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.

More Colors, More Leaves

It must be pretty obvious by now that I LOVE this tree from Season of Friendship. Instead of using the leaves that come with the set, I decided to try this large leaf image from Autumn Harvest and it worked pretty well.

The card base is Chocolate chip textured card stock, layered with DSP from Autumn Vines DSP. The image layer is Whisper White, with a chipboard frame underneath. I covered the chipboard with Pumpkin Pie craft ink and then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder.

I stamped the images in Basic Brown ink and watercolored the leaves with my Aquapainter and the following ink pads: Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie, Creamy Caramel, and Kiwi Kiss.

With the cropadile, I punched a large hole in the chipboard and put in an eyelet from Hooray kit. Then I looped a piece of 5/8″ Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon through and tied it with Hemp Twine.

Autumn Harvest Fall Cards

I don’t usually send Halloween or Thanksgiving cards, but I like the look of them, so I try to send them to people with fall birthdays, or as a seasonal Thank You.

The above card uses the Woodgrain BG stamp. I really don’t like using BG stamps because they’re so hard to ink up, but this was one of the exceptions because I like the image a lot!

Card base is Dusty Durango Textured card stock. I then stamped Woodgrain in Basic Brown ink onto Creamy Caramel card stock. The main image is from Autumn Harvest, stamped in Brown Stazon on Very Vanilla card stock. I used a mask to stamp the pumpkins and colored in the images with my Earth Elements Watercolor Crayons and Aquapainter. I layered the vanilla card stock onto Chocolate chip and tied a piece of Chocolate Chip Twill Ribbon around the front. The sentiment is from Chit Chat Rub Ons, applied onto Dusty Durango card stock, punched out with the Modern Label Punch, up on dimensionals.

This next card uses Autumn Harvest again, and of course my new favorite Woodgrain BG stamp!! Card base is Dusty Durango Textured card stock, layered with polka dotted More Mustard Autumn Vines DSP.

Across the bottom of the card, I took a strip of Creamy Caramel stamped with Woodgrain in Basic Brown ink and layered it onto a strip of Chocolate Chip card stock. That is acting as my “log” on which I placed my pumpkins.

Pumpkins from Autumn Harvest were stamped in Brown Stazon on Very Vanilla card stock, colored in with Earth Elements Watercolor Crayons and Aquapainter. Then, I cut out each image and attached it to the card using dimensionals.

The sentiment is a Chit Chat Rub On on Dust Durango card stock, punched out with Modern Label Punch and popped up with dimensionals. As an added touch, I “stitched” around the label with my White Gel Pen.

Inside both cards, I lined them with a piece of Very Vanilla card stock to make writing easier to read.
