Well, our first day of Spring was mostly sun all day and in the 40's; but, the wind made it feel much cooler. AND, can you believe that we are expecting 5-12" of snow this Wednesday and into Thursday. I want to catch that groundhog and put him in the freezer so he can feel how cold it is!!! =) Half kidding!!! I love animals way too much!
All week long this week, I'm sharing the contents of the Easter Basket that I made for my Good Friend and Fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Kadie, as a door prize for her Down Line meeting.
Let's take a peek at the basket again that I posted on yesterday's blog post and the first item:
Pictured above is the basket that I sent to Kadie. All the instructions to make the basket can be found on yesterday's blog post or click the link below to access the post:
Pictured above is the little check from Stampin' Up's Sale-a-Bration Honeycomb Happiness Stamp Set. Unfortunately, I forgot to take the picture before I wrapped it in a cello bag so the picture has a lot of shadows.
I stamped the chick from SU's Honeycomb Happiness Stamp Set on SU's Daffodil Delight Cardstock using SU Memento Black Ink.
Using SU's Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Marker, I colored in the chick's beak and feet. Although, you can't see his feet as I wrapped it before I took the picture. When the chick is unwrapped, his feet are down and make him look like he is sitting.
I fussy cut the chick out using my SU Snips.
I stamped Happy Easter from SU's Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set on SU's Whisper White Cardstock using SU Memento Black Ink. I punched it out using SU's Word Window Punch and adhered it to the chick with SU Stampin' Dimensionals.
I trimmed out a piece of Whisper White Cardstock 1" x about 6" and wrapped it around a Cadbury Egg. I adhered the ends together with Mono Multi-Purpose Glue making sure that the bottom of the Cardstock ring touched the very bottom so the egg could stand up straight.
I then adhered the little chick to the Cardstock ring with SU Glue Dots.
I put the little chick Cadbury Egg holder into a cello bag and tied it off with a pretty bow using some retired bakers twine from last seasons Sale-a-Bration.
I hope they like him.
That's all I have for today. Come back tomorrow where I'll share another item in the Easter Basket.
Have a good day!
