Easter Project and Giveaway


Thanks for stopping by this Saturday morning... I have had several emails/requests on how I created these adorable chicks for my cards/projects this past week, so with that being said... I will include the details on this Blog post.

For the egg, I used my oval Nestablilites.  After the oval was cut out, I ran it thru one of my favorite embossing folders by Quickutz called Polka Dots.  I then used a pair of my pinking scissors and cut thru the center of the oval. 

For the baby chicks, I used the following punches.  Head (SU 1 1/4 Circle Punch)  Body (SU 1 3/8 Punch) Hands (SU Small Heart Punch) and Chick Hair (Martha Steward grass punch - left over scraps)

***My chicks on today's card/project were created with the following supplies:  Pail - Archivers, Cardstock - SU Crumb Cake, Almost Amethyst, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Barely Banana, Pretty in Pink and Pumpkin Pie.  Border Punches - Marth Stewart Grass and Bunny (both punches are hard to find) **The chicks nose can be created using a corner of any square or star punch.  For the eyes, I used my Close to Cocoa marker. *All shapes were sponged using the corresponding ink to make it pop.


Before I go, I also wanted to share a quick card I created for a friend of mine.  Quite a simple card to mass produce and looks quite fancy with all of the layers & embossing...

Please leave a comment, one lucky winner will receive one of my Easter cards and some twine.  The winner will be announced on Monday, March 12th.  Enjoy your weekend!
