Unique Cards Made Simple and Easy featuring Black Tie Affair with Ayumi

Hello BoBunny Friends!!

Welcome back to the BoBunny Blog today!  It's Ayumi here for another post highlighting the Black Tie Affair Collection. This line is quickly becoming a staple for me.  It is especially a go-to when I make special cards for engagements, weddings or as you can see just a basic love theme.  I went for some easy and simple cards this time, specifically to illustrate just how striking black and white are paired together.  I showed the finished card and then a couple close ups of fun features that I will explain later in the post.

Let me introduce a simple wedding card using, of course, Black Tie Affair and the We R Flower Punch Board.
This time I made flowers of XXS size (paper size is 1 3/4 x 6"). There are great instructions that come with the board itself, or you can just play around and see what sizes of flowers are your favorites! 

Punch the paper and attach fold lines.Fold the paper, kind of in a roundabout shape,so that the shape of a flower.

Attach glue and decorate with a brads.

Twist paper petals around the petal curler to mimic a natural,organic curve.

And, Voila! Flowers are finished! Super easy to use and even more fun to create multi layered flowers and even flower bouquets out of paper!  Aren't these elegant?

Thanks for stopping by and see you next time for more fun ideas, techniques and creative inspiration!.

Enjoy your happy day!

Elegant Wedding Card Ideas - with Black Tie Affair and Marilyn

Hello Everyone! It's Marilyn here to share with you two elegant clean and simple cards using the beautiful Black Tie Affair collection.


I started cutting three squares from different papers to create layers over a black card base. I adhered them with foam dots to create dimension between each layer.

I add the LOVE chipboard and cut three hearts from the combo sticker, I adhered them with foam dots. Next, I add some red gems for a little bit of sparkle.

My second card is simple and easy to create. I made the base with one of the Black Tie papers then I added a piece of black cardstock and made a dotted line with white gel pen on the edges.  I really love the end look of this trick. It looks like real stitching with the dark of the paper and the bright white of the pen.

I decided to use the Once Upon a Time big chipboard as the focal point of the card.

And, there you  go!  Two quick and easy cards, could be used for a wedding, anniversary, or just a kind thought and note to a friend.  Endless possibilities!

Thanks for stopping by....  Check the list of supplies below....

Until next time!!!

Chabby Chic Card Duo - Featuring Black Tie Affair with Ginny

Hello there, Friends, and a happy day to you all!  I'm here to share two cards that I created with the Black Tie Affair collection. If you're thinking I'm going classic black and white these cards might surprise you.  This collection works for shabby chic inspired projects too!

Shabby Chic Card 1  By Ginny Nemchak for BoBunny using Black Tie Affair and Mini Alphabet Punch Board

I've pulled out the whites and grays for these cards and layered them with sweet soft pink cardstock. This 6 x 6 card has loads of Noteworthy pieces and a large die cut doily.

 Shabby Chic Card 1  By Ginny Nemchak for BoBunny using Black Tie Affair and Mini Alphabet Punch Board

To make the ribbon slide I used the Alphabet Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers and created the tops of two A's but on opposite ends of a long strip. I simply wound the ribbon through then wrapped the tails and secured them on the back.  A few Double Dot Jewels are the perfect finishing touch!

Shabby Chic Card 2  By Ginny Nemchak for BoBunny using Black Tie Affair and Mini Alphabet Punch Board

This card is A2 sized and has more of the cut aparts and a smaller die cut doily. For this ribbon slide I punched the ends like in the previous slide...but left the ends squared off. I also trimmed a bit to make it narrower so as to fit the scale better.

The scrap from the cut apart makes an excellent tag when given a coordinating metal eyelet and twine. Instead of my usual poofy bow I created a smaller ribbon embellishment with the trim  and secured it in the center with a Double Dot Brad.

I'm having loads of fun creating unique embellishments with my Alphabet Punch Board. Of  course it's great for letters too!

Okay that's all for me. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

Black Tie Affair - 12 x 12 Layout with Mixed Media, BoBunny Essentials and We R Mini ABC Punch Board

Hello BoBunny Fans!

Emmy here today sharing a layout I created using BoBunny's Black Tie Affair collection and We R Mini Alphabet Punch Board.  I'm absolutely in love with both products! Possibilities to create your own masterpiece are endless!

To create the background I used two different pattern papers from the Black Tie Affair collection. I ruffled and distressed their edges and adhered them together using Sticky Thumb Adhesive. Using a stickable stencil and texture paste I created the white dimensional pattern.

To decorate my page I used various die cut elements from pattern paper and from Double Dot cardstock, which I adhered with Sticky Thumb Dimensional Adhesive Foam Dots.

I used also pre-cut elements from the Noteworthy pack matching the collection and stickers from the 12" sticker sheet.

For my title I used We R Mini Alphabet Punch Board and Double Dot cardstock. I decorated the letters with Double Dot Jewels.

Oversized Card and Tag Duo - Featuring Black Tie Affair and We R Mini ABC Punch with Denise

Hello Everyone!

It's Denise here today, to share a little love and a little Black Tie Affair. I created a card and a large tag with this beautiful, black and white collection. There is something that is just stunning with stark black and white, and just teeny spalshes of color.  For the first card, I picked the lighter shades from BTA.

Then for my next step, I created the card, using the super Mini ABC punch from We R. I then added some detail with fussy cut items and small die-cut blooms from BoBunny cardstock.

Here is the large tag, again, using fussy cut elements.

Black Tie Affair_Love Tag_Denise_05 Apr_03

There are so many pretty elements that can be fussy cut from the patterened papers, that it is hard to know which one's to choose!

I used a BoBunny stencil and black crackle paste for the title.

For the large tag, I also chose one extra colour to give the tag some pop and here I chose a Cerise pink. The little details were added with BoBunny pearlescent and a white gel pen.

I will definitely use this card and tag as a combo and will also use black and white gift paper for the gift.  I just know that it will be elegant and beautiful!

Thanks so much for stopping by the BoBunny blog today and we really hope to see you back tomorrow.

Have a super day!

"Love" - an A4 Styled Layout and Home Decor Piece - featuring Cottontail and We R Mini ABC Punch with Angela

Hello BoBunny Friends,

It's Angela here today and I would like to show you a layout in A4 format made with the Cottontail collection.


I started choosing the papers and, since the photo I wanted to use is a little bit dark, I went for white cardstock adhered on Pastels paper, which has a beautiful peachy color.  I stitched here and there the two papers with my sewing machine, without cutting away the threads of the stitch.


Then, I fussy cut a couple of flowers of the same orangish color from Springtime paper and arranged them at the bottom of the photo.


For the title, I decided to use big letters made using the Mini Alphabet punch board by WRMK.

I made each letter twice, in white cardstock and in peach, using the Pastels paper left-over. White on top and peach color underneath, to give a dimensional look.


To give even more interest to the title, I added a little stitch to each letter, always leaving the long threads of the stitching 'flying' around.

The journaling is a beautiful quote of Henri Matisse that I wrote with my old typewriter.


When I started, I had intended for this to be a layout.  After, I was all finished, I decided it deserved to be framed and displayed as a decoration in my home.

Check out the process video to see how this layout came together and I hope you are inspired in some way.

Thanks for stopping by today.
