Meet Daba!


Welcome to Day 3 of Sister Stamps latest release. Today I'm introducing Daba, a sweet bunny with the cutest pose--a little mischievous and big on cuteness! I couldn't resist making a mini card with little Daba.


He was quick to color, with a few swishes of pink from some Copics and I inked in some grass to ground him. I used the smaller sizes of Reverse Wonky Rectangles as the base for the mini card, and added some twine for color.


I also created some pillow boxes with a quick tutorial  from About.com that I found here. There are lots of templates available, but if you have a CD, 6x6" patterned paper, a scissors and some adhesive, you can whip up a bunch of these in no time at all.


I added an optional finger notch with a 3/4" circle punch, to make it easier for the recipient to open the box. (Think McDonald's apple pie container)





The Daba chocolate bunnies were white embossed on brown cardstock. I tied the boxes with some rayon seam binding and topped them off with mini felt roses.

I hope you'll give the pillow boxes a try. They're the perfect size for a small gift or to hold a gift card, and they're especially cute for Easter with a little Daba on top.






A big shout out to Jenny for having me as a guest designer. It was such an honor and so much fun working with Sister Stamps, and I know I'll be using the stamps for other occasions besides Easter.

Thanks for joining me in sharing the new release from Sister Stamps. Akemi, Masa, and Daba will all go on sale beginning tomorrow, March 1st. See the sidebar on the Sister Stamps blog for a list of places where you can buy them.

Don't forget to visit Debi's blog for more inspiration and I hope you get your hands on this newest release! It's bunnylicious!

    Chee hoo!! These are adorable and only you could come up with something so darn cute! Love the first mini card using Daba as the main focus with all that lovely grass and the fun polka dots on the wonky card. Perfectly cute! And those chocolate Dabas!! Ah so cute!

  3. Donna, you are doing some amazingly ADORABLE work with these new stamps! WOW! I love that little bunny...looks like he just got busted! I love the soft coloring with Copics (I'd love to know the actual pink, blue and green Copic #s you used as I begin to slowly collect some basic colors!).
