Happy Easter

Good Sunday morning and Happy Easter! For this fun Easter card, I started by embossing a piece of coconut white card with the Daisy Burst embossing folder.  I cut a small strip off of one end and added a strip of acetate between it and the larger part of the embossed background, then added mounting foam to the back to raise it.  I cut another piece of coconut white card the same size as the background and added a strip of self adhesive sticky sheet so it lined up with the acetate, then peeled the backing off and added Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz to it.  I added the background over it so the glitter showed through the acetate area.  Next I cut eight large carrots from the Easter Bunny Egg die set and coloured them with Spiced Marmalade and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide inks.  I( glued them across the acetate area, offsetting them.  I cut the Happy Easter Egg die out of coconut white card that had been inked with Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide so it matched the carrots.  I cut the sentiment in white and glued it on top of the egg and sprayed it with adhesive and glittered it.  I seated the egg on a double set of scalloped eggs, slightly offset to show the scallops and added it with foam to the lower part of the card.  I added a white bow to the top.  Three yellow chicks adorned the lower edge of the card, inked lightly with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink.  White on white mats and layers completed the card.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  8" in size.   All for now, Sue x

Happy Easter to you Sue and Colin and all that pop in today. Oh and watch your backs for any cheeky April Fool tricks, after 39yrs of marriage I'm kind of expecting various bits of a die collection wrapped within a 'pretend' egg ! This 'keeper' of mine thinks up some weird and wonderful ways to disguise your dies Sue so I have no idea they are there until they fall out lol better watch out or I may end up with a rather large dental bill lol. Your carrots look fresh and good enough to roast those little chicks look cute enough to cuddle in my lap, and your Easter sample is just an all round bundle of happiness. It's so bright and cheerful, I know a lot of people prefer the typical religious card on this day but you can't help but smile at this sample its a beautiful breath of fresh air. Thank you for working so hard last year to bring us some beautiful samples with your beautiful dies, and your never ending inspiration, to bring us some amazing shows yesterday. Our own 2yr old Easter bunny arrived for a visit yesterday with her winning Easter bonnet that mummy made so today I'll put my feet up and catch up with the show I missed but obviously recorded ☺
So, have a lovely day (hopefully resting) but I doubt that very much ! But whatever your day brings I hope it's full of sweet energy boosting calories in the form of chocolate and lots of love 😊 have a great day xxx

Pauline Austen said...

Morning Sue, great shows yesterday, it was great to see you demoing again. You seemed shattered but happy by the end of the day. Once again you proved to me that I really did need yet more of your dies. I haven't finished playing with the last bundle I bought,
Lovely card today. I like the idea of extending the EF with acetate. Must try that one. Making a 'man's 'card today using your tool box dies. Really pleased with how it's looking,
Happy Easter everyone. Hugs xx Pauline

Good Morning Sue and Happy Easter to Colin and all the rest of our little blog family. Beautiful card and very appropriate for the event. Those carrots look just about good enough to eat..... just like my tiny chantonnay ones I will be dishing up for dinner today. Oh.... by the way I loved what you did with the flora die yesterday.....
Who would have thought when you had finished the card that the die you used was a circular die. You are one clever lady. Have a lovely Easter Sue and family you certainly deserve it. Sending best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Lisbeth said...

Happy Easter to you too! Lovely card today, I love the chicks. It was great to see you on TV again, I did enjoy the shows and look forward to seeing you and all the samples at Ally Pally. There were some really lovely cards but they didn't appear on TV long enough for me to work out how you had made them. Perhaps they will have their day on the blog.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, Happy Easter to you, your family and Wilsonettes everywhere. I love this quirky card; the embossing folder is so pretty, the carrots look really edible and the little chicks are adorable.

No sunshine at the moment but at least it is dry so those who wish to will be able to roll their eggs down Norah's hills but I'll just stick to my chocolate one whilst catching up on your shows:-)

Clai01 - I too think Peter would like this card:-)

Have a lovely day everyone.
