Using BoBunny Stamps on Scrapbook Pages

Welcome back to another day of BoBunny Stamp inspiration. Today, our designers are sharing ways to use stamps on scrapbook pages.

Live Your Own Fairytale Scrapbook Page by Juliana Michaels #bobunny #enchantedgarden #scrapbookpage #stampsWhen I first laid eyes on Enchanted Garden, I knew immediately what I would use this collection for...scrapbooking photos of my nieces! Especially the youngest one who still loves fairies and princesses!

To create my page, I began by selecting the new Lavendar Dot Double Dot as my background. I then trimmed and cut the Enchanted Garden Mosaic and Magic patterned papers to create the large strip behind my photo.  The sweet little fairies were just calling to me, so I knew I wanted to add some of them to my layout.  I fussy cut two of them from the Pixies patterned paper. The title piece was also cut from this paper.

Next, I used the new BoBunny Stitches Stamp to create a border around the outside edge of my layout and along the edge of the large strip behind my photos. It really gives the look of machine stitching and is perfect way to add a touch of texture to a project. I wasn't done stamping though. I also used the To The Point Stamp. The "bubbles" looking stamp that comes with this set seemed like it would be perfect for adding a touch of magic to the fairies. I stamped it with clear embossing ink, added Stampendous Frantage Embossing Powder in Shabby Blue and then heat set it to melt the powder. This added a fun shiny and sparkly touch to the layout. I added the fairies to my layout using double sided foam tape and then tucked in some of the Elegant Kraft Wood Shapes. I even cut one of them in half to make the most of my embellishments.

The final touch was to hand punch all the little butterflies from various colors of BoBunny Double Dot. I then hand drew a butterfly image on each of them with a black pen to give them a stamped feel as well.

I must admit when I first started this layout, I had a totally different layout in mind! I wanted to use the sweet Doily stamps, that have just been released and was toying with the idea of creating a bright and bold layout, But then as I was going through all my gorgeous BoBunny goodies the Enchanted Garden collection literally fell off the shelf! I think it was a sign from the scrapbooking Gods, so I went with it. And boy am I glad I did!! I love how this layout came together, so much so that I have a step by step tutorial on my blog to show you how I made it. 


I played around with lots of blossoms and the Enchanted Garden ephemera pack to mainly complete this layout. I love the little surprises that you get in the ephemera packets and how well they are coordinated. So the ribbon, petals, book paper and trinkets came from the pack. 


I used three different ink colours to add hints of stamped images to the back ground, using the doily and lattice work stamp. I love the subtle hints of colour it adds to the background. I then went bold and added in black ink some paint splatter stamped images using the stained textures stamp set. 


Then to add a little interest to the layout, I added pops of colour by adding in a couple of the Harvest Orange bouquet petals to each of the flower clusters. This helps to draw the eye across the page. Please if you did want to see a little more detail on how I created this layout then head on over to my blog for a closer look.

Love this View by Amy Voorthuis


I have to admit I'm afraid to use stamps most of the time but this time I just kept adding more and more stamps! I'm addicted now lol.
Dragonflies are my favorite insects next to butterflies this picture was taken on our holiday just one week ago. They are so delicate and this one was hugh and had the most amazing colors.
I took out the Fantasy sheet from the Enchanted Garden collection and just stamped the Wall to Wall texture stamp in a pattern.


I'm not a hugh fan of orange but when I found those awesome flowers at a local scrapbook store on my vacation trip I had to use them. I can't make a layout without washi tape anymore it's so much fun to do!


I love the way all BoBunny collections can be mixed & matched for this layout I used Enchanted Garden & The Avenues such a wonderful combination.

Creating Cards with BoBunny Stamps

Did you enjoy the reveal of all of the new amazing BoBunny products coming your way very soon? What is your favorite? If you missed out on seeing them, make sure you check out all of the blog posts from last week.

This week, our design team is sharing fun ways to use our BoBunny Stamps.  Today, we are sharing how to use them on cards for every occasion you can imagine.

Parfum Astris by Romy Veul


For this card I used the gorgeous It is Written stamps on my background paper. I stamped with embossing ink and sprinkled white embossing powder on the stamped image, which I embossed with a heat tool. This will give your card just a little extra.


I used the gorgeous Enchanted Garden Layered Chipboard and some Noteworthy die-cuts to embellish my card. With all the pre-made embellishments that come with each collection it becomes really easy to add details to your project.

6 x 6 Paper Pad: Enchanted Garden

Chipboard: Enchanted Garden Layered Chipboard
Noteworthy: Enchanted Garden
Stamps: It Is Written Stamps


Hello by Romy Veul


I don't make masculine cards very often, but the gorgeous Somewhere In Time collection is just perfect for making them and made it really easy to come up with a card for my friend very quickly.
I used lots of layers of embellishments on this card and used the gorgeous doilies from the Stitches Stamps to add eeven more circular shapes to my card.


On this card I also heat embossed the stamped images, but this time I used brown instead of white embossing powder to create a more bold look. The beautiful doilies stamps suit the vintage theme perfectly, so they complement the Somewhere In Time collection really beautifully.

The 'Hello' text was stamped with the To The Point stamps.

You're Invited card by Maria Potapovich (mellpellmell)


You know, I decided to use a simple materials for this card I've made for the card stamped project...
Why not? This card is an invitation for a "horror party".  I've used only kraft paper, stamps and a little bit of inks.

When the gates are opened, card looks like this.

Stamps: Stitches Stamps, Gateway Stamps, Fright Delight Stamps


Meeeow... Card by Maria Potapovich (mellpellmell)


This time I also tried to minimize the materials used in this card. However, here I have added some more gesso and patterned paper to the kraft background. Creases on the paper added a little volume.

Patterned Paper: Cat Nap/Happy Tails, Woodland Winter
Kraft: Gift Bag Chevron
Stamps: Stitches Stamps, Gateway Stamps


Sunshine card by Keri Babbitt


I love stamping on cards, because the small size is a great backdrop for any of the BoBunny stamp sets.  Here, I used the Stitches stamp set to create a fun sunburst background for my card.  I used shimmer spray for stamping the long stitches, and permanent ink to layer stars over the top.  The medallion in the middle has been fussy-cut after stamping a doily shape onto patterned paper. 


The sunburst pattern is easy to create, by rotating the stamp block around the center point 8 times.  You could use the same stitch stamp each time, or alternate patterns like I did here.  I love the added summer-shimmer effect I achieved by lightly brushing the spray ink onto the stamp with a foam brush before each stamp.


BoBunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Best Day Ever, Cream Pop/Lemonade Stand
Cardstock: Sugar Dot
Stickers: Lemonade Stand Combo Sticker
Brads: Lemonade Stand
Stamps: Stitches


 Hello Summer by Keri Babbitt 


The stamping idea for this card was inspired by the lovely Megan Hoeppner, who created sno-cones out of geotag clips.  Here, I created ice cream cones by combining two stamps from the To The Point stamp set - a geotag and a striped triangle.


I used both opaque and glitter embossing powder here, to give some variety and shine to my creamy treats.  The dimensional adhesive helps their shape to pop.  For the "hello" sentiment I used a tone-on-tone technique.  I stamped the washi tape stamp with brown, and then the hello stamp in the same brown, but darkened and glossed-up with embossing powder.
