All of Your Eggs in a Basket by Vicki

Hello friends!  Designer Vicki here today and it's with a heavy heart to let you know that this will be my final post for Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I have enjoyed my time here and have had so much FUN creating with these wonderful products!  I hope that you have enjoyed them as well!  I will be around on my blog and I hope to still be pulling out my Sparkle N Sprinkle goodies from time to time! :)

For my creation today, I'm using this REALLY adorable March release stamp set by Jan Mahew called Easter Parade!  I've got some really fun details on it to share as well!

That little chick just makes me giggle!!  :)

Here is the list of prodcuts used for my card today:

After coloring up this cute chick deguised as a bunny, I fussy cut it out using my scissors and then applied a layer of glue with the Nuvo (med) glue pen in the areas I wanted the Canary Flocking.  You got to make a fuzzy imposter bunny chick, right?!  All you have to do is use the glue pen to the areas you want it, then spinkle on the flocking and press it down and shake off the access!  That's it!  Once it dries, you have a fuzzy area!  It's so fun to play with!

And if you haven't tried out the Super Thick Embossing Powders, they give some really incredible results too!  I have stamped the open egg image from the stamp set and applied the Pink Cheeks, Neon and Spring Lilac Super Thick embossing powders over the open area and then very carefully heat embossed it from the underneath.

And here you can see what they look like heat set on my finished project. I used some scissors to fussy cut out each egg.  (It didn't matter to me that you couldn't totally see the black lines...they still look like eggs to me!)  I thought it would be fun to have "cracked" eggs, so since the embossing powder is so thick, you can take your piece and bend it until it cracks and it will give this sort of "broken glass" effect to it!  I've got the eggs woven between my grassy border at the bottom with some of them popped up with foam tape for dimension.  Really loving the shinny look the embossing powders give too!

I took a piece of brown colored cardstock and ran it through a basket weave embossing folder and rouned the top corners.  I thought this would give a fun basket look to the background of the card.  I then took the Pink Cheeks and the Spring Lilac Super Thick embossing powders again and added a bit more speckle to the background with them.

I stamped the sentiment in black ink and made a banner with it to go at the top of my card and then used the SNS Dimensional Glue to add the cut out chick and grassy cut border at the bottom.  Lastly, I've added some ribbon and a button over the sentiment banner area to finish it off before attaching to the white A2 sized top folding card base.

Hope you've enjoyed my 'Easter Egg Basket' card today and inspired you to check out the fun March release at Sparkle N Sprinkle!  Thanks for dropping in and I sure hope to see you around!!  Crafty Smiles and Hugs
