‘Lil Chickee Easter Treats

Hello everyone! I hope you are enjoying this Easter. I am having Easter dinner at my grandparents’ house where I will get to visit with many people in my family, so of course, I didn’t want to show up empty handed! This is the little treat holder that I made to give to each person.

Chickee Easter Treat 1

Chickee Easter Treat 2

Here is a link to the tutorial by Connie Stewart, that I followed to put the base of this “egg throne” together. The exceptions to her tutorial are that I used a 1 3/4″ circle punch for the egg to sit in, and I used my Scalloped Tag Topper punch for the top.

First I stamped the chick from Honeycomb Happiness on watercolor paper with black archival ink to keep it from smearing, then I used my aqua painter to pick up some Crushed Curry ink to color him (or her?) in. I used my Pumpkin Pie marker to color the feet and beak, then punched it out with my 2 1/2″ circle punch and added a rhinestone studded flower in Watermelon Wonder. I adhered a strip of 1″ x 2″ piece of Birthday Bouquet DSP at the base before gluing the chick image to the egg holder. Finally, I stamped the sentiment from Easter Lamb stamp onto whisper white cardstock and punched out with the Washi Label punch and adhered above the image. A little tip regarding the Easter Lamb stamp – you may not always want to stamp both the image and the sentiment together, so I cut the sentiment apart from the main image and mounted it on the end of my wood block, this way I don’t have to worry about masking off the main image every time I want to use just the sentiment!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Easter Lamb Flap Fold Card

Well, I tried to get this post done in time to participate in my upline’s “Team Stamp It Easter Blog Hop”, but unfortunately time just got away from me. 😦 So, i’ll have to just enjoy the posts that they share!

Ever since I saw this tutorial by Julie Davidson for Splitcoaststampers, I have been wanting to try this fun fold out. This is what I came up with:

Easter Lamb 1

Easter Lamb 2

Easter Lamb 3

I followed her instructions to create the base of the card, then I used the largest scalloped circle from the Circles Collection Framelits to create the curved scalloped edge. I colored the lamb with the Signo white gel pen to make it’s wool stand out against the dark background of the Crumb Cake cardstock. Of course I just HAD to incorporate some of the Blushing Bride glimmer paper too, so I used the petite petals punch to punch a flower out that is popped up with a dimensional to tuck the flap behind and hold it in place.

Thanks for stopping by!
