kind thoughts and prayers for the Mister. He is continuing to improve by leaps and bounds! Well, okay, by small steps, but they feel like leaps and bounds compared to being flat on his back!

As always, thank you for coming by to visit the Playhouse and special thanks to you if you take the time to join as a follower.  Please let me know you came by so I can be sure to return the flavor!

Two fabulous cards, love that cute bunny.xx ♥[aNNie]

Karren said...

Gorgeous cards, Darnell! And that pink bunny is just too cute and such a wonderful idea for a baby card.

Glennis said...

The colouring of your bunny is just perfect! Great cards Darnell

Sue said...

Hi Darnell, Loving both cards.

Hope your hubby continues to improve. Sue

Jane Willis said...

Oh my word, the bunny is totally adorable! (I'd say "totes adorbs" but then I'd have to kill myself, and I have too much NBUS waiting to be used to do that)
Jane

Stamps and Paper said...

Your rabbit cards are gorgeous Darnell and love your colouring...your are good making a Christmas card every year I think I must start earlier and dont....you put me to shame.

Hope your 'Mister' continues to make good progress

Gerrina said...

That first card is so sweet and looks so realistic at the same time; beautiful! And your poinsettacard is beautiful; I don't mind not seeing the whole text; I know what it says anyway... Hugs, Gerrina

Redanne said...

Oh that bunny rabbit is just too darn cute for words, especially with the winked eye and nose - great suggestion Hammy!

The poinsettia card is absolutely stunning!! I didn't even notice the teeny tiny boo boo on the sentiment, it doesn't take anything away from the card at all!

Glad to hear that Mister is improving too! Big hugs, Annie xxxx

Marianne said...

Your bunny is so sweet and your poinsettia is bold and beautiful, Darnell. I discovered I had not created as many Christmas cards this month as I would have liked, so I'm happy I managed to squeeze in another one this week, inspired by Cornelia's Muse card.
Happy to hear the Mr. is doing better. DH is going to schedule an appointment for another CT scan today. Fingers crossed everything will be OK.

Sue's Crafty Corner said...

Fantastic cards Darnell, I love the bunny stamp you've used on the top card.

Sue xx

Anita in France said...

Gosh, that sweet plump bunny looks as though she's just ready to be stroked, Darnell ... what a beauty ... and so cute with the delicate pink hue and sparkly eyes and nose! Your watercolouring is gorgeous on the poinsettia ... it's positively bursting off the card with all the dimension and depth you created! There I was thinking you'd tucked the sentiment rather nicely into this bold bloom ... and then read it was a blooper ... ooops, I should read before I think! LYAMYMAHYWIGW! Hugs & bisous, Anita :)

Leigh Penner said...

Wonderful cards, Darnell!

Pat said...

Two fabulous cards Darnell and I adore your sweet bunny making a super Easter card and a great way to introduce Lesley's new little girl to come. The Poinsettia is gorgeous coloured with your Gansai Tambi paints and a great card even with your slight boo boo. So pleased The Mister is slowly progressing and hope that complete recovery will happen in the not too distant future. x

Marilyn said...

Both of your cards are beautiful!! Love the bunny!

Linda W. (ScrappinBari) said...

Just love both cards, Darnell - the bunny is so sweet & I love your poinsettia too!!

SmilynStef said...

Love the red & green you used together ... so glad you're helping us *bling* in the holidays at jingle belles.

Linby said...

Two wonderful cards. I too have operator error with the MISTI sometimes - it's not foolproof! Glad the Mister is improving.

Bobby said...

What a wonderful bunny image, Darnell, and I think the sentiment looks fine where it is but I understand what you mean about double checking. ;)

Sarah said...

Hi Darnell, love your pink bunny, perfect for the soon to be parents. That is a Bobby Dazzler of a poinsettia, gorgeous and of course the sentiment was supposed to be peeping out!! xx

Brenda in IN said...

That is the sweetest bunny! I want to snuggle with her and pet that soft looking fur. Your Christmas card is so pretty even with the boo boo. It really doesn't hurt anything. I am so very happy Mister is doing so much better. It's sounding like there won't have to be any surgery and that has to be wonderful news for you both.

Carole said...

Love that bunny...I want to stroke him , he is so realistic. Like your poinsettias too Darnell...but no I can't think of Christmas yet! If my mojo comes a knocking at your door please send it back in the right direction...hope the mister is improving...well I did tell you swinging on the chandeliers must stop at some stage in life!!!! Hugs xx

Happy Dance said...

Well for goodness sakes! If that bunny isn't the sweetest image, and what a great idea to make her into a new baby card!! Brilliant. She's colored perfectly! LOVE the burlap; what a great way to add dimension and interest without taking anything away from the bun-buns. Love this, and I'm sure Lesley will too. Darling, darlin'!! And I rather like how your sentiment is hugging your poinsettia! I thought you did that on porpoise until I kept reading, lol!! I think it turned out rather well! Your watercoloring is beautiful, btw. Such rich reds...just beautimous! Missing you. xoxo
Bev

Valerie Nolan said...

That bunny is just gorgeous Darnell the detail is almost photographic! Love poinsettias, I managed to keep one for 3 months this year and had little led lights through it! Glad to hear the invalid is progressing well!

scrAPpamondo said...

Fabulous bunny, his eye and nose look amazing and love the burlap panel!
Lovely Christmas card too, so beautiful watercolouring!

stampwithsandy said...

Oh Darnell that bunny is just so sweet, especially with the twinkle in her eye! Lesley and Corey are going to love this. Love your poinsettia card too, and if you hadn't said so I'd think the placement of the sentiment was quite deliberate, as I think it looks perfect slightly shadowed by the leaves!

Maura R said...

Your bunny card is adorable, Darnell!! I love the soft coloring you gave it and the burlap bg is a fabulous design element!! Thanks for the kind comment on my card, and I am so glad to hear that the Mister is steadily improving!!!

My Card Attic: Hazel said...

The first, adorable, the second, just stunning! LOVE them both Darnell! Have a great day! Luv n’ Hugs. Hazel xx

Linda said...

Darnell, what an adorable baby card for Lesley. And you poinsettia is so beautiful. Thanks for joining us this week at Merry Monday. Glad to hear the Mister is getting better day by day.

conil said...

First...glad to hear that the Mister is leaping and bounding his way to recovery. Phew, makes me tired thinking about it but good for him.
Second...that bunny. I'm smitten beyond words and love that you tinted it pink. Such a sweet baby (or Easter) card. That burlap is a beautifully, textural and rustic counterpoint to the image. Perfection.
Third...personally, I like where the sentiment is nestled next to your pretty poinsettia...looks like it belongs there.

Leslie Miller said...

Ohhhhh, that's a big, beautiful bunny stamp! One of my NBUSs is a bunny stamp, coming up close on the list. Bunnies make the sweetest baby cards, and I love it on the burlap. Sheesh, I have a whole pad of NBUS burlap paper, too. Love, love your card! And the poinsettia is another big, beautiful stamp. Fabulous impact on the white. I'm struggling along with monthly Christmas cards. It's so hard to get in the spirit, so I appreciate the encouragement.

Basslady said...

both cards look fantastic!

thank you so much for playing along with us at make my Monday!

hugs and kisses from germany,
silvi xoxo

Colleen said...

I love that bunny stamp!! And how perfect to make it for a baby card...just two weeks now if Leslie can hold on... Love your poinsettia, oh I don't think I would share all my bloopers, too embarrassing and too many to even count, the recycle bin sees a lot of messed up stuff!! But I do seem to collect a lot of stuff that I surely need, only to be sitting there waiting for some ink. Darnell, that Mister...I think you need to keep him on a very short leash! I am so happy that he is improving, I am sure he feels like baby steps are not nearly fast enough for him or you, for that matter! Take care...patience my friend!! Heart Hugs, Col

Inkyfingers said...

I love the rustic look that the burlap gives to you sweet bunny card Darnell, and I'm impressed that you are keeping up with Christmas before Easter! I've been having a bit of a blog break because of life getting in the way, so I was so sorry to hear about Kevin when I visited today. I'm glad he is on the mend and I'm sending hugs over the airways.
Take care
Carol x

Pat said...

Gorgeous poinsettia. Thanks for sharing with Make My Monday Challenge.

Lisa said...

Both of your cards are so gorgeous, Darnell!! I love the sweet bunny!! Hammy's right...the sparkle in his eye and shine on the nose are perfect touches!! And what a stunning poinsettia!! The colors are amazing!! Have a great day!! Big hugs :)

Carol L said...

What an adorable bunny! I love the card and I love the classic boo-boo on your Christmas card too! Been there/done that so many times :)

Greta said...

LOVE your cards, my friend--especially the bunny one! I have a gorgeous Magenta bunny stamp from many years ago & now I'm going to get it out for an Easter card. Each year I think of it AFTER Easter, but you reminded me in time this year! I have my NBUS card ready to enter on the first which happens to be hubby's son-in-law's BD--yah! The stamp is one I actually tried to sell at my LSS garage sale & they've been closed about 5 years. Now I'm glad I still have it!

Fiki said...

your cards are so nice!

Jenny L said...

Hi Darnell,
2 wonderful cards and such very super designs.
Love the bunny one and you have stamped it so wonderfully too.
Gorgeous work on it.
Your Rudolf card is also very wonderfil and the poinsettia is gorgeous and coloured perfectly as well.
I agree about the Misti it doesn't allow for operator error as I have found out quite recently.
Lots of crafty love and hugs from my house to yours. Jenny L.

Jane said...

Beautiful bunny and colouring directly onto the stamp has given a super artsy feel to your card. Thanks for linking up at Uniko.

Bożena Adamusińska said...

Hi Darnell,
I understand, why you fell in love with this bunny. He is beautiful, very realistic. You beautiful added colours. And poinsettia - unusual! I adore for her intense, deep colour!
Hugs,
BożenA xx

JD/ Jill said...

As always! Very nicely done cards!

Verna Angerhofer said...

Both your cards are super fantastic! And, thanks for the reminders. I will see what I can find for the Boo Boo one and no problem with the NBUS one at all. LOL

Berina RGA said...

Beautiful cards!! That bunny is very cute! Love that twinkle on his eye and nose :)

Jean said...

Gorgeous cards. Thanks for the heads up on the misti.

JoAnn said...

What a sweet bunny card. I am sure Lesley will love it.
Love your Christmas card too. I think this is the first year in several years I haven't made very many Christmas cards all along. I had better get buy. Ha!

Kathleen said...

Two fabulous cards Darnell, wonderful images and great designs, well one great design, the other would have been if not for the Misti getting it wrong, but like your attitude "Publish and be dammed" as the old saying goes.
I don't have a Misti but have just got a Hampton Art thingy and was really proud of myself for adding a sentiment is a specific place only to find it was not straight, well when you have to place it face down, how can you tell?

Kath x

Brenda said...

Awwww, that beautiful bunny makes for a great baby card Auntie!! I so love how you did him and I love how large he is! Love the burlap and the sentiment banner as well as the heart. I also love your beautiful poinsettia card!! It is stunning! I love the watercolor color you made it and I happen to like where the sentiment is myself! But you do crack me up Auntie! Idiot, I think not! Glad to hear the Mister is gaining ground with his back, that's a hard one and I'm just over the moon that he is getting better with his baby steps! Hugs, Brenda

Nan G said...

Gor-jus bunny! Stunning image Darnell! Pretty poinsettia and if I can straighten up from bending over to read the sentiment tucked so nicely under that leaf......well anywhos it. So glad to hear Mister is improving. Prolly from all the undivided nursing attention. Knew Hammy was good for something huh?! ;) mwah back at 'cha!

Nan G said...

pssst, thank you!

Craftychris said...

Ooh the bunny is sooooo cute! Such a gorgeous card. I am loving the fabulous poinsettia card too - fab watercolouring! I am glad the Mister is getting there albeit slowly! Hugs. Chris xxxxxxxxx

oldpunca said...

What a super sweet bunny! Hammy has right to propose a bit of twinkle in Bunny's eye and shine on her nose! :-) I like your poinsettia too. Fabulous stamping and colouring.
I'm sending best wishes to your Mister.
Hugs, Sonja

Birgit said...

First off-I'm so sorry I missed your post(s) about your Mister. I'm glad he is slowly on the mend and my thoughts are with you and your hubby. Congrats to your friend and your bunny card is so cute. It is good for a girl or boy in my book. I love your Christmas card also- so bright with the Poinsettia

Mrs A. said...

I'm sure that there wabbit has his beady eye on me! Hugs Mrs A.

Lisa Elton said...

Love your card for Lesley with that darling bunny!! And that poinsettia is pretty. Two marvelous cards Darnell!

Maxine D said...

Ohhh - that bunny is just waiting to be hugged - he is delish!! Love the hint of pink and Hammy was right, he did need a shiny eye and nose.
The poinsettia is gorgeous boo-boo's or not!
So glad to hear thet your Mr is up and slowly about
Blessings
Maxine

Cheryl W. said...

Your first card had me wanting to hug that beautiful bunny and hold a baby at the same time! Your second card had me feeling very ashamed of my measly stack of 2017 Christmas cards. I really have to get on the stick and get some more made. Loved your CAS card. I think I might even have a similar big poinsettia stamp, so maybe I'll give your idea a whirl.

Karen L K said...

Such a nice bunny card! Wonderful coloring. The poinsettia card is very nice even with the oops part. I like how your flower came out.

hellerlittle said...

omg, these cards are adorable,
but the BUNNY image is such sweet ~ love it
LG hellerlittle

Linda said...

Well that little bunny is just too cute, and I love the poinsettia card. I really need to make a start on filling up the festive box .... it is April at the weekend after all (eeeek!)
Glad to hear the mister is on the mend too .... big hugs! xx

Ros Crawford said...

Oh that's one gorgeous bunny and his shiny nose and sparkly eye are perfect! Your friend will love this! And I love your Christmas card ... I like the sentiment where it is... Looks like the poinsettia is trailing over it. Have a beautiful day my friend!

Bonnie said...

What a beautiful bunny, Darnell! And your poinsettia is beautifully painted! (I can still mess up a sentiment with the MISTI.)

Marjeta said...

Fabulous card. Bunny is my favorite.

Marjeta

Donna said...

Fabulous cards Darnell, especially like that sweet bunny. Hope all is well with you.

Lesley said...

Hi Darnell! What a sweet bunneh! Love it and the textured background! Poinsettias are my fav stamp image for Christmas cards too...I have much too many! Sorry to hear about mister. I didn't know he has been unwell. Happy to hear he is turning the corner. Thank you for your support and kindness over the years! You are such an amazing person! Big hugs!

Happy Dance said...

P.S. Pookie,
If my current card turns out the way I think it will, I'll have a good booboo card for your challenge.... Otherwise, it'll be an NBUS. And unless those YKW gremlins invade my head again, I'll be playing! Wooooohooooooo.

Cazro said...

A stunning Poinsettia, loving the colouring. A beautiful card. Thanks for joining us at Make My Monday. Good luck. Caz DT.

KandA said...

Two fabulous creations Darnell. Gorgeous Poinsettia and I love the bunny with his twinkling eye.
I'm already set for NBUS day.... just spent the last month stocking up on one or two (or maybe twenty) new stamps + dies. Just need to treat myself to a new cupboard now!
.... and a Happy and healthy new year to you and the Mister too xx

Wen Green said...

Lol, I have a whole lot of ignored schtuff here, as will many of us probably have :) Your cards are beautiful, Darnell, that bunny is so cute! And the way you take photos of them, just stunning photography! And then I would also like to thank you for the sweet and very helpful message you left me today on my blog. Thank you Darnell for the encouraging words! Sending you happy smiles

cuilliesocks said...

Hello Darnell, your first card is stunning, what a wonderful image and fabulous colours, love your poinsettia card too, love simple design, good to hear that your husband is improving, Kate x

scrappymo! said...

That is one gorgeous bunny image and I love the way you did up his eyes and nose! Great card , Darnell!

The Rudolph card is fabulous dahling! I love that poinsettia and I like the sentiment just where it is. Looks great to me.

Thanks for taking part in the March Rudolph Days Challenge

Mary Anne / MA54K said...

Beautiful Two-fer, Darnell. That rabbit is up close and personal.......love the details. The white embossing on that gorgeous Poinsettia really jingles my bells!

Estelle TBT said...

Two fabulous and gorgeous cards Darnell!!!
Your bunny card is totally adorable.
And your poinsetia card is absolutely stunning!
Estelle xx

Sandy said...

I just fell in love - your little bunny is so very sweet and you did a beautiful job coloring him/her!
Sandy xx

nancy littrell said...

Your sweet bunny card is so beautifully colored and I LOVE the texture from your burlap. TFS you poinsettia card too. I have yet to make a Christmas card this year...yikes!

I hope Mister is a little better with each passing day.

Hugs...Nancy

Karenladd said...

Awww, that sweet bunny couldn't be cuter! I have a soft spot for bunnies since I did rabbit rescue for years. I thought of you today, and you April Fool blog hop when I made some major boo-boos on a card. Honestly, if I were the superstitious sort, I would have thought my craft tools were out to get me! Glad to hear the Mister is starting to hobble around and improve!

Whisper said...

Oooo what an absolutely stunning poinsetta and a great sentiment too, thanks for taking part in the March Rudolph Days Challenge, Luv Sam x

frommycraftroom said...

What an amazingly gorgeous bunny stamp and cards.
Christmas cards already! OH my I haven't even thought - good for you to get a start.
And lucky me the postie has bought me a few bundles to play with a new NBUS to make me ink them up :)

Marcia HIll said...

Two fabulous cards Darnell! Love that bunny and the twinkle in his eye...too cute!! And your Poinsettia card is just lovely...even with the sentiment where it is! (I would never have noticed if you hadn't said anything...we are our own worst critics sometimes, aren't we?!) Thanks so much for sharing with us at Merry Monday this week! :0)

Geri said...

WOW! WOW! WOW! I darn near fell off my chair when I realized that the bunny WASN'T pre-printed! It seriously looks like it's been professionally printed! Hammy had an INCREDIBLE idea - the 'wink' is amazing and adds such a 'real life' look to the eye and nose!

Never too early to get rolling on the Christmas cards! Love your beautiful water colored poinsettia and how the sweet white space makes it pop right off the page! Regarding the sentiment - I'm calling it a 'great miss' on the stamping cuz I really like how comfortable it looks snuggled up against the leaf!

So nice to hear that Mister is recovering in 'small stepping leaps and bounds'! Before you know it, he'll be back on that motorcycle!

Izzy Scrap said...

Two fabulous cards Darnell ! Love this bunny card, it looks so real with its glossy eyes! And this watercoloured poinsettia is a wonder ! Love this crispy red ! Thanks for sharing and for inspiring.
Hugsxx

Helen F. said...

Such a sweet baby/Easter card, Darnell! Love your coloring on this beauty. The poinsettia card looks fab to me and I don't see any oops on the card :-}

Tracey McNeely said...

Two wonderful cards I love how you chose to make a bunny shower card using Inspuired By as a spring board--so sweet and the poinsettia is gorgeous. Thank you for sharing with us at Inspired By All the Little Things this week.

Sheri Gilson said...

Beautiful cards! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Inspired By All The Little Things!

Notes by Nina said...

Wonderful carda Darnell, Thank you for playing along with Merry Monday.

Lindsey said...

Lovely bunny card - reminds me of a Netherlands dwarf I had when I was little! Gorgeous rich poinsettia card too x

Lisa Tilson said...

haha! What were you telling me about the MISTI Darnell only yesterday?? And you were very brave to stamp the poinsettia image with an acrylic block - I only use mine on smaller images now as I cannot trust myself to stamp properly. I don't need to remind you of this fact! And that bunny is so adorable - I have never coloured my stamps and then stamped them before. I have seen many people do it, but only have Copics and am a bit scared to do it with them. Maybe with my ziggies though... or maybe not after yesterday. Love both of your cards as always, and I am pleased to see that it is not only me that is thinking of Christmas :). Hugs, Lisa xx

Em Louise Fairley said...

Gorgeous cards, as always, but please stop wishing the year away. I never get started on Christmas until at least half of it has gone. Grin.
Hugs,
Em xoxox

Greta said...

Congrats on the HM at MM--sentiment "WAAAY" to high or not! The watercoloring of the white embossed poinsettia is gorgeous, my friend!

sandie said...

Oh stop I haven't made one Xmas card yet and your sentiment I like in this position. I have been playing a bit with changing the positions of sentiments and it is quite fun and thus looks fab. Like the texture of your first card plus bunny is a vintage kinda look x

Beverley said...

What an adorable bunny card and I especially like the detail and subtle colouring, how lovely to use it for a New Baby card too. Gah! I've not even thought about Christmas (thinking maybe I should considering how behind I get on things these days). Your vibrant poinsettia is delightful and inspiring. Thanks so much for sharing and lovely to see you in the Uniko Challenge gallery again. Hugs Bev x
