Pin the Tail on the Bunny Supplies:

Step 1: Cut out your bunny shape. I used the rabbit from Cricut’s Pet Shop, but there is a similar Rabbit here in the Silhouette Store. To create a large shape simply place two 12×12 sheets right next to one another and cut.  When done, use a piece of scrap paper to adhere the two halves together.

Step 3:  Adhere your layers to form the large bunny design.

Step 4:  Cut bow design from your favorite Glitter Silk color.  I love the Glitter silk, it cuts beautifully, and gives that extra bit of sparkle without leaving glitter everywhere.  Adhere to neck of bunny.

Step 5:  Cut tails for your bunny from white Glitter Silk papers.  I used a large flower shape, but you could use a circle or scalloped circle, and number each.  You will need one tail for each of your games participants.

Step 6:  Hang bunny on vertical surface at eye level for your players.

Step 7:  Give each player one of the tails that has a little adhesive stuck on the back side.  Blind fold the player and have them place the tail where they think it should be.  The player who is the closest wins.

I hope you have fun creating this game for the little ones in your life.

Step 4.  Sand all your leaves for a nice look.  Do not forget to use your dust buddy for clean-up.

Step 5.  Using the edge of your table, curve the egg pieces as well as the designer paper.  Once completed, attach the designer paper before the egg is assembled.  By curving the pieces first they will take a nicer shape.

Step 6.  Curl the pedals prior to attaching them to the base.

Step 7. Layer the leaves on 1 at a time.  There will be enough for 2 layers.

St. Patrick’s Day Layout

Mary Pat here with you and today I have a fun St. Patrick’s Day layout to share.  I had a lot of fun creating this layout because I got to do some fun techniques:  Misting, sanding, and layering!

P1090813(1)h

I started with misting the white cardstock with a gold shimmer mist.

P1090814(1)

Using my Silhouette I cut out an overlay with shamrocks.  I then used my Sand It Gadget and Dust Buddy to sand and distress my overlay.

P1090815(1)

I then layered my white cardstock on to a green cardstock that matches the green in the overlay.

Next, I layered my 4×6 photo with the new Core Basics Patterned Paper.

P1090818(1)

Finally I layered everything on my layout.  I added a title also cut using my Silhouette and Core Essentials cardstock.  For some cute little touches I added the foam shamrock stickers from Darice.

Step 2.  Cut the largest hearts out of the same Core Dark Green Flower Cardstock and the smaller hearts out of Core Dark Green Plaid Cardstock.  Once cut, glue the smaller onto the larger heart and attach to the front of the card.

Step 3.  Cut the LUCKY phrase out of Core Essentials Dark cardstock, Core Dark Green Plaid Cardstock, Core Couture Glitter Cardstock and Core Glitter Silk Cardstock.  Once the pieces are all cut you can assemble the layers taking time to ensure that they full dry.   Once complete, this can be fastened to the front of the card.

Butterfly Luminary

Hi there Core Fans!  It’s Joann here with you today.  This month we are featuring projects made with the fabulous Core Vellum and Core Vellum Quotes, and today I decided to combine both for you for this particular project. This was my first time using Core Vellum and I must tell you it’s a pleasure to work with.  In the past  when I’ve used regular vellum I have not had a lot of success with heat embossing… Not the case with Core.  Your heat embossing works like a charm.  I will never use any other vellum again now…

Joann-Larkin-Butterfly-Luminaire-Supplies-e1422217397729To make this project, follow these steps.

Step 1. Start by cutting a piece of White cardstock 11″ x 6 1/4″ and using the Spellbinders Butterfly Magic Die cut out your pattern.  For the best possible box use the Core Basics 80 lb or 110 lb. card stock!  Next, taking a piece of Coredinations Vellum Baby Pink in the same size, emboss it using the Spellbinders Dainty Dots Embossing Folder.  Once the vellum is embossed, attach the vellum to the White cardstock and then roll into a circle.  Note:  try to curve your cardstock prior to attaching it in a circle.  This will allow the project to hold the shape better.

Step 2. Using the Darice Nesting Rectangles Embossing Essentials Die, cut out the Vellum quote and the paper using the next larger size.  The flowers are stamped using Versamark and Party Pink Embossing Powder and heat embossed prior to die cutting them out.
