Plan on a donut!

Hello Rabbit Hole Designs Fans!! DTM Shanna here today with a card matched up with a sweet treat! This card features the new More that Donuts stamp set released earlier this month.  I grabbed the Circles and Stars stencil for some background magic on my planner layout for the new year!  Bring on 2020!!



I started by stamping my squirrel on cardstock in Inkon3 Fade Out ink, and then colored with my new Nuvo markers I got for Christmas!!  I have a TON to learn about alcohol markers and coloring techniques with them, and I have NO idea what made me want to try a no line coloring project for my first, but I like the end result all things considered. 


My background was lightly stenciled with the Dots and Stars stencil.  This stencil i one of my absolute FAVORITE stencils TRHD has, it is so pretty and versatile for backgrounds.  I actually can't tell you what color pink was on my brush, because I didn't ink it up! I used the residual reds/pinks ink that was still on my blending brush from my previous projects as to keep the look more pastel.  


That wraps up my post for today, I will be back soon for another trip down The Rabbit Hole!  Until then you can find me over on my blog, Caffeinated Craftiness or over on Instagram-Shanna

Two For One Donut Day

Welcome back to the blog Rabbit Hole fans, I hope everyone enjoyed 
their holidays with friends and family!

It's Lisa here on the blog with you today and I have a special treat!
Two Donut cards for the price of one. I just love the sentiments from the 
More Than Donuts stamp set and I used them to create the 2 cards
I am sharing today. 



For my first card I made a miniature note card.
I started with an 8x4 inch piece of kraft colored card stock and folded
it in half at 4 inches. I covered the bottom half of the front panel
in pink patterned paper and after I adhered it, I rounded the corners of the 
bottom of the front panel.  I then took the heart stamp from the 
Sassy Sentiments - Anti Valentine stamp set and stamped it randomly 
in kraft ink so it would give a tone on tone appearance to the top of the front panel.

I assembled a few cute donuts from my stash to the top of the patterned paper
and stamped my sentiment from More Than Donuts onto a cute tag.

A little pink twine to finish off the top of the card and it was done.
Why are donuts always soooooo darn cute?
🍩🍩🍩




My second card today is a gate fold card with a shaker element on the front.
The shaker element on the front is filled with fun sprinkles
just like you'd see on a donut.
I only adhered the heart shaker to one side of the front panel so
it could be opened to reveal the cute sentiment with donuts
on the inside.
I used 2 more sentiments from the More Than Donuts 
stamp set for this card. 


Here are the 2 stamp sets I used on today's cards:


 

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today, I hope
you enjoyed my 2 donut inspired cards.

December Guest Designer Andrea Shell

As December wraps up; We are pleased to bring you one more card from one of our December 2019 Guest Design Team Member ... Andrea Shell. 


We sent Andrea the More Than Donuts stamp and we think she knocked it out of the park with this project. 

To see all the details please click here -> More Than Donuts



This is what Andrea had to say about our More Than Donuts stamp set ...

"Hi there!  It's Andrea back with my second project as a guest for The Rabbit Hole Designs.  This card also features the new More than Donuts set, but this time I went for a more traditional Valentine card.

I had a lot of fun watercoloring this adorable squirrel, using an image I found on Google for color inspiration (Who knew there are so many color variations for squirrels?!).  I couldn't resist adding some details with a white gel pen, along with Glossy Accents to those cute specs of his!  I popped my image onto a stenciled background and white heat-embossed a sentiment from More than Donuts.

Thank you, Mary Ann, for inviting me to guest-design this month!  I had a great time and hope I inspired you even a little."

A Hoggy Post Holiday Card


Hello everyone and happy day after Christmas!
I have family in Iowa and live in So Cal, so speaking to them on Christmas they were at 58 degrees and beautiful weather with no snow and we were at 54 degrees with rain and wind, so it was a bit backwards for us.  I hope you all had nice weather, good food and took time to be present.  We celebrated with our oldest son, his wife and their one year old (my very active toddler grandson), my dad and my husband's sister.  Our youngest son and his little family were ill and spent the day at home recuperating. But we had a grand visit and some good food and it was a beautiful day! 

I have a fun card to share with you that showcases our Hoggy Holiday's stamp set and our Light Me Up stencil and I used the sentiment "Let it snow" from our Love You More- Christmas Frost stamp set. So let's get started on how this card came to be:


I started with a piece of Simon Says Stamp Card Stock in Schoolhouse Red cut to 4.25" x 5.5"
I then took our Light Me Up stencil and using White Pigment Ink and a blender brush, I stenciled the snowflake all over the card stock.  I then used the brush and blended more white ink all along the edges of the card stock.  I love how it looks like those frosted windows you see around the holidays with the center being the focal point.  I then let the panel dry.  I then used Ink On 3's Liquid Pixie Dust and splattered the background liberally, and oh my how I am in love with this!  I then used some white ink and watered it down and splattered the background with that as well..... and if I wanted to leave it at that I believe that would have carried this card, it was such a great panel.  But, I had this little piggy all colored up and could not wait to use him! I love his scarf and shirt and that hat... he is adorable!!!  So I cut him out, popped him up on fun foam and put him on the bottom left of the card.  Then I stamped the sentiment on black card stock 3 times with clear sticky ink and heat embossed with white, fine detail embossing powder and cut out small banners and popped them onto some foam as well.  After I placed all the elements on the card front and placed my panel onto a white A2 sized card base, I then took some Vicki Boutin Iridescent Texture Glitter Paste and put it on the tops of my sentiment strips and under neath my piggy, and since sparkle and glitter is AWESOME- I then sprinkled some Unicorn Glitter on top while the texture paste was still wet for more fun.



Hopefully you can see some of the chunks and sparkle in the close up pictures.... it is so pretty in real life.  I also put some glitter gloss on the white parts of the piggy's hat and then used a white gel pen and added some lines here and there for some added interest.


If you have any questions for me please feel free to leave me a message, and from my family to yours I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  I added links to the sets I used in the body of the post.  You can also get our stamp sets and stencils at Simon Says Stamp or at The Rabbit Hole Designs.





You Make My Heart Dance by Niccole

Hello everyone!

It's Nic from Nic & Viv Designs back again to share another card I made using one of The Rabbit Hole Designs new stamp sets. 
For today's card I used the Love You More - Heart Dance stamp set, along with the Square Illusion stencil that was released this month.

How to create this card:
  • A2 red card base that is 4.25"x5.5".
  • Apply transfer gel over your stencil on a black card piece and let it dry clear.
  • Add silver foil to your stenciled background and run through your hot laminator.
  • Trim background to 4"x5.25" and apply to your red card base.
  • Add a red stripe across the middle of your background that is 1.5"x5.25"
  • Trim the top and bottom of your red piece with a thin black piece of card stock. 
  • Clear emboss you stamped image of the couple dancing from the Love You More - Heart Dance stamp set. 
  • Place silver foil over embossed image and run through your hot laminator.  Trim around the couple dancing.
  • Add your trimmed foiled couple from the Love You More - Heart Dance stamp set. I raised them up with foam tape.
  • Add White Nuvo Drops to the center of the squares of the Square Illusion stenciled background.  It adds some dimension to the card.
  • Add a few White Nuvo Crystal Drops randomly to finish the card.
Here is one more picture of the full cards ...

What do you think of the foiled couple? Isn't a neat technique?  It does work better with outline images, but play around ... you never know what you might come up with.

Love You More Christmas Card

 

Happy Christmas Eve! It's Amanda from Pear Blossom Press and I wanted to share one last Christmas card with you this year. I stepped outside of my comfort zone to color a whole scene. I really tried to create a flat, one-layer card, but in the end, I couldn't do it. Lol, one of these days I'll actually make a completely flat card. Maybe that can be one of my new year's resolutions? (Who am I kidding, I won't keep that one either!)


This card was very simple to make. I stamped the couple from the Love You More Heart Dance set. Then, I masked them off and stamped only the Christmas tree from the Love You More Christmas Frost set on top. When I removed the mask, the tree appeared to be in the background behind them. I used Copic markers to color the images, as well as the floor and wall. It was surprisingly easy to create the wood floor. I just used a ruler to mark a straight line separating the floor and wall. Then, I used several shades of E markers (browns) to draw in lines and a few ovals. I used the last and lightest shade to color over the whole floor. That toned down the contrast and helped blend the colors a little. For the wall, I used three shades of BV markers (blue violet), darkest at the bottom and worked my way up to feather off into white. I used the 0 Blender marker to soften the last lines at the top and help them blend. I really like the wispy lines at the top; they give the wall texture without too much contrast. 



My plan was to stamp the sentiment onto the wood floor, but I was afraid it would get lost. So I stamped it onto a piece of pale violet cardstock and die cut it with a fishtail banner. At this point, I knew the card wasn't going to be a single layer, so I decided to decorate it a little more by cutting the scene out with a scalloped rectangle and layering it onto a pale violet card base. I used foam to pop up both the scene and the sentiment. Yes, that means my flat card has three layers, but that's still less than normal for me, right? I played with the placement of the flat-backed gems, trying them first as ornaments on the tree, but I decided I liked them scattered on the scene better. To keep the tree from feeling naked, I added some sparkle with an Aqua Shimmer pen. 

What do you think of my almost flat card? Do you prefer lots of layers, or stamping/drawing a scene? If I had thought about it more, I probably could have moved the images down on the panel and stamped the sentiment at the top. Then I might have actually made it one layer. Knowing me, I probably wouldn't have been happy with it though. 

Happy holidays my crafty friend! I'll be back soon with more fun cards! (It's almost time for the new release; I hope Santa brings you a gift certificate because you are going to want it all!) In the mean time, you can find more inspiration with the Love You More sets here and here. Head on over to my blog for links to the specific products I used.

Love You More- Winter Frost and Cattitude Holiday Mash-Up Card


Hey Everyone! Justin here with my FIRST blog post as an official The Rabbit Hole Designs DT Member!

Today I am super excited to share with you the project I made by mashing up 2 of my favorite sets together: Cattitude & Love You More- Winter Frost

The reason I wanted to mash these cards together was because of that tilting Christmas Tree from the Love You More- Winter Frost set. It's so fun, but I feel that very little bit of chaos in the tilting tree is so relatable. My husband talked about when his family had a cat, they actually had to stop putting up a tree because the cat would destroy it! So, I took that idea and ran with it for this card.

With most cards, I start with my background. I cut a 4" x 5.25" panel, took the Circle Illusion Stencil, adhered it with a light tack spray, and blended red ink. I then mounted it to a green mitten-patterned A2 panel for some extra holiday feels.

For my images, I colored the sitting cat from Cattitude and only the tree from Love You More- Winter Frost (I masked off the couple trying to place the star). I then colored the images with alcohol markers and cut them out with my scan and cut. After cutting, I used red and green enamel dots to add ornaments to the tree and let them dry. I also made an extra cut with my scissors to separate the cat's legs so he looked like he was straddling the tree.

Once I adhered my cat to the tree, I used a card wobbler to attach the tree to my card. That way, it would look like the cat is making it tumble over!

I added a sentiment strip saying "blame it on the dog" from the Cattitude set (I mean, how perfect of a sentiment for a card like this) and used some of the pawprint stamps for a little extra detail.

To finish my card off, I used some green enamel dots and placed them around the tree in the shape of paw prints!

Here are the products used to make this card:

Holiday Smooch With "Love You More"

Happy Holidays!
New DTM Kelly here and I am excited to share my first project for

I took a their romantic Valentine themed stamp set, "Love You More" and

I was inspired by Kristina Werner's guest post to add snow to their hair.
They are both dressed in holiday colors.
