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 Cards {Boy & Girl}

I made this card for a color challenge on Splitcoast. The colors were Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow, and Dusty Durango (plus a neutral like Whisper White or Very Vanilla). An additional option was to use patterned paper.

The card base is Dusty Durango textured card stock, layered with Autumn Vine DSP in a Sage Shadow pattern. On top of that is Chocolate Chip textured card stock. All the corners of this card were rounded using the Corner Chomper set to the 1/2″ setting.

I stamped the boy bear from Beary Best Friends in Chocolate Chip ink on Very Vanilla card stock and colored him in with Copic Markers. Again, I rounded the corners and layered it onto Dusty Durango card stock. Then, using the paper piercer, I pierced holes in the Very Vanilla card stock and attached it with Stampin Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from Picture This (Hostess Level 1 set from the Occasions Mini). I stamped it in Sage Shadow ink on Very Vanilla card stock and cut it out with the Word Window Punch. That was layered on a Dusty Durango Modern Label Punch, adhered with Stampin Dimensionals. On either side of the label, I added Chocolate Chip Epoxy Brads, also from the Occasions Mini.

Since I had the Beary Best Friends stamp out, I decided to make a girl Build A Bear version. The card base is Going Gray, layered with Rich Razzleberry textured card stock and a polka dot paper from Shades of Spring DSP. The dots are pale plum on Very Vanilla, very subtle.

I stamped the bear in Going Gray ink on Very Vanilla card stock, coloring her in with Copic Markers. That is layered onto Rich Razzleberry textured card stock. I added a border at the bottom using the Scallop Trim Border Punch.

To finish off the card, I stamped “from me to you” from So Many Sayings in Rich Razzleberry ink on Very Vanilla card stock. I cut that out with the Word Window Punch and layered it onto Rich Razzleberry Modern Label Punch.
