Time for challenge #4 hosted by Tracy. This week, Tracy asked us to make an
Easter card and/or an ABC
(anything but a card!) The design team members have been extra crafty this week-some awesome things and beautiful cards!
Join us this week---you'll need a Sassy Cheryls image, something to color with-(I'm learning of all the options out there!), some paper, scissors, adhesive, and a bit of creativity! The prize is a $5.00 gift certificate to Sassy Cheryls store-woo hoo! Link your blog or page to the challenge blog.
Okay, then, here's what I turned out...
SPECIAL EGG BOY
---and of course, he has a female counterpart who is equally as cute. Look at that bunny-now that's a cutie!
I colored with Copics and used Martha Stewart's flock on the bunny's tail. The "Hippity-hoppity" stamp came form the dollar bin at Michaels---as did the papers and the brads. I chalked the sky-no airbrush in my future!
Today, I decided to try a little candy box to add to a package I'm sending to my BFF and, since it will be arriving during the Easter season, I used an Easter image-one that might be a bit too appropriate for those up North...
EASTER BUNNY SNOWMAN
I think this guy was a special request. Cheryl is kind of partial to snowmen as are many of her followers. He is cute and, oh, so happy :)
I cut an oval and then an oval border. Sewing the rick-rack around the oval proved to be a bit of a challenge for me! I can sew straight lines all day long but those curves were murder! I colored with my Copics and glittered up the snowman with Martha's Glitter. I used the flock on his bunny ears! The box is a template that a friend shared with me some years ago-it's actually bigger than the one I found online and I needed it big enough to hold my candy treasure! A little ribbon, a bow tied with a Bow Easy and some Prima flowers and there you have it.
Unfortunately, I didn't make this until today and it was dark and rainy so my picture was less than lovely but here it is...
This bunny is by Lou Rankin-just love his soulful eyes!
So, hop quick like a bunny, over to the rest of the gangs' blogs for some inspiration and then, get all the details right HERE!
