First off, I have to tell you about the stamp set I used for this one! Sweet Tweets (not to be confused with Sweet Teats, which I’ve caught myself saying many times on accident), it is a retired set from TAC and I think these chicks are just so cute! I love their long legs and the simplicity of each image! All of the following cards are basically the same layout on a 4-1/4 square card. On the first two cards, I used PTI Stamper’s Select White Cardstock. After using this paper, I won’t settle for any other white cardstock as a base of a card! Cuttlebug and Nestabilities make it this sketch so easy! I used the Swiss Dot and Petite Ovals. It goes together easy-peasy! I colored the images with Prismacolor Double-ended Art Markers. I almost forgot to mention that I did sneak PTI Limitless Labels in there for the “Happy Easter!” I only used the sentiment on one card because I wanted these to also be good for spring cards, baby cards, or any-occasion cards.
On the next two cards, I used the Spring DCWV stack from last year, Nestabilities scalloped rectangles and ovals, and the Cuttlebug embossing folders. I apparently didn’t use Swiss Dot for every card! The one on the left is Swiss Dot just turned with the dots facing down and the “holes” facing up. I liked how it gave a softer look. The one on the right, however, was created with the Paisley embossing folder! These are still basically the same layout as above, just one more added layer….still easy-peasy! I also added a little pink bling for flowers!
And the final two cards, well they are just the same, no surprise, but I did use a different stamp set, oh! And it looks like I used a different embossing folder!! This stamp set is called “Be Curious” and it is also a retired TAC set! Unfortunately, they retired a lot of good ones! These flowers are just so cute to me and make me smile! Just in case you are wondering, I use a Big Shot to do my die cutting and embossing. I have been very satisfied with it for over a year. It is compatible with just about everything out there, and I think I get a great result!
Okay, one last thing! For an added bonus, I thought you might like to see my stinkin Easter baskets!
I had some white treat boxes that I cut the handles off of, I used my Creative Memories custom cutting system, ovals, to create the "egg", and to cut the handle out, and then I glued it to the box. I added a bit of embellishments and layers and this is what I got! I have seen some other baskets like this before at Splitcoast Stampers, but I do not know the original gallery or creator. Stampin UP! Pun Fun is the stamp set that I used. This set is a bit on the pricey side, but so far, I've used it to make plenty of Easter stuff, and a Birthday card for my sister. I mounted the set "unconventionally" by cutting of the phrases and mounting those on the side of the block that way I don't have to use the words if I choose not to, or worry about masking them off.
Thanks for checking out my stuff! Hopefully I will get a chance to create something new this weekend to share with you!
