Today I'm very happy to be part of a fun Paper Crafts blog hop in celebration of the new special issue, Card Creations: Get Inspired!

A bunch of us were asked to create cards using something from our homes as inspiration. How fun is that? I immediately found inspiration in this...
...vintage bunny cup! :o) This little guy is one of my favourite vintage items -- he sits on our desk and always makes me smile! How could he not? :o) Here's the card that he inspired me to make...
He's supposed to be jumping for joy -- ah hee hee!
I was inspired by the bunny himself [of course!], his blue clothes, the yellow and the raspberry colours!
The stamps I used are from Starving Artistamps. To give the bunny a little more dimension, I trimmed around the upper body and lower body separately -- I attached the lower body with one layer of dimensional adhesive, and I attached the upper body with two layers of dimensional adhesive. The frame around him was die-cut with a Spellbinders die. The picture doesn't really show it, but the cloud paper [which is from Reminisce] is shimmery -- fun stuff! :o)
I had a blast working on submissions for this issue! I love getting card ideas from objects that are completely unrelated to paper crafting -- inspiration really can be found anywhere!
For more card fun, check out the blogs of the other crafters on the hop:
