Chick Ewe Out … The One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop team are focusing on Easter Chicks today. What a fun theme this is with Easter upon us.
I fell in love with the Welcome Easter Stamp Set from the Mini Catalogue the moment I saw it. With its bunny, lamb and chick what’s not to like?
I pulled this yellow Designer Series Paper from the Bird Ballad pack that I had sat on my shelf, which I thought a great pairing. Stampin’ Up! pride themselves on coordination, so it’s often worth checking back through your products. The Die for the eggshell came from the Dino Dies, that I cut in whisper white, stamped up with some flowers and coloured in.
The Stampin’ Up! Watercolour Pencils are amazingly soft and great for a project like this. Smooth out the colour by using a Blender Pen, which has a glycerine solution inside and blends the colours beautifully. I could have used our Alcohol Blends, but I wanted a softer look for this cute chick.
The new Stitched So Sweetly Dies are worth their weight in gold for that go-to shape for sentiments. It’s just darling with this chick stamped on it. A skinny bold sentiment and a twine bow and Chick ewe out … my card was complete.
Sometimes a Tag is all you need to help coordinate a simple gift to your card. I Die cut the same Eggshell shape and stamped and coloured it the same as the card. A smaller stitched rectangle was perfect for half the sentiment to sit. If your jar didn’t have the Kilner Jar Lid like this one, where I’ve added a circle of the paper, a belly band around the jar would have worked.
A Kilner Jar full of chocolate Easter Eggs, a cute tag and a matching card … Chick Ewe out, you’ve created a suite little set with very little effort.
I hope my creation has inspired you to get creative this Easter. Now, remember to ‘bunny hop’ on over to see what the others in the Team have created for us this month.
