Hello, EveryBUNNY

The new challenge at Shopping Our Stash is called, "Here Comes Peter Cottontail" and if you guessed we'd like to see Easter cards, you're 1/3 correct... we'll also take Passover greetings; OR anything with a bunny on it. So there are plenty of ways to go. I'm representing Team Bunny!

I've been longing to make some big collages, but there just isn't enough time in a day; so I decided to settle for making a collage card. This sweet bunny came from a very tattered, garage-sale copy of a Little Golden Book. He's inhabiting a background made from torn vintage paper, beautiful trading stamps that Stephanie found at a thrift store, and not very much in the way of official papercrafting product, I'm afraid; except for several older, out of print Eyelet Outlet Washi styles, and a bit of Shabby Shutters Distress Oxide ink around the edges. I used my ancient We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper though, and quite a bit of Scotch Create Gluestick... does that count?  I had so much fun making my bunny card that I didn't want to stop collaging, so I made a few more cards:

I found this canary on a swing in an ancient, falling-apart book about pets while I was looking for bunnies, and I couldn't resist him. He was kind of small for an A6 card, so I filled in with a rose illustration from the same book. 

But then I found ANOTHER rose illustration... and a couple of really nice butterflies; also I had leftover torn bits of sheet music, foreign text and dictionary paper that were too small to keep, but too big to throw away, so I thought I might as well glue them onto a background. Collage-making often snowballs in this manner, I find, lol. 

Hop (like a bunny!) over to SOS and see what the rest of the crew have created, then start planning what you'll link up with us this fortnight!


  1. Beautiful cards, I can't decide which I like better. Your collages are always perfect. That bunny is adorable, the flowers gorgeous and the bird and butterflies are awesome.

  2. Beautiful collages, Lauren! You remain the collage queen!

  3. I just had to come and see these beauties for myself and I'm so glad I did! I just discovered Shopping Our Stash challenge this morning and I'm crazy over your beautiful spring cards. I hope you don't mind me pinning this page for future inspiration. I love how you used found materials to create your collage style cards. I have a lot of that kind of stuff left over from my junk journaling days. I'm feeling the need to pull it out again and start getting creative with them. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration!

  4. Ohhhhh your collage cards are just sooooo gorgeous!!
    Can you do an online collage class for us (ok for me??)

  5. You still retain the title of Collage Queen! These are all so amazing!
