Easter Chicks Basket of Fun

500pxl Easter Basket Chicks

I want to share one last Easter card idea.  I just had to stamp with the chick from the Honeycomb Happiness Sale-a-Bration stamp set because it’s just too cute!  (Eek…..there is only 8 days left to take advantage of Sale-a-Bration 2016.)  I was inspired by a tea towel I found in a Crate & Barrel catalog.  It had four bunny silhouettes in pink, yellow, blue and lavender.  Happy Easter Eve-eve-eve-eve!  Lol!

BASE:  This z-fold card is easy to create and super cute.  The “grass” is Old Olive measuring 2-1/2″ slanting to 3-1/3″ x 10-7/8″, scored and folded into thirds.  I was bad (wink, wink) and used the vintage MS grass punch.  You could use Fringe Scissors or tear the edge to get a grassy textured look.  Then generously sponge ALL the edges with Old Olive ink.

EASTER CHICKS:  The chicks from the Honeycomb Happiness Sale-a-Bration stamp set are stamped with StaZon Jet Black ink onto Pink Pirouette, Daffodil Delight and Pool Party.  I did fussy cut them out, they don’t have a lot of intricate areas so it went pretty quickly.  Yay!  Then I generously sponged each with their coordinating colored ink.  The beaks were colored with a Pumpkin Pie marker and topped with just a touch of Clear Wink of Stella.  Hey, I had to get a bit of sparkle in somewhere.  [grin]

SENTIMENT:  The Easter Basket is Crumb Cake stamped with the Hardwood background stamp in Sahara Sand ink.  The basket edges and band were sponged with Sahara Sand ink.  I did pop the basket band with Stampin’ Dimensionals to add more height (a good thing, Lol!).  “Happy Easter” is from the Easter Lamb stamp and was stamped onto Whisper White with StaZon Jet Black ink.  The ends were cut into vee’s to give a banner shape and popped with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I hope you have a great Thursday and enjoy today’s last Easter inspiration.  Thank you for stopping by today!!!
