Happy Easter ~ SFYTT



I was inspired by three different challenges to make this Easter card this evening...Jen's Sketch for You To Try, Our Creative Corner to think Easter, and the Shabby Tea Room Challenge #2 required a spring theme with stitching. My mom asked me to make her a couple of Easter cards to send to my neices, so this is the first one I came up with. I love it, but I'm not sure how much a 16 or 18 year old will love it...LOL!



The different layers of Jen's sketch inspired me to break out the Pawsitively Prints Designer Series Paper pack that coordinates with our Build-a-Bear stamp sets and dies. The DSP pack has some patterns that are perfect for a spring/Easter motif. I've forgotten how much I love working with this fun little Easter set, A Good Egg... How stinkin' cute is that hatching chick with patterned shell? The chick was colored in using two shades of yellow, Barely Banana & So Saffron...with a little touch of Pumpkin Pie on his wee beak.

So all of you shabby chic artists, please share some tips for this shabby chic wanna-be? Stitching? ...got that one...LOL!



Have a happy stamping day!

Paper: So Saffron, Old Olive, Whisper White CS, Pawsitively Prints DSP

Your cards just have that extra special something Stacey! This chick is ADORABLE and perfect for the sketch. I can't believe I've overlooked this dp in the SU catalog! As for the shabby look, its one of my favs and calls for lots of distressing. But, this card is PERFECT just as it is!
