Another Easter Card {Good Egg Pastel Version}

Sorry to keep bombarding you with this little chick image but it’s so cute I couldn’t stop myself from using it in almost every Easter card I made this year. I found the stamp and the sentiment a few weeks ago as they were calling my name from the bin they were in at the store. You can see what else I’ve made with them here.

The card base is Gina K Luxury white base weight, layered with a So Saffron striped paper from Welcome Neighbor DSP paper pack. I stamped the chick/egg in Basic Gray ink on Whisper White paper and colored the image with my Aquapainter and ink pads for a soft watercolor effect.

The chick was “fluffed up” using Martha Stewart Flocking Powder in White. I applied 2 Way Glue all over the chick, then added the Flocking Powder. It’s really somewhat translucent, and just lets whatever color is underneath still show through the fluff.

I matted the image on Sage Shadow card stock, and stamped the sentiment in Sage Shadow ink. Then, using the Cropadile, I punched four holes along the bottom and added Circle Rhinestone Brads in shades of light blue and yellow. That was adhered to the base using Stampin Dimensionals.

Build A Bear Easter Card

This is an Easter card using the Build A Bear stamp Beary Best Friends. I chose to make this one for a little boy, but there is also a cute girl bear image in the set. The accessory set is called Beary Best Times and includes images such as this Easter basket, a skateboard, an umbrella, ice cream cone, and others.

The card base is Gina K Luxury White base weight, layered with blue polka dot paper from Welcome Neighbor DSP (part of the Sale-A-Bration catalog).

I stamped the bear and basket in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them in with Copic Markers. I mounted that onto Old Olive card stock and then using the Cropadile, added two orange Circle Rhinestone Brads in the upper right corner. That was attached using Stampin Dimensionals.

For the sentiment, I stamped “Happy Easter” from Well Scripted in Pumpkin Pie ink on Whisper White. I punched it out using the Large Oval Punch and layered it onto an Old Olive Scalloped Oval Punch out. That was also attached using Stampin Dimensionals.

Easter Card Trio

I happened to see this stamp in a bin at the craft store last week and scooped it up because it reminded me of SU’s A Good Egg. The matching Easter greeting was also too cute to pass up! Since I was snowed in today, I had time to make three versions of Easter cards–read on for the details.

Above: Card base is Barely Banana card stock, layered with Shades of Spring DSP. Stamped image is from Studio G, stamped on Gina K luxury white card stock, colored in with Copic Markers. After coloring in the chick, I applied glue using the 2-way Glue Pen and sprinkled Martha Stewart white flocking powder on top.  (Close up view below). I also embellished the shell using the Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

To finish off the card, I made a faux bow by taking Certainly Celery Satin Ribbon, making two loops, and pinching the center with a Circle Rhinestone Brad.

The second card is a 4 1/4″ square card, on Gina K luxury base weight card stock, layered with Tall Tales DSP cut to 4″ square. I stamped the chick and colored it in with Copic markers again, making it fuzzy with Martha Stewart flocking powder. Then, I layered it on Barely Banana card stock, and adhered it to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

Lastly, the third version uses many of the same techniques I described above. In addition, I paper pierced around the main layer and popped it up with Stampin Dimensionals. The patterned paper is from Shades of Spring and goes perfectly with the theme of this card.
