Bo Bunny Inspiration (Kathy Berger)

by Kathy Berger

Yesterday FranticStamper was featured on the Bo Bunny Blog. We shared a sneak preview of the cards that were shared on that blog, and today we would like to share a little more. These are the four cards made by Kathy Berger for the Bo Bunny post. We hope you'll enjoy them.

Floral Fantasy

The circles of the Bo Bunny Bouquet paper of the Ambrosia Collection just screamed at me to make a flower of them. I used three different sizes of Spelllbinders scalloped circle Nestabilities dies to cut the layers. I then spritzed the circles with water with gold Pearl-ex, and crumpled the circles, reopening them gently and setting them aside to dry. Once partly dry, I stacked them, poked a hole in their centers and tied them together with a brad. I then pulled them up around the brad, and gently curled them back down. Once fully dry, the resulting flower has a ton of dimension and is fairly stiff.

I attached the finished flower to the corner of my card, which was made with a corner of the Ambrosia-Ambrosia paper that I fussy-cut and layered over the flip side of the Bouquet paper. The butterflies were punched from the Ambrosia paper and wrapped with embroidery floss to create their bodies.

Fashion Magazine

The lovely pinks of the Isabella Collection were very feminine. Its pretty patterns made me think of fabrics and fashion, so I created this page from a fashion magazine to showcase some of what I thought were the prettiest patterns in the collection.

The dress was cut from the Becoming paper using the Princess Dress die. The magazine page was cut from the Isabella paper (which was also used to create the main card layer) using the labels 7 die. The chevron decoration was hand cut from the Delicate paper.

The buttons were attached with glue dots, but not before one of them was threaded with pink baker's twine.

I Adore You

This card uses the Love Letters Collection from Bo Bunny and really takes advantage of how well the different papers coordinate. The hearts were cut from Keys and Puzzle, while the Pinking Circle was cut from Notes. Notes was used for the bottom layer, while the next layer was from Puzzle, but the flip side from what was used for the heart. The top layer was from Journal. All of the card was tied together with solid card-stock from American Crafts and a bow to match.

Products Used:
  • Bo Bunny Love Letters Collection
  • Martha Stewart Medium Heart Punch
  • Martha Stewart Medium Pinking Circle Punch
  • Ribbon Bow
  • Core'Dinations Adirondack Colors Card-stock


This very quick and simple card used a layer of Panache from the C'est La Vie collection with a small strip of paper from the Decoupage paper of the same collection, plus a saying from the Country Garden collection which I cut with a Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 1 Die. This card took literally just a couple of minutes to make added onto my white 5"x7" card base.
