I just wanted to drop you a quick note to wish you a Happy Easter! While I’m at it, I thought I’d show you a quick handmade Easter card.
I used the Owl Builder Punch to create both of the little paper punch art chicks plus their “eggs.” Using my Paper Snips I cut off the feet and ears from the punched-out owls and eggshells, and for the designer paper shells I made diagonal cuts across the centers to create the cracked and broken edges.
All pieces of the little chicks are from the Owl Builder Punch, I just punched them out of scraps of different colored card stock and then paper pieced them together. A little sponging around the edges of the chicks give them some dimension, along with using Stampin’ Dimensionals to make them pop off the card a bit. The eggshells were punched from a couple of the patterns included in the Festive Birthday Designer Paper collection.
The Easter card sentiment was stamped in Crushed Curry ink and created using a couple of the words from the Crazy About You stamp set (wood-mount, clear-mount, or photopolymer), which is retiring soon. So many stamps — 33! — to create a boatload of customized greetings.
Thanks for checking in, and I hope you have a wonderful and happy Easter with your family and friends.
