Default Digital Easter Bunnies set



I wanted to give you guys a little Easter Present. I drew these bunnies to use as digital images. You can resize them & you can adjust the darkness of the lines, like any JPG.

THEY ARE BIG (about 6 inches)

attached here (JPGS in thumbnails):

1) boy bunny with baskets
2) girl bunny with flowers
3) bunny with goggles & chocolate Easter rabbits

They can be scaled down any way that you like to do that (print at a percentage is the easiest way I know of--using scaled printing in your printer settings or in photoshop.) Word to the wise on resizing: of course, when/if you resize, just make sure to write down the percentage you've used, so you can resize the paper pieces to scale (been there, forgot that.) ;O)


Accessories to come too:


I'm working on paper piecing pages too (the parachutes & the clothes etc.) I also made accessories (stuff for the bunnies to throw, clouds, etc...)
I would love some feedback, if anyone has any trouble with them, so I can fix them up if need be.


Copyright jazz:
These are intended for use just like any other angel policy image. You can use them for personal use & feel free to use them to make any handmade items that you'd like to sell. The images themselves, however, are copyright... (not that they're all that, but they're made with the intention that they be shared for free.)

Link them, pretty pretty please, if you try them. I'd love to see your creation. :O)

Digital hugs & may your Easter be blessed with love & creativity,
:O)
Mel

All the blog posts with paper pieces etc are HERE


P.S. Blog post here.

For those of you who are wondering how to re-size your images...Some images may look big on your computer, but I just printed out some of Mel's images and they are the perfect size for a card.

1) Open Microsoft Word
2) Go to INSERT > PICTURE > FROM FILE
3) To resize: Right click on the picture
4) Go to FORMAT PICTURE > Go to SIZE tab > Make sure LOCK ASPECT RATIO is checked to make sure that the image doesn't get distorted and stays true to the way it was drawn
5) You can resize using the SIZE AND ROTATE menu under the SIZE TAB entering in the desired measurements in inches
6) Hit OK

OR

You can go back to the Word doc and use the image handles to make the image the size you want - click on picture for the image handles to appear and you will see a rectangle surrounding the image with smaller squares to make the image bigger or wider. Only use the corner squares to resize so that the image doesn't get distorted. I've attached a doc for those visual learners.

Hope this helps...

I was able to resize just using my printer options. I clicked on the image (so it's full screen) then chose 'Print'. Then I clicked on 'Preferences', then clicked on the 'Effects' tab and down on the left there is a box that says 100% of normal size. You can choose any percentage you want. I printed mine at 50% and they are about 2 1/2 inches tall (and cute as the dickens!)

Also, a tip...if you want to paper piece but want to use scraps (instead of feeding full sheets of cardstock/paper through)...on the top sheet of paper in your printer mark one of the corners (like BL for bottom left). Then print your image. Now place your scrap on top of the printed image and adhere with a temporary adhesive. Place the sheet back in your printer tray with the BL in the bottom left corner (so you know it's going to print the same place again). Now print it again. You can send that same base sheet through as many times as you want and you can use up some of your smaller scraps of patterned paper.

What a brilliant idea! I just bought an Expression and I would love to try it out. (I am using the trial version of SCAL and can't wait to buy it. I would love it if you would share your .cut file with everyone (if that's okay with you that is.) Thank you so much for the wonderful idea. Pure genius!!! :O) mel

You are such an angel to write out these directions thank you ever so much!! I have a bad migraine, family visiting and a LOT of wedding invites to make & didn't have time to write out the instructions. I think you did a much better job than I would have, beyond a doubt! (I have a hard time with technical things...) Thank You Thank You Thank YOU!!! :O) mel

Sorry you're having trouble with them. If you right click on the little thumbnails, and click save image as (at least in mozilla firefox) then it should let you save it. If you have any trouble, please don't hesitate to PM me with your email & I'll send them to you. :O)

You are wonderful Jane!!! Your tips are perfection. It's so great that everyone is posting their particular printer directions, since there are so many varieties of settings. Your paper piecing tip is pure gold & your card is so sweet. A gazillion thank yous for the directions & the tips. :O) mel

You are quite welcome, Mel...will have some fun playing with these cuties this week! You are too kind to offer the other parts for paper piecing. I am just starting to work with digital images so I had to experiment on what works for me. The printer option is a good way to resize too.

If you are having trouble downloading the files, right click on the files and hit SAVE AS TARGET and you should be able to save in the desired folder.

Hi mel! I wanted to post my finished card. I just LOVE these images! they are so cute!! and I had a fun time coloring him in. I printed the image onto white CS and then I used my Prismacolor pencils along with my OMS and blender stump to color it in with. As well as inking the sides with my TH distress ink for added detail. The yellow CS is from DCWV and the ribbon is from the Dollar Tree. I decided to use some sky blue CS and DP from MM here as I thought it was appropriate for an air balloon. Lastly, the sentiment is from Studio G and stamped in colorbox pigment ink. Thanks so much!

Here are some cards I made for my kiddos for Easter:

- Boy Parahopper
- Girl Parahopper

Thanks Mel for offering these cute bunnies. You can also use the girl bunny for birthdays and a Spring card. Oooohhhhh, I might have to do some more playing!
